A few things I’m thinking about tonight before bed:
1. I want to go to church again. I was going to go tomorrow, but seeing as to how it’s 4:20 a.m. as I type this … well, simply, that ain’t happenin’. But there is a church I’ve found that I want to join. It’s the big one in my area, and it’s where all the young people go, and it’s always good to be around young people of your nationality.
2. I want to start work on “Randy’s Cookbook.” It’s not really a cookbook per se — more like a compilation of health advice, nutrition requirements, and some easy, healthy recipes. I’m making this for my friend Randy, who doesn’t know how to cook but would stop eating junk if he could or knew what to make. He told me this, and I offered to give him a few easy recipe ideas. “You’d have to show me how to do it too, though,” he insisted. No problem. I love that stuff. But without his knowing, I’m taking it a step further and expanding it into a little healthy cooking guide. I spent much of my day reading up and thinking about. (By the way, did you know that canned tomatoes are bad for you because their acidity causes the BPA to leak from the lining of the can? So experts recommend you use the boxed kind for recipes that call for canned tomatoes or to try to replace canned tomatoes with pasta sauce from glass jars, instead.)
3. What I ate today.

My previous months’ health magazines are turning over in their graves.
