Shangri-La Day 3 and other geek stuff

Day three.

Last night, I had pizza for dinner. Does preprocessed food give you a stomach ache on this diet? It’s happened twice thus far. First, when I had a burger from a place in Seattle. The second is making a take-and-bake pizza and eating it. Each time I’ve just felt, well, for lack of a better term…gross. It wasn’t appetising at all.

Today though, I went to Trader Joe’s and got some good stuff to have for lunches at the office. This is twofold! I don’t spend money on eating out every day, AND I can eat more healthy things! Why didn’t I do this before? I had some carrots, some celery with peanut butter, and a Promax bar. I was stuffed. I can’t remember a time in my life when I had that little and been totally full. It was great! I got some of those chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzels that I love so much. None were eaten. I didn’t want them at all. Amazing!

In other news, I’m currently downloading the Windows Vista RC1 image. I love my cable connection. 7 Megabits a second (yeah, you’re right Toby!). Glorious. I need a distraction from the company builder (the one that builds our software). I’ve been charged with revamping it to be able to support more options. Multiple Products and different source trees. Given the nature of the original builder, it wasn’t an easy task. Hopefully it’ll be done tomorrow.



  1. Your cable connection is *way* faster than 700Kbps. That bottleneck is probably from the sources upload ( Your cable download is in the several MB range.

  2. BTW, I think there is something in the air, because almost everything I’ve eaten lately has given me a stomach ache… and, I’m also eating very healthy right now too.

    We better watch out, or we’ll wither away in skinny-ness. Heheheh… 😉

  3. Yeah, it was supposed to be 7 megabits/second. That is, unless, I have no idea what I’m talking about! That’s a definite possibility!

  4. “Definite Possibility” – Is that like a probable improbability? 😉
