I went to bed for a nap tonight and had a dream that Chobani's was still open in Portage and I was shopping in there and the clerk said "if you spend two more dollars you get ten dollars off" or something like that so I bought a bunch of strawberries for about $2.49 and then I woke up.

Every time I want to read my book I refresh the forum first and... whatdoyaknow... new posts by our newest regular poster... and then I get stuck reading and responding for another 5 minutes... and then repeat the process...

Well that's it! I'm going to go read now!

It's delicious. I put a lot of vanilla sugar in it. It makes the cake so much better. Oh, and it has the form of a bear.

Ah no, I'm greatly underweight (50-55kg while I'm around 2 meter tall) and would probably be hospitalised if I'd fast. I'll fast from some other things though.

O, I remember now that orthonorm recommended lard sandwiches for you in Lent.

Still, you could have sprinkled ashes instead of vanilla sugar on your arktomorphic cake to share it with some poor Gregorian-calendar-abiding soul. 'Σποδὸν ὡσεὶ ἄρ(κ)τον ἔφαγον' καθὼς λέγει ὁ Ψαλμὀς.  :angel:

Eating only what you like and not mixing the stuff you like explains (at least partly) why you are underweight.

A bit of ἄρτος κακώσεως every now 'n Lent might just save you from yourself. It can be bear-shaped, if you like.  ;)

Taking out the trash for your wife is a cure for death too, although it only works temporarily. Now NOT taking out the thrash is a good cure for life  :)
