As I type this, I'm simultaneously holding a powered blowdryer. Perhaps I keep having to backspace and correct single-finger typos, and perhaps I'm getting more hot air on my wall than on my tresses, but you have to admit-- it's mildly amazing. I plan to add this to my catalogue of skills for future resumes and reality TV show applications. Hayley is a fun-loving go-getter with a wild streak as long as her list of talents: making brownies from a box mix, construction paper crafts, dancing the robot, drying her hair and blogging in a single bound.... I don't have a wild-streak or the capacity for fun-loving and/or go-getting. I lied about those parts. Also, frankly, I turned the dryer off halfway through that paragraph and hoped you wouldn't notice. I'm sorry for deceiving you.
In other news, today marks Day 5 of my challenge to go without dairy products for an entire month. Still no crises. Pizza continues to look amazing, but I'm noticing that butter is losing its appeal for me. My dining hall keeps a heap of it on the salad bar and I actually turned my nose up at it, thinking, "Yeah, that's definitely not something I need inside of me" and also, "Great, I'm one of those people now." I wonder if this trend will continue until May or if I'll be dying for a croissant by Friday. Either way, this morning's breakfast was a bowl of soy milk and Apple Jacks (hadn't had those in forever and they were awesome... until I saw that sugar is the first ingredient. Yeeks.). Lunch was salad with raspberries and nuts piled on top. Afternoon Binge Disaster was about five servings of original Sun Chips, but I brought the team back together to finish strong at dinner time, choosing to cut up a veggie burger patty and eat it on a bed of greens. I had a banana between breakfast and lunch, too, and some blueberries with dinner. The chip overload was less a result of hunger and more a product of the, uh, moon phases, if you will, so I don't feel too bad about indulging. Altogether, today was another success.
Your comments regarding yesterday's post were both helpful and amusing (YES, I realize the difference between sex and gender, but gender jokes aren't as funny!) and I think I have a better understanding of my assignment now. I also have a better understanding of just how bad my French is (thanks, native speakers) and want to ask you, as per Scott's lol-worthy comment, how you excuse the fact that "vagina" is a masculine noun! Come on, French. Get it together. Anyway, I hope you guys realize that my love for you isn't a publicity charade or anything-- I look forward to reading your responses every day, and have tons of appreciation for those of you who come back on a frequent basis, whether or not you leave a comment. You make me feel awesome. I want to take you on a magic carpet ride past galloping white horses. Or something. You pick.
On that note, and definitely not just because my phone tells me The Situation is calling because, pfft, writing this is totally more important... I've gotta bounce. I have homework to do and teeth to brush and-- shut up!-- boyfriends to attend to :). I hope you all have a lovely day, and I'll see you guys tomorrow!
