Weekend Update: Hair, Friends, and Blogger bugs

Well, thusfar I've had an excellent weekend.

Today I went to lunch with a handful of friends and it was really nice to catch up with all of them, even if it was only for a little while.  We chatted mainly about our other friends and it was a split between being elated for the ones that are doing well and the ones that were worrying us post-graduation.  Conversation aside, I enjoyed some yummy macaroni from Panera Bread.  I love macaroni. So much.  Almost as much as I love bacon.

Rebekka and I are hoping to plan another get-together type thing for the art girls again around Halloween.  Although, now that I think about it, Thanksgiving might be a better time for us to have another party.

After our lunch, Rebekka and I went to visit her dad at his shop and the first thing he said was, "Lizzi, IS THAT YOU?!"  He then proceeded to shower me with compliments, which I received very awkwardly because I don't know how to properly accept them other than saying "Thanks!" in a really tiny voice.  He also told me he was really proud of me and how dedicated I was to the Air Force and getting in shape.  I never really notice how toned I've gotten until people point it out to me.  Yay for working out!

Also, I decided to straighten my hair for the first time this summer, and I didn't realize how long my hair had gotten!

The flash made the purple in my hair look more pinkish, but yeah.  My hair reaches down to my lower back.  I feel like a mermaid.

In other news, Blogger has been seriously bugging out on me.  Anytime I try to comment on a Blogger blog or even view my own dashboard it sends me into an endless redirection loop.  Apparently I'm not the only one having issues, but Blogger has yet to address the issue.  It's a fairly new bug that's only been bothering me since this weekend.

Anyway, I'm posting this by email, and I'm somewhat considering switching blogging platforms if Blogger doesn't address this issue within the next week. If anyone has any suggestions to an alternative platform (aside from Tumblr) I'd love to hear them!


  1. Well Wordpress is the main alternative. When I got stuck on that blogger loop I started reading blogs through Google Reader, and I made new posts by clicking on the "new post" button on my blog itself. The loop problem has been fixed for me now, and it's sad it's still affecting other people. It's lasted a while though. Google are terrible for fixing bugs.

    Okay I absolutely love your hair. That's all I can really say about it besides I'm madly jealous. We also never really notice the changes in ourselves. My friends have told me I look a bit thinner but I don't really see it. I think it's hard not to have become fit and toned after everything you put yourself through.

    1. Well, I got on today and everything seems to be working fine, so I'm glad the Blogger team got things sorted out and fixed.

  2. Is Panera Bread that place that does the bread bowl soups? Oh man do I ever enjoy bread bowls, I don't even know why, it's like the most ridiculous concept ever.

    1. I think they have that as an option... I don't know. I usually go there for the macaroni (weird, I know).

  3. I love Macaroni! I'm jelous of your hair! I want long mermaid hair! mine is shoulder length right now but I really need it trimmed :S Go working out! I'm headed for the gym tomorrow :) x
