My rantings

What does one do when they are getting married in just under 20 days!?!? 


They fantasize about married life with their honey. They imagine themselves staring at their doubled-up ring all the time. --ok, not all the time because they are going to be really good and focused on school but...you get the idea.

Has anyone noticed that Martha Stewart is making 10 times more cash than she did before the insider trading debacle?

Yesterday I had a oddly tough time watching the September 11th program thing. I came in from seeing Toy Story 3 and as soon as I looked at the tv I literally (really) got weak in the knees. I instantly flashed back to that morning. I pulled into the parking lot at work listening to the radio reports that there had been a plane crash in NY. Thoughts were along the lines of, "Wow, that's messed up." and "I mean, the towers are tall, but how in the hell does a plane run into one?!" I went inside and everyone was in the break room watching the news. And then...THEN, I watched the television, wide-eyed, as the other plane crashed into the tower. I was afraid. I knew there was no way there were TWO accidental plane crashes, 20 minutes apart. And when the towers collapsed, oh my goodness. That was a terrifying moment. I (of course) worked like 10 minutes away from home. The kids were home with their dad and I wanted nothing more but to go home and hug my babies. Watching yesterday evoked similar emotion. It's hard to believe it's been 9 years. And I remind myself that God's plan (no matter whether we understand it or not) is always perfect.

I inadvertently bought fat-free coffee creamer last time. I came to the realization today after having some issues. My body doesn't like fake sugar. Weird things happen to me and it's not comfortable at all. I refuse to eat aspartame and sucralose especially. I wish I could escape high fructose corn syrup but that seems near impossible without quadrupling our grocery bill by going organic. I promise, as a chemical engineer, that I will not engineer some odd, likely toxic chemical to help some company make oogads of money while concurrently wrecking the general population in some way.

Um. Let's see. Fake sugar makes up approximately 30% of my daily intake by volume (since it has no calories). I know Aspartame is making me a mutant, but um how else will I drink the Diet Dr Pepper and Crystal Lite. HFCS makes me loopy, like a drunk. I often stop and wonder aloud what is wrong with me and then remember that I had "real pop"

Aw. That's okay. I'll still be your friend when you're a mutant.
