So the fam wanted to go to the local pizza joint for dinner last night. Me, in my dim brilliance decide that i will see if they will make an UN -pizza. This small town place struggled with the NO DOUGH AT ALL concept but in the end i had my "pan of meat and veggies " as the cook called it and everyone was happy. Even though there was a lot shaking heads...lol

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.

So... I'm watching the 1939 version of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, the verion with Merle Oberon and Lawence Olivier. Great stuff. There's a scene where Kathy runs off into a storm, trying to follow Heathcliff, but she is found close to death and brought back to Wuthering Heights. It skips to a few days later, where the doctor is checking up on her. I had to rewind because I wasn't sure I heard it correctly, but the doctor's advice for her was:
"Nothing I can say except to keep her in the sun and give her plenty of cream and butter."
Now it's more like "Nothing I can say except to take these pills that probably won't do anything, and give her plenty of low-fat yogurt and heart-healthy whole grains every 2 hours, because human beings will die if they don't eat 5 small meals a day. By the way, your BMI is too high. You should work on that."
Thank god our medical knowledge has progressed to where we know the sun is deadly and saturated fat will give you a heart attack, amirite? Sigh..

Went to the swimming pool today. Now I consider myself overweight, and stalled for the last few months due to paying attention to people suggesting moderate carbs here, plus Wine. And hurt my back (seems better now, but not checked out yet) so I did a lot less exercises than usual. But no matter. I may consider myself fat but those people at the pool were really far gone. There was one 11 yr old lad with a much bigger stomach than me. Many children sporting pot bellies. Great sows of mothers spilling out of their bathing costumes. All the guys had fat shoulders and back. Even the ones who looked like they had been working out, with a bit of belly overhang. Universal metabolic syndrome. Kids seem to start getting overweight at about four. Only thin people were the odd pale looking woman with no muscles at all, skinny-fat, who looked ill.
I wonder if there isn't a special metabolic syndrome for men in their twenties who work out. They have a certain look that looks wrong somehow, and don't seem to have any hair on them at all whereas a real man is hair from his top lip to his toes. Something not quite right about how they look that I can't put my finger on.
OMFG, that has to be one of the funniest lines I've read of all time. It sounds like something from a catty gay guy writing a gossip column in 1854....Great sows of mothers spilling out of their bathing costumes.
I feel like a lot of men are starting to look very feminine, but I think the lack of hair is waxing or shaving.
I saw one in the lawnmower repair place. Dressed, obviously. There is something wrong about the combination of very thin arm and leg hair (wasn't shaved) and being plump-muscly. Like the muscles are puffed out. Genuinely strong men do not look like that and are look a lot more masculine. Any photo of a man from the 1970s or even 80s looks more masculine. I think they are eating too many female hormones somewhere and there is some connection to body building. One of the guys at work literally developed man boobs before he was fired, after spending a lot of time in the gym and beginning to look like that. I must have had four times his body fat and still had a smaller cleavage. There is something about the way they look that is not right and not manly.I feel like a lot of men are starting to look very feminine, but I think the lack of hair is waxing or shaving.
