My mutant power; plus, musical musings

My current blog entries–or lack thereof–would indicate that I haven’t eaten food in awhile, but that is not actually the case. Yes, I’m afraid that I have been lying through omission, and so now I will come clean.

Last night I ate:

  • probably four ounces of roast chicken
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 2 cups garden salad with 2 tbsp ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup green seedless grapes
  • I also had two Slim-Fast shakes, one of which was regrettably made with some whole milk, as I have exhausted the skim milk supply. Later on in the night as I grew more despondent and bored, I ate

  • one fat-free yogurt
  • and

  • one Slim-Fast snack bar
  • I’m pretty sure that’s all the damage I did, though.

    My only meal today consisted of:

  • one thick piece of buttery garlic bread
  • three bites of spaghetti, taken before the realization that the meat was pretty old and didn’t really taste all that great
  • 1/2 cup salad with a smidgen of ranch dressing
  • one quarter pounder with cheese
  • one medium fry
  • one medium Dr Pepper
  • After the fiasco that was the dinner I’d slaved over for a whole hour (gasp!), Sean and I ran out to Checkers. I felt ill for a little while, but it soon passed. (I swear, my mutant power is the ability to digest ANYTHING. This is, perhaps, not so much a power as it is a curse.)

    As I ate my lovely burger and fries (and drank that lovely cup of caffeine), I began to feel much better. In the chat room I was bouncing off the walls, and as you can see below I was also playing Dynomite. Too. Much. Fun. I didn’t beat any of my high scores, but I was really enjoying myself. I was also talking out loud. For example, when the game said “Uh, Whirley’s coming!” I would respond, “Come on, Whirley! Let’s be friends! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Then, of course, I would whack him. Other comments included “Dammit,” “Shit,” and “AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!”

    Somehow Celine Dion’s song “My Heart Will Go On” came up as a topic for discussion in the chat, and so I pulled out my old, dusty mp3 and gave it a listen. Such a good song. After that I started waxing sentimental about old pop music I used to listen to, so I played several mp3s from Madonna’s Ray of Light album. I really loved that album for awhile; back at GRW I used to listen to it all the time. That and Ace of Base’s The Sign.

    Right now I’m listening to Donna Lewis’ “I Love You Always Forever”. I was living in Huntsville when this song first came out. At the time I was somewhat infatuated with one of the guys taking ground school with me out at this little podunk airport north of town. He had this dark, musty look to him…he looked like he had some good stories to tell. And he was always going on adventures. In fact, eventually he stopped coming to ground school because he’d not only 1) gone to Germany but 2) fallen in love with a girl he’d met while there. Guys like that just fascinate me. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in a relationship with one…but then I don’t know if guys like that are stable enough to have a long-term relationship.

    In any case, whenever the Donna Lewis song came on, I would picture his face in my mind…and when she sang the line “You’ve got the most unbelieveable blue eyes I’ve ever seen,” I would think “green”…because boy, did he ever.
