Exciting Saturday Night

Ugh, what a terrible week.

I mentioned the details in a friends-only post, so I don't need to rehash. However, let's just say Monday night was intense when someone decided to drive by my home and comment in a text on how I'm home alone...well that's just weird, not cool. But whatever, since then nothing has happened, everything is dead and gone. Now it's just a matter of pulling things back together where they fell apart.

My car got "broken" into Tuesday night. I don't know who did it, I don't remember if I locked the door (usually I'm pretty good at locking the doors and hearing that satisfying "beep!"). When I came out on Wednesday morning, I got in the car and knew something wasn't right. The console was open, and its contents strewn about the front seat. Nothing was taken, save for maybe 50 cents; I don't keep valuable stuff in my car. The windows weren't broken, so I was lucky. Still, as my cousin put it, enough to mess with my sense of security and safety.

I got a Wii Fit, and I'm finding it's really good for when I don't want to go to the gym. However, I think for me, I get a better cardio work out at the gym. I get my heart rate up, but I don't feel like I'm dying like I do at the gym. It'll be good for days I don't feel like going to the gym. I'm happy to report I've lost about 20 pounds in the last year, and my BMI is normal.

I was going to go watch the inauguration on tv on Tuesday, but I wasn't feeling great, and I threw up that morning because I had taken my multivitamin on an empty stomach, so I chose not to leave work and just plow through the day. I will say, he is our president, and I stand behind him. But...I didn't really get the "beauty" and "inspiration" people were finding in his speech. It was no JFK "ask not what your country can do for you," etc. All I heard was "hope and change" and no really substantial methods of solving this country's numerous problems. If he had experience in this, at least more than one term in the Senate, I would probably feel a bit more encouraged. Anyone can tell you they promise change, but why is everyone so convinced he can deliver? Does being a good orator make for a good leader?

Either way, a great day in American history.

I made cupcakes today. Gingerbread made from scratch, brushed with a ginger infused glaze. Carmelized mango buttercream frosting (real buttercream - just eggs, 5 sticks of butter, and candied syrup). That shit took 4 hours to make, and it only makes 12! Then I got sick and couldn't eat one.

This rounds out a shit week. May next week be better.

Glad he stopped harassing you. I really really hope this will be behind you.

Where on earth do you keep finding these guys? You really have a tendency to date weird guys, don't you?

I find these guys all over the place. It's not so much that I'm choosing the same guys, but I do tend to keep them around for much longer than I ought to.

Thanks for the support. :)

we start over month to month. like, last month i had 421 mins. this month im up to 782. so come Feb 1st we will both be back to 0. ... just a thought. we might set up a myspace page or facebook page to keep track of everyones min totals... and for discussion etc... :) it would be fun to have more people to compete against! its one of the driving forces keeping me doing it.
