Thoughts: I’ve got to hustle and finish my costume for tonight, so this will be a short one. 🙂 I went out last night for dinner, stuck with a very tasty and not too off-plan Moroccan salad (romaine, chicken breast, almonds, raisins, bananas, and a curry dressing) at the White Wolf Cafe, and saw a live production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show put on by the Downtown Theater. The female singers in the show were amazing. I wish I had their voices! It was my first experience with Rocky Horror, and I had a great time even though I wasn’t quite sure what was going on half the time. I’m told that I really need to see the movie.
I’m still finishing up the BFFM book this week–all of this stationary bike time is giving me plenty of opportunity to read–and am now toying with the idea of carb cycling. I tend to do it a bit naturally anyhow with free day since my carb intake always shoots through the roof on Saturdays.
