|Not the exact chair but close.|
We went out of town this weekend and hit this pub and the only place to sit was on their cold patio where there were just plastic chairs. I wanted to say "I'll wait 20 minutes for a booth thanks." (There's a phrase my uber fat self never thought she'd utter! Before it would've been "I'll wait 45 minutes for an armless chair table, please" or more likely "let's get takeout.")
Just the act of sitting down requires concentration and thigh strength. There's always that initial hover, then light lowering of your butt onto the seat and then that "settling" of your load on the plastic legs. There is always that little jolt on the legs of the chair. It's the moment of reckoning where it decides if it's going to hold your girth or drop yo fat azz in front of 110 people. You just pray you don't end up on YouTube with the sound of your body hitting the floor and scream of terror and "nooooooo God, not like this!" slowed down and auto-tuned into a song that'll get you on Ellen.
I'm happy to report I ate me fish n' chips in the upright position for the entire meal but man, I don't think I'll ever be comfortable in those things.
We hit up the Life is Good store. I love the shirts there. I found a cool one on clearance...
That is so me and no the fact it's February shan't deter me from wearing it any time of year. If I get a paper cut I bleed red and green. I think I'm going to turn on some Christmas music and fire up the Yule Log.
Sunday was grocery day. I was so not in the mood. I had a bowl of cereal before we left and because we were lollygagging and I was picking up some extra stuff for new recipes, I got really hungry by the time we hit the last grocery store. Nutritionally void things were popping into the cart. Like these...

I haven't tried them yet but I'll report back. I have a feeling they're delicious.
What did you do this weekend?
