Day 3: Eating Around A Nerd Adventure
- I foresee interesting substitution meal and weird scheduling in the future if I don’t start the day with 8 a.m. Breakfast.
- I’m getting hungry almost to the minute of my schedule now. It’s kind of creepy…
- I stuck to the schedule quite well considering that I spent half a day running around LA on geeky adventure with my Team Wicket partner Christine. Hooray for Free Comic Book Day!
- I fucking hate LA.
- I did exceed the 1,550 calorie allotment by a little bit, but still within the 1550-1773 range. Considered that I was under the limit for the first few days, I think I’m alright.
Yes, I’m short. And yes, that is Jon Favreau.
The man responsible for this picture is on your left. That’s Geoff Boucher, alpha geek and now the host of The Nerdist’s newest podcast Humans from Earth. (Not on their site yet but keep your eyes out.) I’ve been following Geoff since his very first coverage of Comic Con for the LA Times which launched the Hero Complex blog and the film festival. When he did the same for Entertainment Weekly’s Cape Town, I was there too. I finally get to meet him in person here at his third reincarnation at The Nerdist.
And he introduced me to Jon Favreau as his first fan. It’s kind of insane.
A cup of tea with sugar and cream and a nectarine.
Making room for Second Breakfast…
French toast made with 7 grain bread.
I had to wait for Brandon to wake up so I can make breakfast for both of us. Hee.
About a quarter of a Jicama.
Team Wicket was going out on an adventure so my plan was starting to get thrown off right here.
Half of Alternative Baking Company Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookie.
Team Wicket was on the move when lunch time rolled around so I pulled into a Taco Bell and grabbed a burrito. I took two bites and threw it out so I’m not counting that as a meal. It was disgusting. So when I got to the theater, I got me a cookie.
At the Pig ‘n Whistle: Half a plate of fried calamari and half a plate of the Roasted Brussels Sprouts salad.
Hmmm….roasted Brussels Sprouts. So good. Sooooo good.
At Starry Kitchen: One crispy tofu ball, one piece of the clay pot caramelized striped bass with pancetta, and house cured roast pork belly XO fried rice.
Christine and I split the dinner and we both took home leftovers. Glorious, glorious, leftover.
That other half of the vegan cookie.
ETA: For those who just now joined in, here’s why I’m going on “The Hobbit Diet” of eating seven times a day for a month.
