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.

Bob you never did say if you were still sitting naked in front of the computer.

Now what kind of an image is that?

I had a change of heart (without anesthetic) over the whole "sitting in front of the computer naked" thing. Let's just say that until the cat gets declawed, I won't be doing that again!!!

LOL

(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.)

Any Orlando area clumpers thinking about going to the Beer Festival at City Walk?

zgator, we'd be interested, assuming that baby-sitting logistics can be worked out. Remind me...when is it?

How 'bout the Food & Wine Festival?

Definitely up for King & I... sorry I missed your post -- see my e-mails and phone messages...

Anyway, I'm afraid the beer fest is out for us (Atkin's diet).

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.

Yikes!!! Zgator, I think I might like an explanation of that thing about pregnancy too.

As for Michelob Ultra (the low carb beer), given that it IS low carb, it's actually pretty good.

Sadly, the beer fest is unlikely to hold much promise of variety in the "low carb" department.

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.

We are still freaks however.

Icarus... I'm doing the Atkins diet as of this week. Aura started it a little bit before me, but not to worry. We can have carbo-binges every once in awhile and just suck it up later, you know.

:P

I refuse to let healthy dietary choices get in the way of a good time!!!

(Except that beer isn't worth it to me.)

Anyway, I'm sort of undecided on this Atkins thing. It works great but it gets really boring really fast.

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!

LOL @ your aunt...

Sorry.

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!!!
