  • Which all shows why numerical things tend to be a refuge for me - my perception is skewed. When I watched that one video about the evils of sugar, there was a part which showed how fructose is basically metabolized like alcohol. Did that make me think, "wow, fructose is almost as bad as alcohol?" Nope. It made me think, "wow, I had no idea alcohol was as bad as fructose."

    Drain bamage.

The simplicity of if a=b and b=c, then a=c calms me. When teachers in other subjects downgraded my work because of my politics, my math and science teachers could do no such thing. So it hits me on a very deep level when something as simple as figuring out what groceries cost confuses people.

      And that would be my rant for the day. Hope you are all well.
      We don't mind your rants Joanie dear! I'm with your brother on this one though, mostly when someone starts talking numbers my brain goes 'la la la la' and I can't even think logically for the few moments it would take me to figure it out. I have an appointment with the accountant next week and I'm having bad flashbacks from when we secured our mortgage *shudder*.

      Just found out my caterer can't help at a BIG function I have planned next week at work, so I'm now getting all stressed about cooking lunch for 25 by myself (I'm not a friggin chef). And tomorrow I have to fess up to my residents and tell them I'm leaving. Maybe some Lemoncello might settle my nerves?

        Nah - I just remembered that. La-z-boy owns Ohio. Snickers? Nah - now, if you would double-stack a righteous cheesecake... that would get me going!

              hmm.... I would have thought something like.... fructose and alchol... they are first cousins... no wonder Jerry Lee Lewis likes alcohol....

                  Honestly, you aren't missing much. The cookies are hard and meh-tasting, and the filling leaves a wad of something a lot like a wee shortening pea in your mouth. I would much rather go back to Europe and eat a real slice of cake - something that has a real character and clean ingredients, wheat notwithstanding.

                      i would need to avoid going back to europe. if i did, i would suddenly get over my gluten intolerance. their bread and cakes leave ours for dead so it is no real loss being GF here. if i was in southern europe, i would be in tears every day and i am not prone to tearful meltdowns. either that or i would have to drink alot of the local liquers. then i would be too smashed to notice i couldnt have the bread LOL

                        the breads in europe are much different (and better) than what passes for bread here.... I love a good crusty loaf of bread.... slathered with butter

                        • Sea, Oreos are almost as bad as Tootsie rolls. They look like chocolate, but they taste like chemicals. Very disconcerting.

                          LL, that would stress me out also. How fancy does it have to be? Do you have grocery stores that do "trays" for at least some of it? I tend to overcompensate when faced with that type of thing. I'd probably cook for 100 and then fall over in a dead faint just as it got served.

                          doc, LOL on the Jerry Lee Lewis reference - yep, you and I are pretty much right up there on the skewed brain thing.

                          General note: the MDA board is wonky tonight. I've had to delete a bunch of double posts, and twice when I hit "post quick reply," I got that warning that I was going to leave the page.

                            Definitely - there are some things the US has coughed up that nobody should know about!
