Hello again all you lovely people! It’s a lovely Monday evening, yes? Well maybe not so much – but there are some things that are good about it. Like, Gossip Girl returning to our lives. And it being one day closer to the weekend (don’t act like you don’t start the countdown on Monday). And, if you reside in my household there is yummy fresh corn in your belly right now. Okay that last one probably doesn’t pertain to many of you, but still.
The afternoon was A-okay. I had some sexist stomach pains, if yunno what I mean. But that didn’t stop me from enjoying a happy little afternoon snack.
and a Kashi Peanut Peanut Butter bar. In my opinion, these little nuggets are quite bland. There is very little peanut butter flavor. I prefer the Honey Almond Flax a lot more.
The remainder of the afternoon zipped by, as Mondays tend to do. After work, I skee-daddled straight to the gym to get my sweat on. I wanted to be worked out, showered, and fed before the shows started
On the way over to the gym the weather was so nice that I decided to run the half mile there, but when I got to the gym I didn’t feel like stopping so I ran a 1.5 mile loop around downtown and then went back to the gym to do 24 random minutes on the elliptical before running/walking/sprinting home. It was a great workout!
I came home and did the showering thing, which I won’t go into because this isn’t THAT kind of web site. And then I got started on the feeding myself thing!
I roasted up some fresh corn on the cob. It was my first time actually dealing with corn in the husk, I’m such a novice in the kitchen! But I got it done. I can’t believe I waited this long to cook my own fresh corn! I was just intimidated by it. I’m going to be eating a ton of corn from now until the stores stop selling it that is for sure.
I paired the corn with a grape tomato + spinach + mozzarella sandwich. It was divine. I stuck the bread in the toaster oven to crisp it up and melt the cheese and then added the cold tomatoes and spinach. It was perfect.
Then it was time to settle in and let the viewing begin! TV watching is going to be quite the production in our apartment this fall. When we were still in school (ahem, meaning still being helped out by our loving parentals) we had TiVo and didn’t really have to worry about missing our “stories”.
But now that we’re living out here in the real world on teeny tiny budgets, we have to watch the shows when they come on and suffer through the commercials. Sigh… Actually I don’t mind the commercials because they provide time for things like: dirty dishes, teeth brushing, lunch preparing, etc.
Many questions today!
1. Do you have TiVo or do you watch TV the old school way?
See my answer above ^^.
2. Are you into Gossip Girl?
I tried really hard not to be, but it sucked me in! Last year I had class during the show though, so I really have no idea what’s going on in the lives of S, B, N, or LB. Did I get that right?
3. Do you get up and do stuff during commercials (for those of you without TiVo)? What are your favorite things to do?
