    • Whew! I'm in a kind of paleo high. I say 'paleo' because, except for a minuscule amount of sugar in the fish sauce, I've been strict paleo today. I must be secreting massive amounts of oxytocin or something, because I just totally love the world and want to feed everyone whole food and banish grains from the planet.

        I could use some of that. Can you package it up and send it northwest?

          • Well, last night I managed to do something that I have often stated was not possible - I got drunk. Yep. Swimming followed by twelve ounces of wine consumed during the cooking and eating of the fried cauliflower dish led to a state of intoxication that I haven't experienced for some time. Woke up a teensy bit hungover. I couldn't figure out why I had a slight headache and a bit of achiness and touch of nausea...ewwww...yeah...that's why...

            Anyway I've drunk a boatload of water, a cup of tea, and am on the road to recovery. Not going to do that again any time soon!

            Hey! Since the world is going to end tomorrow, be sure to have a good time today!

            • Had some leftovers and a clementine - feel better now. Slim Cat let me trim all of his nails with great equanimity, while BW Cat fought me like the tiny tiger that he is. Slim Cat is not a lap sitter, but he does like lots of love on his own schedule and terms. When he wants chin scratching, he MUST have it. It doesn't matter what else I might be doing. BW Cat, on the other hand, is a lap sitter and will stay there for hours and hours when he is in the mood. This combination can, at times, make it difficult for me to get anything done.

                Was this before or after the 'paleo high'?

                • LOL, I guess it was after! (Or maybe that's a rhetorical question!)

                  Went swimming, had fun. Had some Greek yogurt and blackberries and pistachios for lunch. Yacht Club party tonight. (Seems so weird to say that.) Tomorrow is another party - a small dinner gathering. Other than choir practice and the Christmas Eve service, that is the end of my obligations. I'm toying with the idea of inviting an old friend here for Christmas, but not sure. Oh wait, the world is ending tomorrow. And I was gonna make primal brownies!

                  • That darn Mayan calendar is messing up everyone's fun!!!! Make the brownies tonight......... but don't eat them all, just in case the Mayan's were wrong.

                    12 oz of wine makes you drunk? Me thinks you are a light-weight! I have a very high tolerance for alcohol (to my detriment)! I can drink a tall long island iced tea - and barely feel it. Two is just about right for the buzz factor. I've never tried more than that!
                    1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                    2. Eat to heal
                    3. Move to live
                    4. Embrace today
                    5. Live with intention
                    6. Respect my body
                    7. Cultivate joy
                    8. Find my passion
                    9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                    • I'm an extremely cheap date. Twelve oz. is way over my limit! I have no tolerance for alcohol at all. However, I normally fall asleep before I get drunk. Also, I am just not a drinker - of anything. I rarely get thirsty and I don't even drink water. I know this is bad, but it's just the way I am made.

                      The Yacht Club party was great! The funnest party I've been to in a long time. I wonder if I can get a special party membership? Where I just come to the parties and don't use the yachts? I have no idea how much the membership is. I think if you have to ask you can't afford it. Rare for me to go to a party and be so busy talking to people that I don't make it over to the buffet. And there was plenty of primal food on that buffet too! The better the restaurant, establishment, etc., the more primal the food - what does that tell you? This buffet was loaded with shrimp, sausage, smoked salmon, beef, turkey, ham, olives. There was not a corn or potato chip to be seen. Anyway, it was fun.

                      • Hi Siobhan ... I'm loving your posts ... I read them most days. Thank you ..you take me out of my life and give me a very special window on some else's! I am a 56 year old primary teacher in England with a husband and two nearly grown up girls. I have been mostly primal for nearly a year now and experiencing as much fun as you are having with clothes etc. I visit charity (thrift?) shops regularly to keep up with my changing wardrobe needs. My only real problem have been bras!!! Keep writing as I love reading.

                        • Hi Siobhan,
                          I'm new to paleotrack.com and was wondering if you happen to have the nutritional information for fish oil supplements. I'm not sure where to enter the 1000mg fish oil (made up of salmon, herring and mackerel) I discovered which fatty acids to list the EPA 180mg and DPA 120mg under. Can you perhaps help?
                          Have a great day.

                          • You probably are at the 'create custom foods' box - change it to read 'fill in all nutrients - supplements.' When you get there, there will be tabs at the top - choose the one you want. If you have any problems, email the site owner using the link - he is super nice and very helpful.

                            Thanks, ragwort! I'm so glad to know you are reading my posts. I know people are reading because I notice the counter going up all of the time, but it is really nice to hear from people. Of course it's nice to hear that people like reading my posts although I would also be happy to hear from those who think I'm crazy.

                            • Hey Siobhan, sounds as though you are doing well. I do read your posts all the time - but have been inundated with life lately so have not been getting to everyone's journals as I would like. I will have to try the cauliflower options you were talking about - I am always looking for new ways to try and get DS to eat cooked veggies...

                              • I highly recommend the mashed (potato) cauliflower - very, very easy and quick and so good.

                                I'm taking a little break from swimming because I have a minor eye infection. It's been bothering me for a few days and I think swimming is aggravating it. It's nothing and I would like to get rid of it! And I really don't want to take any antibiotics or anything like that.

                                Many errands to run and then have to rest for work!

                                Anyone seen "The Hobbit" yet?
