I decided I needed to take my pants off. It improved my disposition greatly.

I’m just a regular woman, living in Michigan, 22 years old, 2 cats, there’s nothing extraordinary or fantastic about me, so I assume that my thoughts can’t be too exciting to anyone other than myself. But that’s quite all right, because this blog is first and foremost, for myself and nobody else. This will hold the chronicles of my boring life as I try to change myself for the better, I’m hoping to write every day, or every other day at least, but we’ll just have to see.

Self-esteem boost for the day: I'm a gorgeous fat girl.

I love modern appliances, especially modern kitchen appliances. When I moved into my new apartment, at the age of 18, I received housewarming gifts for Christmas; a waffle iron, a crock-pot, and a little food processor. I’ve been ogling the KitchenAid stand mixers for months; I love kitchen appliances!

But no modern kitchen appliance holds the place in my heart that the microwave does. Putting aside the quality meals that can be made from leftovers alone, there are supermarket shelves full of foods that can be made in the microwave. Frozen vegetables that you cook in the bag, rice and noodle dishes made in a microwavable container, even desserts on the store shelves that after two or three minutes of heat turn into decadent molten cakes; TV dinners, pizza, sandwiches, popcorn and all manner of foods can be cooked in that little box in the kitchen.

Why the ode to a common appliance? Quite simply, I love my microwave and I’m pleased to have it. I’ve had my share of fantastic meals lately, made of nothing but leftovers and microwavable rice or noodle dishes. Living alone, I don’t like cooking every single day, not only is it a waste of dishes, but it’s tedious and frustrating! Last week I fried up some lean turkey sausage, and throughout the week I’ve been eating it, reheated, with microwave cooked vegetables and a starch. No pans to scrub, no cooking utensils to wash, no having to clean up the stove afterwards, just a lovely meal within 15 minutes or less.

Thank you microwave, I love you.

As for the rest of my day, I woke up at around midnight feeling lost and dazed, I’d been having odd dreams, probably attributed to previewing the Japanese gay boy porn that I’ve come across lately. I also dreamt about mandragora, go figure. I walked for 30 minutes, just over a mile, started out a bit more energetic than I should have, and was completely beat by the time the 30 minutes were over. Damn music got me too into it, yes it is possible to dance on a treadmill, yes I probably looked like a complete loser, but it was fun.

Drastically running low on hard drive space currently, I mean, I’m sure this problem could be solved by, well, downloading less shit and deleting the stuff I haven’t used in ages, my manga folder, for example. But I’m a squirrel, metaphorically, I horde! I gather files like acorns and horde them, guarding them viciously, my files, no touchy! Of course there’s no money to buy another external hard drive, or this lovely external DVD/CD burner I found at Newegg.com, but I want it anyway, and if I keep running low on space, I’m going to need it. I’ve got about 25 dollars stashed away, hopefully I can make that grow by 100 in the next few weeks while not maxing out my hard drive space. I have around 15 gigs left, between my two drives. Fuck.

I really hate my schedule sometimes, waking up at midnight would be all fine and good if there were something for me to fucking do. I’ve walked, I’ve eaten, I’ve washed dishes, I’ve refilled the humidifier…and…aside from laundry that I may or may not do, there’s nothing left for the day other than watching TV, playing video games, and fucking around on the PC. Nobody’s online of course, I chatted with Rachel a bit, said ‘ello to Kinny when she popped up for a couple minutes, but that’s that. Currently I’m surfing around on Snopes.com for light, whimsical reading, watching VH1/MTV (switching between the two when real crap comes on. It’s bullshit, MTV and VH1 only show music videos at 5am or so, so much for music television, too much fucking reality shit…but that’s a rant for another day!) and checking out the video that just finished downloading, don’t think it’s my thing, the guys are far too muscular and clean-cut. I think I’ll just delete it and clear up some extra hard drive space. There’s a white reggae rapper on MTV right now, apparently an orthodox Jew doing reggae music. That’s bloody weird. I’ve got nothing against Judaism or reggae for that matter, I just never thought I’d see the two mix. Oh, Fall Out Boy is on now. My guilty pleasure. Rawr!

On another tangent, why am I so bleeding hungry lately? I’m trying not to overeat, but ever since I started working out, I’ve been ridiculously hungry. I’m eating three full meals a day, more than I usually do, and I’m starving! Listen metabolism! I’m trying to fucking lose weight here! Don’t reward me for exercising by forcing me to eat an extra meal a day! Don’t fuck with me Metabolism! I’ve got Slimfast and I know how to use it! Just try me, I dare ya.
