        And Joanie, that cat picture! You two cheered me up!
        I'm glad to hear that! As an ex-class clown, I love to make people smile or laugh.

        Foamy head could be disconcerting...

        • Tuesday, March 18, 2014

          Afternoon coffee break. Where I ponder the meaning of life, liberty, and the happiness of pursuit. (Yeah, yeah, I know.) Read journals. Enjoy my last cuppa for the day. Dark roasted. Little stove top espresso pot. A teaspoon of coconut oil. All blended to frothy delicious goodness. Often even better than my morning cup.

          My question to myself: Why is it that I can see an overweight woman (like Tyne Daly for example), and think that sheís beautiful, but when I weighed 200+ pounds, all I wanted to do was hide from the world? [/serious]

          Tuesday is my favorite night for TV, even if I donít get to see it Ďtil Wednesday morning. I came late to Supernatural because generally I donít like buddy type shows. But Sam and Dean Winchester have shown me the light. A little gore, some demons and monsters, and lots of humor Ė a great combo. The Originals took my favorite characters (except for Damon) out of Vampire Diaries and made a show where the spin-off, imo, is far better than the original. The only bummer is that I was looking forward to maybe doing some extra work for the show, only to learn that, while the story takes place in New Orleans, itís mostly filmed in Atlanta.

          Something to munch on while sampling all the beers in the world:


          Iíve been thinking about the beers. Iíve tasted fruity beers, and havenít found one that I like. Mostly they taste like fruity soda (no like) with a faint back taste of beer. Since coconut worked for me, maybe banana would. Iíd love to try the coffee flavored one because COFFEE.

          For me, avocado is too mild to put in anything except guac. Avocado ice cream, pudding, etc., cover the taste with sugar. OTOH, maybe a grassy taste wouldnít be bad, so perhaps I was too judgey on the spirulina, and Iíd definitely try the kelp. Iíve had stout that is described as having chocolate notes and itís good. Oh, and Iíd definitely try the one made with hot peppers Ė if only to prove what a macho bad-assed woman I am. (ROFL at me being macho.)

          Pizza beer? I have no idea. My first reaction is one of just shaking my head. Seems like pizza beer would ruin both the pizza and the beer. But Iím like that. I love hot dogs, and I like corn bread a lot, but I find corn dogs really distasteful.

          Cat poo beer? No, just on principle. Domesticating civet cats just so that they can be force-fed coffee beans to poop out for our enjoyment seems mean. (Oops, that may have ventured back to serious. )

          I may however, have to find some of the Rocky Mountain Oyster beer for when I finally get it up to take a whack at the lamb oysters in the freezer.

          A couple of news clips that I found online that I thought were amusing:



          You wouldnít think a mistake like that could be madeÖ




          For those not from around these parts, itís Mississippi.

          I hear a seal. Like down the block. Why would there be a seal in the middle of the city? Maybe itís just a dog with laryngitis? Can dogs get that?

          • Why, when I see that sweet kitty cuddled with that thing, is it all I can think of is that I hope it was washed first so kitty doesn't get cooties?

            I am still over weight but I have dropped from a size 20 to a 14. Some days I feel hot and some days I feel like I am still that obese but then I have to remind myself my weight does not define me or make me a bad person. I think, most of the time, we are our worst and toughest critics. Of course, it doesn't help when you know that there are people that think they are better than you merely because they are thin. Of well. My dogs love me.

            Speaking of dogs, they can get laryngitis. They can also suffer from a paralyzed larynx, which can make them sound like a barking seal if it is advanced. It is common in Labs. One of my late Labs had a mild case of it.

            Burrito, baby? Sounds like a reasonable mistake to make. Stuff like that soooo rarely happens at Walmart.

              • Good morning! After a week of relatively normal sleep, the insomnia got me. I woke up about 10:30am. Blurgh.

                LOL on the cooties! I thought it was chocolate. (These are a few of my favorite things...)

                I love you, too. It is a shame that too many people think the cover of the book tells all about the book. I am very critical of myself in some areas. From 20 to 14 is an excellent accomplishment. It's about when the steering wheel seems farther away even though no one has moved the seat back.

                Poor puppy laryngitis! Logically, that's probably what I heard.

                Walmart - where you can bet that someone will get trampled to death the day after Thanksgiving.

                Ha! That's a colloquialism that translates on both sides of the pond.

                It's funny, but I thought of you and doc when I saw those chips. Making a real haggis (without lungs because they're illegal here) is on my bucket list.

