  • I think you forgot plastic litter boxes in the "Do not eat!" list. I just can't get Bandit to understand that...we go through maybe one litter box every six months because he chews the sides down. I give him wooden and flavored sticks and everything, I think he just likes the fact that the plastic is kinda chewy.

    I even tried spraying that Bitter Apple stuff on the sides so he wouldn't do that.

    He just licked it all off. O.O We never said he was smart. Just cute.

    • Me chatting with my friend last night:

      Me: I just made the best dinner ever. It was so delicious!
      Friend: What did you have?
      Me: Well you know I'm moving soon so I am cleaning out my ice box. I made pork meat balls yesterday but I saved the fat. I defrosted thin sliced beef seasoned it and cooked it in the pork fat. Then I took the beef n pork fat and put a few spoon fulls on my veggies.
      Friend: Eating a lot of meat isn't good for you. It causes cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
      Me: ... *facepalm*
      Height: 5'2"
      Starting weight: 180lbs
      Current weight 130lbs

        i just had a friend tell me eating meat was bad too the other day! I didn't really respond. lol
        I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

          It must be going around. Was there a news story or something this week? During lunch the other day, a friend told me I ate too much meat and would get cancer. I told her that was why I could squat more weight than she could. Interestingly, she didn't have anything to say to that. :P

          • It's one of those days....

            The woman in the cubicle next to me is pouring water into a cup - one of my coworkers asked her what she is doing, and she explained. Apparently, she measures out exactly how much water she drinks order to ensure she gets 64 ounces every day. I knew she measured out her food, carefully counting and tracking the calories in her morning oatmeal and mid-day M&Ms, but water, really? I can't even imagine being that obsessive....

            • I had a coworker who hated drinking water (or anything) and ended up with kidney failure repeatedly as a result, so she basically had to force herself to measure how much water she drank every day to make sure she got enough.

              BUT, Tawny, I seriously doubt your coworker is in a situation like that. I am sure she's just buying into the urban legend of getting eight 8-oz glasses of water daily. I can't imagine being that obsessive either!

                Now I'm a knitter and crocheter. There's a great knitting site called Ravelry which is where I found out about MDA (on one of the off topic forums that doesn't talk about knitting at all!)

                YAY for Ravelry! Another knitter here. Must go find the Paleo discussion there.

                      The one that was getting tossed in my direction was the Red Meat = Type 2 Diabetes!!! article. I read the study, saw that "read meat" meant pizza, sandwiches, and hot dogs, and told them what I thought.

                      And then Mark posted his response, and I sent them to that, too.

                          Wow. The best (worst) part about this book is the author: he has no neck, and not in the linebacker way.

                          • Sorry for the bunny tangent, but just wanted to pitch in my thoughts on the safe plants lists floating around. I have no idea who compiles those, but in what world is lettuce unsafe for bunnies? And clover?! Oxalis??? Also, my rabbit will practically gnaw through the fence to get at our plum trees. I keep a small pile of leaves and twiggy branches in his outdoor pen for him to play in. He strips the leaves off and bruxes on the wood. Maybe these things are toxic, I don't know, but he's been eating piles of the stuff for years, including all the snail-nibbled lettuce leaves and a lettuce core almost every day. I have a couple kinds of oxalis (my favorite is pink wood sorrel) in a few shady spots in the yard and loooooove it in a salad mix. It gets a bad rap for oxalic acid (like spinach) but I haven't been able to find any citation for the idea that it's unsafe, except in massive amounts.

                            I hear ya on the pet food bill... happily if you have the storage space and a nearby horse-friendly feed store, a bale of sweet orchard or timothy hay is a tiny fraction of the price of pet bunny food and it takes us most of a year to go through a bale.

                              Lettuce/cabbage etc isn't poison, it gives them diarrhea and gassy tummy.

                              • I think this is perhaps more appropriate for a "saddest CW moments" thread... during the summer when the place we usually practice is closed, my dance school rents space after hours from a daycare that has a huge unfurnished room ideal for dancing. Anyway, I was in their kitchen getting water and on the fridge was a list of kids and their allergies or dietary restrictions for the minders to have a quick reference. Among the usual nut and shellfish allergies or religious restrictions on certain meats, there were 3 kids noted as being "vegetarian." Seriously? Vegetarian pre-schoolers? I know their parents mean well, but I can't help but feel horrible for these poor kids and how their and their own children's health will be compromised in the long-run.
