Or more to the point, Pumpkinbelly.

I am stuuuuuuuuuffed. I had a semi-big lunch (pulled pork and a sweet potato at Sonny's BBQ) and then tonight for dinner I went to Golden Corral with my mom and stepdad. I ate:

Approximately 4 oz. of bourbon chicken
1/2 cup corn
1 cup romaine lettuce
1 cup spinach leaves
1 cup tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup raw broccoli
1T shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup cantalope
1/2 cup honeydew
One yeast roll (because they are soooooooo good, and I was weak)

Now, most of that stuff (other than the roll) is very healthy and good for me. But I am so full right now that I need someone to jab my stomach with a knitting needle, so I can deflate.

Pre-dinner I saw my nephew Alex and my brother and sister-in-law. Alex, who will be 8 in December, dressed up as a ninja this year for Halloween and he looked SO. FREAKING. COOL. My mom took photos, which I will hopefully receive soon.

I've lost enough weight at this point that my beloved Mossimo brown pants are way, WAY too long, and I nearly fell down the stairs at work this morning after stepping on the hem of them. But I don't want to buy more clothes yet. And I don't know how much it's worth trying to hem these pants. I've been told to try that Stitch Witchery stuff, so I'm going to pick some up tomorrow.

So that's it for today. Oh, I'd like to thank Copssister and TVJunkie for the good thoughts and helpful information re: yesterday's entry. Cops, I'll drop you a line if anything bad happens with my auto insurance policy.

Just another reason I love - and could never again live without - the Internet.

Mr. Creosote Meets a Wafer-thin Mint
The Logical Conclusion to a Night of Bingeing


Maitre D: And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.

Mr Creosote: No.

Maitre D: Oh sir! It's only a tiny little thin one.

Mr Creosote: No. Fuck off - I'm full... [Belches]

Maitre D: Oh sir... it's only wafer thin.

Mr Creosote: Look - I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely stuffed. Bugger off.

Maitre D: Oh sir, just... just one...

Mr Creosote: Oh all right. Just one.

Maitre D: Just the one, sir... voila... bon appetit...

[Mr Creosote somehow manages to stuff the wafer-thin mint into his mouth and then swallows. The Maitre D takes a flying leap and cowers behind some potted plants. There is an ominous splitting sound. Mr Creosote looks rather helpless and then he explodes, covering waiters, diners, and technicians in a truly horrendous mix of half digested food, entrails and parts of his body. People start vomiting.]
Maitre D: [returns to Mr Creosote's table] Thank you, sir, and now the check.
