Happy Halloween!

I’m trying to get the blog back on track after a couple days of storm-related posts. It’s still nasty out there, especially for those folks in New York and on the Jersey shore… basically anyone without power. Supportive Partner Woman (Birthday girl!) and I went to Lowe’s to return the extra sump pump yesterday and they had signs up saying that their generator stock had been shipped to New York. Kudos to them for getting units to where they are needed.

In honor of the wedding anniversary and SPW’s burfday, we opted to go to Red Lobster for crab legs. We behaved… no soup, and I had salad, broccoli and a pound of crab legs. The caloric impact of the crab legs is only 180, 40g of protein, but there’s 1,500 mg of sodium. Yikes. I have to think that some of that’s in the drawn butter that I don’t use. The broccoli isn’t bad and actually is steamed perfectly. I also get the salad with the dressing on the side and I just dip the tines of the fork in the dressing. Taste, and not a lot of calories and fat.

As an aside, one of the great benefits of my job is that we get CNN shoved down our throats in all the break rooms. The highlight is that sandwiched between hack “journalists” like Anderson Cooper and general sleazebags like Piers Morgan, you get to see the advertisements. Saw one yesterday that totally cracked me up:

I guess it’s better than the early morning ads for

Anyways, folks… I hope to return to a more focused approach over the next few days. In the meantime, if you are in the areas still impacted by that tropical bitch, Sandy, stay safe. We’re thinking of you.
