Dear Pop Starlet,

Tell your people to hold up on their promises. We were told we'd get Krispy Kremes in exchange for politely listening to you; those are obviously Dunkin Donuts. There may be a riot.

Kiss kiss,

40cakes: (I'm So Excited)
I am so full of burrito it is like my tummy is pregnant by burrito. BLARGGGGGGGGGG SO FAT AND FULL OF FOOD.

I found a gym near me that charges $30/month. I'm thinking that it's a sweet enough deal that I no longer have an excuse not to gym.

I got yarn today! From Knitpicks! It is pretty! And now I only have 50 crafts I'm supposed to be doing! YAYS!

I've got about 500 projects going on right now at work when I usually have 5. AHHHHH.

In apology for doing nothing but complaining yesterday, here's a picture of me with a BIG bottle of booze and a little hamburger.
This weekend was pretty awesome.

- Friday night, Kirk and I went to Beana's, this local Mexican place that gives us ENTIRELY TOO MUCH GOOD FOOD, so we always have leftovers. There's also always a supply of strange customers with silly conversations. This time, a man and woman saw our enchilada and the woman went ballistic! "That's what I wanted! That's what it's supposed to look like! THAT'S what I wanted to order!" "Um, an enchilada?" "Yeah, that's what I ordered!"

- Saturday was just supposed to be quick errands, but involved running to two craft stores that were pretty far apart(A.C. Moore and Michael's), 2 comic shops that were similar distances, and then hung out in Barnes & Noble at least an hour (long enough for Kirk to read through The Exterminators and me to skim the second Penny Arcade collection). I also finished off a caramel apple cider from Starbucks while there. mmmmmmmmmm.

- We also ate at this place called Fresh Squeezed, which sounds like a smoothie joint, but is a little healthy eatery next to a NYSC. I had what I consider to be pretty much the BEST WRAP EVAR there, and a purty damn good smoothie too. The wrap was a "Cubana", which is grilled chicken, rice and beans, tomatoes, onions, monterey jack cheese, sour cream, AND PLANTAINS. It's like a burrito, but SWEET. Heart.

- Saturday night we stopped at White Castle to get dinner (I've had a hankering all week, and Kirk's always up to storm the castle), and discovered they have a meal where you can get 18 and a sack of fries for $9.99. SCORE! Many burgers were eaten, and many "Hey honey! I'M HOLDIN' YER SACK!!!" jokes were made.

- Sunday was a day of sloth and leftovers. We sat around all day and watched movies and South Park and anime and MST3K and ate all our bits and pieces of meals from the two days before. I cleaned my room and organized my yarn stash. Another round of cleaning will be needed before Thursday night, when my parents are coming up for surgery visitation. Like reorganizing sensitive materials into the hatboxes and pushing things into the back of the pyjama drawer.

- This morning, I had to undergo Pre-Admission Testing at JFK. They gave me a little patient bracelet for reasons unknown to me - they drew blood, took my blood pressure, and told me not to eat after midnight. Maybe they thought I'd try to escape. Whatever. I kept it on most of the day out of laziness and a desire to look like I had gone to the MOST AWESOME CONCERT EVER (especially when coupled with the bloody cotton ball taped to my inner elbow).

- Tonight is anime night with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] jaina. Do not disturb us! HAM!

- Started yet another project: The Pirate Queen's Booty Bag. Yarr. Also picked up the current Vogue Knitting, which has an awesome Sudoku patterned blanket. EEEE!

In case you didn't know, September 12th is National Chocolate Milkshake Day, so I got a chocolate milkshake downstairs. The guy made it from chocolate ice cream and chocolate milk OMG YUM.

Also, I finally got my passport info filed today at the post office, so now it's just waiting for them to send me everything. Eeee! I'm a grownup! Y'know, the sort of grownup who gets chocolate milkshakes and says "Eeeee!" all the time.

My company brought in Ben & Jerry's today to give us ice cream since we don't have summer hours anymore. I got Chocolate Fudge Brownie with crushed cookie crumbs, mini M&Ms, crushed oreos, whipped cream, and hot fudge. THEN I GOT A SECOND.

Vending machine carries Dark Chocolate M&M's. Sleepy streak over.
40cakes: (winner is me)
Feeling sleepy today. Must fight urge to go to candy machine. And/or gelato place. And/or bakery with chocolate puddin'. Etc.

The other day I acquired an overwhelming sense of respect for the documentarians of Winged Migration. There was a Pudgy Little Birdieā„¢ behind my car, and I tried to sneak up on him to take a camera phone picture. No such luck. He heard me a mile away. He hopped away, and coninued hopping to the point where I worried that he couldn't fly (no worries - he could). These are the things on my mind.

Anyone have salad recommendations? I really hate salad, and I think this is mostly due to hating lettuce. Hate hate hate. I hate iceberg, I hate romaine, I hate whatever type that is that essentially looks like I'm eating a bowl fulla oak leaves. But I like veggies - radishes, carrots, cucumber, celery, tomatoes (fruit poser), and I'm even getting to like onions - whoa! Most of what makes me choose a greasy Panini or a "hearty" soup instead of a salad for lunch is that the choose-your-own salads even start out as "pick which giant bowl full of lettuce you want so we can sprinkle other stuff on it". And knowing that I won't put much of a dent in the giant bowl of lettuce while I eat everything around it makes me feel wasteful. Kirk said he'll bring me a spinach salad one of these days, since I like spinach with other things, but I wanted to see if anyone else had suggestions.

40cakes: (Weight loss)
After my surfing lesson, I decided that I had such a hard time because I am totally out of shape again, and I should really hop back on the wagon of dieting and get back in line and work out at home (if nothing else, do pushups and work up to the surfing movement so I'll get better). I had an all-fruit Jamba (with antioxidant boost) for breakfast, and brought along a Lean Cuisine full of protein for lunch.

And then Dave said, "Hey, we're doing Taco Bell for lunch. You want in?"


Buuuurp. I brought along cute matching flip-flops to wear with today's outfit, figuring that I'd be sitting around an edit room all day and no one would see me. But I've been running up and down stairs and everywhere today. Today is not a day for running. Today is a day for waddling.
