Know how you know it's a slow news day? Yeah, when you read this post because everything on the internet is FUCKING BORING today. Anyway, keep in mind I'm operating under the assumption that we all agree that dieters are annoying, but dieters who write stories about their food diaries and how much they are suffffering are the annoyingmost. (Seriously, If we really wanted to hear your self-disciporn, don't you think we'd be dieting ourselves? Yeah, that's right, we'd like to be thinner, but we'd rather be fat and capable of thinking about things other than whether that hunger we are feeling is really hunger, or just appetite, or whether any of those pangs you thought were hunger before, were just straight-up pangs of First World greed, and this is what it felt like to endure Stalin-era rationing, or maybe your stomach is simply shrinking....actually it's your brain) Anyway, someone is blogging her diet on the Huffington Post right now. (She skips a cocktail and contemplates eating watermelon under her desk so no one will see her ingest sugar, but resists! It's monklike, really.)
Meanwhile, the New York Times, hot off the internet sensation that was the "Migraine Diet," allowed some other lady to fill a whole 1,200 words talking about her "philosophy" of eating fattening foods in "moderation" and weighing her self every day to keep her weight under control. Bold!!!!
