Playing With Dolls
Photo: Well, what would you do with anatomical elephants and humans? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Yesterday was pretty good. Fox and I tried Porta Bella off State last night. My small (GIANT) pizza was acceptable, as is the way of mediocre pizza, and Fox was satisfied with her scallops and shrimp dish. It was entirely unremarkable.

And I know waht you're saying: "ABM, aren't you tryig to reduce calories and don't you have a weakness for pizza?" Why yes, I am and do! Indeed, I even had 4 ounces of beer last night two! I consumed a scant slice and a half of the 12 inch pizza. I was full on that and the beer. it was glorious. And by glorious I really mean "astounding and infuriating." Because I wanted so much to eat the hell out of that pizza.

I suspect my success stems from eating 4 times prior in smaller quantity and eating slowly.

Yes, this is the same thing that every diet expert and book tells you to do.

It's because it works.

    Other things!
  1. I am excited for this weekend's wedding shoot.
  2. I am making falafel tonight and that is AWESOME.
  3. It will include naan.
  4. I am ignoring some larger projects to get some smaller things out of the way.
  5. I'm no longer using artificial sweeteners in my coffee. I can handle the extra sugar calories to avoid a few more chemicals.
  6. This is likely another step towards drinking only tea at work again.
  7. I'm thinking about sex right now.

are you on yelp? you could write about the unremarkable pizza.

i LOVE falafel. i hope you're making hummus and bismati rice, too.

No rice. Naan. That's plenty of starch!
Maybe hummus though we didn't soak enough beans last night to do both.

I had falafel for lunch yesterday which is why I want to make more. I loves me some healthy middle eastern food. Well.. mostly healthy what with the frying....

oh touche, you're right.

also, you can bake falafel: http://mideastfood.about.com/od/maindishes/r/bakedfalafel.htm

Oh, I know. I prefer them fried. Better crust and a little more flavor. I'm not THAT worried about the calorie difference.


mmm... chick peas.

I would make epic battles with anatomical human and elephant models.

Anatomical toys are for play sexin', silly walker.

She liked it.

Also: I like my hands.
abmann From: abmann Date: March 3rd, 2009 06:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
She was drunk she didn't know what was happening. Silence is not consent!

Also: I like your hands here too. Careful.
narcissuskisses From: narcissuskisses Date: March 3rd, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
Careful about what?
abmann From: abmann Date: March 3rd, 2009 07:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
They were being careful? Look careful? Delicate but not like traditional "porcelain" connotation.

I started tracking my calories and eating at multiple, regular points in the day. This has so far taught me that some days I eat about 1000 calories and some days I eat about 5000. I also eat less the more exercise/activity I do, so it would be way easy for me to diet if I could spend all my time laying in bed and have people push rice cakes into my mouth and rub my throat 4 times a day.
abmann From: abmann Date: March 3rd, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Man, life would be so much easier if I had rice cake servants too.

I recall your diet in college. I think you eat one every three days and it was usually a prospie.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: March 3rd, 2009 08:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
I really like my "eat 3000 calories in a single sitting once a day" diet. I should write a book about it. The hardest part so far is eating breakfast. Apparently they don't sell 500 calorie packages of prospie.

I would suggest fructose there are no chemicals because its made from fruit, has very low calories, won't spike your blood sugar, and takes like sugar. And behold I have become a food geek.

Also I've never understood the hype about Porta Bella either, it isn't very good at all.

Yes, that is exactly what I would do with anatomical figures and an elephant.
