Cheat Days, week of 10/15
Hello, gentle reader. I’m writing this to document my continuing saga of my weight loss/cheat days. Last Friday, I weighed in at a little under 216 pounds (Don’t remember how much I weighed the Friday before, but I’d lost ten pounds or more overall.), and the next day, I had another cheat day. Here’s what’s up: - Breakfast: went to Brooklyn Water Bagels in...
I don’t post a hell of a lot on this blog, but from now on I’m going to post a bunch of diet-related stuff, most avidly a record of my cheat days. Cheat days are the days (typically Saturday or Sunday) where I break my diet (no carbs, no dairy, only lean meat)/eat a shit load, often gaining back a large percentage of the weight I lost during the weak. Most days I eat 1200 calories, so...

When they released As Good As It Gets in Jamaica, they changed the line “You make me want to be a better person.” to “Jamaican me want to be a better person.” They *dubbed* it over, as they are wont to do there.
I was dating a Caribbean woman. I think I blew it though, because one morning I asked her, “Jamaican me breakfast?”
I love graduation time because I love watching irreverent commencement speeches and reading articles about how there are no jobs. It’s like a speedball.
I wore Shape-ups every day for the past two years for nothing?
Hey guys, I got Noam Chomsky’s book Occupy. Is it bad that I bought it at a Barnes and Noble? Also I got Discipline and Punish by Foucault, because I’m pretending I’m a college freshman, and my brain is still growing.

I’m not dating material. Women will tell me that probably because I have a tattoo of my car. … But fuck that, I know how to have fun. I have brilliant first date ideas. Who here knows about the movie Antichrist? … Antichrist is this little film about a married couple who retreats to this remote cabin to rekindle their sex life. It starts as kind of a kinky Adam-and-Eve fantasy,...
