Fail Whale

Evening everyone! I hope everyone had a great humpday. Mine was long…but it was good. It’ll be interesting to see how this semester goes. ๐Ÿ™‚

First order of business…I want to let all of you guys know about the awesome Dentyne gum giveaway that Jenny @ Peanut Butter & Jenny is doing. SIXTY awesome pieces! You know you wannnaaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, onto my eats.

I was up bright and early — due to my oh so lovely classes. So early that there wasn’t really natural light to take pictures with…oh well…I sipped on a “leftover latte” (just thought of that and I think I like it) of leftover espresso and milk & whatnot. As I sipped..I tried to get on Twitter…but nope … FAIL WHALE. Really?? That early?? I hoped that it wasn’t an omen for my day to come. haha

Other than an *almost* slip on the way to school — my cat-like reflexes came into play there and saved me…I had a dirty, black paint-chip colored hand from grabbing onto the fence next to me…but other than that I came away unscathed! — my day was anything BUT a fail whale. I’m excited about my new classes (well, the ones I had)…and they should be really interesting. Though my schedule is super hectic…and my bag weighed 19.2lbs today, and that was minus 4 books that I need…(oy, and yes, I weighed it)…I hope this’ll be a good semester.

In between a couple of classes, I hung out at the library with another cup of coffee — wasn’t really hungry — so liquid calories it was!

Once I got home, I whipped up some lunch for myself. I wanted something cold — so I decided to try cold brown rice, parsley, choppedย spicyย peppers, and some cranberry balsamic dressing. It was pretty good — I’d have it again, except I think I would warm up the rice just a little plump it up…but not get it really hot. The peppers were my fave part.

I lounged for a little (exhausted from lugging 20lbs 4 miles), and was hungry again…so I popped some popcorn.

Crunch.Crunch.Crunch. More lounging ensued as did shoveling a couple of unpicturedย cheese sticks, and a couple of spoonfuls of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl into my mouth.

For dinner, I warmed up a bowl of split pea soup — with my usual parsley garnish — and I added some red pepper flakes.

I also had a repeat of last night’s spicy sweet potato fries. They look a little crispier on the outside, but they were still nice and sweet on the inside. Nom.

I’m gonna spend the evening relaxing, doing some reading for class and thinking about a logo that I need to create for design… oy.

Hope you all are absolutely wonderful!!

    I hadn’t realized what time it was until I saw that you had already had dinner! I’m working on stupid grad work ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    ps: such a great idea to weigh your bag… I really wonder how much mine weighs! It would definitely explain all the back pain… lol!
    pps: When you do yoga at home what do you use? Podcasts or DVD and if so which one? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m trying to expand m yoga-at-home knowledge ๐Ÿ˜‰
