I had to do water survival today (this involves swimming around a pool a bunch, breathing under water, hanging out in a raft, etc). Outside. In a pool. IN THE WATER IN FEBRUARY. The water was under 40 degrees F. I was spasming with cold. So, uh, my best thing was surviving that.

My first best thing is that mr. poopie and poopieboy finally made it safely to mr. poopie's sister's house, so I can stop worrying about them. Whew.

My next best thing is that I just found out I won't be keeping my cousin's baby at all next week, so other than baking orders I will have loads of free time all to myself! I'm practically giddy thinking about it!

And another thing that I think is pretty good but doesn't qualify as best: Earth Balance sent me an email asking me to take a survey, but when I went there the first question was to select either male or female with no other options. After I finished the survey I wrote them a comment on facebook, and they responded that they would talk to their tech team about it, which hopefully means they'll make some changes to include other options (or the option to decline answering at least). It's nice when companies listen!

The best thing about my day was our receiving an invite to go see a beautiful house a friend owns & is getting ready to sell ... it is not his main residence so we have never been there but I want to see it ... it is a listed, thatched detached place on half an acre in a nearby village ... it looks enchanting from the outside ... so we are going to have a wander around with him then off to the local pub for some grub.

I invited my family over for coffee, and everyone just said the cupcakes were good, they didn't ask any of the stupid "magic egg-free cake" questions. No one even said they were "actually" good!

Finallyyyyyy I got the video from my solo at my a cappella concert last month :)



(Here's the playlist of our whole set...I'm in the first 5, you can't really see my face in all of the because of the lights, but look for fluffy blue fingerless mittens and/or purple hair, that's me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YW0iTzB ... wcn98g1h1W)

NatureBoy called his place "our" place tonight, as he was pulling me to each of the windows to watch the changing colors of the sunset.

I managed to leave the house after contemplating it for half an hour. I'm so glad I did. I managed to go to university, buy shampoo, go to my singing lessons, take a walk. :)

Excellent! Will there be more?

The lovely Mr left me some chopped white & sweet potatoes last night because I've been reeght poorly lately. Even though I felt like crepe (day seven of bastardy migraine), I was able to throw them in a pot with tinned beans, tinned chopped tomatoes, harissa paste & liquid smoke and made the best smoky bean stew I have ever tasted! I had a bowl for dinner and another for supper & mah belleh is haaaaaaaappy.

The migraine also decided to ease off a bit and I managed to get a shower & feel a little more human.

So far, listening to the Hair soundtrack and feeling like I'm able to handle all the shiitake I'm trying to handle right now.

Went to the doc today (for the first time in almost exactly one year). First time I've been on a scale in 10 months or so.

So.

After going to the gym 364 days out of the last 365 days (!), I have lost 23.8 pounds.

My cholesterol was down 10% from the year before. Triglycerides were way down. Heart rate was 64.

I had an EKG done (to check for a potential worrying side effect of medication I'm on) and it looked just fine. Doctor said I have an "athletic" heart.

I have positive feelings with regard to this information.

Wow, that's amazing Footie! Congratulations on the great results of your hard work!

My best thing was that I posted on facebook earlier asking if anyone wanted to hang out because I was feeling kind of lonely, and my friend called asking if I wanted to meet for drinks. We went to a place around the corner that has $3 pint night on Mondays and ran into some friends of hers (one of whom I kind-of know) and we hung out with them for a while until they left, then we just hung out with each other for another hour and talked and it was so great. I don't have many friends, but the ones I do have are so awesome.
