My meals during the summer are a bit of a mish-mash when the rentals aren’t home. However, my favorite is easily this: eggs scrambled with veggies, cheese, and sour cream, whole wheat toast from the amish with jam, and a diet coke with a crazy straw. It’s great for after those long runs, training for cross country season, and generally tastes like summer to me (don’t over do the diet coke or you’ll get fizzy burps, gross!). This is a nice light meal that happens to have protein, great for me since I’m a type 1 diabetic, and no need for dessert since the jam is plenty sweet.

Parting words: I have stumbled upon two moleskin posts.

One here: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2009/02/24/122-moleskine-notebooks/

For pretentious people (like me), moleskins are something to remember your thoughts by. They’re for that art project you will never start, that band you will never conceive, and that blog that you constantly update like a girl updates her facebook relationship status. I will admit, I’m a bandwagon hopper. I got mine this winter and only used it for a english class until a few weeks ago when I saw the blog by Glenn O’Brien. I have started to fill it’s pages with blog notes and ideas for the comic book that I’ve only complete four pages for. Commendable? No. Reccomendable? Yes. I will admit, they’re nothing better than a regular notebook but really folks, a moleskin does have that authentic appeal to it and excellent binding. However, if you’re trying to send a message to other people by carrying one, stop. Carrying a moleskin says nothing about you besides that you read blogs and are a bit of an artsy hipster snob. I guess that means me too, huh. So what have we learned? Carrying a moleskin if you actually write down thoughts in it, because then it doesn’t matter what it says about you. It just matters that it gets the job done.


  1. Hello. Was checking out new blogs and came across yours and I think its really cool. Hey come check out mine if you'd like.

  2. Haha, love the part on moleskines. I got one a while back and sort of use it as a journal. But I definitely don't carry it around trying to look cool :)
