I told a little white lie last night… I informed my professor that I needed to leave early.
It wasn’t a total lie, I guess. The alternative would have been to stay in class and have a panic attack. Somehow, the option of high-tailing it out of there just seemed more appealing.
When I saw my acupuncturist today, I did tell him about the supposed runner’s knee (hey, it helped for my Sartorius, might as well give this a shot… no pun intended)… but I didn’t mention the anxiety. Clearly, I have no problem spilling that all over the Internet, but for some reason I guess I’m just kind of… embarrassed about saying anything. Or something.
And my knee hurts. Boo.
On my way home from school, I stopped at Whole Foods to buy rainbow chard — I’ve been waiting for it to go on sale for weeks — ever since I made this dish. In yet another display of my extreme genius, I didn’t realize that it was $1.99/bunch; I thought it was $1.99/pound. Since the people in my house wouldn’t know what to do with chard, or even what it was, if you slapped them in the face with it, I decided to only buy half a bunch, rather than have it go to waste. So, yeah… the point of it being on sale was kind of lost on me!
Deal of the Day, I suppose… which is a big deal when you eat as much cauliflower as I do…
99¢ a head? Yes, please.
This is the oh-so-exciting purchase that disturbed your sleep:
Two things spurred me to buy this: one, I am a moron and can’t figure out how to get a rearranged playlist onto my old MP3 player, and two, said MP3 player is the size of a brick. I kid you not:
I took the new one for a test run today. (Again, no pun intended!) I clipped it onto the neckline of my shirt… and pretty much forgot about it. I barely even knew it was there. That’s all I wanted from it, so there was no need for me to get something expensive! This will do the job just fine.
Now that you can sleep well, I want to improve the quality of my sleep. I finally got myself an eye mask.
I know I shouldn’t have my laptop in my room, but I can’t leave it anywhere else in the house — I feel like an interloper already — and even when the screen goes to sleep, it still emits a faint glow. (Yes, I know, I could just close it. Don’t even get me started.)
I’ve had this hot & spicy Primal Strip lying around for ages… I figured I should probably just eat it already, since the “best by” date was in January!
Maybe it’s an unfair judgment, considering that it was technically “expired,” but I didn’t care for this flavor at all. Then again, it was hot and spicy, so … it made me drink more water?
And oh, yes… the rainbow chard.
Prettier and far more colorful in my mind, but it was lovely.
Back to work I go. I’ve determined, by the way, that it is totally unnecessary for me to do any cardiovascular exercise, since the point of that is to raise your heart rate, and my heart rate is already insanely fast. Call it the Panic Workout.
Have a great weekend.
