Alright it’s official, I am destined to become a baby theif! There is no reasoning with me, so don’t even contemplate trying. Seriously though, I dragged my mom to ‘Babies’ yesterday for the first showing (11:50!) of the first day it is out in the only theater in town that was showing it in honor of Mother’s day. I can honestly say there were no males in the theater..or at least willingly in attendance. It was so good though (how could it not be, it’s a recipe for success) I really recommend it, if you have a vagina you will appreciate it fa show!

Then we went out to lunch at the Daily Grind, which is my new favorite coffee house..well one of them. I think it’s funny that I finally feel at home and love it down in Nob Hill literally two weeks before I have to move back to the heights, that’s life though. The food was DELICIOUS, we split a turkey and green chile wrap.

So I sent my momma home with some of my belongings, packed up some MORE and took’em to my dads house for mother’s day part two. Kristen made delicious food for us: chicken salad, regular salad, avocado, and fruit with angel food cake for dessert. I don’t really like angel food cake, but the fruit was delicious so chowed down on that.

Jen and I finished up the evening with an impromptu viewing of a show at Winnings, we went to go get tea and ran into someone going to it. I love all the music shows I’ve been going to lately, music is such an enriching experience.



it has come to my attention that i am a caffeine fiend. what is a caffieine fiend you ask? its when you are addicted to the jittery drug available in coffee.

you know it’s an addiction when:

  • you wake up refreshed after a full night’s sleep, yet immediately head for the coffee pot
  • you drink upwards of three cups a day
  • you dedicate entire blog posts to discussing it
  • you own more than 40 coffee cups, but no plates or bowls
  • you incorporate coffee as an ingredient in other meals
  • you have saved more than ten pictures of coffee on your computer
  • that jittery, lightheaded feeling is comforting

I think i need to go on a coffee break–a green tea sebatical one might say. I try to do this periodically to cleanse my system from addiction, usually when it gets to the point where i have to drink the equivalent of  two coffee pots a day to feel the effects. It has come to that point, i’m afraid.

Jen is an enabler in my coffee addiction, mostly because she shares it with me. We had a bestfriend-date morning, all of which included our little energizing monster.

It innocently began with toast at winnings, my coffee cup refilled twice.

you’re probably thinking that’s not so bad, one might even say average. Then you would find out we walked to mitchel hall and purchased more coffee, which we then drank at the duck pond.

Even that second cup was manageable, the really troubling thing was when i made myself lunch and reheated left over coffee from yesterday to accompany my yogurt, banana, and oat concoction.

there are two steps in fixing  a problem:

1) addressing your vice. I ADMIT I HAVE AN ADDICTION

2) stop complaining about it and fix it.

looks like it’s green tea for me for awhile…right after i finish this cup ;)
