Well it was pretty crappy (read the Worst Things thread), but while I was bawling my eyes out on the way home from my mother's place I told T. about how he's pretty much saved my life and then started feeling really blessed by having him in my life. Then we came home, and since it's our anniversary tomorrow, he gave me a gift. We promised no gifts, but he broke the rules and even made sure it followed the traditional anniversary material rules (wood). He got me a handcrafted wooden fox necklace pendant and told me to wear it whenever I need to feel strong. I just started bawling my eyes out again and he told me how he is inspired everyday by me to be a better person. I just don't even know...how the hell am I so lucky?

AWWWWW!!!!! PPPP, I am sorry things were rough, but I am so happy that you and T have such a great marriage. And your fox sounds beautiful.

I am eating chocolate and listening to Turandot. (Pavarotti/Sutherland recording, but the majesty of Pavarotti makes up for my dislike of Dame Joan's singing).

Dad and I failed to skype but managed some heartfelt emails. He agreed that 'not now' would be best for both of us, so we're going to try to see each other (briefly) in February. Also, NatureBoy arrived 1,5 days early! It is officially snuggle party time at my house!

We gave each other small gifts yesterday (bamboo cutting board for him; fancy 100% bio cranberry juice for me) but mostly used the bows and ribbons to wrap each other up in ridiculous ways. Which means, I tied bows and ribbons into HIS hair since I apparently have some kind of anti-ribbon field, and as soon as they touched me, they landed on him instead ;)

I really want this.

his site doesn't have it shown, but i bet if you emailed and asked if they could snag a shirt from the stall in Bryant Park for you, i bet they would. when i was there a few weeks ago they had a whole crapload of them in that design (black shirt with the text and pickle in neon green. now i realize the pickle is not dancing, it's kind of pointing. or maybe disco dancing?) Nice folks.

I can see how those are interchangeable.

My friends are moving from down the road to several hours journey away (booo! Not the best thing!) so they were giving stuff back they'd borrowed over the years. I'd lent them Princess Mononoke and when they gave it back I remarked that I don't have anything to watch DVDs on now my laptop is broken, to which my friend replied that his work is throwing out an old laptop and I can have it. He said it's not brilliant, but it works, which is clearly an improvement over the cracked screen, missing-a-D, no-working-usb-ports machine I have at the moment!

Also, they gave me some hummus and seitan chorizo they weren't going to finish. Gah, I'm going to miss them!

yesterday i found a bottle of tonic water in the laundry room.
so, as one does, i shouted "hurray!" and went and bought gin.
i started to fix a gin and tonic and when i opened the tonic water, there was no fizz. strange, i thought, it must have been opened. but i think that's ok, i like the TASTE of tonic, so i can live without the fizz. i pour it in, stir it up, have a taste, and BAM. it's gin and water.
my mom stores water for emergencies (we have a well and if the power is out, we have no water). apparently, i was drinking the stored water. whoops.
so my best thing is having real, fizzy tonic water. with my gin. and finishing this week's work today, so i can be free and spend the week cooking, hanging with my brother, and stressing about how none of my shiitake is going to fit in my suitcases.

I bought pants. Which sounds dumb, but I haven't had the self esteem to try on new pants in two years, but I did it and bought the first pair that fit and they're not perfect and I had to keep saying "I hate this" under my breath for a solid hour but I bought pants.

I understand that completely. Clothing manufacturers make it a soul sucking experience.

I bet they look great!

I had brunch with a dear friend, and I was able to give her a little gift that made us both happy. It was one of those things where I saw it (just a pair of socks) and immediately thought of her. Brunch at Veggie Galaxy and talking with her was just absolutely divine. Otherwise I've spent the day napping and hanging out, and it's just be a lovely Sunday. I wish I would have requested this week off, but I'm happy with what I have.

Biker boy came home while I was listening to Christmas music and started singing along. But he didn't know the words, so he ended up singing about Amos and how he got to be so adorable. And then we started quoting '16 Candles' at each other.

Its 5:33, I am awake and will be shortly leaving to walk 3 miles to the swimming pool to swim 2.5k, I did the same thing yesterday and I'm pretty exhausted. I then have to go into work for 9 1/2 hours.

The best about the day will be -
- I am in work with just my 2 closest colleagues (no other staff or managers except 1 small visit) so not much work will get done. Were only in to answer calls anyway
- When I finish today I will be off until January 6th!
- I weighed myself this morning and (touch wood) have managed to lose 14lb in the last 5 weeks

Early Christmas dinner at NatureBoy's mom's place. We went walking in the woods, and she made vegan apple crisp (with crispy bits of my dreams!) and salad, falafels, veggies, and dark chocolates, all of it vegan, even though they're flexitarian. I was so touched! She was super cute about everything, too. Yay vegan christmas. :D

Got up early and got all my shopping, including groceries, done by 10am. My asparagus doesn't have to leave the house tomorrow except for a quick run.

I told my boss office parties give me anxiety (not a lie) so he let me leave early before the party and I got to leave with my gift I brought for dirty Santa which I secretly wanted all along. I blasted You're a Mean One Mr Grinch on repeat on my way home.
