Five Things Friday 1.27.12

Thing 1:  My brain felt like mush last night so a good laugh was much appreciated  🙂  Here are three “corny” foodie riddles  Purchase Order of Miami, Inc. left me [scroll down to the bottom to see the answers]…

A)  You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?

B)  What do you get if you divide the circumference of a pumpkin by its diameter?

C)  What did the grape say when he was sat on?


Thing 2:  I am 100% confident that yesterday’s snack [PB & Cottage Cheese Jelly Roll-Ups] and this morning’s bfast [Cereal Berry Cobbler To-Go] will be repeated.

old-fashioned oats + Kashi Go Lean + PB puffins + Silk Light Vanilla Soymilk + cottage cheese + cinnamon + Stevia + frozen mixed berries

Thing 3:  I am SO excited for this weekend!  It’s a 4-day weekend [Monday and Tuesday are teacher workdays] and I’ve got some fun things planned…

-Attending my first BodyPump Class

-Coffee catch-up dates with a few girlfriends

-Date night with Ryan

-Working at the housing development and sitting in the new model home [my part-time job]

-Celebrating my momma’s birthday!

-Sleeping in Monday and Tuesday morning

-Attending a professional development workshop titled “Coping with the Challenges of Adolescence: Privacy, Safety, and Physical Development”

Thing 4:  I seem to be sucked into trashy, reality TV this season…  The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Bachelor, and Jersey Shore- they’re so bad, they’re so good!

Thing 5:  A few recent reads worth sharing…

An aspiring chef lost her sense of smell in an accident, but rather than letting it shatter her dreams, she learned how to rely on her other senses and her passion for cooking only intensified…

-More than a dozen of teens from a school in upstate New York school are experiencing mysterious, Tourette’s-like symptoms?!

-I type with my 2 hands and 10 fingers, this guy types with a 10-inch chopstick

-As if her life wasn’t already going to be filled with enough prosperity, Jay-Z and Beyoncé chose Oprah as Blue Ivy’s godmother!

-A pair of high heels sure can make a woman feel sexy, but are they also harmful to her health?

[these crystallized high heels are for sale on Etsy]

P.S.  It was a productive day at school…

Daily Memorable Moment January 27:  Completing [and surviving] the first half of my first year teaching!

Question:  What TV shows are you hooked on?  Besides the trashy reality shows, I’m hooked on My Fair Wedding and Storage Wars [and Seinfeld reruns, it’s Ryan’s fave]…

Question:  Have you ever had a dream that woke you up in the middle of the night?  Last night I woke up around 3AM from a scary dream that I was in a car accident…  In my dream, I was driving over a little hill and when I got to the top of the hill, a car was coming straight towards me and hit me head on…  I woke up this morning all shook up and ironically I saw an accident on my way to work :/


The answers to the riddles…

A)  Corn on the cob- you throw away the skin [or sheaf], then cook it, eat the corn, then throw away the cob.

B)  Pumpkin pi.

C)  Nothing, he just let out a little whine.
