meet my motherfuckin' motherfuckin
I went to American Eagle to exchange the pants that didn't fit, & I found another, I thought just similar, pair of pants, in the same size, that fit decently. I could stand to lose a few to make them fit perfectly, but I will & I refuse to go a size up. NO WAY. I go to exchange them & the girl is like "these are exactly the same pants." WTF. One fit, one didn't, but they are labeled as exactly the same thing!|
Marko came to the mall with me & as I was bemoaning the lack of pants in the store that fit me (I seriously still refuse to believe that I am SO BIG that THE BIGGEST PANTS IN THE STORE don't fit me properly) he started to explain why he thought that was, then abruptly stopped. I finally wrestled it out of him: he said that he thought "usually, girls who have a big butt, hips, and thighs" "like I do," also have a big stomach, & I don't, so that's my problem. As endearing as his efforts to understand my situation are, I really don't think that's it, lol.
Anyway, I was very disappointed that they did not have a single white tank top in the store (WTF) so I exchanged my too-big one for something else. Instead of a pair of pant & one top, I ended up with a pair of pants (the same pair, for cheaper) & 3 tops. Sweet!
We also stopped by Teavana, where I was talked into buying some expensive (wtf!?) tea by the nice sales girl. She really wasn't even talking to me about tea, just other stuff, but then I wanted to buy something from her, & I DID like the tea anyway, & it's rare for me to find tea that I like, so...
We went to the Apple store to ogle & touch things.. I had never held an iPhone before & wanted to check it out. One thing I have to say I think sucks about it is those tiny ass on-screen keys for the keyboard. What the hell. We also went to T-Mobile where I ogled the Google G1, which I thought was a lot more interesting TBH. Oh well, it's not like I'm getting either of those, so :P
So.. it was pretty nice to spend that time with Mark. I dropped him off after that. Then I went to the gym & ran intervals until I thought I would puke. I thought it was a highly successful workout.
At home... I spent 2 hours watching Dexter & putting my clothes away. Christ, I have too much. Ever since then I've been cooking: a HUGE stir-fry involving butternut squash, onion, garlic, bamboo shoots soaked in chili oil, turnips, potatoes, & bok choy. SO FULL. I also made some banana-walnut bread, since I had 2 overripe bananas sitting around waiting to be used. I made soymilk, put some milk for yogurt in the oven, & boiled a chicken to make baby food for the gliders. Sheesh... what a mess to clean up.
I finally figured out how to use my computer's camera! In retrospect, I am dumb. The color sucks, though.
A pic of what happens to me when I sit down anywhere. I lay on my bed for a few minutes to change the Dexter episode & the cats started piling on. Luckily I managed to elude the dog for the time being. And yes, I am wearing a shirt! My bra straps are just more visible than the shirt's, haha. I was changing. Oh well!
So full... and SO much cleanup to do in the kitchen! Booo :(
