On the way to the show last night , listening to MPR. I heard about a wonderful new thing. Truly. This IS America , Folks! It seems that 20 to 40% of the DOGS in this country are obese. So the FDA has just approved Slentrol . To help your DOG lose weight.
Hello??? Am I the only one here who is baffled? I mean, it's your dog. Feed it right. Talk it for a walk. Yes? I don't have a dog ( yet ) but it would seem to me that one of the reasons for having a dog is to take it for walks with you. Almost a fitness AID. Sort of an extra added boost to get you out of the house and walking.
A diet drug for dogs.
MPR is fun, don't get me wrong, they were simply reporting on the event, not advocating it. ( And who can forget last week, on the way to the New Years Eve Show, where they did an entire hour on the Doctor who invented the Lobotomy, kind of a funny ironic New Years piece if you think about it. )
The gig last night was beyond fun, I think we took a total of 20 minutes break in the four hour show, so many people having so much fun, myself not the least. Can't wait for tonight, we are going as pirates, complete with flags and shirts and all sorts of really bad pirate jokes. I don't know why we are doing this, just that it seemed like a good idea at the time ( shows what sober can do, hee-hee ! )
Other than that I am working out and eating right and getting ready to shoot some video in the spring, all very exciting and a very new thing for me. Am I perfect? Do I manage the workout every day? Eating only lean meat and veggies? Nope. No way. Can't happen. Went on a pasta jones for BREAKFAST this morning. But did I eat the whole box with an entire stick of butter? ( trust me, I can do it. Won't even blink, I'm a pro ) Nope. One serving. With veggie sauce.
And am I happy with myself ?
Now I am off to play my violin and save the dogs of America.
Love and Pirates,
