Gym Snack Bento

Feta cheese and Ak-Mak whole wheat crackers; roasted zucchini, tomato, olives, and hard-boiled egg with nanami togarashi on top.

This was so welcome after a hard hour on the elliptical watching some bizarre TV show about a Hispanic high school girls' volleyball team. During their games they had a DJ who did the record-scritching thing, and also a team of young male dancers. The show followed their season from:

(a) initial humiliating loss, which caused their coach to force them to sit on the locker room floor and hold hands for team building; through

(b) a subsequent unbroken string of victories set to rousing hip-hop music, to

(c) a fatal night when they drugged each other pre-game in boyfriend jealousy, and staggered around the court like pole-axed cattle; to

(d) an ending that I missed. I am guessing that ending would be

(e) Happy!! They all worked it out, the coach drew a moral, and one or more of them got scholarship offers, while hip-hop music blared over it all and the credits began to roll.


  1. HA HA HA!! You watch the craziest stuff when at the gym! :P

    Don't you love nanami togarashi? I can't get enough of the stuff! :)

  2. Aren't you haunted forever not really knowing. Clearly you needed to work out another 30 minutes. That must be the goal of Gym TV! ;)

  3. Avie: Yes it is research TV watching; I have to understand Aemricna culture blah blah plus it is fascinating. LOVE nanami t and am going to try to score a barrel of it on my trip to Madison next weekend.

    Pigs Do Fly: Yes I am really sorry I couldn't last out this drama to its end. It might have been surprising or even sinister...but I was Done.
