  • A Day of "Up Yers!"

    It's my bday. Well, okay... yesterday technically was, but tonight's the actual gathering and celebration. I'm eatin' cake and Chinese food and drinkin' til I don't make no sense no more. No rice, but not because I give a shit (today). I'm not eating rice because I ate so goddamn much in China a few years ago that I'm pretty sick of it.

    Bring on the carbs and crappy feeling tomorrow! Time to indulge in the generosity of friends. Sometimes being Primal means not fucking up your friends' day by saying "Oh, I can't eat X, Y or Z...". Sometimes it means saying "Fuck yeah! Bring it on!" and knowing that it won't divert you and that a day (if that) will turn around any such minuscule damage, if it's even that. I'm a river, not a creek. This tiny stone of an evening has zero effect. Consider that!

    Okay, I'm off to order and pick up some gong bao ji ding, qiezi and other lovely wonders. (And no, I don't consider this my "20%." The concept of 20% can suck it. I hate the idea -- stupid excuses. I'm completely cognizant of my non-Primal'ness today and I'm exulting in it.)

              Right on, Patrick. I figured a while back that it's just plain silly to feel guilt about what you eat/do.

                    Happy Birthday!

                    I'm getting ready for a similar day on Sunday because of the Super Bowl. A bunch of us Americans here in London have rented out a place to watch the game (local time 11pm - 3am) and for one upfront fee, we get unlimited pizza and beer. I'm from NYC, so I know pizza, and from what the others have told me, this is possibly the best pizza in London. I can say no to crappy London pizza, but if this is anything like real NYC pizza, I'm in trouble...

                            Happy Birthday! I plan to follow your "Up yers" b-day plan in about 6 weeks myself. Great idea.

                              I looooove your attitude, haha. 'FUCK YEH I'M HAVING A BIRTHDAY' is so much nicer to see than something like 'oopsie poopsie, I ate some cake, better chalk that up to my 20% teehee'
                              Have a wonderful day!
