New calorie laws are actually making life more difficult for me

In case you didn’t know, NYC is cracking down on restaurants and trying to get them to provide calorie info. I find it crazy that fine dining establishments think they shouldn’t have to obey the rules. How exactly is it “comparing apples and oranges?” You and McDonalds both serve food. (Well, kind of… some McDonalds items don’t quite qualify as “food” in my mind, but they are at least something you put in your mouth and that some people would count as food). If the argument is that people come to fine dining restaurants for the atmosphere, then they’re probably …

Will Run for Tasti D

On Wednesday nights from 8-9 PM, I go down to the gym and watch Crowned on the elliptical. Crowned is a really cheesy and embarrassing reality show on the WB, so my only justification for watching is if I do it on the elliptical. However, tonight when I went down, all the ellipticals were taken. And I’m way too embarrassed to head over to the treadmill area, where the TVs are communal, and ask everyone there if they mind if I put it on one of the three overhead TVs (the TVs on the ellipticals are those fancy ones that …
