Possible Tragedy! :( February 6th

My beloved cell phone, the same one that I've had since November 2005, the same one that I use to take all my pictures with, somehow got mixed up in the laundry today, so it ended up going in the washer! :( So now it's drying out in a bag of rice... which is a trick that's supposed to help dry out the phone so I could still use it! So keep your fingers crossed!! I LOVE that phone and I really don't want to have to get another one. And today's mishap was just an extra kick while I was down, being that I now have a head cold too! :( I was able to at least catch up with an old friend from High School yesterday and have dinner at Chat 'n Chew before I started to feel really sick. I've got all my usual herbal meds, so I hope I start feeling better soon. I swear, I don't think I've felt good for more than 3 consecutive days in the past 3 months!

Anyways, here are some of the pictures I was able to upload before the fiasco with my phone! Let's hope that these aren't the last pictures from my phone! :(


A Trader Joe's chocolate lava cake with whipped cream. These lava cakes are AMAZING! Better than what you'd get in a restaurant, only WAY cheaper!

Another lunch at Wild Ginger... and this time I tried a new item off their menu!

First I had their awesome spring rolls... they came with a little garnish on them for some reason, but they were the same great-tasting spring rolls that I always get when I go there.

Instead of my usual steamed veggie dumplings, I decided to try their shumai, which are japanese-style spinach dumplings. They came with similar sauce, and were just as good as the dumplings I always get... in fact I almost prefer these better!

And of course, my beloved pineapple fried rice! This is truly my favorite thing to eat, and it's amazingly good for you too!

I love to finish off this meal with a vegan chocolate chip cookie from Whole Foods (warmed up in the microwave, of course!).

Luckily I was able to get some really cute pics of Peanut in the laundry (before the phone fiasco). Here they are!





That's all for today, wish me luck!

P.S. ~ Does anyone know what happened to the Peanut Butter Bliss blog again?! :(

Oh no! Hopefully your phone works soon! You have had that phone since 2005?! I go through a phone a year at least! Very impressive that it's lasted this long!

I did the same thing with my cell phone - take the battery out and let it dry for about 2 to 3 days and it should be working fine.

Ahh I seriously would have cried if I accidentally put my cell phone in the washer machine. Glad the rice came to the rescue!
