Procrastination Station

08Mar09

Hello lovepies! I cannot believe it’s the Sunday before my last week of classes of the quarter. I also cannot believe that I have loads of work to do, yet put walking outside, searching for more internships and watching a movie before my homework. This is what warm weather does to me; I cannot do work when it’s beautiful out there! So now it is Sunday, and I WILL write an art review, a piece for the women’s literary magazine, an English paper, AND I’ll read. I hope.

Yesterday was an interesting day of eats. After soup for breakfast, I eventually wanted a pear (unpictured). And then I wanted to try this new HFCS-filled yogurt. It sounded delicious an was only$.63 or something like that.

I grew up eating the non-light Thick & Creamy's; had to try this

Upon first bite, there was a light hint of cinnamon with a startling overtone of aspartame and supersweetness. Eventually, the cinnamon flavor wore away and I felt as though I was eating just sweet, eggy-textured yogurt.  Though it wasn’t the best, it wasn’t wretched. Of course I finished it. I was unsatisfied though and finished off the last few spoons of cottage cheese. I had NO idea I loved cottage cheese as much as I do.

After eating and getting dressed, Muffin and I headed to an art exhibit for which we must write a review. Alright, I appreciate the arts, but I cannot dig close-up pictures of the ground. They looked…cool? Writing about it should be a blast. Not.

With the sun shining and the temperature at almost 80*, we simply could not go back to our respective homes to do meaningless homework. Muffin and I leisurely walked around uptown while chatting, laughing and sipping sodas. When we stopped at BP for our Sprite Zeros, these were sitting right in front of us while we were waiting in line:

Perfect! Muffin actually keeps a post-it that I wrote for her by her desk, which reads: I <3 My Mini-Muffin!

We visited MisterMan at the library (yeah, he was actually doing work), and then we went our separate ways. On my walk home I passed a 30something woman SMOKING A BLUNT. Just walking on the street, smoking pot as if it were as legal as a cigarette. That’s Athens, Ohio, for ya.

Slightly shocked still, I made a wrap. This may be the only “normal” thing I ate all day.

carrot; La Tortilla Factory wrap with Sabra's garlic hummus, pickles, spinach, mustard

I tried to catch up on blogs in order to clear my mind to start work. Nope, didn’t happen. Eventually I wanted something else to eat:

I ate several pieces like that

And then I thought I was lacking protein. In came GlidingCalm’s p.b.&j tempeh.

I love this! I ate double what you see here.

Then I wrote a list of the work that I’ve procrastinated with/for (?), and got curious about internships. I searched online for a good chunk of time (hour, two hours), and found many more for which I want to apply. One of them was for Glamour and you didn’t even need a cover letter, just an email “telling a little bit about yourself.” I got uber-excited and decided, again, I haven’t a chance, but I’m sending my things anyway! During this email writing, I ate a ton of raw radishes (unpictured). The crunch helped me with my excitement.

Before I knew it, it was 8ish, and I figured dessert was in order. First I had spoons of this:

Yes, I ate straight from the carton. This ice cream is fabulous.

Then I remembered that the roomie baked today! She made a Tollhouse-style pecan pie with a shortbread crust. I had a sliver or two (she also had some earlier, I didn’t eat a piece that big).

HOLY F!

HOLY F!

This was so good I moaned. I also talked to myself, “Ohmigawd. Oh. My. God.” I have a deep passion for homemade baked goods, and this will be dangerous to have in the house.

MisterMan picked me up soon after for a movie night. We watched Match Point, starring Scarlett Johannson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. It was alright. Rhys Meyers is a beautiful man, but every line he delivered sounded exactly the same. It was one-note and sounded as though he was listing his lines. Also, the ending of the movie is bizarre and the tie in with tennis (and “Match Point”) is weak and unnecessary. Thank goodness we had wine and pita with spinach dip to distract me.

Yesterday was lovely, but now I actually have to buckle down. I never used to be this bad at procrastinating; I think the quarter has just worn on me and I’m ready for a new one. On tap today:
-write, read, rince, repeat
-laundry!
-Women’s Chorale rehearsal 8-10 p.m.

I hope everyone has a glorious Sunday and has overall enjoyed their weekends! Love ya bunches!

Ciao for now,

Kailey

  9. oh, i totally use that same exact pb! soooo good.

    and love that you used it gliding calm style. yeah yeah.

    i agree too, match point was an ok movie. i think the only reason that i watched it was because of Matthew Goode…cause he’s freak’n hot. haha!

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a very fine specimen of the male species. I thought that Match Point was kind of weird for a Woody Allen flick though.

    I always think it’s funny when I see people getting blazed in public like it’s no big deal. I’m from Vermont, and in certain parts of Burlington it’s weird if you can’t catch a whif of some green.

    It sounds like you had an awesome, super productive day. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
