January 3

8:45 AM
Woke up this morning at the ungodly hour of 5:30 for no reason at all, and totally convinced myself that someone was breaking into my house.  Turned out to be the stupid hamster tossing her food down the tube thing.  Had a tall skim cappuccino with one pump of sugar free caramel.  Now I'm at the Apple Store listening to a big fight at the Genius Bar - he says her kid broke the iPad by using inferior German headphones, but she says that is bullshit!

I'm going home.

10:30 AM
Had an egg and more of Bittman's salad, as well a nice cup of Constant Comment because it is so fuddy duddy delicious.  I'm eating a lot of eggs.  The thought of eating a lot of eggs makes me never want to eat an egg again.  Eggs are really revolting when you think about it.  Even the word "egg" sounds awful, like it should mean "phlegm," as in, "When I had pneumonia I coughed up a huge egg."  Once I saw a photo of a premature egg - they eat them in places like France.  Made me want to puke.  If you want to see that, and more, click here.

12:07 PM
Sometimes cashews taste like chocolate, and sometimes they taste like bark.

3:00 PM
Spent 45 minutes on the elliptical reading The Passage.  Came home and had one of those cottage cheese cups.

7:15 PM
Made a delicious red lentil soup for dinner, very spicy and fragrant with cumin and lemon, without any rice or potatoes.  Also had an arugula salad.

9:06 PM
I'm trying to get the hamster to like me, so every night I put a little treat on my hand and try to get her to eat off of it.  Tonight I had a pecan in my palm, and lo and behold, she climbed right up with her soft little feet, picked it up and ate it.  She didn't even run away with it to her sky dome like she did last week.   She just sat there eating her nut.  She made it look so tasty... So now I'm eating some nuts.  Stealing the hamster treats...


  1. I feel the same way about "oyster" as a term--but love them I do!

  2. Thank you very much for the nice compliment about our Constant Comment tea! It may be the first time it has been called "fuddy duddy delicious" ... but we hope it won't be the last! Have a great day!
