Pooh. I know some friends from Community Pres are at Macaroni Grill for a goodbye to the Erricks. I'm jealous. Me too girls! I want delicious bread soaked in olive oil and spices and a cocktail! And splitting a dish with Angie Wilkes. And being too loud and asking the waiter personal questions (well, not me- maybe Maja- wink) Dang. Not to mention laughing until I ache and falling asleep on the way home. Again, pooh.
I have overeaten today. Chocolate has been calling my name. But I did run this morning. Still, I've gone WAY above my neurotic "calorie count". I stopped counting at lunch when I polished off a box of generic, stale Wheat Thins. They weren't good and they weren't chocolaty. If I had had a bottle of chocolate syrup, I would've poured it in them.
I made chocolate chip cookies last night. They were good. Well, the first 1/2 dozen were good, but not feeling real well right now after the second half. Note to self: Bake only when I know they won't all be eaten by me.
I have rotton bananas in my refrigerator to make banana bread. They stink. But,that wonderful banana bread is calling me (scroll down the link for that recipe).
I have a raw cabbage in my refrigerator. What the heck can I do with a raw cabbage? It came with the Angel Food stuff this month. I think I just stared at it for a full 5 minutes before I finally put it in the fridge. Where it has sat for 4 days. Untouched. Well, I did push it back today to make room for something more appealing. I've heard cabbage stinks when you cook it. I've no idea.
I'm trying to teach myself how to walk straight. Not that I walk like I'm drunk, but to learn how to walk more "like a lady"- toe-heel-toe-heel. It's easier to do in heels. I don't know why I wanted to learn how to do this. I'm sure I've never thought of it before I moved here. Maybe I'm bored. With my walk. I walk in the aligned squares at the school. Toe-heel-toe-heel. I watch my feet to make sure they're doing it right. I'm sure no one else is looking. Ish.
I think I've developed an allergy to perfumed soaps and lotions. Great. My legs felt like they were on fire all day yesterday. Today, (minus perfumed soap) they did not feel like they were on fire. Live and learn.
Today is my friend Kelly's birthday. We've known each other since we were six years old. Happy Birthday, Kelly! She's pregnant for the second year in a row on her birthday. How fun is that?
So far, so good on the house. Except that I've wasted far, FAR too much time on the computer doing Facebook and blogs. Must go do something productive.
