truth be told

helloooo there, my friends.

i’m thinking of heading to bed early tonight. i know, who starts getting ready for bed at 9:00 on a friday night? me when i’m this tired! but in defense of my old-lady-ness, an enormous span of time tends to pass between when i say i’m going to get ready for bed, and when i actually get into bed. so i probably won’t be all cuddled up for at least an hour. but before i leave my laptop for make-up remover and dental floss, i’m going to write a quickie post.

i was going to watch that movie “the boy in the striped pajamas” last night, but ended up not. then today, my mom and i had a plan to see “my sister’s keeper” only to find out that it’s not playing anywhere near us anymore. what’s the deal with that? didn’t it just come out? point is, i guess a dose of motion picture sadness wasn’t in store for me. but a dose of comedy was most definitely had this afternoon! my mom and i decided to see “the ugly truth” since our former plan wasn’t doable. i’m picky when it comes to romantic comedies. i love them, but hate when they get too stupid. i recommend this one, though! a little bit of raunchiness, lots of laughs, witty lines, sexiness…mmmmhmmm. anyway, let’s move onto some eats now.

> halved grape tomatoes, a flourless 7 sprouted grains english muffin drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper, balsamic vinegar for dipping
> grated carrot and zucchini tossed in lemon juice and a drizzle of agave, surrounding a scoop of homemade guacamole adapted from nomi shannon’s “guacamole for one” recipe

> an onion, japanese eggplant, and mushroom stir-fry flavored with curry and ginger
> 1/2 of a humungous sweet potato sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper

this post wasn’t as quick as i planned it to be. who am i kidding when i say i’m going to write a quickie post? i always find a way to drag things on (e.g. by giving you a movie review!) but bed is sounding awfully wonderful right now, so i think i’m going to clean myself up, get some groats soaking, and do some reading from “the raw gourmet” and/or watch a little t.v from under the covers. on some nights my life seems like one big party, doesn’t it?! nighty night!

    haha well, don’t feel bad. I, uh, actually tend to go to bed between 9 and 10 almost EVERY night…

    How did you cook your eggplant? Just in the stirfry pan? I’ve had bad luck with cooking eggplants thoroughly enough in the past 😦

    Don’t feel so old! Between working at a camp and basketball, I have been going to bed around then. It’s so weird bc I used to be such a late nighter. Now I’m the first to bed 😛

    Yeah, between 9 and 10 p.m. is me as well. If I stay up ’till one with friends I’m usually pretty gone the next day. I really want some avocado for some guac action but the last few times I’ve gone to acquire them they’ve looked funky ): I’m craving it.

    Don’t even worry! 9pm is my bedtime on days when I have to work in the morning, 10:30 is the latest I usually stay up.
