They're ok, but I feel out-of-touch-old watching it. I've never felt that at an Austen adaptation.

I'll be spending the day cooking and emptying the bowl catching the leaked water from my hot water tank.

Oh joy.

I dreamt that my favaourite lecturer told me that I was being too hard on myself for not getting straight As last semester. He seemed quite fond of me and had my best interest at heart.

I miss that man.

That milk in bags is just so bizarre. Is it not messy? I can't imagine have a big bag of liquid in my house and it not ending up all over the floor!

no... you slide the bag of milk into the jug in the photo and then snip a corner off to pour it.

Hmm, I still think it's bizarre. I guess we just get used to what we have. I suppose it's less plastic to landfill though.

I've seen milk in bags here in the UK. The company also sell a reusable fridge door jug to put the bag in. I can and can't see the point of them.

Starmie, don't you recycle plastic in Aus?

I forget and then get a jarring reminder of just how religious a lot of Dominicans are.

Also, I get really sick of the constant othering Dominicans do of Haitians. It's not a good look, people! When we were in the DR, it was just the general tone when addressing "the Haitians" that frequently made me uncomfortable. Or like yesterday somehow something on TV my mom was watching led to zombie talk and could it be true that there are zombies in Haiti. Y'all can imagine my reaction. Then she was like "I don't mean like they stay like that, just that they give them these herbs, drugs that temporarily make them like that". She pointed out how of course I don't believe in anything,

I could never understand it either. How can two countries that share one island be so....different? I mean, historically I get it, but I don't get it.

I adore Haitian history and culture. I remember teaching a class one day and wondering out loud," where would we be without the Haitian Revolution?"

having Target right next to the gym KILLS ME because I'm pretty much incapable of just walking by Target and not going in and buying a million things. and after I go the gym, I always feel like I deserve a reward, and then Target AND Starbucks are RIGHT THERE. who's idea was that??

I need to buy some cook books, I need to go to the used book store and see what they've got

Next weekend, I will attempt to make carnita tacos.

And guacamole, yes, I need guacamole.

Oohhh and some pico de gallo.

Can it be next Saturday already??

I feel badly for you!
Turns out, it's really hard to test for chemical allergies. Allergist tests your reactions to things found in nature (food, tree, pollen) but for chemical allergist, the test is to sit in the doctor's office and consume more and more of what you are allergic to while they monitor your reaction. Fun.

The doc said that I will basically have to read labels for the rest of my life and avoid foods with high levels of sulfites. Different foods have more per serving. Some brands have "no added sulfites" but will still have smaller amounts of "naturally occurring" sulfites.

Right now, he had me on meds to reduce the swelling in my throat. I never want to stop taking this stuff. I feel so much better.

Sounds like I will be experimenting with bottling my own sauces :-)

I actually just listened to a podcast on this very subject. Here's a link to the article if interested:
