|I Want The Placebo Effect

There's some new scientific data that says vitamin supplements, in particular multivitamins, don't really do crap-all for you.
And honestly, I'm not surprised.
However, since my doctor told me that (several months ago), I've tapered off to the point where I've pretty much stopped taking my daily multivitamin.
And I've felt like crap.
I dunno if the two things are related since I'm still in a pretty down cycle, mentally speaking... but... fuck it. If it's a placebo effect, it's a placebo effect. I feel better when I take my fuckin' multivitamin every day with my fast-breaking high (soluble) fiber bar.
News Flash: GOLDEN CHERRIES BRING ENDORPHINS! Not really an endorphin rush - I've only ever had two of those in my life, both after prolonged and agonizing pain. More of a feeling of cheerful well-being. I had them as both appetizer AND dessert and DAMN they're tasty. (We went food shopping, and that was a Very Good Thing.)
The BF made an awesome potato, sausage, tomato, garlic THING that we both enjoy and threw in a handful of fresh peas from the garden. Sugar snap peas from the backyard also BRING THE YUM.
And I got my second bag-o-free-stuff off Freecycle today. Just some tapes for my Beetle (which only has a tape player), but that's cool, man. (The first was a pair of metal mesh baskets that stack, which I used to organize a messy corner of the kitchen.)
Finally, I got email from 2 potential new clients within minutes of each other tonight. With a little luck, my ad on The Ibbetson Street Press blog will pay for itself very soon. Although it's gonna take a lot longer for the cost of designing the ad to pay off. *sigh* Damn. Just bummed myself out. Oh well. Time for sleep.
