final thoughts: i like blogging. it chronicles what i eat, even better than when i used an excel spreadsheet to calculate my daily caloric intake. it also amuses me, and lord knows if i'm not a happy person, i'm quite the beast. but i'm most amused when my friends and pham-ily "visit". they know how anti-social i normally am so this is my way of sharing. i have a stat counter thingy that tells me the number of people who visit my page and lately it's been spiking. pretty modest but it still tickles me. however, i'd love to hear from the readers. surely i'm doing something wrong or i could do something better? or there's something you'd like me to make? cus trust, i'll give it a whirl and even if i fail, i'll still say something.

anyway, please don't forget to do something about your boobies, whether it be participate in a walk, another walk, the bake off or feeling yourself up for any potential bumps.
