Doing my nightly round of internet snooping, I found out I definitely wasn’t chosen for the writing workshop I applying to. I had an inkling, but with no official rejection, I held a crumb of optimism. So that’s kind of a bummer.
Also the True Detective finale sucked out loud. I think I’ll go into this later, but I was really unhappy with they way it ended. It’s never a good thing when your story ends with more questions then answers,
Despite a few disappointments this evening, I did make some really exciting plans. I finally booked and confirmed my fall trip to Paris. It’s super exciting, and now I’ll have something to look forward to when I get down.
Lord knows I’m a voodoo child
It’s Q&A Time!
Q: How sad are you about Harold Ramis?
A: Terribly, horribly sad. As a youngster he was my favorite Ghostbuster and maybe had a bit of a crush on Egon. He was an incredibly creative, funny writer and actor.
Q: Are you watching True Detective?
A: Oh my god I’m OBSESSED! I talk about it every Monday with the other writer I work with. Time is a flat circle and all that shit.
Q: How was your day?
A: Pretty shitty.

I just got home and got a jury summons in the mail. My first.
It’s for next month.
I always kinda wanted to do jury duty, but now that I’m not 12 and also have a job, it seems like kind of a pain in the ass. I hope it’s at least an interesting case to satisfy my inner Ms. Marple/Harriet the Spy.
Kings County court system, here I come!
So, I started getting Graze boxes at work so (hopefully) curb my incessant snack binges. I’m two boxes in and and I’m pretty happy about it. If you haven’t heard of Graze, here’s the deal: it’s a box of portion controlled snacks sent to you periodically. The snacks are pretty randomized, but you can rate them - and future snacks are given based on those ratings.
There seem to be four major types of snacks, and from reading other reviews, flapjacks seem to be the favorite. These are like granola bars. Everyone says pretty much the same thing “Oh wow they’re so moist and yummy!” And here is why: margarine. I’m okay with that, and I do agree that these are pretty yummy, but they’re also what I gather to be the most caloric. I got a fruit and seed flapjack in my first box and they did not disappoint. Rated high.
They also have dipping snacks. I had one in each of the two boxes I received so far and i’m on the fence. The first was My Thai which was really good; soy crackers with a chili dipping sauce. The following box had black pepper crackers with chutney and I actually didn’t even finish it. The great part about Graze is that I could tell them to never send that one, but I’d be willing to have My Thai again. Democracy!
I got savory snacks in each box too, which is kind of a large term I guess but whatever. My first box contained a snack pod called cheese board which ultimately had no cheese in it (which was total crap!) but was a pretty yummy collection of crackers and cashews anyway. My last box had a portion of pistachios, which I love usually, but these had this weird “Mississippi BBQ” seasoning on it and I decided to pass on it, as I can just get pistachios in the future on my own.
The last type of snack is the fruit & seed mix, which I originally wrote off as a waste, but I have to say they’ve been consistently some of my favorites since starting. My first box had this one mix called “Garden of England” which was one of the best things I’ve ever had and I wish my box had just been four packs of it. It was dried apple, mini strawberries and blackcurrants. I’ve never had blackcurrants before but I am a believer! I also had a mix with pear in it that was really delish too. Fruit and seed mixes forever and ever. Amen.
I hope Graze will get me into healthier habits. I get it sent to work in hopes I go for that instead of whats in the kitchen. So far it’s worked, although today I totally binged on sweets. Baby steps.
The highlight of any show is having a hormonal girl scream right into your ear. #CalmDown #OldLady #ArcticMonkeys
