That’s the second twisted Corona bottle I bought during my trip to Mexico back in 2004. The first one broke approximately 5 minutes after I purchased it. I also learned, during that episode, that the bottle is filled with colored water, despite being priced as if it were filled with real beer.
I’m still eating as much as I possibly can each and every day. I learned, upon weighing myself at the gym today, that I’m now 178 lbs. That means I’ve gained over 8 lbs in the past 7 days. Solid food really does make all the difference. So if anybody out there is trying to lose weight fast, remember: Go liquid! ® (Perhaps I should trademark that phrase…)
I have big news today: I have officially drank my last can of Ensure, possibly forever! I converted the last few empty cans into a couple of extra levels for The Fortress of Ensure, which can now be seen from across the office since it has risen to heights so great that the cubicle walls can no longer contain it. My workmates told me I should have been sponsored by Ensure throughout this entire ordeal.
I’d like to take a moment to send my best wishes to two ladies who are joining the jaw surgery club: Lauren, who is going in for the operation today, and Kimmy, who had the procedure performed yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you. Think positive!
I’ll depart today with a random story from my job. The building I work in is three storeys high. I work on the second level. Today, I had to run up to the third floor to pick something up from our lab team. I had previously assumed this floor was completely empty, sans the lab personel and our coveted ping pong table. But guess what: There are almost 15 people working up there–an entire team! I’ve been working in this building for 40 hours per week over the past 5 months, and never was I aware we had an entire group of people residing upstairs! After hearing my story about jaw surgery, one of the guys suggested I concoct a tale about my cage fighting from days gone by. Since I’m completely on board with that idea, that will now be my primary “reason” for electing to have double jaw surgery.
