Getting back and other news

Just got back to Nashville. So tired. It's good to be home, I have to say. Everybody talks in English and the bullshit level here pales in comparison to Japan's. It's like being in a perpetual state of ice-cream-eating. Then again, all I've done since I entered this country is eat. People make you eat constantly around here. Part of that was because I was with extended family, but still.... Eating just isn't my thing, but I feel bad about "wasting" food.

Weighed myself at Granny's house yesterday. I've lost over 15 lbs since winter break. Pretty good, considering, well, everything.

Heh, heh. I AM the Pope. (Well, nobody'd get that except Zeph, Owen, or MC, but whatever.)

I got second piercings. Mom made a nasty comment (I knew she would, but it didn't hurt any less): "Oh, and I thought you were going to be the good one!" Honestly. I thought about it for 6 months and decided to go through with it. I think they're simple, classy, and elegant. They're small silver 3mm studs, and they look fabulous with any earrings I pair them with that have silver on them. Jeez.

There was totally something else I was going to write about, but I forgot it all.

Oh, and if anybody wants to hang out (starting next week, preferably, since my dad's off this week and we're trying to crunch in some family time--plus, I have to study for the GRE), gimme a call.

This family vacation has been awesome: we've done nothing but watch Family Guy and Adam Sandler movies. When doing other things, we've been quoting them constantly. "Damn you, Tony TuTone!"

Going to watch Spiderman 2 with my parents tonight. There are about a biJILLION movies I haven't seen yet. Many more I don't even know about. It's like Christmas with central heat! Eep!

Spiderman was my first love. Well, my first "not actually living or breathing" love, anyway. I used to watch the show because 1) it was just awesome and 2) I wanted to be him and 3) I was in love.

Really better go now.

Call me if you want to hang out (did I say that already?)

"I'm turning you into poo!"

Gah, mom can be a real ass sometimes. I bet the piercings look great on you ^_^ I did the same thing (3mm) and I love it :D
