The Great Mental Health Day, '05

I woke up this morning, thought to myself, Crap, it's only Monday, and promptly decided that this would be a perfect day to just not go to work. And it was so. I very, very rarely slack off and just not go in to the office without a really good excuse, but I'm a firm believer in the occasional mental health day, so that's what we're calling this. The Great Mental Health Day, '05. What do you think? Catchy, no?
It amazes me how staying at home during the work week lends itself to wanting to eat every single last thing in the house. So far I've had two veggie dogs, a protein shake and almost an entire box of reduced fat Wheat Thins, and I've only been awake, like, two hours. Alas, I should perhaps never eat anything again, as I went to the tailor this morning with my bridesmaid dress, and it did not go well. I don't know if I've gone into the saga that is my bridesmaid dress, but suffice it to say, the wedding is in six weeks and I don't think I can wear the dress. Basically, the dress was made for a porn star, and a porn star I'm not. The boob area is giant. Giant. And I am not lacking so much in the boob department, so I'm talking about a girl with a healthy size EEE would look fucking fabulous in this dress. Also? The waist is about 26 inches. Yeah. Ahem. Not so much a 26. With triple E boobage. So my tailor, whom I love, took one look at it and said that I need to return this dress immediately because it is, in his words, mishapen. Unfortunately the company where we purchased our dresses doesn't do exchanges or refunds, so I'm totally, totally fucked. I have no idea what to do, but I've decided that since this is The Great Mental Health Day, '05, I'm not going to think on it.
The Peanut and I went to our friend's house for a Superbowl party (um, who played? who won? who cares.) yesterday, and it was a good time. There was way, way too much food, and JR made this fantastic chili dip thing with cream cheese that is to die for. I made my famous jello pretzel crack (shut up. It's totally good) which was very well received. My friend April announced to all of us that she just got a job at Rutgers and is moving to New Jersey in three weeks (she just wrapped up her PhD). This is amazing, amazing news for her, but she is going to be missed, not least of all by her boyfriend, who has to finish up his PhD before following her to NJ. So it was a bittersweet day.
OK then. All of my DVR'd stuff is calling my name, not to mention three new Netflix movies. There is much to do!

My sister-in-law had a similarly nightmarish experience with her dress for my wedding. It was about four sizes too big for her. It didn't even look like the same dress after it was taken in.

Have you looked on eBay? You might be able to find the same dress in a different, more managable size. You'd still have two dresses, but it would be cheaper than buying a new one at full price.
