BYOC!!! Bring Your Own Crazy!!

First off... Followers.  Oh. My. God.  I have 133.  I can't believe that and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the love and support I get from all of you.  Though the flip side of that is I lost another follower, I used to have 134.  Boo Hoo.  But seriously - fuck 'em - obviously they are missing out on the party.

Okay on to BYOC - I know I need some fun after my last week of starvation - I can't tell you how fantastic my mood is and it's all because I had some potatoes last night and some chai latte this morning!!!  OMG!!!  What a difference some food can make.

Post on your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

1. In the spirit of Easter – tell me – what is your all time favorite Easter candy?

Definitely Reese's peanut butter eggs.  They are the perfect candy - the proportions of chocolate to peanut butter is sheer perfection!!!


2. What is your Zodiac sign?

I'm a Taurus and I've been told I'm a pretty damn typical taurus - stubborn as hell.

3. Are you holding on to something you should let go of?

I'm sure I am, aren't we all - or we wouldn't have this extra weight, right? (well okay I speak for me and my extra weight).  As a previously impervious substance I really wasn't able to identify things that I might be holding on to as I really didn't let things touch me - though I suspect it was touching me on some level.  As a currently strong substance I can see what I've got and I'm doing a pretty damn good job of letting stuff go.  It's still a really hard balancing act for me though, as I really struggle with what things are important - feeling wise - and what things aren't.  I absolutely need some remedial training in the feelings department.  I've gotten as far as - I think they're good things to have.  I think they are big deals.  But - when I have feelings about my husband or sister or other important people in my life - it's very hard for me to know what to do about them.  Is this the kind of thing that's really important and I should be listening to and making decisions about - or is this the kind of thing that's a sign that we need to deal with soemthing - or is this the kind of thing that I should just shrug off because it's just not that big a deal.  Perhaps in Chicago we could have Remedial emotions 101.  I'll bring the vodka.

4. What are three “nevers” you follow in your life?

Jesus God, Draz!!!

Nevers?  Man this has me totally stumped.

-Never tell a lie you care if you get caught in
-Never make big sweeping decisions when you are full of powerful emotions (or powerful hormones) that could effect said decisions
-Never burn bridges that you could possible need at some point in the future

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

Real life - well holy shit - I didn't know how miserable I was until I could eat again.  I kept thinking it would get better, but oh my God.  I just ate the rest of my chicken salad paste and it was just miraculous to be able to just eat a spoonful and not worry that I was going to throw it up.  I had chai latte this morning - that has milk in it and it was morning - who knew being able to start your day off with a yummy warm liquid could make such a huge difference in the quality of your life? 

In Blogland - I've been so consumed with my starvation diet that I wasn't a very good blogger friend.  I read a few posts and I commented a few times, but I have a lot to catch up on!!  Your support, however, during this past week has been just flat out amazing.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!!  Thank you very, very, much.

Good God Read - you kicked ass on the Never question...freaking love those. And your follower probably stopped blogging - I'm sure it wasn't personal cuz they know I'd kick their ass. YAY - eating again - woott!!! I just had a DQ blizzard - just thought I should share that.

I'm glad you're feeling better!

I've only dated Tauruses (Tauri?). No, I'm not coming onto you.

Peanut butter eggs ARE the best! They are 20x better than a regular Reese's.

Man, I'm glad I don't have any in the house right now because if I did, it would be in my belly.

Dizzy Girl said...

Damn Reese's Eggs. LOVE THEM.

I love your never's too...maybe I'll BYOC myself so I can think about my nevers too (don't be surprised if I steal one or two of them cause yours are good)

Glad to hear you're feeling better babe-

So glad to see that your "insignifiucant, miniscule, hardly worth it" un-fill did the trick and you are feeling better! Maybe you should call Dumb Ass and tell him how you feel!
