I sell copies of my book every month, hallelujah. So where’s my $27.69 from last month’s sales? The price of *quinoa just went up and I need Halloween socks, a disposable rain bonnet, and some Limited Edition Pop Tarts.
Amazon was supposed to shoot this money over to my account. I wish they’d hurry up–it’s Pop Tarts LI-MI-TED Edition! By the time I get my money, the damn things won’t be in the supermarket anymore.
*For those of you who don’t give a shit, quinoa (pronounced: keen-wah) is a healthy ‘super-food’ that tastes like ass-crack. It costs a lot of money but I could probably grow it on my fire escape.
What’s the limited edition flavor? Just curious. =)
So glad you asked Stacie! It’s a box of 12 with packets of blueberry, strawberry, cherry — all frosted, and I think a packet of un-frosted strawberry or cherry maybe. But frosted I like the best 🙂 I eat them after quinoa and steamed vegetables to negate everything!
Especially during the munchies.
I don’t see the point of unfrosted Pop Tarts. And you have the right idea, Sandee–if you eat them after quinoa and steamed veggies, or with a diet soda, everything cancels each other out.
I knew we’d see eye to eye on Pop Tarts! And to me life generally doesn’t make sense, so I like to eat in a way that doesn’t make sense, it’s a statement on my reflection of the business of not making sense.
I am quite partial to the cinnamon frosted variety myself.. and yes frosted is the only way to go. Keen-wah? Gack…why would you put that in your mouth? 🙂
HA!…tastes like ass-crack. Brilliant.
Maybe I exaggerated but for all that money it should taste better than it does I say.
I like the quinoa. Sandee, you eat such healthy food. Oh, never mind the pop tarts. I hope you get them.
Those Pop Tarts are killer! I have to portion control myself around them because I’d have NO problem eating the whole box in a sitting — haha!
BWAHAHAHAHA You’re so hilarious! I didn’t know quinoa was pronounced like that. In Spanish, it is pronounced kee-noah
Quinoa is just weird all around!
I have been known to trip up people in the supermarket that try to cut in front of me as I reach for that box of Frosted Blueberry Pop-Tarts..I actually had to detox off them last year as I was eating them everyday and my lips were turning purple 🙂
You’re a woman after my own heart! Eating them everyday? At least you were able to enjoy your love affair with them on a regular basis.
maybe put the pop tarts on lay-away? lol
Careful your quinoa ordeal doesn’t get away from you – it could get ugly:
For real, yo! Ahahahahahaaa!! Trying to find a decent pinot noir! Cayenne, quinoa — ahahaha! Hip hop has evolved yo! Thanks Jessica this was hilarious — loved it!
Quinoa, it’s good for you, but yeah, no taste. But, tasteful people are buying your book! Yay! How about an audio version?
Great idea! I could read it in an Antonio Banderas voice — ahaha! Muy sexy!
Isn’t it amazing that we’ll willing eat things that taste like ass-crack?
I guess I’ll eat anything that they say is good for you — even if it makes me cringe. Actually the way I make quinoa is pretty good. It has such a flat taste that you could dress it up without any interference.
Yeah, I’ve like the quinoa salads I’ve tried. I just haven’t made any myself.
It’s so easy — I make a huge pot at the beginning of the week with sauteed onions, put some spices in there and some beans and tomato sauce and honey and eat it every day with steamed vegetables or a piece of fish — it’s good for me because I don’t have time to cook and really, I’m not a big fan of food though you could never tell by looking at me as I’m average weight. You’d think I’d be thinner — all I really like eating is cake and candy — but I’m good about rationing it since it’s like drugs to me.
Well, as I tell my boys, we wouldn’t fuel our gas tanks with soda, so we shouldn’t fuel our bodies with junk. Well, okay, a little junk is fine–I love my sweets–but you gotta have the good stuff, too.
That’s a good one Carrie — if you don’t mind I’d like to borrow this line to nag — I mean to remind my sister about the importance of feeding my nephews clean foods. My line has always been that I like to put premium gas in my car. I do believe in a balance however, meaning I don’t want to be too extreme either way.
Borrow away (I used to lecture to my patients with that one, too). And you are doing it perfectly. Moderation is key. I admire people who can give up sugar, but for me, life is too short for extreme deprivation.
Extreme deprivation is stress inducing if you ask me 🙂
The only time I can get away with buying Pop Tarts is my birthday, since my husband is convinced that they will give me cancer. Yet he lets me buy quinoa all the time. Oppression.
Hehehehe — “Oppression.”
Least he’s got consciousness about what bad food is — it amazes me sometimes the way people think it’s okay to eat crap on a regular basis.
You know, quinoa tastes just fine when it’s mixed in with some couscous or something.
I actually like it the way I make it. It just should taste better because it costs so much 🙂
Ugh, I hate quinoa. I have tried it SO many ways and it just never tastes delicious.
I’ve heard a lot of people say this about it. I think the taste is rather bland.
I did a whole post about my hatred of quinoa. I’ll have to reblog it for you. Limited edition
pOp Tarts? Sounds like you’re out of the financial woods if you can afford that luxury. Ha!
I remember that post! I think of you when I write about quinoa because of it 🙂
Don’t eat stuff that tastes like ass crack.
Geeze, Sandee, that should be obvious!
