Hit by a Pitch

I’ve been too lazy to write a real update, so here is a list of random shit I am enjoying:

  • Fried bananas. I’m serious. Melt a little butter in a pan over medium to low heat and then add a sliced or quartered banana. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cook for a couple minutes until it’s delicious. Dump this over vanilla ice cream and add a little chocolate syrup. The warm bananas make the ice cream a little melty and OMG it is so good.
  • Ice cubes. I could eat all the ice cubes in the entire world right now.
  • Rubber. I’ve always loved the smell of rubber, but now I’m craving it. Our soon-ish-to-be baby’s room currently is housing a newly assembled jogging stroller and sometimes I go in there just to smell the tires. Bliss. According to Google, I’m not the only pregnant person to experience such a craving. I’m not anemic, so I don’t think it’s a big deal.
  • Tea tree oil. I’m not using essential oil because I’m not sure it’s safe during pregnancy, but I have this tea tree oil lip balm (from Desert Essence) and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t the most awesome smelling stuff in the entire world.
  • Carrying the min pin around in a baby sling. I got a Maya wrap last week and Sadie fits right in there and seems to enjoy it. I’d like to see more dogwearing in mainstream society.
  • Brightly colored sneakers that don’t necessarily have anything to do with the rest of what you’re wearing. We went to Monolith last night (well, we went Saturday too but only lasted an hour in the crappy-ass weather so I’m not counting it) and I have to admit the whole thing made me feel a little old. It’s not necessarily the best idea in the world to go to a big concert festival thing at Red Rocks while 31+ weeks pregnant, but it ended up being fun and I was bad ass enough to decline the shuttle ride up from the parking lot in favor of walking up the ramp and then climbing the stairs. Anyway, part of the “feeling old” thing came from sitting there realizing that I don’t really understand what Kids These Days are wearing. However, I did approve of most of the sneakers. I’ve always been really into funky sneakers (also, I understand the difference between funky sneakers and functional sneakers, a distinction lost on dorky parent types who wear running shoes to Monolith; you all as my witness, I will not fall into this trap) and now am on the lookout for a new pair, despite the warnings that you shouldn’t buy shoes while pregnant because you’re just going to get monster feet because, at least so far, my feet are still their normal size. For the record, I’m still not on board with brown boots with black pants, bad 80s shit, and fake glasses. What was up with the fake glasses? Not cool, people.
  • Avoiding drunk people. Seriously guys? It’s not fun being the only sober person in a big crowd of wasted-ass people. It’s just not. It’s especially not fun when you really, really like beer and you “can’t” (“can’t” in quotes because technically you can do whatever you want) have a few while at a concert/sporting event/wherever. It’s also not the most fun thing in the world to be around a million people who are all smoking dank shit and would love to share it with you but no. Anyway, I hope to avoid all drunk people for the next 8-ish weeks. It won’t be all fun and games after that, either, but at least breastfeeding is more alcohol-friendly than pregnancy.
  • Looking forward to the Big Beers Festival. Because I’m going to miss the Great American Beer Festival this year, which pains me more than I can express in words, I’m trying to make myself feel better by looking forward to the Big Beers Festival in January. This is a good one — lots of IPAs.
  • My fantasy football team. I should win this week, as long as LT doesn’t score a million points.
