When you get to the skydiving place, they weigh you. The tandem weight limit is 210 for the new jumper, so they want to make sure you + your tandem master isn't over the total limit. I hop on the scale and call my weight out to the gal writing my info down, because I am not self conscious. Hey, I've been busting my butt, right? So with clothes and heavy shoes I was at 135. No big.

Another girl came in to get weighed, and she had that "I'm being a daredevil for my boyfriend so he'll ask me to marry him" vibe about her. Now, I'm going to be bitchy, but I feel that I have the right (you will, too, I believe.) She's shorter than me, petite, but in that soft, no muscle tone kind of way. Flat chested. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just an observation I make. (Triangle legs with no definition.) I jokingly cover my eyes and back away, because let's face it: we girls don't like to advertise our weight.

She laughs a bit, then wags her finger at me and says, "Uh oh, you left your weight up here! Now I know that you're 135!"

The hell? Good thing I'm not conscientious about that. Then she says smugly, "I'm only 132. Ha."

I almost ALMOST said, "Well, boobs and muscle weigh more than little boy chests and flab. Also, you're two inches shorter than me, so..."

But I didn't, because I'm a fu*&ing lady. I mean, honestly. Who does that? And now, I'm going to go eat my delicious lunch after burning 760 calories in my workout. And then I'm booking jump #2 for the weekend after next. THAT IS HOW I ROLL.

[Off topic, I got an iPhone for my birthday, and guys, I'm so phone stupid it's not even funny. I wanted to trade in my blackjack for a Jitterbug. LOL. But I LOOOOVE it. Now I need apps! Isn't there one for Kindle? I got a facebook one, one for LJ, and... what else do I want? Teach me, oh wise, hip flist.]

You are a much calmer head than I. I would have said, "Bitch, when you've pushed out two kids, then we'll compare."

But that's me. And yay for technology!!! I can't help you there though as I'm madly in love with my Blackberry. *licks it* But I know people who LOVE their iPhones. (and they might even just LOVE their iphones if you know what I mean)

I went skydiving for the first time in June. I fucking LOVED it! Wish it wasn't so expensive though.

You are much more restrained than I ever could be. Though if life and chick flicks have taught me anything, he'll probably cheat on her for someone who weighs about 135 with much bigger boobs anyway.

HA! Agreed.
And then I would laff and laff at her, because I'm mean.

O.o

Now that's just rude. *shakes head* Good thing you're a lady. I might have been rude right back.

TOTALLY rude. And ridiculous. 3 pounds? And I'm taller than her with muscles? Dummy.

I think I was still shocked that she was saying what she was saying. I always expect people to be nice like I am, I still get shocked when they're not.

Get the one for Kindle and you'll be able to be connected AND entertained. Anywhere. Anytime. I've read 75 books on mine and don't have to find shelf space for any of them! Muwahahahahahahaha!

I love my iPhone SO MUCH. I mean. SO. MUCH. ::waves arms for emphasis::

Also? That bitch. ::smacks her for you::

OMG. I would have hit her. You're a better person than me. ;)

Way to drink the apple flavored Kool-Aid!!!!!!

Apps you must have:
LIGHTSABER (endless fun there)
Amazon has a Kindle app that is amazing
Shazam lets you know what song your listening to
Games: Sonic the Hedgehog, Flight Control, and Stick Wars are what I'm addicted to at the moment
Zippo Lighter and Flashlight
BBC Reader for news

My response when people try to argue is to immediately say, "You're right." It's fun to watch them deflate. :D

She laughs a bit, then wags her finger at me ...

and you didn't snap her neck?

I'm very proud of you. Because I would've.

What a total bitch. And yay! Second jump! Whoooooooooooot!

:D

The finger wag is what's sticking in my craw. All right, Nellie Olson, what the frak??

You + skydiving = awesome.

If she's insecure enough about her weight that she has to brag about being 3lbs under Random Fellow Customer, then I'd just feel sorry for her.

The iPhone is awesome. You need PhoneSaber. :) And, well, I'm not really that into apps, but I do like WeatherBug better than Apple's Weather.

Aug. 11th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
YAY!! It's totally awesome.

And seriously - talk about self esteem issues!

PhoneSaber, check. Oooh, something better than the Weather app that came with it, YES. Thanks for that!

It's not how much you weigh but how you wear it, innit?

I have apps for all of the major news sources (NYTimes, WSJ, HuffPost, MSNBC, etc). I also have Shazam, which is a free application that "listens" to music on the radio and then tells you who sings it. I also love epicurious's application (also free--all my apps are). And, I like urban spoon, and flickster, which finds movie theaters near where your phone is located and movie times (also has release dates for movies and dvds, etc.).

Oooh, someone else was telling me about Shazam, too. That's a must have. FLIXSTER! Thanks for those!

What a bitch! Who cares how much she weighs? She's completely insignificant.
stoney321
Aug. 11th, 2009 09:51 pm (UTC)
She's obviously insecure. I remember being like that (insecure, not a bitch) So glad I'm happy with myself.

Hee, I just got an iPhone as well!! If you like brain teaser games, there's a Brain Challenge app both in free and paid versions, and I think it's worth the 5.99. Twitter has a few apps, I'm using Twitterfone (free) and love it. New York Times has a free app. Google Earth is pretty awesome, I just downloaded that.

Oh, and if you already have songs on your computer, and want a pretty easy way of making/finding ringtones: http://audiko.net/ is pretty awesome. :D

Aug. 11th, 2009 09:53 pm (UTC)
OOOOOOOOH BRAIN TEASER APPS. Yes, please! I'm not a Twitter person, though. I just don't have that much to communicate, unless I can be long winded, lol. Google Earth, I forgot that one, thank you!!

The FUCK? That's hella rude! I am totally proud of you for weighing 135 (and you're not a short woman, either, are you?), that is amazing. Your bod is smokin'. You could weigh 150 and I'd still be impressed.

Isn't that breath taking? I kinda stood in one spot for a minute, rooted there by the audacity of it. And I dunno, is 5' 6" tall? Pretty average, I thought, but I'm not unhappy with how I look at all, so she had the wrong girl in her sights. :D

<3

Was she 12? Because that seriously sounds pre-teen.

You should be proud of your ladieness.
stoney321
Aug. 11th, 2009 09:55 pm (UTC)
How redonk of her, huh? (And because I know you'll laugh with me, she was shorter than me, had NO muscle tone at all. She had those tube legs that are the same from the top all the way down. Um, excuse me while I randomly flex my calves...) Hee.

?

huh? This wasn't directed at you, but to some woman that tried to make me feel bad about my weight. Which I don't, regardless of what the scale says.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
