I see we have a very synergistic and cooperative approach to doughnut consumption.  We will never end up in the situation where we have to fight over the last doughnut in a box :) 

 

Yes.  We can be friends and walk into the sunset eating doughnuts together.

I know the from church basements where you eat them because you’re starving from fasting so you can take communion.

The only exception to this is an old fashioned sour cream donut.  

 

I’ve never even heard of this. I’m more than a little dubious of a sour cream doughnut.  Perhaps I shall seek them out and find out for myself.

There aren't. Raised is the only real donut.

 

Our blind player really puts a crimp in my game buying.  Since they’re my only gaming outlet I don’t want to spend the money on something that we end up not being able to play.  I was tempted to buy some D&D figures, but my eyes are too old to paint anymore and I hate the mystery box aspect of the plastic figures.  I almost bought some dice just to be supportive, but I have way more dice than I need. 

 

I also didn’t spend any money at the bike shop next door.

If its any consolation I had to video myself doing the crossfit open workouts, and mang there is nothing quite as disturbing as seeing yourself sweaty in workout clothes (in bad florescent light) to make you want to sign up for lipsuction, and possibly a boob job.

 

These days you can get your liposuctioned fat injected into your big beautiful booty...

 

BTW I haven’t seen any derailleurss. Once you start looking for something the supply disappears.

Oh no! I really hope you get over this soon. No to little sleep is just ... bad.

Nice going on the shovelglove habit building, and not spending money! I guess Slothgirl did though ;)

We only have the one kind (yeast deep fried in oil) here in general. I'm learning new things, but luckily doughnuts are off our buy list as it doesn't work with Rocco's tummy.

 

It’s happened a lot. I can usually deal with it.

 

Thanks.  Slothgirl was at a birthday party and the house was a couple blocks away from the business node.  It was a pretty good afternoon. 

 

Doughnuts don’t work with my belly either, but they’re really hard to quit.

I just saw a picture of myself. Holy crap was this winter of my discontent hard on my body. I’m fat and slovenly. I won’t give TML or Rooks shit about the Hammer Race any more because I don’t look like someone who can finish it. 

 

I’m really ticked at myself for not taking care of myself. Which, honestly, is a big step up from not giving a fuck about it. Now I need to take another step and actually start doing something. 

 

Enough moaning...

 

Today I Shovelgloved. 

 

Hell, yeah! It's on!

 

CRAP!!! Multiquote messed up on me....OK.... I want to say to all you picky doughnut eaters (and da-yam there are a lot of you)...I love a good cake doughnut. I think they stand up better to coffee. But frankly I love any doughnut (hence the formation of Pastry Lovers Anonymous). I would love to devour all your rejected doughnuts!!!

 

And @DJtrippyT I know what you mean. After my years of lifeguarding and sun-worshipping, I'll see you liposuction and raise you botox ;-)

Every now and then someone will tell me there are doughnuts in the office. I always hurry down there only to find out they’re cake donuts. It’s enough to make a man cry. 

I googled and still don’t really understand the difference you’re talking about.  We only ever used to get jam doughnuts - mainly for parties when you’re little and you tie them to a washing line and have to try to eat them with your hands behind your back.  Dunkin donuts then arrived and people buy them for work - I think they look and smell revolting and have never had them - I have enough cravings for other junk that I don’t need to expand my repertoire.

People, I avoided three whole trays of free donuts and muffins this morning for a company meeting and then I come in here, right in the middle of my mid-afternoon crash...

 

For the love of all that's good and decent and fits my macros, y'all need to spoiler your food porn.

The same Egyptian baker who introduced me to the cruller also had amazing apple fritters

Sadly he has passed on due to to stomach cancer. He emigrated to the town where I went to college from Egypt after Nasser was assassinated. Rumors persisted that he was an executive chef for the late leader. He would stay up all night baking, then sell donuts to people on their way to the factories nearby. We would often do our Greek homework there. Just about the time we were parsing the verbs (an especially tedious part of the assignment), the crullers would be ready. I had an affinity for the chocolate covered ones. 

His coffee was also better than this world deserved.

When my siblings are I were growing up, we spent a lot of time making up our own games.  One was called "roadkill."   Basically, two kids stand across from each other on either side of the room (preferably in front of couches) and are "cars" and the third stands where they can run perpendicular to the other two.  That person is an animal (level one was a mouse).  On the count of three, everyone runs in a straight line.  If the animal gets hit by a car, they remain a mouse, but if they didn't, they go up a level.  The goal is for the mouse to become an elephant (because your could swing at the cars with your "trunk" (arms)).  Lots of hours spent trying to run over my little sister, but she loved it.

 

Sloth, glad you're finding ways to connect with your kids.  Woop woop pokemon!  Good luck getting your training in order!  You'll finish that race!!!!

That game sounds awesome. I don’t know what game the kids made up, but a few days ago Slothgirl ended up with a scrape covering most of her ribs and a bruise on half her back. I think Slothboy won.

 

The kids went to the library a couple of days ago and now they won’t play with me because the have a sack of unread books :( stupid books always ruining everything. 

 

 

Another shovelglove placeholder day. I was going to cardio today, but Mrs. Sloth has the plague (again) and I stayed home. I did, however, clean out the big rig.  So, so much garbage.  I think I filled up the shop vac. I also used the upholstery cleaner and got the vomit, cool aid, and chocolate malt that was all over the rear seats.  After the horse left that barn we implemented the no-liquids-but-water-in-the-van rule.

This gave me a strong irrational disgust for whoever made this abomination. Pumpkin is for feeding animals not for eating, and especially not for ruining a doughnut with.

This is why I come to this thread. 

 

Vomit, Kool-aid, and chocolate milk sounds like the worst combination of liquids ever. 

 

Hah. 

 

The vomit was mostly cleaned up when it was fresh, but it was below zero and I did a half-assed job, I don’t know how old the malt was, I just found out about it, and I’m still irritated about the Kool Aid. But it all came up. It’s nice to drive a car that doesn’t smell.

3/28/18 Wednesday 

 

it’s crazy at school with spring break just around the corner, but I’m weathering it better than I had been. “Better living through chemistry.”  Speaking of which, I’m still doing the sleep madness. I went off my ADHD meds to see if that helps. 

 

Mrs Sloth is very sick. She is talking about not going to Texas. Which is fine with me. I’d love to get south, but spending half my break driving is a dreary prospect. 

 

I got got in a full Shovelglove workout this morning. Gotta add in some flexibility and cardio next.

Good job getting in Shovelglove.
Sorry about the sleep and the plague in your house and the darned kids wanting to read rather than play.


Thanks, I’m starting to feel like me again. The sleep, or lack of, happens often enough that it isn’t really a big deal as long as it doesn’t go on too long.

Hopefully the plague won’t go any further, but I tend to catch everything. Probably because I’m chronically sleep deprived.

The kids have already worked through their big sack of books so I should be able to play Pokémon again tomorrow. I gave Slothgirl my old copy of A Wizard of Earthsea and printed in the middle was an ad for Kent cigarettes :)

Ooohh.  I hope you have a nice spring break however and wherever you spend it. 

 

Based on the quiet neighborhood, I think our school district must already be on break and enjoying the wonderful weather.  Seas of brown grass are becoming a welcome relief from the hills of white.
