happy tea

Took a walk with audrey, robert and the poops this morning and grabbed a bagel. Now, I'm back in front of the computer : (, but robert made a cup of happy tea and I'm listening to Peter, Paul and Mary on pandora.

Another 10 pages to crank out. Also a revision?

If I can get done today I want to do something spectacular tomorrow, but it's supposed to rain. So Dicks it is!

We'll see.

I'm ready to get the bike fixed and get back on it before the fear eats me up. I've been having nightmares about Friday. Did I mention that my chain broke while I was crossing a very busy road. Robert thinks it's funny, but I've had bad dreams about it the past two nights. Wow, what a simple life, a simple mind. I should be thankful for that.

Also, the station just switched to Simon & Garfunkel. How can you go wrong with that???? OMG AND NOW IT'S THE KINGSTON TRIO - WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE!!!!!!!!! Holy wow, Peter, Paul and Mary is the best station on Pandora.

At 5:06, May 8th, 2010, the ice cream truck makes its first appearance in Prairie Village since 2009.

And it's creating a lot of ruckus while I write my Morrison final.

Also, isn't there a rule about eating crap before dinner? Wouldn't ice cream ruin a person's appetite?

Ok back to finals

bastard donut pushers

I am not going to lie. I am a sugar freak. I heart sugar. And I actually kicked it for about two months last summer, but I succombed to the habit again. Now, I am proud to say, that since April 18th I have kicked the habit again, and I do sincerely plan to stay strong this time. Now, how do I explain my boundaries with sugar? Ok, I still eat as much fruit as I want. I also have a drizzle of honey during breakfast, a piece of dark chocolate a day and the hidden sugars that lurk in pasta sauces, cottage cheese and milk. If the sugar is lurking around I try to make sure that there isn't any more than ten grams of it. In fact, most often, there is less than five. I finally found granola with less than five grams. And it tastes amazing. Now, here's the deal. I hear a lot of crap from people about the fruit, dark chocolate and assorted foods that contain sugar (bread, holy crap), and they think that I'm full of shit. But, really, this is a huge deal to me. I usually have dessert for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and most often I will eat some sort of sugar for a snack. So, the fact that I've reduced my sugar intake to fruit, dark chocolate (usually 70%+ btw), and various foods is a huge damn deal. And I am proud. Now, if the dessert is something unique then I am going to try it by god. But I usually only run across rare desserts a couple times a month. And a bite of a cookie is better than the whole darn thing.

Today I got an email from my favorite donut place. "Where did you go?" it asked. "We will give you a free donut if you come back."


Oh and this is extremely adorable.

So unmotivated this morning. I fought my way through tennis, every shot shaking my teeth. I cursed my sluggish body. But I came home and ate a healthy lunch and did a little laundry. I also started working on my poetry portfolio, which is due Wednesday. I am going to practice signing Woody Guthrie for the kazillionth time and then take off for school on my bike. A 2 hour ride ought to tell these bones how to behave.

Thank you Jolie Holland for making my day.
