Me, yesterday: Oh man, I feel good. I had sex for the first time since February, I finally finished some projects I was behind on at work, and I even got my bricked Kindle shipped back to Amazon. Tomorrow’s gonna be even better! I’ll do some grocery shopping, get some veggies, finally start those autumn latkes¹, and even do some cleaning.
My period, today: Bitch, you thought.
Seriously, though. I did go to the store, but literally every decision I put in my cart was a bad one. Brownie mix. Cake mix. A carton of soft-baked chocolate fudge cookies (half of which are, um, no longer with us //burp//). A Cheesecake Factory dessert cup. Cereal. The only halfway healthy things I bought were preservative-free black forest ham and milk.
I’m trying to atone. I have this cooking on the stove right now, but with green beans instead of peas, because peas are demon pellets. Maybe I can redeem myself yet.
¹These are from Veganomicon
, and I’ve wanted to make them since the first time I saw the picture. They’re latkes made with shredded beets, carrots, and sweet potatoes. I decided to add some shredded yellow beets as well, to see if I could get them really fall-colored.
