Solo dinner

Wow, was I ever angry yesterday? Who was that beyotch? Sheesh.

Today was rough too but only because I didn't get enough sleep last night. And apparently I hadn't made up the calories either because I was hungry for most of the day. I had KD for dinner last night (I know, ghetto) and leftover KD for lunch (more ghettO). But breakfast was relatively healthy: yoghurt and All-Bran buds. I had a coffee too (decaf with skim milk). But by the time the afternoon rolled around, I needed something large and hot (get your minds out of the gutter boys!) and chocolatey. I followed the large hot chocolate up with two organic chocolate chip cookies. But I was still hungry when I got home. I talked to A on the phone for a while and then decided I needed a large hit of protein. So I walked to Crispy Roll on Queen Street for solo dinner. Well, that's not completely true. I took Malcolm Gladwell with me. He's such a fascinating dinner date. I digress.

For dinner, I had wakame (seaweed) salad which is packed full of iron. Then I had beef gyoza (maybe I needed the fat?). I finished up with two pieces of hokkigai (surf clam, which I just learned is unsustainable so booo) sushi and six (that's right, six!) pieces of salmon sashimi. By the end of dinner, I was feeling very muchly happy. I actually enjoyed myself. It was nice to be on my own in a quiet restaurant with just the right amount of food and a stimulating book. Plus, it helps that I don't have to pay for transit in this city anymore.

There are brownies in the oven and an episode of Chuck on the faux PVR. Yay I like my life today :)

And, c'mon, Tricia Helfer from BSG was the guest star! I mean, she's not my type, but still: synergystic geek-out!

LOL. I never got around to Chuck last night. Hopefully later tonight after the gym though.
