skinny fingers

i've always had chubby fingers to go along with my chubby body. i accepted the fact and it didn't bother me that much. i don't wear much jewelry and never rings, so i could avoid thinking about my sausage fingers. getting my class ring in high school (which is now lost, most likely forever) made me think about it... especially when comparing my stubs to my skinny skinny friends, but besides that i just ignored them.

last week i was talking to my sister about my hands. i noticed a little while ago that when i type i can see my metacarpals going crazy. it may not seem like a big deal, but it's one of thsoe little things that reminds me how far i've come. my fingers are nowhere near skinny today, but i think sausage fingers is a phrase of my past... that motivates me to get my bootay to the y after work today :)

mini friend rant starting now...

can someone have a rebound with a lizard? i suspect that my friend is attempting to.

she recently broke up with her boyfriend and suddenly wants to buy a bearded dragon and she even commented about how she considered an iguana... wtf. she has never owned a lizard and is one of those people who get bored easily. i think she just wants a hobby and/or thing to care for, but really? a bearded dragon? i think she has talked herself out of it, but i'm trying to provide her with other ideas to distract her from her "boyfriendless misery". for her, but also for me... one can only stand so many conversations about the capacity of another one's dvr. she needs some hobbies stat.

thanks for listening blogville.


  1. I can honestly say I've never heard of a lizard rebound, but I agree with you that it's not the best idea I've ever heard. My brother had one and I remember them being a lot of work too.

    Ugh, when I got my class ring, it was like a size 13. Not cool.

  2. Haha. Get her on the workout train. Or get her into some things like puzzles, books, clubs....

    I got a pet rat in college during one of my down actually turned out really well. He was ADORABLE :)

  3. Get your friend into blogging! I'm addicted! :) Or she could get into macrame! LOL Just kidding. What sort of things does she like to do?

  4. i wish i could get her on the work out train, but i know that's something she has to want for herself first. blogging might be a good idea... she needs to vent.

    pet rats are awesome! i actually suggested that to her, but she can't handle their tails lol.

  5. Maybe she can just visit the lizards at the zoo. In terms of a breakup pet, I don't know how happy she will be with a lizard. Not much affection there and kind of boring since they just sit around. I do suggest a rat if she wants something scary.
