Day 19: Celebrated “Popcorn Day”

I didn’t do anything all day (except lie in bed, and wonder how the people above me can vacuum a room for so long). It was tough to drag myself out of the apartment to go to my sister’s place across town. (And, the “warm” weather made me feel so incredibly guilty for staying inside all day.) But, I did it.

I left the apartment, I socialized, I ate the dinner she made me, and then I made stove-top popcorn in honor of “popcorn day.”

I knew about the day because of my benicebox list (I also got the kernels in my January box). Again, gotta love it.

Even though the dramatics seem worth it, hot oily kernels don’t feel good.2014-01-19 08.27.10That’s supposed to be a picture of my kernel-burn.2014-01-19 07.36.10 Tada!2014-01-19 07.38.26Yum.
