Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |okayokay]

I'm feeling... better. Much. Still exhausted, but better. Thanks for all the good thoughts and love you all sent my way.

Best possible words to hear: "I'm so sorry about last night, I over-reacted and I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you feel bad, I just got frustrated and handled it wrong."

Yes. Yes you did. Now hug me and let's have dinner, jackass.


Dinner was mussels with pasta and fresh bread. Fast becoming my favorite meal, and Matt's fine with it too so we're doing well. The only problem was finding out that I'd bought an entire bag of bad mussels. They were about 80% dead and stank to high heaven. We ended up taking them back and getting more from somewhere else.

I made Matt watch Empire Records with me but he laughed and I got out of my system the urge to mutter "You're a superb manager, Joe." So we were all winners.

After dinner there was a wee bit of sewing. I got the red pants made, they just need elastic, and Kelley's poofy shirt made, it just needs the cuffs finished and some eyelets. I'll get more done tonight.

This morning at the gym was the usual bits of cardio and weights, I did my lovely hack squats as well as a righteous set of calf raises (95lbs! I scare the men! I love my calves.) and some hamstring curls. I did a set of seated rows for my back and then hightailed it out of there. The scale shows me up half a pound from yesterday but frankly with how much my fingers are swollen and how little water I drank yesterday, I'm not really surprised. I've been eating fine and exercising well and I know it's not actual weight coming back on. Possibly it's all the snot. Snot weighs a lot. What?

Tonight is a bit of a splurge, I can't afford the concert I was supposed to go to tonight (snafu in the reimbursement of my expense report) so Matt and I are meeting at the local microbrewery and he's going to buy me a beer. I'll save my points for that and maybe a nice dinner salad and then it's back home to keep sewing.

Tomorrow I need to be in control for lunch and breakfast because dinner is going to be INSANE. It's a crab feast. I'll get a trip to the gym in too, maybe I'll take Matt. Sunday is lunch with my mom but it'll probably be seafood from up the road and that's always good. Also, I'll get a gym trip in if I can. If not, it's a day off, and that's good. Possibly yoga at home.


Matt got started with his own packing last night so we're both making good progress. I'm still planning on getting my hair cut and I've got some random running around to do yet but it'll all turn out alright. My futon shoudl arrive today, it left Harrisburg at midnight, and I've got to spend some time this morning getting my to-do lists straight or I'm going to forget something big, I just know it.

I wish I were clever today, I'm sorry. Perhaps I'll be clever later. You guys would be ok with later, right?

Re: NO!

Y'know, just for that, no clever for you. Ever. That's right, you heard me. Now go tame that grass, hussy.

You are so properly pumped up. I am a pathetic girly-woman next to your muscular and shapely calves.

(Melleh. I woke up this morning with Scene 32 fully formed in my head. Billy has been whispering in my ear all morning. Eeee! *scribbles*)

The only part of my body that I have ever been consistently and unconditionally in love with is my calves. My first boyfriend once said "I love your legs, they have that great leg shape." Plus, watching some guy's eyes as I DON'T move the pin after he's done.. that's fun. ;)

(omg you must write NOW NOW NOW.. and then send it to me for wank beta.)

Clever now! Now now!

I got nothing done last night. K and I did math until she went to bed (a tradeoff for the fact that we don't have to think about it again until September) and then I took my book and was very, very quiet.

No! No clever for you! :D

Every year a quiet day does us good. Every year. And it makes us ready to hit the ground running. I know I could have gotten more done last night but I was making stupid mistakes and I wanted to be in bed cuddling, so I did it.

I'm fine-tuning my to-do list.. and I found last year's packing list, that helps. I think I may actually get all the critical things done, but I realized last night that I have to remake both my gauze pirate shirt AND my soft cotton poofy shirt because they're covered in big mildew splotches. *weep*

THANK YOU FOR MY BOX OF STUFF.

The videos look... intimidating. *laughs* I'll save them up for when I don't have quite so much extra belly. I couldn't do a crunch now if I tried.

BUT! I was goofing around in the mirror yesterday after swimming, and I did the manly "arm flex" pose (you know what I mean, both arms up, elbows bent and hands in fists) and my biceps went 'pop'. I was like "holy shit, definition.' Eeei.

YAY YOU GOT YOUR BOX! The videos aren't really intimidating, at least not the Gilad ones. He's pretty low key and it's worth a try, I did them pretty early on in the process so you might be surprised. And don't do the crunches if you don't want to. I can't vouch for the Tammilee one, I was talking to a friend about you and she sent that thinking it might work for you.

OMG DEFINITION! GO YOU! Whee! *twirls you* I'm jealous, I don't have any kind of definition in my arms and I want it so. :)
