Too much healthy stuff has taken its toll on me. For the past few days I’ve been craving junk food. Pastries, cheese, sweet stuff, coffee. I had four peppermint patties, a brick of munster cheese, and this morning 2 danishes.

The only good moment was when I did my cardio party workout 2 nights ago. That felt REALLY REALLY exhilarating. I got through it -- 40 minutes nonstop -- without huffing and gasping like a fish out of water so at least I’m getting better. But that does nothing for my junk food cravings.

I weigh myself less often now, because apparently my body likes living in the same 4-lb range. Plateau. Ugh.

maybe when i hit 800 i can go ahead and get married
or maybe when i hit 800 i can postpone marraige until i hit 825 :P


in other news, the reunion was pretty good. besides the fact that the sheer thought of 10 years made me do a lot of internal reflection, the event itself was fine. there were a lot of people that i recognized but couldnt place their names even though we'd spent a decent amount of time hanging out together school. of my core group of friends, only a handful showed up. natasha was a noshow, so was kandou although he never said he was coming. nordia and arlene are missing in action. yamala was there -- yay! and so were sean, scott, wendy, robert, ethere were, of course, the pretentious people who came ready to brag. one guy showed up in his work uniform. a pair of tacky too-tight khaki pants and a polo shirt with his company name stitched onto it. he claims he had to fly down to nyc right from a career fair in albany. whatever. he's the classic short man with a napolean complex --- he needed to chat himself up. dude. it's a reunion. there's have more than enough opportunities to tell people you're an engineer without having the come in costume.

as for me, i told people some people i'm a bookeller, told others i'm in retail, and saved the in-depth explaination for people who care. everyone seemed to be doing well for themselves but then again the people who would probably come to these things are unlikely to be losers.

this day sucks

this morning i circled for 1/2 an hour looking for a parking spot. i ended up getting to work almost an hour late.

yesterday i almost lost a finger through my own stupidity. it turns my stomach just to think about it.

10 year high school reunion in 5 days. what the hell have i done in the last 10 years? nothing! it's depressing.

i think i'm pms-ing, too. horrible.

my house is in shambles and i wont get my pocket door. *snarl* now i hate the floor tiles i chose. they're too dark. and i hate the cabinets, too.

people at work are making me want to throw something, as ususal.

some woman killed this other woman for her fetus, then killed the other woman's other 3 kids and stuffed them in the washer & dyer. if there is a god, why did he or she bother to make humans? we're obviously not good for the planet or even each other.

i think i will go windowshop, see if it'll make me feel better.

also, why does victoria's secret bother to sell clothes if they dont have real stores where you can try them on before you buy? i dont think i can get into the catalog/mail order thing.

i'm not sure why but i seem to have lost my taste for salad dressing. or, at least, i don't miss not having it on my food.

i have NOT lost my taste for munster cheese. i could and would live off the stuff if i even got a hint that such a lifestyle would be healthy

there's a BABY living in my house now. she belongs to the tenants, not to me. she has an incredible shock of hair and perfect fingernails. we all gathered around to admire her & she slept right through it. also, her parents emailed *51* pictures of her. FIFTY-ONE!!

my cabinets should be delivered next week. i'm second-guessing my choice of color/wood and tile color but it's too late to change now. well i *could* return the tile but i dont feel like loading them into the car and lugging them back to jersey. those things were heavy.

Subject:nj is good for 2 things after all
Time:02:54 pm
i got my kitchen tile from a spot in new jersey yesterday. 1/2 the price home depot would have cost. so i have to grudginly admit that nj is good for something else after all. usually i avoid the place altogether unless i'm going to visit jason (especially now that i've discovered the ikea in hew haven!)

i'm tired of calling up so-called businesses from the white pages only to find out their operation is wack.

you shouldnt be in business selling floor tile (or much of anything else really but i'm shopping for tile right now and this is all about ME) ... but anyway, you shouldnt be in business if you don't accept phone calls from unidentified numbers. clearly you are putting your poor phone through an identity crisis. it is you personal cell phone? is it your house phone? is it a business phone? or is schizophrenically trying to be all four? do you really think i'm going to record my name so you can decide whether you're going to take the call?? 1) you dont know me so my name is meaningless and 2) this is supposed to be a business line

ALSO, you shouldnt be in business if your operation is tacky. this is a flame on those businesses whose voicemail sounds like they're in a dorm and someone down the hall is blasting music. or worse, like theyre on a cell phone with bad reception. and wHY dont they leave business hours and/or address on the recording?? wouldnt that MAKE SENSE? or are you in the business of annoying potential customers -- is that is??

i can see muscle outlines on my stomach and on my quadriceps. they're BARELY there, but still, they're there.

the problem with losing weight is that the clothes you like dont shrink with you. that's not making me too happy b/c there are couple of really nice slacks i'd like to keep. i wonder if they'll still fit right if i get them altered?

i went on a picture-taking frenzy and added a few more to my myspace page.

speaking of myspace i found GAIL!! one of the three lost sistren from high school. for once, myspace has functioned in some meaningful way. now all i need to do is find Arlene and Nordia. and, from elementarty school, my old friend Ebieten. and from junior high school, Danielle, Sharon, Anika, Doris, Ismael, and maybe even Tinita.

also, i caught a cold. yes, THIS EARLY in the season!! it sucks.

and i went to look at floor tile. travertine is rather expensive :(

okay, i'm going to get lunch and orange juice.

two days in a row my scale has given me the same morning & evening number sooooo i'm going to go with it. i've officially sloughed off 34.5 #s. which means (drumroll please!!!!) i've crossed the halfway mark to my goal. also, people are telling me i look slimmer. hey, i'm not complaining.


also, i'm going to sort of be an aunt!!!!

also, my sister is moving in with us tomorrow. i'm supposed to do the actual transporting of her stuff (mostly clothes). she hasnt owned up to it but judging by the fact that shes asked us to come get her at odd hours when the mother is either at church or asleep, i'm getting the impression she hasnt told her mother that she *is* moving out and when and that shes expecting the woman to cause a scene. i'll be sure to not wear anything nice in case there is an (ahem) altercation.

on another note, this is a sign that i need my own place. well, my own place that i would then move into. perhaps i can warm up to the idea of a condo or even a (ick) co-op just for the sake of my budget.

Subject:woot is a hoot
Time:12:34 pm
in instances of boredom, check out woot.com. it's this site that sells one item a day -- usually surplus electronics. would-be wooters stalk the site at midnight central time to see what the new woot is and possibly grab one before it sells out. they have a woot-off every once in a while -- everyone looks forward to it. they sometimes sell a "big bag of crap" that could be full of goodies or full of, you guessed it, crap. there's also a streaming wootcast full of wry weird humor for your listening pleasure. and do be sure to read the discussion board for any given product. it tickles me every time, especially if the product is a really bad deal. :P hilarious!!

i hung out with one of my old friends from high school yesterday. i'm not sure if it counts as a date. *ponder* probably not a date. no, definately NOT a date. it would be strange to date him. i thought we were going out to dinner, but then he picked me up and took me back to his place and cooked dinner for me. (who does that??) then we played Uno for a couple of hours. :P hilarious!!
