Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

All Kinds of Random

One of my co-workers called me a "sophisticated broad" today. I was touched. I'm wearing my pearls. Boys like the pearls.

I don't own a belt. And I could really use one today. My Target slacks are literally falling off of me. The scale says I am now 10 lbs lighter than I was on June 9th. I can't really tell, but apparently my pants can. I'm actually feeling much better, I just can't eat much at all. If I do, I get that lump in my throat and I regret even eating at all. So lunch today is one piece of pizza and a quarter of a Pagliacci salad. I haven't had any chocolate from the work candy dish, or even a donut, even though they're appearing in our kitchen almost daily this week. There were smores at the solstice party and I passed on those. SMORES! Crap.

The bbq Monday night was nice. Just sitting around, eating (very little) and chatting with friends. Home by 10:30 and in bed early. Good stuff.

Tuesday I went for a walk, finally. It was just a beautiful day. I stood at Sunset Park and looked out at the Olympic Mountains and the water. Everyone's roses are blooming so of course I had to stop and smell them all. It's much like the used cd bin at Sonic Boom. I can't just glance at one or two to see what they have. Once I look at a few, I'm sucked in and have to look at every single one. A small part of my neurosis.

Yesterday, I came in early and left early so I could meet up with Daniela and Jonah. He's getting so big! They're coming over tonight for dinner, along with Kim-n-Tim, so I'll get pictures for you. We hung out at Discovery Park for a bit, then grabbed some food and took it back to the house. Where Steve was cleaning for me :-) I'll leave work early today and go by the grocery store, then make veggie enchiladas for dinner, which I'm sure I won't eat very much of. Dammit.

And I'm moving into my new office tomorrow. I won't have to share with anyone and I'll be right across the hall from my boss, instead of across the entire floor. I was stressing because the room I'm moving into still hasn't been patched or painted, but I just got word that's happening tonight. So I should be good and stoned come tomorrow afternoon.

We have a busy weekend lined up:
Friday is Cyn's housewarming party, then the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Musical at midnight at a theater. It's my equivalent of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I think. I've never seen that. But I hear I should.

And then Saturday. For Steve's birthday, I bought us tickets to a local radio stations :20 Festival (they play a comedy routine at 7:20am and 5:20pm each day). The Flight of the Conchords are headlining and they're freakin' hysterical. I turned Steve onto them. I can't wait.

Then we have next week, which is a short week with a holiday right smack dab in the middle. I hate that. But I guess I shouldn't complain. A no work day is still a no work day, right?

They are hilarious! Thanks for the link. Now I gotta stop listening to their routines.
Glad you got over your bug.

Seriously, now that you say something about the lump in your throat when you eat - you sound just like Kristin. Everytime she ate she got this lump in her throat and felt like she was going to puke. She was diagnosed with gastritis, which highly annoyed her. "I'm 25 years old and have gastritis!" ;>) Anyway alcohol, stress, ibuprofen - all can be causes. It was a time in her life when she got to see how stupid we all act when we drink - b/c she didn't drink for a period of time to let her gastritis get better. And it is better for now. You should talk to her about it.
