Tonight's carne asada is marinating. I worked out for about an hour. There's a pot of tea brewing. I've got the rest of the day to do nothing.

So I'm going to go back upstairs, find my glasses, make some lunch (ravioli with meatballs and sauce? just meatballs and sauce?), and play something on the PS3.

I took this picture yesterday. This was the 3rd time in a week that I'd gone into the bathroom and discovered that some fucking moron couldn't figure out how to work the paper towel dispenser (which has a button/lever that needs to be pushed in to get the towel to come out), and instead just opened the entire thing and made a fucking mess of everything.

In my frustration, I went back into the pharmacy and asked for "the goddamned marker so I can write a big fucking note on the dispenser so idiots can dry their goddamn hands". I was expecting a fight, but my boss just handed me the marker and said "I don't know, do you think the purple will show up on the plastic?"

One of my patients directed me to this article today, a super-interesting look into why keeping weight of can be so difficult for people. 
Contestants lost hundreds of pounds during Season 8, but gained them back. A study of their struggles helps explain why so many people fail to keep off the weight they lose.

+Sam Gregory I think it'll take a lot more research and studying people who've lost amounts like that before they'll know for certain what's happening with it and how it works. Then it'll just be a matter of time before they come out with some sort of supplement for it.

However, it does show that you need to make lifestyle changes to keep the weight off. I've had several friends who've lost weight using various surgeries over the years, and all but one of them regained nearly all their weight because they didn't change their lifestyles and/or adapted to their smaller stomachs. I'd love to see The Biggest Loser do a "where are they now?" special and bring everyone back to talk about their post-show experience; anyone can lose weight when they have a team of personal trainers pushing them to their limit for 8 hours a day, dietitians, nutritionists, and assorted medical professionals, but keeping it off when all the pros leave is a whole other story.

Happy Thursday. I'm sitting around in my rammy-jammies, drinking a coffee, eating a bow of cereal, and alt-tabbing my way through g+, Reddit, and Pinterest this morning. I've got some meat defrosting, and I'm off for the next 5 days. I go back to work on Tuesday, maybe for a full shift, maybe for just some afternoon corporate training, then a full shift on Wednesday, and then I've got another 4 days off.

So... why do I have all this time off? Because it seems like I'm one of the only people in the pharmacy who makes and effort to learn how to do things like vendor returns and supply ordering, and as a result, I feel like I can't take my vacation days unless I have a damned good reason to have time off. There's not enough techs to cover shifts when someone calls out, let alone vacation days, so I end up banking everything until the end of my "year", and then taking them all at once when the pharmacy students finish their school year and start doing their internships with one of the other pharmacies in our district and there's more people who can take my shift.

It's not cool.

But... it's nice to have a shitload of time off. I was getting to the point where I really needed it. In past years, I've used the time to craft like crazy, but since I haven't been doing much crafting lately it'll be a week or so with the cats, the couch, and the PS3.

Sanity/decompression days are a crucial part of self care. :)

I'm on Day 2 of mini vacation. Day 3 is Thursday and there's a chance Day 4 could be Friday.

I still got dressed and did my face so I could feel human.

I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon drinking me banana protein smoothy (which is really tasty, btw) and walking around my house wearing my vintage furs. My eclectic aunt is moving and cleaning out closets. I left her house with a spear gun, a blow gun, several fur stoles, a fur coat, a tin of canned rattlesnake that is a bit swollen, a few old books, a vicious looking animal trap, and an expensive eye-shadow palette that she's never used.

Story
Tagline
I do stuff. I make stuff. I run. I lift. I swear. I fucking love makeup and hair dye.
Introduction
I'm what my grandmother called "the artsy-fartsy type."  I make custom My Little Ponies.  I also crochet, I cut glass, and I do a lot of origami.  It keeps my hands busy.

I'm a pharmacy technician, a runner, a blogger, and a wanna-be photographer.  I play the ukulele quite badly.

I have weird hair.
Bragging rights
I have three very strange phrases tattooed on my body. Two of them are in Latin.

If you're looking for anything other than vintage stuff and can buy it elsewhere, do so and save your money. Prices are generally higher than you'll find at the Target on the other side of the mall.
