Soft cookies

I've been sitting here for some time getting nothing done and wishing that I had something entertaining, quirky, funny, shocking, anything to write about. Instead I came up with this.....

When I'm stressed (as I am at the moment with the aftermath of the accident and other things that are happening in my life) I tend to lose my appetite. That is, my appetite for actual food. Normally, if I eat too many sweets, ice cream, or general junk, I feel sick, but when the stressors come on, baby watch out. My diet as of the last er....week. A surprisingly small amount of Cafe Rio, lots of Sonic's Tots, A medium sized bag of almond M&M's (in the finest of Easter pastels of course), lots of Diet Coke, water that I force myself to drink so I don't get dehydrated, a Wendy's side salad and large frosty and Diet Coke, eggs/potatoes/bacon from the hospital cafeteria, a Dove Dark bar, a container of Kozy Shack's rice pudding, remnants of ice cream from the freezer, Naked juice (so I feel like I'm actually being healthy and getting some nutrients), crap (as in I just realized something) that has seriously been my diet for the past week.....and now, I have some gluten free cookies that I was all excited about, and then opened the box to realize that they are chewy/soft, whatever, just not crispy. I HATE soft packaged cookies. This is a sad sad day. In that this is what I'm taking my time to write about. If I didn't detest it, I would go out and get me some V8 or something, which, by the way, is not something that you develop a taste for as you mature. Because I always thought I would like it when I got older for some reason, and that hasn't happened. Or I'm not mature. At least my taste buds aren't.

I want to go home and sleep. Without hurting. Or waking at 3am exactly in pain.

I'm pathetic. Console me. Please.

Ooh, I just saw 2 jobs postings that I think I would like. One is for the CIA, the other is a figure skating instructor. Look out.

Hey, if you want to pick up a few things at the grocery store on your way up here this weekend, we can make the BEST, BEST EVER gluten free HOMEMADE chocolate chip cookies. I got the recipie.

What if you work for the CIA and your cover is a figure skating instructor??

Cheer up, Charlie. Me and Grandpa Joe will make your troubles go away. (You've seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, right?)

I say as long as the pain lingers, it's a free pass to eat what you like.
And I'm with you on the soft packaged cookies...

mmmm...kozy shack's rice pudding. It is SO not the real thing, but there are those days when it just does the trick.

Send me some of those GF cookies? (the choc. chip ones, not the gross boxed ones)

Jess- Will do.

Manda- Have I seen it? What sort of question is that. Thank you X 12.

Rach-Yeah, I pretty much live for Kozy Shack these days....
