I used tooth whitener for like five minutes today, and I am confused why my teeth aren't instantly sparkly-fresh, like in a denture cream commercial.

And okay, I need a to-do list because I function better when I can cross things off.

to-do tomorrow )

All day I felt really down, and I didn't know why. My only guess was maybe my week of self-prescribed bed rest was getting to me, so I took a walk to the library. And I did feel better for a while, but eventually the badness creeped back on me.

Well, the cramps that just started combined with the number of actual tears I just shed looking at pictures of bouquets of flowers gives me a big old hint. I think I has the solution. Oh, PMS. You're really a jerk.

Want to see the actual bouquet that caused moisture to burst forth from my eyeballs? This'un here. It's not at all to my normal taste, but I just looked at it and thought, A woman must really be loved to get those flowers and dissolved into tears. Wtf is wrong with me.

And please note that this is seriously NOT a coy hint that I think someone on my flist should buy me these flowers. And my current music is a really weird coincidence.

ETA: Oh Jesus, I clicked the link to make sure it worked and it made me cry again. They're just so pretty. STOP DOING THIS TO ME, UTERUS.

Over the years, several people have told me that the key to having clearer skin is giving up dairy, but I ignored them. Because I love dairy products! I was never one of those kids who had to be bribed into drinking milk -- I did so willingly, with or without a shot of chocolate. Cereal with milk was a staple of my diet from earliest childhood, and of course, there was ice cream. I would obviously be happier with the milk than better skin. Besides, it probably wouldn't work.

Behold, I give up cereal for breakfast for a month or so, and my skin looks 100 percent better. Not perfect, but as good as it's looked in years. Curse you, skin, for showing me what I am capable of having! Ignorance is so much lovelier to live in.

So, goodbye to milk, and reducing my ice cream intake. I've switched to soy milk, and you know, it's pretty tasty on Corn Pops. I guess I can deal with this.

bloody hey

How long did I have blood on my face? Who knows, because no one told me it was there. See, sometimes I scratch my face and draw a tiny bit of blood on accident (gross, yes), but it happens on a not uncommon basis, so I have a sense of the odds:

There is a 50% chance no one will notice.

There is a 25% chance it will be seen, but politely ignored.

There is a 25% chance someone will see it and say, "Don't be alarmed, but OMG THERE IS BLOOD ON YOUR FACE AUUUUUUUUUGH."

At least, given my experience.

I don't even know why I post things like this. Clearly, I need to go to bed.

Tonight [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory and I went to Chip Shop, and oh my God, grannies mac, ilu. It was one of those amazing, rare moments where I ordered something and, when I took a bite, knew that this was exactly what I craving. Macaroni and cheese and sausage and peas! PEAS! Lord a' mercy, I have missed peas.

Speaking of food, I've been trying to lose weight recently, but I have no idea if it's worked at all or not. In fact, I feel like maybe I've even gained some weight. At first I was good about at least exercising more, if not cutting back on the food as much as I should, but now it's gotten so hot that it's really hard to even take a walk without dying.

I guess the only way to find out is the weight myself, but a) I don't own a scale and b) I'm afraid to. I could possibly go to GNC or somewhere and use their scale for a quarter, but the last thing I need is a public forum for my disappointment.

Today, I hopped onto ZocDoc and made an appointment for a physical next week. I don't think I've been to the doctor since, oh, 2007 or so, which probably accounts for the fact that I feel kind of excited about it. There are things I need to get accomplished -- like getting the arthritis I'm 98% sure I have diagnosed, and maybe getting tested for thyroid issues.

And yet (slight TMI) )
mizzmarvel: (riddle me this)
Okay, so I have limited experience with suitcases (I've only owned one set of luggage, which is now nearly four years old), but is it just mine that makes clothes smell horrible, or is this just a suitcase thing?

Because yeah, it seems like putting only clean clothes into a not-unclean suitcase would result in later unpacking clothes that maybe aren't exactly pine fresh, but are still wearable. Instead, it usually results in clothes that smell as if hobo with only a vague understanding of what a washing machine is has been trekking through cattle country and wearing them every single day for a week. To my knowledge, this is not the case at all.

For my part, I just Febreze the heck out of my luggage and hope for the best.

My thoughts are so deep.

Also, I would like to inform the masses that my stomach is currently making noises that sound like the slow opening of a creaky door in a horror movie. Something else to put on my resume?

For a while there in Ohio, I was eating pretty healthily, but today, given the choice between Subway and Chili's, I chose the option that gave me a huge plate of honey-chipotle crispers, fries, and buttered corn on the cob. Then there was fried chicken for dinner.

So unhealthy, yes, but MAN KFC TASTES GOOD.

Also, remind me why I should be surprised I'm between pants sizes at the moment.

1. If you're going out on a boat and happen to have long hair, bring some sort of elastic band to tie it back.

2. If you do forget that elastic and spend about four hours on an often fast-moving boat, occasionally getting sprayed in the face with salt water and hair flying all over the place, brush your hair as soon as possible. Do not tie it back after the fact and lol, saying you'll deal with it tomorrow. (I actually did lol at myself. I hated my past self today. If I could have taken a time machine to last night and punched myself in the face, I would have.)

3. When you're hair's already a tangled mess, maybe brush it before bathing and making it worse.

4. Try not to whimper too much as you spend an hour - including much-needed breaks - brushing out the tangles. Even if you're tender-headed.