                When I lived in SF, one of my apartments was a few blocks from a place that I think was named Mission Burrito. The size of the burritos was enough for two meals for a normal person. But I was young and eating one meal a day, so I'd pack one of those suckers down in one meal. I never really saw burritos that large again until the country started super sizing everything. And the Man v Food guy scares me. I have this gnawing feeling that he's going to drop dead on camera.

                • Wednesday, March 19, 2014

                  I woke up with a splitting headache this morning. Which is weird because except for the occasional sinus thing when seasons change, it rarely happens. Too little sleep from the insomnia? Maybe, but it never gave me a headache before. Alcohol? Nope, not for awhile.

                  I know Ė too few calories! Amazingly, with my love of chowing down larger than girl-sized amounts of food, Iíve eaten fewer than 800 calories two days in a row. I donít usually do more than one day of that low, and I think it made my head angry.

                  So, tonight Iím making a nice fatty ground lamb meatloaf with rice.

                  I need a new spatula. I melted my non-stick one. I didnít mind using it all bubbly and warped, but then the handle broke off, so now itís a bubbly, warped spatula, with a two-inch handle.

                  I liked Markís post today. A few things resonated with how I feel in general about nutrition.
                  "Upon making (or stealing) a kill, the homo sapiens in East Africa wasted nothing. Markings on bones indicate expert butchery. Meat was completely removed. Bones were stripped of marrow and smashed to get every last drop. Heads were prized for the ďfatty, nutrient-rich, energy-dense within-head food resources.Ē Adipose tissue and offal Ė all of it Ė was eaten. They werenít just eating eland loin, in other words, but utilizing everything.

                  Takeaway: Eating the entire animal isnít just economical, itís the kind of ďmeat consumptionĒ weíre strongly adapted to. Diverging from that may be problematic. Eating only muscle meat and eschewing the fat, bones, and offal is likely evolutionary discordant."

                  And this part,
                  "What went down hundreds of thousands of years ago in a far-off region in East Africa isnít just ďthe past,Ē after all. Itís our past. Itís our story. Your story. And even though there were and are many more stories still to come from other places and times, those first humans squinting into the sun as it dipped down below the edge of the known world, turning toward the fire and the dance and the feast, slurping up some freshwater mollusk or sharing a split, roasted femur with a pal or lover Ė they made us who we are today. Their everyday habits, their dietary choices, their responses to the demands of the day all unwittingly paved our way, for better or for worse.

                  Itís good to acknowledge that."

                  is kind of beautiful.

                  And finally. You know how sometimes magazines have these cute ways to make food look pretty for special occasions? And you know how sometimes itís a lot more difficult than you imagined it would be? You are not alone!


                  At least you can tell what these were supposed to be.









                  Perhaps my favorite because I can imagine this person finally saying, ď**** it!Ē
                  Then walking away without decorating them.

                  • I'm so very glad you're back. I didn't want to say anything before in case you disappeared again.
                    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                      • Happy to see your journal resurrected, Joanie. It was a sad day when a few internet dissenters led you to feeling you had to abandon it. I see you as the kind of gal I'd be happy to share my vodka with .

                        When I was in Galveston last month, we went to one of those tropical rainforest garden pavilions, the sort of glass enclosed pyramid types of things. I spied a lone sloth hanging high in the trees, sleeping of course. And I thought of Joanie. I'll see if I still have the photo on my phone, though it was high up and likely rather hard to see.

                        Anyway, great to see new weird stuff to ponder on here!

                                Thank you, Greensprout! I have such a bad temper sometimes, and I had to slow down visiting a place that led me to give in to it. I'm like the placid bull in a field. 99% of the time, I'm just mellow and loving life. But I can turn back into the 20something year old b*tch I was when the right buttons are pressed and I forget to laugh.

                                I still have the spatula. In fact I'm thinking that if the handle is in the current bag of garbage, I could super glue it back on.

                                The sheep are hilarious. I've made deviled eggs exactly once. While I have no problems with complicated recipes, tedium can drive me to distraction. Cutting a dozen eggs in half, then carefully scooping out the middle. Never (probably) again. I can't even imagine doing those scalloped edges - just kill me now.

                                Especially the eggs. LOL. A little homemade mayo, half in the food processor and the other half rough chopped, a chopped up scallion... Plop it atop a tomato salad - just as good in half the time.

                                If I ever get sent to Purgatory, my time will no doubt be spent cutting the connective tissue out of beef heart, making deviled eggs, and standing on long lines to return a $4 item.
