won’t shatter me

I have a stomach for other people not stomaching me. Or at least I’m working on it.

– Amy Poehler

Yeah, fuck ’em. 🙂

The Jen Kirkman’s comedy special was pretty good. I haven’t watched a comedian do stand up in forever (see last entry). Basically her take is like my take:

  • Society is stupid.
  • Weddings are stupid.
  • Child-free people: please stop saying how much you LOVE kids. It sounds soooooo fake…even if it is true.
  • She didn’t have kids because she didn’t want to ruin her life. Precisely.
  • Who cares if someone wants to marry their pet? AMEN. Um, not that I want to marry my dog.

The only thing I haven’t said is the stuff about sex. lol. She kind of goes on and on about sex and masterbating. Two things I know nothing about nor do I care about. But it didn’t ruin the show for me at all. That is how good she is. It wasn’t great but definitely worth watching. You’ll laugh.


I’m getting my stuff organized into piles. I have decided not to sell any clothes on eBay. I’m donating most of the clothes to two different places: the LGBT thrift store and  The Junior League. And the remainder of the clothes I will take to a consignment shop. Consignment shops are so picky. They only want the name brand stuff in pristine condition. I don’t know how many things I will have for them.

I really hope I make some money off the items I’m taking to the shop. I’ve never done it before. Of course the place I think will take my clothes is called “snooty” on Yelp. haha. I don’t need that kind of attitude but my clothes are not in season (the fashion season) so they are the only ones who might take my clothes. I have a variety so I’m sure they will be interested in something. Oh god, I just saw on their website that the owner described her taste as “picky”. LOL. I do have high end stuff (Yves Saint Laurent etc.) so I’m not worried about that. I’m just worried about whether the stuff is cool enough for lack of a better phrase.



I brought a CD. An actual physical CD. I think it has been a year or two since I last brought a CD. Since I’m paying Spotify $120 a year (worth it), I don’t spend much on music anymore. I ordered Tori Kelly‘s CD from Amazon. Of course I already know I love it cause I heard the whole thing on Spotify. I like buying music from Amazon because when you order the physical CD, you get to download it right then for no additional cost. I just wanted to hold the CD booklet in my hands because I love her so much. She is an underdog. She got signed at 12 and it took her 10 years to be able to release a full album. I’m glad it went to #1.


I wrote down my menu for life after Nutrisystem. I have to tweak it more but I will post it here when I’m done. Breakfast was easy. I’m pretty much eating what I used to eat (just one egg instead of two and I’m adding a delicious carb. yes!). Dinner is also almost the exact same. I’m adding broccoli to it. The hardest was figuring out dessert. I still don’t have a perfect substitute for it. Lunch is probably going to be the most expensive. Pre-Nustrisystem,  I didn’t eat lunch so I kind of resent having to buy food for it. But eating on my own will be cheaper than NS. So that’s a win.

I know I have said this before but I’m so glad I did NS. Best decision ever. I never knew I could eat 6 small meals a day. I was reading books trying to figure out how this healthy eating thing worked and I couldn’t get it. I just gave up. I thought I had to learn how to cook and that is not a solution for me. Trust me. I ‘cook’ baked chicken and I boil eggs. That’s about it. That is all I’ll be doing once NS is over. I should run out of all my NS food in mid-September…if I don’t decide to sell another box.


I might watch the women play soccer tonight if it doesn’t interfere too much with Big Brother. 😉  I’m not that excited because I feel like they are going to win anyway so why watch? I don’t really care. If they lose or if it is a good game, I’m going to wish I would’ve watched. I will probably watch. I can’t help it. I love sports.

I’m going to take a nap. I have a webiner to attend in two hours. I get 1 CEU for it so I can’t miss it. Adios.
