According to metro, this is my horoscope for today: It’s one of those days things aren’t likely to go as you planned. Uhhh… kind of a day late, wouldn’t you say?? Today was definitely a much better day than yesterday.
For starters, there was this unfamiliar blindingly bright thing in the sky.
That alone was an improvement over yesterday, when I haphazardly threw together this salad at a crazy late hour.
Romaine, delicata squash, tofu steak, and zucchini. Good news: that was the last of the tofu steak. Bad news: that was my last delicata squash. And I didn’t even have the luxury of roasting it. 😦
I also tried these “American Fries.”
My first thought upon opening the bag was, Not very generous, are they?! But its appearance is deceptive, because as I was eating it, I kept wondering why it just wouldn’t end. They tasted similar to these veggie straws, but they were a lot drier. In a stick-to-your-molars kind of way. I get annoyed when I’m apprehensive about trying something, and then I do and it’s not amazing. Oh well!
Finally got my hands on some of this:
Lest you be under the mistaken assumption that I didn’t already have some… I did. But obviously I need to stockpile because whenever I want something, I can’t find it! (I’m kidding … partially. There actually is another reason why I’m buying so many, which has to do with Pesach, but I’m too lazy to explain it right now.)
On my lunch break, I took a little stroll and bought — shocker — a pair of earrings. Which I am not going to bother showing you because they will appear one day anyway, when I wear them.
And my mom went to the supermarket where I had seen this, so I asked her to pick up a tub for me:
Chocolate protein powder that does not have added sugars. Finally.
And I went swimming. I’m almost always the first one in the pool, because the “bobbing ladies” are busy lollygagging. I stepped in today and had only one word: Yum. It was 84 degrees (I think it was really more like 82, but whatever), which meant that I didn’t have to thrash about like a crazy person… I actually got to swim leisurely. What a novelty. And I apparently re-adjusted my goggles perfectly: they didn’t hurt, and they didn’t leak at all, so I emerged with mascara 100% intact. I am also a rocket scientist and figured out how to use my new nose plug properly. In short, it was wonderful, and that is a damn good thing, because I really needed it.
It also reminded me that I have yet another reason to stay away from razor blades… explaining such things is not fun. Especially since I don’t even have a cat! Since I’m always covered up except for when I’m in the pool, it’s easy to forget about that. I never really mention it on my blog, because it’s not exactly an issue for me anymore the way it was in the past; I used to carry my own (clean!) blades with me. Not to disenchant you about airport security, but I never had a problem carrying blades through, and all I was interested in was self-destruction. I shudder to think what could happen with people who are set on mass destruction … anyway. I don’t carry them anymore. Hopefully it isn’t an instance of absence makes the heart grow fonder.
I’m skipping my nutritionist appointment this week. This makes me kind of nervous — well, not missing it, exactly, but it’s too complicated for me to ramble about it now. Especially as I had my acupuncture appointment today, and I was poked in the face with a needle that will supposedly help me sleep. Can’t wait to see if that works!
Can’t forget the earrings of the day, can I? … Even though my computer is being a bitch and I just spent twenty minutes trying to get this picture up. I actually switched to my older laptop. Ugh.
Excuse my hair; it would not get out of my way.
$15.99/box. (I think it’s about a pound per box; there are four or five matzos in each one, if I recall correctly.)
Have a happy Hump day.
