Unlike yesterday, today really was beautiful! Until it started to rain again at 4.00, anyway. (I do have to beg forgiveness for that post title, BTW. Sorry.)
With the return of Almond Dream, I was able to try a new cereal today:
Yes, it is a kids’ cereal. Whatever. It was a bit crunchier than I was expecting, but otherwise tasted very similar to Peanut Butter Pows… tempered by a cocoa flavor, much like Chocolate Cheerios. I realize this is of no use to you if you haven’t tried either of those cereals, but you should. 😉
Shockingly, I managed to get through to my endocrinologist today. I didn’t ask him about the bone density test, because I am a moron who did not originally notice that under all the coding on the prescription, he wrote, “Bone Densitometry.” But I did ask him about the dosage of the medication… and, I quote, he said, “My mistake.” Um. Yikes. Glad I cleared that up. And then this evening my pill cutter decided to break on me. Nice.
Kabocha roasted with paprika, chili powder, and garlic powder; edamame. I was kicking myself for not buying those mini kabochas I saw a couple of weeks ago… which I did not buy based on the reasoning that I have a plethora of squash at home already. At last count: two each of butternut, acorn, and delicata, plus a spaghetti squash.
Let’s talk about these brown rice tortillas for a moment, okay?
It says 6 count on the package. So would someone care to explain to me why, if I’ve used three of them, there are only two left? I am getting a little paranoid about thinking that I ate two of them, thinking it was one!! I made a “pizza” on Friday, a wrap on Sunday, and then another “pizza” today (see below) — that equals three, right?!
I wanted to use a squash base, but considering I had already eaten quite a fair amount of squash today, I went with barbecue sauce instead. Because pasta sauce seemed too repetitive, I guess. I was worried that it would get way too soggy and completely fall apart, but that didn’t happen at all. (There’s barbecue sauce, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and chili-powdered tofu piled on the tortilla. Just FYI.)
Guess what else I did today? I’m sure you’re all totally fascinated, but I bought a new swimsuit! One day I should show you how many I already have, so that you understand how completely unnecessary this was, but…
The reasoning behind my choice: I forgot that I don’t like wearing white swimsuits; white + wet = transparent! And I felt oddly more exposed in the monokini. Probably because it was meant for someone who is seven feet tall, and it bagged in a bunch of weird places. And because I expect to feel exposed in a bikini, but not in a one-piece. Actually, for all I know, this doesn’t fit properly either; I have never bought such a swimsuit in my life. Due to a traumatic event involving a halter-top suit when I was ten, I have stuck exclusively to tank suits… with the exception of one bikini that I’ve used under my wet suits until now, but that’s a boy-short bottom. I can’t wear shorts with these — that would cover up the butt! 😉 This is rather anxiety-provoking, actually. I am so not the type who can carry off something like this, but whatever, I’ll have to find a way!
On the topic of swimsuits, I had the best. swim. ever. today. The water was deliciously warm, and my goggles did not leak at all, nor did they fog up much. The latter is extremely important in helping to avoid collisions with Bobbing Ladies. I could not get out of the pool… but then realized that my brother, who was picking me up, would be kind of pissed if I didn’t. Boo.
Tomorrow is my last day of classes — yay! I’ve already handed in my Assignment from Hell, which definitely could have used more work but I ran out of steam for that. And we have a group presentation tomorrow, too, which we haven’t even finished cobbling together. We are awesome.
And one of my new fish died. Double boo. Triple boo: another one looks like it’s developing a fungal infection on its tail. Oh, dear.
But … eighteen days until I go on vacation!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀
Happy Hump Day!
