Are You Going to Finish That?

For the last 3 weeks or so, I’ve been hungry ALL THE TIME!  At first it was bazare, now it’s annoying.  I get hungry at the regular times a person would eat.  About 10 minutes or so after I finish eating I’m hungry again.  And I mean stomach growling, that’s all I can think about, if I don’t eat I just might die.  So I eat again.  And again…and again.  I thought up a list of all possibilites whether realistic or not:

1.  No, I’m not pregnant

2.  No, I do not have/going through “women’s issues”

3.  No, I do not have an exceptionally fast metabolism

4.  No, I’m not imagining that I’m eating when I’m really not

5.  No, I do not have tapeworms or parasites….dammit (just kidding, ew!)

6.  No, I’m not a vegan or what have you and therefore am eating foods of substance a la crap (fatty foods, carbs, etc)

7.  No, I’m not exercising like a mad women in my spare time…or at any time for that matter

I finally concluded that the only possible explanation is that somehow I genetically relate to bears in this area and must be gorging myself in preparation for hibernation.  Only I don’t get to hibernate through the winter, just eat through it.

Oh the weather outside is frightful…

Ok, maybe it isn’t frightful but I’m still not overly excited either. I don’t like snow. I don’t like to be cold or wet and combine it with trying to drive in this mess and for me it’s miserable. So why do I live in Utah? Good question and every winter I ask myself the same thing. This is my third one and hopefully my last (in this case the third time has not turned out to be a charm but rather a strike out). I suppose I should be happy that the snow has held out this long. Last year we had snow off and on starting toward the very end of October. They year before it rained everyday for 2 or 3 weeks again starting in October. I remember b/c that was when I decided to move out here. I have no idea why I didn’t wait until the new year and bypass that Utah winter. Anyway, so to have it wait until the first day of December is kind of nice. And since I technically don’t have to leave the apartment for two days, maybe it will be gone before I head to work Monday morning…aww happy thoughts. By the way, I haven’t figured out how to get my flickr pics on my blog posts so just take a look at the weather pics on the flickr bar to the side.
