1. A few days ago I made a bowl of sugar-free Jell-O as called for during the "strict" phase of the South Beach Diet. Under ordinary circumstances I never buy artificially sweetened foods, but these aren't ordinary circumstances. I must admit, a tiny dish of artificially sweetened orange Jell-O is very sustaining when you're not allowed to eat, say, an orange.
Anyway, just a few minutes ago I discovered that my Jell-O was very thick and leathery towards the bottom of the bowl. I'll give this to the chickens, I thought. Then: Oh shoot, can't. It would be bad for them.
Higher standards for chickens than for myself!!!!
2. Rented Pineapple Express. All the way home from the video store: pineapple, pineapple, pineapple.
Is this a good movie? It looks funny, plus: James Franco.
3. There's a "petite sirloin" steak in the fridge for dinner. I'm dreading it like a root canal.
I dislike this diet intensely.
