oh the humidity

Once again I'm brain tired because of this heat. I'm from a breed of people that can't stand heat but hate the cold. We are a moderate temperate stock. And we like bland food (well I don't but most of my family does). Where am I going with this you ask? No where. Like I said, I'm brain fried, tired.. whatever.

So I'm melting into a puddle in the apartment. Sometime this morning I crawled to the kitchen to see what there was to eat. I started to forage and then I stopped. I stood in my tiny apt. size kitchen and realized "my god, some of this stuff should be illegal so weak people like me won't succumb to the temptations of such things or have to do stuff I don't like". And here is the conversation that took place in my crazy little head:

Item One: Why does Loblaw's (Canadian grocery chain) put this on sale for 3.99? That's three dollars off people. THREE DOLLARS OFF!. It's cruel to mark that down for weak folk like me to buy. Who can resist?


Item Two: Sweet, sweet cinnamon butterhorn. Why do I hear you calling my name? Or are you tooting my name with your buttery horn? Why does husband say I can eat the last one? Is he going to ask me to kill someone later (or something equally dastardly) and then say "well honey, come on... I gave you the last butterhorn". And then you know I will have to do it because I inhaled that butterhorn before he even finished saying I could have it. Bad, bad butterhorn.


Item Three: Doritos. Do I have to spell this one out? I didn't think so.

Item Four: Panda licorice. Yes I find you in the organic section of the store and you make me feel good (and you keep me regular*). But you are made of sugar and something black. And that is all. And it makes me have a tummy ache because I eat you all at one time. Because I'm weak willed.
*WAY too much information to be sharing. Sorry gentle reader.

Item Five: Universal law - laundry should be illegal. And it shouldn't be piling up outside the kitchen. But it is. Because I'm lazy and it's too hot to be doing laundry. We can go naked until the neighbours call the cops.

But on the bright side I did buy some new tea towels. Aren't they fab?
So I know this is a really lame post but I'm not inspired by this weather and I'm trying to pack for a trip to the in-laws because Bump Daddy is having a boy's weekend. I'm hoping I get to spend some time by the pool reading Random Families by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc (or The Company You Keep by Neil Gordon because I haven't decided which one to crack open yet) and let the grandparents take care of Bumper. Because they don't get to see her often enough. I also will be in a rural place that only has dial-up (THE HORROR!) so I'll be jonesing by the time I get home on Tuesday. I'm not quite sure what the withdrawal symptoms look like but I'm sure I'll be able to write about when I get home if it's not too traumatic.

TDot moms - have a fantastic get together this weekend. I'll be thinking of you all!

Everyone have a great holiday weekend!

We're from the same breed. Humidity is my kryptonite. Hang in there.

Have a good weekend.

I just replied to you in the comments in my site that we must have a mama 80's film fest. You need to see Dirty Dancing!!!

Her Bad Mother said...

Oh boundless hell frackin' blogger is eating my commments...

Something about licorice and cinnamon buns and yummy things and how you MUST have a great weekend and come back for more face-hugging fun.

Oh, and about how MM's 80's movies night idea is the best idea for another TO Mama get-together...

Bri said...

this morning, due to the extreme heat and all, I've had 2 ice cream sandwiches...
Have a great weekend!!!

I didn't realize just how much I hated humidity until we moved out here. It is wonderful because the hot weather is not steamy, and the cold weather is not bone-chilling.

Ice cream. Major weakness. And on sale? Impossible to resist.

Oh my god it's hot, isn't it?

Cinnamon buns are my weakness. They're my favourite thing EVAH. And hey, coffee keeps me regular. I kill two birds with one stone when I drink it. ;)

blackbeltmama said...

Oh My GOD! I am so hungry now that I absolutely MUST eat something before I go to bed. . .

Waya said...

Same here for me, I hate to sweat and hate the cold. Therefore, exercise is definitely out of the question for me.

Sorry to hear about the heat. But I'm sure you will enjoy the pool at your in-laws. Aren't grandparents great?! Have fun.

Honey, you shop like me....with your out of control sleep deprived hormones.
Eat some berries with cereal, drink lots of water (so you can be always on the lookout of restrooms).

And yes...she will sleep someday. but don't lie awake thinking about it.

Hi There,

Thought I'd stop by because I've seen you 'around the blogosphere' and wanted to say Hi!!

Butterhorn and black licorice are two foods that remind me of my grandmother. She would always have them available and now they are my comfort foods.

Oh and Ben and Jerry's and Doritos. As you said, sometimes there's no need to spell it out. :)

sunshine scribe said...

I'm the big loser that likes humidity. I know, I need treatment of some sort.

We missed you on Friday and look forward to meeting you at the next one!

Beth said...

Next time put a warning up! I want that junk! lol!
I hate to be really hot, but also hate to be really cold. Can't we have like a nice 22 degrees with a calming breeze every day?

something blue said...

Oh, tasty treats! Thanks for the licorice tip. I'd rather eat that than blah, fibre cereal. I'm loving your tea towels.

Looking forward to meeting you at the next mama blogger event!

Lisa said...

I absolutely love Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey..mmmmm!

The tea towels are super cute!

Absolutely true, the markets are designed to target the weak and the lazy.

Ben And Jerry's makes soup?
