No progress on the M issue yet... Our work schedules clash a bit, so I prob won't get a chance to talk to him until the weekend.
More progress in the anti-ED movement. (That being said, I feel the need to apologize again if I'm not commenting on your blog when you've commented on mine. I'm not ignoring you, I promise; I just need to to avoid triggering posts. Self preservation and whatnot.) It's a daily struggle, but I'm doing pretty well, I think. It helps that I do really LOVE food. I like trying new foods and experimenting with making new foods. I'm still counting calories, but not in order to restrict them; it's more because I have lost the ability to know how much I should be eating on a day to day basis and I don't want to unknowingly start consuming 4,000 calories a day. I figure I'll ween myself off of the calorie-counting as I re-learn how to feed myself properly.
Keeping the ::omgI'mtoofattolive:: anxiety at bay is tough, but I'm starting to like my body again. One good thing about the weight I've put back on over the last couple months--my boobs are back! The ED robbed me of my delicious rack, but it's now starting to come back into its former glory. And I'm starting to remember how much I loved having an actual figure.

Matthew nominated me to answer some fun questions (thanks, guy!!), so here goes:
Question One- Sadly you're forced into competing in a fight with famous boxing legend Mike Tyson in his prime. Before fighting him in the ring however you're allowed to pick three other bloggers who would come out individually to fight Mike before you had to (you know, with the intention of weakening him or beating him so you'll have an easy fight or won't have to.) Who do you pick to fight Mike?
Well now, that is a dilly of a pickle. Sadly, I don't think I could live with myself if I sent someone else into danger in my place, so I'm afraid I'm just going to have to take my chances and fight him. I might propose, since he clearly has the best chance of winning a fight in a boxing ring, that we compete against each other in a different sport?
I might not win that one either, but sure at least I'll have fun while I'm being slaughtered.
Question Two- What super power would you pick? The ability to read minds, to teleport to anywhere you want to three times a day, to see everything you touch turn into gold, or to turn into a cockroach on a whim (that's not really a power though but still!).
The cockroach power would actually be quite useful, but I'm going to have to go with teleportation. I've no desire to see the inside of anyone's mind (my own is quite enough thanks), and gold kind of clashes with my skin tone. But teleportation would not only allow me to never set foot in an airplane ever again, it would ensure that I remain in 1st place in the ongoing competition between myself and my siblings (and a few cousins) in which we attempt to frighten the living daylights out of each other with stealth.
Question Three- Some record company bigwig phones you up and orders you to feature with any musician alive or dead in their next album. Which musician do you pick?
Marilyn Manson, without question. I've always wanted to be in one of those videos.
Question Four- Can you draw? If so draw me however you interpret me, it's fine if you can't!
Question Five- What would you rather be? A bar or a car? (My best friend Ryan once asked this question during "open mic" night at a bar and the confused faces made back at him were hilarious.)
I'll have to go with car, as bars tend have more of a chance of being filled with skanks, idiots, and vomit. But what kind of car? So many choices!!
I tried to think of a good story, but me mind is a blank. So instead, here is something almost as fun.......
ONE of the following is NOT true:
- I lost my virginity at age 14.
- I once crashed into a parked car and fled. it wasn't a bad crash, but still...
- I have never told either of my parents that I hate them.
- My favourite meat is wild boar, second favourite are game birds.
- I have participated in consensual incest, and it was within the first 4 degrees of kindred.
- I adore Phil Collins, Abba, and Britney Spears, and have all of Brit's albums on my ipod.
- I started working (as in for money, and not doing things for my parents) at age 12.
- I have twice worked as a bookkeeper for vitamin* dealers.
- One of my close friends used to kill animals for fun, and leave the bodies on his enemies' doorsteps.
- I have peed in my sister's shampoo because she pissed me off.
- I do not own any pornography.
- My mother used to bring me to the bar with her when she couldn't get a babysitter, and leave me to sleep on a bench in the corner.
- I have been a serious insomniac since age 12.
I'll let y'all guess which one is the lie, because I'm never telling. :)
And now I need to come up with six more questions, and six people to answer them.
First, the victims:
- Honor Regzig
Question the First: Who is your daddy, and what does he do?
(Bonus points if you know what movie that's from.)
Question the Second: What was your favourite band/musician when you were 15?
Question the Third: You're on a crowded train and the person sitting next you has REALLY BAD gas. The only other seat available in your car is next to a mother and her screaming child. What do you do?
Question the Fourth: You're running late for your best friend's wedding, and you're in the bridal party. (Or you're one of the groomsmen, if you're a dude). While you're flooring it down the highway to get to the church, you see your arch nemesis pulled over on the shoulder--their car is on fire, and they're struggling to get their 2-year-old and their dog out of the back seat, but they can't seem to get the door open. There's no one else on the road. What do you do?
Question the Fifth: Why is a raven like a writing desk?
And finally, Question the Sixth: Are you prepared to give your life for Gondor?
