Because of this decision, I am supervising cupcake making & eating none of them *___*
For all my disapproval with the book itself, I’m going on the attack phase of the Dukan Diet tomorrow.
I’m not going in expecting a miracle or really using the Diet to drop weight quickly. I need to get more than my average of 15g of protein a day, and I feel I can adapt the Dukan Diet to accomplish that. While I like to call myself an omnivore, I tend to stay firmly in the fat/carb side of things, and have to push myself to get above 15g of protein. But my body LOVES protein. When I have enough protein, not only do I feel better, but I tend to have loads more energy to tackle things. And since I’m pretty active in my life, that makes barely making it to 15g of protein even worse.
I’m going to mix my protein sources up— tofu, soy products, meat substitutes, lean poultry, ham, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, and yes, I’m finally going to give fish a fighting chance.
So if nothing else comes of the attack phase, at least the inability to eat anything at the mall for six days will curb that nasty lunch habit. :3
Ug, bad theater manners dude spent the entire movie eating food he brought into the theater (including cracking open a beer), then left his seat STREWN with garbage. Dude, if you aren’t going to support the theater staff’s paychecks with concessions, at least clean up your filth! No one wants to clean up your spilled yogurt and funky smelling beer!
The movie, thankfully, was brilliant! Will post a review on my feelings attack blog.
I’m the only person in the theater when a dude comes in and sits in front of me. I’m reading a book with headphones on, but the guy smacks his hand in the chair’s back, getting my attention. “So you like Hobbits?” He asks all swarmy like, pulling out a balognia sandwich. Because my headphones and book are clearly just a set up for conversation. “Nope.”
Dude stared at me, aghast at my lack of fucks to give.
Now he’s asking a trio of ladies if Tom Bombidil is showing up in this one.
Dude, sit down, no one is interested. Stop harshing my Hobbit squee!
Mom’s 60th birthday! May 19th marks her 30th year of MS, so this birthday is even more special. Go mom!
Southern Oregon trip, functioning as both a family visit & gathering research for a future writing project :3
Shipping my novel out into the wide world in March, an early 30th birthday present to myself :D
And yes, my 30th birthday in April, which I’ll potentially be celebrating in Maui with family if I can gather enough frequent flyer miles. Otherwise, fancy picnic at the San Jose Rose Garden (monocles and top hats!). Clearly I win either way ;)
Fanime in May, not sure if I’ll be attending. I will be visiting with friends in town for the convention regardless, since Fanime is practically in my backyard
Flying out in July for Readercon & Boston adventures with 2 of my best friends. Not surprisingly, March & July are my favorite two months for 2013 already :3
I’d love to sneak out to NYC in September to watch the Giants play a New York team near the end of the regular baseball season.
November marks my 12th Nanowrimo project (and hopefully 12th win :D)
And have you seen how many good movies & books are coming out in 2013?!
I love California mail-in ballots! I can vote in bed and not have to deal with lines (or machine-related stress!). I just have to wake up before work & go drop it off across the street at the polling place, piece of cake! :D
It did strike me again that while research on all the measures just cemented my earlier opinions, hell if I can figure out who to vote for city council or to the school board. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE REALLY. One personal essay is not going to give me enough information!
For the past few weeks, the only sleep I’ve managing have been four hour naps. After that, I’m wide awake— anxious, blurry eyed, & exhausted, yes, but completely incapable of returning to sleep. This odd sleeping cycle coincided with a nasty mental health week, a sense of frustrated hopelessness, and a profound lack of productivity.
Something clearly had to give, and as I stumbled home from work yesterday, it turned out to be me. The plan was to take a 2 hour nap before getting some work done, but the brain seized the opportunity & refused to let me wake up when the time came. I snoozed through my alarm, housemates banging on my door, and two phone calls.
I can’t say for certain if the 14 hours broke the sleeping cycle. But wow, isn’t it amazing what a good bout of sleep can do to restore your mental health? I feel like a normal person again, and all I did was sleep! <3.
All right, so, a few things:One, massive possibly trigger warning. Talking about violence, murder, possibly rape, and just general uncomfortable situations. If you want to watch a documentary about a certain subject and the documentary triggers you, please don’t hesitate to let me know, and I’ll try to find you a better one. Two, if what you’re looking for isn’t here or you have a request for a certain subject, let me know and I shall do my best to find them for you. :)
Fucking yes. This is awesome.
So many documentaries, so little time to watch them all *___*
