Tonight is the end of the fast. It was a freaky experience, the whole thing. The novelty was interesting; it wasn't as impossible as I'd expected (it was even a relief to not have to think endlessly about What to Eat Next); I have some new tools for eating less (boullion is yummy!); and for the first time in about two months I'm looking forward to my Monday weigh-in. Also: to breakfast. I bought some Raisin Bran Crunch, the beautiful love child of Frosted Flakes and Raisin Bran.
I think six days was my limit: this morning (the seventh) my muscles felt weak and weird, and I didn't feel enthusiastic about the idea anymore. And Erica did TEN days, and she didn't do any messing around with modifications like I did. Plus, tomorrow I'm going to be eating a pan of brownies with an experimental peppermint glaze, and Erica is going to be having surgery. So I'd say I got the way easier end of this, just sort of across the board.
Speaking of who gets it easier, I have been seeing some magazine headlines that are cheesing me off. US Weekly says "A-Rod's Wife: Destroyed by Madonna." People magazine says "Madonna's Mess: Did She Bust Up A-Rod's Marriage?" Do you know who is responsible for busting up A-Rod's marriage, if he had an affair with Madonna? A-Rod. Certainly I can see why A-Rod's wife would be pissed with Madonna---but if we're talking about responsibility, A-Rod's marriage contract is A-Rod's responsibility, not Madonna's.
Angelina Jolie is always getting that kind of crap, too, and I wonder why BRAD PITT doesn't get 100% of that crap? Angelina Jolie didn't make a binding legal and romantic contract with Jennifer Aniston, BRAD PITT did. Angelina Jolie didn't leave Jennifer Aniston for someone else, BRAD PITT did. If we are wondering if anything Happened before the end of the marriage, the person who should be getting Eyes of Suspicion is the one bound by the terms of that marriage, namely BRAD PITT. Can I use their full names a few more times? ANGELINA JOLIE BRAD PITT JENNIFER ANISTON.
