Is it bad that I keep almost washing off my apples with 409 instead of Veggie Wash?

My asbsentmindedness

I'm frequently absentminded. Almost every single day I get to my car, or outside of my apartment building and remember something I've forgotten. Usually it happens before I've gotten too far from home. Yesterday, though, was a different story.

I woke up, prepared some cereal and realized we were extremely low on milk. I enjoyed my cereal, and then got ready to go workout. Oftentimes I read my homework while elliptical-ing. I got my notebook ready, put it next to my keys, my towel, and my water-bottle. Then I changed into my workout clothes. After changing, I came back into the living room, moved my notebook so I could grab my keys, towel and water-bottle. Then I left. The first sign that this was going to be an absentminded day was when I turned out of my parking lot. Instead of going towards the gym, I went the other way. And then I turned again, even more in the opposite direction. About a half mile later I realized that I was not at all going the right way. That's also when I realized I'd forgotten my notebook. So, I turned around, went home, grabbed my notebook, and started towards the gym (again). This time I went the right way. So I get to the gym, start working out, and 3 minutes into my workout the fire alarm goes off. Instead of hanging around to see how long it would take for us to get back in, I decided to go for a run. There is a trail kind of close to the rec center, so I drove my car to that, parked and went running.

While running I thought about things I needed to do, homework, groceries etc. I remembered that we needed milk, so I decided to go to Target after my run. I got to Target, was proud of myself for remembering the reusable bag I'd bought for grocery trips, and started wandering Target remembering other things I needed to get. Bread, turkey, broccoli, salad, bubble wrap etc. Then I checked out. About 45 seconds before I arrived home, I realized that I'd forgotten to get milk: the only reason I'd gone to Target in the first place.

Checking the weather

Is it bad that, after having already put my laptop away, I pulled it back out of my bag, opened it up, waited for firefox to load, went to, and found out what it was like outside when I could have (probably much quicker) just opened the balcony door and stepped outside?


I had some Chipotle a few days ago and thought it tasted funny. A little sweeter than normal. My theory was that the boric acid that Stacie and her mom put all over our apartment (we have creepy cockroaches) was somehow screwing with my taste buds to make the Chipotle taste weird. I told Stacie about it and that was it. Then today, I get home from studying and Stacie says to me that she had Chipotle for dinner and she, too, thought it tasted weird. She believes they put nutmeg in the beans. I'm going to start doing research. If anyone knows what the change in taste might be, let me know.

Starting the day off on the wrong foot.

I came out into the living room this morning to tell Stacie about my night, not noticing the outdoors. As I'm in the middle of the story, I stop because I finally look outside. And see that it is SNOWING. SCREW THIS.

Oh yeah, and last night at work I kept getting a foot cramp in front of my tables. This dropped me to the ground, grabbing my foot, in front of my tables. Grabbing foot + serving food = horrible customer service. Needless to say, I ended up going home early. I just kept picturing myself falling down the stairs, with a try full of hot plates, due to a foot cramp. Let's hope tonight is better.
