Old Blood and Guts

I have been watching all the movies that won the Oscar for Best Picture. The next on my list was the 1970 winner, Patton, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner and starring George C. Scott and Karl Malden. This was the Oscar winner, incidentally, the year I was born.

Patton is a biopic about the famous World War II American general, George S. Patton Jr., showing high and low points from the war. In part because of the acting and in part because of the script, the film is a fascinating exploration of his character.

Camera-Phone Diet - Monday, May 25

Until I reach my goal of losing 15 pounds (which will put me where I was on my wedding day), I'm doing something called the "Camera-Phone Diet," where you photograph everything you eat. Yesterday, since my husband, The Gryphon, was home, we got takeout for lunch from the local diner. For dinner, we had leftovers.

Here's what I ate:

Monday, May 25 - Breakfast  Monday, May 25 - Lunch  Monday, May 25 - Dinner  Monday, May 25 - Fruit  Monday, May 25 - Snack
