    Tell me about it. I guarantee you that once you see him as the brooding Mr. Darcy your perception on the character will change. No one compares to him in that role IMO. Sense and Sensibility is on at the end of the week - I think Friday night?

    I am off work right now and have made a decision. If I am still off on the Easter weekend I am going to have a Jane Austen marathon. I need to hang out with my mom's sweet Little Miss. Lucy as everyone will be gone, so I will be alternating between there and here. I am going to buy a tub (yes, I mean tub) of my new favourite find: Heluva Good french onion dip, a couple bags of rippled chips, a few two litre bottles of Diet Coke and order in a pizza (either Greek or green olive and tomato). Then I will make myself cozy on the couch with my comfort food and watch Emma, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. I will likely need two nights to get through them so add Japanese takeout to the list.

    I need to send my husband away and do the same (although without those intestinal wrecks you listed, I rarely drink soda anymore). Then perhaps I'll spend some time actually reading those fine novels instead of just watching them. :)

    I don't eat it all the time. I usually eat quite healthy which is why I will be looking forward to the "comfort" weekend. Pizza one night and sushi (*cough* umm, healthy) the other with a chip 'n dip app, all washed down with some ice cold D.C. LOL. I will most likely be eating salads and pasta through the week so there is a very good chance I will feel absolutely no guilt over it. Besides, I could have added cheesecake for dessert, but didn't want to come off as piggish. :shock:

    I love cheesecake.

    And cookie dough ice cream.

    Just throw on another set of intervals, and tack on an extra 1/2 hour of groundie drilling, and you are even with the house.

    Jolly, my husband no watch baseball, but would probably sit through all the X men movies again. ;)

    CC, I'm going to get you off diet Coke before I shuffle off this blue marble. That stuff is no good. Drink homemade cold brewed green tea with honey or agave instead. Or Blood Orange juice. Or something. ;)

    intervals are running as fast you can then jogging.

    groundie drilling is hitting from the baseline hard.

    these two things burn off your piggish weekend.

    I am going to make an honest effort to cut it back. I drink juices, water and milk, but the problem is I am always drinking. My first step is to cut out the Diet Coke Double Gulps from 7-11. Baby steps?

    Thanks Mav. No wonder I was confused....exercise! lol.

    if possible id cut out the soda all together. its terrible for you. i understand you build a dependency on the stuff.

    and what do you mean exercise lol? working out is one of my favorite things. everything is better when your in shape.

    I am more of a pilates/yoga type although I do enjoy tennis. I did kickbox for a while and am contemplating getting back into it. I am dependent on the soda which is why I will quit with small doses as opposed to cold turkey.

    i used to be addicted to ginger-ale. so i understand that. i had to completely remove it from the house to stop drinking it. i dont do small dose quiting. when im done with it i quit. ill put up with the cravings to get off something. im pretty close to saying no more sweets as im getting a little pudge on the waist.

    A little pudge can be appealling you know. It is nice to cuddle up with a cushy belly. I dated Ichabod Crane and he was boney and hard -- I tried to fatten him up a little but he never gained an ounce. A man's thighs must be thicker than mine for the relationship to be successful.

    i dont know what i would say if a girl told me its over because of my thighs. i dont know if i would be mad or confused. and ichabod crane was a stud. at least in sleepy hollow. the cartoon one couldnt have done much for a lady.

    Haha. I'm only half serious. I haven't actually ended a relationship with a guy due to his weight (or lack of it) but will always prefer a man who is a tad overweight to underweight.

    Trust me when I say this one was no stud! :shock:

    Swine trainer wants me at 8% BF.

    You ever try to find jeans in 30X34?!?!

    Or buy a suit with a 42" jacket and 30" waist.

    No bargain.

    On the plus side, I feel terrific in that range.

    8% body fat is pretty good. you would have to be really strict with your diet to get below that.

    and no i have never tried to look for jeans in that size as i dont own a pair of jeans. there just not comfortable for me.

    Crashing the bistro. That is one of my all-time favourite binge items. There is nothing like french onion sour cream dip and rippled potato chips. I went to college in southwestern US and they used to sell this certain brand of rippled chips - unbelieveable! I may have to have that this weekend. It has been a long time.

    Hey Peter! Slides onto the bar stool next to her favorite Swede, except for Bjorn. Having a new washer is quite divine! When I got mine last summer I did 4 loads in a row...what a treat to have a new efficient one!

    Looks up and sees that the ceiling fan is empty*****sigh*****
    I see that my beloved has forgotten a special day. Was maybe hoping to be whisked away somewhere special or at least a romp in squirrel suits.
    Oh well....walks behind the bar a brings back a nice proseco. Pours a little pomegranate juice into my "special" glass and tops it with bubbly.....
    "another scotch for you Peter, or one of these?"

    Hey Peter, welcome back!

    Okay, now for my gripe of the day. I went to WalMart last week and picked up a few books. I am not a fan of Walmart but whatever. Today, I stopped into the Superstore to grab a few things and decided to browse the book aisle. Sure enough, the same books I had already purchased were marked as 40% off. So I asked a woman who works there who happened to be in the aisle if the books had just gone on sale. "Oh no", she responded, "They have been marked down for almost a month now." Grrrrr.

    Today's purchases are relatively uneventful, but in my habit of sharing........ I bought a sheaf of graph paper, a package of markers, a package of pencil crayons (all for a personal/work related project), a candle, two copies of Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs, Post-Mortem by Patricia Cornwell, Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber and The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James. Now considering how much reading I do every day, by the time I get through the stacks I have I'll be well into my nineties.

    Tennis times two

    This evening I played tennis twice.

    First I played an hour of some social doubles (well, as social as it can be with four competitive guys on the court :). I sucked big time. Everything was off. No timing. Gah!

    Then an hour later I had the regular tennis group practice session. And suddenly everything worked like a charm. I bombed in my serves. I blasted forehands. Backhands were solid.

    Ah well. Just gotta keep the "feeling" from that last session to the league match we're going to play on Saturday... :)
