(sigh) – I’ve really debated this over and over with myself, and I have finally come to the conclusion, unpopular around here though it may be, that I Am Having Cereal For Dinner.

It really worries me that many commenters and posters in these environs will just take the easy way out and order pizza or something, but people - it’s not sustainable.  It’s just not a positive thing to do for the future.  Not for yourselves, not for the community.  I know it’s easy to just pick up the phone like that, but come on, be honest with yourselves: that’s a cop out.

No, I’m taking the high road.  Because I want to sleep at night.  I simply refuse to load up with the fat and salt.  Not anymore.  At least not tonight.  I may come back to pizza delivery.  I’m not saying any of this is set in stone, like it’s some kind of permanent lifestyle change.  But right now, I feel this is right for me, and I hope the community will understand.  My cholesterol came back 203 last time, and I need to cool it for now on the high-fat foods.

Did you know that many – nay, most – cereals are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals?  Where will you get Vitamin C from your pizza?  Where??  Don’t tell me tomatoes.  It’s cooked.  It’s all cooked.  Good luck with that.

Another debate I’ve been having with myself – and you will want to know, because the random idiosyncracies and vacillations of my mind are no doubt of tremendous interest to everybody – is whether to bite or file.  After much thought, I intend to keep biting my nails, and not filing them.  Here I am indeed taking the easy way out – I will grant you that.  But what are the consequences, really?  Will you stare at my hands?  Will you think less of me?  Must I go and get a manicure for people around here to treat me as a HUMAN BEING??!!

I’m really sorry.  Let me compose myself for a final thought.

There is one thing that I will never change my stance on, and that is the direction that the toilet paper is rolled.  It will be over the top, god dammit.  I don't care if you flame me, falme me, ban me, pwn3 me, whatever you want to do.  There are such things as principles, you know.  Who rolls it underneath?  Probably the teabaggers.  

I’m glad I was able to edify you with my profound ruminations.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
