If you haven't seen them yet, you must check out 30 Second Bunnies Theatre. It's fscking hilarious. Be sure to click the bunny at the end of Jaws. The Exorcist is my favorite. I'm going to have to watch Alien over again to get the full appreciation.

The Husband and I spent a wonderful day together the other day. It's amazing how something as simple as snuggling together on the couch can make you feel loved. The intimacy of a touch can convey feelings in a way even looking deep into your SO's eyes and saying a heartfelt "I love you" just can't do. I'm still reeling from the effects of that day. The night after, we were joking and horsing around all evening. I haven't lauged that hard in a long time. It culminated in the funniest experience I have ever lived through. I usually get something to drink and take in into my bathroom so I can take the large number of pills that I have to choke down each night. The Hubby sometimes comes in and mooches some of whatever liquid I have so he can take his pills. I don't know what made me do it but he had a mouth of pills and was on the verge of taking the drink when I started stomping my feet and yelling "MINE MINE MINE!!!" like an angry 3 year old. We laughed so hard we literally cried. He, of course, returned the favor when it was my turn to take my pills: which made it funnier. Two days later we still look at each other and chuckle about that. That, my reader(s), is love. That I can relive that moment with him at a glance...

OK, off the sappy soap box...

(Insert giddy school girl here) I'm going to Paris...I'm going to Paris...pbbbbbbbt! (Remove school girl)

Why, you ask??!!! Why not, I reply!! Seriously folks, half fares It's going to be great. We're going to be the traditional tourists. I've already got 5 books (each with a different map) and a French for Travelers set. I SO can't wait. We leave in November. Hoody!

Why is it that when you do something that is outside of the societial "norm" folks automatically judge you and apply labels as necessary? But when they do the same things themselves, they act as if it's totally normal? I'm so tired of folks that say they are open minded treating me as if I'm some kind of freak because I don't act like a little automoton droid and behave just like someone else. I was fun to hang out with yesterday but they find out I have a tattoo and ride a bike and suddently I'm part of the "bad element"? I'm exactly the same person I was yesterday. I've had this tattoo for a year and I've been riding for a month now. I didn't wake up this morning and decide "Oh, I suppose I should behave differently now since I don't fit the mold of suburban housewives in my area". Why does different automatically equal bad? Folks never take the time to LEARN about what they are automatically labeling as bad. They just say "Well, my buddy/parent/spouse/relative/personal hero says people who do that are bad therefore I will treat them that way". What a cop out. It really hacks me off.

In other news...I've reached a new low (weight wise smart alec) at 200.2 YAY! Let me tell you there will be a party when I get under 200. I haven't been under 200 pounds since I was in high school. It's a good feeling.

Low carb is guuuud.

So, I've fought the proverbial weight battle that too many women fight. In the effort to reach the ideal that the general public thinks that all women should fit. I tried Weight Watchers, ediets, and good old fashioned will power. None worked. I was so frustrated. I had resigned myself to being overweight, even if only slightly. Then we tried the whole Low Carb thing. The first two weeks were hard, very hard, but the payoff is so worth it. I finally got over the addiction to sugars and all those cravings. I started at 225 pounds. This morning I weighed in at 201.6. Oh yeah baby. Feeling good.

The most fun you can have with your clothes on

The Husband and I went on a 70 mile ride yesterday with a friend from work. Let me tell you, it was an absolute blast. I used to be a bit skittish about turns but no more. We went to Norris Dam (insert string of puns keyed off the word Dam). The road there was a bunch of curves and switchbacks. I LOVED it. I hope to do it next weekend (If we can convince him to go again).

A friend of mine started a blog so I thought I would get back into blogging. I've been so busy but I suppose I could have made time to blog. So much in my life has changed. I just don't feel like the same person that I was when I started this. Oh well. Things change right? How The Husband finds the time to blog several times a day is beyond me. I suppose if he can do it so can I.

I guess I'm just tired of not being able to say what I want to say for fear of people judging me or using my comments against me. I assume that people that I work with read this (even if they don't) and as a result, I can't say some things I want to say. The Husband ends up having to listen to my day's complaining in the car on the way home. He's a good sport.

My birthday is coming up and folks are asking me what I want. I honestly don't know what I want. I mean, I have a TON of things on my wish list at but that stuff is so expensive. I tell ya what, if you just HAVE to do something for me on my birthday, Head down to your local homeless or battered women's shelter and donate some of your time. They always need someone to do SOMETHING. It may be little to you but It'll do worlds of good for them.
