  • Here's my theory. Your body noticed you were having sex again, and said, 'hey, she's still using those parts. Let's rev' 'em up!' and then it told your appetite that you might be making baby brains, hence the craving for fish.

    I like those Mary Janes. Perfect for when you want to pretend you are wearing 'real' shoes. Has anyone tried them? How do they compare to barefoot/loose Vans/Birkenstocks?

      LOL, that's a hilarious theory! Although I hate to think of what kind of baby brain I would produce at my advanced age, fish or no! Maybe it's the homebrew kombucha?

      I really noticed those shoes because of the price - I've never seen any barefoot style shoes so cheap. I might try a pair just because.

      • Had a large and late lunch of peruvian purple potatoes and roast beef. Very good! So that means not hungry for dinner. Had a cup of herb tea.

        Very chilly, I lit a fire in the woodstove! First of the season! Although now it is too hot and I have all the windows open.

        • Slept great and woke up hungry - had a huge breakfast! A sausage, baked haddock, mango, avocado, eggplant, tomato. Not much of each, of course. It is unusual for me to eat so many different things at one meal. Can't say I like it much. I like to have only one or two things. But I had stuff to be used up, so it all went on the plate.

          I totally forgot about my book/meditation group this morning! Oops. Feeling like I want to get out and do something, but I'm not sure what.

          The cats are cracking me up as usual. I am always amazed at how they can materialize out of nowhere when they hear a can.

          • Having kind of a weird day. The construction noise is horrible, horrible. I went to the library and the coffee shop to escape. Came home when I was feeling weird, you know, below the waist. Have had some intestinal distress. We'll leave it at that. Mercifully, I think the construction is over for the day.

            Maybe I am just a little stressed. Choir starts tonight and I am a little nervous for some reason. Tomorrow I'm meeting up with a friend I haven't seen for years, also her two sisters whom I don't know. And the construction noise. Hmmmm seems like I should be tougher than this.

            Zoodled up a sweet potato that is in the oven right now. Mmmmmmmmm. That will cure me!

            I've pre-ordered The Paleo Manifesto that is excerpted on MDA today. Did so quite a while back. I think it will be really good! I've ordered it on my Kindle Fire, the first book I've pre-ordered in e-version. I haven't really taken to e-books. I think they are good for really big thick novels, but for books that I know I will be flipping through, not so much. And most books I read, particularly non-fiction, I flip around and go back and read out of order. Ebooks are no good for that. However, I have no more room on my bookshelves. I have a ton of books on my Kindle that I haven't read and probably never will because they just don't jump out at me. I also hate hate hate that my Kindle Fire eats through battery power like nothing I've ever seen and I have to plug it in constantly. Kinda defeats the purpose! My regular Kindle is much better with battery use but not nearly as pretty.

            • Saw something so disturbing tonight! I stopped at the gas station mini mart to buy some bananas on the way home from choir - that is the only shop that is open. It was about 9:30 PM. A woman with a small child, maybe 3 years old, was in line in front of me. She was buying candy - a lot of candy. Maybe half a shopping bag full. The child was picking out candy bars and throwing them in the bag. The child also had a cup of coffee. I kid you not. No, it wasn't hot chocolate. Coffee. The clerk said something about it being kind of late for the little one. The woman said, "Oh, she's always up until 1:30 or 2. Sometimes even later." Can you imagine? Is there a law against this sort of thing? Feeding your kid nothing but candy, letting a 3-year-old drink coffee? In a convenience store at night? WTF? I'm going to have nightmares about this.

              And yes, the woman was considerably overweight. The child - not yet.

              • That's very sad - and yes, should be considered child endangerment. I may have followed the woman home and called the authorities anonymously.

                • Okay, on the surface that's pretty horrendous. Coffee for a three-year old?!? But let's hope the child sleeps until 11 am. And just because there was only candy in the cart, does not mean that is all the child eats. After all, you eat more than bananas.

                  • True, Sabine --- and considering the mother was quite heavy - perhaps she eats the majority of the candy! But coffee for a toddler is just irresponsible parenting! Caffeine is not good for growing bones!

                    • No, I left out the part where she said that is all the child eats. She (the mother) said she won't eat anything else. Guess that's kind of an important part of the story! But I was so upset when I posted that last night. I should have tried to find out who it was. In small town like this I probably don't have to follow anyone home - I can just ask who it is. It is so hard to see stuff like this and not be able to help, or do something positive.

                      • OH my............ that's just bordering on child abuse!!! If the child gets hungry enough she will eat REAL food! BAD mother for giving in to the little girls demands for candy. She will end up obese and have diabetes by the time she's 10. Someone needs to do an intervention to help that mother learn some parenting skills.

                        • Quite a day yesterday. I met up with two internet friends - women I have known online since 1995. How odd it was to reminisce! So many shared memories even though we don't know each other in real life. It was a lot of fun. We went to the botanical garden, had lunch, and then went on a sailboat. I was pretty tired after this! Came home and watched my science shows, one about Africa and one about the building of the new World Trade Tower. Then there was a tremendous, and I do mean tremendous thunderstorm complete with hail! I will admit that was somewhat frightening - hailstones hitting the skylights right above my head was not the most pleasant thing I have experienced. And there was a horrible insect in my bed! That prevented me from really relaxing. Even after thoroughly inspecting the bed for wildlife, I was still creeped out. Still, I slept very well as usual, though I have been waking up somewhat groggy. Tonight is work, and I must have had enough time off because I am actually looking forward to it. I am so happy it is fall again and choir has started and soon there will be operas. Also I have a poetry workshop on Saturday and a library fund-raiser event on Saturday night.

                          Discovered a local breakfast/lunch place here has a gluten-free item on the menu - a veg pie (crustless) that is quite tasty. Accompanied by crudites and a fruit compote. Really nice. I am glad that I have a place I can eat if necessary.

                          • Had my first really good swim today. I've really been off since my summer hiatus. Today I felt I was really swimming and not just splashing around aimlessly. The pool was very crowded though. Very crowded. I should be glad it is getting so much use, but really I'm not.

                            The kombucha with the raspberry tea in it is my favorite. Really nice raspberry flavor, tart, and I always put in fresh lemon before I drink it. I bottled some yesterday, just plain, and I will bottle more tomorrow. My brewing has caught up with my consumption, I am happy to say!

                            Went to the farmers market and they had honeycrisp apples! Bought a bunch. Ate one in the car. Realized I hadn't eaten and I was hungry. Came home and had a red bell pepper with eggplant dip. Hey, I'm vegan!

                              Okay, there's no way to look for the positive in that situation. (Wait, were there NUTS in any of the candy bars?! Those are REAL food, right?)

                              Why do some people even HAVE children?!?

                              • Yes, in fact there were nuts in some of the candy bars. There were a couple of Butterfingers, too. They have butter, right? (That is a very poor joke.) I feel sorry for the cashier - she said she sees stuff like that all of the time. Oh dear, oh dear.

                                My adding fruit and a limited amount of potatoes is working very well. I feel very well, I have lost two pounds, and I have no cravings and am not getting hungry all of the time. Also my food budget has taken a nose dive, which I am very, very happy about. There are always good sales on fruit and all I do is pick it up and eat it - no prep required, and it generally lasts for quite some time in the fridge. Also I am not buying kombucha any more. What a savings! Brought six bottles of my latest brew to stash in the work fridge for next week. Should be nice and smooth by then.
