A Girl Who Doesn’t Eat Birthday Cake, And Other Random Thoughts

Well here it is...my birthday, and the reason 9 and 17 are my favorite numbers.

Birthdays are good excuses to measure progress and set new goals I think, kind of like New Year's Eve only I'm the only one who's doing it today.  Unless you're a Virgo too, and in that case you're probably making your own thoughtful list, you independent, analytical, reliable, observant, perfectionst, you.  Happy Birthday to you.

There’s No Such Thing As Comfort Food?

Do you pack snacks for work?  I do.  Boring ones like gluten-free granola and crisp breads since I'm going without wheat/gluten and soy for the time being.  The kind of snacks that makes you fellas' eyes roll!  But pizza would normally be my favorite comfort food.  Do you have one?  Mac and cheese?

Texas Has 14 of the Biggest High Schools in the U.S.

I graduated with 12 people in my high school class in Nebraska, so it's hard for me to comprehend a high school where there are three thousands students.  That's huge! Or maybe it's time to admit my little class of six boys and six girls was abnormally tiny.  I graduated at the top of my class, but I don't spend much time telling people I only had 11 people behind me.  Shh...don't tell!  And those that graduated in the top 50 percent were actually in the top six.  That' doesn't happen often.

Texas has some of the biggest high schools in the US, and some of those have more than four thousand students.

Starbucks is already out with the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and I've already had one or three.  There's something else coming out by the end of the month that I wouldn't imagine needing the pumpkin spice flavor and it doesn't on a normal day.  But it might be tasty.
