fear of fat?
A recent comment by frezzen got me thinking. I wrote an answer to the "monday mission" in which it asked if I ate breakfast, and I alluded to the fact that not edited 10:05EST thanks cactaur doing so would slow down my metabolism which would eventually cause me to become grossly obese, be even scarier than I am now, and that nobody would marry me.

A cursory reading of this would make one think that I am suggesting that people who are above "average" weight will not get married. This was not my intention in writing this, certainly. The point was, as little chance as I have now, it would be even lesser if I was to be "grossly obese."

Of course, this begs the question - what defines grossly obese? Well, the term gross is a term of measure, and it refers to the number 720 if I am not mistaken. So to be grossly obese, one would have to be either seven hundred and twenty pounds, or kilograms. Let's go with kilograms. Now, someone at my height being 200 pounds would be already fairly heavy set. Quite much more so at 300. At seven hundred and twenty kilograms, I think there is not much chance of an appeal.

The bottom line is that I was strictly referring to myself. There are many people who are heavier set who are quite attractive. I have dated some such people. It is not something I would suggest people strive for, out of concern for health, but in terms of aesthetics, I see no major issues, as it were.

Eating breakfast actually kick-starts your metabolism.

Re:

writing at five in the morning gets me to skip words.

like "not"

sentence was meant to read : "...I alluded to the fact that not doing so would slow down my metabolism......."

I know that about a week ago I was obese. Slightly. But guess what else I learned at the gyno? That's another LJ post.

Re:

Spiffy!

Glad to hear you have a new toy. Sounds quite fun, actually. Tee hee.

It *is* fun. So much fun. I'm quite easily amused. But that's a good thing. It has served me well in pulling me out of a slump many times.

Re:

you know what works for me? writing short stories or plays that get out how you're feeling. like that poem and play about smoking that i wrote recently. what did you think of the play by the way? I think out of all the people that commented, yours was one of the ones that i was hoping to (goo)bie there and alas, it wasn't. but that's okay. :)

I only write poetry when I'm in a Mood. I don't know how I get into a Mood, but it's usually a Really Bad Thing™.

It also happens to be really lousy poetry.

I saw the play. It was very cute. I thought it was great. I am thinking of passing it on to a friend who smokes, if that's okay with you.

Re:

it would be perfectly okay, of course as long as all of the appropriate rights and what not remain mine :) and credit is given, of course.

your poetry is good. i think when i get the literary journal together i will ask you to contribute.
batshua From: batshua Date: le 24 juin 2003 19:20 (UTC) (Lien)
Really?! Are you sure you aren't thinking of some other poet?
gordond From: gordond Date: le 24 juin 2003 21:08 (UTC) (Lien)

Re:

no i am thinking of you, batshua bas....

well, you know.

i sure don't. heck i just say 'batshua' in my tefilah and the appropriate request and hope He knows it's you.

^^

You like my poetry, eh?

Have you read all of it?

Even the dark stuff?

... someday I may show you the one really dark one I wrote. It is like an open wound.

Today your letter
came back in the mail. They said
insufficient postage.
Lies.

Okay, so it's not a perfect haiku. But it was on short notice!

Re:

i hate when that happens.

but on the other hand it must mean it will be a great letter!
batshua From: batshua Date: le 25 juin 2003 17:18 (UTC) (Lien)
If they give me trouble, I'll just pay a few extra cents.

But I know for a fact that it's under the weight limit. Maybe they're charging for being too bulky. In which case next time I'll be sure the contents don't shift.
