    I'm angling for an anime character this year, probably Excel or Winry Rockbell. I don't really want to do Winry this year though, because we don't have time to get SWG a suit of armor, Geek an arm, or Evil a related costume. At least Excel I'd be willing to do solo. I may do Persephone, Hades, and Cerberus with Geek and Froot Loop (need to look into hair color.)

    Lawl @ Froot Loop. Nice name. I vote Greek stuff, just 'cause you can modernize it and do whatever you want. I was my own version of Harley Quinn one year, and my ex was Joker.

    WLB, I will definitely be interested in seeing what you guys decide on! Phineus and Ferb, while I know little about it, sounds fun. I'll PM you with my REAL NAME OH NOES. Though you can probably find it through my blog anyway heh.

    Geek's costume would be relative easy, we have an old monk's style robe with a really deep hood that he used to play a demon the year I went as a vampire hunter. That, some scruff, and no hair cut should do it. Mine'd be relatively easy as well, I have an old pattern for an angel's robe somewhere in the closet of mysteries (AKA my coat and craft closet); I can use that, some Old Hollywood style make up, and carry a sheaf of grain or a squash vine or something. Froot Loop's'll be the hard one, not so much making the extra heads as getting her to wear it.

    For your amusement:

    The REAL first time I had pink hair, right before leaving for college.

    Back when I wore emo-eyeliner, had my eyebrow pierced (RIP...but maybe bringing that back soon), and was growing out a tiny mohawk. My hair is STICK STRAIGHT.

    Me as Harley Quinn:

    I still have the tutu, but I doubt I'll use it again. I made the leggings from large, stretchy pants, and the shirt...from a larger shirt. All hand-sewn because I did not yet have a sewing machine. I still have the leggings, but I'm considering tossing them and making a new pair that fits better, is sewn better, and has neater diamonds. Also, OMG masks are hard to paint on.


    With an asshole we no longer speak to (and I get into a rage when speaking of) as Two-Face, my ex as an awesome Joker, me, and a random chick that wanted a photo with us as...something.

    Thinking out loud: last therapy session, I talked about being nervous about keeping on top of working out regularly. It's very hard for me to stick with physical activities. My town has a community education program, and the Fall offerings include a few things that interest me:

    -Outdoor evening bootcamp, for either 2x weekly sessions for 6 weeks ($105), or 6 Mondays or Wednesdays for $60. It's up the street from my parents house, so I could keep my yoga mat and workout clothes there and walk up after work. 6-7PM means I'd have time to get there after work, but dinner would be late.
    -Intro to Pilates, 10 Saturdays (in the AM) for $120. I don't know much about pilates, but I feel like this would be good for bodyweight stuff.
    -Barre Lower Body & Core, 10 Saturdays, $120. This one interests me most, for core and posture work. It starts 9/22 so I'd have to sign up soon. At the high school, apparently. [Damn, apparently this is filled up.]

    In the future, I wonder if Boyfriend would do a dance class with me. I'm AWFUL at formal dancing, I really need individual attention to remember where to put my feet, so I don't know how well that would go, but it could be fun. I'd love to learn how to swing dance!

    There's also a Can & Preserve Fruits & Veggies class in October for $35, one session, with a $15 food fee (and $5 registration fee, so it's $55 total). I don't know that I'd need a class to figure this out, but it might be nice to have some hands-on guidance.

    I don't know if it's worth investing the money in something like this now, or if it'd be better to wait for the Winter schedule (November onwards), since I can still bike now. And my spare $ amount remains to be seen, since I have not needed to fill the oil tank yet.

    I probably wouldn't waste money on canning classes unless I had a garden/orchard, although it would be cool to learn. I would take formal dance lessons with the wife, for what it's worth.

    I like your new avatar.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    The only thing I want to "can" right now is applesauce, anyway. My grandmother could teach me how to do it, though I've read how. I'm a very visual/hands-on learner. We'll see if I actually do this before I bother spending $ on it (aside from the apples).

    Thanks! I figured I should update it, even if I end up going purple next month, since that old purple has been gone for over 3 months.

    I am definitely seeing a trend. Mood has been lower with higher frequency lately. I don't really know what to do about it. Tryptophan seemed to help for a few days, but today, it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Last night, I got upset over something I read online relating to it being Worldwide Suicide Prevention Day. I gave myself some time to stew, wrote an angry response, and felt better for sticking up for myself. A friend commented on my post and agreed with me, which also made me feel better. I was feeling upset so Boyfriend's suggestion of late-night bacon and eggs was both welcome and upsetting (eating late usually means I sleep poorly, and it also means we're now out of bacon, but I ended up sleeping fine). I ate 4 slices of bacon and gorged on yogurt. Not sure if I'll make it to the weekend with what I have left, which means biking for more milk, which I should be doing anyway. Totally do-able, but the motivation is lacking. I also have a check to cash from my mom. I ALSO already failed the 21-Day challenge by deciding to have a little beer (about 1/2 a bottle) last night (Harpoon's Octoberfest). It was very tasty, but didn't leave my head feeling very good. I might not have anymore of the 6-pack. It is probably a good idea for me to not be drinking while my mood is messed up.

    This morning, someone involved with the post that upset me had sent me an apology. I really appreciated them reaching out to me, but I still felt like shit. It feels like high school mornings all over again, complete with the cool Fall-ish weather. I could've easily stayed in bed for a few more hours. Everything in me wanted to stay home, but that's not an option. Lunch is pretty small, turkey and cheese (both Applegate) roll-ups and some tomatoes from my mom's garden. I meant to bring some yogurt, but maybe it's best that I hold off until after work to give my system a bit of a break from last night. I still took my morning supplements, including the 100-billion strain probiotic, no breakfast.

    [Not very TMI] On the digestive issue front, I'm curious if increasing my soluble fiber intake will help a bit, since I'm getting basically no movement at all unless I use epsom salts. There are too many potential roads to take. Now is the time when a less stubborn person might see a doctor.
    -Keep taking epsom salts when it's been too long (3-5 days) and see if the probiotics will eventually (within a week) fix things/take hold (before progressing on to another option).
    -Get 5 days supply of Emergen-C to take in the evenings, to see if that works. If everything seems "normal" like that, invest in some Hydro-C and reassess later.
    -See a doctor, probably give a stool sample, and find out if my gut bacteria is dead, imbalanced, or something else, and work out a game plan.

    I know I'm not okay. My mood and gut issues are probably interlinked. I just don't know what to do about it. It's very distressing to me that I can consider cutting myself after yesterday. I am feeling rather hopeless about my health issues and plummeting mood.

    If Boyfriend can get the car to the dealership to get the engine and transmission oil changed this week, I might be driving up to Maine to visit Baba. I'm nervous about going on my own, but he was not interested in coming with. I guess that gives me more time to browse in one of the shops downtown, for which I have a $50 gift certificate. Maybe I can find a couple of nice pieces (sweater and pants?) or a new dress. It would also be nice to maybe take a walk in the woods on her property and take some pictures.

    Tonight, I think I will at the very least make myself some applesauce. Somehow, that makes up for not exercising, maybe because it's another way of taking care of myself. And it will be a way to add some cooked fruit back into my diet, to see how that goes, since I've been itch-free for at least a week now.

    Nameless- I'm sorry to hear about the SPD post and the drama. That was the last thing you needed on such an emotionally charged day. As to the cutting desire, I can msg or PM you my phone number, if it would help to talk to someone that's BTDT. I know that shit's scary. All the tips and tricks in the world to avoid it don't help with the desire, I know.
