The food log

My little sister is doing some project for her college class. Apparently she tracked everything (EVERYTHING) she ate for 3 days and then they go over the record of it and figure out what your diet is like and what it lacks. I didn't gather exactly what you're supposed to do with this data afterwards (she was too busy talking to me about the many uses of sombreros)....but I'm sure it'll be interesting.

She asked me to partake of this for fun (even though the project is over). I decided I would.'s only been 6 hours and I've already decided that this is going to be depressing. I know I eat bad food and I know that I don't eat a balanced diet. This'll just prove that. However, if anyone would like to participate in this project with me, start tracking now.....send me your list in a text file and I'll get her to tell you exactly what you don't eat correctly).

Anyway, I'm not going to post everything for the next three days (that's way too much useless information for the internet, which is already full of it), but here is everything I've had so far today.


Breakfast to lunch

Two bowls of Frosted Flakes. They were Grrrrrrrrrrreat!
One small 8oz container of 2% milk for the cereal
2 8oz cups of lemon decaf tea.
2 bottles of Arrowhead water.
A small handful of Reeses Pieces from my M&M dispenser (two presses on the yellow M&M's foot worth)


Home Made Chicken pie in the cafeteria
Squash and Zuchinni vegetable mix
Apple Cobler for dessert.
20 oz of water (so far).

The morning after

Well, I made it through the tainted marshmallow experience and I am still alive. To celebrate, here are some pictures I took of the fireworks last night.

If I should die before I wake

So, tonight was the annual party at the old Lake Union house. We BBQ'd, we ate and drank and watched the fireworks from the deck. It was a great time as usual except for one small wrinkle. I'm pretty sure I'm going to die.

We were lighting fireworks off in the backyard (not what killed me) and in the front alley (also not what killed me) when Justin decided to bring out these little Tiki torches. Now.....I assumed these were to assist us in the lighting of the fireworks, but turns out they had another purpose.

They were the perfect instrument for roasting marshmallows. Since Elizabeth brought a bag full (to top her Jello shots) I decided to stick one on the end of a bottle rocket and roast it over the Tiki Torch. It tasted great, so I roasted another one and ate that too. I told someone else that these were perfect for roasting marshmallows

Then someone told me that these were in fact Citronella Torches and they are meant to keep bugs away. I decided that I was now going to die.

Justin found the bottle of the stuff and it said: "Do not swallow", "Fatal if swallowed" and "Do not induce vomiting" on it. If you swallow some, you're just supposed to call a physician so they can tell you that you're going to die. I didn't call them, because who wants to spend their last few hours alive on hold or in a hospital.

So's been a great life, and if I'm still alive tomorrow, I will enjoy continuing it.

JoshEEE out, hopefully not literally.
