Beer is not necessarily off the menu

Just because you are on a low calorie, low carb, diet is no reason to give up beer. This very evening, I enjoyed a nearly completely liquid dinner: Healthy Choice Chicken Gumbo (1 can) and Michelob Ultra (2.5 bottles). While the third bottle may have been a bit excessive, at 95 calories per, I still kept under my 1300 calorie maximum for the day.

Be advised, that this is a very rare menu. I had a very disappointing interview experience this morning, followed by an EXTREMELY frustrating day at my current job.

In any event, I'm off to tune out the world by watching one of my favorite movies: Snatch, Guy Ritchie's best flick. If you haven't seen it, please put it on your rental list. You will not regret it. Here is my favorite bit of dialog from the movie:

Turkish: F**k me, hold tight. What's that?
Tommy: It's me belt, Turkish.
Turkish: No, Tommy. There's a gun in your trousers. What's a gun doing in your trousers?
Tommy: It's for protection.
Turkish: Protection from what? "Zee Germans"?

Oh dear. Sorry it didn't go so well. Do I need to send you a poster of a kitty hanging from a branch with "hang in there" on it?

Today is a better day. I just set up a meeting for tomorrow with a headhunter (same one someone else here is using). As long as I feel like I'm doing something about the situation, and there's hope, I can be upbeat. I have spent a lot of time laughing at stuff today, Dilbert-esque situations. Laughter is a better response than beer. But, sometimes beer works.
