Every night this week the produce section has looked like this due to juice fasts and master cleansing and other such nonsense.

Attachment 29310

I can't wait until people go back to normal eating.

This is how much cereal I need to bring in on Saturday night to make it through a winter Sunday.

Attachment 29311

And after.

Attachment 29312

There's today TJs behind the scenes look, lol.

A male thinking it's ok to stalk and harass you is NEVER your fault. I agree with Saria that it's total male privelege to think that's ok. I had a guy who I had been friends with for 3 years suddenly stop talking to me and freak out pestering all our mutual friends asking why I was mad at him, blah blah blah. I had always made it clear we were purely platonic, but he ran out of other people to obsess over and decided to ruin our friendship. He knew I went to a lot of minor league baseball games so went until he figured out the pattern of which days I went and what area I sat in, and would sit in the stands and stare at me. I had to recruit male coworkers and friends to go with me so I would feel safe to be at the games, and without my pointing him out they all knew who it was because he just stared the whole game. Ever game I went to.

I'm like the one you point to and go "yeah, that weird one in the corner".
I think I just want you to have my address.


And have you looked around here? Plenty of weirdos to go around! I'm the crazy horse lady, and I'm sure everyone thinks I'm nuts. And Spring is the crazy who lets her dog unwrap her gifts....

Maybe I could convince you to buy the cookie butter.

I'm not sure what there you actually would buy. You probably have more varied sources.

Luckily, others shop there so I get to keep my job, lol.

I almost bought cookie butter today, but I put it back, I'm not even sure if I like the taste of cookied flavored things.

I know they're BFFs, but I cringe every single time one of my FB friends refers to her Korean friends as "her little kimchi" and similar nicknames. Obviously said friend is okay with it, but ick, it makes me uncomfortable.

-So after I recovered from passing out I had to go back in the kitchen to clean up from dinner and I needed to cut some peel off a butternut squash. Oy, all I could think of was scrills' poor finger. I was super careful and super slow.

-On a positive sharp note, Mr. Spring got a new sharpening stone thingie today and my knives cut like buttah! That thing is way mo' bettah than my crappy knife sharpener. Sliced a butternut squash in two like I was a ninja.

-Letting Calvin unwrap gifts is perfectly normal, cray-cray horse lady.

I use a peeler to peel butternut squash. Easier than a knife.

scrills, dearest, they usually don't stitch you back together these days; they use the surgical form of crazy glue.

but the scars are just as bad as stitches if my right thumb and mouth are any indication of it...



please get it looked after. i didn't go to the hospital about my thumb for hours and i still don't have any feeling on the top of it 10 years later because i cut a nerve.

Of course they did because garlic is amazing and delicious and perfect and the more the better!

Shut up Saria.

My squash was already cooked so a peeler may have been harder to use due to squish factor.

I hope Scrills managed to make it to a hospital. 30 mins of (I assume steady) bleeding demands attention.

I think this tiny useless scrape on my hand is infected. Why does every cut in my hand ever get infected?

And why did my phone autocorrect infected to decayed?

And why do people in my apartment building crank the heat and leave the windows open??????? Now it's 40 billion degrees in my place. IN WINTER.

Ok... I'm done now. I'll have some amaretto and cranberry juice and chill out. Outside. Where it's cold.

Ok, after bleeding for about nearly 2 hours, I got up and went. I asked if they could just look at it (I was prepared to just get supplies from the drugstore). She could tell that I felt like an idiot and was really nice. You were right, no stitches, glue. The cuts weren't super deep (just bleeders, which started again as soon as she touched me). Plus, one cut was too close to my fingernail.

Thanks for putting up with me while I was being a wuss.

Before all of this, I re-organized my pantry and was all excited to share. The last step was putting blender up.

Saria, I agree with you about the crockpot and I fought the it for many years. But working full time and the home business are eating up so much time it's either crockpot or fast food/takeout during the week. I bought ingredients for 3 different meals today

Scrills, I'm so glad you went! I think we were all getting worried about you.

That's a totally stinky way to end being excited about a newly organized pantry. Although I still want to see pictures. I re-did mine last week and it's so nice to actually see what the heck is in there.

It wasn't profuse bleeding. just steady and non-stop. and painful. luckily, I had my tetanus shot updated last year when I started volunteering for Pre-K
