I stumbled across that quote today and I liked it, so I decided to use it and save myself the aggravation of coming up with a clever post title, since creativity clearly is not my forte!
Pictures first, words second!
I saw this on Jaime’s blog yesterday, which reminded me that I had one in my basement… so I decided to dig it up.
Yeah, okay, a lot of pictures for one silly bar. I’ll stop now. My take on this bar: it had a nice soft texture, and the cherries gave it a bit of a chewy consistency. That said, it didn’t taste like cherries; in fact, it didn’t taste like much of anything at all! It wasn’t bad… it just wasn’t good, either. So I’m neither yay-ing nor nay-ing this.
I tried to get a picture of my “track marks,” but I’m right-handed, and most of them are on my right arm… and my left hand cannot take a steady picture for anything. But I tried. Please note: the purple in the upper left is a bruise from a needle. The four dots in the shape of a triangle right below that are not; they are “beauty marks,” though I fail to see what is so beautiful about them, but anyway… if you look veeery closely, you might be able to see three more punctures in the crook of my elbow. I didn’t bruise at all besides for that one tiny one… he was surprised, but that’s why I prefer to have him do it over my doctor!! Well, that and avoiding a three-hour wait. Can you imagine if I’d sat and waited three hours for THAT?! AHHHH!
I conducted a little “experiment” today… for no particular reason whatsoever, I bought a can of stir-fry vegetables earlier in the week. It had baby corn, water chestnuts, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots. (I hate bamboo shoots… the smell alone makes me gag… so would someone please explain to me why I eat them anyway?!) I steamed the vegetables in a microwave steamer basket, and topped that with vegetarian stuffed cabbage in tomato sauce. Apparently, I should have seasoned the vegetables beforehand, because as it turned out, there wasn’t all that much sauce! Oh, well… live and learn, as always.
Words now! …
I had a lovely swim tonight… the pool wasn’t frigid, for once! It was 72 degrees (as opposed to the 69 that seems to have become the norm)… what a difference three degrees makes! It was a bit chilly at first, but once I got moving, it was pretty close to perfect. 🙂
However, I had a somewhat odd encounter in the locker room… there was a girl / woman there who was one of those chatty types, and she was rambling and yapping about all these random things. Keep in mind I’ve never met this person before in my life, so it was all rather strange! Then she suddenly said to me, “You’re so damn skinny! I’m so damn jealous!” I actually didn’t have much trouble just shaking it off, which was pleasantly surprising, but I am rather perplexed. Why do people think it is okay to make comments like this?! I mean, seriously. Just imagine what would happen if I approached an obese person and said, “You’re so dman fat! I’m so damn glad I don’t look like you!” Because, really, aren’t they just two ends of the same spectrum?? Either way, I just ignored her, because really… how are you supposed to answer a comment like that?!
I have been vindicated, because I was out-bid for those baseball tickets. Let the search continue… I wish they would just appear on my doorstep. That would be kind of nice! 😉
Ever since I’ve had my current job, my mom has been coming into the city in the summer (she teaches during the year, so she has some free time for these couple of months) to take me out to lunch. Which pretty much means the same thing as every day for me, except that she’s paying, so Hugh Jass comes to town. She asked me what day would work… for a bunch of reasons that I won’t bother getting into here, I said tomorrow. She decided to come on Monday. She always does this… she asks my opinion, and if whatever I say coincides with what she was going to do anyway, she lets me think it was all my idea. Otherwise, she just ignores me. It is so profoundly irritating!! Rawwr.
I’ve actually been a bit introspective today, but it’s just too late for me to delve into that right now… beauty sleep is a must! (How sad… it’s only ten o’clock!) I had such an exciting day, though, it’s bound to be tiring. (Note the heavy sarcasm.) Well, actually, it started with a fight on the train — not that I was involved in it! — but that was about the most unusual thing to happen. The next most exciting thing has yet to occur… that will be me crawling into my bed and falling asleep.
Have a happy Hump day! J is probably showing up for one day tomorrow. Me = not happy about this.
