Let this be a lesson to you. If anyone sends you an e-mail from e-bay that starts off Dear E-bay member, rather than your username, DO NOT CLICK THE LINK! I received a couple of these and like a dumbass clicked the link then someone hijacked my account and listed a bunch of Disney tickets for sell. Thankfully, e-bay caught it and retracked all the listings. I had to go in and change my password, then receive a phone call from e-bay confirming it was me. What a mess.

Other than that, life is moving along. In three weeks, I hit the big 30 and in 4 weeks, I have the big S (surgery). I am sooooo excited. Actually, having my surgery the week after my b-day is making my b-day more bearable. I can't wait to go shopping. I've already told Larry that after the swelling goes down, I am taking some of his bonus money and hitting the mall. Curves is going well. It's pretty fun, and I can stick with it. Monday I wanted to laugh so bad though, but I didn't want the other people in the room to think I was laughing at them. The median age is probably 50, so I am definitely in the minority. Also, the remix CD they use has a woman's voice on it every 30 seconds telling you to "Change stations now." All the ladies will be going full force, then we hear, "Change stations now." We all stop and move as one to the next station. I wanted to giggle at the absurdity of it all.

I'm working my way through The Secret, and I will post my thoughts when I finish. For now, I am trying to use the ideas as a way to think more positively, rather than for selfish gains. We'll see.

I used to do a workout like that. Then again, I used to do a LOT of things.

As for the book, my thoughts are similar to yours, that positive thinking is a good idea. My only concern (being from a Christian perspective) is that this book, for a non believer, suggests that not God, but the universe should be the recipient of thanks and the focus of our energy. Directs attention away from God, and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Other than that, you're right. One could completely put a Christian twist on that, and I'm sure someone is already working on it.
