Well, That Was Unexpected

Real life is stranger than fiction...depending on which authors you read, of course.

lying on the floor, you found me, you found me

i am on week 4 of the 8 week travel extravaganza. i am sitting on the floor of the denver airport. i felt so glorious after my flight out of SD had been delayed, and yet i was one of the only people who had enough time to still make their connection. only to arrive at the gate and find that the plane i reached in such a timely manner has some major mechanical failure and now, for snow-unrelated reasons, i find myself sharing the only active outlet near our gate with a man charging his ipod. and me on the floor. on top of this, i ruefully realized that both of my phone chargers are in my checked baggage. and my phone is dead. kaputska!

why are there two amish farmer looking men wearing nehru collared suits at my gate?

other people in colorado are so hilariously active looking. all fleeced out and puffy vested and with utilitarian shoes.

last week in new york was a crazy chaotic mess work-wise, which turned out ok in the end, as so many messes seem to do. there were bright spots though, personally--i ate twice at les halles, the french restaurant at which tony bourdain was head chef for many years, i met up with misha again (who reminded me why i love my friends so dearly, when she requested, instead of going to the palms to indulge in their steak and lobster for 2 for 89.00 special as i suggested as a treat, that we go to applebees and indulge in the quesadilla burger which she had been craving for months.) also met up with moriah, an old friend from high school and we had way too good a conversation, because it lasted for over 6 hours and that meant we drank a detrimental amount of red wine. totally worth it, but just for general friend knowledge, low carb diets and red wine are not an excellent combination in the end. the end meaning the next day.

it was discovered yesterday at a bridal shower that i have been doing the low carb thing wrong (not being intensely low carb enough, and drinking alcohol occasionally, and eating too many stupid tomatoes, which i don't even like that much) and that is why the weight is more like slowly shaving off rather than dramatically melting and falling off. luckily that wasnt totally the point, the point was more to be off sugar for lent, which was done fairly successfully. i definitely notice the effect of any sugar that unexpectedly makes it into my food and everything tastes sweeter. but we are getting to the end of lent and i am about to go to india and so i want to transition on to weight watchers. i feel this is particularly necessary since i recently found out that i have high cholesterol. boo. i turn 30 and thus begins my parade of health problems.
