Today I feel like I'm drowning, even though I can breath.
It is that I am lacking sleep. <- evidence that my brain is running on fumes of energy. I didn't plan that sentence, it just came out that way.
And speaking of fumes... the gas leak in my car didn't help much today. I went to SLC to have ... what's the word for a meal in between lunch & dinner? You know, like Brunch ... ?
Anyway, I met with a friend for whatever you want to call it where you sit down and eat at 3:00PM. Driving back, I was fighting falling asleep. The gasoline fumes kept wafting up... and I was like, "I am going to stop at the side of the road and just sleep for forever... a forever nap sounds really good right now."
Question: Why do heavy doses of food dye always come out green, no matter what color it originally was?
This is a sincere question; I really would like to know.
I remember, as a kid, freaking out that I had just pooped green. My mom comforted me and told me that it was just the massive amounts of Air Heads I had consumed -- oh man, I loved my sugar.
Then I was disappointed.
The Air Heads were blue (blue raspberry or blue cotton candy artificial flavors.. heaven); my poo was green. It would have been 75% cooler were it blue.
Why, I don't know, really... maybe it's because blue is much less of a natural color to come out of your body. I mean, boogers and mucus can be green. Green stuff coming out of the body isn't new.
Gummies sound really good right now. Peach. I could go for some artificial peach flavoring. I may dare rank such higher than blue raspberry or blue cotton candy.
I can't seem to hold onto money. I have it, so it must be spent.
Although, I did have buyers remorse the other day. I got a hand-me-down Blackberry Pearl from my sister (she upgraded). It needed a new battery, so I went and bought one at the T-Mobile store for $70. It just didn't feel right, so I looked online.
I took the $70 battery back and got me the $7 battery -- thinking that if the $7 battery doesn't work, I'll just go back and get the more expensive one.
Well, the $7 battery has been fabulous. I also got a memory card for $3.00. You know how much I spent on a memory card for my previous phone? ~$50.
I did have to get a new trackwheel... and that was a whopping $9. So, I'm thinking, a Blackberry Pearl for less than $20... not a bad deal.
Sure, it's a hand-me-down and has its scratches, bumps, and bruises... but I ain't proud. I will take what I can get these days.
Maybe I should go on a McDonald's run or something. Maybe I'll try the one in Lake Point, go for a little bit of a drive.
That would mean I'd have to put my contacts back in...
I wish there were better 24hour places. Like The Sconecutter. I could go for a navajo taco from there right now.
... do I drive half an hour for a navajo taco?
Nope, I don't want it that much. But I should probably eat something.
I've been getting a little gaunt-faced what with being sick and all -- I finally went to the doctor and am on anti-biotics... I'm starting to feel much better and am feeling my appetite return.
Being sick is dangerous for me. I stop eating.
Why am I writing this post?! I should be eating and then going to bed.
How much do you want to bet that I'll go on for another few paragraphs?!
