The Update.

Did a half day at work today.  Hadn’t felt abysmally bad when I got up.  I opened my eyes and said “Whelp, I don’t want tuh get up, but I think I can.”

And so I did.  But after four awful hours I said “Whelp, I guess I is gonna go home.”

Whispering as I did… “One… one… one… one…” in a really tiny voice.

I got home and called the nurse at the pain clinic – she got back to me pretty quickly.  Turns out, in spite of what they say, not only can the pain increase but so can the numb and tingly stuff.  It’s really alarming when you start getting number extremities that also hurt.  She says that the stuff they shoot in there is pretty irritating stuff and can make all the stuff in there really inflamed.  Which is really really counter-intuitive to me because I thought it was supposed to be anti-inflammatory meds that they were injecting, but no, they are irritants themselves – like paint thinner, kerosene, and copier fluid.

So there.  That’s the day.

And, if you choose to read on in this post, be aware… I’m not in the best of moods.

Here’s a quick dose of humor to get you through it if you should decide to go on.  I’ve made lamb confit ravioli before and done garlic confit, but I’ve never ever heard of that kind of confit before.  Ever.  Nope.

While we’re talking about attention-whores, I thought we could skip over to this one for a bit because I’m (surprisingly) tired of talking about myself.

The butterball morbidly obese large woman person is 700lbs and wants to reach her goal of 1600lbs in her lifetime.

Despite warnings from her doctor that her bizarre experiment could kill her, Susanne insists she wants to break the record.

Dr Patrick Flite said: ‘She’s really playing Russian roulette with her life with this goal. There are well-documented complications that come with morbid obesity.

I would never encourage anyone to be doing what Susanne is doing.’

Dr Flite said Susanne’s medical checks showed no current problems, adding: ‘She’s capable of making her own decisions.  I don’t see any psychiatric problems or anything else wrong.’

Gee, I see two people with psychiatric problems right off the bat – the butterball and her doctor.

She can’t work because she’s so friggin’ fat.  Someone is paying for her food.  I have to ask “Why is someone paying for her to eat the amount of food daily that would feed eight to ten other people?”

‘I want to break the stigma that being fat is a bad thing,’ she said. ‘I remind other fat people that it is OK for them to be that way.

‘The message I want to get across is for people to accept others for who they are.’

Who said there shouldn’t be stigmaWhen did this silly rule get made up?

Sure as hell should be stigma when you actively pursue any kind of situation that requires someone else to support you.  Even if she’s independently wealthy (doubt it, look at her home, she’s no wealthier than I) then for cryin’ out loud, think of your kids, lady.

This is even worse than the couch-eater and the furniture polisher.

I know!  Let’s tax people, buy kits to test their kids for drugs, send them to parents who are interested, and make it look like a great service we’re offering to people who ought to be tracking their kids better than they are!  What a fantastic use of tax dollars!  Yay us!

Hell, people.  If I want to know if my kid is doing drugs I’ll buy a kit myself, not waste it on bureaucracy to do my job for me.

More Chins than a Hong Kong telephone directory.  That’s my kitty Jilly-boo.

See the chins? She has lots more now. That's an old picture.

Apparently we humans in the US are getting that way, too.  Quick… everybody panicOne in five of us is pudgy, just like Jilly-boo.

Over the last two decades, people in the United States have been eating less nutritious food and more of it. At the same time, activity levels have fallen, Levi said.

“If we’re going to reverse the obesity trends, willpower alone won’t do it. We’re going to have to make healthier choices easier for Americans,” Levi said.  (Jeff Levi, executive director of the Trust for America’s Health)

Making healthier choices requires willpower, you idiot.  But we don’t need the gov’t or some control group doing it for us.

Will you be surprised if the Trust for America’s Health is outed as a George Soros funded initiative?  Well, it IS a Soros-funded initiative.  No lie.

