I’m not up to full speed right now due to some type of bug that has me in its grip, but I wanted to post something to get my mind off that horrid dental visit the other day. So here’s some little bits and pieces of stuff I’ve noticed the past week or three.
Did you know that the 6 food choices to boost your brain power are:
- Spinach and leafy greens
And did you ALSO know that of the 6 listed above, only ONE is not likely to cause an illness like Salmonella or eColi? Yup the only good candidate that won’t make you sick on the list above is ? Which do you think?
Here’s another one for you: There’s a study going around that claims to have proved that people who are spanked during childhood have lower IQs than those who weren’t. Spanking as adults was not mentioned. “Experts” claim there is a link between corporal punishment and later post-traumatic stress symptoms. I think it’s crap coz I got spankings regularly; in fact there were a few rather hefty whoopin’s I got as a young thing and my IQ is pretty good and I don’t suffer from post-traumatic stress. Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean someone isn’t following me. And the voices haven’t told me to actually do anything yet. So I think we can rule this one is a myth.
My horoscope the other day said, “If it weren’t for all the changes, you’d do just fine. Try to take the new stuff in stride.” Are you crazy? That has kept me awake for the past 3 nights worrying about any more changes than I’ve had in the last 10 months. I’ve met my quota of change, thank you Universe.
Did you know with the right tools you can pare your primping to 10 minutes or less? It’s true according to my local paper. I’m living proof – duct tape, spackle, a trowel, a hairbrush, and a toothbrush/toothpaste and I’m ready to greet the day easily in under 10 minutes. Crap what a waste of money this newspaper is.
Here’s my favorite tidbit: there is a company out there that is actually selling a product called Collagen Marshmallows. Uh-huh – these are little grapefruit-flavored puffs that are filled with collagen and supposedly eating them reduces wrinkles and inflammation in arthritis sufferers. They come from the U.K. – sorry can’t get them in the states yet. Maybe our Brit bloggers will send us some – the company is called Eat Yourself Beautiful. I just don’t like the idea that they taste like grapefruit – coz I usually use marshmallows in my hot chocolate and grapefruit and hot chocolate doesn’t seem like a good combination whether I have arthritis or not. Blechhhh.
And finally, did anyone watch Letterman Monday night as he apologized to his staff and sort of roundabout apologized to his wife? I was not impressed and I don’t usually watch him anyway but I think I’m going to boycott his program totally as I think he’s set a terrible example and has behaved abominably plus I am of the opinion he should be canned and thrown out on the street, but the network will never do that because he’s a celebrity. I would call him a scumbag but I understand saying things like that in a blog about a particular person can now get one in trouble – ya gotta love the freedom of speech thing going on. So I won’t call him a scumbag.
That’s it. I’m gonna keep taking my antibiotics and hope I get better soon. Cya l8r.
