Its 1:30am and once again I am awake. I have the oddest thoughts the later it gets. I haven't ever really thought of shaving or how it came about. It has always just been a fact of life. I guess I thought even the pioneer women did it but now I know what it wasn't ever mentioned in any of the books I have read. I have shaved various parts for various reasons. I remember being not able to wait until I could start to shave my legs. I remember when the shaving spread. Now I am so lazy its a miracle if I shave at all. I should become french so I wouldn't feel the need to shave. Society pushes these things on us. Men don't do it.

Anyway here is what got me thinking of this weird train of thought.

Interesting History Lesson of the Day:

How did the popularity of leg shaving start in the U.S.??
After the males who fought in WWI returned home to the U.S. they asked their wives to start shaving their legs and the tradition has continued since then. Where did they get this idea from? European prositutes shaved their legs to give themselves a younger appearance.

See, I told you it came from men, now I want to shave even less.

Aries the Ram

The Ram

March 21 - April 19
..>..>..> ..> The first sign of the zodiac is concerned with:
* self-assertion, initiation, new beginnings
* action, daring, challenge, adventure
* exploration, pioneering, discovering
* aggression, creativity, personal goals
* personal control of everything
* competition, winning, being first
* courage, honesty, nobility, openness
Elemental Quality
Aries is the cardinal fire sign of the zodiac. It can be likened to a fire which gives direction, such as in a rocket, a gun, or an engine. Superman and Superwoman, who can propel themselves in any direction, are good metaphors of Aries energy. Fire is a process that causes change and Aries uses energy to bring about changes. Being a cardinal sign, Aries is the most energetic of the fire signs and usually takes the initiative.

Spiritual Goal

To learn the meaning of selfless love.
The Aries Personality
These are the general personality traits found in people who are typical of Aries. An unhappy or frustrated Aries may display some of the not-so-attractive traits.

..>..>..> ..> Positive Negative
* Is a leader * Must be the boss
* Is energetic * Brashness
* Helps others to achieve their dreams * Blind to his or her effect on others
* Accepts challenges * Intolerance
* Believes the best of others * Jealousy
* Takes risks for others * Doesn't listen
* Defends the vulnerable * Selfishness
* An Aries life is an open book * Impulsiveness
* Will give life for the loved one * Poor judge of character
* Continues action even if others give up * Dislikes being told what to do
Secret Aries
Inside anyone who has strong Aries influences is a person who thinks that he or she is more interesting than others and better than those with whom they are in competition.

It is patently obvious to all that Aries is interested in winning, whoever or whatever the challenge.

A fight, a race, a bit of physical or verbal sparring, or an opportunity to do things in new ways are what keep the Aries' fires burning bright. Aries has to be number one in every respect. The secret fear of a typical Aries is that he or she won't be liked or valued, even though a winner. However, failure is never a problem because Aries doesn't know the word... every outcome is seen as a part of the winning process, which is why warnings of impending disasters are usually ignored.

Ruling Planet and Its Effect
Mars rules the zodiac sign of Aries, so anyone whose birthchart has a strong Aries influence will tend to look for challenges to overcome. In astrology, Mars is the planet of aggressive energy and creative action. Like Mars, Aries is the knight in shining armor, an inspiration to friends, and a conquering hero to the underdog.

Starting a new me.

I woke up today sick of my life. I am extremely fat, tired all the time, congested, my face is blotchy looking, I keep getting boils, my joints ache and just completely unattractive all the way around. I will be 40 four months from yesterday and I don't want to spend the next 40 years of my life like the first 40. I am going to start eating better, exercising more and enjoying life. Every single day I am going to do something that is good for me. I am tired of feeling ugly, unhappy and disgusting. I am going to post here every day so I will be holding myself accountable.
I am unhappy with my appearance, my family life, my housing situation and basically everything in my life. Its not going to change all by itself. I am going to have to work on fixing what I don't like.
