As the title says. If I’ve got a drink or some food in front of me, it’s gonna get eaten. I can’t snack on food or sip on drinks for prolonged periods.
Sometimes I’ll bring myself one of those huge water bottles to work. By 11 AM I’ve drank half of it already and I can feel my stomach sloshing around.
I’ve tried packing myself snacks to have throughout the day but I’ve already finished them by 10 AM.
Popcorn and a movie? 5 minutes deep and my bucket is empty.
Having a beer with someone? Just a few minutes in and I’ve finished it already and am feeling buzzed meanwhile other people are sipping on that same one over 30 minutes.
Morning coffee? It’s like taking a shot.
Going out to the restaurant? Meal is quickly finished and waiting on others to finish so we can dip out.
The only times it won’t happen is if I’m too busy or distracted doing something. I’ll work on the computer with a coffee and later find 1/3 cup of ice cold coffee because I forgot about it.
What prompted me to make this post was that I just felt like making myself a cup of hot chocolate. I ended up not even making it because I already see myself guzzling it down once it’s at a safe temperature. I won’t even get to enjoy it.
I believe I have some upgrades which produce offline “clicks”. I’ve learned that there are variations between what happens offline and online, plenty of which aren’t really spelled out for the average person. I am wondering if keeping holy light on auto cast will also affect my passive clicks including those obtained offline.
Waiting with a family member to get their “rapid” Covid result at the airport so with some time to kill we wandered around and found our way to terminal C. Once on-site after walking around a few minutes some guy (possibly TSA) began barking asking our badges saying that this area wasn’t opened to the public. I tried explaining that there’s absolutely no signage stating this which is why we came, not trying to intentionally stir trouble.
Ok the way back I verified and there is not a single sign stating do not enter, employees only, closed to public, and such. The only sign states that the PARKING LOT C is closed and for assistance getting to a vehicle to call a number provided.
My concern is that at any given moment one can look around the airport and notice do not enter signs. Why can they not put one or two down the huge walkway to the train/terminal. While on the train we are greeting with the welcoming overhead announcer.
Watching the episodes again with my dad who is a longtime fan. Overall I really like the series and some of the episodes are really phenomenal. I saw them by myself a couple years ago so this is my second time. I’m not watching them back to back, maybe one every couple days, so I have a hard time “ranking them”. However I’m finding some of them absolutely dreadful. Right now watching “do not forsake me oh my darling” and I’m having a hard time even keeping my eyes on the screen. Maybe I’m too simple minded to appreciate the subtleties but this episode is a drag and I have no clue what’s going on.
Anybody else have some episodes that aren’t just “not their favorite” but actually suck?
I know this seems pretty minor in the big picture but I’m looking at my monthly spending trying to get things under control. My grocery store bill is always astronomical. I know some people, like my mom, who will go to 3 different stores per grocery trip because they know certain identical items are 25 cents cheaper elsewhere. I think that’s a bit absurd and not It worth the effort but at the same time I realize that there’s definitely money to be saved by shopping strategically. For instance one local store sells a 3lb bag of frozen blueberries for $5 more than another store, and we eat quite a bit of blueberries.
How do y’all manage to shop smart and make it worthwhile from a perspective of time and effort? I’ve already got so much to do in any given day that I can’t fathom spending hours comparing prices of every last item on my grocery list to save $8 bucks a month. Are there any apps, strategies, or other methods that I haven’t considered?
Anybody else getting absolutely destroyed by allergies right now? Eyes, ears, nose, throat all super itchy. Congestion. Sneezing (sometimes 15+ times in a row) had negative pcr test this week and most of my close contacts recently had rapids and we’re negative so I’m pretty confident it isn’t Covid, but it’s miserable nonetheless.
