On Call

I'm on call for work this week, which means I'm contractually obligated not to be farther than 20 minutes away from a computer this week and weekend. Kind of a bummer, as I won't be able to participate much in the Portland Yarn Crawl. Then again, it's probably a good thing - you know, save me from myself.

I've been kind of grumpy the last few days as I'm trying to break my current sugar habit. I'll tell you right now, up front, that this isn't about weight or the evils of sugar. In the last year I've made a concerted effort to drop the whole food guilt thing and I cannot express adequately just how much happier and relieved I am not to feel morally "good" or "bad" based on what I eat. Screw that. There's only food, not "good" or "bad"; just food, and the different effects it has on my body.

But I've been feeling kind of like a big bucket of crud lately and I know I get like that sometimes when the sugar is riding high. So I'm doing this because I want to feel better, and I because dislike craving sugar every day.

Also bummed because the dresses I tried ordering from this place I just found do not fit. I went through this already with Shabby Apple in January. Supercute dresses, but I was put out to have to pay shipping fees for the privilege of trying on their dresses that didn't fit. Update your size charts, grrrr. They are the only thing I can use to tell if I'll fit your clothing.

The new place is Pinup Girl Clothing and I lurve some of their dress designs, but my bosom was too much for this one and the others were inches too small in the waist.

I really need to suck it up and start making my own. This is getting ridiculous. Yes, I know there are fat lady clothing places on the web, but I VASTLY prefer natural fabrics and none of them seem to make anything in non-polyester. Would it KILL them to make something in cotton? Sigh.

Irony. I've been threatening (again) to learn to sew my own clothes too. Sigh.

I prefer online shopping and hate trying on clothes but I also hate shipping/returning things that don't fit. That leaves no dresses, shoes, bras, or swimsuits in my near future!
