What are you EATING right now?


Recommended Posts

short version:


went on a buddhist retreat last weekend.  Haven't had meat since.  I'm sure I will again, just not right now?

That sounds interesting.

I just signed up for a study on Trascendental Meditation with our academic affiliate next door. They plan on teaching doctors TM to see if it can reduce burnout and improve quality of life. Funny thing is, I may not qualify for the study, because I don't have the required 1 1/2 hours free time in each of the four days needed to get the orientation to the TM class. Oh well.

Cool! I like Thich Nhat Hanh. Read a bunch of his books, saw him give a lecture once. Though I couldn't hear a word he said, since he was so soft spoken, and the large hall wasn't properly amplified.

Were you up here, though? We should've given you a proper HC Chicago visit! Though admittedly, our usual HC visits are not very meditative. Well, I guess they are, but not in that way. Eh, I probably couldn't have gotten away from kid activities and work this weekend, any way, so I shouldn't even talk. But I hope you had a great visit! That was my old 'hood from my college days!

Edit: Looks like it was in WI. That looks like something Anne would have liked! Thanks, I'll have to tell her about that. Maybe if they do that some time again in the future. Did you have a good experience?

Edit2: Dodgeville looks very close to where we spent a late anniversary weekend a few weekends ago. Nice area! I hope you were able to drive through New Glarus for some sausage and beer!

When I die, I want to be reincarnated as Colin's metabolism.

It's just not right.

...and constitution.  I've been trying different tomatillos ever since that burrito in San Fran, and all of the ones I've tried so far have been upsetting mah stomach, although that one didn't at all.  Need to figure out which ingredient is doing this to me.

Geezin' fucking sucks, man.

Damn, is this a food trip? What a great trip you're having!

The general plan is walk around and see as much as possible, and same for food. The food is easier to get photographs of which show what I'm feeling, rather than a snapshot of the city. I envy people like Peter and Jeff who have the skill to take amazing photos that convey the emotion of a location.
