Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’m on deadline, so you probably won’t be seeing much blogging here for a few weeks. In the meantime, you can always find me microblogging on Twitter and Tumblr, so be sure to check in with me there! (Click on the buttons on the upper right.)
In the meantime, I learned that there’s a German word for the weight you gain from emotional eating: Kummerspeck. Literally translated, it means “grief bacon,” which I love and will probably be my band name sometime in the future. That inspired me to coin my own German word: Romanspeck, which is the weight you gain when you’re on a book deadline. Oy.
