I'm Easily Pleased

My sister is getting married next year, and she asked me to be the usher. I just have to tell people where to sit. BUT I get to wear a proper suit, with a waistcoat and a cravat. I am beyond pleased at this and now must do everything in my power to make sure her relationship lasts at least that long. I will wear that suit. Jesse's getting an invite too because it turns out my sister and her have known eachother for four years without realising it.

It's next June, and if the blog is still going, I will post pictures of it, because by then I will be thinner. I think that to look good for my sisters wedding is a half decent goal I can kind of stick though, although I am still mainly losing weight for myself, having another reason will give me the potential to keep going even after I inevitably get depressed and start thinking what the point of changing for myself is. This always happens and dammit I've never pushed past that wall.

Lookit that, I can do a short, but still fun in my eyes, post. Yay I get to wear a waistcoat and a cravat, yay. All that's missing is a top hat and a cane.

By the way the site has gone through yet another re-design. I've taken the Twitter feed down, and installed a fancy pants bar at the bottom, and you can access my Twitter there, but there's nothing like following me on there, I'm tempted to make a post of some of the best things I've said on there, but the longer I wait to do that, the more stuff I'll have to choose from.

Even after extending it this post feels way too short -_- But fear not, for something happened yesterday that means this post can be EVEN LONGER (yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy). I received another award. That's right folks, I have one more to add to my collection. I'm wondering how many it will take for me to make an awards page. Anyway, it's also an award I've never gotten before, the iDig Your Blog Award.

I was given this by the Dirtycowgirl. You may remember her as the person I wrote the story for about the cowgirl who was scared of horses. Anyway, because I'm all about making posts the length of the diameter of the sun, I will in fact give in to this awards demands. Which this time are three facts about me. I'll try to make them things you don't already know, but that could be hard. I have a shit memory. This is hardly new though so it doesn't count :(

1. I used to sleep on my brother's floor. I don't know if I've talked about this or not but for a few years my house was a huge mess, and parts of it were uninhabitable, so me and my brother had to share his room. Eventually I moved into my own room after Jessie helped me clean it up so I could live in it, but it was still a major mess until recently. Very, very recently. I've only just got the new window put in and I still haven't gotten my door put up.

2. I have a seemingly half dead house plant in my window. Jessie recently told me that nothing grows in my room, and that is sadly a sense that you get from the place, so I took the literal option, and bought a plant. Sadly I bought it from a supermarket from the middle of the store where it would receive little to no natural light and I doubt it was watered. If I'm honest I still don't know if it's alive, but since it's been on my window sill and I've been watering it, it seems to have picked up, however some parts of it remain dead. Jessie says it's dying, and I hope it doesn't.

3. I have so few clothes that two of the drawers in my chest of drawers are full of games actually. The other one is filled with trousers that don't quite fit yet. I essentially have so few clothes I simply leave them on the banister where they dry as they don't take up much room there, and they don't stay on there for too long. Yes, I really don't have that many clothes. I have 2 t-shirts because I've lost some, and 3 normal shirts, but I always wear a t-shirt and a shirt at once usually, a pair of trousers for sleeping in, a pair for going out in, and a pair for other times because there's a hole just under the zip and I genuinely have no idea how it got there. If I was a girl the answer would be quite obvious >_>

I'm also supposed to pass this thing on to seven other people. I suck at this, so instead will do what I always do in these times, and say that if you're on my list of blogs to check out, you can claim you have one. I think I'm still missing an award or two though because every time I get one I say that and I don't have enough yet to cover all the blogs on there.

  2. @Mai Yang yes you can have one lol, but no you don't have to pass it on, I will not be responsible for 20+ passing on awards posts.

  3. Congrats on your award and being an usher. Very exciting stuff.

  4. Congrats on the award.
    As for the weight loss goal. Good luck with that. Try not to fall for any hype. Simple exercise and diet are the best ways, and the cheapest ways to loose weight. All the other gimmicky things out there that cost money are scams. But, you're a smart guy, so I'm sure you already knew this.

  5. @Kim Thanks

    @Pope Thanks as well, but actually I'm majorly shit when it comes to this. I'm taking a lot of advice from Jessie who knows about it. Basically I am just improving my diet and trying to exercise more, but I tend to also overdo the exercise and put my body in an even worse condition, plus I'm also a terrible cook. But I can do it, I know I can.

  6. Honestly I don't expect you to pass it on, I have seen a few other awards that got passed around so much they kinda end up meaning nothing. I really only did it this time because I wanted a chance to promote the blogs I chose to my readers.

    I sympathise about the dieting, I could really do with losing a few stone - over the last few years I've been getting steadily fatter. I just have no willpower, I start a diet but after a couple of weeks it goes out the window. My goal was originally to lose what I wanted before I go to India- I said that when we booked it three months ago. I'm still the same size now, and we go in about 10 weeks.
    If you hear about a beached whale in Goa that'll be me.

  7. im always amazed where you take the time to write all that....

  8. @Dirtycowgirl Have fun in India, I doubt I could go there, way to hot for me. I passed on the first couple of awards I get, and every time I get a new one then I try to do what it says, but after that, I'm like "I already did that". Plus I see them as chain letters, and I don't like those things. I want to lose way more than a few stone, I think I have to about half my weight. It's also nice talking to someone who knows what a stone is :P

    @Mekkor I'm always amazed that people are amazed.

  9. Congrats on your award! You deserve it. I'll be the typical girl and say that although I have a lot of clothes, I never have anything decent to wear :P

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Hazel Thanks :) The simple solution to your problem is to wear nothing and look decent >_> Or just realise that you look good no matter what you're wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Congrats, it's a well written blog.

