I feel like I should. Really. So much crap goes here. But it’s so very therapeutic I don’t want to stop. Around the New Year I read a bunch of people resolutions and there were a ton that said something like, “Blog more often.” I found that so funny, because if I was a New Years Resolutions-type person mine would be, “Blog less.” I think I will cut back a bit. For now though, here it goes again… a “random thoughts” post where upon I sit my brain on the crapper (The Blog) and unleash “random poop” that I’ve been thinking about…
~ I drink a lot, a lot of tea. That would probably be fine if I didn’t have to sweeten it with Splenda every time, which I hear kills brain cells. Makes sense because of all the chemicals it has to go through to decalorify (made that word up) it. Anyone know for sure how bad it is for you?
~ I no longer eat ice cream. Gave it up cold turkey two or three days ago and haven’t looked back since. I was intaking too much of THAT too. I like it a little too well and I hate feeling controlled by innanimate things, so it’s outa here. I wash my hands of it for an indefinite period of time. Plus, my friend reminded me the other day that the less dessert-y things you eat the less you crave them. That would be nice and healthy. I would like it very much, which is another reason I’m squelching the addiction.
~ I also don’t eat/drink pop (idiot, it’s not “soda”), much meat, foods with trans fat, fried food, white bread and most pasta, and high-fat dairy products. I eat a lot of veggies (mostly via vegetable soups in the winter), fruit, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and water. It’s a pretty healthy diet for the most part. And even healthier now that I’ve excommunicated the ice cream.
~ Pickle Man is captivating.
~ I have a lot of reading to do for my classes. Like YEARS worth. I don’t know how they expect you to do it all in ten weeks.
~ I hate January and February in Ohio.
~ My mother is now my boss. Hooray! She was recently announced as the new CEO of my organization. This makes me very happy and very, very proud!
~ I am astounded that people who read this blog ever bother to come back. It is very strange, I think.
~ Get to see Awesome Cousin B again tomorrow if I make it to Columbus through all this snow (6-8 inches I’m hearing). We’re going out for Chinese. Again. (Yea!)
~ Every second I stay on here, I get further behind on my reading.
~ There has been progress in a certain area of my life. It’s really fun, but I can only tell Best Friend R, who was my inspiration for making the change.
~ I have another blog where I write when I’m feeling really “funky,” but there has not been a post there in about two months. That is a good thing.
~ I have a special blessing for whoever invented Skype.
~ To pump is to flush! haha, love you, Brother! Your sister, her mind is a booey…
~ A few words on public restrooms. First of all, I was in one yesterday that had the best (thick and soft) toilet paper I’ve ever used in a pubic bathroom. Second of all, it’s kinda disconcerting, I think, to “go” with other people you don’t know standing around listening. Sometimes I wait until someone flushes. Thirdly, even more disconcerting are those huge cracks between the door and the wall of the stall. I think there should be a whole social movement to rid our country of such things, because you know that when there’s a line (and in the women’s restroom there often is) the lady who’s next in line behind you stands right your line of sight. Consequently, should she choose to look she could see everything and there would be nothing you could do about it. Geez.. I always think to myself, “C’mon, Woman, is it really necessary for you to stand RIGHT THERE?? Please just move like three inches one way or the other!”
~ Okay… I think that’s it.
