  • OH bloody hell, i figured out why i plateaued. I just started tracking my food on Cronometer and found out i was eating WAY more carbs than i thought. My banana a day habit alone is enough apparently O_O
    Also i think that rice flour was dodgy! Serves me right :/ Sick tummy this morning, urrrgh.


    Ok so i had to add this, because douchebags piss me off!

    I walked down to the fruit market, which is on one of the main roads here in New Westminster, just for background.
    Anyway, I did get a good haul (head of kale, bunch o'garlic, garam masala, tree tomatoes) but as i was paying....
    I saw a hit and run!
    This old guy was opening his car door (and he did look both ways) and some douche slammed RIGHT into his door! And carried on driving, what the crap? That part of 6th is COVERED in cameras, as there's like three pedestrian crossings plus a lot of businesses. I hope the douche is caught.
    The old dude thankfully was ok (i asked) apart from being a bit pissed off.
    What the hell is wrong with people these days? They could have killed him!

    • Sore toes! A friend talked me into getting Fitflops, though I said I get blisters from straps between the toes, and here I am with a whopper on my left second toe! Why do I listen? But, I have to admit they felt really good until I got the blister. Maybe long narrow feet aren't designed for between the toe shoes.

      I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

      • My gripe today: Being sick. I have a cold that's going around... but I have almost no sniffling or sneezing, so no one around me has any sympathy, even though they're the jerks I caught it from.

        (Yeah, I came to work, still semi-sick. Might as well sit around being bored here, right?)

        • GOTD: My clumsy moments. Fell down on slippery pavement getting into my daughter's kid-wagon; got my new clothes muddy, and my backside--and my ego-- bruised with it.

                • My router keeps randomly blocking my paranormal group's website, as well as the email from said group. Router company says that's "impossible" and offers no solution, so every two weeks I have to reset the router and reconfigure all my security settings in order to get into the website and complete reports for investigations/receive email.

                  When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

                  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.

                  I told them they didn’t understand life.

                      Perhaps the "forces" are trying to tell you something. Like: Stay off these waves.

                      • In most states, there is an de facto rule that you are a successful driver if, at bare minimum, you can get to your desired location without deliberately hitting another vehicle. This is merely optional in Connecticut. You get bonus points for driving directly into flowing traffic and convincing yourself that it was the nearest person's fault. Use the "throw my hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care" hand gesture in order to imply blame.

                          Maybe wear them for shorter times until between your toes toughens. I can't wear Fitflops, my instep is too high - can't get my feet in them.

                            Most definitely ~ and if you're on a motorcycle, the lines that the cars are staying in between do not apply to your navigation. Proceed however which way will get you to your destination. I understand the shortest distance between A and B is a straight line so please ignore my horn accompanied by my profanities.

                              Sounds like Vancouver. The speed limits are just a general suggestion, lol! So is signalling.
