Hump Day Blahg!

Things I’ve learned in the past week:

-Never turn your back on a Dragon.

-Good running shoes make a HUGE difference.

-When the sun doesn’t come out to play for several days in a row, I start feeling unproductive, apathetic, and just plain lazy.

-I am terribly out of shape, considering the fact I want to run a half marathon.

-“Let’s go bother our friends in ‘Time Out’” is NOT Miss Ruth’s favorite kid game.

-Eating cheap protein bars from the Dollar Tree is like chewing on soy candles.

-My second novel is going to need a LOT of editing, but after taking a good look at it, I really think it's going to be worth ithe work.

-Roasted seaweed is awesome, but should not be eaten a few hours before a run—unless you like burping up that fishy taste again, and again, and again.

-Sometimes, you just really need a turkey sandwich.

-I should not go shopping for pasta sauce when I’m tired and hungry, lest I mistake the word “Poblano” for the word “Portobello.” Portobello is a variety of tasty tasty mushroom that belongs in tasty tasty pasta sauces (among other places—like in my belly). Poblano is a variety of pepper that should never be used in pasta sauce, unless you’re a weirdo who likes their Alfredo sauce to taste like spicy queso dip.

-I’m starting to look my age, my age isn’t all that young anymore, and I need to find a way to cope with both of those facts.  Also, I'm vain.

-Sometimes (usually) when people ask you how you’re doing, they really don’t want you to tell them every little detail of what’s going on in your life.

-I’m still really bad about asking for help with the big stuff.

-I hate surveys.

-I’m not one of those people who can go without using shampoo at least every three days. My hair doesn’t get too greasy, but it just doesn’t flow right if it’s not good and clean. Once again, I'm a bad hippy...not a hippy who does bad things, but a hippy who's not good at being a hippy.

-I actually have a reason to shop at Harris Teeter, now. Their store brand Naturals yogurt is low calorie and has no artificial sweeteners. Plus it's fairly inexpensive, tastes good, and has seven grams of protein.

-Nobody besides me cares about the amount of calories, protein, and artificial sweeteners in their yogurt.

-I think about food too much.

-I’m unable to part from my travel coffee mug of three years. The lid cracked on my old one, so here is what I did.  I bought a new cup of the same style, stole the new lid from the new cup, and put it on my old cup. Now I am happy.

-I'll have lived in Wake Forest for six full years as of tomorrow.  I've also been working at the same drop in childcare center for almost six years.  It kind of makes me wonder what I've been doing with the last six years of my life....

-I have a lot to do and should probably stop blogging.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I haven't tried it, but I have a feeling that I would be just the kind of weirdo who would like poblanos in alfredo sauce.

  2. I don't know if you can have it (probably has milk and other Dawn-unfriendly ingredients), but it's a Classico sauce. Seriously tastes like queso. I told my roommate she could have it to use with her tortilla chips.