In conclusion, my greatest accomplishments today, in order: 1. Brushing my hair. 2. Putting in ~4 job applications. 3. Buying a laundry bag. 4. Finishing an RP application. WOW, I'M AWESOME.

My palm has been itching a lot tonight. That means I'm supposed to getting some money, right? Because that would really rock. Or does it mean that I'm turning into a werewolf? That also wouldn't be so bad.

In fact, the best possible scenario I can think of would be to become a millionaire werewolf. I think that might actually be what I want to do when I grow up. So if you ever see a wolf running around carrying a Prada bag, it'll probably be me. Say hi! I promise not to rip out your innards.

Re: the groping breasts is empowering to everyone! nonsense, which is summarized sanely here


Needless to say, the beautiful utopian world where it would be totes okay to just go up to a woman and ask to grab her breasts, because there's no way asking such a thing could make anyone intensely uncomfortable = not for me, thanks!

I've basically been out of sorts since 4:15 PM, so exploring my thoughts on this any deeper would probably be a bad idea. However, contemplating this, I realized that I personally have never had a female friend just randomly touch me inappropriately. But I have had several gay male friends smack me on the butt or even grab my breast - because it was hilarious, I guess? I have no idea. But each time, I remember being intensely angry with myself afterward because I was always initially stunned into a non-reaction.

In conclusion, I suppose it's a good thing that I've not become desensitized to creepiness.

So there's winter, spring, summer, and fall - your standard seasons - but today commenced my least favorite season of all. Dandruff season!

Um, yeah, I've had problem dandruff since around puberty. I once had a sixth grade teacher look at me with my dandruff dotted hair and laughing ask if I'd run into a tree. Um, thanks. That's good for self-esteem! Anyway, it's mostly seasonal, but when it's here, it's pretty bad. Between this and my acne, I'm more or less a very old thirteen-year-old.

And now I must talk about How I Met Your Mother. Spoilers! )

Today would've been my dad's fifty-second birthday. It's kind of weird to think about.

So, in honor of that, I spent a lot of money on myself. Hooray! We went to Target for some groceries and such, and since we're probably going to join the local natatorium next month and take swim classes, we needed bathing suits.

I have not bought a bathing suit since I was in junior high, I think, so, um, yeah. It was kind of painful. The top is okay, but I HATE how my legs look. I have really wide hips and I tend toward being bottom heavy, so it's not a good look for me. I read once that wearing boy shorts doesn't look good on wide-hipped women - just accentuating the broadness - but I'm kind of already considering taking the bottoms back and getting shorts anyway. I suppose I'd rather be extra hippy than show the tops of my thighs. Horrible.

But I also bought (other than groceries) a pair of jeans ($15? Score!) which were very needed because I noticed that a pair of my older ones is starting to fall apart and a black shirt because I need to be buying fewer Threadless tees and more grown-up work tops. (Though two Threadless tees came out today that I desperately want. Life is very difficult.) So that - plus groceries - is how I spent over $100 at Target today. I'm helping the economy!

Unrelatedly, I got Stacey and the Haunted Masquerade in the mail from [livejournal.com profile] imxlennysxmom today! :D Thank you sooooo much - I only have three books left to complete my BSC collection! And I actually haven't read this one before!

up and out

TMI related to the last TMI )

So. Today is my last day of being 23. For whatever reason, I've always felt that the age of 24 sets a person firmly into adulthood. All the final lingering claims to merely being a college-age young adult gone. A fully grown, bill-paying, 9 to 5ing woman. Or as my brother, a lad of 19, has so eloquently put it, a grown-ass adult.

You know, I was never one of those kids who was eager to grown up. I fully appreciated being irresponsible and young and letting my parents pay for all my stuff and take care of me. But, you know, this isn't too bad either.

1. I have this sore in my mouth, between my bottom lip and my gums, and it's driving me insane. It's awkward and it hurts, which of course means I have to tongue it constantly, and unsurprisingly it's going away very slowly. Yes, this is the most pressing matter in my life right now, and I needed to share it with all of you.

A little TMI )

There's a lot I could write about today, but seriously, all I can think about right now I how much I'm jonesing for some Del Taco. The next time I visit California, I may very well end up eating there every single day. MY KINGDOM FOR A DEL CLASSIC CHICKEN BURRITO AND WORLD-FAMOUS CRINKLE CUT FRIES.

Oh, but I can also think about how I woke up this morning and discovered that I have a huge red dot on my eyeball (burst blood vessel? I don't know) and how every time I think about it, I get totally queasy. I mean, I feel faint if I look at my own veins, so bloody eyeball? I'm not dealing with it so well.

Thanks for the gold star, Anonymous!

By the way - I got the results of my ultrasound. Everything is fine. Normal tissue. *thumbs-up*

I will celebrate by painting my toenails green.

Today's doctor visit - slight TMI )

And so I was still upset about that when my boss comes over and goes, "Oh, you know that you don't qualify for paid vacation time until you've been here for six months, right?" I've been here two and a half months. Our vacation is next week.

So I had a panic attack.

Luckily, it turns out that I can use my paid personal days instead, so I can still go to New York, but there were definitely a few minutes where I was all, "Well! Guess I'm not going, then." Not very happy minutes, needless to say. This has been a tough week.
