You know what they say about a secret... three men can keep one, if two of them are dead...

I had to tell someone, but these kittens got to me before I got to the blog. So, for now, I'm going to keep this under wraps. But, keep checking back...

(Yes, Chris, I know. I'm annoying you on purpose!)

Seriously, I'm a little too sick today to give the topic/idea/plot/nefarious plan much in the way of justice. (Can a nefarious plan get justice? Wouldn't it get INjustice?) Anyway....

I do actually want to talk about this plan, but it'll have to wait until I'm feeling better. And I have some more time to flesh it out.

In the meanwhile; Weigh in was good yesterday. Down another pound! Woot. Getting close to ditching the 160s forever and ever, amen. (Hello Mr. Travis, where did you come from and why did you earwig me with that song?)

On the other hand, the meeting topic sucketh.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm all about food presentation. The better food looks like it's going to taste, the better it tastes.

However... when Kevin and I moved into this tiny apartment from a 1500 sq foot 3-bedroom place, we had to make some choices. Library, or child's bedroom? Throw these things out, or not be able to walk? Computer desks or... dining room table? My daughter has never sat down with us for a family dinner. We do not OWN a dining room table anymore. Sometimes we all sit around the TV, but mostly it's Darcy at the coffee table, and Thomas and I eat at our computer desks (yes, my keyboard is gross. So sue me.)

All my good china (and I do have some, it's quite lovely) is packed up in boxes. I haven't seen it in four years. We don't have the space in our kitchen to store it. Nor, without a table, would I want to use it.

I feel obscurely guilty about this situation.

Next up: Plates! You shouldn't have red plates. Red apparently makes you more hungry.

Oh, fuck darn. My plates are red. And black.

You shouldn't eat while watching TV. Or playing the computer. Or reading a book. Or or or.

According to last night's meeting, I'm doing everything all wrong.


Look at the pictures in the entry below.

What do you think?

If you get rid of your red and black plates, can I have them? Red's my favorite color. :)

Congrats on the loss, and I hope you feel better real soon!

i hear ya, if i wasn't doing something while eating dinner, i'd be staring at a wall decorated with cheap Klimt prints wishing I didn't live alone.

feel better (and not just because I want to hear the nefarious plan)!
