whine.... *why* do we have to do google accounts... *whine whine whine* I don't wannnaaaaa!!! I want something to stay the same for like, I don't know - more than a couple years.... (not really... just not wanting to re-sign up for something else I won't remember. Good Grief!)
k. Now that's off my chest.
Hey - I stayed at my exact weight last week. himself was down 1/2 a lb. All things considered I was pleased. So far this week I've gained 11 'movement' points -- which I needed! I performed on Sunday - which was a performance from which I learned... 3 times singing something in front of my computer does NOT a rehearsal make *inward groan* -- but hey -- it is good to learn something new everytime, right? [sarcasm, in case you missed it].
I walked with my pal T on Monday morning - that was fun - then Curves yesterday and today -- yay me!! I'm trying to 'trick' myself into believing that "I'm addicted to exercise" -- uh-huh... rather than the 'old me' - hating it, being bored etc... and we all know that 90% of any battle we have is in the mind. Sometimes it takes me awhile to realize that I can apply these principles to my *entire* life, not just one particular goal or objective I have.
We played pool Saturday night -- 3 couples and we all pretty much sucked. Some of us pocketed 2 balls (me), some of us more than that (everyone but T), but it was much fun. Himself cracked everyone up with his wit, humor, and trying to teach me how to hold the cue stick (is that even the right word for it?) We played snooker, then 8 ball. Good times.
I'm feeling good. Having less to be responsible for and "do" is so very freeing.
Here's a fun place to test your musical aptitude... I scored 75%, and was pleased with that - I'd probably do better if I took it again, I wouldn't be distracted by how >weird< the sounds are.
Copied this from Yerdoingitwrong's blog - I stop by occasionally to see what she's up to and haven't done a Meme, so here goes...
1. Explain what ended your last relationship.
I don't even remember the last relationship... it must've been P., who I dated *briefly* (can't stress how briefly enough)... he was, in just plain terms, a dork. Not a cute geek (I married one of those ;-), but a stingy, well-meaning, sex-starved, way-too-much-information-for-a-first-date dork. Bless his heart. He had a rough life, and I admire his stubborn bull-headedness. It ended because I was embarrassed to be seen with him. (and I'm embarrassed to admit that)
2. When was the last time you shaved?
Today. Miracle. When I first saw/read this meme that answer would have been very different.
3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.?
trying to figure out my invoices for performing and independent contracting work. I'm at a loss about whether or not I was paid for 3 gigs... my own fault. So now you know why I'm getting organized.
4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Reading This blog.
5. Are you any good at math?
Not really -- but I think I had stinky teachers for the first half, then bad attitude for the second half. One or two cute tutors might've helped...
6. Your prom night?
I went my senior year with T - very very very good looking guy, a great friend, who I tried really hard to be attracted to, but nope - never happened. We're still friends, though!
7. Do you have any famous ancestors?
My great aunt did our family tree back to Alexander the Great...
8. Have you had to take a loan out for school?
9. Do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?
I don't understand myspace stuff either. but I have a place on myspace.... one day I will spend some time like my pal Ronda, who ditched her blogger blog and went all myspace... traitor. I have to say, all the cute stuff really irritates me. I like that you can play music etc.. on it, though.
10. Last thing received in the mail?
I think there's a Michael's coupon in the ad/junk mail today. Real mail? Yikes. don't remember.
11. How many different beverages have you had today?
Coffee w/ vanilla soy milk & sugar (at home), coffee w/ the same at work, water, water, water... maybe will have a chocolate soy milk when I'm done...

Um... my first cool concert was Journey. But I went to Neil Diamond, and a free IBM thing with Louise Mandrell.
14. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
15. What's the most painful dental procedure you've had?
braces tightened. I had a root canal in Scotland, but was surprised at how un-painful it was.
16. What is out your back door?
we have 3 sets of french doors all leading to the back yard. One door has the spa :-D. One door has a brick path that leads to the spa :-D; and the other to the side patio which will soon become our 'arizona room' aka where himself can sit and smoke, screened in alternate living space.

Dedicated watch British telly night.

Berry... any kind but the weird blue thing. Not as fond of cherry flavor, but all the other berries.

I have 2 - one for house, one for car - the house key chain has a wooden carved thistle, and a plastic one that says, "You can take the girl out of Scotland, but you can't take Scotland out of the girl" given to me by my best Scottish Friend, W. Both key chains are on those rubbery wear-around-your-wrist-like-a-bracelet things, purple.

A red goose-down fluffy thing -- looks like a quilt, but fluffier. I'm sure it has a real name, but don't ask me.

Sunny. Malibu was gorgeous - it was windy, but you could see all the way to Rancho PV and even see Catalina out in the ocean... perfect day.

Open - we need the circulation! If it were up to himself, it would be closed... those Brits without central air or heating!! ;-)
