my raw cheese experience
in two words: not good.
i tried some at the farmer's market.
the taste sensation was incredible, magnificent. but still it was not as good as i had hoped.
it gave me gas, bloating, constipation, addiction (all told, i probably ate four ounces of cheese in the span of fifteen minutes, going back again and again for another piece), and cravings for things i usually don't want.
i had heard that cheese made with unpasteurized milk can have a different effect on the body than regular old cheese can. this did not apply to me. never again.
i did my taxes this weekend. turbotax says my refund is going to be enormous! i can buy a new blender and make a huge dent in my student loans!
also, a future freelance opportunity was presented to me today. the extra cash will be good.

and new rain boots because my old ones now have holes in them:
