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!
