…I wonder what comprises the other 1%… water??
First things first, to get important business out of the way. Look what I found!!
PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY LARABAR!!
The calorie count on this is higher than I’d like, but considering that I’ve been going to Whole Foods practically daily for the past month to find this, I think I can manage to overlook it for the moment. Review to follow once I’ve tried it! I was very disappointed to see that the German Chocolate Cake Jocalat has coconut in it, though… I knew the Tropical Fruit Tart did, but not the German Chocolate Cake! I think I prefer Jocalat over regular Larabars… oh well, plain old chocolate will do. :p
- vanilla yogurt, fiber one, skippy natural pb
Maybe it’s me, but I can’t seem to mix peanut butter into anything. I warmed it in the microwave beforehand, and while that did give it a more “melty” texture, it did not become drippy enough for me to really swirl it into anything!! I guess this is where PB2 would come in handy… but unless someone wants to make a donation to the worthy cause ;), that isn’t happening, because I don’t want to buy four jars of it before I’ve even tried it. Any tips on how to stir peanut butter into something else??
waffles with chocolate syrup and banana
Note to self: in the future, heat up waffles in the microwave, as the toaster oven makes them impossibly crispy. How do you heat your frozen waffles?
I went on a trip to the pet store… a very irritating trip due to traffic! The more I drive / take public transportation, the more I am convinced that the best way of getting from point A to point B is with your own two feet… anyway, the ammonia level was fine, which I guess means whatever I did worked. So I got another algae eater (on the right), plus a little catfish (on the left, in the bottom corner of the bag) to replace the one that died last week. Plus a whole bunch of filter inserts and random assorted crap… this is why we call the fish “little tax deductions”!
In other not-so-exciting news today, I got into a little collision. Not a big deal, both of our cars were fine, not even a scratch… which is especially great because I don’t care to share this little incident with my parents, and if the car was damaged, I’d have to do that, considering that it is their car, and all. But somehow this turns into a session of “I am an idiot” … there are lots and lots and lots of people out there behind the wheel who definitely should not be driving. Maybe I’m one of them! So what if I don’t insist on going twenty-five miles per hour over the speed limit and cutting people off left, right, and center? If the end result is the same, does it really matter?? (Of course, none of this self-recrimination means I’m going to stop driving. I don’t really think I’m a danger on the road, which is the only thing that would make me give it up… I just feel like an idiot, is all.)
I was telling one of my co-workers about what happened to me on the subway platform the other day, and he wanted to know A) if she punched me in the face and B) if I hit her back. I said that no, she didn’t, because if she had, I wouldn’t care if she’s twenty or thirty years older than I am — I definitely would have hit her back. I mean, way back when I took martial arts classes, it was with the intent of self-defense, and this doesn’t exactly qualify because I hardly view a rabid spinster as a threat to my physical well-being… but I’m sorry, I am NOT okay with random morons assaulting me!!
Good thing about today: for some inexplicable reason, the air conditioning was off in my office. The hallways were frigid. My office temperature was close to perfect. The bad thing about today: I was so exhausted that I was practically dizzy from it, and if the end of the day hadn’t come when it did I just may have passed out!! This is not a joke, I really have to do something about it…
Staying in bed until noon tomorrow sounds about right.
I really must finalize my vacation plans very soon, because J is leaving at the end of next week (YAY!!), and I need him to sign off on my vacation days first. I really, really, really, really hate planning things… the logistics drive me batty. I need my own personal travel agent!!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
