Q is a very interesting letter

Meg and I just watched the documentary called Word Play . It takes a look at Will Shortz, the crossword facilitator for the New York Times, and the interesting culture behind crossword competitions.

Think of it like a mixture of Trekkies and Best in Show only the whole thing is real. Bill Clinton, Jon Stewart and the Indigo Girls make appearances.


PS The post title is an actual line from the movie.

Day Zero

I weigh 203 lbs.

Not for long. Tomorrow is day one of the Weight Watchers soup diet.

3+ days of fruits, veggies and endless amounts of Cabbage soup. I am not going to be a pleasant person.

At least there's black coffee allowed...
