Tinypliny's food survey answers

1. I drink about 1 and 1/2 gallons of whole milk per week. I also eat about 20grams protein worth of whey powder each morning with breakfast.
2. I eat a few slices of cheese each day but not a ton.
3. I use no creamer, besides milk I drink lots of juice mixed with water or just water - no coffee, sometimes herbal tea but barely.
4. I eat 1-1/2 cups of cooked rice every single day. I usually mix half brown/half white. More if you include rice cakes.
5. I eat 0.25 loaves of bread per week. Sometimes, like today, I do eat some bread. Usually, I do not.
6. I eat barely any pasta although I like rice noodles and mung bean noodles.
7. I eat meat everyday, most often fish, clams, shrimp, crab, squid, octopus. Occasionally lamb, chicken or steak. Usually lean but I do like some fat on steak. Not huge portions, accept for maybe shrimp. Sometimes I eat like 20 of them.
8. I almost never eat eggs. A couple years ago I ate eggs every single morning.

You forget to mention these but I eat a ton of vegetables and fruits everyday. Mostly, peas raw, celery, salad greens, string beans cooked, asparagus, strawberries, watermelon, citrus fruit, apples, dried apricots, olives, and blueberries.

I use almost no butter, I liberally pour olive oil on everything. Not so much cooked with olive oil but like poured on afterwards.

Also lots of nuts, especially cashews, almonds and pecans.

I eat almost no processed/packages/preserved food at all. The closest I get are like fig newmans and corn chips. I eat about 85% organic accept obviously not when I eat out. I use very few spices but those I do eat are rosemary, oregano, clove and cinnamon.

I also like to mix all my food together. I generally eat the most right before bed. I exercise at the gym about 3 times a week and walk around a bunch.

Pink Hearts not Pink Slips

I took this picture for my union's website but I don't think it made it in.

Facebook and McDonalds Do It

I have been busy building an app for my new phone. I have a whole lot of pictures to post soon as it is done. In the meantime I wanted to post about this before its already normal.

Facebook's attempt to push location based services is so commercial its disgusting. I can't believe the service is partnered with McDonald's. Maybe it is just because I hate McDonald's so much.

AdAge is reporting that Facebook is expected to challenge popular startup Foursquare by offering location-based status updates for its users later this month. McDonald's is allegedly building an application with Facebook to allow users to check in at one of its restaurants and have a featured product appear in the post.



I bet it is not long before most people's daily experiences are paired with matching advertisements. I for one do not want to become an advertising venue ever. Moreover, its really unfair for anyone when you think it is in exchange for some fucking coupons. Think about how much advertising normally costs - this is a brilliant use of people on faceboo and McDonald's part. I guess it's that other people don't care so much but it seems pretty disgusting to me.

Whats next facebook, a strategic partnership with BP gas stations?

Artists and Models

Had a crazy evening at Artists And Models on Saturday night. The event was pretty fun although I thought $4 per 1/2 cup of wine was expensive for something with a $20 entrance fee.

I actually had a really good time there and then afterward traveling around and hanging out with some people I just met and some I don't regularly see.

One of the best moments was with (e:holly) in the living room

This performance including dissecting a McDonalds meal as though it was at a biohazzard site.

This was one of my favorite visuals.

At the stimulus package stand you had to make a promise to yourself and then get approved. They gave you a set of cards to help to reach your goal. My goal was to learn wood turning. I got approved, got cards and then somehow lost them in 20 minutes. What does that say for my ability to commit to that goal. No seriously, I am interested.

Bye Bye Birdies

I felt bad but your parents were making a mess of my house and it was time for it to end before you were even born. The tortoise enjoyed the eggs.

Nexus One magic

The nexus one is magic in a lot of ways. One of those it the support for google voice. The way it works, you get voicemail, the voicemail is translated into text and then sent to you as email or text message.

Sounds awesome, right? Sadly, though I found it is not very accurate. This particular voicemail is pretty is from Rite Aid telling me that my medicine was ready for pickup. It is supposed to say "This is your rite aid store" What is especially weird is that it is also a robot talking. Apparently, google's speech-to-text translator cannot understand robot voice very well.

Here is the mp3




::DOWNLOAD SOUND::



Here is the translation:

Hello, this is your wife the door. We are calling to remind Paul Visco. There's your order is ready you can pick up your order until May 16th 20 parents this message will be repeated this is your wife needs door. We are calling to remind Paul Visco. Did your order is ready you can pick up your order until May 16th 20 padding this message will be repeated this is your wife needs door. We are calling to remind Paul Visco. Did your order is ready you can pick up your order until May 16th 20. Hey in.

Iphone OS user photo path

I needed to get to the old photos on my iphone before giving it to (e:Terry). Unfortunately, they they will not transfer to iphoto anymore. It seems like once I got over 900 in one folder it didn't want to sync on any mac. Anyhow, thankfully I had jailbroken it, so I just SCPed the photos from the iphone to the computer. The problem was trying to find the photos. I used updatedb and then locate. Find could have worked but it would have taken a while because my iphone was packed with so much crap.

Anyhow the point of the journal is to tell other people looking for the same data that it is in /private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM

So ready for bed - nexus one tether ya

I spent the last hour rooting my nexus one so i could tether and write this sentence. Interesting sidenote: once you have tethering enabled both fedora and windows can tether with USB. On fedora it is even easier than windows. I plugged in the phone and it shows up in the network manager as a internet source.

There is no way to get it to work on the mac. For that you have to use a wifi tethering option which sucks because its way less secure, slow and requires extra power to run.

It also has a flash and this picture was taken in darkness to give you an idea how good that works in dark.

The best part is being able to listen to streaming radio n the background. I am sure the new iphone will do that out of the box too.
