Starbuck's Perfect Oatmeal

I find it extremely ironic that Starbucks is the only international chain with a drive thru where you can order plain unsweetened oatmeal ( in about a 140 calorie portion) for $2.45 a cup in the states and get sliced nuts and dried fruit on the side ( they will also give you a small bag of poison, I mean brown sugar, but skip that, you don't need it and it's very non macro).

Now I previously blogged on the evils of the drive thru... but this is almost an acceptable macro alternative...

A Positive Swimsuit Shopping Experience….

Okay really…...Swimsuit shopping is demoralizing as hell even from my honest brown rice induced macrobiotic perspective..

So I went to get a new swimsuit this weekend, and I thought (stupidly) hey I can wear a size 2 jeans now….. this should be fun…. I mean…. The crunches are paying off… I’ve almost got the four pack back ( I never had a six pack, even when I was a gymnast, so the four pack is good) I weigh less than I did in high school, so this should really be a treat right????...

Good Friends

"What is a good friend? We can easily find a definition of the word 'friend' in the dictionary, but I would like to think about it in Buddhist terms. Nichiren Daishonin states,
"Therefore, the best way to attain Buddhahood is to encounter a good friend. How far can our own wisdom take us?
... In Nichiren Buddhism, the term 'friend' is translated from the Japanese Chi Shiki which literally means 'knowledge'. ... Traditionally, Buddhism was transmitted not by documents or books but...

Don't judge a book by it's cover

Ever pick up a book, the cover is old, worn, maybe out of shape, or misshappened a bit? but then you read the opening credits, decided that it sounded like a pretty good book, read the book from cover to cover, maybe more than once, and you know the story by heart after reading it so many times, and then decided..."Hey that's a pretty darn good book, even if the cover is kinda worn!"

Sometimes I think this is the same with people, the outside of someone may not be what your

Tired of the Drama too...

I am also tired of the drama too.
I came online a few years ago to have fun and make online friends.
I think I may judged some people too hastily and have made assumptions about them, which I now know, are wrong. I admit that and apologize for doing that.
When I am wrong about something, I will say I'm wrong.
I value my online friends very,very, highly.
I also wanted to say that I really appreciate Dirk, Tracy, Dawg, Warrior and Mrs. Spooky for making DBC a fun and
