Dear Man On The Subway Who Told Me I Should Wear My Gloves Because There Were So Many Germans On The Train,

I’m 90% sure you meant germs.  Also, I’m a tad warmed by the fact that you felt the need to help me, even though I was originally annoyed by what you were saying.  I was especially touched when you said it was because I was alone and someone should be watching over me.  Thanks for that.  Next time: Also get the number of the hot guy next to me!  I hope there’s someone kind looking out for you too.  Stay lovely and generous with your love.

Avocado Pasta

I tried making pasta with a healthier sauce–so I picked one based on guacamole.  I know, I know.  Those of you who know me can’t believe I made myself pasta.  I was having a craving.  Anyway, here’s what you need to make what I did:

1 ripe avocado

1 tomato

Half an onion


Whole wheat pasta

Mozzarella Cheese (I used freshly made from whole milk)



Set up your pot to boil, put in your pasta.  While that’s going, blend everything except for the pasta and mozzarella together until satisfied.  I went for a super creamy consistency for easy mixing, but if you like chunks, I suggest baking your tomatoes and adding those after you blend the avocado.

After your pasta is done, mix your chopped up cheese and sauce.  You should get this:

avocado pastaI really enjoyed the pasta–it satisfied my craving, and the sauce was really creamy without being too heavy.  Om nom nom.  I suggest trying it out!

Week One Hundred And Forty-Three

Hello everyone!

Surprisingly. I lost 1.4 this week, bringing my grand total finally back to 81.4 pounds.  I’m really pleased with this, and I can honestly say it’s a relief.  After such a hard time losing weight and continuing to go down, I’m finally getting back on track.  The activity monitor that I’ve been wearing helps a lot.  It’s like a video game–I love being able to try to make it to base line.  In the past I’d be fine just sitting around doing nothing, but now I like to get up at least once an hour to get some green on my scale.

The real test will be if I lose next week.  Here’s to hoping I do!  Wishing you all the best!

Brian K. Vaughan

Whew–Let me tell you.  This series is hard to read on the subway, that’s for sure!  Nudity, violence, sexually-charged scenes–its very graphic and even made me blush a little.  At one point I even put it away because I was afraid someone else would see, haha.  Reader be warned!

Plot-wise, this volume kept up with the others.  I’m still waiting for those subway symbols to come back into play, but so far–nothing.  We did get a weird pot-dream though.  I want more!  I was pretty happy to see a bit more into Bradbury’s life.  He’s my second favorite character (after Kremlin) and I want to know more about him!
I don’t think this series has too many more volumes in it.  They’ve got to reveal more soon, right?  Though not as good as Y the Last Man, I’m still willing to recommend this series.  Just keep in mind the mature content!

Dear Man Praying On The Train,

I’m sorry I keep staring.  I promise I don’t have problems.  The careful way you’re holding your holy book and the rhythmic movement of your lips are mesmerizing.  I find myself wondering if you pray on the subway every morning, and how many times you’ve read through that book.  I wish you all the best.  It takes a certain kind of bravery to do what you’ve doing.
