The trouble with heartfelt toast is that it gets all soggy with blood and no matter how much jam you put on it, it never tastes the same. And half the time, the pumping just turns the thing to crumbs anyway.
Thanks CT...coming from someone who saves lives as a vocation, I take that as high praise indeed.
(You have a cat? Then I'm afraid we can never get together at you place, at least not with Cor present. BTW, I have not yet seen The King and I, I plan to go on Friday. Contact me if you want to go too, and maybe go out afterward.)
Icarus, we just went to the Food and Wine fest last weekend. The beer fest is the weekend of Nov. 9 and 10. That weekend will be one of those times where my wife may or may not be pregnant, so she won't be going. I may be meeting some friends there on the 10th.
Bob, you know Michelob makes a low carb beer now. It tastes like crap, but it's there.
I can see now where that statement might be a bit confusing. We are currently taking the artificial route to pregnancy and so we know exactly what day the blessed event would have occurred. That day just happens to be today. So given the 2 week window where you're waiting to know, she won't be drinking any alcohol for the time being.
I will be quite thrilled if it turns out that my child was conceived on Halloween. Not that I worship Samhain or anything. I just like Halloween.
Well, the thing with Atkins is you can't be bad and make up for it later. You have to stay in ketosis. If you binge, you wasted the two weeks or so it takes to get there. Other forms of dieting are more flexible in this regard.
My aunt makes this mistake on a regular basis. She claims to be on Atkins, and so lathers tons of butter on her BREAD. (I'm not exagerating. Think 4 patties on a roll.) We all look at her like she's nut and she says "I can have all the butter I want on this diet!" We ask, "but what about the bread?" And she says, "well, I'm doing a lot of walking today, so it's ok"! There's no making her understand that she can't balance some extra carbs with some extra exercise on this diet.
BTW, why on earth is Aura dieting? She's not overweight!
Anyway, Aura is dieting because she wants to drop a size or two to fit into her better clothes. She looks great to me, but what the heck, she's enjoying her treadmill (go figure) and actually likes how she feels on the Atkins diet.
I on the other hand, can feel the lipids coagulting like SuperGlue in my arteries!!!
