low carb thickburger

yeah, this makes my stomach churn.


i took this photo at a rest stop in indiana.

as if that weren't enough, get a load of this:

"in Escondido, Calif., John Pontrelli, owner of Pit Stop Pasta, offers what may be a traditionalist's worst nightmare: "pizza in a bucket." It has all the pizza toppings placed in a crock or, for takeout customers, a metal can." (via theolympian.com)

now, here's what the wall street journal says about dr. atkins:
"the medical report listed Atkins' weight at the time of his death as 258 pounds. The 6-foot-tall Atkins would have been considered obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's body-mass index calculator."

The newspaper also said Atkins had a history of heart disease and heart attacks.

What happened to the good old food pyramid that served us so well?

i'm still eating carbs, dammit. i refuse to eat my pizza from a bucket.

stranger than fiction.

tonight, at dinner at the lula cafe (which by the way was excellent and i highly recommend), my boyfriend got a massage from a stranger (also a customer at the lula cafe). this stranger was a man who may, or may not, have been italian or mediterranean of some sort. apparently this man was 'registered'. he did not say in what.

my boyfriend described this man as having 'some sort of tentacles'.

i can't decide how this makes me feel.

that is all for now.

are they insulted?

so, i'm in my car on friday afternoon and i'm listening to npr and there's this interview with a woman from roanoke, va who is the creative director of this ballet company who is creating this nascar ballet.

apparently this 'ballet' involves dancers in form-fitting leotards emblazoned with the logos of the production's sponsors careening around a banked racetrack/dancefloor complete with a pit and pit crew in case of the unlikely 'accident'. to keep the audience's attention, there will be three video screens above the stage, each displaying different footage - some of actual nascar races!

i'm dying to know what the nascar people think of this.

do you think they'll start having gerhard richter and ed paschke paint their cars? i might be convinced to start watching nascar, if only for a few minutes.
