Working on a very long comic for Tuesday that chronicles my birthday. For now, enjoy this awesome video my friends, Beki and Deric made in honour of my birf.

Birthday Mustache Dreamin'


If awesome friends are a sign of richness, this weekend has taught me I am the richest mofo in the world.

If you want your own spiffy mustache to rock, here is a link to the comic in question.

I checked my RealAge account and have the following to do list.

1.Floss daily.
To prevent infections and promote healthy teeth.

2.Get a dog.

Apparently this has been a stressful year for me and a dog would lower my blood pressure.

3.Do more cardio.
Because I am a fat ass.

4.Eat carbs.
I've recently developed a fear of grain based carbs. I know, it's weird, and my diet is reflecting the weirdness.

Really, that is the to do list. (Aside from my notes in italics.) Point numero dos is the most amusing to me.

...But wasn't paying attention to when warned.

1. How stressed out and exhausted I would be.

2. How emotionally raw I would be.

3. How I would lose my appetite. (I think my last real meal was on Monday.)

4. How my menses would start earlier and last longer and be harder. (I've been throwing up a bit. It's that hard.)

5. How I would worry about losing the groom or being ditched at the chuppah.

6. How I would question whether or not I was good enough for the groom.

7. How worried I would be about people not having fun at the wedding.

As of 10:00am EST Friday, February 29, 2008, my mobile phone of three years has died.

I hope it is just the battery. I don't want to deal with getting a new telephone. (It's the original battery from the original purchase three years ago. It had become a piss poor excuse of a battery anyway. So here is to crossing our fingers for that scenario and not an entirely dead phone.)

Sigh. In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal. I hate mobile phones anyway, but if ever there was a poor time for mine to die, eight days before my wedding would be that time.

If you really need me, leave a comment here. If you know me in brick and mortar life as opposed to the binary world alone, email my main account.

I will be tethered to the computer doing wedding chores anyway for the rest of the day.

My right tympanic membrane (eardrum) has retracted into my malleus (no cool layman's term for malleus.).

The doctor informed me that this was caught a week before infection and another exploding eardrum. Yippy! Skippy!

I am now on MethyIPREDNISolone for the next five days to clear up what's going on in my ear and take away my supersonic hearing.

C'est la vie, we can't all be Heroes!

I am totally avoiding wedding chores right now. One, it's about 50 degrees inside the apartment.It's so cold it actually hurts to wear my engagement ring. Two, I really have no second reason.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
1998: I was working at Best Buy, playing the violin, working as a stage hand at the Polk Theatre, and preparing to go away for college.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Bitching to Nintendo about the Wii, and my status as the sole DS player in North America.

Five snacks you enjoy?
1. Blueberry pineapple smoothies
2. Clementines
3. Cupcakes, although they aren't a snack, but a gift from G-d.
4. hummus and pita chips
5. Granny Smith apples and peanut butter

Remember Hazel, the injured butterfly that Jonathan and I were taking care of hospice style?

Her right wing came off while she was flexing her wings the other day. Just flex, flex, plop. It was rather nasty.

She wasn't looking good, although the fact that she has been with us for over a week and a half when the average healthy butterfly tends to live a week, two tops, shows that she lived a long butterfly life.

This afternoon, at one in the afternoon, I had to euthanize a butterfly.

(How does one euthanize a butterfly you might ask? Well, by placing them in the freezer, allowing their systems to shut down. I have been told this isn't a painful process.)

I spent from one until three crying. I feel rather pathetic. It was for the best, she was very badly hurt and in pain and I was just being selfish by wanting to have more time with her.

Hazel Methuselah, I will miss how you got cranky if you didn't have a good spot on the table to watch Degrassi: Next Generation.
I will miss your preference for Jonathan to feed you honey water.
It was a surreal week and a half. You shall be missed.
G-d speed, little dude.

(Three mothers with jog strollers push their children around Lake Ella. I follow since the path is my way home.)

Mommy #1: (Nods towards Muscovy ducks and their ducklings) It seems like they are just breeding more and more.

Mommy #2: Yeah, people keep feeding them and they keep breeding, it's really bad the impact those ducks have on the environment.

Me: Well, humans keep breeding and their impact on the environment is far more detrimental.

(pause as the mothers slow down and turn to look at me.)

Me: What?


A couple of years ago, I learned about a web comic called Something Positive based on my friend, Shaun's comment that my personality was like the Something Positive character, Aubrey.

I have never felt more like a strip from Something Positive until that moment on Lake Ella this morning.

Five months until the wedding!

I know most of you are looking at that and thinking:



"five months, so what?"


The sad thing is, I want to say that I am astounded by how little time there is between now and the wedding because we still need to:

1. Get a photographer. (Jonathan wants this photographed, I could give a rat's ass.)

2. Organize the groomsmen with the ordering of their tuxedo/tux kilt.

3. Finalize the guest list and print and mail invitations.

4. Find a caterer.

5. Make the programs.

But honestly, the only thing I am panicked about is being a fat bride. That's it.


I don't know if that is sad because all I care about is my weight or a good thing that I can multitask so well and view all the rest as small potatoes.
