Well, that was a good run while it lasted. With all that I was posting lately about South Beach, I turned right around today and took a meal off.
Ever since we discovered cauliflower mashed potatoes, that’s been a nice go-to that feels like cheating (but technically isn’t, since it’s made with cauliflower). That said, it’s also made of a great deal of sodium, so there’s your trade-off.
Despite the title (it was just something random that popped in my head), I really haven’t been ignoring the bathroom scale. I know enough to not try to weigh myself every single day, given the daily fluctuations that exist outside of any diet/regimen. Usually, I’ll hop on the scale prior to taking my morning shower. But since we began South…
“Physically, the 500-year experiment consists of 800 simple glass vials containing either Chroococcidiopsis or another bacterium, Bacillus subtilis. The glass vials have been hermetically sealed with a flame. […] Every other year for the first 24 years, and then every quarter century for the next 475, scientists are supposed to come test the dried bacteria for viability and DNA damage.”
It was curious to both me and Liz that the windows were taken out, as part of whatever’s going on. Maybe it had nothing to do with constrcution, and was just easier to move some equipment in this way? Either for the work or for the future business?
While I did get some rest over the weekend, it was also a fairly busy time. In addition to working Saturday, I did a lot of errands as well. Sunday night, when I put my head on my pillow… it prompted a great deal of coughing. I didn’t get a great night’s sleep.
While this was totally functional and made sense, I also thought it looked hilarious. So here we are.
But Bellue’s style was a revelation. I think it’s the inclusion of the false harmonics that take it up a notch for me, as I simply couldn’t believe he’s making all of that happen at the same time.
Today, Liz and I both spent our Satuday doing work work. She ran some errands in the morning, and by the time 1PM or so rolled around… the two of us were both at our computers, working. Funny thing was: I was at home, and she was at her office (downtown).
With the first day of spring having already passed us by, I figured it would be good to show a few photos of what Liz has been up do. She began her outdoor plans on Sunday, and has been getting her seedlings set up in our kitchen (in the past, they’ve been set up in the basement).
Fast forward to today, and I woke up with a sore throat. And unlike prior days, it just stayed around. At work, right around 10 AM, my nose began running like a faucet. So much so that I had to get up and go to the bathroom a few times. So much so that I began to seriously worry about becoming dehydrated.
My commute is short enough that I don’t really listen to much audio while I’m on the train. So the few times I catch any radio or news is either in the mornings (NPR while preparing breakfast). Or in the evenings, when I’m preparing dinner (for the bunnies or for us humans).
A few hours later, I found the clip on the WGN website. And it was (for a time) the main story on the Morning News page!
The lyrics are… fine. And the song itself is quite short (hence me wanting to introduce a few other songs). But the choice to fixate on this particular song seems more pathological than some of my other choices. Maybe it’s the length, and just how quick it is (under two minutes).
