That moment when, after traveling for hours, you know you've finally reached your destination is a lot more exciting when I've departed from Boston.

Less than two weeks until the DR!

Its my birthday this weekend and I'm trying to figure out what to get. I'm thinking of getting kitchen ware. I need to start fresh. Get rid of what I've got and start with a few things that way I don't get the mess I've currently got going. It will cost 104.23 to get what I want for the kitchen, plus a wood cabinet for the bathroom to replace the plastic crap I've currently got going.

I'm pleased. And my mom and dad are going to help me get my mom's old couch to my house! YAY!

Ew! I just found out that we have class next Wednesday! What the eff is up with that?!

So, we only have one day off from classes, basically. Our "fall break" was the same thing. I know it's stupid, but this is the point in the semester at which I could really, really use just one or two more days I have so much crap to do, and so little time!

There is an all you can eat Mongolian BBQ place by my work. I went in there last week for the first time. It was dead and I've never been somewhere like this so I was totally lost. I didn't know what to do and how to do it. The language barrier made it very difficult for the employees to explain what to do so I fumbled through it. As soon as I'm "creating" the sauce out of various different containers of liquids, a group of girls come in and...

all of a sudden its clear that I was doing it ALL WRONG.

In embarassment I try to rectify the situation post haste. I hang my head in shame while the cook makes my food and I run out of there almost hoping the food sucks so that I dont' have to worry about wanting to go back.

No such luck. Food was delicious. I went back yesterday. I think I did better this time, but I changed the "sauce" I made and I like the last one better. I've got a little left over in the kitchen and I think I'm about to finish it off. Mmmmm....... Mongolian BBQ.....

For the love of Gawd would someone please come fix this a**hole equipment alarm in the back room so I do not have to run back and forth, every 5 min, to turn it off. I have probably lost 10 lbs today.

This alarm is the decibel of dolphins crying.

Good thing I started it an hour ago.

I love small businesses, and yet sometimes I hate them.

I have tried to pay for something for something several times over the past month now, but the only person who is in charge of this particular thing hasn't been there and nobody else was sure enough to take my payment.

So yesterday, she is finally there and tells me as soon as *I* pay she can put the order in. As no one has been able to tell me the amount, I didn't have enough money. I won't until Thursday. Ugh.

I decided to start my Thanksgiving shopping today, and I think I got it all in one shot - other than the stuff I'll remember and need to send Mr Man out the day before in an emergency.

At least I bought my food bank donation bag. Last year I called Mr Man frantic BC I'd forgotten and I needed him to pick one up the night before Thanksgiving.

Oh and with all the cooking going on in my head I have no desire to cook this week.

Why is that always so easy to do? We have 12 or 13 people coming over and we will end up cooking enough food for 35.

It's turkey madness.

So I go out to run a few errands today, and happen to stop at the local thrift store. (I've had a few adventures there in the past, as old posts will reveal.)

Today they've got a half off sale going, so I buy "bedroom manager" bed lifts for $2.50. "Oh boy!" I think. "I can raise my bed higher for the dogs to scuttle under, and the height is good for my allergies."

I get home, feed the hounds, and decide to spend "a few minutes" installing the "managers." I've done this before, and it's not hard.

Forty minutes and a total hissy fit involving loud cursing, a howling yell or two, and four quaking pit bulls later, I decide to give up. I toss the managers and the box out of the bedroom in a tizzy, which is when I see the warning: "Remove casters from frame before installing. Product will not work with casters in place."

Didn't I see this on an episode Nip Tuck? Lol
That's the Human Barbie. Lots of people aren't sure she's real. She does YT vids. There's another similar woman out there too.
Yes, it is. "The Ukraine model". It is funny when you read articles about her. One group claims she has had no face work done, you can watch her youtube video's of her with no makeup on for proof. And others show pictures of what is supposedly her before face work, and after. And then some say she does not exist at all. It is a very odd situation all together.

I have seen pictures of other women who have strived to look like Barbie and had ribs removed and tons of work to match every 'Barbie' specification they can. It's truly disturbing and sad BDD. I can't believe doctors do some of these procedures, but hey... Money talks.

*and there was an episode of Nip Tuck where a female wanted her nipples removed so she could complete her Barbie transformation. That show was insane, but pretty right on when it comes to extremes that people go to.

I am so ready to go home. The last few hours of work have been wild.

SCORE!! I got my turkey! I also went grocery shopping hungry AND at a nicer store than my regular store, recipe for disaster, y'all. Soooo many things came home with me that weren't on my list.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
