Oh oh oh. I wish it was Sunday. Seriously. I absolutely loathe Mondays. For some reason I always feel like I'm forgetting something which makes me feel rushed and uncentered. Then my yoga was interrupted by my sister and husband, I thought I had wine for my dinner but didn't, and the sun went down before I could take pics of the food. Bring on Tuesday already! Ha ha.
This is the first Movie Monday and I am stoked about it because it's all about the vampyre. Remember when vampires were the most feared creatures of the night? Think really hard. Long ago, before vampires were reduced to playing dominating high school sweethearts who get their bling on in the sunlight. Yeah. There was this movie called Blade II, my favorite of the series. It has vampires killing vampires and so much kick assery, even Ryan Reynold's abs are jealous. Wesley Snipes as Blade is as healthy as it gets. That man just oozes bad assness out of his perfectly formed guns. And tonight's menu is brought to you by the letter "v" for Veganomicon. I'm basically killing two vamps with one stake, as the youth say. I busted out some recipes I had never made before. It was fangtastic! One too many vampire references? One. One reference. Two. Two reference. Two...a ha ha. Okay, I'm done.

Notes-This is the second day I've missed my fifth meal so I had to sit down and make a food schedule. Yes, I'm a little insane. I also think I may need to get some working out in before class in the mornings. Maybe. Getting up that early makes me cranky all day. I'm turning off my phone tomorrow when I work out either way.
Well, I got a date with my pillow and season 4 of Weeds. Good night, yo. Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky...
