Fun and games

Try reading the 1-star reviews of classic books on Amazon.
The more "Classic" it is, the funnier the reviews.
Poor Cervantes, and poor King James.

Stovetop

On Sunday, the kitchen had a long overdue tidying. Then, [profile] mitrian made soup from fresh tomatoes and basil.
With the rediscovered stove top, I've cooked something every day this week. Grilled sandwiches, 2 quarts of applesauce, and mashed potatoes.

Tonight's very silly. I have pink mashed potatoes!

Later this week: cookies!

Mountain View squirrels...

In other parts of town, they scare or right out steal food from people.
Here, a squirrel was chewing a pine cone loose for the pine nuts. First, of course, he had to release it from the tree...landing it 6 inches in front of Shippou (from a tree almost twice the height of our building. Those things drop with a mighty thud!).
Shippou can jump really far backwards. :(

Dear Mr. Herbert,

Thank you. You'll always be my hero.

Respectfully,

Less of me than there was before

Really, it is just a number. But we tend to mark increments of 25 as milestone numbers.

My scale had a nice secret to share with me today. In a little under 11 months, I have lost 75 pounds.

No, I haven't fallen off the bandwagon yet, I've just been quietly walking its perimeter. Though, now, it's time to help pull the wagon. ;)

Kikikimi plays dress-up

It's probably a really good thing that Jon's too busy to play with his camera today.

I've been playing with my hair. Right now, I have Heidi braids.
Half an hour ago, I had a Leia-in-Jabba's-palace bun and braid.
The buns on the ears bit everyone remembers ended up too itchy, so it was right out.
Maybe I'll try a Padme style next.

silly game memes :)

I escaped from the Dungeon of Kikikimi!

I killed Themagnificat the gelatinous cube, Rainhag the mind flayer and Joceiphus the leprechaun.

I looted the Wand of Needlework, the Wand of Lace Making, the Crown of Kittymumbles, a Figurine of Iamabot, the Dagger of Msa, a Figurine of Evilpuppy, the Shield of Utukki and 73 gold pieces.

Score: 248

Silly musings

The iTunes music store seems to prefer P.E.A.C.E. songs to War songs by a factor of 4:1.
No Why Can't We Be Friends for me tonight.

Sesame Street and weight loss

Sometimes, when I step on the scale in the morning, I feel like the Count from Sesame Street.
Sometimes, exercise makes me feel like Super Grover. It seems like I can do anything (though I'm still clumsy me).
But, I don't believe Cookie Monster's new mantra yet. I'm just not to that point. :)

Pet Peeves

Given, this is a minor one, but it reared it ugly head again today.

When people use ones name as a curse word, or similarly, when people use ones name in the tone they would use with a pet that urinated on the carpet.

There's just something about that that annoys me even more than being called a b***h.

Not gaining it back

The bathroom scale is my friend today.

The grand total of weight lost in my fitness venture is 33lbs.

Since I last posted about this, I have added some light weight training twice a week. It would nice to be able to go up stairs without hearing *crack* with every step.

Yummy

It's a nice day, and a nice lunch when you find good, cheap (and quick!) food in walking distance. Hooray for a huge $5 chicken teriyaki rice bowl!

After a couple of quiet years of getting along, this afternoon, my lungs reaffirmed that they still hate me.

No, lady. I'm not a satanist.

Been a while, hasn't it?

I've been thinking about this type of post for a month now. I haven't done it because for some reason, I felt that some people would think less of me.
But here I am, anyway. Hopefully, you will see this post less as, "Look at me! Look at me!" and more as something inspirational.

Since November 29, I've lost 26 lbs. I haven't used any special diet, but I make sure I get at least 20 minutes of exercise of some form, usually walking or biking, every day (excluding sick time).

Almost a month ago, my previously best-fitting pants became loose enough to fall down.
Yesterday, I bought clothes in a size smaller.

You're welcome to come walk with me!

Skip this, I'm just whining

So, just after new years Jon gets a cold. It lasts about 3 days. As usually happens with spouses and colds, I came down with it as he was getting over it. It's been an entire week now, and I'm still dealing with it. It would seem that my immune isn't as good as it should be.

The basil is replanted, and new seeds are potted in its place :)

I've put the new pots in the bathroom window, where they'll get the most light over the next few days. I wonder how [personal profile] funjon will react to that?
