In no particular order except the order in which things actually occurred:
- Bossy changed her blog’s tag line to Setting a new world standard, and when Bossy says she changed her blog’s tag line, she means beautiful her and beautiful her, otherwise known as Bossy’s talented design team, did it.
Bossy changed her blog’s tag line because: some of you may remember this post from last fall about Bossy’s friend Andy, and how he told Bossy she needed a tag line that would create total synergy between her blog’s name and the blog’s content:
- Bossy threw a big party on Saturday night.
- The party turned into a jam session around a bonfire in Bossy’s backyard.
- Bossy woke up on Sunday at 5:30 a.m. Oh wait, that wasn’t waking up, that was going to bed.
- In order to push a reset button on her bad habits, Bossy is once again taking the next five days to eliminate all sugar and alcohol and salt and dairy and white flour and caffeine and laughter and fun and sanity. Unlike last time when Bossy’s mom moved in with Bossy so they could
encourage each otherprop each other up, this time Bossy’s friend Martha is joining Bossy, although Martha isn’t moving in, but instead will be spending large chunks of every day with Bossy watching distracting DVDs featuring chocolate and boozeRicky Gervais, and can you tell Bossy’s tanking blood sugar is commensurate with each comma?
Should be an interesting week. Don’t miss!

I’m doing the sugar no white flour for the next week too–alone–but not, because I will be following bossy!! No motivation, and hoping bossy will quit in the next hour so I can too!!
MariaV saysJune 8, 2009 at 9:51 am
I would like to eliminate, but I’m not sure that I would survive it. Good luck, Bossy!
dexter saysJune 8, 2009 at 9:53 am
Thats the first time in years that the sunday paper was on the doorstep before I got home!! That =’s fun!!!!!!
Dara saysJune 8, 2009 at 9:56 am
I love Ricky Gervais and sugar!
Amber Star saysJune 8, 2009 at 10:40 am
This should be interesting….and I think Ricky Gervais is funny, too.
Lee saysJune 8, 2009 at 10:42 am
Are you doing this for health reasons or for punishment for having fun? Either way, good luck!
Domesic Goddess (in training) saysJune 8, 2009 at 10:43 am
If I eliminated those things, I would have nothing left to live for. Cheers for having a way better life than I do!!!
Dee saysJune 8, 2009 at 11:43 am
Do you read Dr Oz ? He says food cleanses are all in your “head” that they don’t really have any biological benefits. May want to spare yourself the misery…
amy saysJune 8, 2009 at 12:06 pm
would have loved to have been there- xo can’t wait to see you soon my pretty! xoxox
joeinvegas saysJune 8, 2009 at 12:13 pm
Hmmm, periodic detox reset. Wow, you must really have been, um, tired, Sunday morning to come up with that.
vuboq saysJune 8, 2009 at 12:22 pm
In order to support your detox efforts, I will drink enough booze and eat enough chocolate for the both of us! You’re welcome.
zelzee saysJune 8, 2009 at 1:04 pm
I can’t live up to your standards…….
Boozing and eating unhealthy foods until 5:30 in the morning.
Oh wait……those are my standards………..
Well Read Hostess saysJune 8, 2009 at 1:06 pm
sign me up…right after I finish this chocolate bar.
Michele P saysJune 8, 2009 at 1:57 pm
It may be cleanse time for me and hubby too. We have to do them together because neither of us is strong enough to do it alone! Good luck!
Donna saysJune 8, 2009 at 3:06 pm
Does Bossy play an instrument herself? I am the mother of a musically-talented brood but sadly have no talent myself. Your party sounds like so much fun, and it was a lovely evening!
Avitable saysJune 8, 2009 at 4:22 pm
I like the new tagline!
Baby Favorite saysJune 8, 2009 at 4:40 pm
Baby Favorite wants to join Bossy for her detox.
Also? Baby Favorite wants to start talking in the 3rd person.
Wait, she already is!
Reeb saysJune 8, 2009 at 4:42 pm
Pouting cause “silly” is no longer in the tagline. I LOVE silly.
Did you keep the neighbors up til 5:30 a.m. too?
MidLifeMama saysJune 8, 2009 at 4:43 pm
The only time I did this was when I was pregnant. And then it was only for the sake of my developing fetus. Since THAT isn’t happening again, I see no need to torture myself that way again. But good luck to you.
the cheap chick saysJune 8, 2009 at 6:36 pm
Think of the money you’ll save! Think of how good you’ll feel! Think of how much it will totally suck…
We’re pulling for you, Bossy! You can do it!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJune 8, 2009 at 6:43 pm
Bossy has a reset button? All my bad habits are on preset.
(…where bad habits equals wine and chocolate, and where wine and chocolate equals life force.)
wendy saysJune 8, 2009 at 9:21 pm
that looks like sooooo much fun, I wish I could have been there too. My family and I did the same thing sat. evening, we roasted marshmallows and listened to the pens get there butts kicked by the redwings. But we didn’t have the nice music you had, wish we would have after that nasty hockey game.
Manic Mommy saysJune 8, 2009 at 9:39 pm
You call them toxins. I call them the building blocks of life.
Know it All saysJune 8, 2009 at 10:24 pm
Have to say it…I like the OLD tag line…sorry Bossy…I can live with the new one, though.
jen saysJune 9, 2009 at 1:06 pm
question: Are you ridding yourself of wine for ever? For ever EVER ever?? If you are…well, that’s just triflin’ saaaaad.
foolery saysJune 9, 2009 at 7:05 pm
Good luck, Miss Bossy. I gave up corn products for eight — no, NINE hours in January. It was totally worth it.
Auds at Barking Mad saysJune 9, 2009 at 11:58 pm
Good Luck Bossy m’dear. You are going where some have gone before….and stayed sane. Except for me. Because I’m a wimp like that. I mean about the “going there” part…because if I did, “go there” that would mean breaking up with white bread and I can’t do that to my soft squishy lover. I don’t think he’d ever recover. And there is NOTHING sadder than depressed white bread. The tears make it go all soggy. ‘Tis a real shame!
