Hi gang! Here’s the skinny, my desktop computer, aka The Gimp (what?), is being updated.  The OS is getting cleaned up and squeaky clean.  That’s the good news, the bad news is that it is out of commission for a bit.  Why? Well because my main machine runs Linux and while a great OS, it can be a fickle little bitch. So Scott is smacking that bitch up and putting it back in it’s place.  In the mean time I have to use my laptop (Munin) and well he’s an old man.  And my old man doesn’t like you getting too fancy with him.  Fancy to him means using some sort of media or websites with lots of those newfangled talkie pictures.  I can’t even use my own pictures because it causes him to start yelling at me and then his dentures come flying out.  It’s not a pretty thing. So for the time being the post right now is going to be just text. Sorry about that! Also if you’ve emailed me, I probably didn’t get it because mail is down as well.  It’s sort of technology madness around here at the moment.

But that’s okay! Because yesterday was pretty boring eats and activity-wise so you aren’t missing much. :D

I got up yesterday morning at 7am and had a glorious 9 hours of sleep.  Amazing!  I did some bloggy stuff while sipping on some coffee.  And when Scott got up, I made us some oats for breakfast!  Basic blueberry oats that I’ve been in love with recently.  Scott did some things on my desktop and we decided what we were going to do with our day.

Then the skies opened up and it started pouring rain and thundering.  I don’t know about you but when it’s that gloomy and gross outside I don’t want to do a whole lot.  We ended up gaming for the day!  Same game, Army of Two, which we’ve played before and this is our second time through the game.  For a co-op game it’s not too shabby.

Lunch for me was a salad and smoothie!  The salad was:

  • Mixed greens
  • Chopped parsnip
  • Chopped sundried tomato
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds

With balsamic and oil on top. For some reason I think there might have been something else in the salad but since I can’t see the picture, I don’t know! :p

And a smoothie:

  • 2C unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1C water
  • Kale
  • Carrot
  • Cantaloupe pieces
  • Frozen pineapple
  • Frozen peaches
  • Frozen blueberries

And the last piece of bread from our dinner out Friday night.  Mmmm! I didn’t finish it though as it was a bit too carby for me for lunch.

After lunch it was still more gaming.  I can’t remember the last time we had a day where we could just laze around and do nothing!  After a while the rain finally decided to break and we were able to take Rocky out for a nice walk.  Then we came home to some dinner.

Keeping with the simple and lazy theme of the day, I heated up some leftover pizza from Thursday for dinner.  YUM!  We played a bit more and got carried away playing until 10pm. :o  I have to be careful how long in the evenings I game or else my brain won’t shut off and I’ll have dreams all night long about the game and me being in it. :p

When we stopped, we watched house hunters and sipped on some white wine and munched on some Mexican wedding cookies from WF.  I went to bed late, going on midnight! I got sucked into an Iron Chef America episode.  I didn’t finish it though and was able to cut myself off and hit the hay. :D
