omg i feel like crap
Yesterday,I had to get up at 4 to be at a briefing for 6. That wasn't so bad, but I was pretty tired by the end of the day.

So last night, I succumbed to peer pressure and went out to dinner with a bunch of people I work with. That was great, we went to this Brazilian place in Philadelphia called Fogo de Chão. It's pretty much an all-you-can-eat meat fest, but they have some great sides too (fried bananas FTW!). I did pretty well, though; I ate till I was full, but not uncomfortable. I paid too much for what I ate, but I still had a small salad and ate a bit of almost everything I wanted. I
wanted
chocolate mousse cake, but not enough to eat that much fat and sugar. Besides, I had angel food cake and raspberries at home... or ricotta cheese with Splenda and raspberry extract... or No Pudge fat-free brownie mix (I hate the name, but it tastes really good!). So that was fun. I would have been happy to stop there and get a good night's sleep.

But then we got back to the apartment complex, and a few people wanted to keep partying. So rather than leave my friend Jen without chick support, I went along. I did have fun (darkwolfie would have been so proud of my pool game, and I was getting the hang of darts, too), but jeez... last call was at 2, and the bar closed at 2:30, and they had to throw us out. The entire time, they were smoking cigars. I didn't get to bed till after 3, because when I got back up to my (blessedly quiet, blessedly smoke-free) apartment, I still had to send darkwolfie directions to my apartment, since he's coming down and staying tonight on the way to Anthrocon.

I only slept for about 8 hours, because I want to be able to sleep tonight, since I have to get up at 5 to get to the range for 7. My throat is really raw, and I feel like shit. I gave up the gym last night to go out, because I thought I'd be able to go today, and now because I went out, I don't feel up to the gym, and I'm annoyed by that. I'm afraid I'm going to be sick this week, and I can't afford that. There's too much to do, and too few people to do it.

Plus, I'm watching Project Runway, and it makes me want to sew something. I won't have anything new for Pennsic, I don't think... Though I'm taking a pass the 14th through the 17th, I think, and I could go to JoMar and get fabric, then cut and assemble a new apron at the craft shop on post, and finish it by hand at home. That could be fun! I've been itching to do some handwork.

I think I'm going to have a bowl of cereal.

As is No Pudge chocolate raspberry, made with vanilla yogurt! I'll have to try your version, too.

Ever had fat-free ricotta with a couple of packets of Splenda and some flavor extract? Nummy.

Sugar, then. Give it a whirl; it's tasty.
