  • Things I learned tonight... Katie Morgan (ala Katie Morgan's Sex Tips/Sex Quiz) is cute.
    Yes, I have watched her porn previously... but her HBO show is cool.

    Thing I learned earlier this afternoon...
    My nearly 100lb White GSD can somehow make himself nearly INVISIBLE and try to kill me.
    He tripped me, nearly breaking my toe, causing me to fall onto my right hip and elbow.
    I just laid there a while... OUCH.
    He likes to lay close to me... and I turned and my foot caught him and I fell over him.
    I don't know what part of him beat my toe up so bad (middle toe, right foot).
    Baaaad dooooog!

    AND, on to the rant about food...
    Or not.
    I'm still researching and processing.
    Dinner was good tonight.
    I found some organic, low sodium, chicken sausages... major score for me! They were actually low sodium enough that I would consider eating them, so really low, not just a token labeling thing.
    So, I made myself a "Low Oxalate" dinner of onion, green apple, and cabbage with sausage... Deee-LISH-uuuussss!
    And... I won't have to birth a jagged little rock from my kidney through my urethra from eating it, bonus.

    And had to make husband something completely different...
    Which is likely to be the theme in my house most days from here on out, at least for sides.

    I find this concept to be a complete pain in the ass at this point because he doesn't like most of the substitutions and alternatives I will be eating.
    Also... restaurants... eating in them will be an EPIC pain in the ass as well.

    • There is an experiment on my head right now...
      1 part Splat Aqua Rush... 3 parts hair conditioner... I want pastel aqua hair...
      The recipe on the internez said this is how to do it... BUT, my base isn't exactly "white".

      I'm probably going to learn some sort of valuable lesson.
      Like... leave this shit to the PROS!
      I may be trying to FIX neon green hairs later? *shrug*

      Maybe I'll let my friend Jess get liquored up and give her 3 or 4 colors and let her go to town to see what happens if this goes badly.
      WEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

      • The other night (this being a rather vague relative opening fragment meaning sometime in the last few weeks) I watched the movie Last Days, which is supposed to be some sort of account of the end of Kurt Cobain's life, along with the strangeness that was the general behavior of the rest of the band members and such. Only, because it is NOT the way any of the surviving folks would like things to be portrayed... all names were changed... and blah, blah, blah. I found it incredibly disturbing that he could have been so deeply depressed and everyone just let him self destruct. So sad.


        (**edit- this post was mostly about the above 'trigger' song creeping in on my subconscious**)




        And in other news... I've finally been found worthy of a spot in the "Funny MDA Forum Quotes" thread!

        • Cori, did you happen to notice the pair of "missionaries" that showed up at the door in that movie?

          Those are my sons. And, yes, they are twins.

            Ahhh, cool!
            Yes... your boys are movie starzzzzzzzzzz!

            The fellow that played "not Kurt", Michael Pitt, went on to play a lovely young chap in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire (which I do enjoy), but he was killed off at the end of last season. *sob*
            I liked his character, but alas, he got just a bit too big for his britches... which is the same end that may soon come of Margaret if she doesn't tone her self down a bit as well too.
            Old Nucky... he isn't all that tolerant, ya know!

            • A long whiney post about food.
              MUCH Low Sodium, Low Oxalate, Primal Diet nonsense to follow.

              This will be easier if I list the things I CAN eat... with some broad strokes for foods that I CANNOT because they cover so much territory.
              If it's not listed, it's safe to assume that I CANNOT eat it.
              Feel free to be completely aghast on my behalf... I know I am!

              I can have milk products. Because I drink delicious fresh, grass fed, raw stuff... Yay!
              Adjusted for low sodium issues of course... which leaves out a load of cheeses.

              I can have coffee...
              I shall LIVE!

              I can have meats!
              Yummy... Also adjusted for anything that would include sodium.
              For some reason tuna in a can, not so great... the sodium makes it a problem anyway.

              I cannot eat anything Soy... who cares right!
              Except for the small amounts of Soy sauce used for dipping sushi on occasion, and Miso used for soup on occasion.

              I cannot eat nuts...
              None of them. Fuck.

              I cannot eat grains...
              Except white rice, that's cool... sushi!
              And wild rice is OK too evidently, as is fresh sweet corn (and popcorn in small doses)...
              All things coconut are FINE!

              I cannot eat legumes...
              Except for black eyed/purple hull peas (strangely LOW in all bad things), baby lima/butterbeans, and Green peas/sugar snap peas/snow peas, so I may partake of them on occasion if I want something starchy.
              (Also OK, cooked mung beans... and green split peas, like for soup. *shrug*)

              I cannot eat potatoes...
              Any of them. Fuck.

              I CANNOT HAVE CHOCOLATE!
              I'm pretty sure the universe hates me.

              I cannot have black tea or green tea...
              I CAN have sodas... umm, NO. I don't drink that shit...

              Things I CAN have... most any alcohol...
              Oh wait... I can't drink anyway. FML.

              Listy, listy, list... things I "CAN" have...

