19 May

So, my one week “break” is over.  Classes start again.  I can’t wait to be done with this program.

Warrior Dash is on Saturday.  I am so excited.  I know I did not update blogville on this but I was very very ill last week.  I was in so much nerve-related pain I had to get a steroid shot AND take vicodin.  Just an FYI- steroid injections hurt like a sumbitch.  You can literally feel the medicine go through every nerve and organ, so the vicodin came in handy.  The really bad part is that not working out cramped my style.  Now I am so out of shape for the dash.  I will just have to take it easy and not over do it on Saturday.  It should be so much fun!

Remember all those bottles of hot sauce Turtle sent to me?  It took FedEx a whole week to deliver them.  Their incompetence knows no bounds.  I mean, I had to make phone calls everyday telling these folks to deliver after hours since I did not get home till after 5.  No one got the memo.  Not even the delivery guy.  I was told to drive an hour to Chattanooga to pick up my package.  One hour!  Eventually someone got their shit together and delivered to me at work and had the decency to call and apologize for all the drama.

I finally finished watching Queen Seon Deok.  This has got to be the most depressing k-drama I have ever seen…almost everyone dies in the end.  I need a good ole comedy.

Turtle made me soft shell tacos a few weeks back.

I made moimoi this past week with eggs and corned beef.  Yum.  It took me almost an hour and a half to wash and peel the beans.  I hate using those processed packages.  Fresh ingredients all the way baby!

That’s all I got folks…I am looking forward to a nice summer.

    Too much trouble to ask for moi moi recipe?What do you cook it in?

    My aunty saves time by blending the beans in a blender and it takes out most of the work of separating the skin.

    Sorry about your nerve thingie oh, hope the shots helped at least.

    I very much feel your pain on school, break went by quick quick.

      No problem…I will send you an e-mail with the recipe. I cant use a blender..my blender is industrial strenght and will pulvarize the beans. A hand mortar and pestle will be better. Now I have to buy one.

    Ndo oh about your illness. Hope you’re all good now.

    So, I only have one question: What the heck is Warrior Dash?!

      He he he…see dis girl. If you had been reading my blog religiously you would know that I registered for the craziest race on the planet…and by planet, I mean America. And by America, I mean the US.

      It is a 3.22 obstacle course.

    Pele o, hope you are much better, pain’s no fun at all. The moimoi looks so tasty, any chance of getting some over here? Tried to watch K-dramas on dramafever.com, but can’t cos I’m in the Uk :(. All the best on Saturday, but please don’t overdo it, there’ll always be another Warrior Dash, but just one LL. I’ll be rootin’ for you.

      Sorry about the kdrama thingie…i cant believe it is regional only. I am now watching Damo which is really good.

      Oooh…am so excited about the dash. I hope I manage not to kill myself on some treacherous contraption….
