So this week was workworkwork. I love my job.
We discovered that Stella has a cool reflex. When you stroke her back in just the right place, her coat jacks over to one side and she kicks her back leg out. It's so funny. You can do it forever and she won't even get annoyed. As long as she's getting attention... My dogs are so spoiled.
We had some people over for dinner last night. Billy smoked some chicken and made curried goat. Mmmm! I love having people over. Entertaining guests is cool. I like it. They ended up staying way late, so Billy and I had to rethink our late-night plans. We were going to go see Luciano at Flamingo Cantina--this hole-in-the-wall reggae spot downtown. We both had to be alert and unfoggybrained-ed today so we decided against going. Which sucks, 'cause we haven't gotten to see him live yet. They rarely bring the reggae bands we like (i.e. actual bands from the Caribbean), so when they do...usually in the summer...we try to make every show. It's hard to know these guys are in town and not go check them out...Beres Hammond, The Whalers, Third World, Beenie Man, Buju Banton...hard to miss those shows. We have plans to see a couple of upcoming shows. Plus, I'm sure other great ones are on the way, so plenty to look forward to this summer.
My mom is coming Tuesday! Yay! The rest of my folks are coming on the weekend. Yay!
Hello. My name is Raquel, and I'm an ifcaholic.
I can't wait until Me and You and Everyone We Know comes to Austin. I read about it here and then saw a special about it on IFC. I hope it's here when my girl Terri comes to visit. I can tell we're going to love this movie.
According to the clock, I only have a few minutes to get ready and make it to church on time. I'll probably be late...and I hate walking into church late, so I'll probably pass on it...again.
Since we found out about my hormone imbalance, and I'm on supplements, I'm sure I'll get my ideal weight back. One of the side effects of my particular imbalance is increased appetite and slowed metabolism, so now that I'm balancing things out, I'm sure I'll be back to normal (in more ways than one) in no time. I also learned that a side effect is increased anxiety and am sure it has something to do with my social anxiety deal...I haven't always been this antisocial.
Hopefully I'll reach my goal weight before I become a baby factory. I've been off my weight loss plan for a couple of weeks now, yet I've managed to maintain my weight since I lost it (thanks to the soy-mones maybe?). I'm back on the treadmill today. Wish me luck!
