I’m pretty sure that what I’m doing right now would qualify as BUI.


I joined Gina and the rest of the NYU girls tonight for a happy hour in honor of Gina paying off one of her many undergrad loans. (Congratulations, Gina!) I only had one (very strong) cosmo, but I took an allergy pill before I left to head up to the bar … where I proceeded to fall asleep more than once (which actually isn’t that unusual for me). Coming home, I came closer to missing my stop on the subway than ever before — I somehow fell into a deep sleep at the stop right before mine and didn’t even realize that the train had stopped again, even though my eyes had reopened by this point. And now I’m nodding off. But I’m going go try to get this out first!

Everything is business as usual over here (minus the stress! and plus some alcohol, apprently). For snacks during class, I had an Eggland’s Best pre-peeled hard boiled egg, 1/2 serving of Newman’s spelt pretzels, and 1/2 a chopped apple.


I did not end up turning my paper in at class today because I couldn’t access gmail to download and print it! Gmail clearly had it in for me. The professor said it was fine and I could turn it in at our last class next week even though it was really due today. She doesn’t do email, so she’d rather I just wait and do it in person. All that rushing for nothing! At least I don’t have to worry about it anymore.

During group advisement after class, I had the rest of my “Ruthie Soup” from Monday for lunch with 1/8 chopped avocado and homemade parm:


I also had two of my homemade raw macaroons πŸ™‚

And then we got to meet the new baby daughter (10 days old!!!) of one of the other girls in my program. Sooooo cute and perfect.

Snack/dinner when I got home was another portion of cauliflower mangu and my last carrot pudding cake. Do I see another batch in the near future?? I think so.


And my last mini chocolate birthday cupcake:


From there, it was up to Union Bar.

Infamous cosmo:


Cheesy spicy bar snack mix:


More snack mix:


I didn’t eat all of that specific basket. But I think I had enough big handfuls from several baskets to equal the contents of this one.

Then, Gina ordered loaded nachos because our heart health is at the forefront of her mind. I ate a lot:


I think the guacamole looks like ICING.

I also had another chocolate macaroom when I came home πŸ˜€

What has influenced YOU today?

Good night!

    Yum…ruthie soup!
    I hate allergy pills…or benadryl at least. I find it doesn’t help me sleep when I take them but it makes me hung over the next day.

    BUI? HAHAHA Great terminology!
    I gather you are allergic to alcohol? Oh man! That’s funny (but not so funny) about falling asleep in the subway- I would have done the same. haha

    It’s great you had such a wonderful evening! The guacamole does look like icing! πŸ™‚ and yay for cosmos! πŸ™‚

    Have a wonderful day!

    DAMN GURL you BUI all you want because your typing skillz are still a-okay! Hero, hero, hero!

    Those nachos look bosstastic! I think the guac icing will be a must for whatever mexicano food I make next!

    I just bought some PB puffins, almond milk, and sabra at the store so I was highly influenced by the pb puffins and almond milk for breakfast and I JUST KNOW the sabra will influence my luncheon! Hooray for new food!

    I’m going to vote “gross” on the guacamole frosting. I’m really picky about my guac and the fresher/more homemade, the better. That certainly doesn’t look like either! EWW (although who am I kidding, I’m sure it tasted great…especially after allergy meds and a cosmo!)

    I’m impressed you blogged at all, let alone under the influence! Makes everything a little more interesting though, doesn’t it? I’m such a lightweight because I hardly drink anymore, but I’m sure that one cosmo would have been plenty for me too…even without the interfering medicine!
