today is the very firstest day in... gosh.. 3 years? that i have weighed in at LESS than 200 lbs. woop HA! i've now hit my goal weight to where i can actually buy my shrinking frame some more clothes, but ironically, i won't have money to even THINK about it until... until... hrm. well, about a month or so from now. maybe by then i can say that i've gone down two pant sizes instead of just one. actually, i have no idea where i am at size wise. last time i even tried on anything, i think i was in limbo between a 16 and an 18. damn birthing thighs. yes, yes, i know the term is actually 'birthing hips', but i think the birthing area sunk a bit low on me, judging from where my, uh.. sturdiness is located. okay, so it's just a lame excuse.
but i'm REALLY excited. not that to look at me you would think i'm excited, i AM the very model of an apathetic individual, afterall.
operatic is in town from georgia! i hope to see him, to meet him finally. it was great meeting him on the phone anyway. i love hearing other people's awe as they discover the beauty that is portland for the first time, to hear the joy they get from what they are seeing/feeling that i feel practically all the time. being in portland is like being on proverbial ecstasy all the time for me. silly, i know, when a lot of you who have been here for practically your entire lives look around and say "erm... yeah? whuttaboutit?" i guess that you would need to spend time in cities that look WAY different, such as phoenix. phoenix is like an alien planet in comparison to portland.
but enough about how i'm still in love with the city. i'm certain that i bore you all to tears with my "but it's PUUUUURDY!" rambling.
i'm going to be poor.. VERY poor.. over the next month or so, but i'm still in a social mood. mayhaps after the wedding is over and i have the entire house TO MYSELF for a week *eep!*, that i can host some social events? like silly stuff like board gaming. sorry that i don't have any games that are really good for group playing for the ps2, but you're certainly welcome to bring them. i could provide the venue, if you wish to bring a six pack of beer or whatnot. or even just soda.
as andrea reads this an instantly starts having visions of hopping cahrazay parties while they're on their honeymoon, i'm sure. but i won't, i promise.
if you wish to do something low key and non money related next week, gimme a call.
