She threatened to take me shopping and buy me more jeans...
I think that "finals" is an iron-clad excuse to wear the comfiest clothes you own.

Time with my mother has been surprisingly...pleasant.

She's been nothing but extremely nice and generous to me and Brandon. The night we came in she took us out for BBQ dinner and didn't say a WORD about how much I ate or what I ate. She only commented on herself being full and had me load up a to-go box with left overs and never said anything about the amount of food I had or what I looked like. Afterwords we stopped at Meijers to get groceries and she ended up paying for a majority of it because she wanted some of it herself but never ended up eating it. She refused to take any money for it and today bought a few more little things for Brando and I to have that she's not taking payment for. Brando and I haven't been grocery shopping in about two weeks because money was tight so the little odds and ends she got us is really going to help us until Friday when we can go get some big things.

Today at lunch I mentioned that I haven't had a cheeseburger in a long time and she told me I should order some, didn't comment on how 'bad' it was for me or how much of it I ate. Not a single peep. At the stores we where pretty much shopping for other people but last night she bought me a new Hello Kitty PJ set and when discussing with me what size to get she did not say anything negative about me getting and XL. She didn't make any comments on the size, on how much bigger I am then before (I would normally get a size Large but she'd normally say I was 'much bigger'), or anything like that..She just told me she wanted me to get new PJs.

The past two days she hasn't said a single unkind thing about me or Brando or anything like that. Not a word on what I eat, what I look like, or what I weight. The only thing that bothered me is she tried to say my occasional acid reflux was a sign of something horrible or something like that but I shot her down and told her to lay off. She didn't say it was related to my WEIGHT though, so at least she didn't try to take that route.

I actually had a good time out with her today at the mall where I bought Brando a big wall scroll of Twilight Princess that has Link and Wolf-Link on it, a Chopper figurine from One Piece, and a pair of work khakis because the pair he has are covered in ink stains and he only owns the single pair. I am hoping I can still get him the Marvel vs Capcom complete works art book, it's basically $40 on BN.com but I can order it for $29.99 on amazon.com and get free shipping. So I am planning on ordering that soon too.

Saturday around 4pm Brando and I are meeting my mom, sister and her husband, and my brother and his kids for dinner. She is spending the night again but she leaves for the airport at 2pm on Sunday so it's not so bad and if she's still as nice as she's been the past two days I don't feel bothered at all by her staying.

I think jeans are just slightly higher than yoga pants in terms of formality.

This is my point exactly! 99% of the time I wear jeans, a skirt or a dress when I leave the house. Let me wear my nice, properly fitting, comfy yoga pants that 1% of the time in peace. I've been typing all day - yoga pants so much more comfy than my jeans to sit on my bed in.

And honestly, no one cares what I wear to class.

I think you could rock a pair of yoga pants.

Yeah, I hardly ever wear my jeans indoors. Usually as soon as I step in I change into my pajama pants or yoga pants!

And I'll be sure to bring my Dipper hap, because trucker hats are still cool? Right? Right? Ah who am I kidding, it's PAX East in Boston, all I need is a gaming hoodie or something related to one of their subpar sportsball teams and I'll meet the standard.

EDIT: I am bringing Smile/Fun/whatever-dip to this con now. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG RIGHT?

Turns out that toe may not have an ingrown nail in it after all. But whatever the piece of skin is that's hanging off to the side of my toenail, damn it's sensitive. That's what the problem is.

Woohoo! Finished my secret santa gift (still not perfect to my never-satisfied self, but now I can only pick out one thing I didn't like, instead of four). And I think I received mine already- I got a "pick your package up" card in the mail. I'll find out tomorrow!

Mine didn't take long to make, I just kept redoing it because it didn't look right the first few times.
