Ok, so this is actually the 101st post… I didn’t notice until today that I’d passed the monumental post.
100 posts ago, I started this little blog. Today, I will continue it.
First I’d like to review a movie.
I almost called this post Sex and the Sucky but my better judgement came a knockin’ and I quickly realized that such a title could be taken the wrong way.
Sex and the City 2 sucked. That’s how Sex and the Sucky should be taken.
I was really excited to see this movie. Although I’ve never been into the series, I did like the last movie.
I found round 2 to be offensive, culturally insensitive, and corny to the point that I was forced to cringe. If you must see this awful movie, please do not waste your money to see it in the theater. Wait for it to come out on DVD and rent it for $1.
On to the beginning of my day!
Breakfast today was half a cantaloupe filled with overnight oats and topped with strawberries and raspberries. This was inspired by my favorite Iowan.
Cantaloupe Overnight Oats
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 heaping tsp. vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
- 1/2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cantaloupe
- fruit to top
- Mix the oats, yogurt, protein powder, banana, chia seeds and salt in a bowl.
- Scoop out the seeds of the cantaloupe and fill the oat mixture into the hollow of the melon.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Top with fruit and enjoy in the morning!
I had the same thing yesterday but with raspberries as well.
This morning I sang at assembly with the school teachers’ band. The music teacher is retiring this year after 25 years. He has always dreamed of having a teachers’ band but this is the first group that’s come together. It was a lot of fun singing for the whole school. All day I felt like a rock star as children came up to touch my hand and tell me “Ms. I saw you singing today. You have a pretty voice.” Kids were walking past and smiling like crazy all day. I’m glad they enjoyed it so much.
The band consists of 1 flute, 2 clarinets, 1 guitar, 1 piano, 1 drum set, and 2 voices.
Before long, it was lunch time.
Lunch was a veggie-loaded layered sandwich, garden-fresh radishes, and a kiwi
- pumpkin seed whole grain bread
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 small carrot, shredded
- slice of goat cheese
Yesterday I plucked up the first harvest from the balcony garden- radishes! Here are a few photos.
Yum! I love spicy radishes! They always remind me of eating at Grandma’s.
Dinner today was an unphotographed baked potato with a side salad and a glass of wine, eaten out with the girls before the movie.
Now that we’ve come back to the movie, let me tell you a funny story.
The guy who plays Steve is from my University town. When the first movie came out, his mom rented the city trolley, decorated it with Sex and the City stuff, hired a bartender to make cosmopolitans, then drove her friends around town drinking and eating before going to the movie. When I saw the movie, I realized that he had some sex scenes. I just imagined his mom and her friends in the audience watching that. Ok, not really a funny story, but funny to imagine that moment for those intoxicated women.
Tomorrow I have the day off… but will spend it writing school reports all day. Wish me luck and lots of concentration.
