there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating lunch at 11:30

in fact, i encourage it.

there’s two things you ought to know about me before you read this any further: one, this is, for all intents and purposes, a blog still very much in test-mode. well, these first entries anyway. i don’t have a clue of its focus as of yet, and it’s very existence is most likely due to whey protein overload (thank YOU starbucks smoothie! have you tried yet? omG delish!) and over-caffeination (again: thank you, my dear old friend S. Bux), but mostly my fabulous food blogger friend—and bff, i must add—nicole, she of cucinanicolina—who advised me the other day (after excessive cross-country txt msging, i may add.) to “just start.” just to start typing and see where it takes me. so here i am!

number two: yes, i do—more often than not—eat lunch at 11:30. that’s a.m. sometimes even earlier. in fact, oftentimes i’m hungry for lunch at 10:30. (like right now, as i write this.) i used to be embarrassed to even admit it, let alone eat it. but i don’t care anymore. i suppose i’ll discuss some of the reasons why i think get hungry so early in later posts (these will all be theories, as i really and truly do not know). but for now, i’m just putting it out there.
and hell, i’ll add a couple more things while i’m at it:
1. i get a lot of headaches. unfortunately. so if i disappear for a couple days, that’s probably why. fear not, tho! i always return. usually in a downright awesome mood.
2. um, i wear a lot of black, but, contrary to popular belief (and by popular belief i mean that of middle-aged admin ladies), am not goth. not goth. just from jersey. wear frosty lipstick, too. also a north jersey trait, i’ve discovered. am also a big fan of bangs. and i hear i chew gum pretty loudly, too. classy chick, right?? 

3. i’m 29, on the cusp of 30 (october thankyouverymuch), but feel perpetually 15. in fact, i frequent mall psuedo-punk franchise hot topic more than i’d like to admit. (hey, cut me some slack, ppl. where’s a girl supposed to find a ramones t-shirt around these parts anyway?) funny thing is that when i walk in, the grumpy (but pleasantly so) cashiers say hi like i’m not the office drone i some days fear i’ve become so i guess i put up a pretty good front. (well, i guess the bangs help. also said loud gum-chewing.)
4. i live in baltimore. (lots more on baltimore in the near-future, i’m sure.) grew up in, yes, new jersey. lived in D.C. for a good long while and miss it terribly (but still get my hairs did there, so you know i’m back pretty often) what else, what else…ah, right. am gay, gay, gay. in fact, i’m having what i like to call a Big Fat Gay Wedding this fall. i’m tying the knot with my fabulous holly, partner of seven+ years. i’m also jewish. so the gay jokes and the jewish jokes are ON, ppl. don’t even start. b/c if you ARE one, you can poke fun. and, if nothing else, this blog’s gonna be fun.

i think that’s all for now, b/c i’m hungry as all get-out. like, my hands are practically shaking. i know, right?? and it’s not even 11:30.

  1. It’s not even 10.30 and I’m ready for lunch. Love ya bff!

  2. Don’t worry about the 11:30 lunch thing. I’m a teacher and sometimes have to eat lunch at 10:30-11am because I’m teaching the rest of the day. I also eat breakfast early, like 6:30am. Great blog! Good luck!

  3. i heart lunch. sometimes 11:30am, sometimes 2pm. mostly both. yay blogging!

  4. Lunch rocks!! and damn it…. the sooner the better..
    I’m counting down the days for your wedding. 🙂

    oh yeah, well, as I’m eating breakfast, I’m planning what to have for lunch. I then will usually eat half my lunch at 12 and then the other half around 4. Dinner between 8-9, unfortunately because of stupid work schedule. Love the blog darlin’! Can’t wait to see you in a few short weeks in Rochester!

  6. um i start eating as soon as I get up and don’t stop till just before i go to bed so i TOTALLY understand the lunch at 11:30 – from one jersey girl to another frosted lipstick and bangs ROCK!

  7. So it’s 11:47am and I’ve been hungry for about an hour. I’m trying to restrain and wait it out til “lunchtime”. I, however, fully believe that if breakfast is the most important meal of the day…then why not have 2! Diggin’ the Blog! 🙂

  8. i didn’t know you guys lived in balmore, i went to mica for a year, i heart baltimore!

  9. so you totally know that I eat lunch at 11:30 too. nothing to be ashamed of, (I also eat snacks all day!)

  10. #1 – i spend most of my day thinking about what/when i’m going to eat next, so don’t worry about that.
    #2 – honestly, it IS hard to find decent t’s anywhere else these days. if you DIDN’T go to the Topic, you’d be stuck wearing Hannah Montana crap. and you’re above that, jessica.
    (p.s. – they’re nicer to you there if you have visible tats or piercings, i find.)
    #3 – i’m really happy to hear that you still feel 15, b/c you and i were BFF back then! so yea for me!

  11. I liked your most recent entry so much that I figured everything would make that much more sense if I started from the beginning.

    No, I am not a stalker.

    I shop at juniors stores too. I’m 31. I like Wet Seal.
