You Are SO Lime Green Jello of Me

I remember when I was new to blogging and I proudly sheepishly proclaimed that the only thing that prevented me from posting everyday, or even multiple times per day was the fact that I didn't want to look like a loser with no life.

I still kinda feel like a loser with no life - but apparently now I'm not afraid to let y'all see it.
Let's not call this a slack *ss bullet post - let's call this.. catching everyone up on what's been going on with me in a very succinct way, shall we?

- I gained 2 pounds last Monday, but made up for it by losing 5 when I weighed in yesterday. (Net loss = 3 for those of you not so big with the math). That makes for a total of 28 pounds since July 2. Go me.

- Remember blind date guy? I never did tell any of you how it all went. So without revealing too many details - I met him, and I reallyreallyreally wanted to make it work. He was trying SO hard. And I really didn't want the fact that he had an awful mustache influence me, cause hello? Shallow? But then he wouldn't tell me his last name. After we'd already met once. Which of course led to my co-workers googling him, and finding out for me. So yeah, between his paranoia, goofiness, and mustache I realized that I just wasn't into it. Ugh.

- I am considering applying to a Master's program. This is terrifying. I mean as if any of my undergrad professors remember me at all. I contacted one of them for a reference letter and he said yes - but am at a total loss about what to do for the second reference letter. Even if I had gotten along with my honours thesis advisor (which I really didn't), he's passed away - so he's not an option. And writing? What writing do I do other than work emails and my blog? Should I send them a link to both blogs? My erotic writing is pretty hot and all - but not sure I really want to use that as an application piece. Ugh.

- I am considering therapy again. It annoys me. I have gone this route twice before. Isn't it enough already? But I'm just so angry all the time. And hurt. And occasionally burrowing. I probably need it - but it's just so frustrating. Why am I broken? Why do other people get through life just fine, yet I need to find a couch to sit and yip about all my crap on? I'm not ashamed of therapy - I'm a Psych grad and all - but I do find it annoying.

- Movies I have seen lately (and I don't feel like linking them all): Zomebieland, Whip It, Jennifer's Body, I Love You Beth Cooper, My Life in Ruins, (Second run theatres are awesome). Oddly, my favourite of them all? Jennifer's Body. Bizarre. But the writing is so hilarious...and it has Seth from the OC!

-My washing machine stopped spinning yesterday. I had dripping clothes all over the place. That spin cycle? REALLY important. Totally prevents you from having to wring out your clothes, and tossing them around the dryer for 10 hours straight. It took 3 1/2 hours for the clothes to dry, and 5 hours for my comforter. Fun.

- I blatantly stole that "Does Winnipeg Really Exist" clip on my sidebar from PsychGrad. Check it out- it's awesome!

- I hit "mark all as read" yesterday. I'm sorry. I love you. I'll try to do better. I was WEEKS behind. I couldn't help it.

Congrats on the weight loss! Yay!

WTG on the weight loss. I've lost a lot lately. Thanks, depression!

I've recently started therapy again, despite having been through TRUCKLOADS of it. No shame in going back, hon. None. We all need booster shots every once in a while.

Course, I need a series of shots, but still.

By the way, I do NOT have a cheesy moustache. Or ANY moustache, even. Just sayin. Ahem.

Course, you still live thousands of miles away, so that pretty much sucks.

Karen said...

No last name. Uh? Freak. Is he like a Megan's Lister or something?

I do all read once in a while too - It happens.

Psychgrad said...

Congratulations on the weight loss! That's awesome. I lost 25 but have kind of plateaued.

Blind date guy sounds creepy -- don't like the secrecy.

Can you use a work reference? You'd think that if you've been out of school for a while, they would take an alternative to a prof.

Good for the weight loss. Therapy never hurt anyone. Hang in there!

floreta said...

nothing wrong with therapy.. i go! :)

Rock Chef said...

28 pounds? Fantastic!

A guy who won't give you his last name? Not worth the time of day!

Winnepeg is real? I guess that means that you and Ali are real too! Cool! Glad I am not imagining you!

Therapy - if it helps you, then go for it. Alternatively a hobby to let out the anger - running, hockey, dominatrix (or is that for your other blog?)

Congrats on the weight loss....lemme do the cabbage patch!

Also? Creepy that the guy would not tell you his last name. Cahreeepy!

Mustaches are always an indicator of creepy things to come. Like popped collars are an indicators of douchey things to come.
Also? I want to see Whip It. Really. Really. Bad.

Floating Princess said...

That is creepy, that he wouldn't tell you his last name. Is he on some kind of watch list?

Congrats on the weight loss! That is the awesome!

And the "mark as read" thing? I totally do that too. Don't tell anyone.

Becky said...

That's weird that he wouldn't tell you his last name. Good for you for just saying no to that whole situation.

And CONGRATS on the weight loss! You are awesome :) I'm quite positive that you look HAWT!

Nenette AM said...

Congrats on the weight loss! Very happy for you. :)

And yeah, the mustache man with no last name sounds creepy. Personally, I'm okay with a mustache as long as there is an accompanying beard. And just a mustache is just as bad as just a beard. Ew.

I hope Winnipeg's real. If it's not, can I pretend I'm in Seattle or Vancouver?

I've been meaning to see My Life in Ruins. I'm a total sucker for romantic comedies.

Princess of the Universe said...

Pixie - thanks honey!

Karl - I missed you! Why not come up to Winnipeg? We can make out since you have no moustache.

Karen - Yeah, I feel guilty about the "read all" thing but now my reader is much less guilt-inspiring.

PsychGrad- I think I'll meet with the program and see what they suggest. Since I work in the U, maybe I can use one of THEM as a reference ;P

Suze - thanks honey!

Floreta- thanks for stopping by!

Chef - I MIGHT still be imaginary. But Winnipeg isn't.

Hilly- can you vlog the cabbage patch for me? kthanx.

Monste- I don't know why he thought this moustache was OK - it was so long it was off his chin. Trailing down to nothingness!

Princess- OK, I won't tell!

Nenette- it's only a little romance- mostly comedy. :) I love Nia.

Lynda said...

I think we all have that broken feeling from time to time. I am sure you are "normal", whatever that means. :)

Way to go on the weight loss!
