Snapple “Real Fact” #894. Seems like the past few days, I’ve been blogging with a diet Snapple iced tea on the floor next to me, the cap of which revealed a new “fact” … if that keeps up, I won’t ever have to worry about finding a post title again! Heh.
I am saddened to report that I am just as itchy as ever. I took along antihistamines with me today when I went to work, but I couldn’t actually use them, because I was so exhausted already that doing so would most definitely have just put me right to sleep!
In other random picture news, try to contain your shock…
The scale is just in the picture by freakish coincidence… I am happy to report that I did not, in fact, use it. (On that topic — I am so tired of feeling so… bulbous all the time. Seriously. How long am I supposed to put up with that?!)
Now that I think of it, today actually proved to be a pretty boring day. I realized that I spend way too much time at work… I come home, go to sleep, and before I know it I’m back at work again. This is a very depressing concept. Maybe I’m just really really bad at managing my time, but how do people manage to have both a job and a “life”?!
The hibachi steakhouse has been officially removed from the table as an option for a get-together with my friends. Now it looks like we’re leaning towards a barbecue. (A late-night barbecue. AHHH!) Someone asked me if I’d eat a veggie burger if it’s made on the same grill as meat… I’m frazzled enough at the notion, and I really don’t want to worry about that right now, so I just told her that the whole point of this is for us to be spending time with one another, and she shouldn’t concern herself with what I will / won’t eat. Besides, we’re thinking of making it a potluck anyway. Why oh why oh why does the world revolve around food…
Speaking of food, some Various Victuals from today:
These bars are really growing on me … when I first tasted them I thought they were kind of weird, but I like them now. (Good thing, too, since I have a case of each flavor!! :p)
Can you use the term “polyploidy” for grapes? … I’ve only ever heard it used in reference to strawberries! I have no idea who bought these grapes or where they came from, but they were just kind of … eh. Oh well. Better luck next time!
I’m still working on finishing off my last package of tempehtations… I had a cute little acorn squash lying around, so I roasted it with some teriyaki sauce (okay, soy sauce with Splenda… whatever) and ground ginger. Forgot about it while it was in the oven, of course, and so it got kind of … well-done. I couldn’t decide whether to make a salad or a wrap, and, as you know — when in doubt, do both!
In the wrap (which was clearly on the grill for way too long!): spinach, roasted acorn squash, tempehtations
In the salad: romaine, roasted acorn squash, tempehtations, Asian dressing
Tomorrow is a fast day… (A religious fast day, not an “I have decided I am too fat to be eating” fast day!) I haven’t decided yet whether I am fasting or not. Technically, since it isn’t one of the “major” fasts, I don’t have to. And contrary to popular belief, I actually don’t like fast days. Twisted logic behind that, because it’s solely due to the fact that once you start fasting, it means you’re going to have to break it eventually, and that is the part that I hate. But that’s another story entirely. It just makes me feel really guilty, I guess, to even be ruminating on whether or not I’m going to fast, because why am I so damn special that I can pig out while everyone else around me is sweltering and not able to drink?? Though that’s just the most basic of reasons. I feel like I go through the same argument with myself every time this comes up (between four and six times a year!) — you’d think I would have gotten over this by now. I guess not.
Have a happy Thursday!
