God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

A big deal only to me, and even that's a smaller deal than it used to be

I weighed in at 225 this morning. Still about 30 pounds more than I'd like, but much nicer than the 285 I was hauling around a year ago today. Yay, Weight Watchers!

Doctor finally gave me the green light to get rid of the excess baggage from when I was sick, and I'm taking full advantage!
