Brain Crumbs

I used to have a sideblog for one-offs, riffs and links, now that’s what Facebook is for. However, here are some things I picked up on, realized, or thought about over my trip to Indiana last week.

  • The first thing is one I’ve always wondered about: Why is the Yellow Freight Company’s logo orange?
  • I saw a big billboard with a bald eagle and American flag that said “America – Bless God”. This doesn’t make any sense. America can’t bless God because God is from whom all blessings flow. The top 3 hits for the phrase could generate no end of cultural criticism writing. I could go on, and would really like to, but I’ll spare everyone.
  • It took over a year, but I’ve now trained myself both physically and psychologically to eat smaller portion sizes. That means, on the occasions that I pig out, I’m actually just eating what Americans consider to be normal portions. My weight fluctuates between 178 & 182, and since whenever I try to dip below that, my appetite goes into overdrive, I figure that’s right where my body wants to be.
  • Picked up this sweet piece of furniture for $70:

Where Did the Weight Go?

Wednesday, 22 January 2003

i don’t put on weight very well, so this is of utmost import. since the end of last semester i have gained 10 pounds. i am now a 6’2″ 170 pounder. the only problem is that i cannot figure out where it went. my proportions are all the same, i still don’t have a hind end, but perhaps it isn’t quite so easy to see my ribs (and my heartbeat) any more. if i put on 10 more pounds i’ll be right where i want to be weightwise. perhaps it is all of the Subway sandwiches i eat. I don’t know how Jared lost weight eating subways. I’d think regularly eating footlong subway melts or steak and cheese subs with double meat double cheese and extra sauce would make you gain weight not lose it. hell it guess its worked for me.
