« Previous Day Next Day »

Was trying to do some late night editing and suddenly realized I had dozed off at the laptop and held the W key down for 23 pages. Guess it's time to turn in

For much of my life, salad was not a food I enjoyed. I've always hated lettuce. It was tasteless and it's texture made me gag and I just hated it. I'm not saying it was a reasonable or logical mentality. My wife convinced me to try spinach as an adult and I've found I am fine with it. It doesn't cause revulsion in me the way iceberg lettuce does. I use it in my smoothies and occasionally, like this week, I use it for lunch salads.

Now, I am not thrilled by spinach salad, but it is food. And it is healthy. Over the years my recipe has been purposefully simple and bland: spinach, chicken, almonds, olive oil, some garlic salt (not a lot, and mostly as part of cooking the chicken.)

This week I've added chopped raw bell pepper and I have to say, I quite liked it. I think I probably needed a little more chicken, but overall I was quite happy with this lunch.

I am determined to prioritize weightloss this year and get my health back to where it needs to be. We'll see how successful I am, but if today's salad holds my interest then it is an exciting development as a go-to option for my daily lunches.

Finished Season 3 of Man in the High Castle and I began Season 4 but just am not feeling it right now. I might go back to it at some point, but I switched over to HBO Max and have been reminded of one of my favorite movies: The Mummy.

Released in, oh god, 1999. It ages well and is so very enjoyable as a silly adventure movie.

Why Myanmar's military overthrew the nation's democratically elected government

I made a post late last night about the coup in Myanmar and I tried to give a flawed view. After finishing it and posting it, I left it for 15 minutes and then reconsidered. I reconsidered my post for a few reasons. First, I don't know enough. I was operating off of two articles and my basic knowledge. And secondly, because I was trying to be philosophical and saying that both sides saw themselves as doing right. That isn't a relevant perspective here, where the military has taken a coup in this way.
