My sensei told me I have to get lose 4 kg by end feb for my grading. All was going well and I had dropped 2 but by Jan 1 I had gained three!! Now I have dropped 2 again.
Damn you, food!
On a side note. Adonis was born from a tree. If I remember correctly, his mother ( I think her name was Smyrna) had sex with her father by tricking him one night and when he found out he tried to kill her with his sword. SHe fled and begged the gods to grant her mercy and make her invisable from her father...so the Greek gods, being the bastards that they were, said "yeah sure" and turned the poor little trollop into a tree.
9 months later he was born from a knot in the trunk...and then every morning he'd wake up with a woody...

No, back in those days, small cocks were all the rage.
Yeah, that's the standard story. But there are other versions. An Apollodorus passage has him as the son of Phoenix and Alphesiboea ("Fragment #21 -- Apollodorus (22), iii. 14.4.1: But Hesiod says that he (Adonis) was the son of Phoenix and Alphesiboea.").

In any case, Adonis was later deified as an object of cult-worship around the Mediterranean and Levant.

I have no idea how it happened, with family feasting and no care for what I was eating for over a week, I still managed to lose 2 lbs. Hooray!
"Pompoi" is a playful ribbing in Thai for someone who has gotten chubby. "Uaan" is more derogatory or sincere for calling someone "fat".
i'll just stick to calling you lardass
