I'm-a trying to write, but nothing happens
This is a fabulous piece on social patterns in online interactions. Very BTDT. Go read.

A very fine visit with tamago and friends today. Now supposedly working on essay. Words produced so far: zero. :-P

khajja_meezer tells me the washer malfunction is getting worse. Looks like I'm covered by the Maytag Neptune class action suit, but damn. Will try calling them tomorrow to see if I can get someone out to fix the damned thing.


Boring food entry:

3 eggs, 3 pieces bacon

2 In-n-out double meat burgers with onions, protein style. (I would never have tried Atkins if forkmonkey hadn't clued me into "protein style" at In-n-out. Thanks, man.)

Cobb salad and coffee at the Peninsula Creamery.

Breve latte, coffee, spicy maya hot chocolate (incredible stuff), shortbread (sigh), wilted spinach salad (very tasty) at Coupa Cafe. Must figure out how to deal with stress without consuming sugar.

Slice of homemade (by elflet) bread with Irish butter. Yummmm.

Current Mood: grrrrr

Protein style?? Is that without the bun? If they can do it without the bun, my life would be much happier. When you go through the drive-thru, do you just ask for what you want, protein style? If so, I'm getting my burgers from them in said manner from now on.

Yep, wrapped in lettuce, no bread.

Carl's Junior has a decent "low carb 6$ burger" (which is really about three bucks). I've only had it twice, but both times the lettuce that they wrap the burger in was crisp and fresh, much better tasting than the crap that they use on their side salads. Oh, and if you order it in a combo, you can get a side salad (albiet, not a really tasty one) instead of fries, which is a trend I wish more fast food joints would start.

I knew about the burger but not about the combo. Very cool!

Interesting article. Definitely BTDT.
