Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

And since I combined Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, I ended up with Fat Ash Wednesday, and it's correctly descriptive.

So, when Star and I were chugging around Wilderness Park yesterday I made a rather bold statement. NO:

1. Chicken Wings until after Umstead (March 26 - 27).
2. No Hamburgers until after Umstead.
and 3. No, gulp, French Fries until after Umstead.

Yoikes! The burgers, that's no problem, even though burgers are unlike dogs, and my students (you really can't beat a burger!); I rarely eat burgers; the problem areas are French Fries, they have good ones at the school cafe, they are only $1, and I don't always bring enough lunch from home and the Chicken wings. I eat chicken wings about 1.7 times a week, which is about 3 times more than I should. Here's the thing, I love chicken wings. Garsh they are yummy.

But I'm going to do it, I know I am, heck I have to. I really don't want to be DFL at Umstead, I'd rather by DM (dead middle).

Let's see if I can turn my Fat Ash into a Thin whatever!

If it would help, I'll lend you our copy of Food, Inc. The numerous scenes of dead chickens and cow carcasses would be enough to gross you out for at least another month!

I'm giving up alcoholic beverages and sweets. No easy thing for me. Good luck.

Star asked me if I was going to give up beer. "Are you crazy? Why would I do that? I'm not going to give up sleeping or breathing either!" I'm only giving up the things that are bad for me. Well, the world wouldn't like it if I gave up beer, think the Hulk with better breath.

I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing
