tuesday

it's tuesday or, as my bf says, almost the weekend. it's a good attitude.

last night i did not go swimming as planned. i went running instead! i didn't go for 5 miles but i did 4.3 or something like that and it was awesome. i went later in the evening and it was brisk. i was a bit worried that i wouldn't be able to get to sleep right away but trust me, that wasn't a problem. i am going to swim today instead. i have less time anyway because of my rehearsal, so it makes sense.

while i was running, i noticed that many MANY people were walking along, probably home from work eating chips or cheetos out of a small bag. WTF! Is this really something that people do? maybe it's just me, but I prefer to eat in a pleasant environment where i can truly enjoy my food. sitting in front of the tv or computer for example, if i'm alone. i don't like standing and eating, or walking and eating, and eating on public transit is just gross for many reasons. eating in your car is ok, but it's kind of mindless. it just kind of struck me dumb. no matter how hungry i was, i would never NEVER buy a bag of chips from the convenient store and munch them down while i was walking home. wow. i'm talking at least ten people. enough for me to notice. a homeless woman also tried to squeegee me, but that's another story.

i saw these awesome sneakers at stylesense and i want them so bad but they aren't in my size. yesterday i trekked all over the GTA in my car to find them with no avail. i called first but store policy is not to do shoe checks over the phone. store policy is the armpits, if you ask me. they are coach shoes and normally i'm not into name brands (i just don't care about them) but they are so cute and comfortable, and not bulky in that teenage-skater-running-shoe way.

thanks to the people who have recently been coming out of the woodwork in my comments. what does that even mean anyway ... coming out of the woodwork? how does something come out of woodwork? and what woodwork? anyway, it's nice to know when people are reading. it makes me want to share more. except it makes me sad when i click on your profile and nothing is there, or your blog is private and i can't read it. i want to know you too. let me in dammit!

hmmm...interested in the squeegee story!!!

SOMETIMES I eat in my car on the way TO work (breakfast)...or if I am starving after work...but I can't say I pick up a snack and eat it walking (maybe an ice cream cone or something!!!)

I saw those coach shoes, they are SUPER cute!!! I have a scarf with the exact same print from Coach!!!

that's so funny!! I eat a yogurt in the car on the way to work every day, but that's about it as far as eating on the go! I prefer to eat with people or in front of a screen - def! Those shoes are ADORABLE! Love - and that's a crap policy fo sho. LOL at your deep thoughts on woodworking and private blogs. haha

I'm totally with you. Unless I'm STARVING I make sure I'm in a pleasant, comfortable environment so I can enjoy my meal. And even if I was starving I would not grab a snack if I was on my way home!!

Add me to those who like to eat comfortably at home...although I used to eat snacks walking around when I was a teenager. I was skinny then. Hmmm...

Cute shoes! I actually like those, and I'm not into name brand stuff either.

Bagelfuls are sooo good! In a bad sort of way. Although they're only 190 calories, so it could be worse. They're all chewy and creamy inside, and they smell good. Blueberry ones are my favorite--I get them at Co-op.

I think the saying "coming out of the woodwork" came from the bugs that would come out of the woodwork way back when...

I hate it when people go private too, I'm too shy to ask to be added as I feel like I'm invading their space - then I just feel sort of dejected. I need counseling.

I admit I can be a bit of a car eater but I do prefer eating in a more traditional atmosphere.

Sheesh, I didn't mean to be private or withhold information! ;) I actually have no blog nor profile. I guess I'm just a lurker? Funny.

I had the same snacking revelation as you did when I went to the movies last year. The movie was mid-afternoon and I started noticing that everyone was rushing to buy snacks then rushed in to the movie and ate the snacks. Did they skip lunch? Was this their early dinner? Can people not go two hours without eating something nowadays?
