Thank you from the Zoo on January 23, 2007 12:46 am
For my over 40 hours of donated time in 2005 and 2006 for Boo at the Zoo, today I was awarded with a thank you note from the Zoo and a gold colored metal Magnetic Hill Zoo name tag with my name engraved, just like the name tags their staff wears.
Wearing it gets me into the zoo for free at any time with a guest, a 25% discount at the gift shop and a staff discount on food at the two food outlets. Pretty freaking sweet. I almost bought an annual pass to the zoo last year because it's my favorite place to go. Now I can go for free! I think that'll be my exercise of choice in 2007. Going to the Zoo. :)

Life: The Musical on January 22, 2007 11:35 pm
This isn't brought on by anything in particular, just a realization that I've come to as I've been growing and changing lately and discovering myself that I've never put into words before.
There are a lot of hard things we all have to deal with.
Weight loss is hard work.
Waiting is hard work.
Relationships are hard work.
Life is hard work.
This is really just a reminder to myself of a very important truth.
I AM WORTH IT.
The wait and the hard work I put into this transformation isn't wasted energy, it's step after step of this catterpillar toward building a cocoon and to emerge as the sexiest damned male butterfly I can be.
I need to remind myself that I don't need to settle for anything less than I deserve, be it in life, relationships, whatever. I'm worth knowing, I'm worth treating with respect, I'm worth loving.
We all have a part to play in this crazy Broadway production called Life, and we all have something to contribute, I don't care who you are. No one can say they have no purpose, you just need to find it. I haven't found mine specifically other than one simple purpose....
To be Jay Ryan.
When the final curtain goes down and I've taken my bows, I want to leave the stage knowing that I've given the audience my all. I've made them laugh and smile and that I meant something to some of them.

Over Christmas, but a LOT less than I would have thought. I'm back up to 399. So only 2 pounds or so and still not back in the dreaded 400's
