Weird combination, right?
With all of this Charlie Sheen “winning” hubbub, I have had this song constantly stuck in my head:
I’ve been very much on-the-go for the past few days, so all of my food has been “fast,” though not technically fast food. Two meals, however, have been. Sort of. I love free things as much as I love healthier takes on things like fast food, so I was pretty psyched about that “buy one get one free” deal Chipotle had on facebook this week.
Though I tried to get both Lauren and Mark to come with me and get a free meal, both had plans and I had an evening appointment to get to, so I got not only a salad for my dinner last night, but also one for lunch today.
On both, I had a bed of lettuce, a small (though I think the server and I disagreed on the definition of “small” – they seemed pretty big to me!) scoop of rice, corn salsa, and a teensy bit (this time I got more specific) of cheese. On one, I got carnitas and pinto beans and on the other, I got chicken and black beans. The carnitas, for the record, were far superior.
It was all a lot of food, but it was kind of fun to do something different. Chipotle isn’t somewhere I’d normally go, without a coupon like this. I can’t remember the last time I was there! I think it has to have been before I started the blog back in June.
Anyway, yesterday’s lunch definitely counts as “fast” food too – I repeated my new favorite tofu spring rolls from Trader Joe’s.
Breakfast this morning was normal (a yogurt bowl – SURPRISE!), but it was certainly assembled in a hurry.
It certainly doesn’t hurt to have a roommate that makes things that I get to eat, like the banana bread I just got to slice and consume.
Into the mix went:
- 2% Pineapple Chobani (ahhh, it felt so good to have my CHO back)
- slice of Mark’s banana bread
- 1/3 banana, sliced
- small sprinkle of walnut pieces
In other news, I know I joked around about it being Justin Bieber’s birthday yesterday, but I was informed late yesterday afternoon that it was also, in fact, Ron Weasley’s birthday. This, of course, is far more important.
Did you know that, according to my friend Elisabeth and to Wikipedia (I “fact”-checked), Ron was “born” in 1980, which technically makes him 31?
That’s ridiculous! I don’t care about “facts.” I say false. Nope, Ron will forever be exactly the age I am. That’s how it works. This makes him 25… which is still, for the record, a little weird.
Ron is my favorite character from Harry Potter, though Fred and George come in as close seconds.
I love Ginny, too. Actually, I love all the Weasleys. Well, except Percy. Duh.
Who is/ are your favorite Harry Potter characters? And don’t try to tell me you didn’t read the series. If you haven’t, you need to. Pronto.
Oh, and don’t even TRY to claim that watching the movies is enough. It’s not.
