Happy Halloween to you! I am at work, posting a quick blog. We are celebrating Halloween here, kids are coming in later this afternoon to trick-or-treat and there is also a haunted house up on the fourth floor. Loving all the extra sugar around the office too! I am Pocahontas and am dressed up at work along with a few others. Definitely worth the smiles when I walk by friends in the hall. Be safe and don't get run over tonight, whether you are out trick-or-treating or are going to parties/bars.
Man, Halloween is about two weeks away. My costume is TBD. Dressing in skimpy clothing is a cop-out I won't partake in this year, so I need something creative. It wouldnt be a bad idea for the government to consider making Halloween on the last Friday of every October. How can people with jobs properly celebrate this Pagan/Celtic holiday when we have work the next day? I mean, a Wednesday? Hump day? The guaranteed sleep deprevation from Wednesday to Thursday is nearly enough to deter me from going out at all. Nearly.
Here are a few pics from late-August: oh I miss tanktops!
I think that is a good quote to start the week off.
When my alarm clock buzzed I swallowed and found I have a sore throat. Man, this is the second cold bug I've had this year, and we're only into October! An omen of things to come or getting them out of the way at once, let's hope its the latter of the two.
While reading various food blogs this morning, I saw Dr. Andrew Weill published a list of 11 fruits and vegetables that are okay to buy in their conventionally. Meaning... not as harmful in their non-organic form. In alphabetical order, the list is as follows: 1. Asparagus 2. Avocados 3. Bananas 4. Broccoli 5. Cabbage 6. Corn 7. Kiwi 8. Mangos 9. Onions 10. Pineapples 11.Peas
In other news, Heroes is on tonight at 9p.m. on NBC. The first two episodes haven't been as good as last season, but I'm still holding out hope for it ;).
Our city is officially descending into winter's rainy season. I turned on the heater in my house this morning. The last time I was chilly enough for that was about six months ago. Break out the chai tea, good book and a blanket...no more running Greenlake in the evenings. I'm going into hibernaton mode y'all!
I'm a bit of - confidence, independence, fiesty, moxie, joie de vivre, style, organization and extroversion - all rolled into one petite Korean.
Spare time: going to the gym, dining al fresco, walking to Hermosa Beach, spending reading food blogs.
Striving for a life of: Accountability, gratitude, optimism, adventure, continual growth/learning.
