Congrats missd! Too bad you can't send out a blast email to all the customers who doubted your expertise because of you gender, age, etc...

My husband is out for the evening so I had an awesome evening of me time. I came home from work, went for an 8 mile run, came home, had a long, hot shower, watched the Birdcage, snuggled with kitties, and had watermelon and cereal (not together) for dinner. Now I'm going to go to bed early and read!

I don't have arthritis or a thyroid problem and my bones aren't full of fractures. Yay!

Bad news is that they still don't actually know what is wrong with me. We did even more blood tests this morning and the rheumatologist referred me to a gastroenterologist to check for, amongst other things, coeliac. I will be pissed if I have to give up pizza, pasta and bread and whilst I know their are g/f versions it'll make travelling a pain in the asparagus! But, to spin this positively again, the doctor's are actually helping me rather than just telling me to take some painkillers and go away so that's a nice change.

Hi Jojo, I have arthritis and some fractures, plus now osteoporosis, but my problem was hyperparathyroidism. The blood tests for umpteem years were marginally under the radar for that, but the impacts were devastating. My vitamin D levels seemed to compromise the test results and they weren't checking for that during the 20+ years I had fatigue and severe joint pain, plus lots of other autoimmune problems. So, make sure they're checking carefully for that! Good luck.

I'm crazy in love with my husband and seeing him with his family, me getting to know his family, and spending time in his hometown with him has been incredible thus far.

i was kind of in a rush to get a few things for this wedding i'm going to this weekend. I ended up having really good luck. I found a nice garment bag at a 99 cent store for $10.99 and a cardigan at a store that was going out of business for $13.

Yesterday's best thing was riding a million roller coasters. It had been over 10 years since I'd been on one, and I'm terrified of heights and things going mechanically wrong, thus me crashing painfully to my death, but I overcame those fears and had a really great time! The park wasn't super busy, so there weren't really any lines. We rode the two scariest ones three times each! Then we went to this really great Middle Eastern restaurant for dinner where there were so many options for me, and the food was fantastic. Best mini vacation ever!

ETA: Forgot that I won a stuffed yak because I did the guess your age game and the girl guessed that I was 18. Haha! I'm sure she was just being nice, and that they expect to be wrong all the time, but it still felt good.

Today's best thing is that I went into my new job location and got the lowdown on how a basic day runs, then took inventory of the kitchen and did all of my new employee paperwork and have started a menu for the week! I'm so insanely pumped to get started. I decided to start on Monday even though I'll also still be working at the HFS in the evenings, and I'm glad I did. I think getting an entire week to plan and shop and cook will give me a better idea of how it's going to go. They're also going to help me on the first day, so that's awesome. They've told me that I get free reign in the kitchen, I can make whatever I want as long as it's in the healthy food guidelines, and I can rearrange the space however I want! I'm also allowed to bring my own knives. So happy :)

I got my polling card today. My polling card that confirms I am registered to vote on whether Scotland should be an independent country or not. I can't even tell you how much this means. I haven't been posting here much because all my damn time has been either obsessively trawling twitter about the indyref or getting out there and chatting to people who are unconvinced or not involved or just generally disengaged. If independence is won it will be down to those of us speaking out in communities and doing it on the ground. I refuse to think what might happen if the country votes No. I just will not know how to deal.

I'm about ready to leave my house to go put on a performance. Said performance is... a type of performance that I have never done before! I'm so nervous but so excited! And my outfits are amaze. And what's underneath my outfits is, naturally, also amaze. (can you guess what kind of performance I'm doing yet?)

I just booked a wonderful, romantic, fiscally irresponsible but emotionally justified long weekend in England for my BF and me in November. Just the two of us, with country walks, pubs, plays at the RSC and the Wanamaker Playhouse, and sleeping here (NB we basically have a corner of this place, but still). Suddenly I feel less depressed about another semester of terrible freshman prose!
