The OTHER plan

Oh yes, there's another plan. The real man plan. I decided early in January (after realizing that perhaps acu school doesn't have the largest selection of guys, nor easy socializing) that I would rejoin that dating site that has a name like a small piece of wood you strike on a box to make fire with. Arr. Subtlety has always been my strong point.

Anyhoo. I set myself not a date target by which I would sign up, but a weight target. In that once I got down to a certain weight, I'd get me some nice new photos and set myself up a profile. I decided to make myself lose a few pounds first because I don't want to make any excuses about being insecure about the size of my butt and not do this! 2009 is the no excuse year. Well, I stepped on the scale this morning, and while I'm not quite there yet, it's within 2 pounds and more importantly, I'm in the lower "decade" at last. So, as I already have a trip planned for next weekend to see the family (gramps is over from Blighty, and second cousin is down from Canada), I have decided to take my camera and make people take lots of pics of me. While I take lots of pics of them too. Hopefully I will get a good one or two that will be somewhat flattering.

Eek!

Good plan. Wish I was there so I could take a few snaps. Used to be a professional photographer.

I didn't have so much luck with that site... but hopefully you do!! :)

I adopted my daughter as a SMC. It's a great option... in case you are interested. :) (although, China isn't an option right now)
