Notes From The Weekend

*Bought tickets to see Erykah Badu in concert in March. So. Excited.

*I studied with a few classmates who all smoke (3 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday). This morning I noticed small red blemishes on my face. My precious face. They've tarnished it with their cancer sticks, tarnished it I say!

*I feel good about attempting to live more simply and healthier. Gave up cable and fast food and giving up items that serve no function around the house.

*In search of some fine bed linens. I want the white, hotel look.

*Check the poll in the sidebar. Out of 10 votes, only 2 consider Sunday as the start of a new week. Interesting.

*Upcoming book review blog post soon (maybe Wednesday if I have the chance).

*While looking at different funeral home websites for a research project, I stumbled upon this gem. He is apparently a DJ in addition to his funeral home duties. "We can funeralize your loved one at a price from..." and "This ain't no ranky-dank funeral home. This is a first class funeral home run by first class people" are sending me to an early grave myself. Please look at his website. For me. I am not responsible if you fade to black after you view it.


*Here is a recipe I cooked up. This was so full of yum due to the different seasonings:
Rigatoni with zucchini, diced tomatoes, red, yellow, and orange bell peppers. Used nutritional yeast to give it an almost parmesan flavor (you can find it in the bulk aisle of natural-food grocery stores and regular well-stocked grocery stores and it's full of vitamin B12), red pepper flakes, and chicken seasoning (which is basically paprika, garlic, onion, pepper, and some other spices). SO. YUMMY.

6 jewels of thought:

I'm Done!! The website is awful!!!! Skipper Lee should be ashamed and the fact that it's in Houston seals the deal! Houstonites (no offense) are insane! LOL

Hey Lady!
*Sorry to hear about your second hand smoke experience. Hope your skin/you recover soon.

*You gave up cable! Wow! Much respect! I ain't there yet but I must say that is very admirable.

*I was so hoping those quotes were from you and not the funeral home site. That belongs on a wall of shame somewhere.

I like your healthy resolutions and I'm on the fence with the smoking deal {hangs head low} but yeah the cigarettes are pretty bad and fast food also. I'm gonna give FF because the prices has gone up tremendously ugh

lol about the funeral home guy

MMM: Hey, this is not a representative sample of Houstonians, lol. I do not claim him as Houston brethren.

CO: My skin is better now. It's just weird seeing the immediate effects of smoke on the skin. Yeah, we have Netflix now instead of cable and it has been so worth it. We're reading and talking and sharing with each other a lot more. Oh, and I don't think I could make up those quotes if I tried.

D: I know. I'm done right along with you.

THG: Are you trying to stop smoking? Best wishes with that, I know it is difficult. I concur about the fast food. Whataburger is the devil!

Chanel: I seriously cannot believe that website.

All: If anyone is subscribing to this comment section, I updated this post with a couple more tidbits including a recipe photo! Hip hop hooray!
