    I see he was measuring her with her shoes on and weighing her with her purse full of bricks. They say rations were bigger for those doing heavier work – but you know the human body will burn huge amounts of energy when you work it hard. I was recently reading an article on oil field workers in the Arctic. They use up to 12,000 calories a day doing heavy work outside in the snow. (compared to 1,800-2,000 for a normal male)

      That is more than Olympic swimmers like Michael Phelps burned. We were watching a BBC special on the Arctic last night and I just did not see the beauty there. Ice after ice after cold–not no way, not no how. They can keep that job. Although I do need to burn off the eggs and buttered toast I just ate…

    If my caloric intake was based on the work I do I would be hungry, bored and cranky all the time. I do work out at a gym though. At least 3 times per week. So that qualifies me for another piece of pie. Doesn’t it?

    she does look thin. But the purse is going to add some weight, especially if it is full of bricks.
