Well, it looks like I’ve got some good news and some bad news to share. Due to the fact that I’ve always been one to save the best for last, I’ll break the bad news to you first.
The bad: My little old computer is about to bite the dust.
I’ve had my white Sony VAIO for about 5 years after my parents gave it to me as an early graduation present during high school. After trekking this thing around with me practically everywhere I go, overcharging the battery (whoops 8) ) one too many times, and filling up the memory with immeasurable pictures of food and inanimate objects (kind of like these), my little girl has begun to show the first signs of moving on to a better place.
I actually captured this picture at a good moment, but sometimes out of the blue, the screen goes NUTS and starts flashing all types of lines across the picture. Kind of like The Ring, PC style?
Every now and then she decides to calm down and go back to normal, but last night the lines got so intense that I couldn’t even make out anything on the screen at all!
What do you guys think—should I wait until she breathes her last breath or start looking for new replacements now? Any good recommendations?
The Good: This little beauty arrived via FedEx last night
I won this little number through Chocolate Covered Katie’s giveaway a few weeks ago, and have been eager to get my hands on it ever since! Obviously, I’ve already looked into a number of ice cream recipes, including guilt-less healthier versions too
Well, at least that’s what I was doing until my computer starting going all “The Ring” on me last night. Come to think of it, maybe I should refrain from freaking myself out with references of zombie girls coming through my computer screen…
After a 2 mile run this morning in place of Bodyrock (more on that later 8) ) I snacked on 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt + Stevia with a chopped pear and cinnamon mixed in.
Remember when I said that my noodley dinner was a beast? Well, I lied. In fact, I think the dictionary may have to reevaluate it’s definition of “beast” too after this bad boy.
Romaine, chopped purple cabbage, avocado, kidney beans, balsamic vinegar, and ginger dressing.
Served with a handful of some new-to-me hemp chips –
Muy bueno! I’m a lover of natural hemp protein powder so I figured that I’d give these a try. Although they only have 3 grams of protein per serving, they ended up being pretty darn tasty and worthy of a repeat in the future.
I’m about to go whip up a quick-fix for dinner, then catch up over coffee with an old friend.
Now, what to make….
A bit to think about: What type of computer do you own?
