June 21, 2011

Well, well, well, Happy First Day of Summer to you all.  Mother Nature opted to observe the holiday by putting an end to the rain and gloom of yesterday and giving us some cheery sunshine today. 

Now that it’s officially summer, let’s keep the sun a shinin’ okay?

It’s come to my attention today that I’ve been guilty of several things.  I thoughT I’d fess up and share.  Because if you can’t be honest in the blogosphere, where can you?

Yesterday I ventured to the store to pick up some groceries that included a few ingredients I needed to make Jess’s “Caesar Hummus.”  And then I proceeded to buy already-made hummus.

Yes, I’m guilty of buying hummus, even though I have the ingredients to make it on hand, because, well, I was hungry for hummus right then.


You can never have enough hummus though, right?


Don’t worry, I ended up making the Caesar hummus today and can I just say best hummus ever? 






Gah, so good.  But really, how could it not be when it involves capers?


I’m also guilty of buying canned pumpkin even though I know we’re well out of pumpkin season.  I had some stored in the freezer but someone decided to toss it when they cleaned out the freezer during the move.


You’ve been warned, Joey.  Don’t mess with my pumpkin ever again.

And seeing as it’s the First Day of Summer and all, I should probably confess that I’m guilty of listening to Atmosphere’s “Sunshine” multiple times a day. 


I can’t help it, it’s just such a feel good summer song.


And while we’re on the topic of Youtube videos, I’m totally guilty of watching this video at least three times today.  I blame Caitlin.

Please take three and a half minutes out of your day to watch is.  But only so you’ll understand when I say things like “Nothing can stop the honey badger when it’s hungry” in reference to myself. 

And nothing can stop the honey badger when she sees “Rockstar Spinach” for sale at the Farmers’ Market.  The leaves are the size of my hand. 

No really, they are.


And call me crazy, but I’m guilty of preferring regular old bagged and imported from God knows where spinach from the grocery, because this stuff was bitter and hard to eat.  And not just because I couldn’t even fit an entire leaf in my mouth but because it was way too crisp. 

It left a bad taste in my mouth.  Literally and figuratively. 

Luckily I had some Food Should Taste Good chips to wash it down with.  Joey and I are both guilty of buying a bag yesterday.  And both from Target, oddly enough. 


Living together has made us transform into the same person.  Except that I hate beer and South Park and don’t eat at Taco Bell.  And Joey refuses to eat breakfast.  Okay, we’re not the same at all, but I’m glad we’re in agreement on the fact that these chips are good.

We aren’t so in agreement about keeping the kitchen floor clean.  Which is why I’m guilty of leaving notes like this for him and our roommate, Claire.


And apparently I was in a cleaning mood because not only did I clean the kitchen floor, but I also vacuumed the living/dining room and folded laundry.

I’m guilty of owning the same exact running shirt in two colors.  I can’t help it, I love it. 

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!


And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to enjoy the rest of this sunny day.

What are you guilty of?  Come on now, fess up.

Or you can just quote the honey badger video to me and you’ll officially be my favorite person of the day.

    Oh I LOVE those chips, I’m definitely guilty of spending way too much money on buying every flavor of them…

      Oooh, have you tried the olive or sweet potato? I’ve been eyeing them.

    I”m guilty of using statements like “I get so upset/mad/frustrated when I take time out of my day to clean this entire house and then I find your stuff lying around like you don’t care.” in a really nice way to make the Husband feel bad. It works better than yelling “Why don’t you pick your $hit up off the floor? Gaaah!”

    Lol I’m guilty of the hummus thing too. I have a can of chickpeas that I’ve been meaning to make hummus out of for months, but every time I’m in the store, I just end up buying hummus anyways. I’m also guilty of double dipping from the almond butter jar 😯 Or flat out just sticking my fingers in there…

    • June 21, 2011 9:41 PM

      I consider all nut butter jars to be my personal property. What I do with them is my business and my business only 🙂

    Ahahah I leave dishes out, cupboards open, and leave the dirty dishes…alot 🙂

    I’m jealous. your caesar hummus looks so much creamier than my caesar hummus! you can send me a tub, if you’d like. because…you know…i’m just about all out and you bought hummus. i’m just trying to help you out, here…;) glad you liked it!
    i’m guilty of dropping crumbs on the floor :X In my defense, i do try to pick them all up. ..

      I added a lot of chickpea liquid! At least you made an effort to keep clean.

    Bahah I love your note. And I love those chips. The blue corn ones are phenom.
    I am guilty of going to bed at 8pm…..but honey badger don’t care. Honey badger don’t give a shit. 😀

    Today, after work, I bought premade spaghetti sauce and rice ice cream for 7 bucks (total) when I could of made banana soft serve and I had pesto at home.. I just felt lazy.
    I’m also watching old episodes of grey’s anatomy right now instead of packing.

      I went through a phase where I watched old episodes of Grey’s! That show used to be SO good. It’s definitely gone down hill.

    I’m guilty of scattering all my stuff around virtually any space I enter. It’s almost a talent. You give me a space, and no matter how large it seems, I will fill it with all my junk in a random and haphazard way. My mom never ceases to be amazed by what she calls my “room explosions.” They can happen within minutes. Counter surfaces and tables are not immune to explosion powers….just so everyone I live with doesn’t hate me, I try to control my sprawling impulses, but in spite of my best efforts, they take over from time-to-time without my realizing it.

      I have the same problem!! The entire two years we spent in our last apartment the kitchen table was COVERED in my stuff. I’m making a conscious effort to keep the table at the new place clean.
