vodka tonic me!

what's the difference between today and every other day?

I.. did not.. have..
coffee. rather than take the long walk to grab a soy latte, I ate a Yoplait and stuck with water. and surprisingly, I have survived thus far. it may be a different story come 3pm.

some exciting news this week.. I have finally been taken off the waiting list for Two Small Farms. I pick up my bag of organic goodies this Friday and am very ecstatic about this. my bag of surprises include bok choy and beets which, I would never purchase but I already have recipes planned. we will also be receiving tomatoes and cilantro (yet another item I would never buy) but the timing is perfect as Nick will be making his zippy chipotle salsa this weekend.

in other news...
...never do cardio in cotton pants. ever.
...eating six mini musketeers from a coworkers candy bowl is the same as one whole one from the vending machine. stupid.
...Yoplait is not lactose free. I am lactose intolerant.
...wine, beer, sake, and vodka tonics do not mix.
...I am not the mayor of Burlingame as I may have exclaimed after wine, beer, sake, and vodka tonics.



today is like any other Friday. I snoozed my alarm 3 times before accepting the inevitable.
coffee, salad, and one slice of cake later and it's 4pm.

most difficult challenge of the day?
refraining myself from grasping two #2 pencils with sizable erasers, wacking everything on my desk and breaking out in song.. specifically Poor Little Rich Boy by Regina Spektor.

easiest challenge of the day?
conquering the world.


Bob Ross and me

my brain has accustomed itself to solitude. it only took my current lifetime. but I am finally ok with this.

what my brain is not accustomed to:
being put on the back burner. that's off. and very far away. on a different stove. in a different house. on another continent.
being put aside is for cold rice. not people.

in other news...
...the black widow living in our garage is D. E. A D. dead. she met my friend RAID who murdered her and her sad husband. for the sake of preventing swollen parts of human bodies, let's hope RAID killed any and all babies too.
...gardening gloves are necessary when trimming rose bushes.
...no matter how great one is at fantasy football, if you don't like it, it is just not fun (internet trophies are about as useful as a picture of a swiss army knife).
...one should not use the leg press machine with maximum weight, the calve machine, the butt blaster machine, and do single leg lunges prior to getting on the stepper.
...just because one cannot hear herself grunt due to a very loud iPod volume while working out, does not mean that no one else can hear her either.
...soy cheese on a pizza is just not as tastey as mozzarella cheese on a pizza.
...not maintaining a stylish do will not only put more money in your pocket, it will also make your head ugly.
