Seriously, is it possible to have Seasonal Affective Disorder after the season is over?  IT'S SNOWING IN APRIL.  Gnar.

I am considering Twitter after a convo with a friend I ran into at the library today.  Usually I'm so up on new technology, but even I don't have time to update every GOSHDARN second of my boring life.  Does Shaq do anything else?

Still in the dark about my in-laws' vow renewal thingy (did I mention that?) as to times and expectations.  Will probably end up looking like an idiot in some way due to Mr K not obtaining details.

Eating clean is going well, other than needing to learn how to read a scale.  On the upside, I lost like 10 pounds in 3 days!  :-D

All of my photos, icons, and picspam were lost in one of those crazy PC crashes that happen when your husband downloads pr0n.  But my 18000+ music files were recovered (and imminent homicide averted). \o/

I don't know if I want to see a Rupert Grint sex scene.  Just sayin'.  I think Equus scarred me for life when it comes to kid actors' bits.  D:

Did some Spring cleaning of the ole journal, updated icons.  Might redo some headers with lyrics/titles from Years of Refusal.  Hm.

How are you all doin'??

Ugh.  Am sick.  *snorfle*  I hate being sick.  Especially when it's nice out.  Blergh.

Happenings:

1.  Lived out of my gym bag and at the YMCA for most of the week, between social things and other things and just plain not-having-time between things things.  I'm glad the Y is nearby, nice, clean and cheap.

2.  I saw Morrissey in concert on Wednesday night!  <3 that man.  Had I been up front, I totally would have been one of those crazy people who jump up on stage and try to hug him, only to be tackled by security and thrown back into the crowd.

3.  One of my pals is moving to Cali at the end of June, and I'm going to miss her like crazycakes.  We've both been seriously stressed out over other people's life catastrophies (we didn't realize that we both knew Eric, the man who killed himself last week), the uncertain future, et cetera.  The two of us are not much for superficial emotion, so we spent some time just venting and not having emotional discussions, but talking about not having emotional discussions...it's hard to explain, but we both felt better by the end of the night (the Killian's and Jim & Coke probably helped, too).

4.  Had dinner at Ha Long Bay on Friday night with friends - Columbus peeps, hit this place up if you like fresh Asian food.  The pictures are up on my FB account.

5.  Did breakfast with my dad, his wife, my sister, BiL, BiL's mom, and niece on Saturday, then went to the ultrasound place to check on the Blob.  Dude, that 4D imaging stuff is horrific - seriously, I nearly puked on Natalie about halfway through.  Or maybe it was the onset of this 'flu.  Dancing fetal skeletons are still the stuff of nightmares.  D:  Oh, she's having a boy - we saw the hot dog rather than the bun.

6.  My current Rainbow Assembly had its Reunion on Saturday, which was much more sparsely attended than we had planned for based on the number of folks who RSVP'd, but it was a nice turnout.

7.  Went to dinner (OMG I NEED TO EAT MEALS AT HOME ONCE IN A WHILE!) at Shi Chi Steakhouse with my college roommate and her hubby, then to the new "dueling piano" bar in the Arena District.  Lame, lame, lame.  We stood outside for half an hour to enter a half-full bar, the singing was first episode American Idol bad.  So, we did what we do almost every year (this is Shannon's birthday time) - abandon our grand plans and hit our favorite dive bar for karaoke.  Which I totally BLEW at, considering I've not sung even in the car for a good month, didn't warm up, etc.  She was a voice major, completely dropped off her butt drunk, and got up and sang some country song cold but with perfect pitch and timing.  *jeliz*

8.  This morning I cooked my meals for the week (down already to 172), went for a run, and threw up.  Yay.  Mr. K. is in the doghouse again, but is rallying a little by cleaning at the Lodge this afternoon so I don't have to go over and clean toilets while yakking up my own guts.

9.  They're calling for snow at the beginning of the week.  :-(

10.  OH - watched part of the pilot for First Blood last night - I liked it!  Vampires?  Southern settings?  Crazy hillbillies?  Psychic waitresses?  OMG WUT.  So, how does one go about getting the other episodes before it comes out on DVD?  *eyebrows*

11.  There is no 11.

Something more like an actual update:

1. I've shrunk an entire INCH! Am now 5 feet, 8.5 inches, due to skeletal "readjustment" after weight loss. Quite surprising, since it never crossed my mind that this would/could/does happen, but it makes sense - less to cart around, less bone needed for supporting structure. My doctor is not concerned with bone loss, because I get plenty of calcium, high-intensity exercise, and am in generally good health.

I started intensive Vitamin D therapy (uh, intensive for me in that I'm taking supplements for it) and have added Omega-3 supplements to my regimen over the past 6 months. My serum vitamin D was low with my last CBC, even with the extra, which the doctor is concerned about, but kind of makes sense given the whole "readjustment" scenario.

This must be why people who've lost a lot of weight and kept it off sometimes look completely different. My college roommate and I were looking at pictures - one of us when we lived together (at 225 and 275 lbs respectively), one of us in 2006 (at 190 and 220), and looking at ourselves now (170 and 200) - and it is insane the difference even between 2006 and 2009 in what we look like.

2. Now that my BMI, RMR, and BMR has been adjusted, I really need to jumpstart losing those last 20 pounds! Read more... )

3.  This weekend is the weekend of eating but mainly regurging whatever I want!  So far, I've had:  McDonald's ice cream (it's non-dairy!), pizza, Raising Cane's chicken fingers, and a donut.  Tomorrow, pad thai and Jeni's.  Then, on the wagon (if I can get up on the damn thing).

4.  Listening to Ministry and Erasure just makes me happy.  <3

5.  I love crossword puzzles and Augusten Burroughs.  The end.  :-)
