    I've mentioned before that my school does not have a food service. This has been a good thing and a bad thing: When I remember to pack something good and healthy, I eat it joyfully because I'm starving by lunchtime and I'll eat whatever I've brought. When I'm not on it (more often than not, sadly), I'll hit 7-Eleven or (worse) the fast-food drive-through for breakfast AND lunch.

    I needed a new option for this school year. Then I remembered the bagel place. It's run by a real HBA family. The owners sent five kids through that school, three of them while I was there and one of them when I taught there (I directed her in my first two school plays); also, the mom of this great family was a school employee for about twenty years. So it's a family I know very well, and I've always tried to support their efforts, from the day they opened their store in Waimalu through today, at their current location on Sand Island Access Road.

    Anyway, not only are three bagels (breakfast, lunch, and, just in case, dinner) much, much cheaper than the drive-through, but I actually enjoy the food more. I will often bring a container of veggies to eat with the bagel at lunch, but I also have a jar of peanut butter and a bottle of honey in my desk for days when a plain bagel's not appealing and when I haven't packed anything else. I also have a few cans of tuna and a jar of mayo in the faculty fridge, 'though I haven't employed them for use on a bagel yet.

    Three bagels cost less than three dollars all together, and I can't say yet that I've ever gotten tired of them. Plus, the bakery opens at 5:00 in the morning, which is about when I usually try to be on the road to school.

    So a beautiful woman does have something to do with my current bagel phase, but it's not exactly what you think: She's known me since I was in seventh grade and is much more of an auntie-figure than almost anyone I can think of! She even gave me a free cookie last week!

    Almost as extensive as the pizza essay on ilind.net, and a lot more sensitive, too. Bagels are pretty wonderful stuff. Enjoy!!!

    Pizza essay? I read ilind.net every day. Did I miss something? Or am I really getting that old? I do admit, however, that I sometimes skip past the cats. Maybe I skipped cats and pizza.

    Trying to be on topic: this morning I had a banana. How boring is that?

    A cinnamon-raisin bagel and a 24-oz Rockstar. Didn't get much sleep last night.

    It's a link on the left. Be prepared to spend some time, as the author left out no details.

    OJ, cereal - and a sh*t-load of phone calls to try and figure out why my prescription (and all other) medical coverage has been cut off, even though I'm paying LOT$/month to have post-layoff COBRA continuation...

    Cinnamon-raisin bagel with peanut butter and honey. And a Diet Pepsi.

    Saturday mornings, it would seem, are not to be missed at the bagel bakery. I was served by a cute little Filipino girl in pink shorts who had to STREEEEEETCH up on tippy-toes to get my bagel out of the top bin. Some honey to go with my bagel.

    No doubt, good mouth feel in this meal. I find Diet Pepsi a good chaser as well.

    "Cinnamon Roll" Pop-Tarts, baby! With an o.j. chaser.

    And a friend (also-unemployed former co-worker, hence the cheap deal) is treating me to lunch today ... at McDonald's.

    I won't have any dinner tonight, because of a gig.


    Some days, the concept of 'sensible eating' just doesn't even bother to make an appearance.

    Those cin-roll Pop-Tarts are a great idea, but they are awful in reality. Bleah!

    I did have, however, some Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Roll ice cream last night and that was KILLER!
