For those who are trying to keep up with the Jones', here is some aftermath from previous posts.
Back in March I was experimenting with a sugar reduction in my diet. I made a point to run completely out of cool-aid and snacks over a weekend so that I started a Monday morning with no sugar in the house. Boy oh boy did that make me grumpy. Mega grumpy. Probably the worst Monday since moving to Montana. I could not wait to get out of the office that afternoon and high tail it to the store for sugary goodness.
I'm still drinking cool-aid copiously. I haven't had any high fructose pop in the house since then (I've had some at restaurants). I am eating more salads, getting regular exercise, perhaps those extra calories from sugar aren't so bad if it keeps me even tempered.
I have on a couple occasions bemoaned a lack of ethnic food.
Let me just say that the Dos Amigos restaurant in Whitefish has some pretty good Mexican food. The Chinese place down the road from there is not too bad, but not really worth making the drive for.
The chance encounter has not been heard from since. Probably a good thing. I would like to give her bra back though.
And for anyone who has been with me since the start of this blog, you will be pleased to know that I am not farting so much anymore.
