Fortune Cookie

| | Comments (10)

Since I know that I'm supposed to be watching what I eat (and I really do! I take a close-up, intense look of every fork- or spoon- or chopstickful that passes under my nose on the way into my mouth), I've decided to follow the advice frequently offered by nutritionists and to write down what I eat.

But since I don't really like to make lists, I've decided to do it a bit differently. So instead of writing down "Today I ate chicken cashew, rice and a fortune cookie," I'm just going to write down what fortune I got in the cookie. That way I'll not only remember that I had Chinese takeout for dinner on Thursday the 13th of January 2005, but it would be interesting to look back say, a year from now, and see whether or not that particular fortune befell me.

I've even created a whole new category especially for the Fortune Cookie.

However, being the juveniles that we are, the boy and I've decided that no Fortune Cookie fortune would be entirely complete without adding the words 'in bed' at the end of it.

So here, with that little modification at the end, my first Fortune Cookie fortune:

"Sometimes a stranger can bring great meaning to your life... in bed."

wow. how does the boy feel about a stranger bringing great meaning to your life in bed? Will we be having an entry soon about three in the bed and the little one said 'roll over'?

lol I've never heard of the "in bed" rule before. Congrats, you just gave me my first laugh of the day.

I watch what I eat, too ...

I watch it disappear.

All's I gotta say is this:

You know you're livin' the life you wanna when you eat STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE drizzled with CHOCOLATE for breakfast.

Mmm mmm BITCH!!

Breakfast of Champions, man.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
