  • I am in the same boat today Panda. Grumpy because I had a stressful day at school yesterday and now I might have to drop one of my classes (not by my own choice) which means I will be in school 6 months longer than I had planned. I have never been one to just go with the flow and be fine with it. Change bothers me and stresses me, and normally this would be the time when I would drown my sorrows in muffins and coke. I don't want to do that any longer as I am better off without those things.

    As for the fruit, I find I do better if I don't go too crazy with it too. That might be what has triggered your cravings today. I hope you return to circling happy faces on feelings charts tomorrow.

          Down with grumpy moods! I hope that you do not have to drop your class (bad teacher? time conflict?)

          My mood of last night slowly lifted after drinking some heavy cream. Placebo effect or not, I'm just glad that it went away. I had no idea that I was capable of such powerful cravings! But fortunately, I am also capable of tremendous laziness, which kept me from driving to Trader Joe's for a bag of chocolate-covered pretzels.

              Exactly! I looked those cravings right in the eye and told them if they wanted chocolate-covered pretzels so badly, then THEY could get changed, find where Benign Poltergeist hid the keys, go to the car, zoom past Poo Hurler's house, drive half an hour to Trader Joe's, drive half an hour back, and then eat all the pretzels that they wanted. And you know what? My cravings were not nearly as strong as my laziness, which looked at that list of tasks and said, "Like HELL!"

              But I am so, so happy that I do not have those things in the house, or last night might have gone very, very differently.

              • Good for you! I talked myself into a binge just this afternoon. Of course I live in a home with 4 non Primal people so there is temptation everywhere. The really stupid thing is that I just celebrated 1 year of being Primal (albeit not always faithfully). It was a good weekend and I hit a new low weight.
                So stupid...I even eat badly when life is relatively good. I tend to do this every time I hit a new Primal milestone. Oh well, time to climb back on the horse.

                  Yikes, this would make primal much harder for me in my bad moments. Binge aside, CONGRATULATIONS on 1 year of primal!

                    This has given me a great mental image all day of doing a silent It Gets Better video in a panda costume, holding a pointer to my speech written out on poster boards.

                    And everyone will think that I am absolutely insane. Or a furry.

                      I wish I could blame it on someone or something other than myself, but sadly not so. I am fine when it comes to the day to day parts of my program (currently sitting at 100% for my practice labs, all my written work, etc) but when it comes to an actual lab test, where I know I am going to be closely scrutinized, my self-conscious nature causes my brain to go into panic mode and I make stupid mistakes. For these tests, there is no marking on a percentage scale...you either pass or fail. One mistake, regardless of how minor = game over. I failed the same lab twice. So on Tuesday I have to go before the head of the program and will be told whether or not I can remain in the class or if I will have to take it at a later time.

                      This is weighing heavily on my mind, and I am trying to find something to distract myself from my self pity. I planned to go for a hike, but a sign was placed on the gate by my house warning about bears being active in the area, which explains the big mounds of poop with the cherry pits in them, that I have been stepping over on my hikes recently. The bear zone involves only about 10% of my regular route, so what are the chances I will run into one? And if I do, will the bear decide that I have just the right amount of fat to still be delicious, or would he rather wait for some grain/sugar fed child with a creamy cadbury center? (one part of the path is also a short cut many elementary school children take to school) Hmmm.. what to do, what to do?

                      • never mind...it started to rain. Take a chance on running into a bear? probably. Get my hair wet? pffffft not happening.

                            I have spent the last hour and a half contemplating if I would rather have people think I A: was insane; or B: snuggle with Wookies.

                            If I knew that someone did B, I would automatically assume A about them. So it's a double blow, and therefore I would have to go with choosing A for myself. However, it is utterly uncharitable of me to assume that people who snuggle with Wookies are all nuts. Some of them surely are, but it's a gross generalization to say that all of them are.

                            If one day the world is under alien attack, and the only one who could save us was a furry, I would hate to know that the reason he or she turned his or her (furry) back on humanity was because I had not extended the branch of acceptance first. After all, what a furry does affects me and my life not one bit. People into furry-ism improve our struggling economy. They pump money into arts-and-crafts stores for their costume making if they are creative, rental stores if they are not. They provide Gay Panda with entertainment online in blogs, giving me a reason to pay for DSL. They indirectly support the food-and-beverage industry, because when Gay Panda was teaching Lady Friend and several others the furry lexicon at a nice restaurant, we laughed so hard that people walking by assumed that it was the restaurant which must be wonderful, and came in for a table.

                            Furries have conventions (such as the Furry Weekend Atlanta in March 2012: Moulin Rouge), booking hotels as other businesses go bankrupt and quit their own. They have art and gaming communities, publish comic books, they post 'fursonals' and hope to find love, there are Jewish Furries and Christian Furries websites for those who need to connect on a spiritual level. Being a furry is no weirder than having a sneezing fetish (and frankly, being a furry is less icky to Gay Panda than someone who craves being sneezed upon. EEEEWWWWWWW.)

                            But, having considered all of that, Gay Panda would still pick A. However, if the choices were limited to B: snuggles with Wookies; C: defiles innocent Cadbury Eggs; and D: sneezing fetish, then my selection becomes more difficult. I think that I would prefer people believe that I'm sitting here in a panda costume roving fursonal ads than doing what Rod and his pervy girlfriend do with Cadbury Eggs, and I would rather people think that I'm buying Eggs in bulk for bedroom purposes than SNEEZING ON MY ROMANTIC PARTNERS.

                            So, now that I have presented my answers, primal community, in the order of insanity-furry-Eggs-sneezing, I wonder about you. Even you, quiet lurkers. ESPECIALLY you.