              Herbal tea, Rooibos tea, WATER, Jello, Jello pudding (not chocolate), apples, apricots, avocado, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, goji berries, strawberries, cherries, currants, dates, grapes/rasins, citrus fruit, lychee, mango, melons, nectarines/peaches, passionfruit, pears, pineapple, plums, cellophane rice noodles, tapioca shreds pasta, kelp noodles, asparagus*, green beans*, bok choy, broccoli*, brussel sprouts*, cabbages, carrots*, cauliflower, cucumbers, raw fennel, arugula, broccoli raab, collards/dino kale greens*, pea greens, jicama, kohlrabi, lettuce, mushrooms, yellow onions, sweet colored peppers /no green, ripe black plantains, pumpkin, hard winter squash, radish, rutabaga*, seaweed, alfalfa sprouts, summer squash, tomato paste in small portions for flavor, fresh tomatoes, turnip root, water chestnuts, watercress...
              (Note- anything with an * needs special handling. It must be boiled and have the water drained away. Also, about half of this list, or so, is "Medium Oxalate" foods... so they don't get eaten a lot, and only in small portions. Yay.)

              I don't want to get into herbs and spices right now... I can't have cinnamon!!! And Chili powder!!!
              I mean, a light sprinkle of them is fine... but enough to make a good hearty CHILI and eat it... no.
              I don't even know what to do with that.
              Fine... here's a list of freaking spices I need to avoid... anything over the barest sprinkle is too much.
              Allspice, anise, celery seed, cinnamon, clove, coriander seed, cumin seed, curry powder, fennel seed, ground ginger, lemon peel, tumeric, and raw anaheim peppers, caraway seeds, poppy seed, sesame seed.
              Turdburglars!

              Feel free to throw out questions... I shall delight in shooting down any "But surely you can eat THIS" queries with sad little "no, i cannot" answers.

              • that is a really sucky situation of suckage. *hugs*
                I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                • I'm a little peeved that NO ONE noticed how perfectly snarky the theme song I picked out for Grizz in the Iodine:Redeux thread fit him... So. Truly Perfect.
                  *sigh*
                  They are missing out on my observations of greatness.

                  Almost as perfect as THIS song/vid mash fits that entire mess...

                  Yeah, even BETTER than the original Gangnam style!

                  I'm feeling random.
                  Likely more weirdness to come as the evening progresses.
                  I just can't explain it.

                          • Forgot to take my meds this morning...
                            Why, Oh whyyyyyy do I feel some sort of unconscious need to test shit to see if it's "working"?
                            Or maybe I was just forgetful...

                            I felt like my brain was going to try and spill out through my left eye socket.
                            Kind of still feels that way... Bleh.
                            Baaaadddd me!

                            Then... I logged on this evening and read the "fat hate" thread.
                            FML.
                            It's almost amazing that those "thins" will even dirty themselves by talking to those of us the don't deem slim enough yet, though they won't define that "size", anonymously through a computer.
                            I have less than charitable feelings about people who are like that... because I KNOW that they do NOT reserve their judgement for when they see a heavy person in a grocery store with "pizza" or "a bunch of rubbish" in the cart. No they don't. They judge every fricking time they see us. If they see fat people at the gym working out and over time not having results, they whisper to their friends that that one "must be stuffing it in later"... or whatever. I heard that shit when I was thin and healthy working out all the time. And they judge when they see heavy women shopping for clothes, or pretty much anything else. I've either heard it directly from the mouths of people within earshot or had it said to me.
                            There is a word for that one can use for particular brand of pretending to "care" about someones else's anonymous health so that one can gloat because their own pants are a smaller size...
                            Schadenfreude!

                            It is not flattering, no matter how awesome Avenue Q is.
                            Not flattering at all.
                            ADULTS acting like that... to me, it makes them lower with whale shit.
                            Because that's reserved for the behavior of small children whose mothers haven't SCARED the allHOLYpee out of them yet for talking with their friends like that.

                            Their whole premise "everyone just needs to be the best they can every day" "Be more awesome"... where awesome = thinner... WTF.

                            All that shit has made me want to do is stay the fuck home, so that I'm not accidentally "seen" with the loaf of bread and fucking poptarts in the cart that my husband still eats.
                            And allthegodsforfuckingbid that I get "seen" with that pint of "Ben&Jerrys" icecream that I share with him once every few weeks... cause my ass certainly isn't THIN enough to deserve that!

                            I also learned that I'm not living up to my "potential" on several other levels, and that that's not healthy.
                            SOCIAL for instance.
                            *sigh*

                              • Speaking of "Thins":
                                I am fairly slender, I'll freely admit. I am not of the ballerina stature or the modeling toothpick. I come from working stock, so I have a useful form to my body and breeder's hips. That said, a toothpick decided to get up in my business while I was in Chicago for business.
                                She decided that it was her god given right to tell me that the deep dish I was eating would make me "even heavier." I had just gotten off two planes and was eating for the first time that day at 10PM. It took all I had not to go nuclear on her.
                                "I am a size 2, maybe a size 4 on a bad day. I was unaware that was considered heavy, more to the point, I really don't care what you think. Go suck on the teat of your diet cancer drink and leave me and my coworker alone."
                                She looked positively aghast that I would talk to her that way (she would've clutched her pearls had she had them) and started looking around like she wanted to start a fight.
                                "Honey, are you sure you wanna mess with Texas?" I said, pulling my knife out of my pocket and displaying it on the table.
                                She turned white and walked away.
                                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
