    JB: “I have found the truth to be the most underleveraged tool in all of shrinkdom.”

    Ummm, personally, I’ve found proper analysis the most underleveraged tool. Way too much reliance on habit-changing therapy that just pushes the real problem into a different area… oh, look, continuing therapy…

    Yup, we’re saying the same thing I think. Changing the why not the what. You can work through a manifestion, but if you don’t get at WHY you are having the manifestion, I promise you you will have another one. Trouble with the therapeutic system is that to get at the why you have to get at the truth, and that takes time away from making sure the client schedules another session and that their copay is in cash.

    As an aside, I wrote more about this issue in my blog today.

    i don’t know about the rest of you, but if you don’t feel hungry, you should smoke a phatty-boombatty blunt. roll it up… light it up… smoke it up… inhale… exhale…

    that’s what i’m talkin about! after a phatass joint, i’ll eat melons, pizza, chocolate-chip mint ice cream, smores pop tarts, and anything else i can get my hands on. dooce, you should definitely spark one up. fuck the honeydew melon shit; after 1 joint, you’ll want to hit up white castle for those mini-cheeseburgers and KFC for a bucket of chicken. damn, i’m getting hungry…

    Everything makes so much more sense now. Thanks for sharing and good for you.

    And Jimbo, my kids heads were definitely the size of small cantaloupes. I promise you forget. Else there would only be single-child families in all the world.

    Jimbo: A cantaloupe the size of a baby?

    I don’t believe I have ever seen a 7lb3oz cantaloupe.

    And ketchup on avocados?? I shudder just thinking of that combo.

    I had to read that line about eating babies with my eyeballs open about 5 times.

    I know how you feel with the stress of everything like the GPA and whatnot. I’m going through it now.

    My wife eats ketchup on everything. Eggs, Mac and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches. Don’t think that she’s eaten it on avacados though.

    She also puts peanut butter on pancakes and waffles.

    david – nay! the perfect bologna sandwich = (non-veggie) 2 slices bologna, two slices potato bread (OR thick hearty white pepperidge farm) a dollop of mayonaise, one slice kraft american (or one slice provolone), one dollop super strength mustard (with the lil seeds in it).
    (for veggies)all the same except exchange mayonaise for veganaise, bologna for fake bologna and cheese for nothing because again, there is no replacing cheese. this is a NO PICKLE recipe.

    “Over the weekend Jon and I attended a relatively small barbecue at a friend’s house with about 12 other adults and as many children. RIGHT BEFORE WE ATE ALL THE CHILDREN walked around to the adults and handed out handwritten food and drink menus:”
    punctuation is a beautiful thing.

    It is a good thing that you have a healty relationship with food now. I personally have believe that the more you think about food the crazier you get.

    Enjoy food always!!!

    I sympathize with your melon ordeal. Does anyone else get migraines from Honeydew? I’ve renamed it death melon, and refuse to acknowledge it when I walk past the produce section. Glad to know I’m not the only one with melon “issues”.

    Can’t do melons…my first and last bite of watermelon made me vomit at the age of 7. Perhaps because prior to trying said watermelon, I ate half a batch of the “adult brownies”. Nope, can’t do melon, ever. Can’t do the pot brownies either.
    Eating issues….yep, college boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me. For the next 2-3 months the most I ate at one sitting was 2 plain spaghetti strands, half of an orange-just kinda slurping the juice out of it, and water. So I just withered away….and away….and away. Eventually recovered body weight and health and took my head out of my ass. But, put it right back in by eating a few brownies.
