these are tense linguistic times

recently i read a blog where a girl listed what she ate everyday. i think she was trying to lose weight. anyway, it wasnt half bad. what does this have to do with post? nothing. except that i am tempted to just start writing what i eat everyday.*

today i walked to a quilting store conveniently located in downtown salt lake only to find it closes at 5:55. but that isnt the strange thing. the strange thing is that it was 6 pm on a work day and i had already been to three quilt stores. that story wasnt that great.

let me try again.

i am trying to grow a daffodil. i bought one of those grow your own daffodils pots. you may have seen them. i didnt realize it was a lot of work. first of all. i have to keep it somewhere cool for sixteen weeks and water it once a day. so its in my fridge. and i havent watered it once. i am betting against my daffodil making it. but i will keep everyone updated on its progress. towards death.

sorry its been a slow week.

*the internal battle goes something like this "no one wants to read about what you eat" "but i really like lists" "doesnt matter. boring" "it could be fun" "seriously is this still being debated" "granola bar, milk, green tea, sandwich, green tea, milk, veggie burger, banana" "that was horrible never do that again" "fine. jerk"

Oh no, you bought into the "grow your own daffodil" scheme as well? I just ended up with a pot with many green stalks, kind of like weeds, but more droopy.
But maybe you're one of the lucky ones. Perhaps you bought actual daffodils and not tall floppy grass bulbs. Tell me how it goes.

ps i heard that green tea is against the word of wisdom. but so is, depending on how you read it, eating meat in the summer

oh those sound delicious. i drink green tea hp which is some sort of supplement which is going to change my life. what is bubble tea?

the word of wisdom is pretty complicated but i think green tea is a borderline substance. so just think of me as edgy.
