TWO Thursday Thoughts

How about Two Thursday thoughts. TWO.

1. I am ready for this campaign to be over. I try to listen to both candidates, but right now, I'm just mentally tired.

However, I did see a flow chart that caught my attention. This makes as about as much sense as anything else.  
That explains the foolishness going on more than anything else.

Which brings me to Thursday Thought #2... Which also happens to be the Quote of the Week, and eerily related to what's been going on:

2. Quote of the Week.

Hmmm... sit and let that marinate.

Have a great evening..

Monday Funnies

Happy Thursday

Happy Thursday to you!

And I have a post I meant to put up on Monday or Tuesday!

Shame on me. Oh well.

Anyway, I have been eating raw for the month. I am near the halfway point, and it seems to be going well enough.

My goal this weekend was to explore a couple of raw restaurants, one I am familiar with and a new one.

So I'd been itching for some raw nachos from Lov'n it Live, a raw spot down in East Point.

Got 'em!

And they were GONE. I finished those off... quickly.

For later on in the week, I bought some raw lasagna. I wanted to try this because my sister had been talking about it. Now my sister is FINICKY. And when my sister likes something, you better jump a fence, catch a train and steal a car to get to it...

So I did all that... and I got it!

Ooooooooh weeeeeee! It was good. And it lasted awhile. Good stuff.

My FAVORITE find this weekend was a restaurant a couple of miles from my house:

Tassili's Raw Reality... 

One word: FANTASTIC!!

I had some great raw corn, raw okra and raw "Stir-fry".

(There is that Callie. Her facial expression says... something. I don't think she was as enthused as me).

Not sure how they did that. But it was GREAT.

I had some raw cake also.

Blew me away. Not sure how they pulled that off, but I am not surprised. I have had raw apple pie and other raw desserts in the past.

Now, the most interesting meal I had from there was a kale wrap. I wanted it wrapped in a coconut wrap (not eating wheat right now), but they were out of those. So they wrapped it in SEAWEED. 

It looks a little scary. Seaweed. I've only had that as part of my sushi California rolls.

But it was filled with some goodness... kale, tomato, avocado and whatever else!


It was enough for 2 meals. And I mean I was FULL.

I'm so glad I found a raw spot so close to my house. I have to make sure I regulate myself though, where I don't spend all my spare change up in there. Let's just say I have been up in there 4 times since Saturday. Hmmm....

So it was a good exploration.

I am so happy I ventured out. I found some places where I can kick a little variety into my raw month.

Friday Freestyles



And it is PAYDAY!

I am suppose to get off at 6:30 pm. BUMP that. I blowing this joint a good 3 hours earlier. I am just waiting for some experiments to finish. Then bye!

Sometimes we get to leave an hour early the day before a holiday. People have been wondering if we will be getting off.

"No," has been my answer. "Because Columbus didn't discover America. He got lost!"

I  would like that hour, though. 

My boss isn't here. I found one of my coworkers, Dr. Ting, and asked if he was in charge of our group today...

"Dr. Ting, you in charge today?"

"No," he said "YOU in charge."

"Well I need to let somebody know that I'm blowing this joint!"

"Okay!" he hollered.

So... I'm not sure if he knew that I am leaving. Maybe I need to stop using slang.

(Uh, Nope).

I don't have much to say today.

But I did see a movie trailer that had me like... "Wait, what?"


I am STILL confused. And frightened.


I did see a movie that frightened me a couple of weeks ago. Don't Breathe.

That was a GREAT movie. But it scared me something awful. And I saw it in a Dolby theatre.

Nope, won't be seeing anything else in a Dolby theater. NOOOOO.

I want to see Birth of a Nation this weekend. Not sure I am in the mood for that. I would like to see Girl on the Train. We will see.

I have a lot of things I want to do this 3 day weekend. I need to make a list.

When I leave work, I'm going to the Farmers Market. I want some cilantro, watercress, swiss chard, dandelion leaves, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I am growing a bit tired of my kale, spinach and baby spring lettuce. Gotta go rogue for better greens.

Song of the Week. It is the 20th Anniversary of Outkast's ATLien CD. And it contains one of my favorite Outkast songs..."Elevators (Me and You).

I still bump Outkast's music. Yep!!

That is it for me. I am GHOST.

Have a good weekend. On purpose!
