It's 2:16 in the morning, and I can't sleep.

It's unfortunate. I have a 16 hour day planned tomorrow. Practicum in the morning, clinicals till 9:30 in the evening. My day starts at 5:34 a.m. and here I am, lying in bed, wasting precious sleep-time.

It's occasions like this when I start thinking deep, "meaningful" thoughts to myself, like "Where am I going in life?", "Why am I here?", or definitely the most pressing of all, "Why is hell is there no effin' turkey in this house?"

That's right, it's the wee hours of the morning and I'm craving deli meats. The only place that offers them that's open right now is Walmart. Maybe I'll drive to Walmart. I am would only take 45 minutes...

This actually happens quite often. I'll go on a two-three week streak where I only want one particular food item. Recently it's been Rice Krispies (see this post), and before that it was artichokes. I never know what brings these cravings on, and I never know when they're going to switch on me. I've made the mistake of packing the fridge with fresh spinach only to have most of it go bad because I woke up the next day craving garbanzo beans instead. Oh the humanity.

So faithful followers I wish I had a more useful pearl of wisdom to share with you all right now, but unfortunately I don't have the time. You see, I just have to get to Walmart.

What are your cravings?



  1. Hi Marlee!

    I crave on fried chicken and french fries when my menstruation is coming..maybe yours too.^^
