I've spent most of the weekend sleeping, since I've found a cocktail to help control my allergies, but it does me the favor in return of dehydrating me and knocking me out. Right now I want to go back to bed and nap, but I know that it would be better if I headed into the office to figure out what I need to do for the class visits I'm scheduled for tomorrow. Four of them. Oi!

I could take a leeettle nap, but I suspect that would turn into a "omg, it's 4pm already!" thing, since that's what I've been doing while on this stuff. I keep wondering how much a person can really sleep (at least when I'm not depressed, that is). It was a little chilly out this morning, though, so I'm hoping that the weather will turn and I can stop taking these drugs that put me into a coma.

Posted a new chapter of one WiP and have a decent start on the next. One might hope for the fic to be done soonish, so I can start in on the sequel. :P

Must write happy ending! NAO.

Two other things. There's this Trident commercial where a little girl is putting makeup on her little brother, and when her mom comes in to ask them what they're doing, and the girl says they're fighting cavities. The boy turns around with LOTS of makeup on, and he's grinning like this is the best game ever! And mom's like, LOL! Kids. Chew your gum :D

Two: I got some blueberry muffins… I need to start eating more blueberries. Apparently, if they don't turn you into one of them, they're good for you.

Bread Rage

I have one more mpreg fic for Mpreg Day, if I can get it finished. I was supposed to be working on it, but I got sick this afternoon and took a pill, and that made me conk out. So.

I'm going to rant about bread instead.

I have bread rage. It's not that I have a problem with bread inherently, although the moment it becomes soggy, I have Texture Issues. During my late twenties I've been trying to make the switch to wheat/whole grain breads because of the additional fiber and let's face it, protein to be had in whole grains. That and a lower amount of sugar pumped into it.

(Oddly, Pringles now has a 'whole grain' chip, that… just looks like it has whole grains on it. It's still made with regular flour. Beware.)

(Also, practically everything in the deli has high fructose corn syrup in it. Even potato salad. Even deviled eggs.)

Moving on. So I tried a lot of different brands, and I couldn't get into any of them. It was hard. Eventually I got into eating wheat bread, but it wasn't a great match and I kept letting it go bad.

Well, lo, lactose intolerance came, and with it came a desire to eliminate dairy from wherever I possibly could. Through looking at the backs of various breads, I found Sara Lee Hearty and Delicious Oat. They had other varieties, but there was no milk or milk fat in the oat, or butter, surprisingly. I gave it a try, and it was delicious. It was good for a sandwich or just for toast for breakfast. (I got a toaster for this very reason.)

But I haven't been able to find it in stores since the beginning of the summer, and I am beginning to lose hope. Now I'm looking at ingredient listings again and they all frustratingly have dairy in them (or aren't actually whole grain). I even poked at some of the expensive breads at the specialty healthfood store, and many of those had dairy in them, even if they were made with rice flour or something. I'm going to have to go on an extended hunt, and that makes me grumpy. Because I had the perfect bread, but it is now gone. :(

I love French and Italian bread, of course, but that's only for special occasions or when I have Squicky Tummy.

Woe is I.

What's your favorite bread?
