Anyway, before this gets off on another nerd tangent, another venting about my roommates: So two of them are a couple, and the other day they came home with BAGS UPON BAGS of groceries. I mean the whole counter was covered. Most of the stuff was packaged and boxed, of course, and I was sure they wouldnt be able to get it all into their pantry space but somehow they did. A surprising chunk of it was perishables like vegetables and stuff, which of course took up an entire shelf in the fridge. Point of the story: they have hella food in the house.
Yesterday, both of them had the day off and one wasnt feeling well so they both were hanging around the house. Great time to eat all this food they bought, right? NOPE. They ordered takeout.
“Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor

I haven't been to a doctor since and I'm working up the nerve to approach a local clinic because I know being medicated for my thyroid at least is important.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
One of my best friends is always worried about her fat intake. Whatev...
Anyway, today she told me that she avoids eggs because they're too high in fat.
I couldn't help myself. "No! Eggs are AMAZING food! They're like perfect nutrition you can hold in the palm of your hand!"
She replied. "Yes, but there's so much fat in the yolk. I just throw it away and eat the white."
I told her to give me all of her egg yolks next time. So sad.
Recently posted on Facebook that I had been migraine free for 10-weeks (since starting this lifestyle)! I had them about weekly. Some fellow sufferers asked what I did, as they had them much more frequently. Knowing it was a bad idea to fully explain, I just said "I cut all grains and sugar and they stopped. Oh, and a minor change, I replaced all the CFL light bulbs in the apartment with LED ones."
The reply: "That second suggestion sounds much easier to implement. Or at least much more pleasant. "
OK, have fun with your migraines (takes industrial-size bottle of Excedrin out of purse and puts it in rarely-used corner of bathroom cabinet).
