"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.

I had some good energy today, which is sort of weird because I didn't eat more than a cup of rice. I look forward to cooking some good stuff now. I wasn't hungry today.

one more day.

though I am 172 now I'm sure in the next couple days I'll gain a bunch back, I usually never weigh myself.

oop, now I'm tired.

Chris Garneau show tomorrow.

53 ft below

today I went to dutch springs. it's an aqua adventure park... a SCUBA playground. there were too many kids underwater when I got there but I didn't get into the water until 2. By that time it had died down a bit.

The group I went with is more of a "sports diving" dive shop. they go out for fun and to get into the water. I want to be taught things, I want technical skills, I want to go somewhere most people can't go - this is why I will be doing most of my things through another dive shop that is mostly tech based. I really believe in safety first when you are doing something where you could actually die... even if it is simple - it's like buckling your seatbelt even when you aren't on the race track, even IF you are an amazing driver, you never know what may happen.

I also won't go with these people much any more because I thought we were going to leave the shop together and then I was asked if someone could hitch a ride in my car on the way back. so I rented a car. economy. they gave me a convertible. It was a great drive until I hit manhattan on the way back. 1 hour = 30 blocks.

We didn't get that deep because two people had already dove earlier in the day (the more you dive the more nitrogen that gets in your blood and the deeper you go the more nitrogen gets in as well. which is bad). I played in planes and buses and boats and fire engines under water from 30-50ft. it was a spring filled quarry. I really love it.

Jonah made his best pot of rice today. I really miss the act of eating. hunger doesn't mean the same thing, but I really want to eat.

174 lbs.

today I went to a photography town hall meeting. there were about 600 of us and it was very motivating. I am going to start doing stock footage, and with that I can start shooting more for myself and for fun, things I haven't done in a while. I need some waivers/releases/contract thingies for models to sign.

I'm not hungry all of the time, just most of it. I drink a lot of water, and try to keep my mind occupied. I saw a double feature tonight - the brave one and shoot 'em up. they were both entertaining. I would suggest seeing them in that order because the brave one is "realistic" violence and shoot 'em up is hilarious... hilariously gory... which is a good thing.

I went into whole foods to buy uncooked rice, and I ended up getting some cooked brown rice to eat. it had some spice on it, almost cheating, but it tasted amazing. the smells were very difficult and wonderful in the store.

purple rain didn't need a kickstart on her way home. things are pretty good.

I miss eating and drinking.

day 3

today I rode purple rain (my vespa) for the first time in over 7 months. I also rode it for the first time ever - completely legally.

yesterday I finished off buying all of the scuba equipment I need for a very long time. it is some AMAZING equipment. I am going on a dive on sunday, tuesday I check out the rest of my equipment in a pool, and on the 29th I do my drysuit dive. it's very exciting.

as far as the brown rice... I am not very good at eating it. I don't like it. so... I don't eat much. I now weigh 180 pounds. I'm hungry. I could never be anorexic. I have a sensitive nose to begin with - but everything I pass smells SO good. feed me.

first bowl

the gag reflex was subdued by my hunger. brown rice makes my teeth feel weird.

I'm going to see the gray kid play at the with oliver future at 9:30 tonight. everyone should go.

the gray kid


I think there will be a day when people say, "happy 9-11" the same way we say "happy memorial day".

on a totally unrelated note, I am starting the brown rice cleanse/fast today. I'm already hungry. I may update the blog a bit over the next 10 days.

fact that may surprise you - I start the diet/cleanse/fast at 188 pounds. This is about the most I've ever weighed. hopefully this means a change is coming. maybe I'll even shave.
