As I lay me down to sleep I think to myself:
-I want a cigarette really freaking bad , but I also am super excited it’s been three entire days.
-I miss my boy super bad… His snuggles, his kisses and just everything about him.
- I am glad I live with my bestie and her boy, I’m happy we all have each other. And I’m glad for nights of Chinese, Tekken and laughs. We need a new roomie… Whoever moves in is super lucky to be part of our family.
Quitting smoking makes you do really crazy things.
I have been up since noon and so far I have:
1. Made coffee and eaten a bowl of lucky charms!
2. Walked to pet store to buy SamMonster some noms. I also found a really cute doggy hair bow for .50 cents.
3. Cleaned up my desk area, vacuumed our back room, swifferwetjetted the kitchen, clean the outside of all the cupboards, dusted all surfaces in the area, AND most recently reorganized our pots and pans cupboard.
Keeping my mind off cigarettes is hard work, so now I am off to read some Game of Thrones (about 150 pages left in book one) and enjoy a pecan/feta salad with diet coke on the back porch.
I hate working the mid shift on Sunday, it is none stop.
Brian has only been gone two days and I already miss him - doesn’t help I haven’t seen him since Wednesday anyways. That may not seem like much, cause listen, Ive been in LDRs too - but I dont like them for a reason… I’ll say it, I’m needy.
I wish my friend Tim would move to Chicago.
I wish I knew who was going to live in our house if Tim isn’t.
So I’m working on putting my writing on the internet.
The url wont be as is for long, I just got frustrated trying to figure one out and it was the song lyric I heard at that moment. So yeah, thank Jay Z for the awesomeness, or lack there of.
Anyways. Click through and tell me what you think!?
Also, I am fricken terrible with all things design related so if one of my more talented friends (Tim, Trevor, Brian, Edman) want to help a lady out. I have the writing talent okay… any more then that and you are asking too much.
So my friend Kris owns a really awesome local ice cream company called Nice Cream and I just read this article today about how they might get the plug pulled by the state because of these really obscure and asinine laws regarding pasteurization.
The state is saying that she must change her ingredients, not work out of a communal kitchen, and buy at $40,000 pasteurization machine or they’ll shut her down.
This is a big load of shit. Instead of using the fresh, handpicked, local, organic ingredients that she uses now they want her to use strawberry syrup and pre-made ice cream mix chock full of preservatives and chemicals. They want her to take this really great, pure product and make it really shitty and processed. They also want to treat her the exact same way they treat huge multinational corporations and force her to buy exorbitantly expensive equipment that no small business could reasonably afford.
This is also a perfect example of insane bureaucracy hurting great, local businesses. Nice Cream is the kind of company that we want around. It’s a very well liked company run by really awesome local people who are genuinely interested in their community.
I’m really not sure what the most effective solution to this is, but I’m guessing writing your state representative would be a good place to start. If you live in Illinois I’d recommend getting in touch with them and encouraging them to amend the laws to help protect local businesses like Nice Cream.
This really bums me out. If you’ve paid attention to my tumblr this year at all, you know how much I love Nice Cream. Such a great local company with all natural, fresh ingredients. It’s disappointing to see they may possibly get screwed over and put out of business if they aren’t willing to fall in line with the bigger, mass-produced, low-quality products that somehow set the standards for how food is produced and handled. There is a very serious flaw in our food systems and I’d hate to see such a great company get shut down because of it. There is information listed above if you care and have the time to reach out and help this situation.
This is my favorite ice cream.
I venture to a different Whole Foods then the one I work at JUST to buy this product.
