Whole Lotta Love

14 Feb

Click here for Billboard’s 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time. I used to loooooove #4 “Too Close” by Next. I definitely wouldn’t have picked the song they did for #1 though (I won’t spoil it)

For my Losties out there….

 I am not too big on Valentine’s Day due to horrible experiences in the past. And I am not talking about being alone experiences because I have been alone more so than in relationships. I am talking about Valentine’s Day’s past that include one telling me he was still in love with his ex who had three abortions of babies that may or may not have been his (perfect timing on his part to tell me this over Valetine’s Day dinner), one who forgot completely about Valentine’s Day and went out with his friends, one whose ex girlfriend came into town and diverted him from coming over to my place and such (Unfortunately the list goes on).

 But I do love my family, friends, dog and those who make me happy in life (including myself which is why I get myself Valentine’s Day gifts) and do appreciate all of them and are thankful they are in my life. So if you do have someone, be happy that you don’t have to deal with the rancid dating pool out there-it’s pretty grim!

And am I the only one who wants to see Valentine’s Day?? I know it looks like a knock off of Love Actually (one of my favorite movies….and a great soundtrack!) with the all star cast(although I could do without Taylor Swift) and tangled plots but I think it looks cute. But then again, I love rom com’s.

Oh! And if anyone is planning on making the love, they had Trojan coupons in the paper this past wknd! I am all for being economical and saving money where I can but I don’t know about using coupons for condoms (hehe I like how that sounds). With my luck, I would go to register, have 14 people behind me when all I am purchasing is Swedish fish and Trojans and something would be wrong with the coupon. I look through the paper every Sunday and found it amusing there are now coupons for condoms (had to say it one more time)! 

Needless to say-Happy Valentine’s Day all!

Wake up little sushi

10 Feb

I started my day off again with a Spinach Coffee Smoothie (Soy Milk, Coffee, Spinach, Chocolate Whey) but added alfalfa sprouts this time from the suggestion of a friend.

He is not a good friend because it tasted to alfalfa-ey (don’t think that’s a word but I’m making it into one) and was nastier than a two dolla hooker. With the spinach at least it doesn’t have a strong taste but the alfalfa was too much for me.

I made a breakfast sandwich with Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin, Quick Eggs with parsley mixed in and laughing cow garlic and herb wedge

I do miss Starbucks Red Holiday cups but am kinda diggin the heart cups they have in lieu of Valentines Day.

And I have decided that since no man will be buying me anything( although Lincoln would if he was, ya know, human) I will be buying myself a cookie cake. I will probably only eat half of it but that’s what I want for Valentine’s Day ?

I met up with a friend for lunch and we went to Fiji Sushi Bar & Lounge for all you can eat sushi! The deal is $10 which is not bad at all. We were a little confused at first b.c we didn’t see a sushi bar with sushi readily available on it. Soon we saw servers coming around with trays o sushi and knew I was in heaven!

First round

Second round

Third (and biggest round)

I was so happy to have some good sushi for a reasonable price. And  be able to enjoy a nice lunch out as opposed to eating at my desk. No one on my team ever goes to lunch so when I have a friend who wants to go out for lunch, I get super excited! And taking an hour off from work is such a great way to break up the day

I also found this adorable shower curtain online and would totally buy it if I didn’t have a garden tub with glass door


I went to the library to wake up after Sushi Fest 2010 and got this book


 
I can’t wait to look through and get some new recipes!

I saw this and chuckled

I went for coffee after and got a refill of my Starbucks. There are so many people in there mid day, I am curious as to what they do for a living? But then again, they could be thinking that about me! LOL

I wasn’t ravished come dinner time so made a mini portion of quesadillas (filled with chicken, kidney beans, onion, cheese and jalapeno) with sour cream and salsa mixed together 

On the side, I tried Kettle Brand Jalapeno PotatoChips, which is a new product of theirs

I think they forgot to put the flavoring on them 😦 I even poured myself a big glass of water to go with it and they were disappointing. I think bbq flavor may have more kick which sucks because I love hot stuff like jalapenos. this was my first bad experience with that brand and that made me sad.

I was kinda meh about it and zoned during some of it. I am going to watch it online either tonight or tomorrow night and see if I feel differently.

Ay brotha, I miss Desmond!
 

Bring him back!!!!

My dog is not a morning dog

Woke up at 620A and caught the 655A bus—-go me! But it was not meant to be……10 minutes from work some idiot crashed and took down two poles (I can say idiot because he is alive and ok) so the cops made everyone detour. I got to see parts of Charlotte I’ve never seen though so that was a plus. To get through the detour, I just played on my BlackBerry and updated my datebook. How cute is my datebook? It says “Let the sun shine on me and make me feel special….” And it is just too cute! And it has red and white polka dots on the inside. It makes me happy every time I see it 🙂

But then a 40 min bus ride ended up taking an hour and a half so me=not a happy camper.

A few interesting things though

*Some guy who I have never seen at my bus stop offered for me to stand under his tiny umbrella-ella-ella-ella. Sorry random, slightly creepy man I have never seen or spoken to, I am alright. And I am super mad because I couldn’t find my mini Coach umbrella. It was so cute-turquoise with  signature C’s on it and I got it on sale at the Coach outlet! But now I just remembered that I left it on the bus last wk and am highly sure I am not getting that baby back. RIP…..

 

*There is a new cutie on the bus. I am sure he is not jail bait but not so sure he can buy liquor legally in the US. And he looks like a slightly overweight Josh Hartnett (in his clean days, not went he went dirty like Ethan Hawke).

