That’s not a creative name at all. Whoops.
I’ve been eating Ezekial bread lately. No, it’s not paleo. No, I don’t care. Because I love that stuff and it doesn’t make me feel shitty. It’s gluten free and it’s delicious. Especially with grass-fed butter slathered on it. Sometimes I don’t want to eat vegetables for carbs, okay. The cinnamon raisin kind is my favorite. Wee-ewww wee-ewww. I hear the paleo police coming.
My mom asked me how to write a smiley face in a text this morning. Not even an emoji. Just a smiley face like this Oh Sue. God bless her little heart.
Classes start back up again next week. I am not looking forward to that. But I am taking a class where our lab includes cooking and our final project involves making an unhealthy recipe more healthy. HELLO WAS THAT CLASS MADE FOR ME OR WHAT. Watch me get an F or something. That would be just my luck.
So a girl at my work yesterday told me to download the Tinder app. Have you guys heard of this? It’s actually freaking hilarious. It’s an app that finds people in your area for you to date. You literally scroll through pictures of guys and decide if you want to date them based solely on their photos and your similar interests and mutual friends on Facebook. Then if you both pick each other it tells you you “have a match.” I can’t decide what I find more disturbing about it, the amount of people I actually know that are on it, or the amount of male selfies I see. If you’re a dude and your profile picture on Facebook is a selfie, that’s gonna be a no. Immediate swipe to the left (left means no, right means yes). Yesterday when I was first getting the hang of it, I was going too fast and thought you could swipe back to look at the previous person again, but no. You cannot. What I actually did was swipe the next rando dude to the right, indicating that I wanted to be matched up with him. And literally 10 seconds later it told me I “had a match.” I immediately freaked the eff out and didn’t know what to do so I blocked him. It seemed like the logical thing to do at the time. I don’t think I’m cut out for this. I think I’ll stick to baking.
Hope y’all like lemon bars.
