Diva diet

I read this in the Cecilia Bartoli bio by Manuela Hoelterhoff, Cinderella & Company, and fell out of my chair at Starbucks.

I thought that my opera friends, or those closely associated would truly appreciate it.

1/2 grapefruit
1 slice of whole wheat toast
8 oz. low-fat or skim milk

4 oz. lean broiled chicken breast
1 cup steamed spinish
1 cup herbal tea
1 Oreo cookie

Rest of Oreos in pack
2 pints Haagen Dazs ice cream, preferably vanilla
1 jar hot fudge sauce with nuts, cherries, whipped cream

2 loaves garlic bread with cheese
Large cheese pizza
4 cans or 1 large pitcher of beer
3 Milky Way candy bars

Entire frozen Sara Lee cheesecake eaten directly from the freezer

1. Movie-related foods do not have additional calories, because they are part of the entire entertainment package and are not part of one's personal intake.
2. Cookie pieces contain no calories. The process of breaking causes caloric leakage.
3. Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories. Examples include spinach and pistachio ice cream, cauliflower and whipped cream.
4. If you fatten up the people around you, you will look thinner.

So, I don't have a whole lot of time, but I thought that I'd write a quick one.

Last night, my mother was t-boned. She said she was fine, just a little sore, and still in shock. She saw the car coming, and turned away and leaned into the middle of the car. She went to LDS hospital after eating dinner and is doing fine, to the best of my knowledge.

Please keep her in your thoughts/prayers.
