There have been many instances in my life where I have dealt with Temptation. I think to myself, "giving in would be a really bad idea, and you will soon regret it." And yet, the instant gratification is so... delicious. So it's almost worth it. And even though I suffer later, I do not regret it.

So I think I'm lactose intolerant. I started wondering in college, when some kinds of ice cream gave me a funny feeling in my belly. That progressed to some kinds of cheese, and now it seems like most dairy products make me feel weird. This is irritating. As most (if not all) of you know, I love cheese. I eat it all the time. And yet, it no longer agrees with me.

Last night, I faced Temptation. I was at Pasqualino's, debating what to order. Should I get the Margherita pizza? Covered in delicious mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil? Or the capellini pomodoro? "Hmmm," I thought, "I like them both, but the pizza is covered in cheese and will likely make me feel funny later. And yet... that's what I really want right now. Awww, heck... I'm getting pizza." And it was delicious. I enjoyed giving into Temptation, even though my belly felt weird for several hours afterwards. I do not regret it. I also have leftovers, which I will enjoy, even though I'll still be feeling it until dinner time.

*sigh* I know the best thing for me is to probably give up dairy products, but I don't think I can do that. They're too delicious. I just wish that Lactron, the almighty god of dairy, didn't have such a sick sense of humor. (And no, Lactron isn't a real god, at least not to my knowledge. I just made him up right now, because I have no idea if there's already a god of dairy products. And "Lactron" is a fun name.) Ahhh, Temptation, why must you torment me? You know I cannot resist you!

On the other hand, apparently they make soy cheese. Has anyone actually tried it? Is it anything even remotely like the real thing? I'm worried that if I try it, I'll be tremendously disappointed.

    Now I'm picturing the most awkward conversation with a new person... Person: Hi! I'm person! Ade: Hi, I'm Ade. Person: Have you accepted Jesus…

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
