It's a Problem

Two days in a row. I am cat-sitting for a few days, which is the only reason I am able to update.
I eat a LOT when I do things like this because I don't have my own belongings to occupy me so I just sort of roam, trapped, around other people's living spaces and end up in the kitchen because at least I know how those rooms work. I also ate a lot today because I treat not being home like a vacation in that I get to roam around and taste the "local cuisine." I am cat-sitting about 15 minutes from where I grew up so this is by no means exotic BUT this 'hood does have the best, freshest bagels I've had in Queens, a health food store (they were hiring when I stopped by today!) and a closer proximity to Trader Joes. These things all together give me a belly ache. Well, those things and my lack of self control.
I got up in the morning and got some bagels, some fruit, and non-dairy Tofutti cream cheese. I ate a cinnamon-raisin bagel with the cream cheese and a sliced banana, along with some water and coffee with soy milk that I brought from home in a pickle jar. This was enjoyed out on the fire escape! Do you see how easy it is for me to imagine this one day off is a vacation?! Outdoor eating! Crossword puzzle!

Check out the view:

I piddled around the house, somehow managing to eat another whole bagel.
I left to run some errands and blahdy blah, came home and ate lunch on guess what, another bagel. How have I not exploded at this point, you wonder?
Who knows. Lunch was an onion bagel with more fake cream cheese, lettuce, avocado, and tomato with a little black pepper.

It was tasty, but I was probably most concerned that it all just fit in my face. Ugh.
Read, roamed, did some onliney stuff and decided it was time for dinner.
This meal was a LITTLE more constrained, necessarily so. I picked up some raw vegetable medley from Trader Joe's and ate cauliflower, broccoli, and baby carrots with chipotle hummus and some Saltines (which I don't even like).

Then glommed way, way too many of these (delicious) gum drops while reading Jimmy Corrigan. It's good.

G sent me an article about drinking and health which made me thirsty but I do NOT think my body could handle any alcohol right now. I really sicken myself sometimes. Sorry you all had to witness this. Ahh...check out the view?

Any guilty eats lately? Ones that lasted entire days? No? Just me? Oh.


  1. once my mom had gotten a whole dozen and a half bagels and me and my brother and a friend ate most of it while playing video games. she came home later and saw there were only a few bagels left and she was all like "Where did all the bagels go? were you just eating them like potato chips?" i said yeah, and then got a really bad stomach ache and now keep in mind that i should limit myself to one bagel a day. in short, i'm really impressed that you ate three whole bagels and i hope one of them wasn't supposed to be for me, because i want that.

  2. Don't be impressed at my gluttony; be impressed that I actually saved three for you!

  3. Cream cheese and banana?! That's a new one on me. Why have I never thought of that. Where's a pic of the cat?

    I'm very excited about the drinking and health article.
