Less is more.

So since the end of December six people have quit at my company (which is only about 100 people between here and our Pittsburgh office). And you might think that means things are terrible at work, and maybe they are for some people, but for the first time in a while I'm actually not miserable at my job. I'm hoping this feeling sticks. I also hope that when reveiws and raises come around next month I don't get shafted and subsequently pissed off again like I did after bonus. Only time will tell though. Meanwhile we're taking bets about how many more people are going to quit by the end of the month.

So far I've been good at keeping with my new years resolutions. I've been going to the gym and trying to watch what I eat. I think 18lbs by June will be doable. I don't really need to be skinny until August, but I figure that June we'll be getting our final fitting for our bridesmaid dresses so I'd like to be at my best weight then. We also have the best bridesmaid dresses ever. It's this dress in Euro Red. Everyone is going to look beautiful in it, but of course not as beautiful as Amie will in her wedding dress. I would put up a picture of her dress, but I don't want any nosy fiances stumbling across it by accident. But yeah, so far I've lost 1.5lbs. Woo! I've also been flossing every night and reading more. My goal is to read at least 12 books this year. I figure that is manageable. I'm still working on the whole going to church thing. Maybe this week.

But speaking of dieting... a warning to the rest of you who are watching what they're eating. DO NOT GET A WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE FROM DUNKIN' DONUTS. A medium (which I niavely ordered this morning) has 340 calories, 13 grams of fat, 11g saturated fat, 430mg sodium, 77g carbohydrates, and 44g of sugar. To put this into perspective the breakfast sandwich (egg&cheese on english muffin) I got with it only has 280 calories, 9g fat and 4.5g saturated fat. Gross. I think I am done eating out until after Dragon*Con.

I am so excited for Pirates of the Caribbean to be coming out in only 4.5 months, but I'm not excited that Kiera Knightly is going to look like a man in this one again!

Why can't they just put her in another corset that gives her like a 14 inch waist and her boobs are hanging out of it? Seriously.

Oh and lastly... squee! Jewel Staite got a myspace page. She and Matty are so so cute and she is beautiful and Nathan Fillion is hilarious. Is there a way to get his blog on livejournal? I so hate actually signing into myspace. Though maybe I will just for Jewel.

Apparently the title of this post "less is more" didn't apply to the length of this entry. Heh. Later, skaterz.

Pretty, pretty dress.

As for the blog have you tried clicking the 'rss' link in the right hand corner, and making that into a lj-feed? ("add feed" box, bottom of page.)

I am so internets-savvy, oh yes.

You are a genius! Won't let me make Jewel's blog into one though. D'oh.
Jan. 11th, 2007 09:46 pm (UTC)
Her off-MySpace blog? That looks like a plain text .html file (silly, silly Jewel), so there's no rss available. Basically, anything that has a rss link, paste that url into the add feed box and presto. Anything else, no luck.

No, the myspace one. I already knew I couldn't do the other, so I've had it as a side link for a while now so I could stalk her check it periodically for updates.

It's the exact same process as for Nathan's blog -- the rss url for Jewel's is http://blog.myspace.com/blog/rss.cfm?friendID=147037658.

Yeah, I really am not retarded and tried that, but it didn't work. But my roommate managed to figure it out.

Thanks though!

Good. *g*

These actors are killing me. I NEVER wanted a myspace account but when Nathan got his blog I seriously considered signing in. I didn't. Now I have to, because of Jewel

The dress is absolutely beautiful! Wow, you guys are really lucky :D

EEee, thanks! I'm so excited. :-)
