Healthy Schmealthy

Yesterday’s surprise birthday party went off without a hitch! It was kind of awesome.

He was totally befuddled the entire time, and when we ended up back at his place for the birthday party, we all had tons of fun just hanging around and playing games and eating food. We had mondo amounts of food, met some new people, and got to know some old friends better. Kudos to my co-conspirators, really. They totally pulled this shit together. Also, must learn to moderate the amount of times I use the word “awesome.” Mayhaps, time to move onto some other lingo or catchphrase?  Please complete that following phrase: “That is ___________.”  Bananaramas? Yowzers? Oy gevalt? Assa(Korean style!)?

It’s too bad that one of my favorite words ever, “lackadaisical,” hasn’t got a more positive connotation or a broader scope of meaning.

I should just give up my conversational crutches altogether. I believe I’ll try the novel idea of actually thinking about what I’d like to say before I utter any words.

So I’ve been having an entirely gross week with snot and cold sores and stupid uterus monthly special and such. My entire body is just so out of wack that I feel like the only thing I can do is eat healthily and start exercising and become an actually well-rounded human being instead of just sitting in front of a computer all day.  Of course, that involves that pesky little step of actually getting up and moving my limbs around.

Y’know what? I’m gonna go check out my brother’s friend’s bike right now and see if I can’t fix it up to ride around. Today seems like a biking around kind of day.

Swapbot Big Fat Envelope #5 package arrived yesterday!!!! Magical green envelope full of lovely goodness in the most random sort of way. I am certianly quite ready for any Halloween butterfly-related emergencies that might be coming my way. What a delightfully odd dichotomy of items to send. Thanks to my swapbotter, RaineyDay!

Now, time to finish off my package and send it off. Also, Julie’s birthday care package. 😀

Dear uterus,

Fuck you.

No.

No.

FUCK YOU. 

Yeah, and that movement you’re making, like you’re trying to squeeze all my innards into yourself through osmosis? That’s just awesome fun. Keep it up.

And one day when I’ve got a baby in there, and I’ve got to go through all this except with more pain and more inconvenience NINE MONTHS IN A ROW, . . . y’know what? Fuck that, too.

Sincerely,

Your landlady 

Rain drops keep falling on my head . . .

but all it does is disguise my wibbly wobbly tears of girly ovarian emotion. I have got to stop watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I seriously cry every episode. It really doesn’t matter if the family is crying or not, I’ve got tracks down my cheeks and a sniffly nose. The Voisine family has got to be one of the best I’ve seen yet ’cause the community really did keep paying it forward. God, it’s better than Oprah.

Highlights of the past couple of weeks:

– In Baltimore the weekend of the 18th-21st, toured the Walters Art Museum while Sunyia worked in its labs

– Finally got some downtime with Zia and Vivian, even if it was at 5 in the morning, in the midst of several rousing games of Mafia and Axis & Allies. Also got to see a whole bunch of APO kids and visit Book Thing on Sunday, so fun times.

– Saw Julie! Only for about 20 minutes during a loud party but it’s always awesome when I get to see her and discuss free-range Cyrano. I just hope he grows up into a fastidious adult bunny who like to poop in one place.

-Went down to finally see Shane’s workplace and it was purdy. Really purdy with brick and glass in one of the coolest places in Baltimore. Then, Chris and Zia decided that a spaghetti dinner was necessary, so we went back and cooked a huge, awesome, delicious, commune style dinner which actually ended in some really disgusting online videos. But the less said about that portion of the evening, the better.

– Then I went back on Thursday the 24th for Shane’s birthday, mostly cuz I wanted to keep expanding his comic book horizons, and dude, why do I keep finding the cutest guys in comic book stores? Gorgeous geeks w/geek creds and convo. Fun times! Met up with Julie again, in B&N, keeping Shane occipied while Sunyia made a lavish, romantic feast for two (with Danya’s help) and Vivi and Eric Lam (hilarious boy) argued like a married couple. Those two are gonna make awesome Pledgemasters.

 Now, if only I can write an awesome paragraph summary of a kick-ass female superheroine for the Newsarama contest by tomorrow, the past couple of weeks will have rounded out quite nicely.
