Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two


nephandi is in town. He has some goals while visiting, and one of them is carnitas. Surely this is one of the most delicious pig-based products there is, and that's really saying something because basically, nothing is as delicious as pig-based products. Sometimes, secretly, I think really good carnitas might even be better than bacon. (Bad carnitas are definitely not, so bacon scores major points for always being good.)

So Project: Captain America has been going swimmingly, and I've been very good about eating properly and exercising, and the results have been both immediate and gratifying. Since Christmas (basically) I've already lost ten pounds. I know that I won't be able to sustain that rate of change, but that's okay - I'm in this for the long haul. And being in it for the long haul means that it has to be okay to have occasional indulgences (of a gustatory, and not Papal, nature), otherwise I can't sustain the effort since I'll have little to look forward to.

So all that means, taken together is - I get to make delicious carnitas, hang out with my good friend nephandi and actually EAT said delicious carnitas. If ever I doubt that there's a benevolent creator that has made space for joy in the world (a pretty small space, given the prevalence of truly dreadful parasites and whatnot, but still, space!) I need only think about beer, friends, and delicious pig-based foods.
