Does anyone remember that show Temptation Island? It was so bad, but so good. Anyway, I got to thinking about it when I made dinner last night – something fast, easy and what I’ve been wanting to try after seeing it out there in blogland.

BBQ Flavored Tempeh

Toasted on Nature’s Own Double Fiber Bread with Avocado and Tomato

And Kashi Moroccan Curry Pilaf on the side.

I love that I can literally throw this bag in the micro for just 90 seconds and voila!

It had great flavor, and even better chew. It filled me up! I couldn’t even finish my glass of water.

I loved Night #1 of NO TV. I read my newest issue of Shape and started on Citizen Girl. My company merged with another last year, and we finally came together in one office last week. The other company had a huge bookshelf they call a “Lending Library.” There are so many books to choose from and this was one of them. It’s all based on the honor code. Cool, no?

Anyway, I woke up feeling awesome and like I hadn’t wasted any brain cells! The pooch and I went on a super long walk, and then I came back to pack Geoff’s and my lunches and cook up some breakfast. In this morning’s bowl of oats:

1/2 Cup Quaker Oats
1/2 Cup Skim Milk
1/2 Banana
Dash of Cinnamon
Dash of Shredded Coconut
Dried Cherries
Dash of Flax Seed
Spoonful of PB

Yum, and I think it’ll hold me over!

Off to get lots of work done today because tomorrow I’m “Going, Going, Back to Back, To Ohio, Ohio, Ohio.” Do you remember that Notorious B.I.G. song? Well, Cali – but it sure does remind me of college.

And college memories will ensue – it is my 5 Year College Reunion in good ‘ole Granville, Ohio. (GreenDogWine: I’ll be in your state!)

Has it really been that long???? And yes, we’re staying in the dorms.

Get ready for some fun pictures and trips down memory lane. Not really directly of me – because I really was a chub-a-lub Graduation Day. I’ll try to scan that picture to show the inflammation from all the beer consumption. Here are a few I surprisingly have on my computer because no, we didn’t have Facebook in college (thank God), and I am that old.

Antiquing – this was a regular occurrence to many of the boys in our dorm.

The Simpsons Party – we were all assigned characters from the show and came in costume. These were some of our boys senior year.

Spring Break ‘04 – Sailing on my friend’s yacht to Key West. Yea, I know. Note: I was the school’s charity case.

Forty Party


Senior Year – Random Party


I will say – I have a feeling I’ll be making a few better decisions then I would have five years ago.
