I’ve been trying to integrate one new life hack into my life every week. Last week I tried the tape-over-fingernail-clippers hack, which worked amazing. This morning I tried the plastic bottle over plastic bag hack, and it worked awesome as well! At first, I just did it over a bulk bag of Cheerios, but this morning I opened a bag that really needed something like this. So I put the tie back on the Cheerios (only have one plastic bottle for now) and put it on the bag of frozen berries instead. I was a little worried it wouldn’t fit right because the bag is much thicker, but it worked! Below are the steps in how to do it.

Maybe it’s not a big deal to most of you, but one thing I love about Moscow is that I can bike to the grocery store, stuff my backpack full of food and make it back home in about the same time it takes to drive in a car. Gotta love bike friendly roads!
I’m not usually one to post photos of food, but I had to brag — Huckleberry & Strawberry Oatmeal
Secondly, this is healthy oatmeal — not the little packet kind. And these organic, pesticide-free berries came from the Moscow Farmer’s Market from last Saturday.
Ok. Enough blogging — time to eat!
Apparently it’s National Hamburger Day… as if Americans need more reason to eat more fattening foods.
Secondly, how do these “holidays” even come about?
Am I the only one or do other people hate soy sauce too?
I can’t stand dipping my sushi in it. I feel it ruins the taste. Everyone I’ve ever eaten sushi with thinks I’m weird, but oh well. I like to enjoy the true taste of sushi without it.
Eating some leftover sushi from lunch today, but forgot to put some chopsticks in the to-go box… it’s just not the same with a fork.
Hmm… where is my wasabi?
Oh there you are!
WOO! Glad I caught that before I forked that whole piece into my mouth. I would have been crying for the rest of the night!
Yes! I’ve been pronouncing it correctly all along!
Jif, the popular peanut butter company, has finally weighed in on the debate about how to pronounce GIF:
— Jif® Peanut Butter (@Jif)
""Jif’s tweet came less than a day after the creator of the Graphics Interchange Format (ie GIF) revealed that GIF is actually pronounced “Jif.”
"It’s pronounced JIF, not GIF." ~ Steve Wilhite, the father of GIFs. Well that’s settled. #Webbys— Brian A. Hernandez (@BAHjournalist)
In other (very random) news… I recently made a bunch of sandwiches for a roadtrip using the “Reduced Fat” Jif and was hardly able to force it down — and I eat anything. Needless to say, the rest of the sandwiches went to waste. Sad really.
So BLTs with no Ts… interesting supper.
Vegetarians, if you love animals so much, why do you keep eating all of their food?
