    Whatcha thinking about now?

    I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I think I had a piece of cake about a year ago. I don't eat bread much, either. Mostly fish, eggs, meat, cheese, veggies, etc. Some honey because it's good for me. Pizza once in a blue moon because I love it, crust and all. Yet my metabolism is so awful. If I did eat junk I wouldn't fit through the door!!!

    I use a ton of wheat based products... bread, biscuits, croissant, tons of noodles. Stuffed shells, spaghetti, lunchmeat sandwiches, pb&j. Etc. Fried rice is about as far as I get from a non starchy meal... except maybe stew. But I still add crackers to my own.

    Re: What are you thinking about?

    I think all this talk makes me shrug. I lost 40 lbs last year. I still eat cake. It's not about what you eat, if that's your goal, just how much you eat. Certainly veggies fill you up more than cake, but any lifestyle that makes any one food the enemy seems just silly to me. Your body turns the vast majority of it into glucose anyway.

    Some people like to eat different, and that's fine, but don't let them convince you its the only way to be healthy. Sugar is not evil. It's just a food.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

Gunna do wood burned bookmarks (already got 10 drawn up and ready for time to burn them), hair pin wraps with polymer clay dragons on the ends, and some "Welcome" signs for homes and stuff.

    Re: What are you thinking about?

    So, being relatively bed-ridden, and drifting between wakefulness and fitfull sleep, I've been watching various $#!t on Netflix. Most of the shows or movies that I've started to watch continued on long after I'd fallen asleep (again and again).

    I found a stand-up comedy special that sounded like it had great potential for being vastly hilarious. "The Muslims are Coming!" Which is hosted, and stars, a handful of very talented "Muslim Americans", doing their tour of FREE shows, mostly in a bid to try an convince a great number of dipshit Americans that "Islam" is not the Arabic term for "kill Americans", I guess. I watched about 10-15 minutes. I then had to shut it off.

    As talent as these wonderful people are, their attempts to unite PEOPLE, through humor, was far outweighed by the snippets and brief clips of some of the worst bigots every paid to be NEWS anchors, pundits, average mindless twits -on the street - all coming together in an overwhelming antagonism.

    It's supposed to be a comedy show. Laugh! But no. I was just getting more and more pissed, disgusted, repulsed, and just simply trying to suppress the urge to throw something heavy and explosive at these anti-Muslim idiots-on-parade, everywhere.

    I feel really bad for that handful of wonderful, talented artists, in that they have to piss up a rope to prove they aren't dangerous terrorists. They really have a long hard road ahead of them, filled with hate, accusations, blame and immense hurdles, being constantly thrown in their path.

    That is what I'm thinking about. I feel ashamed, having to admit to being part of the human race.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Why'd I get an Iphone? I hate Iphones and I'm starting to remember why. On the bright side, it's a phone and siri is entertaining.

    I don't look at the nutritional info. Just the ingredient list.
    This is similar to what I try to do, too. I find I loose weight if I follow the traditional "diabetic diet" and work to keep everything reasonable, not too processed, and my blood sugar even over the day.
