weight loss slowed down

In the last week my spectacular weight loss results have slowed down. I know that this is normal, but it’s still frustrating.

Breakfast today was a few pieces of melba toast and decaf coffee. Nothing fun.
Lunch will be sauteed shrimp and broccoli.
Dinner will be something nutritious and tasty (I hope).

I’ve been very good. While I see results every day, being good is easy. If I don’t, cheating becomes a greater reality.

I will be good. I will be an adult. I will exhibit will power. {{chanting}}

Wish me luck.

Fluorescent bulb to be Texas' "state bulb"

Houston mayor joins call to use florescent lights
— Houston Business Journal

Houston Mayor Bill White will join with the four mayors of Texas’ largest cities on Nov. 30 to call on Texans to switch to compact florescent lights to reduce energy use in the Lone Star state.

The five mayors will officially introduce the “state bulb” of Texas from the front steps of San Antonio City Hall, according to a press release from the City of Dallas.

As part of the statewide “Lighten Up Texas” campaign, White has declared the month of December as compact fluorescent light month.

Hispanic Gaming competition formed … Latino Gamerz Match.
— HispanicAd.com

Latino gamers looking to compete in a major gaming tournament will get their chance in 2008. The Latino Gamerz Match, produced in partnership with Major Gaming Championships and Dallas-based Hispanic advertising agency iNSPIRE!, is the first major console gaming tournament targeted directly to Latino gamers.

The Latino Gamerz Match will run in five Hispanic-focused markets across the U.S. including Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Miami and New York beginning in early 2008. The tournament will feature various console gaming competitions as well as a mobile gaming opportunity.

“The Hispanic gaming community purchases over $700 in gaming products each year, but don’t have a gaming tournament targeted to them,” said Blake Pettigrew, president of Major Gaming Championship. “Major Gaming Championships and iNSPIRE! recognized an opportunity to bring these gamers their own tournament.”


pretending nothing is wrong

I sent my sister a long email trying to address the issues that came up in our argument.

She hasn’t responded to it and she hasn’t brought it up. She also hasn’t allowed her children to spend the night again.

I’ve done my part. It’s not my job to be the person who always gives in. I can’t. Not anymore.

If she wants to settle this, then she has to have a conversation with me about it. That’s all there is to it.

I won’t hold my breath.

Pasadena mayoral election

Mayoral candidates square off at Pasadena forum
Special election has drawn field of 11 candidates

— Houston Chronicle2

One of Pasadena’s hottest elections in recent years is in full swing, with early voting under way in the race for mayor.

Early voting continues through Dec. 4 at City Hall.

The Dec. 8 special election has drawn a field of seven candidates — A.J. Christ, O.L. Harris, Don Harrison, Johnny Isbell, Jerri Neely, Ralph Riggs and David Stroder.

The election is necessary because former Mayor John Manlove resigned in October to run for the 22nd Congressional District seat formerly held by Tom Delay.
