This bento was actually prepared for and consumed on a Saturday! As I mentioned before but didn't really go into details, I have class on Saturdays from 9am to 3pm. That's two 3 hour classes in a row - I thought it wouldn't be that bad, but just the thought is making me antsy in my seat, hah! There's only 5 minutes between classes, technically, but my 9am class professor so far has been letting us out 20 minutes early, instead of breaking in the middle for 20 minutes. That's fine by me - it's a little early at 11:30am for me to want to eat lunch, but we'll see as time goes on, since my 12pm professor said she'll most likely break for 20 minutes or so around 1:30ish, which is much more in line with my normal lunch-eating-time (when I'm at work, that is; weekends are usually anything goes).
Class is... interesting. I'm a little terrified of one of my professors (on the off chance that somehow, this blog finds its way to large scale attention, I think I'll refrain from giving any identifying details!) - but on the bright side, I'm learning a lot and actually somewhat excited and interested in a subject that previously was my most detested. So, we'll see how that goes. I have a good suspicion that my 4.0 from last semester will be destroyed, but hopefully, not too much. We shall see...
On another note... HB and I hung out after a weekend of me staying in and studying; I really should have stayed in and studied some more, but BF was all "You deserve it, go out and have fun," and well, it was GORGEOUS out, and I technically do have some extra time to study since there's no class this Saturday. So hopefully I'll be able to study throughout the week (this is going to be a very busy week for me! what with classes and then two events I wouldn't miss for the world... hmm!) and get all caught up so that I can go out this weekend as well - I didn't even see my BF this past weekend!!! (Well, in his defense, he was away. Haha.)
Phew, I'm excellent at complaining and going straight to whining about not having time, huh?
In any case, the above? HB and I stopped by the Red Hook Ikea & Fairway after a food adventure, and inside Fairway was a lobster tank. $9.99/lb for lobster - a dramatic increase from what I'd paid - but DUDE THESE LOBSTERS WERE HUGE! Look how big that one next to HB's fist is - no, it's not a picture of her trying to punch it, it's for size. I would say that lobster was easily 10 or more pounds... dayammmmmmm.
I went home without it.
Hahahahaha what, did you think I really bought that sucker? Not even sure I could fit it in my biggest pot!!! And I was NOT going to lug it home, as it was, it was annoying lugging home the 40 ounces of spinach I bought for $1.99. Yeah, I don't know why it was so cheap, either. I'm not going to complain about it though.
One last fun thing! Foodbuzz is holding their first annual Foodbuzz food blog awards! You can nominate any food blog you like, and I suggest you do - there are a ton of fun categories!!! The food blog you nominate doesn't have to be a Foodbuzz blog, so go and nominate... and in a few weeks, I'll remind you to go and vote :)
Think outside the lunchbox~!!!
