Party Jitters.

Tonight is the company Christmas party. And while I’m sure I’ll have a wonderful time, I have to admit that I’m a little bit nervous about the whole thing, being my first social gathering with my new co-workers.

Will I drop a glass in the punch?

Will I sneeze on a waiter?

Will I pee myself?

Will I same something stupid?

Holiday office parties are always “interesting”, no matter who you are or where you work. I’m looking forward to it, but I have to admit I’m a little nervous.

Fiber! I Need More Fiber!

Having completely ignored my diet (and my health in general) for the past two weeks or so, I decided to do a little research on the internet today. First of all, I wanted to know what “empty calories” were. Actually, I know what they are, I just wanted some examples.

Apparently it’s everything I’ve eaten over the past two weeks, including my little addiction to Fast Break bars. That popped me out of my little sugar stupor.

The buzzword of the day is fiber. I need more beans. Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart… well, apparently they’re good for the whole body, not just the heart. According to this site, a high fiber diet may lower cholesterol, flush out some of the bad stuff and make taking a dump that much more pleasant. Sounds good to me. I guess it pays to know your shit.