Hello lover

 He gets off at the community college stop each day maybe I can offer some “tutoring” services hehe

*We have another celebrity lookalike on the bus  (but not a good one!) This dude looks like David Gest (liza’s ex)

I know, I just lost my appetite too. He is usually quiet and reserved but after our slight detour today, he was getting really ancy and couldn’t stop tapping his foot. He rang the bell to get off (about eight miles from work….in the rain) so I am not sure what happened to him.

Breakfast was day two of operation-get-off-the-greek yogurt.

Blueberries and oatmeal with some blueberry flavored flax

 

Now I shall only answer to Blueberry Muffin since I was in blueberry heaven

Lunch was sloppy joes

 

Snacks were a banana and orange . I am not sure if you can tell by this angle but they looked like they were spooning on my desk 🙂

Some random thoughts:

I wonder why on Microsoft Officer communicator there is an emotion for a martini? No clue but I love it!!

I don’t like looking on Facebook to see that men who may have done a body shot off of me in college now have babies (especially daughters) this just irks me
Dinner was inspired from Tina’s Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I made split chicken breasts this weekend marinated in Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce and used that for the chicken (love the timesaver there!) and took Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Pizza Dough (1/2 of the entire portion), spread Naturally Fresh  Lite Peppercorn dressing on top, topped with chicken, onion (I didn’t have green but threw some yellow onion in my food processor along with jalapenos for a little extra spice) and mozzarella cheese and let bake for about 13 mins. I would make this again, it’s a nice break from regular pizza.

 

I am so excited for Lost tonight!!!! I cannot wait to see what happens however it is bittersweet since it is the final season (which I secretly hope they are lying about!)  I love this photo clearly taking after the Last Supper with Locke in Jesus’ seat.

And this would be me being a dork with my Lost shirt-I’m so stoked (and need a tan, I look like an extra on True Blood!)

Anyone else excited? Do Not Disturb is going on my BBM 🙂

Sleepwalking

27 Jan

This is how I felt all day. And I had my coffee. Two cups and a diet coke (which I haven’t had since the wknd) and still felt like I was going to strangle someone.

It is a little after 8P and I finally feel like I am starting to wake up. I have been so beat today which is weird since I got a good amount of sleep last night. But the night before, I got maybe three hours of sleep and was bouncing off the walls. I guess I finally hit the wall! Maybe it is because of the weather and it being cold out. All I know is when it gets like this, I want to come home from work, get in my fleece pajama pants and do nothing!

I finally for in touch with Toyota today to ask about the recall and they said I don’t need to bring in my car just yet which is good. However, I heard that they don’t even have a fix for the accelerator pad problem! So I guess keep driving and cross my fingers that the pad doesn’t get stuck? Good plan of attack!

Breakfast was Chobani Strawberry yogurt, strawberries, flax and coconut granola. I need to get some Chia seeds, I keep seeing them everyone and am curious about them.

Work was steady enough today but I was still bored and trying to find stuff to do. When this happens, I start discovering annoying habits of my co-workers. One of them is a project manager and on conference calls all day. Any time the call ends or he is walking past my desk, he always sighs……and when I say sigh, I mean siiiiiiiiiiiiiiighhhh. For a man, he is very dramatic. You would think he just got done doing manual labor. But no, on a conference call about a new system we are going to be incorporating into our work place. Weird. And annoying.

Lunch was the last of the slow cooked beef brisket (YAY!) and Uncle Ben’s Rice Pilaf with sautéed onions and mushrooms. And that would be collard greens in the corner ( my co-worker was waiting for me to heat my lunch up and had some extra).

I walked over to the library for something to do (and they had The Lizzie McGuire CD waiting for me……I am 30 mind you. There is one song on there I discovered on Pandora that I wanted to get. But it evens out because they also had Vampire Weekend waiting for me!) and found this awesome book

I am not a vegan by any standards but it is always fun to try new things and if they are standard recipes but healthier,great! I flipped through this on my way home and it has a lot of good stuff! And she put in random facts about the ingredients she uses in her recipes and I just love that kinda stuff 🙂

I came home to a happy dog and we took a nice walk outside before it got dark. I fixed myself a bowl of spaghetti using Barilla Plus Whole Wheat Thin Spaghetti and topped with the spinach, artichoke and mushroom mix I cooked last night and some Parmesan cheese-yum!

I wish I had a salad on the side or something. I was still hungry afterwards so decided to have a little desert. I have a bunch of Betty Crocker Warm Delights (the mini ones) so I nuked that for 30 seconds that scooped out and put then over some Chobani 2% Plain Greek Yogurt. Delish!

I have decided that when I die, I would like to be buried with my Blackberry, Fleece Pants and Chobani because I love it so.

I finally had a full belly after that-yay! I took a nap and woke up to a fur baby on me 🙂

Life is good. I cannot believe Lost starts in less than a wk, that just makes me so happy! And my trip to NYC won’t be the only trip I have this yr…planning a trip to DC in April. And I can bring Linky with me so he can finally meet his new BFF Riley (my friends dog). I am anxious to see what kind of shenanigans they get to while we enjoy the Cherry Blossom Festival! I am also looking to move from Charlotte and DC may be one of the possible areas I am looking into. The fact that I don’t have a sugar daddy to help pay the bills or a job set up there isn’t working in my favor though. Or the fact that it is one of the highest cost of living areas in the country either. Meh!
