"we could invite the chess club, but they drink...start fights."

it's an amazing fact that if you actually eat lunch you don't spend the afternoon thinking "hungry...so hungry". we ordered thai food today and it was a very good decision. it was neither cheap not low calorie and it was great. i especially liked that i can still only eat half because then i get dinner out of it too. and that pleases me. we spent all day watching the construction that is preventing us from having customers. the thai food excursion was the definitive of boredom eating. i have to learn to accept that it's ok to give in once in a while. not the end of the world. and it's nice not to be counting the minutes till dinner because i keep forgetting extra snacks.

i keep reading about how green tea is supposed to boost your metabolism amongst the myriad* other great things it does for you. i found a few bags of lady grey green in the great tea consolidation of 2007 and wow, i really liked that tea. now i'm working on my earl grey green which is almost as good and which i have a lot more of to whittle down. i have to say i've been hungry with capital grrr since i started drinking it. i can't prove it's related but i love unlikely and un-provable weightloss theorems so it works for me all around. and it's tasty. if i figure out a way to measure honey well and am happy with the calorie content (don't know it off the top of my head) i might switch there as well. honey is up on all the same lists for goodness of health so it would be a good habit.

and for no reason in particular, the four door wrangler is painfully unpleasant to look at. vomitously so. fyi.

*i can't seem to decide if this is a correct usage. sarah?

Myriad, huh? I think you used it right. The way I remember it is that you can say either, "The myriad fish in the ocean," or "The myriads of fish in the ocean." I have no idea what the grammar-science is behind that, I just know that it's right.

I keep seeing that Lipton green tea in stores and I want to try it but I don't want to waste a dollar on something gross either. Why don't you be the guinea pig? :)

I like all green teas, but i probably wouldn't choose lipton, just because lipton isn't my favorite. if you're a tea person, it's a very gentle flavor. the greys are simply the addition of some bergamot and make it much more fragrant. it's really great cold too if you like iced tea, make it warm to melt the honey and maybe add some lemon. if you're not a tea person already though it's a lot different than coffee.

I have a quick question about art galleries for you: If you work in a gallery in which I would like to have a show, how does that process work? It's for a story. E-mail me if you like.

Hey, Buffy quotes! Your blog is the coolest :-) I'm no grammar expert, but myriad sounded ok in that sentence to me.
