It’s time for another addition of…
I can’t say I actively tried to live up to the extra serving of veggies, because it was one of those days where you just hope you make it through the day and if food is involved, then that’s just a plus. Today I ate:
1/2 banana and 1 c coffee w/Stevia (holy sweetener that’s sweet!) and skim milk (inspired by the lovely Sara)
Alex and I ran 4.5 miles at Pennypack Park, and then headed to the diner that is serendipitously located just a block away. I got eggs overeasy with home fries (plus onions for 35¢ extra, clearly – gotta get that quercetin), whole wheat toast, and sausage (with syrup for dipping, natch). Also 2 c coffee w/”compare to Splenda” (yikes) and half & half.
Sliced green & red pepper and homemade pita chips with roasted garlic hummus. I swear I took a picture, but it somehow did not save on my phone. Accompanied by hot chocolate, because it was just that kind of a day.
Apple, banana, and like half a serving of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked fro-yo. This stuff is amazing and is actually lower in calories and sugar than their new Greek yogurt & fruit combos (although probably higher in scary ingredients – the one part of the label I didn’t check!). This snack quickly proved to be disastrous gastro-intestinally. I can’t believe anybody came near me at rehearsal, never mind actually kissed me. Yikes.
Grabbed a tin of peanuts on my way out the door to rehearsal and ate at least three servings during and after. Did not ultimately help the GI distress.
I had a great rehearsal, but came home in a foul mood. If you’ve ever driven in Philly, you’ll understand why. I actually called the state troopers on like half of the people driving with me, and got to see a cop car screaming towards justice, which was sort of satisfying. I grumbled until puppy and boyfriend cuddles and the following trailer made me feel a little better, then got fed up with our lack of food and poured myself some OJ. Will almost definitely have some chocolate chips before bed. AND START MY NEW BOOK. Which may or may not be kinda lame, but hopefully it will give me some character insight. Two weeks till preview! (The “soft open” of a play, before opening, for you non-theatre types.)
Please enjoy this now:
I have had the pleasure of seeing the gentleman who plays Abraham Lincoln also play Andrew Jackson in the inaugural (get it?) production of the emo musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. I may also have played Rock Band with him, but I honestly can’t remember if he was there. I wonder if when he was an undergrad he ever thought “quirky takes on US Presidents” would be his niche? Not really a type you often hear.
What can turn your day upside down/right side up again?
Have you ever had to kiss anyone onstage/on camera/for a bet/for charity?
I have actually kissed more people onstage/on camera than I have in real life. Fact.
Any super random name dropping you’d like to share?
Reallllly can’t wait to hear these. Omg, please answer this one!
