Check it, because I wrecked it

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2011 by poojaland

Aw yeah, it’s a gold-star day for me — I scored 418 points in Scrabble, against Norm1 the computer! This was done on my Scrabble iPhone app (the official Scrabble app), which is my go-to time-waster when there’s any time to be wasted. This score is my highest ever, kicked off with my first word, “Higgles,”which garnered me a huge points bonus as it took all my letters to build.

It’s all about the little things, my friends.

New favorite nutritional shortcut

Posted in Uncategorized on May 2, 2011 by poojaland

Being that I’m not so good at eating well — and don’t have the sophisticated palate that really enjoys healthy food — I’m always looking for nutritional shortcuts. I.e., how can I get the benefits of eating fish without eating fish? (Here’s my solution.) Last year, I happily discovered V8 Fusion. It’s 100% juice with no sugar added, and each serving contains one full serving of vegetables and one full serving of fruits. As a bonus, you can even now buy the cans at Costco! The Costco pack has two flavors, Pomegranate Blueberry and Strawberry Banana. Good stuff!

I know you’re ideally supposed to have more than one serving each of veggies and fruits per day, so I do eat additional fresh stuff here and there (and I don’t drink a can of this every day). Still, it’s a great supplement to my otherwise relatively unhealthy “diet.”
