Well I have settled on a most delightful and befitting Halloween costume for next Sunday! As of recently I have become increasingly interested in English folklore- initiated first by my fondness for the BBC series Robin Hood and then reinforced by the medieval literature unit my mother has been introducing to her 8th graders at school. I'm going to be a knight! I found the outfit at iParty when I went shopping yesterday with my brother and sister. A full suit of armor or real chainmail would have been better but this will do just fine. It's pretty impressive for polyester. Added bonus: The costume is one size fits all, and the model in the picture was a six foot tall man weighing 210 pounds so I think the robes will cover my fat quite nicely.

Speaking of fat, I've lost about 5 pounds in the past week and a half, which I swear I was not trying to do. I haven't been bingeing, so I think that may have something to do with it... but at the same time I haven't really been eating meals either. I'm not starving myself, I'm just not hungry. I know that is not an excuse, but I just thought I'd put it out there. I eat when I'm hungry and that's it. Anyways, its nothing to worry about because I have a good twenty five pounds left until people usually start to think I'm getting too thin.

I don't have to work at Angora today, so that'll be a nice little break. I have Dr. Gordon at 2:00 though, and then Psych class at six. I feel like this night class at BU is less like school and more like a sad weekly reminder that I'm not a real student in college. Although the subject is relatively interesting, general Psychology I mean, the class itself is boring. I tend to space out during lecture and then do the real learning from the textbook once I'm at home and alone in my room. While my mom argues that I should be getting as much out of the presentations as I can, I feel that I am much more of visual learner so reading works better for me. However, as a knight and a lady of honor, I shall respect all teaching methods and learning styles.


  1. If Charro heard you say that you're "just not hungry" she'd "shoot you with a bee bee gun." ha!

    I totally hear ya on that though. Why eat when you're not hungry? I don't see a reason for it.

  2. you should check out lots of cool ideas there.

  3. hahaha part of me thinks it's funny that I'm still pulling this stupid horse crap of restriction when I know that I have a tendency to swing the other way once I get hungry enough... another part of me just hopes I can keep going

    David- oh. my. god. only in my dreams did i think there was a website like this... thanks!
