You deserve a break today...

First of all, Happy New Year, everyone!

I never make resolutions for the New Year. There are always things I resolve to do, such as lose weight, be happier, read more books, watch less TV, learn the electric slide, etc., but they're with me all the time. I don't need no stinkin' New Year to make a list of what changes I need to implement!

So one of my general goals has always been to exercise more, and I'm happy to say that this weekend will be the first anniversary of my involvement with kung fu. MORE CHI! It's unbelieveable how far I've come with respect to kung fu and life in this past year, and I truly believe it'll be a part of me for a long, long time. TRAIN HARDER!

This afternoon I also called up my doctor for a follow-up on some blood work I had done last week. Everything's looking good -- my cholesterol count was much improved -- a stellar 148mg/dL (<200 mg/dL is considered optimal).

So, what did I do just now in my quest for lunch? I wandered around my office building for a bit, craving really nothing in particular, till those evil golden arches caught my eye. And, I said to myself, Dammit, 'playa, you deserve a break today at McDonald's... (and I sang it, too).

EVIL!!!! I can't remember the last time I had McJunko's!

And, now as I'm sitting here, enjoying my pathetic excuse for a cheeseburger and fries (with no added salt, at least!), I realized why McDonald's snuck back into my brain...I blame this awesome list of The 50 Greatest Commercials of the '80s that I checked out this past weekend, specifically, this gem:

Yes, indeedy-do, that is a twenty-something year old Jason Alexander aka George Costanza from Seinfeld all decked out shilling those environmentally horrific styrofoam nightmares that housed the short-lived McDLT.

After scarfing down this McCrappy meal, I think that'll be it for a while (till at least 2008, anyway). Since when did McDonald's start putting the Nutrition Facts on its products?!?!

McDonald's Fries

380 Calories? 20g of fat? for the fries alone? Argh! I think I'm gonna crawl under my desk and take a nap now...
