Manic in my blogging thoughts that is...It was actually a really calm Monday at work.
I've been slowly catching up on this latest season of The Biggest Loser. Are you watching? I haven't watched it for a couple years, but wow, the host, Alison Sweeney, has gotten mean!!! And I'm still really surprised that people think this is a healthy way to get healthy. Losing 15 pounds a week?? I just don't think the human body knows what to do with that. One guy lost 120 pounds in SEVEN weeks. Insane. Sure, the human body is not meant to handle an extra 2-300 pounds either, but losing THAT fast...seems dangerous. And p.s. - the new 20something trainers? Very irritating. And horrible actors.
How many chances do you give a restaurant to get your order done nicely before you give up on them? There's a thai restaurant directly on my way home and it's WAY convenient...but the last three times I've gone there - not up to standards. I've gotten over the fact that the owner, who is at the register 99% of the time, is not friendly in any way, no matter what I do/say to him. But to not give me enough peanut sauce to enjoy my peanut sauce dish? That's pretty unforgivable. This is the second time....I think I'm going to break up with him.
Speaking of second chances...how many chances do you give a teenager who forgets something on the counter once a month? This months neglected food: Leftover ham from easter dinner. ALL the leftover ham. The milk has fallen victim MANY times to this tragic event.
I've given up the idea of having a plasma tv (courtesy of my saved credit card points) and a connection to that new wonderful tv to my computer. It was getting to be such a process...and I'm not hating watching tv primarily on my 28inch computer monitor. I so rarely ever just sit and WATCH tv anyway - I have to be doing something else...lately, I've been crocheting a scarf. Right, in the summer - but I figured it might take me months to finish. However, I'm half done now! In a week!!! It's not straight...and it's not perfect but whatever. It's my first yarn project I'm going to actually finish since 1992.
We had the most beautiful day the other day. I walked to the grocery store, 1.7 miles, because I had made some delicious guacamole and forgot to buy chips. I took my camera along and found some pretty flowers on the walk. If I could just walk all over and take pictures for a living, I'd quit my job tomorrow.
