Because of a few things going on in the life – the mouse sighting, the almost-knife fight outside my house yesterday morning, my inability to lose any weight at all – the stress and anxiety levels have been creeping up. No worries, I’ll just eat something bad for me at the cafeteria and spend most of the morning reading my friends’ blogs and g-chatting. Sounds like a fantastic idea, right?
Mistake # 1: Choice of second breakfast.
I get up around 6:30-7am most days to get to the gym. Before the gym, I need to eat breakfast. It’s usually just something small – a frozen waffle with peanut butter or a small bowl of cereal – lots of water and vitamins. (I know this gives the impression that I’m a healthy person, but I drink too much vodka for that to be the case.)
Anyway, after a really good workout – or because I feel like it – I sometimes have a second breakfast around 10am so that I can make it through to a reasonable lunch time without getting violent feelings. On a day when I am making good choices, my second breakfast will be something healthy like a hard boiled egg or a slice of toast. When I’m not making healthy choices, it will be a donut or what I got today – egg and bacon on a biscuit. WHAT?! Good G-d, does it get any more unhealthy than that?! It was both delicious and disgusting, and I am already feeling sluggish.
Mistake # 2: Thinking my friends could help my mood.
(Okay, that is way over the top and not true. But i’ve committed, so bear with me.)
After returning from the cafeteria, I decided to check in on my friends’ blogs to see what’s what. First, a little look-see at what’s going on with my loves BLJ and JLJ. Yup, super cute and warms the heart. Next, a little sneak peak at what AM is up to. A little status quo there, but I am in no position to judge as I’ve been MIA myself these days. Then a look to KP to see how things are with that little curly-top pooch of hers. Finally, I swing by MJ’s blog to see what’s going on in Dupont Circle these days. Oh, great – a new post! Just what I needed.
I start reading. The Arlington Rap? I’m intrigued. I know MJ has an odd distaste for NOVA, and I have an odd love of weird rap. I read on. Then I see it.
Also, I have many friends that used to live in DC that don’t any more… so maybe they weren’t forwarded it 18 times like I was. And with that said, DC-resident Not-So-Quiet-Desperation probably hasn’t seen it either, so really I’m just doing some public service.
WHAT?! Called out – VIRTUALLY… and LITERALLY?! Wow – with friends like these…
And the truth does not save you on this one, MJ!
BTW, love this Arlington Rap. Definitely check it out.
