Girls' Night turned out to be no big deal. I'm still glad I let them know ahead of time that I was gonna be on my best behavior, although it sure didn't stop anyone from bringing the most sugary bullshit ever invented. It actually wasn't THAT hard to say no...even in the morning when everyone was hungover and eating fresh do-nuts all up in my face. And to be honest, by that time, I was pretty fucking hungry since I had dinner at like 5 the previous day like some elderly person at Kountry Kitchen Buffet. Thank goodness Angel has a diabetic son and that house never out of sunflower seeds. Whew.
One clear advantage to not drinking was that beating everyone at Scrabble was super easy. Behold...the Scrabble Queen!
Although, and I'm not trying to be cocky here, but I'm pretty sure I could have beat them drunk too. I'm just pretty decent at board games. It's like my life's calling.
In honor of the Scrabble Tournament, one lady made letter-shaped chocolates. Seeing as how I am a dork to the Nth degree and I get super excited finding my name on anything, I HAD to do this:
I didn't eat the chocolates when I was done though. I was gonna just throw them out since I'd been handling them but I forgot drunk people will eat anything and they especially love when you throw stuff at them to catch in their mouth. Like seals! Good times ensued.
All in all, I'd say it was a pretty great night. I realize that I can't expect people to change their fun just to satiate my "diet-of-the-month." I was able to have fun without the guilt and it feels pretty awesome. Also, I drank about a gallon of water. Turns out that trick does kinda work.
After about 3 hours of trying to figure out the self-timer, we were finally able to get a group pic:
I told everyone to throw up their "I'm-gonna-cut-this-bitch" face, and this is what we got. I dunno what the hell half of them were doing, but I guess not everyone cuts the same, you know?
Weigh-In today, and I sure hope the scale has some love for me considering how well I did all week. I had a pretty big loss last week, so my hopes aren't super high, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a good loss to get me back in first place with only ONE more week to go! We'll see what happens.
Hope you all had a good weekend! <3