    ReplyDelete
  12. wedding are always romantic~ ^_^
    it's not the suit, it's how you wear it!
    hey you should do a weight loss count! like put a counter or something on your blog so we could see your progress...

    anyway... sorry i changed my url... i didn't know it would turn out into a giant mess! ~_~
    here's my new url

  13. Congrats on the award! And congrats to your sister on her getting engaged:)

  14. @Angry Lurker Thanks :)

    @PeeVee Thanks ^^

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Indistinctive Writer I'm going to wear it with style and remove it at roughly midnight as long as I'm not still partying lol. But I will more than likely wear it again. I've always wanted a suit but they're expensive, and with the weight loss I wasn't wanting to invest in something like that, so this solves all my problems lol. As for some kinda weight loss counter, this place is cluttered enough as it is, but I suppose I might post updates on the success I'm having, you know, when I start having some.

    ReplyDelete
  16. What there are actually people who tell other people where to sit? Pfffft, you are too easily pleased.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Fang I'm more pleased that I get to wear a suit rather than I get to tell people where to sit. But that is pretty cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the wearing of the suit is the most important part. Very Seinfeld-ian! Or is it Larry-Davidian?

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Copyboy I was thinking more Barney Stinson-ian.

  20. Grats on another award!

    You work on weight loss, I'll work on weight gain.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @DWei Thanks :) I think we might be able to find someone crazy enough to take the fat out of me, and stick it into you, this could solve both our problems. As odd as it is, I have no trouble maintaining weight, or even gaining it (as I've managed to prove) but losing it is being a bitch.

  22. I never got to do anything at my brother's wedding

    ReplyDelete
  23. Being an usher is alright. YOu look good and don't have to be in nearly as many pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  24. being an usher will be the best; you'll get time to mack on all the honeys!

    ReplyDelete
  25. How does your sister know Jesse?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats on the award, been an usher before, you do get to latch on to all the single women, which can work for you too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congratulations for the award!

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Adam just have your own, and you get to do everything :P

    @Post-It-Poster Thanks a lot :)

    @AllensTesch lol good I don't like pictures, but I am going to want some of me in a badass suit.

    @Kid Shuffle Here's hoping!

    @Bersercules They went to college together and they've chatted, and they only realised they were talking about the same person when my sister said she was going to a wedding (our cousins) and Jessie said that I was going to a wedding too, and it hit them.

    @Pat Hatt Thanks :) and yes I'm kinda hoping that might happen lol.

    @My 2 Pesos Thanks a lot :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Should be fun being an usher. I was one for my sister's wedding. nice, low pressure gig.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Noah Homola Seems pretty low pressure yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wish you luck in accomplishing your goal of getting slim/ripped up for that wedding. Remember to drink lots of water and listen to metal while working out. thats my motto

    ReplyDelete
  32. @MRanthrope Thanks for that :) That's exactly what I do lol, I think I'm still not drinking enough water though. But I do listen to metal, things with hard, heavy beats that keeps you moving.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Intredasting Blog Thankies :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cacti are pretty low maintenance. Try one of those.

  36. @Henry Yeah but I'm likely to prick myself a lot, or one of the cats is likely to lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congrats on receiving the award too sir! I didn't pass it either hahaha
    Also congrats for your sis getting married, it must feel pretty good.
    Regarding your dirty little secrets, come on man, take care of yourself, buy some nice clothes, groom yourself, look good, feel good. You are planning to lose weight, get a makeover, i know it sounds shallow, but you will feel so much better. Working on the outside, can make you feel better on the inside.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Haha I never pass them now. It feels good yeah. It's not that shallow, that is one of my intents, my insecurities and everything stem mostly from my appearance, because I'm a teenage girl. Kidding. But I'm so poor I have to smell food at the store because I can't afford it. Alright it's not that bad, but I have no spare money for clothes or anything. The very small amount I make here (I won't even be getting any money next month) usually goes straight to my dad, and he's quite happy to buy me t-shirts, they be cheap but not trousers. I don't like asking him for money. But yes, I hope to feel good both inside and out. As for grooming, there isn't a lot you can do with hair like mine.

  39. Weddings are always fun. Congrats on the award and good luck slimming down for the wedding!

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Danjor Thanks I think I'm really going to need it lol.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, what a small world. Very cool about your sister and Jesse.

    Regarding the weight loss, good thing you have so much time until the wedding. I always tend to yo-yo or rebound right after when its rushed. Slow and steady is the key!

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Ipenka they live pretty close to eachother really, so it shouldn't be that unlikely but it still took my by surprise. Thanks for the advice.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't like to dress like this.. I wouldn't like the job either. :/
    But good for you I guess. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Bob you don't like suits? It's about time you did something I disapproved of lol. But yes this is very good for me. Very.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Mark: Yeah, I don't like this type of conformity.
    I also think it's just a cheap way to pretend to being "classy".

    Have fun though. I guess it's just not for everyone. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bob: Eh, I'll get to wear a suit, that's all I really care about. If I had the body I would be wearing suits a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  47. A huge article, but a very interesting read. I do look forward to your next update and post because you have a unique writing style!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congratulations on the award that I forgot to add!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd be nervous if I had to be an usher

    ReplyDelete
  50. @Jason almost every update is like this, but I tend to stick to one subject, today though is just a lot of pictures, it could be a letdown

    @Shaw The power of the suit shall allow me to persevere. Though I am a bit nervous yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hooray! Congratulations on getting the award! You totally deserve it.. I dig your blog, too! :p

    Aww, my name's not on your list..Can't grab it, then. :P

    Oh, I'm positive your blog will still be up and running next year. Can't wait for that wedding post.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. @Leah Thanks :) That list is out of date and I've been meaning to update it really.
