* That coffee with the three instant spoons in it? Well, my brain is more awake, indeed. However, my allergy kicks ass now. (Took two Telfast at once. Perhaps I should scale this down a bit next time - two spoons and not three. My body obviously can't stand this much caffeine at once.)

*Yesterday though? was seriously fun. So much.

Tami and I wanted to go shopping- that is, I decided I need to gather up my courage and look for new dresses, as it has been two years and Dress Shopping is really hard for me. And Tami is a darling and also has excellent taste and we didn't see her in a month or so.

Hagar recced us Castro as they have good sales and some dresses that might even fit a woman who's size is 40, and not only 36-38. So, I said, why not? At the worst, we will find nothing and go look elsewhere.

And indeed, after several failed attempts, I found two cute dresses - one a red dress (I loved the intense red color) and the other a nice grey. Both a bit wintery and the red one might work as an evening dress.

And both of them together - 180 NIC only:)

And than [personal profile] antongarou arrived. Which was the cue, apparently, for the All The Silliness show that we manage to create between the two of us. We preformed masterfully, I must admit, and poor Tami was half laughing, half face-palmed over us.

[personal profile] antongarou needed some shirts and a new purse (badly. He never buys a new one until the damn thing is already torn to pieces.) We had found him two lovely shirts in Castro Man (one in a glorious blue color which works very well on him. As good as purple. ) and even a purse, although this one is smaller by far than his last one. Oh well. At least it's in one piece, yet.

Than, Tami introduced me to a new store - Goldbarry. Dear god, that place is as good as Mousner, and those of us who shop there knows what that means. Much cheaper, though. And the saleswoman are adorable, kind, and know their work.

I went out with a beautiful dark blue dress, that made [personal profile] antongarou smile his huge Shark Smile. And would have done the same to Hagar,I think. It's that good. However, as it was 300 NIC, I decided that that's it - this one is perfect and we have no budget for more.

Tami didn't agree with me, however. Before trying the blue dress I tried another one that was adorable. So, after we payed for the dress I chose, she told us "wait outside, I will just pay for mine now and meet you" (she found an absolutely lovely light pink dress that suited her to a T. Just perfect. And I loved the soft pink color on her:)

Anyhow, she meets us outside after a few minutes, and I discover that she had bought me the other dress...That's Tami, all right

after that we wanted to have dinner together, so off to Zepra we went. On the grounds that it's an old favorite. I had the brilliant idea of parking in CP (we do work there, so why not take advantage of a perfectly good parking place?)

We had a great time and great food. However, I woke up during the night with a horrible heartburn, that ended up in my coughing my guts out. Hence my need for the Wake Up Coffee, that ended up with an allergy. Oh well. The Telfast is keeping this contained, at least.)

For most of the day I was spitting mad - a combo of; Heat; feeling sick; my idiot team-mates; bureaucratic mess (with my Kupa, and it's making life harder;) and an annoying inch allover my body. Yuck.

Now I'm better, however, and the cool shower relived most of the inch, and some Isostar helped with the nausea.

After work I've went to my biweekly meeting with Gita. We went over my work over the past two weeks, as well as the issue from last Saturday.

Now, her method with me is simple - she does not give me exercise or tell me what to do; instead, after we discuss an issue, she has me come up with a workout or a solution, and than we refine it if it's needed (sometimes she just approves of my suggestions).

That's really works well for me, and over the past three weeks I've made rapid progress.

So, regarding the issue from last Saturday - I suggested that if I run into such a situation again, the best approach is - minimalism. Unless I'm certain I'm really familiarized with the issue, it's a very good idea not to say anything that might give an impression that you are. Say little, ("Beautiful" for example) and ask for more information if you want to understand better. This approach will also serve me better at work.

* Started the day with a blood scan, and, for a change, didn't end with a huge bruise on my arm. Nice change.

* Results are less than good, however - I have done HbA1C test, and the results are above the norm, which means I'm in the Pre-Diabetes stage.

* Work day was good, however. I even managed to keep my calm during the horrible weekly team teaming. (that took some doing - I wanted to kill that woman. However, I kept my mouth shut and didn't say a word. It would have only screwed me up to talk back. Also, why waste energy?)

* Last two days I'm able to do 8 hours a day - for the first time in several months.

* I just love Sam's vocalisations. She is such as funny little cat - she hardly mews - she squeaks.

* Realized a short time ago why I fell back into a loop today - the hopeless part in me got a bit too strong and I had a hard time talking it back down. I'm better now, however.
