Forgetting to eat

I've got a weight buddy at uni. He's hoping to bulk up (with weights and such), and I am planning to slim down. Each of us about 5-7 kg, each in opposite directions, each starting roughly at the same weight. Our goal is August. Towards this end, I have entered into a training regime of low-fat lunches, small dinners, and 30 mins or so of DDR every day (except Saturdays, when I train for naginata).

Anyway, because of the excitement of yesterday, what with all the DDR and the visiting of CAMERON (see cameronisbest for details), I forgot to eat lunch yestersday. And seeing as how I tend not to eat breakfast (unless you count two cups of white, sugared coffee), I went almost 24hrs without eating.

I know, it was awful of me. But I made up for it, because I have discovered somewhere I can buy 50 g of salmon roe/caviar for about $7. Some of you may have come across my addiction to fish eggs in the past. It is inexplicable, incomprehensible, and perhaps more than a little disturbing to behold.

After dinner, I gorged myself on my precious salmon roe, little orange-red globes of fish-eggy goodness piled on toast points. It was sooooooooooooo good. But I have discovered that by myself, after an ordinary meal, 50 g of salmon caviar is about my limit for one sitting.

But damn, it was good. I'm all mouth-watery thinking about it...

Roe roe roe your boat.... heard it already huh?
Just out of curiosity, how much space does 50g of salmon roe take up? Are we looking at a heaped tablespoon? level teaspoon? tightly filled backpack?

By the way, I saw you walk past on the corner of Elizabeth and LaTrobe yesterday evening, would have said hi, but I had a mobile glued to my ear.

Sorry I didn't see you, I'm a bit vague at the best of times...

And 50 g of salmon roe is about the size of... hmmm... you know those tiny little jam jars? The sort you can buy a set of three for a few dollars in some supermarkets? Or that they sometimes have in hotel restaurants? About two of those, stacked on top of eachother.

Mmmmm - tasty.

Heh, no problem, it was also in the midst of the exiting rush hour masses, so stopping may have been problematic.

I know the jam jars you mean, usually twee scottish affairs that were ever present as a young'un.

That's a lot of roe.

So are you coming along tonight? I'm very possibly going to be in the city after work, so if you feel like getting out of the house I can drive you...

Coming along where? What's happening? I am working tonight, but depending on what/where things are happening I could drop by afterwards. Tell someone to leave a message on my phone or call me before 4 with details...
