16k steps taken, two days off work coming up, and met a friend I haven't seen in ages for drinks and a meal.

All in all, not a bad day to be honest.

Next up, scrambled egg! :drool:

Oh I can already make scrambled eggs.

They're not great scrambled eggs because I can't seem to get the texture entirely spot on, but I can make them and they taste fine and go very well on toast.

everyone likes 'em different. Take me for example, I like mine cooked to death, when the scrambled egg gets that caramelisation and there is no soggy bits at all! :awesome:

But alot of people like them continental style, still wet :blargh: ive always sucked at knowing the exact moment the uncooked (by my estimation :P ) eggs are ready. I remember working at the restaurant, everyone would come for breakfast in the morning and they would always want their eggs done differently. It was such a pain.

Chefs will often tell you, if you can consistently cook the perfect fried egg, you can cook just about anything. The perfect fried egg being runny ofcourse.

I'm smiling as I'm quite excited today, I've finally found a recipe for Coriander and Lime chicken, that looks like it is pretty close in ingredients, to a supermarket, ready prepared dish that was discontinued years ago. I've been searching for a home made substitute but no recipe i've tried, has been as good as those preprepared chicken breasts! But I'm feeling good about this one. In the looking, I've also found a Korean beef steak wrap recipe, with a mango slaw that looks divine. So I'm going to the supermarket to pick up ingredients and shall spend the day cooking :awesome:

Seeing my 11 cats again but most of all - finally sitting on my own computer again and not having to damage my eyes with the small screen of the phone.

That's freaking awesome. I'm also trying to lose weight too but not quite sure if it's the healthy way. But congratulation on the weight loss. I know when I lost the weight it was easier to do physical activities and has made me feel better physically.

Thanks! :)

I used a food app to keep track of what I was eating as well as the exercise. This way I could keep within the BMR while keeping healthy protein and vitamin levels.

I've been counting calories in my head to make sure I don't over eat. I typically go for lower calories like veggies and try to curve my sweet tooth with fruit

In my eternal quest for petty victories I have decided to be obsessive and weigh myself literally every morning unless circumstances forbid it.

To most people seeming to lose 3lbs in almost 2 weeks is absolutely nothing work remarking upon. For someone with my self-esteem issues though, it made me weirdly pleased.

Ugly Delicious is such a good show. I’m currently watching S1 E7 on Chinese cuisine and it’s so informative and amusing. I love food conversations like the ones they have.
Blow: "Nowadays even Liam can release an album of his screechy vocals and it'll probably go #1..."
Ramzus: I can admit that I'm horny just about 24/7
homomorphism: I used to not think your name was deshay and that Erick was just being racist
Hunter: sometimes I think I was literally born to be a pornstar

I'm so lucky to travel in an LGBT+ train car! Across of me there are 2 lesbian girls sleeping hugged and nobody makes a problem of it. That makes me happy. But don't get me wrong - this is not a fetish, I'm just happy for them bc that means there is hope for the people of my country. I'm also happy for them bc they don't have to hide it. Nearly 20 years ago when I met my first male love, such an openness was unthinkable.

A customer came into the store today and he looked so much like Brenden it honestly had me doing a double-take when I first looked over to the door.

Brenden's been down the bookies again, spending the rent money on the horses. Shame him.

Wait... do you actually work in a bookies, or is this something that I've just pulled out of nowhere?

No I do actually work in a bookies. I've mentioned it a fair few times, usually in relation to how much it sucks more than me after a couple of drinks.

Any chance of being able to go to work stoned? Literally everybody who worked in the kitchen at McDonalds was perma-stoned when I worked there, and it apparently improved the job quite dramatically. :P

I mean I literally know a guy who got fired on the spot when the management found out he was working stoned.

I could probably do better at my job after a pint or so but I've yet to test the theory.
