Day Pass and other things....

Last night I gave myself a day pass to drink some beer with friends at Zane Lamprey's Drinking Made Easy tour.  Om nom nom.  Abita's Purple Haze is delicious.  The show was hilarious!  I got myself a 72 oz. "Good Burp" mug, which will be living at work for my water.

But I think it served as a good farewell to drinking party -- end on a high note -- for a while until I make some real progress here.  I keep dancing over/under 200, and I'd like to say under 200.   Not drinking will definitely help me.

So as I'm sitting here writing this, I'm wearing my bikini.  Why?  I have no particular clue.  I think it's almost a rehearsal.  If I'm more comfortable wearing it around myself, the more bravado I'll have in my reserves for when I wear it in public (date TBD), just like practicing good eating habits at home make it easier to have good eating habits when I go out (the pizza I ate on my way home from the show was decidedly not a good choice, but sooo yummy).

So yeah... doot da do... last night I had some people kinda amazed that I have triceps.  Two words: Wii Boxing.  I know it's a silly video game, but there ya go.  They gave me triceps.  I'd love to take real boxing lessons, but I don't know how good that'd be for my back (all the torque) but man I wish I had found it before my injuries.

Foodwise, I think I've found the best items on the best way to navigate my favorite local Thai place.  My first step was to get away from my favorite meal:  Drunken Noodles (Choice of beef, chicken, pork or seafood sautéed with wide rice noodle, onions, tomatoes, basil leaves and sweet peppers in spicy garlic sauce).  So tasty, but so bad.  I moved on to the Sweet Melody (Choice of beef, chicken, pork or seafood sautéed with pineapple, tomatoes, cucumber, sweet peppers, scallions, onions in a sweet and sour sauce) in the Drunken Noodle garlic chili sauce instead of the sweet & sour sauce.  But my new plan of attack is to order off the appetizer menu.  Tricky, I know.

I have three options I'm currently loving:

  • Fresh Garden Rolls (Mixed vegetables, rice noodles, wrapped in rice paper served with special sauce and crushed peanut)
  • Fresh Mango Salad (Julienned fresh mango, red onions and cilantro tossed in a spicy lime dressing and sprinkled with crispy fried coconut)
  • Mixed Grilled Seafood (Shrimp, scallops, and squid on a skewer with pineapple and tomatoes)
