"I'm surprised that you've never been told before"

I figured I should probably update, since there's been a lapse again.

I have applied for and heard nothing about another big batch of jobs - I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a couple of them, but I don't know how realistic that is at this point.

I've been keeping up with the gym as much as possible, and have lost a total of 25lbs since starting, which I'm pretty pleased about, though I'm expecting the Dreaded Plateau any time now - we'll see how it goes. Having lost 25 pounds means I have 42ish left to lose, but I'm feeling more and more like I can do it. I mean, I've come this far, right?

I had to spend a fortune today on a bunch of unrelated things - I had run out of training sessions, so I got more, then I had to go to the eye doctor which I had to pay for (being uninsured), and I also ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses while there, so I had to pay for those, THEN the Schwan's guy turned up and of course, again, Mom wasn't home (is she ever when he comes by?), so I had to try and figure out what we needed and pay for THAT, then there was the underwear, the laptop battery, the room for Whitney's wedding next's like things never end ): Oh, well.

The HDD for my XBox finally arrived today, so I've managed to move things around the way I want them, BUT I have yet to call customer support and get them to move my account to the US so I can link up viable payment details and be able to buy games etc (and not have the prices listed in pounds sterling on the Marketplace). I'll probably try to do that tomorrow - I just REALLY don't think it's wise of them to want me to make a new account, lose my achievements etc - basically start from scratch - if they also want to retain me as a Marketplace customer. Whose idea was it to only allow migration to/from Russia, Chile, Hungary, etc? What sort of sense does that make?

In other news, my sister suggested to me that, if nothing else, I plan to go to New Orleans for Halloween, which sounds like a pretty great idea to me. I'm planning to run it by my friends here,and see if either/both of them would be interested in coming, but I think it'd be pretty cool. And if I have a job by then that I can't skip out on, well, all the better then, I guess, since it means I won't be twiddling my thumbs in frustration for the 3rd year running. Or is it 4th? I've lost track.

I feel like this is really mopey again, and I didn't mean that - I'm just feeling really faily recently, so I guess it's hard to keep out of the conversation. Sorry! I'll stop now. On the recommendation that if you don't already drop acid or watch Adventure Time, you probably should (watch Adventure Time - it's a lot cheaper than acid). Also recomended: Regular Show (yes Kathlyn I know you told me about Regular Show a bazillion years ago, but I forgot/thought it sounded weird, but then my brother showed it to me last week).

I also started rewatching Wonder Falls again, and it has not helped me clear up any of my thinking. (Damn you Gretchen Speck! Why is it so easy for you to resolve your TV-version of my problems?) But I still love it and desperately wish it had gotten more seasons. Even just one more, like Pushing Daisies. I miss it, and I saw it maybe twice when it was on.
