When you are dieting and feel hungry, don't eat. Instead, drink water until you fill your stomach. The feeling of fullness removes (most of the) desire to eat.
This is a bad idea to do regularly, and is a classic behavior of someone with an eating disorder. Eat healthy food (e.g. vegetables) instead of a burger and fries when you feel hungry.
When the renewal comes up and they CHANGE the contract...
Oracle: Pray I don't alter it any further...
Doesn't LA have an hourly death toll? Iunno, I live up north in the woods. Last murder here was 1982. >.>
You mean the last *documented* murder, perhaps? In L.A. if something goes down I have a solid chance of getting away into a crowd or finding help, or someone at least finding my body. I can hear the banjos from here, boy!
* Coincidentally, Google Maps will navigate you to the reservoir in the middle of central park if you search for "Manhattan", and to the Executive Office of New York City at 280 Broadway if you search for "New York," "New York City," or "NYC."
There are few people more annoying than those who try to justify recreational drug use with claimed self-medication benefits. Just admit you like getting stoned. I don't kid myself that getting drunk is some serious health exercise, I just enjoy it.
In *many* cases marijuana will cause its user to become stoned, but there are a lot of people like my wife where it doesn't have that effect or it is greatly reduced. Its anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects should definitely not be discounted, especially with the lack of serious side effects compared to more traditional medications intended to treat those conditions. I'm not saying people under the influence of MJ should be allowed to drive any more than those under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, but you shouldn't be so quick to judge other peoples' situations. She and I would love nothing more than to never have to buy more of it just for her to lead a normal life.
Oh, and keep a set of working clothes at the office just in case you have to do some work on a day you need to dress up.
This. My day could consist of meeting with a fortune 100 CEO to talk about proposals and payment terms in the morning and installing a projector in a soffit that afternoon. I keep a suit, business casual outfit and construction site clothes at work just in case I get any surprises in the morning or spill gravy on my crotch at lunch. Don't forget deodorant and a toothbrush either.
