Tired yet Racing for the Cure
Having a tired and crabby day today. Normally when I'm crabby, I eat crab and feel better. But that's not really true, it's just a fun joke -- maybe it's the joke that makes me feel better. Anyway this evening I decided not to have crab cakes because I'd just had them on monday. Instead I had capers, with mushrooms and chicken and angel-hair pasta.

That made me feel slightly less crabby, but then I went shopping and felt down again. I know it's silly and obsessive, but I'm just so frustrated with my current size. It's not that I'm fat, but I'm heavier than I was and I don't like it. But I hate dieting. Ugh, it's just frustrating me, especially since I'm already worn out and stressed.

It will all get better with time, I know. Just a tired and lonely day. Too much time spent with coworkers, and too little time spent with close friends, by myself, or with cats. Actually, I spent no time at all with cats -- maybe that's the problem! However it was a very productive afternoon at training (Test-Driven Development) though, so that's good. Still...I'm looking forward to coming home friday.

I registered for the Race For the Cure last week, and I'm thinking of doing Photos For the Cure like I did last year. (Last year I emailed a photo-of-your-choice to anybody who donated more than $10 to breast cancer research.) Then I thought, maybe people would prefer something different -- like a bracelet! I know how to make those "friendship bracelets" that were so popular in the late 80's, I could make those maybe.... though come to think of it that would take awhile if tons of people donate.

Then I tried to think of something better, but failed. Obviously doing something expensive defeats the whole purpose of donating, but I really like the idea of giving out a personal thank-you of some sort. Makes it more special, y'know? So I realized: why should I try to guess what people might enjoy, why don't I just ask them? Hence, a poll. It's not very creative, because that's the whole problem. I'm feeling more brain-dead than creative right now.

Poll #483470 Something For the Cure?

What would be a fun thank-you gift to receive?

When you're all set up for donations, I do it again this year.

Custom photo...

We want a photo with you and a pod of North American White-Pine Foos. Not the Suburban Bent-Grass Foo (which travel in murders, not pods). I'm posting anonymously, but I assure you, I can tell the difference.
