Here is a picture of what it is like to work as a remote consultant. I’m watching the company All Hands Meeting while I am making myself lunch. It’s a living, a good one and pretty fun.

Lunch, Eat to Live Style

Posted on April 11, 2016

Big Ass Salad

For those curious about what it is like on the Eat to Live plan, this is my typical lunch. I can’t actually eat the whole thing, it usually takes two sittings to consume all that and sometimes three. It is spinach, roma tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocados, carrots, mushrooms, raw sunflowers seeds, a sprinkling of flax seed, and topped with a bean (I lean toward various white beans.) Recently I’ve started adding a small jalapeƱo to the mix, since it acts as a natural appetite suppressant.

When I talk about how I am never hungry on this plan, this is why. It is a pretty enormous amount of nutritious and tasty food.

Here is a proof of concept that moves the ball down the field of me working on the mythical zine I’ve been talking about for years.

For those wondering, the things on top are pieces of cardstock trimmed to 7.11″ X 11″, and they were put together and photocopied at 77%. Who says you never use algebra in real life? In your face, math doubters!

Jackie and Laurie

From the Jackie and Laurie show this week:

Discussing church, God and the trinity:

Laurie Kilmartin: “They lose me when they try to explain the holy trinity to me. It’s God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It’s three different things but they are the same thing. What? That just doesn’t make sense to me. If you can explain to me how three and one are the same number, by all means but no one ever has.”
Jackie Kashian: “You’ve never watched The Transformers? You take three different action figures …”
