night off.

by Janetha on March 30, 2011

in meals

the furnace is out.

we had a water softener installed yesterday and they messed with the electricity in the utility closet and now our furnace is out.

i am cold.

on top of that, i feel like i am coming down with some sort of sickness. my belly hurts. i am sneezing and sniffling.

the ice cold house isn’t helping.

but the bowl of cereal and mug of cinnamon vanilla tea sure is.

I hope you feel better!! :)

I would rather freeze.
The last green food I had was lettuce from a salad.
I sleep with 2 pillows.
I have a phobia of rollercoasters. I will only go on them if they are small, don’t have a big drop and don’t go upside down!
The last thing I took a photo of was my lunch for this afternoon.

Fun questions! :)

Hope you are feeling better soon, that tea looks yummy.

1. Although I love the heat, freezing to death might be less painful. My body would go numb, and then I could be preserved like a woolly mammoth.

2. Last green thing I ate was pesto pasta last night. It had some green in it

3. I sleep with 2 pillows

4. My biggest fear is worms

5. The last photo I took was of the pesto pasta dinner.

1. would you rather burn to death or freeze to death? Freeze, for sure. I hear that you fall asleep before you die, and that would be preferable to fire. Yikes!

2. what was the last green food you ate? Green beans last night with dinner.

3. how many pillows do you sleep with? Two, plus my husband. :)

4. do you have any phobias? I’m not a fan of bugs, esp. spiders, or really small spaces.

5. what was the last thing you took a photo of? The cracks in myceiling, where water was dripping. I wanted to make sure that I documented the issue, in case the landlord wanted to brush me off. Grrrrr.

1. Neither. I want to die from a heart attack while I’m running. OR, die while eating cake
2. green food: basil on the slice of margherita pizza I ate at the BRAND NEW WHOLE FOODS at trolley square. yummmmm.
3. one pillow. sometimes two – only if I can’t breathe and have to prop myself up.
4. Birds kinda freak me out. I’m learning to (mostly) get over it though. My biggest fear is not being good enough. phobia? maybe not, but might as well be.
5. My snack yesterday! ha ha ha. carrots and cheese.

Sorry you’re not feeling well. Enjoy the blogging break – you deserve more than you take. try not to freeze to death, OR burn to death. This world needs more Janetha G. xoxo feel better soooooooon!!

1. would you rather burn to death or freeze to death? Freeze. For the same reasons you said, also I hate being hot! Also, I heard that when you freeze to death you go through a brief phase of hallucination and euphoria. It would be nice to be happy while dying, I guess?

2. what was the last green food you ate?I haven’t eaten anything green today or yesterday! Blowing it. Tuesday I had broccoli twice. Nummy.

3. how many pillows do you sleep with? Start out the night with two and usually end up with none under me and two on the floor. Goes back to hate being hot, usually I throw them because they make me hot.

4. do you have any phobias? I hate snakes. I hate rollercoasters. I am very fearful of car and plane crashes.

5. what was the last thing you took a photo of? Ronin rolling around on a dead worm at Liberty park an hour ago

1. Freeze. You basically just go to sleep.

2. Peppers.

3. Two now, was one.

4. Speaking in front of crowds. Spiders. Snakes. Heights. But I still managed to survive all these things. Go figure.

5. Eggs. Haha.

hope you’re feeling better soon! I’m just answering the pillow one. I sleep with four pillows. It’s ridiculous, but I have to have THREE between my legs. I literally fold them in half and shove them under my hamstrings and sleep on my back. it’s not comfortable, but it saves me from my back/leg issues!

Aww, hope you’re feeling better soon girlie!

1. Burn to death or freeze to death? Hmm, well…burning to death WOULD be quicker, so I guess I go with that morbid decision. Haha!
2. I had a salad of mixed baby greens for dinner last night.
3. I sleep with one pillow…a Tempurpedic, aka the BEST pillow EVAH!
4. I am super accident prone and one of my phobias is falling and hitting my face…something about thinking of taking a mouth dive into the floor makes me squeamish!
5. Last thing I took a pic of was my pancakes I had for b.fast! Yum!
