The difference between the Lobster and all the other fish in the sea is that you can never cry quite the same way with anyone else.

    And because they are Crustaceans…and provide the fishing industry with $1.8 Billion every year… and they are gnarly and clawy…and have hard exoskeletons which provide a impersonal and cold facade to their warm (and very tasty) souls within… Yum.

    I give up my feeble attempts at being all smart when I’m all barf. I’m on a diet: all veggies – and I’m missing my meat and fish. What lobsters and the fish do have in common is that I want them bad, and I want them now 😦

    Missing my lobster already(:
    (He’ll be back tomorrow-why am I being a Drama Queen?)

    grimescene: I’m going to sigh. I’m sighing now. See?

    aneela: It’s up here for everyone (or the 3 and a half people who read this blog) to see.

    Nino’s Mum: What kind of diet is this? Are you trying to cut out protein as well?

    CrazyDiamond: I know. They’ll never be deafened.

    wordjunkie: Shuffling sideways out of the picture.

    dipali: Because it’s fun!

    😦 I’m on a forced diet – I’ve been told to go vegan or die of colitis – eventually (had to add that last bit: I’m too melodramatic for my own good!)

    Nino’s Mum: Ouch! I’d be clutching my deathbed by now if any food at all was taken away from me. Ask the India Helps team. They were witness to a phirni-related panic attack this afternoon. 😉

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
