Multiple choice quiz!
I did not post yesterday because:
A) I was swept away in a near-tornado
B) I was busy introducing my nutritionist to the wonder of good figs
C) I was scavenging for hidden treasures
D) I had too many things to do to get ready for Yom Kippur
E) All of the above
The answer, of course, is E. I didn’t actually realize until today just how lucky I am that a tree didn’t land on my head yesterday! I was fortunate enough to get stuck outside during the brunt of a crazy storm. My socks and shoes are still soaked through. I did explain to my nutritionist how to determine which figs will be awesome and which will not, and she saved the second one for her husband because they were both disappointed the last time they had figs; and on my way home, I stopped off at the supermarket and succumbed to the call of the pumpkin. I’m set for the season, I suppose! As for the Powerade, I’m actually drinking it now, but I needed a picture. 😉
Oh, yeah. I also went to buy some fish food. Apparently Petco has been renovated. Here are the “mascots” to tell you all about it.
Wow. Am I easily amused, or what?!…
I ate this salad yesterday.
And then I called my dentist and made an appointment, because as much as I’d like to plead ignorance, I really think I might have a cavity. Allow me to rephrase — when I was ten, I had a total crackpot of a dentist (proof is that he isn’t practicing anymore, and he’s not old enough to be retired), and I really think he drilled too deep into a regular cavity and gave me a root canal. There’s probably more filling than tooth at this point. Anyway. If I have to take care of it, I want to just get it over with, but the soonest appointment I could get is ten days away.
I’ve been eyeing these for quite a while, but I’ve been reluctant to buy them because I’m not the world’s biggest fan of nuts, and because I wasn’t sure how much I liked the ingredients. Having decided that a little bit of added sugar won’t kill me, I moved on to the corn maltodextrin. I wasn’t quite sure what it was, but it just didn’t sound like something I wanted to ingest! (Hence the question.) I asked my nutritionist about it — mainly because it sounds similar to maltitol, and sugar alcohols and I do not get along — and she said that it’s probably fine. So.
I tried the vanilla bean. I was rather underwhelmed. Mostly because I love love love vanilla, and I couldn’t really taste it here — just the almonds, and I don’t love love love almonds! I’m guessing it will be a while before this gets finished, unless my brother and / or dad likes it.
Yesterday, at work, everyone was talking about what they were going to eat before / after Yom Kippur. I think it’s the funniest thing — people act like they’re never going to see food again! It’s just one day, no need to get so dramatic about it. But then, I guess I’m probably a little… biased in that regard. Even so, nobody ever dropped dead from fasting for twenty-five hours, so far as I know! The bigger problem, if you ask me, is the enormous quantities we are supposed to consume prior to the fast… which “counts” as having fasted both today and tomorrow, instead of just tomorrow. Personally, I’d rather fast for two days. But, again — I’m not exactly impartial here.
Classic banana oats with peanut butter… sometimes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Sometimes.
And now I am off to … well … stuff my face.
Have a great weekend!
