It may seem to those who listen to me on the radio/watch me on tv that I am a good time girl! Or maybe it doesn't seem that way, but in my real life those who know me (and love me!) would say that I'm not really fun. I am kind, compassionate and a decent person most of the time. I wish others well and find the good in most. Sometimes I am a bit of a pushover. I do like to avoid conflict. I am not super judgmental of the variations of human behavior on the whole- I mean the clear wrong doers don't make me smile but beyond the super awful, I can pretty much see anyone's side of his/her story. Yes, admittedly, when I get my delivery right, I am funny. But I am too serious and moody. I am often anxious (usually anxious). I rarely allow for fun. It is like I don't know HOW to have fun. I don't drink. I don't use drugs recreationally. In high school and the start of college- my fun activity of choice was Karaoke- often alone in my room. Oh Gd. I've said too much. On the occasion I eat for fun, typically I do it alone- I think cake eaten while I'm alone tastes better- candy and poptarts too. Again, I've said too much! I used to LOVE to dance at parties, but then I turned into a self conscious grown up. Well... last night Keith and I went to our friend Ivy's birthday party.And I had FUN! I think I might have even BEEN fun. Ivy decorated her party (BEAUTIFULLY!!!) with strands of sparkly beads, ribbons, candy and super fun warm friends. I promptly stole one of the strands of sparkly beads and turned it into a necklace! I danced. I talked to friends we hadn't seen in years. I laughed. I packed a bag of candy to eat in private at a later date! Keith and I then went out to a late night dinner at Quality Italian in NYC and I had some chicken parmigian that looks like a pizza and WAY too much bread. We had such a good time I am only regretting the late night eating fest a little bit! But highlight of the night had to be the Karaoke Ivy and her husband Jeff arranged. I can't remember the last time I let go like this. Really. It was like she planned it for me...which she didn't...but so what! Here is a snippet of my hogging the Karaoke set up. My husband says when I am happy my teeth come out. Uh oh. Thanks Ivy for including us. We had the best time. Really! xo Jenny P.S. I made a new treadmill video yesterday.
