    On a related note, my first word was "eat," closely followed by "go" and "mama." Apparently, my first phrase was "Go eat, Mama?" because I was hungry.
    My CW moment: A friend and I cook together every Friday night as a means to veg and hang out. He knows I tend not to think of it when CW dictates a meal should have bread with it, and uses it as an opportunity to cut back on the crap himself. We had a third person over a couple Fridays ago, and we made a thoroughly primal meal of beet raviolis topped with alfredo sauce with a side of sauteed beet greens. I hand him his plate and tell him to dig in. "Where're the raviolis?"
    "You're looking at 'em."
    "No pasta?"
    "Nope."
    "Oh. Huh. Should I go grab some French bread so we have carbs?"
    "You'd be the only one eating it and your food'd get cold, but go ahead."
    "Oh." he shrugs and digs in.

    My little brother's first word was "Pepsi." How's that for CW?

    I am learning to keep my mouth shut.

    My aunt is mostly vegetarian now and subscribes fully to SAD health standards. I saw a carton of organic egg whites in her fridge while visiting last week. Apparently she got a full check-up after my dad's heart attack last Fall and is also on statins (though a lower dose than him).

    My dad is on statins and is slowly losing weight (which he wants/needs to), but keeps commenting on how he hasn't been running because he's been tired lately. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE MOSTLY VEGETARIAN AND EAT TOO MANY GRAINS AND ARE ON STATINS. But I say nothing. If he wants to believe the doctors, that's his choice.

    My CW moment:

    My office staff knows that I don't eat grains/gluten or any other toxin/processed crap. Today our big boss brings in donuts. I politley decline. He then proceeds to tell me that he got me a cake donut, as opposed to a traditional donut, because it would have less fat in it??? While I appreciate the effort, I still wanted to beat my head on the desk...repeatedly...then file worker's comp.

    Protip: cherry-pitters are actually an amazing investment. Some people balk at them because theyre a unitasker (although ive been told they work for olives as well), but most of them work really well and it totally opens up what you can do with cherries. I decided to get one after friends of mine made a fresh fruit salad with fresh, pitted cherries in it. Even if all you do is eat the cherries as a snack, its so much easier to get the pit out at once, rather than have to gnaw on the cherry like a squirrel and get juice all over your hands.

    Unfortunately, I like cherries so much that I think I would pit and eat the entire bag by the handful. It's a pain to eat em with the pits in, but at least it forces me to go slow.

    I just got an email from my company. Apparently someone in the building--who I am not familiar with--has been out for an extended period because of illness. Not sure what the illness is, but I do hope the best for him and his family. Anyway, this email says that management wants to do a little local fundraiser to help him and his family out. Great, I am all about community support! But what are they doing for a fundraiser? Yeah, you guessed it. Bake sale.

    Not QUITE as ironic as selling candy to support diabetes research, but it still saddens me. :/

    I just pit them by smashing them with the side of the knife, like garlic, or by using my thumb as a pitter.

    I always thought that half the fun of cherries was spitting out the pits. Like watermelons. Or is that a country thing . . .
