just passing the time..

i've had a rough couple of days health wise....i'm hoping to bounce back fully for tomorrow night's events : a 3 person show at the source on lake (in pasadena), and a group show at the i-5 (downtown). sure hope i can muster enough energy to act halfway normal.

all i gotta say is.....red stuff should NEVER come out of your pee pee. EVER. i've only had 4 or 5 urinary tract infections in my life, but this one took first place prize for pain. after each 'session' i checked the toilet believing i surely passed some sort of object : kidney stone, baby, basketball...

i'm not a fan of antibiotics, but all i could think was, 'gee, i'm so relieved i'm not a cave woman who has to suffer and possibly croak because of a little bacterial infection.'

i knew i was clearly out of my head the other day when the doc offered me pain pills and i declined. WHAT WAS i THiNKiNG?!!!

it was a combination of things...

but, the biggest reason: my body was telling me i needed certain things, not that you can't get plenty of protein being vegetarian (i was for 11 years and felt great most of the time)...it came down to a balance issue for me. i was trying to find things that i could actually eat and not feel like crap afterward (probably due to allergies?). so, when i can't get my regular sources of protein, i opt for meat....which is only a few bites every other month or so and maybe one piece of bacon a year. i love me some SALT.

Oh, that's not much meat!

I do try not to eat meat and stuff from fast food places, but other than that, I have it all the time. When I did the diet competition thing last month, I ate mushrooms instead of meat just to lose the weight quick but I really felt like something was missing! haha

LOVE me some portobello mushrooms....they're ALMOST steak like!!!! deprivation diets do suck it, don't they?...so, if you can find great substitutes, that's the key....now, if i could just find a good replacement for peanut m&m's, i'd be SET. HAHAHAHA

hey, do you know how to make Lj threads, to condense our long convo? i never quite learned how to do that???? ...and you're such a savvy 'puter pro!!!

I thought that once you got to a certain amount of replies, it would just condense automatically, right?

Is that what you meant?

aaaaaaaaah, i thought it was an option you could manually set....thanks for the info!

i wonder what the limit is before it starts auto condensing?
we might be close to finding out! ;D

Well maybe it is an option you can set and I just never noticed!

Yeah we're girls, we could just keep blabbing about nothing I'm sure. haha

Sure! But I'm not talking about American Idol. haha

The only reality type show I watch is Big Brother. Its only on in the summer so now I have to watch the UK Big Brother in the winter and the Australian Big Brother in... well, now! :)

Oh and I love Beauty and the Geek!!

what, NO 'HELL'S KiTCHEN????!!!!!' it combines food, a mean, sexy british guy AND reality!!!! well, if you wanna CALL it 'reality,' that is, cuz the producers fudge it to make it SEEM real.

used to watch 'big brother' - the american version just seems so dull and trite now...but, then again, i'm over 40, so that could explain a lot. i'll be TiVO-ing old episodes of 'lawrence welk' and 'murder she wrote' before ya know it!

Oh so you have seen Big Brother in other countries too?

I still think the US version is my favorite, just because I've been so stuck on it for a lot longer. I don't know what it is with that show, I just love it!

No I haven't heard of Hell's Kitchen but I don't have cable either!
