Mood: Pretty good
Listening to: Ode to joy
It has come to my attention that I haven’t really tried new things lately, or if I have I haven’t written about it. And that wasn’t the plan, was it. Nope, I was going to be good; try new things and then write about them.
Well, I’ve finally tried new things and I’m going to write about them.
On Monday my awesome step-daughter and I were in Sweden. We were supposed to go to the other Swede, but because of time restrictions, we had to go to the closest one. And that means no Pho for me.. yet.
BUT…while we were in Sweden we found some müsli bars. I guess that’s as close as I can get in the description… it has grain in them, but which ones, I have no idea. And I’m too lazy right now to translate. I don’t know. If I should venture a guess there was wheat in them… Anywho; they were called Corny. And they were delicious. I think there were four different flavours: Coconut, dark chocolate, chocolate and choco-banana.
Since I’m not that fond of coconut, I tried the other three.
OK, there was supposed to be a picture here, but photobucket is being a bitch and won’t show me pictures I just uploaded from my phone.. so SCREW YOU!!!!! (to photobucket)
HA! IT WORKED!!! Disregard the above statement!
Corny Dark Chocolate: There is a deep taste of dark chocolate and a slight hint of honey. It’s really good; great for when you’re on the go and need a quick snack.
Corny Chocolate: It’s still a müsli bar, this with the taste of chocolate and honey. You can better see what’s in the bar; like corn flakes. It’s very good and the honey is more prominent in this one.
Corny choco-banana: When I opened the bar it smelled like banana. It tastes strongly of it, too. Honey is not so strong, with a slight hint of chocolate. Very well balanced. Very good!!
Now, I’m not saying that these are healthy. I’m just saying that it’s a good snack once in a while…or if you’re at work and need a boost. I recommend them all, but of course if you want something better for you, then there’s always those icky trail mix bars with berries and disgusting raisins. But that’s just my opinion. I don’t like raisins. And I’m not going to dictate how you should live your life, I’m only writing about the new stuff I’m trying.
So, what else is new in Lene’s life?
She’s had her 38th birthday. oy vey.
And she finally got new loud speakers for her computer and they are AWESOME! She can finally not use ear phones or ear buds..when she’s home alone. She can finally enjoy music out loud and sing along like no one is listening… because well.. she’s alone.
And she got a new gaming mouse, which is also AWESOME!!! but very easy on the right mouse button. It’s very easy to click it, so to speak. I’m sure she’ll get the hang of it.
She’s also in the middle of vacation. She’s been really enjoying it so far, and been a good girl and helped build her father in law’s covered porch. It’s going to look so good when it’s all done. I can’t wait to see it.
She’s also had a visit from her dad again, and this time he brought his new girlfriend. A very lovely lady, and they spent most of the time talking about a lot of different stuff. (Music change: Tainted love – Soft Cell)
It seems that her parents, if I’m not mistaken, lived in the same house that my dad grew up in.
So, what did she, Lene, get for her birthday?
Money! Exactly what she wanted. With that money she got some stuff… like new pants, Captain Morgan spiced gold <3, sambuca, a grown-up colouring book and pens and that’s about it.
She also got hammered on her birthday, which was fun. That Sambuca, man.. it’s lethal. XD
Well, I guess that was it. Nothing else new under the sun.
Be utterly excellent to each other.
