8 Jan

Today’s gladness is plain and simple. It made my Wednesday complete in the most straightforward, processed, neon-colored way possible:

cheez

Mixed with milk on some shell noodles, topped with shredded Holland cheese and fried sausage, green onions, Creole seasoning and some sent-from-America Parmesan cheese… dinner was heaven on earth.

It was a slow day here in Az. My counterpart has left for a few days to visit her son; my convo clubs don’t start until the end of the month; other activities fall later in the week. Today was a day made to indulge on Christmas sent care packages, work on some lesson plans, and conquer the better portion of Freaks and Geeks.  To complete this glory day, my partner and I feasted on our elaborate mac & cheese and ate M&M’s til our stomachs ached.

Some days you win, some days you … well, you still win, but regret it just a little bit more afterwards.

Do the feasters gluttonous feast?
Do the corpulent sleepers sleep? have they lock’d and bolted doors?
Still be ours the diet hard, and the blanket on the ground,
Pioneers! O pioneers!   – Walt Whitman
