The calendar is closing in on me. December already! Where did the year go? And why in the last year have I lost just about everything I own except some weight?

I seem to be able to lose everything except this padding.
As an added reminder, even today’s spam e-mails were nearly all insulting in nature. One e-mailer invited me out on a date, if I could meet him in Sydney, Australia. The next suggested, with no subtlety whatsoever, that I start “loosing” weight — today! Do people who can’t even spell correctly expect me to cough up money for their charlatan plans? Besides, my weight already is “loose!
