Does it disturb/irk anyone else that Aidan from Sex and the City is narrating the Applebee's commercials? Because it's really starting to annoy me. What with all the furniture making, buying trips to the Middle East and cheating with Carrie, how does he find the time???
I read a really good book recently - American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. She is a very different type of author in that her books will suck you right in despite the fact that nothing major is actually happening. (If you haven't read Prep, do it now. Not one significant event ever occurs but I promise it will keep you turning the pages. I've never talked to anyone that's read it and didn't have the same opinion.) (Sidebar: I didn't much care for Man of My Dreams.)
Last week I got a wild hair -pun intended- and decided I wanted bangs. So I got bangs. Nothing severe. Just a little side-swept thingie. I texted Jason a picture after I left the salon and his reply was "Nice! Hot.", which is so very un-Jason like. (The "hot" part, I mean.) I was all "Simmer down, McLovin. They're just bangs."
In other news, despite being very travel-y (which, as we all know, wreaks havoc on one's weight loss efforts) I have lost a grand total of 10 pounds. I know it would have definitely been more if we'd not been galavanting around the coast of North Carolina for the past two long weekends but I refuse to deprive myself when I'm on holiday. I try to practice some restraint but if there's crab dip, I will damn well eat it. And I will love it. Even if it means the weight doesn't come off quite as quickly. Some things are worth it. My short-term goal is 5 more pounds before our Ocracoke holiday the week of July 25.
