Our traditional end-of-Lent buffet went reservations-only without telling us first.
We showed up at the place at 10AM *SHARP* and asked if we could go in and eat and they asked us if we had reservations. “You didn’t need reservations last year!”, we said. As if that meant something. They smiled and told us that they could get us in around 2:30PM.
I wanted to yell “I BEEN KICKED OUT OF BETTER BUFFETS THAN THIS ONE!” but, instead, we thanked them and left. As if that meant something.
So we went to the old-schooly bagel place that serves really high quality bagels and I got an Everything with jalapeño cream cheese, bacon, and scrambled eggs.
And it tasted *DIVINE*. All of the flavors melded and blended together perfectly. It was the *PERFECT* breaking of a fast.
And since we were near the East Coast Pizza joint, I also picked up a pizza for later in the day. (Happy sigh.)
While I am sure that I would have enjoyed that sandwich had I not fasted, I am certain that I wouldn’t have felt that it was luminous.
Anyway, my last weigh-in before Easter had me at having lost 8.2 pounds. I’m sure that at my weigh-in tomorrow, I’ll be somewhere around 7ish.
But it was worth it!
In similar news, this upcoming weekend is WrestleMania Weekend. Which means that we have to do all of our stuff on Friday night or Saturday because the entire second half of Sunday will be devoured by the Grandaddy of them all.
So that’s pretty much all that is going on. WrestleMania prep followed by WrestleMania itself and the associated WrestleMania Feast. And next week’s weigh-in will have me in the sixes.
So… what’s on your docket?
