    All I will say is this: having an editor take you by the hand and, gently, for your own good, whapping the back of your knuckles while saying, "Don't do that!" is very very good.

    Ah.. yesterday picked up 4th White Key at Narcotics Anonymous to celebrate some drug related mad stuff. I was hugged to fook and am still full of the legendary 12 step serenity thing. Serenity is a bit like coke..costs loads, lasts five minutes and has a shite comedown..DON'T DO IT!!!

    @oldhat: giving up dairy doesn't necessarily mean giving up pizza! There are lots of non-dairy pseudo cheeses that apparently have the same texture and even melt the same as cheese (or so I hear. You can have my cheese when you can pry it from my cold dead hands). I'd also suggest going with almond milk instead of soy milk (unless you're allergic to almonds...). The texture is closer to skim than whole milk, but it has way less calories than either cow or soy if you go with unsweetened. Sweetened still has slightly less calories, but not as much. (We really need to bring the food thread back...)

    On topic: I started doing my week-nightly push-ups again. Already starting to feel the strength coming back into my arms. More 'last week' than 'today:' I've kept my promise to myself and started playing trombone again. Just 30 minutes or so once a week, but it feels good to know that I haven't forgotten EVERYTHING about how to play. But there's a lot of stuff I can remember in my head but lost the muscle memory for, and that'll take some time getting back again.

    @Oldhat, I've heard rice cheese is good for melting.

    Oh dear. I've just agreed to buy the following bit of gear from a friend:

    - Nikon D40 body + 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX
    - 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED AF-S DX VR-II
    - 35 mm f/1.8G AF-S DX
    - Nikon SB-400 flash
    - 52 and 72 mm circular polarizing filters, 52mm UV filter

    (For about 1000 dollars american.)

    Can't really afford, but I tried that out last summer and got hooked. WANT.
