Updates 2/6/12

Last night I watched the Super Bowl by myself in my living room. It was a great game and the first NFL game of this season that I watched in its entirety. I was cheering for the Patriots since I have some friends who live in New England. I had a big meal which consisted of a bag of the cracked pepper and sea salt variety of Dirty Chips, a can of Blue Sky Organic Soda (Root Beer Encore), and almost all of the roasted vegetable pizza from Amy's. The last slice is in the refrigerator and I'll probably eat it tomorrow. It was the second time I had that pizza and it's pretty good. It's hard to find frozen vegan pizza. I have yet to try my local vegan restaurant's pizza, but one of these days I'll do it.

Today is my day off from work. I was supposed to have a day off on Saturday but another franchised store near me was short-handed so my manager asked if I would be willing to work there on my day off. I'll be honest, I didn't want to work on my day off but the thought of working with this really cute guy who normally works there was a compelling motivation, so I enthusiastically agreed.

Both of my parents have been sick for the last few days. I hate being around sick people. I feel fine and I hope they get better soon.

I wish I could afford to buy some much-needed kitchen appliances so that I could cook for myself more often. My parents don't have a lot of equipment and the stuff that they do have is usually being used or is inadequate for what I want to do. And I would like to get a good pressure cooker and a rice cooker so that I can buy beans and rice in bulk, thus saving me lots of money in the long run.

Before I go, I wanted to mention that I checked-out three DVDs at the library this afternoon. Two are documentaries: "FOOD, INC." and "Saint of 9/11." The last DVD is a feature film titled "The Boys Are Back." It stars Clive Owen and it's about fatherhood. I've seen "FOOD, INC." before but I can't remember much about it and I'm sure it will have more meaning to me now, compared to back then.

Until next time...
