Vacation time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My plane leaves for OR in 11 hours. I can't wait to see my mom! I'm trying not to bounce too much while I'm at work today, for fear of totally annoying all of my co-workers, but it's going to be difficult.
I'm reading a really good book right now: Elegance, by Kathleen Tessaro. I usually go for books by authors that I've already read, or that people have recommended, but I saw this book at the library and it looked enticing. When I started reading it, I knew immediately that the main character was eating disordered, and sure enough, halfway through she starts talking about starving herself and throwing up after dinner. I can spot an eating disorder a mile away. :) Do you see yourself doing that, Nikki? I'll be walking down the street going, yup, serial dieter. And she's anorexic. He's bulimic. The scary thing is, I'm usually right. I know part of it is because I've done so much research and I know the signs, but I think a lot of it is intuition; when you've been there, you know what it looks like.
I'll post again when I get to OR. I'm looking forward to seeing everything, especially my kitties.

i can totally spot people as well, anna. part of having an eating disorder is that you're constantly looking at other people's bodies, the way they eat, the way they move, the shape of their bones . . . it's a sickness in itself.
