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

Two things about being sick yesterday:

1) My boss says I should just take the month of December off because this is the same thing I got last year right around this time. That would be a fine and funny suggestion. It would be. If he and his buddies hadn't given me January off already. As well as all the months following. Asshat.

2) Ella Enchanted is possibly the best "melly's sick day" movie ever. Ever. I mean.. c'mon. Anne's hair and WhatsHisName in pleather pants. It gets no better, people.

My new sewing machine came. It's broken. *sigh*


I did exemplarily well on food on Wednesday.. mostly because by the time dinner rolled around I was so completely nauseated that I didn't want to think about the concept of butter for my crab legs (OMG! Caitlin got crab legs for dinner!! She loves me so much.) and didn't munch on the way home.

I blew it by being wildly indulgent in my sickitude by eating an entire bag of those candy orange slices and half a box of 'Nilla Wafers between 9:30 Wednesday night at 7pm yesterday. *sigh* Oh well. That's like.. um... 50pts.. possibly much much more. And a bowl of pasta. It wasn't a good food day and I didn't exercise at all. I wish I could feel bad about it, but mostly I was busy laying on my couch and feeling like leukwarm ass. So, feeling bad about it is right out.

I also didn't hit the gym this morning. I just didn't. I'll hit it either at lunch or on the way home.

I'm not doing stellar on food so far, I had a bagel with bacon and egg and cheese from the Wawa but I think with a big salad and a 2pt lunch I can recover. I had talked to Matt about the possibility of pizza for our date night tonight.. but I think he'd be just as fine with steak and I could do fish or something. We'll figure it out.

I'll be packing and cooking and taking it easy for the weekend since I'm not yet 100% but I anticipate at least one gym trip and there's the dance class Sunday night.



A brief word about the shookedness of my moneymaker: Caitlin, I got word from the tribal troupe that we saw perform at the show in Baltimore.. the group of four? The ones who smiled? They're starting a new round of classes on the 24th of January. Monday nights in Columbia from 7 to 8. I think it's like $60 or $70 so if I don't have a job it's going to be a moot point but would you be interested?

Also.. my Sunday night instructors are putting together their big student recital. It's due to be the 8th of April. I'm not sure if I'm interested. I didn't get into this to perform on stage in sequins. I'll think about it.

Re: AH HA

Ah yes.. the world waits with bated breath for my daily dose of Boring and Healthy. *snort*

I have to think my boss didn't mean it that way.. I mean he's been an absolute prince for this whole thing.. he's the reason I'm still here instead of having been laid off right away with the rest of the folks who got axed. Still. Jackass.

I'm reserving judgement about the recital thing.. the problem is that while I think it would be good for me to do some choreography, get a sense of music, and work in front of people... I don't know if I want to spend the money on the costume, fret about looking stupid under stage lighting, or wear sequins on my tits. But we'll see.

If he is willing to give you a month of sick leave leading up to your leaving for good, you should totally take it. Otherwise, he is not funny.

I think you would look stunning on stage, and I'll even help you sew your sequins. Even if you do eat those candy orange slices that come out of a vat and never, ever even saw a real orange.

As for January, definitely maybe. The time is late enough it might even work, and class could be fun. J has already told me he doesn't think Monday works well for silversmithing, so he'd probably be willing to trade for another night. Let's talk closer to the date.

Survey says? He's just not funny. Although he's going to be gone the entire week after I get back.. and most of the week after that. Anyone who thinks I'm not coming in at 11 and leaving at 3 had better take a closer look at my Dreaded Amotivational Syndrome.

I need to think some more about the recital.. they'll want us to buy costumes so we'll all vaguely match. And there will be choreography.. I'm just not sure. I'll think about it. Meh.

And let's keep the January thing in mind.. because I like doing classes and such with you..

*smacks your boss on your behalf*

And exercise. Even if it's just a walk at lunch, or some yoga. Don't push if you're sick, but do something, all right? I'm keeping my eye on you. And besides, if I have to exercise today, then you do too.

This isn't 'sick' like 'has a cold or even ebola' this is 'sick' like 'so dizzy that if you move her head she threatens to puke in your lap.'

Besides, she's got the exercise jones. If she's able to do it, she does it.

I never threatened to puke in your lap. I threatened to puke in your *husband's* lap. :) I would never puke in your lap.. I love you.. for you I'd make it as far as I could in the direction of where your slaves bathe. :D

Re: Oh Geez

It certainly felt like that again.. I took it easy for a day and I'm about at 98% again so.. taking it easy tonight and tomorrow should kick it firmly in the ass.

Re: Oh Geez

Hi sweetie!

No, I don't get to look after her -- Matt gets to do it. I got to see her Wednesday night and she was all spinny then.

Dude, usually my boss is all good and stuff.. but this time I was just like. "Hahaha. Not."

And the problem with exercising right now is that I'm not sure if this thing is going to come back the first time I get my heart rate up or get even mildly dehydrated or.. whatever. It's fundamentally an inner ear infection and that means it makes me dizzy and stupid and unable to drive or walk when it kicks in and I'd hate that at the gym. So you're right, it'll probably be yoga or a walk up and down the driveway or something moderate. On the other hand, I may baby it another day. I know where my limits are with a cold or strep or whatever but last year I tried to bully myself into getting better from this thing and I ended up on my back again. Blech.

Molly, does it make me a bad student if I don't want to be part of the student recital?

Eep. Sorry, I didn't realize it was that bad. Definitely take it easy, then, and stay away from the candied orange slices and nilla wafers... You know better, MellyMelly. *shakes a motherly finger at you* Eat good and take care of yourself.

No, I don't think so. You signed up for the class to learn, no necessarily perform. It could be fun - I enjoyed our recitals when I was taking classes, even for as dorky as they were - but not everyone enjoys getting on stage. You're paying to be there. If you don't want to perform, for whatever reason, then you don't have to.

I hereby hire you for the position of eliminating asshaberdashery from the planet.

Sorry. I saw an excuse to use that word and had to take it.

But that would be a great job, would it not? 'Excuse me, but asses are not meant to be used as heads. You will cease and desist because I will now slay you dead.'

I think... quite possibly.. that that's the best word I've ever seen. I'm in awe.

Of course, this is a huge job.. I will need assistance. *kidnaps you*

I stole the word from altoidsaddict. It is absolutely brilliant, is it not? It's just not MY brilliance. :)

I do not need to be kidnapped, as I will be going willingly. It helps that I want to move closer to you (because my dream school and job are in DC), which also happens to be the center of much asshaberdashery. :P
