Go for SS first... It might not work for long, but it probably will for a couple of weeks. Maybe a month... even longer if you're really able to stuff yourself with 6000 calories each day.
Definitely get Practical Programming right now, though. And start reading so you'll be ready for the switch to intermediate programming.
Point is, you're going to want to milk the novice gains for as long as you can.
Start your SS cycle at conservative weights and gradually increase for as long as you're able before you switch to the Texas method or some other form of intermediate programming.
