Ice machines and foam noodles

I went out to Albertson's and Wal-mart and K-mart and Broulims this weekend. It was fabulous. I only bought those tasty little wafer cookies and some sushi. And rented some movies too. But at Albertson's they have an ice machine that prepares and bags it right there! And the helpful Albertson's lady even let us look inside the machine. So here's us being foolish with the ice machine. Sorry for the sad quality of camera phones, feel free to stop it whenever.

Then we went to K-mart and I forgot to take pictures there, but it was Kyle and Melissa against me in a vicious game of Hide and Seek/Marco Polo. And when they finally did find me, Kyle beat me with a pool noodle. Right in front of the pharmacy. And they didn't even care. Heartless folk. 

At Broulim's I saw the TA for my English class that I dropped and we chatted for a little bit, and that was all good. I'm sad I'm going to have to re-do my papers, but maybe we can work out a deal or something. Like, I grade for him and start where I left off. Yeah, that'd be nice. But I doubt it. But here's to hoping. 

Wednesday I get my camera test. I'm pretty scared to tell the truth. But hopefully they'll have some answers in a week. Otherwise I'll be getting quite sick of sushi, the only thing I've found that doesn't hurt me lots. Mmmm, I love it so much. I feel like a traitor to spaghetti. And those little caviars. I love those. Like I love capers. Which I haven't had since the last time I went to Johnny Carino's (hint hint to anyone that would like to take me).

I've got to stop making every post about food. It's damaging to me I think.

And Rachel: I'm still working on your surprise. I promise to have it by Tuesday. I think. Take my promise on the condition of feeling well. But I'm trying haha!

Late birthday wishes :)

Okay, so my birthday was Saturday and it was wonderful! I bought myself a HOT new outfit partially because I am losing weight and my clothes don't fit and partially because it's my birthday and I deserve it. Hahaha!

After shopping I went to a classic car show and saw like 4 of my dream cars...a '57 Chevy Bel-Air. None in my color, baby blue and white, but that's okay. 

Then I ate a hot dog and it was delicious, and I went 4 wheeling and it was scary and fun all at the same time. And then I went shopping with Susan and we looked for stuff, but shopping in town sucks and we didn't have time to go to the "big city."

Then I had a surprise party! Yay!! And we went out for sushi and, mmmm, you can't even imagine how delicious it was. Then they gave me mango guava ice cream that was delightful as well. Before sushi we went and fed ducks. They're so cute. 

Yeah, so that was my birthday. It was fun and wonderful and I'm so glad I didn't cancel it like I wanted to earlier in the week. Yup, that's all :)

I'm at 140 now....5 pounds til the goal weight is reached. Ten for the gold. I get tested tomorrow at 730 in the freaking morning. But I'm getting sedated, yay!, but hopefully I don't say anything while I'm under that I don't want to say haha.

And then on Friday I should be back to work and hopefully they'll have results for me soon. They said a follow-up on the 19th, but that's still two weeks away and I'm going to need some food before then, or I'll easily have hit gold. 

Then it'll be my BIRTHDAY! And the doc said she'll dope me up so I can have my cake on my birthday--maybe I won't remember it, but I'll sure be able to have it. She's so nice :)

I left the house!

So I went to the 1964 concert last night. I made it a whopping half hour into it, yay me! I got really dizzy walking over there--partially, I'm sure, because I haven't done much in the way of physical exertion for a while--but Camille said that I got really pale looking too. Dang it. I'm already pale! 


The concert was good. Derek showed up, and even though he didn't have a reserved seat, sat with us anyway. But the staff never made him move, so it's all good. Sitting up for me is really hard--hence the lack of school this past week--so after a while I just needed to go back home. 

But something fun and not illness related:

I submitted a poem to a literary journal in North Carolina. I should know in like 3-6 weeks. My teacher says it's tough to get accepted on your first one, but I don't care--tough does not mean impossible! And I've finally got something out there! I'm really excited and I hope that they at least give me the benefit of a handwritten note. The guy on the phone seemed very nice when I called them, so hopefully he'll be the one to read it too. 3 weeks....that's right around my birthday, how cool would that be?!

And I need birthday ideas. I want to have a shin-dig of a party. I need to figure out where--I don't know if my house is gonna work, but it might--it is quite a bit larger than where I used to live. I want to send out invitations, but I need a theme first. I just might get really crafty on this one--gasp! I think I want a tiki party, but I want a pinata too. Can you have a pinata at a tiki party? Chocolate cake isn't exactly tiki either, but I'm having that so maybe it doesn't matter. And maybe we'll all go to the Splash park afterward--since it's free--and that'd be fun! Yay for living close!

Okay, it's party research time :)
