I'm tired, and I want to go to bed, so here it is: I made it to 6:00 today, and my wife and I went to Fuddrucker's. Mmmmm...buffalo burger.
I'm actually starting to like the whole skipping lunch thing in a perverse way. It's one less thing to worry about. I know what some of you are thinking, and I can even imagine Andrew Nolan saying, "Why are you worried about lunch?" Yeah, it's weird, but it's just one of those weird things that I can't help. "Worry" is probably too strong a word, but I can't seem to come up with a more appropriate one right now.
On another note, the big disappointment is that even though I seemed to have lost a bit of weight, I may have been premature. It's really having little effect on my weight. I think it's some metabolism thingee. Maybe when this is all over, I'll just go for a light lunch - maybe a salad with some chicken or fish with no carbs. (That's just for lunch - I'm not doing a no carb diet.)
Oh, and I bought Braveheart and Gladiator on Blu-Ray today. I was just going to get Gladiator even though Best Buy had an offer that if you bought them both, you'd save $10. When I got there though, I saw that with each one of them, you can get a mail-in rebate for $10. Basically, when it's all said and done, I will have only paid about $10 for each of them. (This only works if you have the DVD version where you can send in the UPC.) These are definitely the kinds of movies that I'll continue to watch at least once every couple of years, and they're definitely the kinds where you notice a big difference with Blu-Ray. What does that have to do with my Ramadan experiment? Nothing. It's just that a good deal makes me giddy.
