No sleep til Brooklyn

Sorry for the sporadic posting. I still have so much to do, but at least things will let up a little after tomorrow.

Had lunch at Patrick's with my grandparents, great-aunt, cousin and her daughter today. I started out with some berry darjeeling tea (after having about a pot of coffee). It tasted a lot like Wild Berry Zinger; I used to have this all the time when I was little and visited my uncle in Wisconsin over the summer.

Egg-white omelet with spinach, mushrooms "and a little cheese"... not so little! I ate the whole thing, the toast (with strawberry jelly), the berries and about half the home fries.

And took this cute little ketchup home. I kind of want to dress it in baby clothes and tuck it in bed... is that weird?

First JamFrakas bar! Product review tomorrow, I promise.

Katie and I studied at Starbucks, just so I could taste this Hazelnut Signature Hot Chocolate that my friend Caitlin has been raving about. Oh mama, this was delicious, and tasted just like "melted nutella" as she said. I forgot to ask for no-whip, but I got a Tall and it was made with skim milk, so I don't think I even need to look up the nutritional info. Yes, denial is the theme of the day.

We watched Ivan's Childhood in Russian Cinema today. The last few films we've seen have been so good! I think Burnt By The Sun is still my favorite, but it's a toss-up between Ivan and Repentance for second place.

I had a cup of Coconut Chai tea with skim milk and honey, a Reese's cup, and a Twizzler. Gotta have study fuel!

Leftover salad with a Morningstar Farms Grillers Prime and fat-free Kraft single (no, I don't actually like these, but it's not as bad when it's mixed with the burger taste) and some pickle chips.

With a new salad dressing! Newman's Own Light Sundried Tomato Dressing. It was good. And yes... next to it, that is what you think it is. There are times... many times... in a young student's life when she is struck with a particular feeling: desperation. And that itch can only be scratched by a particular unpleasant yet effective neon-mustard-yellow drink: Sugar Free Redbull. I am not proud of my choice, but there's only so much coffee a girl can drink in a day.

And a nice juicy grapefruit.

I'll probably be noshing all night... there will be no sleep for Veggie. Hope everyone had a nice weekend... hopefully the light will be a little closer to the end of the tunnel the next time I check in!
