    I eat sweet potato skins. Not sure how well they would shred.

    I peel my sweet potatoes. Never tried the skins. I've heard they should be peeled (maybe on nomnompaleo?) as they contain... (sorry brain fart) I think maybe the same as the green potato stuff that's not good for ya. Anyways, try it cause I'm all for short cuts when cooking from scratch all the freaking time!!! I spend WAY too much time in the kitchen, but it must be done to avoid the processed crap... wanders off mumbling that there must be a better way...

    I will try making a freezing shredded potatoes for hashbrowns and give a report on it later.

    Caitlyn and I had lunch with her dad today. Had a really good time. Went shopping afterward. She got a cute tee that says "horror movie" on it and has a pig and a chick looking at a plate of bacon & eggs. Too cute. I didn't find the raspberry cardigan but I did get a navy blue short sleeved cardigan with a lt blue v-neck tee a necklace, earrings and a bracelet to go with it for $25. Not a bad day. Oh, and I didn't get anymore emails delaying the start of my job so its a go for Monday!

    I was talking with a friend earlier about starting the job Monday and he said it seems that I am just unlucky. He confirmed where my head is at for years. I'm one unlucky person. I have only held 5 jobs for longer than a year. Been fired more times than I care to think about; affected by downsizings; companies falling apart; and just sheer boredom. Then it seems like its transferred to my personal life as well. Bankruptcy, my relationships, everything. I wonder if luck ever changes or do you just keep being dealt the same hand?

    During my latest bouts of agnostic rambling, I realized that every chance in life comes up much like a poker hand. You get 3 cards and they're most likely shit to begin. You go around and bluff, hoping to scare up some opportunity. You get another card, and have either something almost worthwhile or the beginning of something good. You go around and bluff again, this time putting in more effort and staring down your opponents. Then you get your fifth card, and your hand is either completely shit, mostly shitty, or the best hand you've seen that night. That's when you decide on how much you think you can bluff. The best poker players in my group have taken it all on a nothing hand. I've seen people fold a full house they could've won on. It's all in how you make your hand and yourself out to be. It's all in faking that you have the best damn hand on the face of the fucking planet until you stare the fuckers down.

    Maybe. I've never played poker but I somewhat understand what you're talking about. I'm one of those people that will take on too much to make others happy and put my wants back. Like taking on a promotion right after my mom died. My head was telling me to wait for it, but my boss at the time and my heart said go for it. Should've waited. I probably would still be working for the company. Oh well, shit happens.

    You bluffed without feeling out your competition. Shit happens. Get back in the game and look hard at the cards you've been handed recently to see if they're salvagable or if it'll hafta be all bluff.
