Yesterday I was straightening my apartment a little and found some of the IKEA stuff that Lauren sent me. I think I never opened one of the items. It was a lunch bag. When I unfolded it, it was exactly the size of the bag I’ve been using.
My current lunch bag is made of paper. It has held up pretty well, but I can’t imagine it will last a whole nother school year. Now I can take my lunch in the new bag. Yay! Thanks again, Lauren!
I said ‘a whole nother’ facetiously.
After school yesterday, my co-worker Chloe asked if I wanted to come over for dinner. She, her fiance, his kids and his grandpa would all be there. A family dinner sounded delightful!
I asked what I could bring. She said the kids liked uncooked vegetables and fruits. Anything crunchy. I had just been going through old Bradaptation posts and saw THIS post about some apple dip. It would be perfect!
1 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
I cut up some apples and a crunchy, flavorless cantaloupe (I’m not so good at selecting cantaloupes).
I didn’t like it as much as I remember. I had a whole bowl full of it in 2009. Last night, I only had two large dollops. The leftovers are in my refrigerator. Maybe I’ll have more today.
Last night I was thinking that I hadn’t seen the TV show Doctor Who in a long time. I decided I should check the listings on cable, and maybe set my DVR.
When I typed “Doctor Who” into the search field, there were no results. Hmmm…
Then I went looking on the internet. Interestingly, I couldn’t find anything that simply said what was going on. Some of the stuff I read said it was just delayed. I’ll be curious to see. I’ve liked that show.
When I posted about playing the Goonies soundtrack, I forgot to mention that I was playing a CD. I’ve had it for a while, and it’s a little scratched. It was skipping. There are many commercial CD polishing products, but I wondered if there was something I could do about it with things I had in my classroom.
There was! The internet is full of instructions on how to use a banana to polish a skipping CD. I had brought a banana for lunch! Yay!
You are supposed to use both the edible part and the peel.
It worked! Sort of. It still skipped, but it skipped way less than before I polished it. Nice.
My co-worker Andrea gave me some Carnation Breakfast Essentials powder. She had gotten a big box of it thinking she would drink it, but she hasn’t, and now that she’s moving into a new house, she’s cleaning out stuff she isn’t using. I drink Carnation regularly, so I’ll take all the powder I can get.
It does taste a little different than my regular powder though. It reminds me of a protein powder Denis gave me a sample of that was made of bones. So when I drink this Carnation, I think of bones. The expiration date is January 2018. Surely three months doesn’t make a difference, does it?
I’ll just keep drinking it. This will help my grocery bill. Carnation is expensive.
