How I so smugly threw about the words, “chickpea?” and “organic” and “no white sugar” and bladdedy blahblah?
Well, today, this happened:
OK, actually the three things on the right happened on Sunday. And also today. And it’s looking favorable for tomorrow.
I would like you to know that since last July, I’ve been a pretty healthy eater. Sure, I slipped a few times. A few too many bowls of soy ice cream here, too many sweet potatoes there, four bags of El Indio chips here AND there (the only ingredients are corn, lime, oil and salt, so I justified it as being natural), but today I careened full force into a fructose high.
I don’t know why I fell off the healthy eating slope so dramatically. I’m sure it has something to do with the two 70-page reports I’m
supposed to be editing. One report is a harrowing account of the insurance industry in APAC (Asia Pacific). The other, a swashbuckling adventure featuring the hottest thing to hit telecommunications in YEARS: Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access.
Both need to be completed by May 31 and I’m crawling at a snail’s pace to finish them. There’s so much re-writing and research and head scratching at the analyst’s word choices, that I just blew up inside and I’m rebuilding myself with the only things that will get me through: caffeine and chocolate.
The other thing that will happen as I procrastinate and stuff myself with lipids is that I will update this blog often and maniacally with random thoughts and observations. Seriously, you may want to unsubscribe from my feed now. I haven’t had this much caffeine in almost a year.
