Cilantro Lime Garbanzo Salad (Mess In A Bowl)


My house is a mess, everything is covered in dust and what am I doing? Making more of a mess, of course. I spend an hour and a half going through old magazine clippings of recipes and then another forty minutes dusting under my bed. It is now the cleanest part of the apartment. I did a few dishes and ate popcorn while watching a French movie about a chocolatier. I uploaded a few CDs onto my computer and mailed a card to my Grandma. I took a shower and worried for a few minutes if I am actually losing my hair. I mean, so much comes out when I wash it. I thought about getting some pictures printed and then get them frames. I collected two giant bags of clothes I never wear and watched the Kardashians while I was at the gym. I eavesdropped on my neighbors a little. Someone please invent a supersonic space age vacuum that is inside your base boards and constantly sucks up all the dust. I will love you forever if you do it. Ok, Ok, promise. I am getting my vacuum right now and cleaning this place up and then I am going to get some chocolate.
