Veggie Burger

2008 has been a pretty crappy year so far, starting with emotional carry-over from 2007 then going into the UH slaughter at the All-State Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, then heading right into heated debate about whether the UH Warriors football coach, June Jones, would be leaving the school.

This morning when we woke up and checked the Honolulu Advertiser they were reporting the worst, that sources had said that Coach Jones was leaving. As the morning progresses it just gets worse and worse. First, people maintain that it could still reverse and go in our favor, but then we get confirmation from his agent that he is indeed leaving and that he’s taking almost the entire mofakin’ coaching staff along with him.

I’m extremely disgusted with the University administration. I’m a UH drone to be sure, but even so you still hold out hope that the people making 10x as much as you have some, you know, BRAINS MAYBE?!? I’m leaving for a rally soon and I don’t know what it’s going to be about now since previously it was supposed to be a supportive rally to get the coach to stay. Now I just hope it’s a head hunting riot that will wake the University up to the pitiful state that it has left this school in and that in the end we get rid of that immensely incompetant and seemingly completely uncaring athletic director we have had to suffer with named Herman Fraizer.

Anyway, on to more cheerful, on-topic things: my bento today is a vegetarian bento because I had no idea what else to use. I have a veggie pattie from Costco cut into fourths along with a slice of whole wheat bread cut into fourths to make a nice sandwich. In the yellow container I have ketchup for the sammies.

On the side I have two silicone cups filled with edamame on one side and fresh raspberries on the other. I’d write more, but have to leave for the rally now. Maybe I can get on the news!! lol

Today I’m breaking in a new box, my new Monokuro Boo box! This was one I bought a couple weeks ago but just haven’t gotten around to using. It’s a pretty small box and since I didn’t have too much food to put in it, it seemed like the time was right for its debut.

I used two slices of the tamagoyaki I made yesterday and made me some tamago sushi along with a roll of ume maki to use up the last of my leftover rice. To add color I put in some sliced avocado and carrot sticks.

I forgot to sharpen the image this morning before uploading so the photo is a lil bit fuzzy. I have peeled rambutan and cigar mango in the bottom layer but didn’t think it was exciting enough to photograph.

I do believe this is one of my very rare vegetarian bentos. I’ll probably end up eating some Smart Pop today to help fill the meat void. I have heard about the whole popcorn lung thing, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop eating popcorn altogether. What I have decided is that eating a bag 3-4 times a week probably isn’t a good idea anymore, so I’m limiting myself to one bag per week.

I’ve also got to somehow get my brain back onto the points system. I’ve been having difficulties ever since I dropped down past 130 because I guess part of me feels that this is the lightest I’ve been since 1997 so I’m really still way ahead of myself. I find myself still watching my portions but I no longer pay strict attention to how many points I’m eating. Still, I’ve been bouncing between 125 and 128 for the last month, so I suppose I haven’t been all THAT naughty with my eating habits.
