I'm 5'5" and weigh 150 lbs. At the DC Auto Show today, I attempted to squeeze into the back seat of a Jaguar XK coupe. After horribly contorting my body, the best I could manage was lying sideways in a fetal position. There was literally zero room for my legs, and I couldn't even reach the seat belt.

I've had a 30-inch waist since the end of puberty. Now, suddenly none of my pants fit. I can barely get away with a 31, but if I'm honest, I'm up to a 32. I haven't changed my diet, and I'm not getting any less exercise. But I am almost 29 years old, and I think my metabolism has finally crapped out.

Off to Toronto for work tomorrow. It'll be my first time in Canada (and it's going to be bitchin' cold!). Everyone says that I need to go to the casinos and the strip clubs. I'd rather do neither, thanks. But I am planning to see Niagara Falls, which I think should be pretty cool.
