     Lots of sex, dark chocolate and the Scandinavian routine of cold meat for
     breakfast are the best ways to boost brain power, a new book claims.

A good day, though not nearly enough walking. Bagels and smoked salmon (huge thanks to Callie and Naomi for the latter) for lunch. But really -- a sugar rush from two gluten-free bagels? Okay then.

I drove by the new office -- it's a nice location, and walking distance from the bike trail along the Guadalupe River. Probably noisy, being so close to the airport. We'll see. May have to get noise-cancelling headphones.

I moved my rolling toolbox from the office to the bedroom, a bit of decluttering I'd been meaning to do for months. Recycled a foot-high stack of magazines in the process. And moved Coke boxes in the sewing room. Still lots to do in all three places.

Actually noticed being contented after dinner. Go me!

Following Colleen's suggestion of Sex and Chocolate for TGl, I turned up a couple of fascinating links (under the cut; some distinctly NSFW). More hot links as well.

No. At least, no at any time I'm on the premises; you can sing it with Callie as Short-Tempered Glass if you like. It's not that I think it's a bad song, it's that I blush when I am in the audience for it; I'm not about to inflict it upon myself on stage. :)

Oh, well. We have plenty of other songs to work on, after all.

One-half of a bagel is two exchanges, a whole bagel is four exchanges. Two bagels: eight exchanges, or 120 grams of carbohydrates.
Gluten-free only means that the product is not made from wheat. Some substitutions, like rice flour, are actually higher in carbohydrates than wheat products.

RE: vitamin D: they started fortifying milk when millions of people in the U.S. came to the cities for office jobs, and had diseases never seen before in an agrarian, outdoor workforce. And with sunscreens, even folks who work outside can still have vitamin D deficiencies. Because it builds up in the system, folks are reluctant to supplement, though.

I really need to read up on diet stuff, don't I? Just trying to stay "low carb" doesn't quite cut it.

Heh. I myself, might have eaten the two bagels anyway, if they were nummy.

They were -- it's been a long time since I had them. (And even then, it wasn't a real one -- gluten free is a poor substitute.)

The one I had tonight doesn't seem to have been too bad. But I'm guessing I'll only have one every couple of weeks from now on.

After reading the Kai Hubbard interview, I'm wondering what stuff the production companies behind the various UK shows get up to that we don't know about... :(

Sorry, mistyped, should be Kai Hibbard. D'oh!
