I sit here in my kitchen

and think about life.

I've been taking care of my mom since she got her surgery. This mostly means I've been thawing out a lot of food she cooked prior to this week, fetching her water, and watching 30 Rock. 30 Rock is the best medicine. Unless, of course, it makes your mother laugh so hard that it hurts her abdomen, the area in which she had surgery, and this in turn makes her laugh more until tears come out of her eyes, and then nobody can quit laughing and crying.

Curse you, Liz Lemon!

Some of my friends got married recently. So that's cool.

What else have I been doing?

Staying home, really. The Boyfriend was here all of last week, and I of course gained a few pounds feeding him all of the great things Texas has to offer. Now I'm trying to lose it again, but of course, dieting in my book means "making a feeble attempt at portioning the Hamburger Helper your dad made and also trying not to eat so many damn Oreos."

Perhaps I'll go to the coffeeshop later.

There was something else I wanted to blog about, but I can't remember now.

Oh! I applied for jobs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Like, office jobs. Is it weird that I get excited about an office position? All of my jobs have been either artistic or menial, so I want a normal grown-up job, at least for a bit.

Green Soup

I don't know what possessed me, but I went to my favorite web site Food Gawker (brilliant, gorgeous food porn, which leads you to blogs and recipes-- go now) and decided to make green soup. Green soup is basically a bunch of vegetables ground up and cooked in water with a bunch of other delicious stuff in it.

I bought a big thing o' spinach
And then I cut up two gigantic things of broccoli (what are those called? Stalks? It's stalks, right?) along with celery, parsley, and... some other stuff. I forgot.
None of those things are tasty.

But then I added THESE mofos.
OH YEAHH. Garlic, lemon, garlic flavored olive oil, normal olive oil, onions, and ginger.

By the way, cutting raw ginger root is a painful experience. It burns your eyes.

Aaaaand then you put it all together and simmer it for 15 minutes.

Then, I put it in a food blender, but filled it to the top, which you are not supposed to do.

I didn't take a photo, but it looked something like this
(Instead of burns, pretend it's green shit)


And go forth to the end result.

It's hard to make green soup look appetizing.

I hate dieting.
But this soup is actually palatable. Especially with carbs, like these Market Street crackers. YAY CARBS

Here is my dinner. How friggin' low calorie is this? (As compared to my typical dinner, which is always either pizza, cake, or pizza... and cake.)
Green soup, crackers, diet soda. URRRGGHHHHHHH

Will it be delicious?

(I'm lying. It's not so great.)

And now for no reason whatsoever, here's a photo of me in giant blue glasses.

Also, West Nile is killing lots of people in Texas, so be sure to wear bug spray, okay?

Why I Can't be a Fashion Blogger

1. Because my outfits typically consist of things like this

2. Because my favorite color is gray
3. Because I know zero about fashion
4. What little I think I know about fashion is actually just me wishing I could pull off wearing stuff like this

...which I can only do in my dreams. My sparkly, Hello Kitty-filled dreams.
