A new diet for traveling

My grandmother used to say: "If you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything."

I guess I've modified that over the past few weeks as it relates to blogging: "If you don't have something reasonably interesting...or at least amusing...to write, then don't write anything."

Odd thing is that I've been feeling kind of bloggy lately. Run down, lost my thyroid medicine, several IBS attacks and have not been in the gym for a few weeks. Just damn busy more than anything.

But I have a new source of motivation. I'm going to Costa Rica in mid-November and thinking of a new weight loss strategy: My plan is to drink all the beer I can while I'm down there. On the last day of my trip, I'm going to bottle some of the local water and bring it back home. Once home, I'll start rehydrating with the Costa Rican water and then the dysentary should be good for a 15-20 pound weight loss in short time.

Hmmm, maybe I should cover my bathroom with plastic first. (DWG Weight: 233 lbs.)

You don't want to go too far... You might get on a permanent weight loss program that will reduce you to just bones! Not much life after that! :) Enjoy your trip!

Why don't you just take numerous hallucinagenic drugs so you think your food is trying to kill you? That would work, because you'd be running away from the food as well as not eating it.

Finally! Someone who's tapped into "what would really work" for someone like me. You are the best, Uber. A genius, really. (Must be the fact that you have young kids that lets you tap into a mind like mine).

ubermilf, my new hero, might be onto something with her suggestion that you take numerous hallucinogenic drugs...i'd only meddle with such maternal guidance by proposing that if you dip your cup in the river close enough to its source, you may only need to drink but once from it...(i was going to say food for thought, but then remembered where I was and thought better of it)...pass that cup over here when you're done...

my advice is that you begin reading henry miller and don't stop until you've feel like you've shriveled up to the size of a raisin small enough to be stuffed into the belly of that cute little white guy with the hat who looks like he's taking a leak above and just to the right...yeah, that guy...

You know I thought the same thing that the little dough boy was taking a leak. Makes me want to go home and throw away that cookie dough :).

The Costa Rican diet sounds like my kinda diet though :)
