some ponderings...

here are some things i have been sitting around thinking about these past few days. in addition to work, you can see how very exciting my life is...



when we bought this new laptop, we fell for the ploy of accepted the offer of the free wireless card that came with it. and every month we have the joy of paying $69.99 for the unlimited use and convenience of having the internet anywhere we want. on the couch, in-between the 2nd and 3rd cushion, with your legs postioned just so and the laptop balanced on top, in between the hours of 3 and 4 am, on every other tuesday.



i just love the fact that my internet usage comes in and out at least 3 times each time i am logged on. i also love the fact that i signed a 2 year contract for it. thanks for a piece of shit and crappy service most of the time my free wireless card at&t!





alos, i haven't washed my face yet today. why not you ask? well because i am to lazy to get up and do while i am this comfy inbetween the 2nd and 3rd cushion on the couch trying to do my part and conserve water. however, i just felt my forehead and my hand came away with a rather nasty coating of....face grease? no wonder i started getting acne at the age of 26! i also became an oil rig. seriously, i need to stop typing and go wash this thing....



however it is obvious the lure of the free wireless card has me enslaved to finishing this post, alas oil removal will have to wait. i have noticed that while i have stuck with my exercise program for 6 months come tomorrow....weight loss is hard. yeah, i know, i am a genius for figuring it out. but seriously, it is hard! i haven't stuck with anything involving weight loss for more than a month before now, and i am so proud to come up on the day that marks #6 month!



of course the girl that sometimes spends her time on the elliptical in front of me and guinevere, on her cell phone, and reading a magazine, and stopping every 5-10 minutes to saunter over to the water cooler for a drink, weighing in at a whopping 105lbs. is totally motivating. when she waltz's in with her sports bra and scrub pants on which we are not even allowed to wear which look so fabulous i never have nasty thoughts about pushing her off her machine and laughing gleefully as she falls to the ground. i never imagine her sitting in bed for months recovering and gaining weight because she can't exercise because of her 2 broken legs. i would never think something so nasty.




i am also helping a dear friend plan her wedding for next May. I have emailed and searched countless places. it is a ton of work, but totally worth it. the thing that relly gets me scratching my head is why do so many palces have these packages that are supposed to make your wedding day perfect but also cost mroe than your home and if you want to change or only use some of their service, they aren't thrilled to have your business. don't get me wrong, i mean weddings are expensive. i know it. but in this economy, you would think that someone somewhere might understand that you don't really need that butlered egg roll service. cheese and crackers and fruit would be just fine. No, that one year membership to the next door museum of old car parts isn't really what i wanted...oh...you don't have a package that doesn't include that? no, thankyou 4 courses would be jsut fine, we don't need 8...oh, that's all you have?

my gym instructor is gone gone gone. on my 6 month day of dragging myself into the torture chamber getting fit and healthy, she is gone. we went to breakfast this morning where i thanked her for all she has done to encourage me and also to let her know the new guy may not be allowed to measure my body fat....

also, the best news that happened, work called me off tonight! i haven't been caclled off in almost a year and it seems like everyone else has had more than one turn, so i am glad it is finally mine!

hope you are all planning on having a great weekend!

You are above me on SITS so I thought I'd check your blog out :) GREAT job on the exercise. My gym does not allow scrub pants either OR cell phones (Thank God, that would annoy me). I'm going to follow you if that's okay...and I'll try to catch a few older posts here and there so I'm not too far out of the loop. Have a good Friday!

Have a good long weekend! I have a girl at my gym I kind of want to punch in the face too.....

I have often wondered if it would be worth getting a wireless card and service. I always think that when I'm in a place without service, but you can often find a network that requires a payment for 3 days, so we usually go that route.

I know what you mean about the screwed-up internet! It is SO frustrating, and always seems to be at its worst when I;m trying to have an IM conversation with somebody!
