Those of you who know me on Facebook have heard about my opinion of insomnia… I was exhausted last night and in bed before 11.00 … and then, of course, I just could. not. fall. asleep. I thought it might be too warm, so I turned on the ceiling fan. Nope, still couldn’t sleep. I refused to turn on the air conditioner — it was only 60 degrees outside! I tried a sleep mask. Didn’t help. I decided to take a little walk to the bathroom… and once I got there, my eyelids felt like they were made out of lead. Back to bed I went, but I was wide awake again. I am telling you, my bed is the biggest upper out there! It was nearing 1.00 AM and I was ready to pull my hair out, so I decided to be useful and went down to the kitchen. I was pressing tofu and mixing a marinade at 1.00 AM. Isn’t that lovely?
While the preparation time wasn’t ideal, I was rather fond of the turnout.
It is really, really lovely to be able to incorporate protein into my diet again. Case in point:
Ooooh, I must share this very, very exciting moment! I was griping about this exactly a month ago… look at what I found in Whole Foods this morning!
Let’s take a closer look at this, shall we?
Eeeeee! (Insert manic squeal here.) If this is not completely awesome, I will be very upset. 😉
I had elaborate plans involving schoolwork this evening… but somehow, that never wound up happening. First I went to my sister’s house to pick up some of the things we had stored in her freezer over Pesach. Then I had to do some things to prepare for Shabbos. Then I made muffins — because, well, that’s more important than schoolwork, right? I’m not going to show them to you until I’ve verified that they are non-toxic. 😉
And I am actually still in the process of making challah. The dough is rising now. At least, I hope it is — that’s what it’s supposed to be doing. There is an element of subterfuge involved here, which will be revealed once the process is complete. I hope that this is a more successful endeavor than last year’s! (I used to bake challah every week, but now I only do it the week after Pesach.) I used a new recipe, but I doubt I will be repeating it, since it is far too labor-intensive and time-consuming.
When am I going to do the work that needs to get done?!?!?! (Of course, I could just take a page out of my co-worker’s book and “forget” to show up at work, which would free me up to concentrate on school. Argh.)
Oh, I haven’t posted an earring photo in a little while.
Green to match a green day? It was gorgeous outside. I love hot weather. (It wasn’t even really that hot today, but compared to a couple of weeks ago? I’ll take it!)
Time to go check up on my dough, I suppose. Which means I am not going to verbally vomit… even though I’d love to.
Have a lovely Friday.

(Ha… am I insolent, then?!)
