Something like that is the title of one of the threads in one of my teams. Today, I started to post what my favorite bite of food was today. But...I couldn't think of anything that was my favorite.
How wrong is that? How incredibly mindless did I have to be today to not really enjoy or savor ANYTHING I ate today? I ate a lot and even had some cookies. I do remember eating lunch and NOT enjoying it. There was nothing wrong with it (chicken and brocolli) and I liked it enough to pack it for lunch. BUT, I've had chicken for the last four days straight, twice a day for two of those days. I was sick of chicken!!
Tomorrow, I'm going to do two things. One - have no more than one serving of any one food (except veggies). Juniaatrome's idea, thank you!! Second, I'm going to pay attention to what I eat. I'm going to have something to post on that thread, dang it!!

know that I am always cold. Well, almost always. I'm warm when I sleep and I'm warm right now (just took a shower) and I'm warm when I'm sitting outside in the sunshine...as long as the temperature is at least 75. Preferably warmer. I prefer 100 to 60.
Here's some irony for you. My truck has a kick-a$$ air conditioner and a marginal heater. My DH's truck has a good air conditioner and the best heater ever! Yes, he is always too warm. Always. (okay, almost always)
As I type, I can tell that I'm warm. Besides the obvious, I mean! LOL! The blood veins (or are they arteries?) on the back of my hands are puffy and stand up on the hand. Not puffy like call-the-doctor-her-hand-is-going-to-explo
de puffy. Just prominent. When I'm cold, the veins/arteries/blood pathways do not stick up at all. They're still visible, but they have obviously retreated to the relative warmth of the inside of my body.
I shared this observation with my DH and my DD when we were at breakfast this weekend. DH decided that I was wrong. I had drunk caffeine, thus restricting the blood flow and causing the veins to shrink. Being cold had nothing to do with. I mean, the cold is all in my head after all.
Well...I'm drinking caffeine right now, blood vessels are constricted but those veins are big and pretty!! Take that! LOL!
Here's a picture. Enjoy the wonder that is my hand.

I didn't. I still don't know what it means. But, I have an app on my phone that lets me play Scrabble with friends or with random opponents. One of the games I played, my opponent played the word "qi." This program does not let you play non-words, so it must be a word, right?
Tonight, I was playing another game against someone else. She swapped out the Q, knowing that I would get it. Luckily, there was an "i" on the board and I was able to play "qi" And on a triple letter square! Can you say 31 points for playing one letter! That opponent has now added that word to her memory banks as well. No, we don't know what it means. Does it matter? It's worth 31 points! LOL!

In my head only! LOL! During our meeting today (at work), I noticed folks saying things that they normally wouldn't. One of the guys used the word less instead of fewer. There were a couple of other examples that I noticed at the time, but can't think of now. And I corrected them...in my mind.
I really think that the only reason that I even noticed was that I was really bored and needed something to keep me awake. That and I'm terribly judgemental! LOL!
Of course, I did not make any such errors. At least, none that I heard! Besides, I didn't say much. I was an observer. tee hee!

My daughter and I walked about 2.5 miles (round trip) to our local Family Dollar store. I wanted new sunglasses (mine were literally falling apart!) and I figured she'd be up to walking if that meant she could shop. I was right, by the way!
About halfway there, I realized that I was walking on the side of the sidewalk closest to the street. And I had been the entire way. We crossed streets and changed directions, but I was always on the side nearest the cars. I'm sure that I did it on purpose. My reasoning (had I had any conscious reasoning) is that if a car should swerve and hit someone, the car would hit me first and not my daughter. Paranoid? Maybe (again, if I was consciously thinking about it!) Protective. Heck yes! After I realized what I was doing, do you think I changed? Well, NO!! I was just more conscious (there's that word again!) of my actions.
So, back to the question - Instinct or Learned Behavior? Maybe a little of both? Either way, it was not needed on this particular trip. No car swerved, jumped or otherwise drove into us, or even anywhere near us. But the next time we go walking, I'll do it again!
