In the Tragic CW Moments department, I just found out more on the father whose funeral I've been asked to sing at tomorrow. He was found dead on the treadmill.
I imagine that low-fat, high-whole-grain, chronic cardio, & statins were all a part of the regimen his doctor gave him in the year preceding this tragedy.
It's so heart-breaking.
One of my favorite book quotes: "If she likes it, then it's feminine." This "she" in question had a bad habit of stealing her father's shirts and wearing them with overalls. Far more practical for spell casting :)
One of my friends was pushing me toward the makeup/hairdye/heels thing for a while. I'm rolling back towards jeans and T-shirts, but I am trying to limit the ones that I stole from my brothers :) When I dress up, I dress up. Otherwise, meh, whatever.
I need a CW funny, please.
Well I seem to be in good company here - my son is uncircumsized (I figure if your born with it, you probably need it for something) but seems to be the only guy I've ever seen intact (Moms see a lot of little dude's too - they aren't shy about peeing on trees, etc outside - not to mention diapers). I hate florals and have also been known to shop the men's dept when the women's was just not what I was in the mood for. I too tried the weak girly thing when I was younger as it seemed to work so well for others. Nobody bought it and it really pissed my brothers off when I claimed to be "too weak" to do some work. I would much rather have a body and mind that can conquer anything!

Eat whole grains for breakfast.
LOL, I always hated the overwhelming majority of flora prints, too. But I love long skirts. I'm very hippie at heart.
A lot of my friends' children are intact, too, but they're mostly in the same category as I am - hippie Catholic homeschoolers. My sisters both left their boys intact, without me pressuring them to at all, which was a pleasant surprise.
The end of my seriously "Funny CW" life was when I started to realize my body didn't love grains, and I went searching for info on what were the benefits of whole grains. I. could. not. find. any. Nowhere. Everything I found was talking about how superior whole grains are ... to refined grains.

It amazes me to see such misinformation. sure they think they are doing the right thing and if we PB types speak up well we are clearly a bunch of nutters. Fat cant be good for you. I wanna deluge people with information and hold their faces in it till they see the truth.
sigh...... I wonder if we can sue them as a class action for will fully spreading inaccurate health information.

I've gotten comments about my belly being too big, my boobs being too small and a number of other snide remarks aboout my body. I've never been turned down for The Bits not being up to par. I think most guys figure if it exists, it's good enough.

I love long skirts too, but tend to only wear them to dress up. I have to admit that I'm definitely a hippie at heart, being a child of the 60's and all. I think I outed myself this week though since I put some very PURPLE streaks in my hair! We appear to be a very conservative family to most on the outside, but I gotta admit I've got quite a bit of crazy at heart.

Someone writes to the expert:
[QUOTE]"I have been through the diabetic checklist online and I don’t think I am diabetic. However, from time to time I get light-headed and shaky, and desperately need food. This often happens midmorning even if I have eaten a big bowl of bran flakes for breakfast. Any suggestions?"[/QUOTE]
Chorus from MDA forum: [I]Wow, even after bran flakes for breakfast? Imagine that![/I]
[QUOTE]"[COLOR=#282828][FONT=arial]In cases of mild hypoglycaemia, the symptoms should stop as soon as you eat or drink – the best choice is something that is easily digested and high in simple sugars or carbohydrates such as a glass of fruit juice or a biscuit. In terms of prevention, try to eat small meals and snacks every three hours. A diet rich in fruit and vegetables, whole grain foods and legumes is recommended. Usually foods that are high in fibre, such as bran flakes, are a good choice as they are absorbed slowly and help maintain a constant blood glucose level. But if you’re experiencing symptoms midmorning, a lighter breakfast and midmorning snack (a banana or whole-grain crackers and cheese) might be better.[/FONT][/COLOR]"[/QUOTE]
