I Don’t Eat There Anymore.

I am a picky eater when it comes to many things (like potatoes). It isn’t just food, it’s a lot of things. We all have our little quirks when it comes to things. I have an issue with straws. I’ll use them in certain style cups and won’t in others. I can’t use them in glass cups. I can’t and I won’t. I worked with a guy who could only have 14 ice cubes in his cup. Or was it twelve? No matter. That eff’ed up. Can’t talk really. I have problems of my own. Aside from my cup and straw rule, food is an important thing in my life. I like food. I really, really like food. If I had the chance I would eat all day. You might be thinking, what about gaining weight? Aren’t you worried about that? No I am not. I was gifted with a strangely high metabolism. I can eat and eat and not gain a pound. I am not worried about when I hit forty. I don’t think I’ll hit forty with my life style. If I don, that will be a joyous day. The angels with sing and a parade will be held in my honor.

June Stats – Part II: Food

Sorry about slacking on posting the data for the month of June. I have been slightly addicted to the site, Bitstrips. Too fun. I mentioned in my last post that I haven’t been eating right. Actually, I never eat right. Let me rephrase what I just said. I’ve haven’t been eating. After I get home from work, I am just too lazy to leave again. I have no food in the house. I’ll shop tomorrow. I promise. Not that you care but not having food in the house blows. Anyway, here is the data for last month. Remember, next week sometime (hopefully), I’ll post the 6 month log.

    I hate writing these up. I always feel bad after I do. I keep saying I should eat healthier or maybe try to actually eat at home. I tend to eat the same shit every month. Why not I take the stand now. I mean, I am already half way through the year. Maybe it is time for me to get cracking on cooking at home again. But I said it before, it sucks cooking for one person. How much do I make? I am not too fond of left overs. I like fresh food.  Since this is the 6 month mark, here are the links to all the months before. You can look it over if you like. I’ll do my best to get the stats up next week. It shouldn’t be too hard. Just a lot of note taking.
