In which I wear size 8

I bought a pair of shorts at CostCo last night, and dared to get a size 8. They fit. Whoo! Of course, they may be cut a little large (not something I've noticed with Gloria Vanderbilt before, though), but STILL - size 8! Ditto the size 8 Speedo I got to replace the old swimsuit Mom gave me that was WAY too large.

Still, the scale tells me I haven't lost anything this morning, so I'm puzzled.

I have a sore throat. It's been sore since Tuesday night, and I want it to stop. I don't feel bad otherwise, except a little stuffy nose, and I =DO NOT WANT= to be sick again!

I'm half a mind to go to actually fork out and go to the theatre to see The Da Vinci Code just to show that there are Christians out there who understand it's fiction and won't destroy the foundations of the faith just by existing. Ye gods. People!

I have yet to finish the bios for the Johnny Cash overview (full bio for Johnny, spot bios for a) those who influenced him, b) those he's related to - no small list, really - c) peers with similar style, and d) some of them who've been inspired by him). I have at least five more to do, and need to expand a little on some of the ones I've done. It's taking longer than I expected. I probably shouldn't have gone shopping last night, but... shopping! And then, oh, LOST! Yeeks!

Sometimes it's about redistribution. Muscle weighs more than fat, per volume, for example.

Well, yes, I'm aware of that one! When I was gaining the weight, I couldn't have worn a size 8 on a dare (and that includes when I weighed a mere 140 pounds in high school, and was wearing 12).

I am somewhat tempted by a matinee of The Da Vinci Code only because books by crappy writers can sometimes be made into good movies.

It actually looks intriguing, but all the hoopla is making me want to shriek. "It's going to destroy the ENTIRE CHRISTIAN FAITH BY ITS MERE EXISTENCE!!!"

Ye gods, again...

Tonight PBS had a special on his book Angels & Demons, and one woman academic cracked me up because she was affronted that he was making things up -- gasp! In a novel, no less! I have fun spotting the origins of the conspiracy theories. I wish I could get to Everything Is Under Control, but it's packed in the shed. It's great for reading up on various conspiracty theories, though.

Yeah, how dare a novelist make stuff up. The nerve!

I suppose it's all money in the bank for Mr. Brown, though. He appears to be the Salmon Rushdie of the Christian world.

Yeah! Doesn't he know the only proper place to make stuff up is in a memoir?

Congrats on hitting size 8. I'm extremely impressed. And in awe. The way I'm built, I could be skin and bones and I still wouldn't be an 8.

Do. Not. Be. Sick.

It's the exercise. I WEIGH 160 pounds - there is no way in heck I could ever wear a size 8 when I was gaining the weight. I was in a size 12 at 140 pounds. Exercise rocks. I just wish I had the moral fiber to do more than I do. :-D

I'm trying. My throat hurt so much last night I couldn't sleep. I can't figure it, though - I don't have any other symptoms, and I'm fine when I'm not trying to sleep. I wonder if it's the sinus infection come back. If it doesn't go away, it's back to the doc I go.

I have broad hips, so no matter what, they'll never be an 8. I might make it into a size 8 blouse, though my shoulders are pretty broad, too. And do. go. to. the. doctor. Pain that keeps you from sleeping is not to be trifled with.

Yes'm. It's the only flaw with having a nurse for a mother. We had to be practically dying before the word "doctor" was uttered around the house (I'd had bronchial pneumonia for weeks before it was finally diagnosed, and we were informed I was dreadfully contagious). :-) Since I otherwise feel fine, I'm going around with this, "It'll get better. Really." And I'm drinking my Airborne.
