I am taking a glorious 4 day weekend and it cannot come a moment too soon. Annie Birdie is getting hitched and I have several friends in town. I have barely drank in over a week so some serious drunkening is also on the horizon. That is the way Jesus wants it.
But first, a few questions to lead us in to the weekend:
- What is the deal with women and food in TV and movies? Has anyone ever noticed how much some of these women eat yet they are impossibly thin? I am thinking Lorelai and Rory Gilmore scarfing burgers all the time or the zillions of romantic heroines who eat ice cream every day and don’t seem to gain an ounce. There just seems to eb such a maddening disconnect. We never see these women on a treadmill or eating a chicken breast for dinner. Occasionally, there is a yoga class thrown in there, but it serves more as a location than a workout. Discuss.
- Could I actually have a tape worm? I have lost 8 lbs in the past two weeks. EIGHT POUNDS. Now, granted I had no appetite for about 5 days which is a first for me. I can always, always eat. My appetite is pretty much back, though. In fact, it is back to the extent where I have had two of those huge ass apple fritters from the locl coffee shop this week. You know the ones I am talking about–all covered in sugar and as big as your head and they are so dense they hit your desk with an audible “thunk” when you put them down. Truly, this is shameful and wholly unhealthy but it is all I want and I am still losing weight. What the hell is going on?
- Finally, and most importantly, what are you doing this weekend? Need recipe suggestions for a cookout? A restaurant recommendation? Ask below and I shall help.
