So, I decided to cut the crap this year, and not even think about a resolution for the New Year. I mean, I know I’m not motivated enough to complete any, so why put myself through the misery of failure? A popular one in my circles is a diet and exercise improvement resolution. Original, and the best. It’s also the one most likely to fail within a month or two.
Most people stick to it for a few weeks, even months before deciding that the ‘diet didn’t work’ or ‘exercising didn’t help me lose weight’. But usually, it’s not the diet or exercise, it’s you. You suck, and you didn’t actually stick to it properly. You wet your feet and didn’t like it, so you quit. I’m not judging you, I’m just saying why try if you aren’t going to put in 100%?
Hell, I’m not going on any fad diets this year (Well, every few months I do turn to my ‘braces diet’ of liquid and mushy food, but a lot of that is mashed potato and scrambled eggs with butter, so shut up) but what I am doing in the next two months is learn to cook a dish or two from 30 different countries. That’s right, I’m increasing my food repertoire, not reducing it to herbal tea and chickpea soup. Like Gwyneth, everyone’s favourite insane starvation expert.
I urge you to read or at least skim the article in that link, it really does show that celebrities must really hate themselves to deprive themselves of literally the only thing that can keep you alive and happy (FOOD) to look slightly better. Which is retarded, since they get photoshopped anyway. Leave it to the post-production crew, idiots, and eat what you want.
My list is below in no particular order. I am a little scared of the peking duck, seeing as I don’t have a dry storage area with a hanging hook for fresh poultry to dry out, and also the Afghan dumplings.. because they look fiddly.
