I'm looking forward to the weekend coming up. Not much is happening, just game on Sunday, but it should be nice and relaxing compared to the last few. I might get some needed club work actually accomplished! Wouldn't that be sweet!
Good things from yesterday -
1/ I got my new glasses! Got them properly fitted and everything. I think they look snazzy.
2/ Finished Lies of Locke Lamora. Found out a third book in the series is coming out this autumn and we'll finally get to meet Sabetha. I'm very excited about this. (the Locke Lamora books are high fantasy novels following the career of a con man or 'false facer' named Locke Lamora and his friend Jean Tannen set in very richly detailed world)
3/ I actually managed to buy my sister-in-law a present *before* her birthday. Ha!
Good things from today -
1/ Lunch out with co-workers. Its a fairly rare occasion, and the restaurant picked had good food, decent prices, and best of all, a discount for employees of our company. I had a smoked salmon club with a side salad, and it was very good (and extremely filling)
2/ Curves tonight, and a walk, but nothing else 'planned'. So I get to relax and enjoy the evening, no rushing about. This is good!
3/ A friend of mine posted this on Facebook:
"But then, the truth was never really the point. Thin women don’t tell their fat friends ‘You’re not fat’ because they’re confused about the dictionary definition of the word, or their eyes are broken, or they were raised on planets where size 24 is the average for women. They don’t say it because it’s the truth. They say it because fat does not mean just fat in this culture. It can also mean any or all of the following:
Just plain icky
So when they say ‘You’re not fat,’ what they really mean is ‘You’re not a dozen nasty things I associate with the word fat.’ The size of your body is not what’s in question; a tape measure or a mirror could solve that dispute. What’s in question is your goodness, your lovability, your intelligence, your kindness, your attractiveness. And your friends, not surprisingly, are inclined to believe you get high marks in all those categories. Ergo, you couldn’t possibly be fat."

I AM fat. And that has nothing to do with my worth as a person.
