Meat Free Monday..

going along with VUBOQ's Meat Free Monday theme..I present my less than exiting lunch.. Salad, Red wine Vinaigrette Dressing and Tomato wrap. Boring, but there is something about Vinegar which gives me a rush, probably why I am also addicted to Ketchup & Bread & Butter Pickles, but that's another post. It was delicious despite the simplicity. (yea it's 10:35 and i've eaten lunch already .. keeps the metabolism working to eat small meals several times a day)

So the final decision was Benchwarmers over Silent Hill , now that doesn't mean we won't see Silent Hill, because we are probably set to check it out this coming Saturday but I think we made a great choice. It was hard to find playing at a convenient time and I had to drive about 20 minutes farther than normal for us to see it, but not one of us was disappointed. If you like Adam Sandler flics, you have to see this, if you don't and are too uptight and humorless to laugh at idiotic slapstick cheesy ass scenes, corny one-liners and unrealistic parody then save yourself the $10.00 you will hate this film. We will be buying this when released to DVD and watching it again and again.

I am having the worst time getting up in the morning lately, and have to end up throwing together posts at the last minute. I am not so sure why, I go to bed by 11 and am definitely wide awake when the alarm goes off at 5:30 but still, I can't drag my ass out of bed and into the kitchen to make some tea (I gave up coffee a couple months ago) until the last possible moment and it seems of late that "last possible moment" is much later than it should be. Generally I need to be in the shower by 7:20 to get out the door by 7:40, I never make it anymore and usually get to work 5-10 minutes late (which isn't really a big deal, I don't get in trouble but still). UGH..it's 725 right now I'm already late.

As a result of rushing, my morning posts are not only late, but thrown together too quickly. I think I have to start doing this the night before, when the clock isn't ticking and I don't feel a sense of urgency to "wrap it up". Oh well, aaaaanywaaaay.. we didn't do much else yesterday except watch some TV, burn a couple CDs, eat lunch and drive around a bit. I should have done some laundry or cleaned the place but eh.. I never feel like doing that stuff when they are here (naturally). Saturday my older son told me all about his recent trip to DC and gave me the most amazing gift (have to take a photo for tomorrow's post) it's a beautiful replica bank of the Capital building and I LOVE it, now to find a suitable place where my cat from hell won't jump up and knock it over. Ok...so the shower is calling me and I have to make my lunch.

Sweetness, don't ever just think you HAVE to do anything. That is the real killer of creativity. Haves are the shits and yet if you give yourself a break and take a day or two to collect your thoughts, your pot will overflow with new things you want to share with your biotches here in the blogosphere.
Mwah on the well defined abs of yours,

Well rushed together or not I am always happy to read your updates (unless it is bad news in which case I am not happy but...well you get the point...).

Have a good, peaceful meat-free Monday, babe!

Have a great and happy day!

Yikes. That's harsh. I don't enjoy that kind of film at all, yet I would hardly consider myself uptight; I just have a different sense of humor.

Now if you'll excuse me, a slab of bacon is calling, and I need to start marinading the ribs to grill for dinner...

Hooray for Meat Free Monday!!

(Now let's start working on the rest of the week!) :)

I agree with not "making yourself have to do anything"...especially when blogging. I think we all go through a "OMG I HAVE to blog" "I'm late with my blog post" phase. Not sure why.

And yay for meat-free Monday.

Here's my hippy salad and it is delish...

Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Apples
Avocados

And for the dressing...

Olive oil
Soy Sauce
Lemon or lime juice
Garlic powder
Cayenne Pepper
Curry
Salt

Bon apetit! And yes, my own invention from a day when I had nothing but the above in the house...

hey sweetness, been away for a while, took my self to west virgina to clear my head, if you like to eat out, and like all veggies, go to a place called PANERA, i think they are nationwide, could be mistaken though....anyways.........have a great day buddy........:)

Blogger dave in cleveland said...
check out www.panera.com and find your city...you won't be sorry.....

How sweet of you to think of me with this line! You're right though. I'd rather drive sharp pieces of bamboo under my fingernails than to throw money at mainstream junk like this.

My meat free monday is shot because I'm grilling chicken out on the patio at this very moment (it is my sunday after all). I'm on the verge of a blog meltdown myself. Stay tuned. xoxo

Blogger Nick said...
maybe you should try getting up at 5:00 am instead and give yourself an extra half hour? If you are running late, what do you fear the most, being late for work or posting on your blog?

Blogger Jim said...
I'm liking your veggie meal and agreeing with the vinegar thing, it adds zip! Next, we have to get you going on Aleppo Pepper and Smoked Spanish Paprika!

I had to cut back on the post frequency too, Jim, it was becoming a chore rather than fun.

Blogger Donnie said...
Benchwarmers looks funny - I definitely wanna see it.

Blogger Sangroncito said...
I have a ketchup addiction, too...I always thought it was the sugar, not the vinegar.

Blogger Brad said...
Somehow just the thought of you and that shower.... hmmmmmmm never mind LOL. Glad you had a good time with the boys and hell I don't blame you a bit for ignoring the "chores" when they are around and wanting to spend time with them. Hell I find many excuses for ignoring some of the chores that aren't nearly so legitimate as that one!

"a beautiful replica bank of the Capital building and I LOVE it, now to find a suitable place where my cat from hell won't jump up and knock it over."

Sounds like a great gift from a great son. Did he enjoy the trip? What all did he see down there. I was down in DC on Saturday, mighta seen him and not known it. :) but the cat from hell part...see? what did I tell ya???

luv ya!

Has my short term memory completely gone south, or have you put up a new banner? Well, whether it's new or not, I love it. The "old country" theme is really touching.
I'd give a lot to see you in your babouchka.
love,
DEL

I have just settled down to watch the conclusion of David Blaines experience in the ball of water tonight and I had to come in here and post this. You do realize Jim that you look alot like that guy!

Blogger Michael said...
Mmmm....vinegar! It's one of my fav things. Everyone seems to think that I'm a little crazy because I sometimes take nips of straight vinegar. Well I like it so..? :)

I haven't heard of this Meatless Monday but being raised in Texas...that's kinda hard for me to comprehend hehe

*Hugs!*

Silent Hill was so incredibly bad, I honestly can't believe it was made. Seriously.
