I. Want. To. Hibernate.
I have this big, fuzzy blanket that strongly suggests anything on the To Do List can wait until spring. My friend, who lives near Sault St. Marie, Michigan, said to me that I can’t hide from winter. I told him that there is a fine line between hibernating and hiding. He replied that I should be careful which side of the line I was on. I laughed.
But you know what? He was right. I would have been totally happy to snuggle up on the couch all afternoon and watch TV. And I have been for big chunks of the afternoon. And at night. And if I am lucky, while I drink my morning cup of coffee.
Am I hiding? Am I hibernating?
I think it’s both. It’s cold and snowy out, so of course I want to stay inside. But there is also a part of me that’s working through a few things that happened during the holiday, so I guess I do kind of want to hide out for a bit, too.
I am still working out. I am still eating better. I mean, I couldn’t totally check out and make these yummy dishes:
|Roasted celery, carrots, and beets.|
Here's a lesson learned: roasted celery is too stringy.
|Roasted sweet potatos, butternut squash, and apples |
|Vegetarian black bean chili - AWESOME!!|
So yes, I am taking care of business, but I would rather not.
And I don’t even think I would be writing this post if I hadn’t seen Snooki on the Today Show promoting, not her show, but . . .wait for it . . . wait for it . . . HER NOVEL!
A novel, for Christ’s sake! If she can write a novel about a “gorilla juice head,” I can write a 300ish word post. Seriously!
I’m sure she’s a nice enough girl and all. I could see her promoting her slipper line or anything else to do with her look and lifestyle. But a novel?! Not even a memoir but a novel?!
And don’t even get me started how she dodged Matt’s questions about drinking. Ironically enough, while watching last week’s show, I posted on facebook that I thought Snooki would be the cast member most likely to become a patient of Dr. Drew on Celebrity Rehab.
Anyone else thinking the same thing?
(And I realize that I am contributing to the problem as to why this show is number one on MTV right now and the culture of rewarding bad behavior. It’s just so hard to look away).
Well, that’s all I got. Snooki’s book is probably better than this post. So sorry for that.
Well, anyone else hibernating and/or hiding? How can you tell which one?
