Sushi, Shopping and Shoes

Good day today, despite the lack of sleep I got.  It started off with "one of those" mornings; I woke up at 06:30 to use the washroom, but felt a little awake and debated staying up.  I thought it was too damn early to get up, but I knew if I went back to sleep I'd have trouble doing so and would feel worse for it.  Well guess what, I felt worse for it.  I wish I'd stayed up.  So I was dragging my ass most of the day.

Did some shopping.  Started day with getting a new pair of scrub pants for work and incidentally at the same place found a pair of casual pants (very affordable) and a couple t-shirts (also affordable).  Stopped at a sushi place (my first time, my friend is a regular) and was pleasantly surprised.  I didn't get too adventurous; I got  cucumber (2) and avacado (1) hand wraps (picture items stuff with rice in sushi paper shaped like a waffle cone), teriyaki chicken and I forget what sushi I had, vegetable-something.  We were very full and I wasn't hungry until 6 hrs later!!  That's amazing!  It really kept my blood sugar up.  Odd though, that we each experienced headaches after said lunch.  Would anyone venture a guess as to why?

We went to the mall after and I bought a couple items at LUSH for a treat (a couple of bath bombs and a variety box with a few things in it I tried tonight in my shower including a solid shampoo bar and nice stuff for my face and skin.  I'm nice and soft now).  Also had shoes in mind (something good to walk to work in everyday).  I instantly found these Columbia shoes (in the light grey/begonia colour) and although I did more looking around, I found nothing comparable for what I wanted (function), and price, really.

It was a good day.  Lots of walking.  Went to Mass after.  Came home.  Made stir-fry.  Watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (bought it previously viewed yesterday) to make sure there were no defects in it.  I can't wait for the next Harry Potter :)  Now my eyes are having a problem staying open, so I shall bid you adieu.  I hope you're having a good weekend!

Your headaches could have been caused by monosodium glutamate. Many Asian restaurants add this to flavour their food. It gives me a headache, too. And makes me thirsty.

Coincidentally enough, I watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Golden Phoenix on TV last night!

Yeah, someone else suggested it could have been the MSG. I forgot how much my body disliked it until she mentioned it.

Oooh.. that's a good Harry Potter :)
