I took too many pain pills today. I should accidentally do that more often.

Good news. I’m having less pain today than yesterday! There are two possible explanations. Either: 1) my feet are improving; or 2) I accidentally took a double dose of pain reliever about two hours ago when I wasn’t paying attention. (I think it’s number two. I should accidentally do that more often.)

As I write this post I’ve got a gorgeous loaf of homemade low-carb bread cooling on the counter and another gorgeous homemade meatloaf cooling on top of the stove. Try and guess what’s for dinner tonight!

Incidentally, I think I’ve probably mentioned this before, but if you make meatloaf you have to buy yourself a Perfect Meatloaf Pan like mine. This thing is completely nonstick, has a lift-out tray so you never screw up the finished product wrestling it out of the pan, measures 13" x 7½" x 4" and makes a beautiful two-pound meatloaf. The lowest price I’ve seen on the Internet is from Amazon (click here) for about nine bucks. Go for it, okay?
I was expecting a nice big order today from, but when I checked UPS online tracking a few minutes ago to find out why it hasn’t been delivered I see a strange notation: “LATE TRAIN.” Late train? What train? The top of the tracking screen just says EXCEPTION in giant gold letters with no new delivery date. Where’s my stuff, people? I NEED MY STUFF!
And now for something completely different and 100% weird. Apparently there’s an annual convention called BronyCon … a big hoo-hah for adult Internet nerds of the male gender who are addicted to the “My Little Pony” TV series. They call themselves Bronies. I’m not joking. Their female counterparts, who are outnumbered by the men in this club by more than four to one, are referred to as Pegasisters. A semi-pathetic and thoroughly hilarious video mashup of convention highlights appears below for your possible interest. The Winter 2012 BronyCon in Manhattan drew a crowd of 700 (many wearing costumes) to a sweltering ballroom to network, swap stories about their favorite characters and buy My Little Pony toys. Organizers alerted attendees before the conference that “You’ll be in a room with many other people, so please be courteous by practicing good personal hygiene.” I have no idea what qualifies as good personal hygiene for a Brony. Regardless ... enjoy the show:

It’s time for food and a movie. This afternoon I started watching Sincerely Yours (1955) starring Liberace, Joanne Dru and Dorothy Malone, a bizarre story about a concert pianist who goes deaf and gets involved in a love triangle with TWO WOMEN. Talk about lousy casting, right? I’ll let you know how it ends. In the meantime, feast your eyes on THIS.
Thank you for reading this. It’s meatloaf  time at Howdygram headquarters.
