I ran two miles this morning with my running group and then I stupidly agreed to meet a friend at the health-food grocery store. There was a clever move.
Did every date nut bar and tub of bulk granola look absolutely delicious? Or what?
I ended up buying yogurt with cream on top, because I enjoy cardiac arrest as much as the next person, and also a big bag of nutritional yeast. I know, right? Party on, June.
Nutritional yeast is absolutely delicious on popcorn. Marvin worked on a movie in San Francisco for a few weeks, and he came home raving about how the movie theaters put nutritional yeast on their popcorn. I had the same reaction you are having, which is, "Ew," but trust me, it's good. You just can't find nutritional yeast anywhere, is the thing.
Moving beyond my yeast affection, two faithful readers have sent in photos of their Bye Bye, Pie mugs from June's fabulous designer collection of Bye Bye, Pie paraphernalia. Oh, and before I forget, my Aunt Mary said she ordered the dark t shirt with the new design? And the image came out really light. So I recommend not getting dark Ts with the new banner. I will remove them from the store. That's what they call your page on CafePress. Your store. Bugs me. I'm Mr. Hooper, over here, sweeping my stoop. What you want, Big Bird?
Here is Faithful Reader Laura's cute dog, Trixie, and her new mug. Trixie loves her some Red Zinger in a Bye Bye, Pie cup. Okay, totally making that up…
Oh! Also too? If anyone else is gonna send me their photo with their Bye Bye, Pie purchases, will you include the address to your blog in the email? That way I don't have to try to find you in the comments to see if you even HAVE a link. Merci.
Faithful Reader DB in MD also sent in her mug shot (bah!) next to her old mug. "Old." Not really doing that mug justice…
It was really convenient when DB was commuting on the Ark, tho.
My friend and former coworker, Hammy, is married to a guy who made her stop using those plastic commuter mugs, by the way. Apparently that particular type of plastic is really bad for you or something. Plus, in the case of DB in MD's mug, it's all scratched up from when T-Rexes drank from it first, which constantly used to cut her mouth.
Okay, am over the "DB's mug was old" jokes.
She got this when it was Free Mug Night at the chariot races.
Okay. Done. Really.
I guess that's all I have to tell you, anyway. The weekend yawns before me with nary a plan. I squeezed in all my activities before noon Saturday. I do have a copy of The Help, now, though, which is our book club selection this month. Click on Mince Words with June if you'd like the scuttlebutt. Although I mostly blame my scuttlebutt on my love of the McDonald's fries.
Speaking of fries, have you seen that commercial for Ore-Ida? It's basically saying there's a recession and we're cutting back in so many ways, but dammit if I don't stick to my Ore-Ida fries no matter what. Because when we're poor, nothing's better for my family than frozen fried processed food.
Oh, dear. Am seriously hoping Ore-Ida isn't one of my BlogHer sponsors. Things get so complicated when you sell out.
P.S. I almost forgot. Faithful Reader Lee wanted me to tell all of you her Haitian kids are on their way! She adopted two Haitian children before the earthquake and they are fine and they are coming home.
