A Day of Technological Difficulties {and a Day of Eats}

Two songs described my day yesterday: Technologic by Daft Punk and Wobble Baby by V.I.C. (I can explain).

“Technologic” because it seemed like my day revolved around resolving technology issues.

1) Buying a new graphing calculator.

2) Bringing my laptop to the Apple Store to get it diagnosed (it froze and then wouldn’t start up again).

3) Figuring out a small problem with our TV.

#1 and #3 are all fixed now, but #2 was a little more frustrating. I took it to the Apple Store, and it turns out that my laptop’s hard drive is messed up, so I have to get a new one.

I lost all the information on my current hard drive, which is not terrible since I backed it up maybe a month or two ago, but I still lost a bunch of photos and my longggg, organized notes for tour guiding that I had worked on all winter break.

Bummer.

That’s where “Wobble Baby” comes in. There is a part in the song where he sings, “make ’em back it up, make ’em back it up.” So that was stuck in my head all day when I realized that I should back up my computer more often.

Despite my disappointment in not backing it up (my computer and my booty), it was still a great and productive day overall. My eats were delicious as a bonus!

Breakfast

I already showed you at the end of yesterday’s post, but my morning meal was this wonderful banana overnight oatmeal smoothie. The recipe is here!

Plus some pomegranate arils eaten straight up with a spoon.

Lunch

Back to my staple foods: spinach salad dressed in olive oil, honey, and pepper + avocado toast + two sunny eggs.

I put the eggs on top of the avocado toast so that the yolk could run onto the toast like a delightful waterfall of liquid sunshine.

I apologize if you are not a supporter of #yolkporn.

Snacks

We picked up this new Lemon Twist flavor of Sabra hummus, and it is rocking my world. I’m dipping ALL the veggies in it!

I also had some Korean pear slices that my mom cut up, but no photographical evidence lives.

Dinner

Since I ate the equivalent of one head of broccoli with that hummus, I only had room for one of mom’s coconut curry chicken drumsticks with bamboo shoots. Taaaaaaasty!

Dessert

I was also saving room for dessert 😀

Daliza came over (!) and we shared a couple mug cakes that I made — Kylie’s pumpkin mug muffins (makes two, so Pop ate one) and two of Amanda’s banana bread mug cakes (one for mom).

The perfect, quick treat for a frigid night indeed.

We ended it all with some more pomegranate!

I also finally let Daliza open my birthday gift for her that was delivered to her house two weeks ago. I didn’t let her open it until I got home from Florida because I wanted to be there for the live reaction!

It’s a personalized pillow with some famous Russell Crowe movie quotes! (Daliza essentially likes to think of herself as Mrs. Crowe.) Can you name some of those movies?

Halfway through the week, folks! I’m cheering for you!

So tell me:

Have you had any technological issues lately?

What is your favorite dip? 

Hummus and spinach artichoke dip are my favorites!

Which actor’s/actress’ quotes would you put on a pillow? 

Maybe Anne Hathaway (to be honest, just thinking of The Princess Diaries.)
