Happy In Bag

Wednesday, February 07, 2007


I'm fat. I drink beer and I eat whatever I want, whenever I want it. Here's what I ate at a Waffle House yesterday- a waffle with butter and syrup, two sausage patties, two eggs over easy, two slices of toast with butter and jelly, and a bowl of grits. And I was still hungry when I finished the delicious meal. The most difficult part of reforming would be curbing this gluttony. With Lent looming, it's time to at least consider a change. I'm not so big that a personal trainer couldn't whip me into shape in ninety days. Any volunteers?

I only spotted six confirmed Happy In Bag readers last night at the Record Bar, but I figure that there were at least that many of you there that I didn't know. It was hard to maneuver through the capacity crowd for Camera Obscura. While I wasn't expecting Fall Out Boy, the Scots weren't just dour. They were sour-tempered grumps. Lovely songs, though.

    I already know what I'm giving up for Lent this year.

    Same as every year.

    I'm giving up Moderation.

    Is that the Front street WH?

    They're everywhere, as you know, Panos, but this one is off I-29 in Platte City, just north of KCI. I like watching the dynamic between the great waitress and the surly (but proficient) fry cook there.

    I gave up moderation at age 13, XO. It's a bit of an "issue" for me.
