Running log: Did 30…

Running log:

Did 30 sit-ups.

Yes, I'm aware that sit-ups don't technically count as running. It snowed heavily last night! What the heck is it doing snowing? I was supposed to start this running thing in spring, not winter. And my cough is worse, so I decided today was indoor exercise day. May I note that I truly despise sit-ups? I figure if I make myself do sit-ups every day I don't run, then I'll run a lot more often. We'll see if it works.

Had a nice evening yesterday; Marcia came by for dinner and a movie (Marcia of Paul and Marcia, Paul being out of town at a conference 'til Sunday). I made curry and we watched Run, Lola, Run, which was a lot of fun. I kinda wish I'd seen it on a big screen -- normally I don't much care, but in this particular case...oh well.

It's movie-watching day, I think. Feeling sickly, and I rented a whole bunch of movies yesterday. So by Sunday I need to watch Runaway Bride (I know, goofy film, but I like her, so there), Mystery Men (mainly for darling Janeane), and Harold and Maude (out of the list of movies that Jed is shocked I haven't seen yet). Not sure which ones I'll watch today -- I'll probably limit it to two, since I do have to get some work done today.

Marcia loved the coconut sambol from dinner, so I append the recipe below. Have a good day, munchkins!

Coconut Sambol

  • 1 c. dessicated coconut (do NOT use sweetened kind commonly sold in baking aisle -- you may need to go to an Asian food store to find this)
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 2 t. paprika
  • 2-3 T. lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 3 T. hot milk
  1. Combine coconut, salt, chili powder, paprika in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with lemon juice, onion and milk.
  3. Mix well with your hands, rubbing ingredients together so that the coconut is evenly moistened.
  4. Pile into small bowl and serve.
