  • Wow Nutmeg, it continues to amaze me when diabetic people act like non-sugar carbs don't matter... "didn't add any calories to my day" she says? Uhhh YEAH as she just said it added 190 calories! That's a pretty big percentage of the average day's calories! Egads.

    Meanwhile, at my workplace...

    Coworker: Wow, you've lost weight! How are you managing it?
    Me: Yep, 65 pounds so far. It's basically a high-fat diet, lower on the carb side but --
    Coworker: Oh no, you shouldn't eat a high-fat diet, you'll gain all that weight back!!
    Me: Uh, but that's how I lost it to start with, so logically --
    Coworker: It'll catch up with you soon, then!
    Me: ...

    Logic FAIL. Also, letting me finish sentences FAIL.

          From a person I know that is diabetic
          I walk into a friend's house who is diabetic. He is sitting on the couch with a nearly empty box of cookies. I look at him, he gets my drift and says "what? they're sugar free".

              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!"

                Heh, nope. His ankles are fine, it's the fact that I can't come even close to wrapping both my hands around the muscle that is rather astonishing (I don't have small hands, and there's probably a 2-3 inch gap beyond that). Nice kilt legs.

                  I especially love the adverts that use emotional blackmail to imply that you are KILLING your BABIES and GRANNIES if you don't give them this shit.

                      I can't wrap my hands around my calves either.
                      In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                      • I thought how my stomach felt before was the normal sensations of a working stomach. Now I know it was actually feeling tender, very bloated and uncomfortable. I'd been that way all my life, I didn't know. And what about invisible problems.

                          yeah, but...but... KILLING BABIES, and GRANNIES is like my favoritest thing ever, so if I can do it legally, but NOT buying something... wait, no... wait *boom*head*explodes*from*trying*to*figure*out*the* logic*behind*not*wanting*to*kill*babies*grannies*

                            It's ok, as of last night if you don't buy Dettol you're now killing BABIES in the HOSPITAL as well as suitably ethnic disaster VICTIMS....


                            Cynical?
                            Heh.

                              • I was at a family's friends house for passover. She was starting to cook broccoli on the stove. When she took out the gigantic bottle of corn oil I almost vomited.
