My favorite Tweet:
Got a bagel at H & H Bagels on upper west side. When I ordered I said, "I'll have the snakes on a PLAIN." He did not laugh. Tough crowd.
Have you heard about the McRunner? He ate nothing but McDs for 30 days leading up to the LA Marathon. The thought of that makes my stomach turn, but he ended up running the race in 2:36, which is just under a 6 minute/mile pace. I would be puking for days.
Today is April Fool's Day. I hate April Fool's Day, always having to second guess the real intention behind offerings and announcements of happy or sad news. My co-worker is a big fan of the "holiday," though, so I'm on my guard.

New evidence on how High Fructose Corn Syrup really does affect the body in a different way than sugar. Interesting stuff. Read the full journal article or check out the quick summary on Consumerist.
If you missed it, I'm starting a 30 Day Song Challenge on my blog this Monday. Come join in!
