Gee, Jenn, how would you like to spend your Sunday? Oh I don't know, cleaning up cat puke sounds fun!

I can't believe I posted a personal ad. I also can't believe that I have already (since yesterday) gotten two responses. Huh. And without a picture.

So of course, I decided I needed to put up a photo of myself, since my repliers (repliees? respondents?) actually had pics of themselves to offer. Taking (good) pictures of yourself without a tripod is an interesting feat. And humbling. I actually went and put powder on my face because of the awful shine. Gak! Those who know me personally know I do not wear makeup as a rule.

So here I am in my apartment, finding suitable backdrops and smiling cheesily at the camera. I also found out that I look much more attractive if I use my teeth when I smile. I don't usually flash the pearls because I have a gap on one side. The tooth is there, but it is pushed back, like someone took their finger and shoved it behind the flanking teeth. Oh well, makes me unique (and wish for orthodontia).

What type of Mary Sue are you?

Why, oh why, do the underwear companies not make bikini underwear suitable for us larger folks? You may not have noticed, but any underwear larger than a size 6 is not available in a variety of styles. And why are the sizes so funky? Can women's clothing be more clearly sized, fer cryin' out loud?! What the hell does a single-digit number have to do with my hip size?! And why can't I buy underwear that only covers what I consider the "essential parts", which does not include my belly button? I don't like elastic around my waist, it irritates my skin. Hence, the desire for bikinis or, when I can find them, "hipsters", aka hip-hugger underwear. Sheesh. Yet another conspiracy against fat people. Hmpf.

Visited my family in Nebraska this last weekend for a post-holiday-thing. One of these visits I'm going to find something else to do rather than be shuffled around to various relatives, sit around watching TV, and listen to complaints about the other family members from my family members. Not that it is my family's fault, I can't think of anything to do either.

Lincoln has gotten more and more run-down. I don't remember it looking so barren. Of course, I always seem to visit in the Winter, so that could be the problem.

Happy New Year! S novym godom!

So I was sitting at my computer, eating leftover malt-o-meal (yum!) and deciding what to do with my day. Aha! I shall start another project that will never be completed! Of course, a blog, by definition, is not something that is ever complete, so I have been caught in a logic circle. Curses!

Anyway, today marks the start of a full year of being single (got officially divorced in Nov 2002) and I hope that it will be a much happier year than 2002 was. I'm making plans for Library School and enjoying living on my own. I have few bills and a regular work schedule, so that I could become much more socially active, that is, if I wanted to.

Time to go put on a sweatshirt, since I forgot to turn up the thermostat. It's kinda like the frog-in-boiling-water example: you get cold veerrrry slowly and freeze to death without noticing. Luckily, I have higher brain functions than most amphibians.

Do svidania for now....
