There are so many things I want to do, so many things I want to say. It seems that I can't do and say them all, so I end up doing and saying nothing instead.

I'm contemplating a new diet thing. Have you ever looked at the nutritional information on a bag of sugar? It says that one teaspoon only has 15 calories!

The key to losing weight is having a high metabolism, so what would happen if you ate lots of pure sugar? If I ate three teaspoons of sugar before work, and ate three teaspoons every hour at work, and then ate three teaspoons just before bed, it would all total up to only about 500 calories, and can you imagine how fast your metabolism would be racing?

One problem with this idea is that _some_ people claim that I'm hypoglycemic. On the other hand, I usually don't have a problem as long as the intake of sugar is constant. It's only when there's dips and peaks in the intake that I get weird, er, I mean theoretically get weird =)

Of course exercise would help a lot in this regard as well.
