Tuesday Tangents

I'm going to make good use of this one! I'm so unfocused today with all the noise and everything going on. So here's a few "tangents".

The "Crunchy Chicken" blog mentions a book called "Sleeping Naked is Green...". I'm not going to read the book, but the blog write up is good. I used to sleep naked a long time ago, but I decided that having a lower heating bill by putting some clothes on is also a green thing to do.



On another tangent - we went grocery shopping last night and my husband and daughter reached for the Golden Oreos. For some reason I think that regular Oreos are a no-no, but an occasional "golden" one is okay. Then they reached for "Double-stuffed" and I thought "well that's not so good", but they went in the cart anyway. After my daughter went to bed, I found my husband had opened the package before I did so I had a couple. Then I looked at the calories. 2 cookies have 150 calories! YIKES! Today I looked up the calories for the other kinds. 3 of the regular Oreos (chocolate cookie, white frosting) have 140 calories. The golden cookies actually have more calories than the chocolate ones. Of course if you only eat the frosting then you are only getting 20 calories, or 40 calories for the double-stuffed. My daughter usually just eats the frosting. I think I'm going to have to stay away from them. A bowl of cereal with milk has less calories and is more filling.


On a third tangent... after visiting the nursing home this morning, I came back to work for more construction. I was hoping they'd do it while I was gone, but no such luck. So I opened up some music and put my headphones on for a while. Here's what I was listening to--


The noise got louder and I finally had to resort to ear plugs. I HATE ear plugs. I'm hoping that these guys call it a day soon. I don't think I can keep the plugs in for very long. Meanwhile we have computer issues that are not my husband's responsibility and my work flow is being hindered a great deal. Oh darn. Maybe I should have stayed at the nursing home longer, but that wouldn't have done any good. Oh well.

Join me tomorrow for Writing Wednesday!
