Technology is crazy!  I bought one of those Jawbone UP bracelets.  And then it syncs with an app called My Fitness Pal.  You leave the UP bracelet on all day (except in the shower) and it keeps track of your movements as well as your sleep patterns.  The goal is 10,000 steps a day and it keeps track and texts you when you've sat too long, or you are really moving - constantly giving you up dates.  The Fitness Pal app lets you scan bar codes of food, or manually enter.  You pre-program if you want to loose, gain or maintain weight... it tells you how many calories you need.  If you enter everything you consume in the day, along with how much activity your getting on UP.. it tells you how you did for the day.  It also monitors your sleeping.

The bar had seats on three sides and I found one available on a corner.  An older gay couple on the left side (both enjoying a big martini) and a straight couple on the right (4 1/2 empty margaritas in front of them).  It quickly became obvious that the straights might have been a little over served, as the man kept repeating the same story/point over and over and over.  I heard the F word at least 50 times in the first 8 minut…
