Whole lotta labia.
Um. OMG HI! I'm in Miami, gratuitously hogging one of the terminals in the Admiral's Club. I needed to catch up on mail and such and I figured I'd pop in and see how you lovely people are.

I miss home. I miss it already and the fact that I'll be home Friday night doesn't make it any easier.

Um.. some short boring and healthy: I went to the gym on both Saturday and Sunday mornings for an hour or so and then I had my class Sunday night. Class was delightful and I managed to completely piss off the little flat-bellied 20-year-old who just started the class by being able to do a vertical figure-8 with my hips. She just got all frustrated like "Why is the fat bitch able to do this and I'm not?" and I wanted to be all "Chill, Ms. Visible Abs, I've been at this for longer than you have.. it's ok that I can do this and you can't, I'm sure you'll get the belly-roll before I will and we'll all be even. Now go have a Dorito and shut the fuck up."

Of course I didn't say that. Not on the outside.

We did a brief bit of choreography that was fun and I managed to pick up after only one quick go-through. I think I've decided to do the recital.. we'l see.

Food was.. well .. terrible. But that's ok. I'm allowed sometimes.

Matt and I hung out all day Saturday. It was.. um.. different I'm so not used to him being home on Saturday and we even remarked on it. He said "This is weird.. I keep thinking I should be doing something." We ended up working on projects, going to the dump, cooking, and watching movies while curled up on the couch. Also, there was a bit of rumpy-pumpy.. but that's to be expected. We needed that time, we really did.

Sunday was cleaning and packing and laundry and class and then this morning I hit the ground running. I went to the gym and then ran a couple of errands and then caught the plane and ... well.. here I am in Miami.

I'll be in San Jose, Costa Rica for the rest of the week. We're still not sure how we'll get through Customs tonight, we're hoping it'll all work out but I'm prepared to spend the next two days wrestling it. Wish me luck.

The hotel has a pool and a gym so I'll be working out.. it's right near the artisan's market so I'll be shopping.. and I'm going with Ernesto so I'll certainly be eating. I'm going to make the most of this trip since it's my last with the company. I miss you guys.

Some sekrit messages:

Small Seeded Red Fruit: I read what you'd sent me. I went "guh!" about eighty bajillion times. I have answers to some of your questions. It will have to wait until I'm in CR though.

Caitlins who are Wilful: Now you have me craving crab dip. *le sigh*

Lauras who are Lala (but not Lorichka): I got your mail. No fretting, it would have been a bad week to start anyway. And I know you're not there next week. But the week after would be lovely. If you want we can do coffee or something first.

Lauras who are Fire-haired and Feisty: *love*

OMG OMG HI HI... ok.. I had answers to your questions.. but I left them upstairs. I suck. But there was one.. um.. oh, you asked if you should bother with something because you once had a reason for it but you're not sure anymore. To which my answer is... you won't know until it's written. Try writing it and if it's weak and wussy then it didn't need to happen.. but I think you might find hidden reserves of greatness. Give it a whirl.. send the old girl off in style.

I miss you.

If you see these hidden reserves of greatness of which you speak, send a sistah a map. I'm so ass-deep in this thing that I can't move anymore. Last night I stared at a blank piece of paper for 30 minutes and then went to bed.

I think I need vertical figure-8s to cheer me up.

wow. your ideas for rewards are soooo much better than mine.

My goal for new years is another 8.5lbs away, and I had planned when I make it to buy myself another charm for my keychain, like a little top hat or something. 'cause I like the shiny shiny things. And my next 10% should happen, barring plateaus and such, within a couple of weeks of New Years, so I need to commemorate that one too.

Maybe I should ponder other rewards, though. hmmmm.... yoga classes? switching from Curves to the Y? dunno.

I think you're probably beyond Curves by now.. give yourself a chance to really stretch and explore the whole working out thing. Can you get like.. a week trial at the Y to see if you like it?

Missing you already.

If shopping turns up anything good, get me one and I'll pay you back. I trust you more than anyone to know "good" in the Caitlin universe.

Tonight here is slow cooked lean pork braised with green chiles and tomatos and garlic and cumin. Lots of cumin. My house smells all yummy.

It's funny you said that, because one of the funniest parts of going to the Christmas party at Rebecca's (the living embodiment of my competitiveness) on Saturday night was that she has a huge wicker and straw chicken house in her bedroom. Apparently when she hit customs she told them it was "a really big basket."

Pork: spray the skillet, brown the pork. In the drippings, on medium low, cook onions and garlic about five minutes. Put the pork back in the pan, top with a can of chopped tomatos (I used the ones with chiles in them) and two cans of green chiles. Add a buttload of cumin and some oregano and some salt and pepper. Add a can of chicken broth, put the lid on, and either leave it on top of the stove for an hour or put it in the oven on 325 for two hours. Take the pork out, and add as much rice as you think you need to sop up the extra liquid. The end.

That's going to be my Indian name... "Having a Dorito, shutting the fuck up."

(omg I can't believe you remember the headset disaster)

The vertical figure 8 is really cool looking.. and it's called a maya.. remind me to show you sometime when we're sure no one else is looking.

Laura my love, the whole city is just lit up like crazy for Christmas.. it's so beautiful. I wish there were girlies here instead of Ernesto and Dave.. not that they aren't great.. but... meh. How are you, my precious? I miss you.
