Crunchy Lunch, Bags and Brows

13Feb09

Good afternoon! It is beautiful in Athens today, and even more beautiful because I’m not doin’ a whole lot! While I was partaking in my favorite morning activity, catching up on blogs, I ate breakfast:

pumpkin-yogurt-topped waffles, orange

Waffle topping: few tablespoons plain FF yogurt mixed with few scoops pumpkin, SF syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg. This was surprisingly delicious. It also lasted me four hours, so I was pleased. Peanut butter would have made it better too.  Oh, I of course put that atop burnt waffles (they are so much better that way!).

Eventually, I made it out of the house, stopped by BP for a Powerade Zero (grape flavor-tastes like Koolaid! oh childhood mem’ries) and went to women’s chorale. Boring. Anyway, I worked out after that and read Glamour while listening to Kanye. I was in heaven.  There was this quote in Glamour from Melody Barnes, director of the Domestic Policy Council. When asked was her motto is, she said:

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? When I’ve tried to live my life by those words, really exciting and wonderful things have happened.

Isn’t that extraordinary? What a great mindset!

When I finally got back home, I was ready for lunch. Last night’s debauchery made me decide I need to treat my body to some veggies:

color!

color!

In the mix: romaine, edamame, corn, mixed stir-fry veggies, cherry toms, BUTTER PICKLES, spag squash. I cringe when I say that I used Kraft Free Caesar Italian dressing. This stuff is poo, but I’m trying to finish the bottle. Alongside this crunch, I had amazingness:

Pacific Rose apple, Mighty Maple, Dark Chocolate Dreams

Apple+Dark Chocolate Dreams= blissgasm. Do you see that post-it on my laptop? It’s a reminder to me to pluck my eyebrows. I glanced in the mirror right before I left, and was afraid of the hairy beast I’m turning into. In other news, the outrageously beautiful and glowing Jaime has tagged me in this bag game. The rules specifically state to show a picture of the bag you’re currently carrying, so here goes:

the gorgeous bing cherry red Jansport that I've had since...8th grade?

I carry this ALL the time. I’ve even taken it into bars. I wish I didn’t have to carry it everywhere, but I live almost a mile walk away from anywhere else on campus, and I need to keep many things in there. Other than books, I always have a water bottle, snacks/meals, umbrella, two lip glosses (ok, one is Carmex), period goods, hand lotion, glasses, sunglasses, pens & pencils, and gum. I think that’s it. I never even used a backpack in high school, but it’s seriously the only thing that’s practical at this point in life.

My other bags…well, I only own three. They’re all a bit pathetic. I guess I’m not a bag lady yet!

Well lovepies, that’s all for now. But you can bet your booty I’ll have a lot to share tomorrow! Uh, read this text my friend who’s a bartender just sent me: Hey asshole, come get f*cked up with me at work. Though that’s a charming invite, I think I’ll pass.

Ciao for now,

Kailey
