Christmas continues to get closer, but my level of enthusiasm stays the same. I’m not really surprised, because for me Christmas is just another day.
Last night was fraught with questionable choices, such as choosing Werder Bremen as “my” Bundesliga team. I made one fairly-good choice and that was to ride my trainer for 50 minutes, though I tweaked my left knee a bit doing so.
After riding I tasked myself to make dinner. I am still in “use it up mode” which in this instance was another questionable choice. As I dumped an “additional” ingredient into the soup I was preparing in the Instant Pot I had my doubts about whether or not it should be consumed. In the end I decided food poisoning might put a damper on the rest of my week, so I trashed the entire meal.
Fear not intrepid reader, I had plenty to eat. In the process of making what was supposed to be dinner I was also hard-boiling some eggs. Egg salad, cashews, and snacky snacks for dinner? Sure, why not.
With dinner I planned to drink a new-to-me beer that I bought a six-pack of relatively recently. I put the a can on the counter and popped it open. To my dismay it erupted like a weak volcano, spilling beer onto the counter, which also then spilled onto the floor. 😡 “Perhaps I shook it up accidentally?” I thought. Beer number two was carefully removed from the refrigerator, and opened over the kitchen sink; fool me once… It too started to erupt though I opened this one much slower. I was able to pour the can”s contents into a glass and was rewarded with 20 ounces of head. Beers number three through six were opened over the sink and as each one overflowed its vessel upon opening, was poured down the drain. To the company’s credit, I bitched about this on Untappd and they have reached out to me.
After tweaking my knee again while attempting to put on slippers, yes you read that right, I decided to call it a night and watch “television”. You know, I have watched (the actual) Season 5 of “The Great British Bake Off” three times and the same woman has won each time I have watched it! 😉
