It's memorial day... Besides what the holiday actually stands for... It also means time and a half at work... That's good money. Being it's a holiday, I automatically get paid for eight hours whether I work or not. And if I do work, then I get paid time and a half for those hours as well. Let's figure this out... I work eight hours... I get paid for 20... Nice... Sadly, I was not scheduled today. I didn't even want the day off due to me lengthy two week vacation... That's the way it crumbles though.
Had a couple of glasses of Fetzer Eagle Peak Merlot last night while watching the special features disk of LOTR: Return of the King. So-so. Can't wait for the extended version to come out in November. The wine was so-so as well.
Raining again all day today. The grass and trees are literally neon green from all this precipitation. The sky is all grey and cloudy. Makes for a surreal, kind of enclosing atmosphere... Gloomy, yet vibrant... A conundrum to be sure. I miss the sun. Had a couple of the polyflora this morn. Laid around. Ate breakfast. An avocado w/herbamare, garlic, and dill. A handful of walnuts dressed w/a Tbsp. each of black-strap molasses, and cherry juice concentrate. A good sized piece of ginger, and some green onions dipped in organic/all natural peanut butter. Had a tin of sardines in spring water too.
A couple of glasses of water and green tea later, I had read far too much of a magazine called EGM... All about video games I will never play... I grew up with them so they still have a place in my heart... No time or money for those things these days. Did an hour of mediation as well. Lunch was two big scoops of the D'adamo Type A protein powder mixed with six ounces of pineapple juice and four oz. of water. I really liked it. Had a bunch of cooked lentils w/green onion, crushed garlic, dill, herbamare, Bragg's Liquid Aminos (delicious, all natural, soy sauce tasting stuff, really salty tasting), tarragon, and cilantro flakes. Ate a couple of my roommates rice chips w/the lentils. Good and crunchy. Had a couple of things I try not to eat though. Corn flour, canola oil, and sesame seeds. Good times. Just had to indulge a bit. I get "crunchy" cravings often that are hard to satisfy. I used to eat raw carrots, but I think I may have a hard time digesting them. Maybe it's all the starch... I dunno... I've really cut back on the carbs lately. Battling a possible Candida overgrowth in the stomach/intestines/colon. Just using a low carb/sugar diet in conjunction w/herbal supps and caprylic acid. Also eating LOTS of raw garlic. Anti fungal ya' know. Doesn't make me the most popular guy around though. Ha ha.
Feeling lethargic. Need some physical activity. Going to go work out after I digest all this. Here's hoping for the sun.
