anagram madness

the HO of the last entry reminded me of a little roommate game we play involving letters. so meg got old in the beginning of this month so i made her a little 'happy birthday meg! love, mov sara cait' sign out of letters i painstakingly hand-drew and colored in. which was fine for like one week of being on our living room wall.

then it got boring.

now we come home to messages like:
which is a part of:

all of the credit goes to dan (megs bff.. i mean fiance) for this lovely sentence.

it really is difficult to use all of the letters. i mean, "blow ho" and "eat dirt" were my favorite anagrams, but to each their own.

gung HO!

so its still all snowy, but at least its like 30 degrees. its sad when you go outside and think 'hey, its pretty warm today', when it is still below freezing. but hey - with no wind, that means its like fifty degrees warmer than last week.

well valentine's day was good. nate gave me fat* and we spent the night playing a romantic two hours of dodgeball. which made me remember how out of shape i actually am. (in case you're wondering, it is VERY. i am VERY out of shape) so of course, i'm all like "let's start a brand new work-out regimen. two days of cardio, and the rest i'll do a billions sit-ups and crunches and push ups and..." i have this problem where whenever i decide to start some health thing i am determined to do it "all or none". so i screw up once, i just stop completely. you can find this mentality in all areas of my life. for instance, my room. i started organizing my desk, but got to something i couldn't find a place for, so i just stopped.

i was all gung-ho** about being healthy and doing good this week - after the upset at dodgeball last week, i went to the gym on tuesday (AT EIGHT THIRTY IN THE MORNING! i can't get up for class, but yet i can go to the gym. i amaze myself daily) and did some gym-stuff. i started doing pilates at night and last night i went to dodgeball. i started eating better and stuff and what does my body do? give me an effing cold! a big middle finger to you, body!

*ok, so he didn't give me like a huge tub of lard. it was actually two large tubs of coldstone ice cream. mmmm. then he weighed the tubs and told me i would gain 4 pounds if i ate it all at once. thank you nate. 2 pounds down, 2 to go! let me go enjoy my delicious weight gain.

**is that really how you spell gung-ho? i never thought about it before, but it felt really weird to type 'gung'. 'ho' was not hard to type.

even my heart is cold. *sniffle*

so remember when it was in the 60's in Novemeber and everyone* was like "oh, where is winter" and "i miss the snow" and "whine whine winter whine". well screw you guys. it is definitely winter now. and after one day of freezing cold and sub-zero wind chill everyone is all like "oh, its sooo cold" and "its soooo windy" and "whine whine brrr whine". its buffalo people. of course its cold. of course its windy. of course it snows for the better part of EVERY DAY. of course college stays open when all area schools close for days because its SO COLD PEOPLE COULD DIE.

at least we are no longer in the single / sub-zero digits in temperature where walking from my cozy apartment to part-ways on campus resulted in ICE CRYSTALS on the outside of my scarf where it covered up my nose and mouth. yes, ice crystals.

a) i am an explorer in siberia making a long treck to the CFA (we lost johnny a while back, and i think marie lost a nose to frostbite, my, that looks bad) where i will rescue something/someone/find a mountain of chocolate
b) i am making a nature show - with obligatory british/austrailian-accented narration - following the tracks of some dangerous arctic creature
c) i am a homeless person who must keep moving or freeze to death

i guess my over-active imagination isn't so over-active in the freezing cold. its more like on survival mode or something. usually i'm just thinking 'don't fall, don't fall, ok that could be ice! ok slowwww, slowww, must find better winter shoes'.

happy almost valentine's day.

*here's where i admit that "everyone" = me too.
