Monday's child is full of it.

crazy weekend.
crazy Monday.

weighed in on Sunday and, while Husband and i ate ALL THE SAME DAMN CRAP, he was kind enough to lose TWO FLIPPING POUNDS whilst i GAINED a stinking 4/10ths of a pound.

that ain't right.

hence, why when i got home tonight, i made a boatload of Garden Veggie Soup. zero points, dontcha know.

i'll show you, bloody scale.

yesterday, we went to a Super, er....Big Game party, and while he had a beer and various other goodies, i, on the other hand, drank diet Coke, ate a buttload of veggies and one small sammich. at the very end of the party, i caved and ate 6 BBQ chips.

but daaaaaaamn. they were gooooooooood.

we also had a substitute leader at our meeting. i know the meetings are good for us, but man, they are dry.

as in bor-ring.

but this one did catch my attention when she mentions making a 2 point margarita.

two point margarita?! i'm all ears.

make Crystal Light lemonade. add fresh lime juice to taste. add ice to your cup and add 2oz (one shot) of tequila.

there you go. a two point margarita.


on to other things. it's been forever since i've done a meme. while some of you may be rejoicing, i know others freaking do not care about my WW trials and whining.

for you - here we go. rub-a-dub-dub...stole this from Tug.

(hmmm. creative, no?)

1. If your doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say?
well, i'd probably be in ER, because i would've passed out from shock. then been running out to get EVERYTHING I COULD IN THE MATERNITY SECTION.

2. Do you trust all of your friends?
my 'on hand' friends - absolutely. (the ones you can count on hand for anything...the ones that would go through the gates of hell to bring you some diet Coke.)

3. Would you move to another state or country to be with the one you love?
hey - i gave up a freaking Disneyland annual pass for this guy. as Kristie will vouch - that, my friends, is love.

4. Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
99 44/100% of the time. some things i still don't get. and likely never will.

5. Can you make a dollar in change right now?
sure. probably a couple of dollars worth of change.

6. Which one of your friends do you think would make the best doctor?
LOL - because of their bedside manner or because they would tell it like it is? because i really don't want to know which one is best at rectal thermometers.

7. Are you afraid of falling in love?
nope, but i'm afraid sometimes of losing it.

what happened to #8?

9. Is there someone who pops into your mind at random times?
why yes! just today, i passed a street on the way to work called Mungall. i then remembered a girl i went to elementary school with named Sharon Mungall. great. i can remember a chick from elementary school, but can't tell you what i had for dinner on Saturday.

10. What’s your most favorite scar?
my back scar. because it doesn't hurt back there any more. and because i'm still mad at myself that i didn't think of Kristie's idea of drawing a Christmas tree on the scar right after my surgery, taking a picture and using it for our Christmas cards. stupid, stupid, stupid!

11. When was the last time you flew in a plane?
my last trip to Reno...sigh...

12. What did the last text message you sent say?
i was gloating to my best male friend (that i don't sleep with) that i was at Disneyland and he wasn't. come to think of it, i gloated to Kristie as well...hmmm..

13. What features do you find most attractive in the preferred sex?
humor. but hands is what i notice first.

14. Fill in the blank. I love ________.…
rock & roll. put another dime in the jukebox baby.

15. What is a goal you would like to accomplish in the near future?
too many. i actually started a 'bucket list' the other day. i'm exhausted just reading it, but that's a post for another day.

16. If you were to wake up from being in a coma for an extended time who would you call?
like i'd remember their phone numbers.

17. How many kids do you want to have?
i always wanted two. but as the whole infertility thing raised its ugly head, i would've been happy with one.

18. Would you make a good parent?
i think so...i would've been the 'crazy mommy,' embarassing the crap outta my kid.

19. Where was your favorite picture taken?
i am not a fan of any photos my mug is in. right now, my favorite photos are of Dean and Erin at my last Reno trip. yum.

20. What’s your middle name? Lynn

21. Honestly, what’s on your mind right now?
please, Lord, don't let tomorrow be as crappy as today.

22. If you could go back in time and change something, what would it be?
the whole baby thing. 'nuff said.

23. Who was or will be the maid of honor/ best man in your wedding?
Kristie. after all, she's one of my bestest ever friends and she's responsible (along with her mom) for Brendan & myself. she might as well be a witness.

my work clothes. soon to be jammies.

the latest jeans (they call 'em 'premium') from Target. leg's not too wide, and they bloody sit at my waist! it's a miracle!!

the ones that clean up after themselves. but right now, it would be cats.

32. Ever had a bar fight?
naaah. i was the chicken under the table or running like heck out the door.

Kristie & Maureen. Brendan's in there, too, but let's face it, girls - our girlfriends sometimes know more than guys do. and remember it, too.

34. Shoe size? 9 1/2

35. Do you wear contact lenses or glasses?
um, that would be trifocals. never wanted contacts, i hate things in my eyes.

Yeah, I hate that Jason can give up his nightly snack for two weeks and lose 10 lbs, while I've been slaving away at this same weight for months!

Tug said...

Baha Men - new to me, I LIKE!

Don't ever compare with a man when losing weight...seriously. It's not a 'fair' comparison - you're doing AWESOME. Let me know about that margarita, k?

Why did both people that copied this from me lose #8? I have to go back & check mine now - LOL.

Hwy, that meme was fun to read! I had to keep stopping and scroll up to see who was singing... the variety is astounding. Donny Osmond? neato.

Those pics of Disney brought back memories, we went when I was 7 and my sister was 9 (they put us on a plane in in VA in matching T's and said "your big sister will meet you in Florida!"... ah, those were the days)...
