Technical Difficulties of My Own.

(Title semi-stolen from Janiece.)

Well, technically, my difficulties are not technical. It's all in my head...or not, as the case may be.

What's my difficulty? I can't think of a damned thing to tell you, point you toward or vent about. I got nothin'.

Really. No. Thing.

Nope. Still don't have a thing.

I declare this an open thread where you can:
- tell me what to blog about.
- chastise me for hitting "publish post" again...before writing anything.
- tell me to shut up and think of stuff myself.
- throw things at me.

Or anything else you'd care to say.

I don't have anything to say, either.

So I thought I'd tell you that.

Today I ingested:

Waffles with fresh strawberries
Fresh squeezed orange juice

Chips & Salsa
Tortilla soup
Sweetened Iced Tea

Dutch chocolate ice cream

I also have walked 13700 steps so far today, which is about 6 1/2 miles.

Not sure what's for dinner (it's part of Michael's conference) but if worse comes to worse I have three different types of fudge (peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, and chocolate pecan.)

How's that?

I'm trying to decide if I want to blog about my vacation or not.

Nathan said...

At least you've got something to blog about today, Michelle. I'm boring the crap out of myself.

And thanks Vince. Good to know.

Describe in detail the construction of the perfect Bloody Mary. Seriously, dude, play to your strengths, just sayin' :)

Nathan said...

Well, first of all, freepouring is essential. Measuring is teh evil.

Vodka over Ice. add pepper (as much as you want). add tabasco (one to three drops per glass is enough). add horseradish sauce (that newish squeezable stuff is a Godsend). Add Worcestershire sauce (I like a lot).

Stir the hell out of it.

Add V8 Juice.

Stir the hell out of it.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Dinner (which was free):
Salad with ranch dressing
Potato salad (yummy yummy)
Grilled corn on the cob
Handmade barbecue potato chips
(None of the main entrees were appealing to me)

A single scoop of triple chocolate ice cream.

And I'm 15868 steps for the day. That's 7 1/2 miles. So I figure going to get that ice cream was totally justified.

I don't have anything to say either.

And to make things worse, this is effectively a "me too" post on Vince's.

I nothing to add Nathan, no great ideas....My brain is mush after spending the day doing all the readings for tomorrow's classes.

But i did make some kick-ass Apple Dumplings for dessert tonight. I have to use up all the damn apples we got apple picking on the weekend.

kimby said...

And Michelle?
TWO meals with ice cream?
Where are you?

Tania said...

Been doing logistics for a public lecture series. Shawn has helped me with some questions on webcasting. I've been AFK all day, and will be tomorrow.

Jim, don't forget to vote tomorrow!

YEs two meals, plus I had ice cream the day before, and I full expect to get ice cream at least once--if not twice today.

I've already got my 10k steps for the day too!

Random Michelle K said...


Orange juice
Cheese Blintzes with strawberry sauce
Scrambled eggs

Lunch (free)
Tomato bisque soup
Salad greens with ranch dressing
Parmesan polenta
Bread pudding with fresh whipped cream and raspberry sauce (this was really really good)

Now I'm sitting in the back of the conference room while everyone chats, borrowing electricity. Woot!
