The past few days have been interesting, if only marginally eventful. I was invited out on Friday by a coworker for real English tea (don't get excited; it was a group event). We went to this hole-in-the-wall tea place that served up some good tea, along with EXCELLENT chicken salad, egg salad, and cucumber tea sandwiches. They sounded terrible, but they were quite good. Then the savories, then the scones, then the chocolate truffles and napoleons. For something that, as far as I understand it, is supposed to be a snack, it filled me up pretty good. Then off to Westwood to poke around Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash. It was a good day.

Sunday was rehearsal for the play, and also armor fitting. This creates a problem. See, I make a lot of promises about losing weight, but I just like food too damn much and I'm a lazy ass. It all changes now though, because I literally CANNOT gain any weight. The bigger I am, the less I can breathe in my suit of armor. So yeah, it's rabbit food and Bataan death marches every day for me until the end of the show's run.

If you are thinking about loosing weight talk to Joe or myself about Weight Watchers - it is super cheap and when you are loosing weight you are like "WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS SOONER?".
