I don’t really have a full fledged bento today as I ran out of time in the morning and decided to buy lunch at the little shop in my building at work. They usually always have spaghetti and pasta sounds like a good thing to eat today. I’ll probably microwave it though, as I like to have my food on the verge of singing the skin off my mouth.
I made 3 pork gyozas with furikake rice for a little “filler” bento today. I desperately need to go to the market as I have basically no fruits and just carrots and bell peppers for veggies. I need lettuce (I’d have put some under the gyoza), parsley, broccoli, berries, and maybe some shrimp.
Usually what I do for the lettuce is buy romaine lettuce. The inner, lighter colored leaves taste better, so I use those for salad. The more bitter outer leaves I keep to line my bentos. This works out really well as I don’t like to eat them, but I don’t waste them either! They make great liners for bento boxes and add so much flair to a lunch. 🙂
The Mog House went well yesterday, especially since it was Superbowl Sunday! I have to admit, I was really disappointed in the commercials. Other than the E-Trade baby ones, I didn’t really like any of the others. Some made me laugh, but they were only marginally funny imo. I didn’t really care who won since I don’t follow pro football anymore, but I’m sure once Colt is drafted, I’ll have more interest then. 😀

Yesterday the office peeps forgot to do our exercises, so in a shocking turn of events, I did them at home on my own. Monday I participated twice, so I did a total of 120 squats and maybe 30 push-ups, cause I’m such a weeny when it comes to arm stuff. Yesterday I did 75 squats, 60 lunges, and 40 push-ups by myself at home. And I’m not sore! Yay!
After my bad eating yesterday I’m back up to 128, but since there are no more lunch meetings this week, hopefully I can get back on track. I had taken some of my MIL’s corn chowder to eat, but I forgot to bring it in today. 😦 It’s so cold here lately, which is really nice because when its hot on Oahu, sleeping is a pretty miserable experience. By the way, by cold I am talking about “Hawaii cold”. This equals about 70 degrees or so. Yes, yes, laugh it up mainland people. I’m the one really laughing. Bwahaha!
Today I have one hamburger patty cut in half. There was empty space around it so I added some sliced up mini bell peppers for color and filler. On the other side I have a small star shaped onigiri with some chazuke sprinkles on it. I tucked in some leftover edamame that I’d defrosted the other day and then on top before I closed the box, I added a small yellow bear container full of ketchup.
It’s been about a week and a half since I pierced my ears and my right lobe is a little swollen. I keep disinfecting it and am trying to sleep on the other side of my head, but it’s still puffy and it’s getting difficult to grab the stud to twist it now. Anyone have advice on how to get it to stop swelling? I clean it 3 times a day as I’m supposed to, but it’s been like this for several days now. At least it doesn’t hurt though!
I am returning to my FFXI radio show this Sunday. Although we had moved the show at the beginning of the year to Sundays, we never did get around to doing a Sunday show. After I announced it, I realized that this weekend is Superbowl Sunday, but we are going to do a show anyway. It’ll be a little sad, since we will be short one host as our friend ImperialNinja has left us, but we’ll try to make do without him as best we can. If you play FFXI and are interested, tune in on Sunday from 2 PM to 5 PM Pacific time by going to http://www.onlinegamingradio.com. It’s been a really rough year and hopefully this radio show can bring some light back into 2008.
