Hero Fuel (can I copyright that?) :)

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): The Wisdom of the Snow by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.


Every superhero has them. Just like having a sidekick, all us heroes have an evil nemesis. Think of this as my kryptonite. Well, actually, books are my all-too-real kryptonite, but that is a different story entirely. :D No, actually, this is to me what spinach is to Popeye. That's what this is! Bwahaha, that's a much better example. Turn those tables around. It's not my nemesis. It is my lifeblood - my version of coffee in the morning.



Yep, it's Carnation Instant Breakfast. 2X the protein of an egg, 2X the calcium of yogurt, and complete with more nutrients and minerals than I can pronounce. ^_^ And of course it helps that for all intents and purposes, it is chocolate milk. Yum.

This is my fuel when the going gets tough in my writing. When the going gets tough, the tough get Instant Breakfast.*


*note: when I was in DC on my internship at the Smithsonian, I could not find Instant Breakfast anywhere. Not at Peapod, or Safeway, or Target or any other of the stores where I searched for it. I was freaking out. Finally I found it at one store. Talk about a reunion. I was hugging the thing in the middle of the store, almost spinning it around like Sound of Music or something. I wonder if Popeye ever had withdrawals like that...
