Twitter, Tweets, and a Kale Fail #@##@
I'm like a grandma who's never used a cell phone before, when it comes to Twitter. I'm all thumbs. I don't get it. (Insert deeply furrowed brow). Why is so much punctuation used?? ?!! @@ ## @ ^ &@@ ## WTH?!?!? But, I know I want to use it for my blog... so, I've taken the plunge. I've created a handle. Ha! Just a week ago I didn't even know what that meant. No, not a love handle (I'm trying to get rid of those!!)... a Twitter handle: @nsSweetlife. I would love for you to follow me there and get more involved in the conversation. I just tweeted my first tweet! (I'm not sure that's even how you say that!) I will add a Twitter button to the top of the site this weekend, so it will be even easier to Follow.
I'm a bit bummed today because I'm sick. How do I know this?
- I had zero appetite last night, which NEVER, I repeat NEVER happens. I ate 5 strawberries and that was it.
- My lymph nodes have tripled in size and are about to pop out of my neck.
- I woke up basically every hour in the night trying to get comfortable, to no avail, despite the ramp of pillows I was "resting" upon.
I was planning on making the Kale Blueberry Shake after dinner yesterday; but since there was no dinner, there was no post-dinner shake. I decided to make it this morning, and I can tell you... it officially tasted awful. Epic Kale Fail! It wasn't so much the flavor.. more the texture/consistency. It was like swallowing chunks of seaweed that had been in a hurricane with dirt and berries. Each sip was harder to swallow than the first, until I finally decided this isn't worth suffering through and just threw the entire batch away.
Since we're in grandma mode... As my great-grandpa would say to my grandma on occasion, "You don't need to keep that recipe!" :) I guess brutal honesty runs in the family! So Plan B took effect: I took 3 of the Mole Polenta pieces out of the freezer and heated them up. They were surprisingly good as leftovers!
