If I Were a Superhero…


I would wear a mask so no one wouldΒ know my true identity.

Herbal Sleep

Or see the dark circles under my eyes since I’m obviously immune to medicinally herbally(?) induced comas.


My costume would be constructed from unexpected fabrics…you know, since I’m not using them for SLEEP!

Cereal & Peanut Flour

And my power source would come from a heavy supply of carbs and peanut flour…
and Quest Bars…and caffeine…lots and lots of caffeine!

Black Thumb

I could save the world from any possible botanical domination…

Dead Basil

Because obviously I have a black belt thumb in plant annihilation.

I could save people from a life of materialism…

Snowman Plate

Because my innate ability to break things knows no bounds…
or love for preciousΒ snowman plates. πŸ™

I could end world hunger…

Nothing beats the balance of this bowl...healthy fats, plant-based proteins, and ZERO sugar! Start your year off RIGHT with this Detox Quinoa Salad from www.kissmybroccoliblog.com!

Starting with yesterday’s Detox Quinoa Salad…and also take a moment to tell you guys that it got RAVE reviews from everybody at work the other night!

Or I could ditch all that, totally lose my train of thought, and start thinking about how cool it would be to own a mini giraffe…

Mini Giraffe

[original source]

I blame this interruption of thoughts on the fact that it’s 2am and I’m still awake! disturbing observation of two giraffes fighting on the Animal Planet the other day…I swear I always just thought of them as being such peaceful creatures…haven’t been able to get it out of my head since! Obviously my mini one would be too cute to have such a violent temperament. πŸ˜‰


Yeah, so if this insomnia-motivated post isn’t a contender for Amanda’s linkupΒ of randomness, I don’t know WHAT is! 😯

Edited to add: Out of complete desperation, I took a Benedryl at 3:30am and woke up at noon today…thank you sweet baby Jesus!

If you were a superhero, what would your semi-practical superpower be?

Who knows where I can get a mini giraffe?Β

    You are so adorable Ms Broccoli πŸ˜‰ That mask is genius- disguise and beauty therapy in one- great dual-purpose right there! I want in on a mini-giraffe too, too cute. If I were a superhero I think I’d be pyjama girl- I would wear pyjamas (obviously a plus) and would magically make boxes of cereal (bowl, spoon and your choice of milk and toppings would also be included) wherever someone was in need of breakfast. I think I would be very popular.

      I THINK you need to be my side kick! I like your style…and together, we can bring delicious breakfast to the WORRRRRRRRLD! πŸ˜‰

    i like your sleep deprived superhero talk. makes me smile… and want a baby giraffe.

  3. Need a baby giraffe! As long as he stays that tiny forever. πŸ™‚

  4. Is that mini giraffe for real? How cute is that! Need to head over and check out that detox salad.

  5. Yup, I could go for a mini giraffe :-p

  6. The mini giraffe is adorable! I like the costume of the sleep deprived superhero!

  7. I was experienced a bout of insomnia last night too… Thankfully (or unthankfully?) TV kept things weird and hooked me in. On TLC people wanted to be life-sized dolls and on Animal Planet or The Discovery Channel (I forget?) people were talking about their encounters with mermaids. I LOL’ed throughout the whole mermaid show because we watched Zoolander yesterday morning… “MERMAN, dad. Merman!”

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Hahaha! Omg, that is hilarious! Oh the things you see on late night television! And seriously, Zoolander? What a classic!

    My super power would be to be able to paint my nails without messing them up! I swear every time I paint them there is always one “raisin” nail.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      “Raisin” nail? Hahaha! Love that! And I totally feel ya! The last time I painted my nails, I had to redo half of them…I swear it was the longest manicure ever! Lol

  9. Oh noes! The snowman plate! πŸ˜₯ I dropped a cup onto one of my favourite reindeer plates and the cup ended up being fine while the plate walked away with a nice big chip in it. Still usable, but I have to get creative when I’m trying to take pictures with it πŸ˜‰ And if you find a mini giraffe, see if they have any mini elephants — I’d kill for one!

    Hope you manage to catch up on some sleep soon. Mine’s been wonky lately too, and I’m feeling more or less like a zombie…

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one putting a “dent” in my photography prop stash…though I can’t remember the last one that I was able to save…and I SWEAR it always happens to things I only have ONE of! Womp womp!

      Mini elephant! On the lookout! πŸ˜‰

  10. My super power would be to have energy all day like my three year old! Seriously, can we just bottle a a child’s energy?

    I love your detox quinoa salad! I’m making a quinoa Mediterranean salad for dinner tonight and I can’t wait!

    Hope you are able to get some rest soon!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      For real! The energy of a child is never-ending! I have no idea how I used to just go, go, go all day like that! Haha!

      And luckily, after TWO sleep strips, one does of iChill, and a cup of chamomile tea…I gave up and took a Benedryl and was out like a light! πŸ˜‰

  11. I feel you on sleep deprivation girl.. major insomnia going on over here…
    I want a baby giraffe now!!!

  12. purelytwins says:

    mini giraffe!!! OMG too cute

    and we here ya on lots of caffeine!!

  13. If you were a superhero, you’d have the coolest comic book EVER. I’d totally buy that shit.

    I have a mini giraffe guy if you really want one. Keep it on the DL, though.

  14. Will you have a superhero show that is on air soon? And in Switzerland too, please?
    I bet ebay has mini giraffes.

  15. Um, I need a mini giraffe. That is all. Please

  16. We have mini giraffes here in Australia, all households do. I guess that means you need to come.

    If I were a superhero, I would want to be invincible. How cool would that be? Well, cool until you misuse that power πŸ˜‰

  17. Oh that poor sweet mint plant. Watering is not your friend, although I could see how a baby giraffe would be. He’s adorable, and I would like one too, although if they are as violent as you say, I’m not sure how well they’ll play with the kitties. If I were a super hero, my powers would involve kitchen dance parties coupled with the ability to sing in tune.
