It’s Saturday. Pretty early to be on this thing; but I’ve been awake forever. I’m munching on zesty Italian flavored croutons. I was supposed to start a 5 day fast today but I don’t know. I’m starting to think my monthly fasts are doing me more harm than good.

I just spoke to Janice on the phone a moment ago. She’s back in town after spending Thanksgiving with her family in Virginia. She wants me to attend some function with her this afternoon. She says it’s time for me to get out of the house. I know she’s right. I need to get out of the house. It’s been a while; but I don’t know. I’m trying to think of excuses to give her for why I won’t be able to go with her today.

In the meantime I’ve already decided on my outfit just in case she threatens to come and drag me out of the house by force. She’s threatened to do that before and she carried out the threat so I know if she makes that threat she’ll come with Bryan and Richard and they’ll forcibly dress me and drag me out of here.

If I go I will be wearing my Elizabeth and James little black dress with my Vionnet black leather ankle boots my quilted leather biker jacket from Just Cavalli and my Burberry studded leather clutch. Pretty much all black. I don’t even remember what Janice said the event is all about or where it’s to be held.

Well I have consumed the entire bag of croutons. Not good. Limits my options for the rest of the day. But at least I can enjoy a nice cup of tea guilt free. Not that I ever really feel guilt after eating. I don’t; but I do get depressed when my clothes get to fitting more snugly than usual. It should be beneath me; or I should say–I should be above these silly concerns with vanity. I’m not a teenager any more after all. I think once a girl reaches 23 she should already have put away all that teenage obsession with being skinny and depriving herself of food to fit into size zero jeans. That’s not to say you should just let yourself go to the other extreme and not care how you look; but shallow women don’t usually influence the world for the better.
