Anya Christina Emmanuella Jenkins. Twenty years old. Born on the fourth of July — and don't think there weren't jokes about that my whole life, mister, 'cause there were. 'Who's our little patriot?' they'd say, when I was younger and therefore smaller and shorter than I am now.

Just call me "Siouxsie Shunshine".

I am not aided by a lifetime of dieting, since I now have the metabolism of a tranquilized tree sloth.

I'm telling that to my Doc at my next appointment.

since I now have the metabolism of a tranquilized tree sloth.

Ahahah. Yes, me too. Actually, I know it'd be better if I just ate more, and more frequently (as backwards as that sounds.) I mean, I ate 3 whole meals a day, including heart-attack-with-a-kick cheese rellenos, cheesy enchiladas, chile cheesburgers, cranberry-nut "bread" (really, more cakey, ) banana bread, cheesecake, assorted adulterated nuts, chorizo, egg and cheese burritos, tamales, ham and lots of wine for about a week....and I dropped 5 lbs.

But that's...work and effort in my day-to-day.

And now I really want a genuine NM relleno. Damnit.

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story. Tell me a story.

I'm edging back to Wanting To Die land

How long have you had the cold, Shrift? Having very recently recovered from the Death Cold I can promise that it does end.

I'm trying really, really hard to avoid high fructose corn syrup.

Me too. Now I need to get into the habit of eating healthy stuff instead of eating nothing until late in the day when I'm starving and headachey. Which reminds me... I have no food in my home. I should hit the grocery store today.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I should be going to the library and the grocery store.

I used to have an awesome metabolism. I could eat anything! Large pizza? Get in my belly! Beer? Yes, please! Fried cheese? NOM NOM NOM.

Then my metabolism crashed and burned sometime after 25, and I'm still trying to figure out how to eat so that I don't gain weight just by thinking about chocolate.

It was like I woke up one morning and my metabolism had decided to quit. Now I have to take 2 meds daily for hypothyroidism and they don't seem to help.

Just so you know, it happens again sometime between 35 and 40.

Apparently if you're enough of a power nerd, there is nothing that cannot be flowcharted.

10,000?
