But I Feel Much Better Now... I Think?

Today I:
  • had a bagel with cream cheese and nutritional yeast for breakfast with a cup of white tea
  • am having avocado and cucumber sushi, a small salad (sans dressing), a banana, and a bag of Kettle Chips for lunch
  • don't have a headache

The caffeine withdrawal headache is gone, but it has been replaced a by erratic mood swings. It's like PMS x4. Not fun. Even chocolate doesn't help, and believe me, I've tried. I think that phase may have passed, though.

Now for the next phase, whatever that is. Ergh.

Thrift Scores

I did a little thrifting this weekend.

Above: (clockwise from top left) Purple cotton 3/4 sleeve embroidered top, brown corduroy A-line skirt, black cotton long sleeve V-neck shirt (nice enough for work), burgundy cotton tank top, light gray men's socks with double decker bus pattern (was in packaging, the boyfriend/ partner/ whatnot loves them), small black opaque tights (in packaging).
Below: (clockwise from top left) Black cotton 1/2 sleeve dress shirt, tweedy straight skirt, cotton/angora vaguely 1920's sleeveless top, olive green cotton tank top.

I think I spent about US $22. I am esp. happy with the tights and the socks. I saved US $11 on those tights! And I certainly need them: skirt weather is finally here.

Yesterday, I:

  • had bagel with cream cheese, broccoli sprouts and nutritional yeast for breakfast with tea
  • had what might be called nachos, but which was really corn chips baked with kalamata olives, cheese, and... um... baked beans?
  • drank a lot of mineral water
  • ate a chocolate bar
  • drank a moderate amount of jasmine green tea
  • watched You've Got Mail and The Truth About Cats and Dogs
  • played with a vintage doll
  • swore at my "sewing machine"
  • knit
  • tinked
  • raged at the world
  • was morbidly depressed
  • ate chocolate gelato
  • was okay
  • still wanted coffee. Or maybe a beer.

That embroidered top is cute.

Yay that the headache is gone! The erratic mood swings might even out, or they might not. My neurologist told me that coffee is a OTC medication for low grade depression caused by uneven or low manufacturing of some chemicals naturally produced. Which meant, yay! I could keep drinking coffee.

Nutritional yeast? WTH is nutritional yeast?

Sorry about the mood swings. Where did you get the gelatto? Did you try the gelataria near the Conah Store? It certainly was perfect weather for it.

Ah, thanks for the Wikpedia ref!I've used yeast as a topping for popcorn for ages. Good stuff.

Nice work @ the thrift store! Looks like you hit the mother-load.

Hey, sorry to be the jewish mother/wet blanket, but 1) chocolate has caffeine, which is just gonna mess you up further and 2) didn't you make a pledge swearing off buying new clothes? Or does thrifting fit in with that gig? If so, yay! Sounds like fun. Good score! I like the purple top (of course). :)
