Okay I’m watching one of these “extreme weight loss” shows, and they’re pushing this woman to lose 84 pounds in 90 days, and then they wanted her to lose another 50 pounds in the next 90 days, and they want her working out 4 hours per day.
Does it matter at all that this is NUTS?!? That is INCREDIBLY UNHEALTHY. Or but because she’s fat it doesn’t matter what crazy shit they make her do as long as she loses weight? I mean, holy shit, she lost 28 pounds in 90 days (a pound every 3 days!) and they’re treating her like she failed.
This is horrible and it’s making me hate myself just a little bit more.
And I don’t know what the solution is, because I obviously can’t just be like, “Don’t be in the living room so much.”
Maybe I need to buy something big and space-taking-up to put in the living room, like she did with the record player.
Take the direct approach. “Excuse me, can you move over a smidge so I can watch tv with you?”
Well, so that’s the thing, though. She’s very happy to “let” me watch my TV, and she’ll move her things over a smidge and let me use 1/3rd of the futon, after her record is finished playing, but I just feel like I’m in HER space and in HER way as if she’s just, like, so magnanimously allowing me to sit there. She is camped out in there ALL DAY LONG, and when I want to watch the TV, she’ll move over a smidge, and I feel like I’m in her space. And it makes me not even want to, so I just sit in my room being bitter on the internet while she’s spread out in her room, the living room, and the kitchen.
I think I’m going to tell my roommate I’m canceling the Hulu Plus and the Netflix, because I never get to be in the living room and if she wants those services and she’s using them then she can pay for them, because yet again she’s spread out in the living room and I’m in my bedroom and it really annoys me.
The downside of this is, if I do that, I then have NO reason to be in the living room, because I can’t tell her I want to watch the TV, so I will be even more banished.
You look cute! Also I’ve seen at least 3 posts from you tonight which I think is more than I’ve seen in the last 6 months. It’s good to see you! :)
Thanks! I’ve been a bit down lately and haven’t felt like I’ve had anything to contribute. I’m still around, though. Nice to see you, too!
