My diet is working

I got on the scale last night and found that I have lost 5 pounds over the past week. Which is good. Like most rotund penguins, I carry more fat around than is really good for me.

However, the diet which achieved those results -- a diet of grief, anger, sorrow, and mourning over the fate of a city (New Orleans) that I loved and the people therein, combined with heartbreak and difficulty sleeping -- is not a diet which I recommend.

  1. I've been putting on weight. All I've been doing is sitting in front of this damn computer, reading these heart-breaking stories, not getting the exercise I normally would, and occasionally drinking. Like I need the weight. Or the alcohol.

    If this keeps up, they may have to bury me in a small piano case...

  2. Medicate with chocolate. M&Ms are wonderful candy-coated pills. Mix with Penguinmints, and I can stay up 24/7 overwhelmed in my chocolate haze.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
