I Love My Best Friend


Wanna know why? Because we have phone conversations like this on Monday nights:
12:30 a.m., my cell rings, phone says “Muffin”
Me: Hey! Are you okay!??
Ashley (Muffin): Yeah! Omg! I’m at 19 South [a club] and it’s $1 shot night!
Me: Hahaha are you okay though?
Ashley: Yeah, I’m outside smoking a cigarette. I accidentally had six shots!
Me: Oh my god. Why?
Ashley: People just kept buying them for me! And this guy was telling me how white I was and I told him: I’m not white, I’m not black, I’m a princess.

Folks, no part of that is false. That is my best friend and she is hysterical. We actually had that conversation, which we just rehashed in Visual Communication class. She also shared that she continued to introduce herself to others as Princess Ashley. And when a guy asked her to “grind” with him, she replied, “princesses don’t grind.”

I hope you found that nearly half as amusing as I did. Anyway, how is your Tuesday going? Mine’s been uneventful and rainy, yet pleasant.

I woke up this morning at 8:30, ate half naner with Mighty Maple,Β headed to the gym, got in an AWESOME sweat-tastic workout (35 mins. elliptical, then weight machines- don’t know what they’re called: 2 ab exercises, 4 arm exercises- killah). I then walked home, showered and made this ASAP.

Best pumpkin protein oats yet!

Best pumpkin protein oats yet!

This is no novel idea for those of you who are oatmeal experts, but I added ginger and nutmeg to the usual (1/2 C oats, 1 C water, 2 scoops pumpkin, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, cinnamon), and it MADE the oats. Clearly, I don’t own pumpkin pie spice or else this wouldn’t have been such a relevation.

Classes today were also pleasant. In English we watched a documentary Maid in America, about Latina workers in Los Angeles. Eye opening. In VisCom we learned more about impressionism. In between those classes I had a mini chocolate chip Clif bar that did not hold me over well. I came home to tear this apart:

ate more than half before I took the pic

Followed by two of these:

rice cake with white bean aioli spread

I’m not going to buy rice cakes for a long time. I always think they are going to make great snacks and mediums for toppings, but they never fill me up and I just really want real food afterward.

Those eats weren’t all that exciting, but I missed everyone and had to give ya something! Tomorrow morning I’ll post dinner, late night snacks and the package Mama J sent πŸ™‚

Tonight I have a capella rehearsal 8-9:30 and play rehearsal 9:30-11. The scary part of all that: I think tonight’s the night I have to start making out with my scene partner. Ahh! I’m not ready! I’ll report back with the deets tomorrow. Everyone have a tickled/terrific/trippy Tuesday night!

Ciao for now,
