Note to self:

I should know by now. I need red meat in my diet. I know there are people out there who do just fine on vegies and nuts and getting their protein and iron from alternative sources, but I am not one of them. I have found, particularly at certain times of the month, that red meat at least twice a week gives me a boost like nothing else does. I'm slightly anaemic but not dangerously so, it's been that way all my life, and taking pills has never changed it. It's just my natural state and as long as I keep up with the red meat, I'm fine.

So what does Tats do? Forget on a regular basis. After a week with no red meat, I get just a little brain-sludgy, and just a little uncoordinated. Things like yesterday's stack off my skates result from this slight off-kilterness. Skating home was a bad idea, in that 'doo doo doo lalala, didn't see that pothole oops why am I on my face?' kind of way. So yeah, at least I missed the bits that got damaged on the way in, and evened it out a bit on the way home.

In other news, it must be weird being a car salesman. I watched a guy this morning, dressed in a suit and tie that would not be out of place in the business district, towelling the moisture off cars, mincing around and trying hard to keep the car goop off his clothes. It's a blue collar job that you have to wear a white collar for. WTF?

Check-in time: Are you enjoying yourself? I am.

[EDIT] Hahahahaaa! So the government schedules a roundtable of international experts on effective drug policy, and Jim Anderton fails to show up for it! tenchinage has something to say about that.
