Diabeetus Chef

Well, that hasn't happened in a while.

Note to self: pita bread is a lot denser in carbs than it appears to be. I can't think of anything else that would explain yesterday, because I just shouldn't have been that damn tired on 6 hours' sleep, and I recognize that logy sleepy feeling all too well. For the record, I got home from the interview and exchanging moldy pitas for good ones at around 1300, ate the rest of the hummus and a sandwich, and then just kind of sat there in a sleepy daze until finally giving up and going to bed around 1800. Slept until 2200, got up, ate a belated dinner and took meds, and wound up going back to bed for another five hours of sleep at 0500. I feel okay now, and my blood sugar is down from yesterday morning, but I didn't like the way that felt, no sir.

In other news, the legs are getting better after backsliding a bit. I think the generic Allegra is helping with the scratching problem. Still haven't managed to get the scale put together.

Day of Empire

Amy Chua got a lot of attention for her controversial World on Fire, which posited that the push to impose liberal democracy on other nations (a favorite project of the Democrats until W got hold of it) would inevitably prove counterproductive, doubles down with Day of Empire, whose thesis is that historically, hyperpowers thrive and grow when they practice tolerance, only to wither when they don't.
