carb spotting




Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. 
Choose a freaking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, treadmills and tins of tuna. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose high-fat low-carb. Choose a steak. Choose your friends. Chose cauliflower. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of flattering fatty fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing junk food into your mouth.  Choose your future. Choose life . . . But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life: I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. 
Who needs reasons when you've got junk food?

  5. Well... don't *I* feel like a neanderthal.

    I was all set to try to encourage you from your obvious funk... and saw the link to that movie clip. Duh... I never saw the movie, so didn't get the connection. I'll just take everyone's word for it how witty this post is. Not hard, since you usually ARE witty and clever with these things, LOL!
