Friday Fragments

Also an anagram for "Farmstead Frying"

♠ Yesterday, as I opened a new pack of mini Beefaroni tins for my 10:30 lunch, I noticed that the metal lids were now tattooed with bold, loud warnings. Apparently, beefaroni lids are sharp when you peel them back, and someone couldn't figure this out on their own.

♠ I've never accidentally slashed my wrists on a Beefaroni lid, but when I worked in the school nurse's office in elementary school, I once stuck my tongue to a metal ice-cube tray to see if it would stick. It did. When the nurse inspected my tongue, she asked if I had "eaten any sharp food this morning, like Doritos".

♠ It's been a while since I had Doritos, or any snack chips at all for that matter. In a futile experiment to eat healthier, I have not purchased chips or bacon (for standalone breakfasts) in over four months. I did have Velveeta Shells and Cheese three times this week though.

♠ My weight makes very little sense, since I lost two pounds immediately after Thanksgiving dinner, and then gained a pound after twenty minutes on the exercise bike. Perhaps it was a pound of knowledge, since I like to read while biking.

♠ The problem I have with reading is that I prefer to have books finished than be in the middle of one, so getting a new book pretty much delays anything else I'm doing until the book is done. When I wasn't working yesterday, I was starting and finishing a 400 page book from my Mom, Ender's Shadow (review on Thursday, as usual).

♠ The weekend should be light and lazy (as December weekends should be). With dinner plans tonight and tentative plans to see Anna and Ben tomorrow for a 12 of 12 featuring only Ella, I'll spend the daylight hours working on my Museday composition and beating the last world in the new Mario game. On Sunday, we're visiting one side of the dodecahedron that is Rebecca's family in Silver Spring, and might even stop by the FLAMING LOG OF DEATH near the White House on the way home.

♠ Today's post is short because it captures my essence. More importantly, I have the day off and have other things to get started on (like making Shells and Cheese for lunch). Have a great weekend!
