    You the real MVP.
    Just made it to 11? Better send an updated resume. PM me your new plans? I know a lot of people in this town. Would love to be able to help.

    I had the Pop Tarts this morning. Yes, toasted or at least warmed up. My ban on sweets was in my home(yes, these broke that ban.) Like luburch, I found myself all to often with "leftover" cake, cookies, or candy in the home. And I would consume it at all hours of the day. Pre-breakfast, as breakfast, mid-day snack on weekends, and late night pre-bed hunger pangs satisfier. Ice cream in particular somehow always ended up in my freezer. Not sure how it got there, truly a mystery, but I'm not one to leave food to waste. (Well, maybe brussel sprouts, but luckily those haven't invaded my home in some time). So, avoiding those random late night predations and more consistent eating on weekends has aided my waist line. I still have a candy bar at work several times a week. What I am a bit bothered by is that my soda intake has gone up. I mainly drink diet sodas, so the artificial sweeteners appear to be part of my body's compensation for the missing sweets.

    Congrats, you will get the Eleven Sporkz Club paperwork in the mail. As Treasurer, just sent the initiation fee to me.



    Yup, put it on about 2 1/2 hours ago. 14.4 pounds before trimming. Not sure if it will be lunch or dinner tomorrow. At 1 - 1.5 or so hours per pound, big variance.

    Of course, given that you are in Texas, I gotta warn that BBQ pork butts are more comfortable for me. Brisket is less forgiving and still working on it. So, no promises.

    Trust me, you'll be disappointed. It's what I do.

    Playing a few events in the WSOP at the Rio, schedule permitting.

    Oooh, you fancy.

    I actually went to some of the minor events to peek in here and there once. Ate there (@ Rio), and it was interesting hearing people at other tables talking about the side games. Doyle Brunson was 2 tables away discussing some.

    Besides, I can put down the time I spend meeting you as business development.

    All kidding aside, I found that trying some of the flavored sparkling waters, unsweetened but in the sweeter flavors, say cherry, raspberry helped enormously. Takes a while, sure, but grab one of those when those afternoon pangs hit and it might fake your brain out.

    I'll let you know, right now I have a hearing that may derail my plans. You know how that goes.

    I found a mineral water I liked (Pellegrino) and drink the fool out of it. The carbonation satisfies my taste for something zippy.

    Have not had a soda in four months, and I used to drink at least three diet Cokes a work day.

    Oooh a hearing in my hood? What the heck do you have going on out here?

    And as for sparkling water... no. I had cut out soda for several years, but now have it on occasion. Sparkling water doesn't do anything for me. If there's fizz, it needs to be soda or champs.
