lunchtime woes  
Today is a very sad day.

As I'm sure I've mentioned many times, I eat the same falafel salad for lunch just about every day. It's ritualistic, borderline obsessive compulsive really. But Magic Carpet, the vegetarian cart where I get it, is closing down today until January 9th! Stupid college students with their stupid winter break! What about me? What about Ass Monkey? Doesn't he deserve a delicious, healthy lunch too?

The ice cream place in the food court sells falafel, but it's not as good. I think I'd rather eat something completely different than a pale imitation of what I really want. I'd go to this great Vietnamese cart for some eggplant and tofu in black bean sauce a few blocks away, but they're probably shutting down too. If it's not too cold I could trek way over to the sushi place. They're probably staying open. Although, I know in my heart of hearts that I'm just going to end up going to pub and cheeseburgers and buffalo wings for the next two and half weeks.

For that reason, I think I'm going to stop weighing myself until mid January.

Diet is only half of the equation for weight loss.
You gotta start working out too if you want an ass worthy of your own diary!

Trek to the sushi place! I wish I had one to go to...damn midwest! At least you'll get the healthy lunch AND a nice little workout.

It's amazingly good. But the line is indeed a pain in the ass.

This is not nearly as sad as the discontinuation of Postum. At least your falafel guy will be back. I am so sad...

Oh no! Does that mean Mr. Coffee Nerves is going to be looking for work again?

Is it sad that bacon cheeseburgers sounds REALLY good right now?

They're just so delicious. The perfect marriage of cow and pig.

At least give it a shot man-don't totally give in.

Says the guy who's cold has totally derailed his program.

Hott picture today sir.

I am happy to hear that I'm not the only one who can eat the same thing for lunch every day. My husband mocks me incessantly about that fact.

I hate being disappointed by my food choices, so when I find something I love, I milk it for all it's worth.
