Three Tangent Tuesday

Okay, okay.  I give in, Miss Hungry Runner Girl...I like this idea too much to not participate.  Plus you asked very nicely.  Here's to letting the world know how weird I am!  :)

Random #1: I totally have issues with textures of food.  I can absolutely love the flavor of something, but if I hate the texture it's a game changer.  Coconut is a great example--love the flavor, HATE the texture.  So I don't eat it.  Can't eat it...getting grossed out just thinking about it.  Don't even get me started on onions.
Looking at this pictures makes me want to throw up a little bit...
Random #2:  Yesterday I nearly succeeded in eating an entire bag of Farley's Circus Peanuts.  For those doing the math (and I was), that's 980 calories of sugary goodness.  Oh yes.  I totally oinked out.  And subsequently put myself into a sugar coma and really, really, really regretted my decision.  My addiction to these things has GOT to stop.
Seriously...just looking at this has me wanting more even though I know I can't stop myself.  I need circus peanut rehab.

Random #3:  I am currently in the midst of a viewing marathon of Battlestar Gallactica.  My husband (who is admittedly a sexy IT nerd) had heard good things about it and fired it up the other day on Netflix.  Turns out it's actually pretty decent!  It appeals to my geeky side.  We're currently on Season 2.  I'm hopeful that I will continue to like the series.  I'll keep you updated.
That's it for this Tuesday...and can I comment that it feels like a Thursday rather than a Tuesday?  This week needs to be done already.  But, I am very excited to be hanging out with my best friend tonight.  I need to pick an official nickname for her because I am going to be talking about her a lot more in the next few months since she informed me a couple days ago that she is going to run Top of Utah with me!!!  SO excited!  I think I shall call her the Running Roommate from now on (unless she totally protests the name).  She was my roommate for years, and if she can put up with me for that long and still like me she is totally a keeper!  

What are your Tuesday plans?  How are your goals coming along?


  1. I love Hungry Runner Girl! She is awesomesauce and I follower her on twitter too!

    I know a lot of people with a texture problem! So glad I am not one of those people. I would die without onions and other fun foods! As for your sugar coma, I can not eat the stuff. Just looking at it wireds me out.

    Today, I am going to get my hair done! Yippee for happy hair!

  2. Oh my god. You are hilarious - you totally crack me up!! I LOVE coconut, even the texture. I have a weird thing about taste and aftertaste - like I put some protein powder in my AM smoothie and just the aroma of it totally grossed me out. But I choked it down. And re: circus peanuts? My dad LOVES those. I think they are DISGUSTING, and I can't believe you almost ate a whole bag!!! Loved your random facts, and I look forward to my notificiation of your new blog posting every day. :) Love love.

  3. I am SO with you on coconut! I can't stand the stuff either. Blech! But now, I do love me some onions. LOL

  4. Ditto on the onions, but I like that the texture changes when cooked. Maybe sprinkling some coconut in the bag of circus peanuts would be good aversion therapy.
