The Average Would Be Lower

But I bring the mean weight up:

Texas Is Not Obese!! Go Ahead, Eat That Cheese Enchilada!!

I usually am not thrifty with my posts; after all, I don't pay for the electrons or the server space, but this one should include the word of the day:

gormandize\GAWR-muhn-dahyz \ , verb;

1. To eat greedily or ravenously.

That's one of those words we fat people like to use to describe our otherwise piggish eating habits.

I "bumped" up this post because I'm now wondering if since legalizing pot, Colorado still has a low rate of obesity. Y'know, munchies and all that....

It's Because My Soul is Cool

Your Soul Is Connected to the Fall

You are a somewhat sensitive soul with a tough exterior. You are street smart and wise about the world.

You have the heart of a poet, but you're not too eager to let anyone else see it.

You are very creative and deeply talented. You are still looking for the perfect outlet for your expression.

You embrace change and think the cycles of life are beautiful. You don't shrink away from the darker elements of life.
