Homeward Bound


IT’S THURSDAY!! Thursdays are Fridays for me, so I am thrilled to be at the end of the week. Is Thursday really Friday for anyone else? It’s fantastic! I’m even more excited than usual because I get to go home tonight!

 After classes today, Muffin and I are packing up her Civic and taking a romantic drive back to the ‘Nati. Our drives back consist of hours of talking about men in our lives (well, man in my life, maybe men in Muffin’s life), singing or rapping to some fine jams and eating Arby’s curly fries (me) and cheddar melts (Muffin). This will be the first time since starting the play that Muffin and I will have true, quality time together. I’ve missed her!

I’m returning home for an internship interview, which I’m trying not to be nervous about, but it’s tough! I’m not sure what to expect, as I’ve never dealt with this sort of interview before. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m fairly decent at talking to just about anyone (thanks to working as a server at Olive Garden for a year). This thought keeps me confident.

On top of that latent nervousness is sheer happiness. I get to see my brother, dad and mom! I also get to see the loves of my life:

Sheba!! Sorry about the red eyes

Sheba!! Sorry about the red eyes

Look at that face! Oh my gosh I want to eat her. Sheba is the sweetest, goofiest dog in the world. We have no idea what kind of mix she is, as we saved her from a pet store where she was kept in a cage that was too small. She didn’t know how to walk when we first brought her home. That was heartbreaking to watch.

And then there is rat-dog, Cia. She is 13 years old and has been a huge bitch ever since we had her “fixed,” or whatever the proper term is for a female. I think she’s getting kinder in her senior years, though.

Cia is a basenji, an African dog that doesn’t bark, but occasionally yodels. Hysterical. I knew Cia and I would be close the moment she pooped on my hand when we first picked her up from the breeder.

You don’t care to see my dogs? Well, I love them and want the world to know how precious they are.

Here’s something that isn’t precious: staying up until 2:30 a.m. to write a review that’s due at 9 a.m. Yes, kidlets, that’s what I was doing last night. I don’t have pictures, but I definitely SnackFaced my way through it. One of the snacks was several servings of Kashi Vive. This cereal is delicious and has various mouth-pleasing textures. With 12 grams of fiber per serving, however, I do not advise eating more than one serving at a time. Trust me on this one.

Guess who paid me a visit last night, thus causing me to stay up later than necessary? THE ROOMIE’S CRAZY EX. My roomie wasn’t even home. He came to apologize to me and tell me–with tears in his eyes– that he loves her and wants nothing more than to have her back in his life. We had a long discussion that I won’t hash over, but in the end, my anger subsided and I thanked him for coming to talk to me. I’d also like to clarify that they’ve had issues for the past two and a half YEARS. It’s exhausting and I’m not even directly effected.

Enough with the ex-boyfriend escapades. Today I got up at 8, turned in my review and ellipticalized at the gym for a bit. Because I feel guilty for lack of food photos, I will leave you with a trio of oat porn:

Tropicoats: banana, pineapple, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, Dark Chocolate Dreams- the p.b. that works best with pineapple

I am eating this right now, and loving every single bite.

Okay, just burnt my tongue on a piece of pineapple. I recommend adding pineapple after a minute of micro’ing so as to avoid its tendency to heat faster than the other components.

Thank you all for the congratulations on the award! Within the next few months I hope to figure out how to make SnackFace prettier, more organized and overall more enjoyable. Have a fabulous Thursday!!! I’ll be back much later to recap the day (maybe even share a pic of the curly fries, if I get them)! Love you all!

Ciao for now,
