Meh...

I seem to be having a little trouble stringing more than a couple sentences together. Can’t bitch, it was self inflicted. Nothing terribly habit forming. And less harmful than the stuff I would have eaten and drank had I gone out tonight.

  • Skipped BW3 again tonight once I found out friend KD wasn't going to make it. When I weighed myself on Sunday I was up over 285. Today (Wednesday) I weighed around 277. Beer does that to me? Or is it a combination of beer and crap that eat while under the influence? I’m betting on a combination. I always go out over the weekend at some point and drink beer. And eat junk. WW is right though it does seem like a large amount if it is just water (beer) weight gain. My weight has been doing this for a while now. But I usually don’t end up with a net loss. Been fairly consistent with that when I stay home. Even *I* can see the connection here. There’s no beer I’d consider drinking even here. I’m a little concerned, but I think it requires more study than just a few weeks.
  • Someone 2 floors down was smoking holding the butt hanging over the rail. I could smell it as soon as I stepped out the patio door. Interesting. Didn’t make me want one. Been just about a year since I smoked. Vaporing doesn't count. So sez my doctor. And my daughter. I agree. I’ve had a full unopened pack of smokes sitting around here for about 6 months.
Those two points are deep enough for a post from me. So...

Bullet Time!


  • Must be kind of a slow news day. I finished the paper within an hour or so. Puzzle and all. Skipped sports and business, other than to scan the front pages of both. Back into the bag you go.
  • That storm up the eastern seaboard floors me. You do not expect to see a river running block to block in NYC. Houston. Well yeah. NOLA? Indeed. But NYC? Not me.
  • It has really stunk outside early in the morning when I’ve been up this week. Been at least a couple of days when I actually closed the door and windows. Been up before 0800 most of the week. Doesn’t seem to smell too god-awful now though. Had the door and windows open most of the day.
  • Looks like the ’actual’ lifehacker.com, must have had their servers up in the northeastern part of the country. Only thing I can connect to them via their backup site: http://updates.lifehacker.com/ Can’t even leave a comment. Only “LIKE” the post. *shudder* Or retweet. Reckon they are lucky they can still get some posts out though. It is very stark and clean, though. Lifehacker is one of my goto sites.
  • I really need to read and write more often. I’m behind on all three of the mags I subscribe to. I love to read. And writing, I find cathartic. Even if it isn’t shared here or any where else. Coherence and some form a clarity are what I get from it, I guess.
And now in a completely different direction ~

My only concerns with having a “brown-black” desktop (which I do) is I lose dark colored stuff on it (which I do) . I may have to get some sort of desk blotter that ain’t black. See what I can find. Maybe even a paper one. Or something tan. Paper would probably be more practical.

Food ~

Is it cool to throw rice in with the gumbo after they are both cooked? Rhetorical question. Just wish I had the fore sight to buy crackers or some sourdough bread the last time I was out.. *grins*

And in closing ~

Oh well. No big deals here. Just feelin’ right tonight.

Drinking almost anything lends itself to eating whatever crap is available. And it's almost always salty crap, which of course leads to water weight gain. When my rings are very tight, I know it's time to throw out the chips.

I guess I meant thoughts. Not sentences. Who knows?!

Interesting connections you've made with the beer and the junk food. I'd say your conclusions on that are probably correct. :)

An f-lister in Maryland who had been through several hurricanes said it was the most epic he had ever seen. Wow.

Epic seems an appropriate word for most hurricanes.

Yeah, I too think you might be right on the beer and junk food thing. I tet water retention when I work hard.

Congrats on the smoking thing. That's really an achievement.

I would throw rice in the gumbo, so long as the rice was fresh :)

Rice was fresh. And into the gumbo it went.

Not smoking ~Thanks!

That should have been 'get'. *Blush*
