This is awesome! If I could get my family to do this I would consider a huge, huge victory but ethically and health-wise.

I'm honestly not very hopeful about it lasting long. She's a serial dieter, and this is just another diet to her. But, selfishly, I'm hoping she'll have a better idea what to feed me in the future.

It's funny how when you first get married you give the other person the best looking potato or burger when you are serving up. After 18 years, you'd better believe that that crispy potato is going on my plate not his.

I'm probably doing it wrong. We're still dating but already have an unspoken agreement that the larger pasta portion is mine.

Hahaha! It's only been 2.5 years for me, but I'm already starting to pick and choose when he gets the better plate.
Fee, I admit to occasionally weighing the bowls to make sure we have the same amount of pasta.

haha, we have a system where I serve myself first, eat my first portion really fast, then I take seconds, then he takes seconds on whatever is left.

Kitty has suddenly become very determined to try stealing water from my glass when I'm trying to drink out of it... I'm not sure where he learned this, because I don't let him!

Friends and I stopped by the store on the way home from a show last night to get chocolate chips to bake cookies. Got home and remembered we're out of milk. Genius solution: melt inside of ice cream sammich and sub for milk in the recipe. Best cookies ever.

I just realized something biker boy said last night at his parents'. We were talking about one of his brothers and his in-laws and biker boy said, "People sometimes forget that you're marrying the family..." (I don't think that's always true, it might be more accurate to say that you marry your partner's relationship with their family inasmuch as that's part of who your partner is, but that's neither here nor there...) Anyway, his step-mom was agreeing and then he said, "That's why* Kirstin has never met my step-father..." He has never really had any use for his mom's husband and just thinks he's sort of a waste of space. I know I'm not 16 so I shouldn't be picking apart little things he says and ascribing some deep meaning to them, but I can't help it. What I didn't hear at the time but occurred to me this morning was "I want Kirstin to want to marry me and meeting him doesn't exactly bolster my case." I'm going with it.

*Emphasis mine. I mean, obviously. People don't speak in bold. But you know what I mean...

Monkeytoes, that's what it sounds like he was saying even if you don't pick apart little things he says and ascribe some deep meaning to them. Go with it!

We were watching a nature documentary last night and the narrator said "bears are messy eaters". My boyfriend looked at me and said "I didn't know you were a bear".

Dude, no lie, I was waiting for an update on this strategy (on account of facebook) because it is the best idea.

Definitely. I started eating breakfast before I get dressed and lunch I shove my face as far over the table at work as I possibly can. I look like weirdo but at least I am a clean weirdo.

So my partner busted her asparagus to do the wrong chapter of our project. the chapter that i had in the bag last week. i don't know whether to tell her i did it already, or just let her think that she did just fine doing the wrong chapter. i get paid differently depending on what i do but i think i am going to let her thing that she did the right thing and just take the hit- not that big of a hit really, and what's done is done.
of course this is why i am terrible at business.

Mtoes, that's so cute. I love picking apart the subtleties of what people are thinking via what they say. Even if it's totally wrong, it's still fun.

I may have gotten kind of...entirely drunk last night and knocked on my crush's door. Actually my friend did, and I was polite enough to stand in front of it until I knew he wasn't answering. Hopefully he didn't because he didn't hear.
I feel dumb. A little like a floozy for kind of throwing myself at him. I don't think I actually did- we really just talked at the bar we both happened to end up at, as usual. But I was pretty drunk, so I'm in that 'regretting all actions ever' stage. But then I'm like "Why the hell should I feel bad for flirting with someone I've slept with!" So it's getting twisted in feminist thought and actual emotions and it's no fun.

You're not kidding, PP. I used to sleep 12-15 hours a day when I took citalopram. That stuff is crazy.

Dudes, I'm on 40 mg of citalopram and I fall asleep at like 8pm. This now makes sense.

That's what I'm taking! 20mg - tired allatimes (even when I don't take it when I'm supposed to). It's the second choice on the NHS Scotland formulary (after Prozac), which is why I'm on it. I guess they recognise that they don't really know what actually works best, so they're just going with cheapest first or something.

I Skyped with my sister and my wee nephew today. He's so big! And he's crawling and can sit up on his own and pull himself up to stand. He's not even 8 months old yet. And he's babbling a lot now. It's great. I love that kid.

I was about to have a major freak-out because my roommate and his dumb boyfriend left chicken guts all over a cutting board (ours!) in the sink. Then like five minutes later he came in and washed it. Deep breaths, lady.

Yesterday I went on a 12 mile run that ended at Haymarket in Boston. There's a street market there that's kind of like a farmer's market but is just lots of cheap produce that's very ripe. I got an eggplant, two leeks, a bag of giant carrots, 4 tomatoes, two large zucchini, three red bell peppers, 5 bananas, a bunch of kale and three bunches of asparagus. For $12.25. I think I know where I'm going from now on for my veggies!

Is it OCD that I just bought new cutting boards and donated our plastic ones to him? So gross.

I probably would have done the same thing. That's super gross and knowing how plastic ones cling to germs and stuff, I'd always be thinking about it.

No, I would have done the same. But, granted..... I more than likely (actually very highly likely) have OCD so I'm probably not the best one to answer.

My farts are stinking this evening. Haven't had stinky farts in a while. I'm guessing it is all the cranberry juice I've drunk since Friday evening. 3 litres of it to be exact but at least my kidney infection seems to be gone. Didn't think it would actually work since it was definitely more than a UTI. Yesterday evening I was getting to the stage where I had to force myself to drink fluids because I was feeling so ill.

We've had discussions about him not cooking meat in our pots and pans, but he still uses our utensils, and it didn't even occur to me until today that he's probably been putting meat on our cutting boards the entire time. I guess I needed to specify every single item I'm uncomfortable with raw meat touching? We should be out of this house within the month, so he can have the cutting boards, and I'll just deal with the rest until we're gone.

It just didn't cook right. The top was super crusty and brown and it just tasted kind of weird and salty.
