Being broke and happy makes you thin!

So I am sitting here at home, sick. I know I got this at faire. No more smooching people and sharing drinks. (who am I kidding?) I'm puttering around, starting projects, trying to find a job I can live with. I decided to wrassle up some lunch, realized there was nothing I wanted to eat, and came back out here to putter on the puter.We've been really broke, so I've been grocery shopping very carefully, only buying exactly what we need. That means no/very little junk food. Then it occurred to me I've been doing that a lot, looking for something to nibble, not finding anything, and going to do something else. Another thought occurred: there is no vending machine at my house to get a candy bar (or two) every day to wash away the dissatisfaction and stress of my sucky job. No job, no stress, no vending machine. I dug out and dusted off my scale that I buried in a fit of melancholy last month. Fourteen pounds gone!!! Doing nothing but getting fired! The only time I ever slimmed down to where I almost wanted to be was when I was super-duper poor, I only had about $5 a week to eat, and 1 meal a day at the restaurant where I worked. I looked good! Maybe I will not get a job, and by next year sometime I will look fabulous. I might be homeless, but damn, I will look good! heehee!

Here's a youtube calcio link I haven't seen before:

Azzuro ROCKS!!!! Can anyone translate??

I am wicked excited about this weekend. I have a whole jug of limoncello ready to go. yay! there were two recipies:one took 80 days,the other(which claims to be the authentic Italian one) only took 10. I soaked my lemons for 25 days to get the maximum flavor out, and then processed like the 10 day recipie- let's see how it drinks. It tastes really good!

I didn't realize how much sewing I have left- how did winter pass so quickly? I need to:
-fix my low neck shift. (i tore it apart because it fits funny)
-make a new shift (high necked with a ruffle)
-fix the waistband of my greys where they totally ripped out.
-make bloomers and a shift for Rowan's friend Michela who always comes with us. Next week is her birthday and she has been talking about faire all winter, so I figure it is time for her own garb, instead of always borrowing Rowan's seconds. Rowan can actually make the bloomers, if she doesn't have too much homework this weekend.
-re-hem my brown coat ( I wore it to Calaveras- er, Sonora- and kept tripping on it like a madwoman.

I don't know if Im going to wear my orange on Sunday, I might see how the brown coat looks with the pink dress. It takes so freaking long to get dressed in the orange, i feel bad taking up people's time getting me into my clothes. I don't think I have the noble mindset down yet. (I am barely out of the peasant mindset most days) Even with side lacings, how did anyone ever get anything done before 11:00?

So it's week 2 of being unemployed, I am officially unpaid now, and am freaking out only a little. Maybe I will have some good news come Saturday!

I am going to Dicken's this weekend, and maybe Gaskell if I feel better from the Martian Death Plague I caught this weekend. Does anyone have inexpensive tix to share?

I am so resisting the urge to try and make something new. Or take my dress apart and spruce it up. NONONO!!!!! Thus lies despair! Grrr.