When I hear someone say “We’re going to have to make healthier choices easier for Americans,” what I really hear is “We know what is good for you and we’ll eliminate anything we don’t like until all you can do is choose from what we choose for you.”

We do what we must, because we can…  – Aperture Science

Welcome to yet another area where your life will be controlled if you don’t watch out.  You, too, could live in a controlled area like New York City.

If I want to be obese, it’s my choice, and the gov’t can just get it’s own pudgy butt out of my choices.

More later tonight.

Fright Club

I rather enjoyed Fight Club where Tyler Durden suggests that raiding liposuction clinics for fat to later be rendered to make soap to sell back to the now-thin rich once-obese affluent clientele.

How beautiful is that, huh?

It seems that art imitates life.  I certainly hope life didn’t imitate art in this case.

Killing peasants to use their fat for European cosmetics?

Here is the staggering part:  That fat goes for a whopping price of $59,335 PER GALLON.

Cripes, hook me up! In spite of the denials, what if liposuction clinics already do this?

I know they probably don’t, but then you have to ask: Why were these animals butchering people for their fat?

This is one case where you don’t want a product named after you.

They need to arrest people for this. It is certainly the best possible use of a policeman’s time since the very act of paying someone to spit in your face is well known to be the gateway to other behaviors like drive-by-shootings, beheadings, armed rampages, rape, drug dealing, and yes, even democrat candidacy.

A 39-year-old Southern California man has been arrested for misdemeanor child annoyance after allegedly paying a teenager $31 to spit in his face. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says Charles Hersel was arrested Wednesday in a sting operation at a mall in Thousand Oaks.

How do you make a sting operation where you try to arrest weirdos who solicit kids to spit in their face?  Does this happen a lot?

Telepromptitude.

From the Lemur King Dictionary of Idiocy:

Main Entry: tele•prompt•i•tude
Pronunciation: \ˈte-lə-ˌpräm(p)–tə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd\
Function: noun
Etymology: from TelePrompTer, a trademark
Date: 2009

: The ability or lack thereof to communicate with or without a TelePrompTer (see TelePrompTer)

Apparently our O-Messiah is unable to function in society without a teleprompter and his track record with one is seriously being called into question.

Michelle must be a very patient woman.  A wedding ceremony like this must have been upsetting.

Rev. Wright or some other racist minister:  Do you, Barack Obama, take this woman…

Obama:  I… Barack Obama… … look meaningfully to Michelle … take this… woman… look to reverend…

Wright:  … to have and to hold…

Obama: … take Michelle’s hand… to have… look to the side… and to hold…

(oh the humanity – LK)

****

Obama’s TelePrompTer apparently has a lot to say that Obama is not relating.

As much as I emotionally feel otherwise, the US Gov’t has no business passing new tax laws in a punitive fashion to take away bonuses given to AIG executives.  In case you haven’t kept up:

US House passes 90-percent tax on AIG bonuses... (Drudge)

It was part of their contract.  Yes it is obscene.  But it was legal and it is effectively a debt owed by the company, AIG.

“The Democratic bill brought to the floor today is constitutionally questionable,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “It’s obviously a transparent attempt to divert attention away from the truth that Democrats in Congress and this administration made these bonus payments possible.”

The bill would levy a 90 percent tax on bonuses paid to employees with family incomes above $250,000 at companies that have received at least $5 billion in government bailout money.

“We figured that the local and state governments would take care of the other 10 percent,” said Rangel.

Rangel, you utter pig.

For congress to pass a law thinly/narrowly targeted at these specific people with the intent to take all or nearly all of that specific money, especially in a punitive fashion… this is truly not a power given to congress.   This is totalitarianism.

Typical of the liberal mindset… democracy is the best thing EVAH, at least until it doesn’t swing your way, in which case you demonstrate, dictate, or go to court.

Leading climate scientist: ‘democratic process isn’t working’

You, too, can be the best serf that you can be.  Join Barack’s new elite corps of sheeple.

Too fat to work?  Move to Britain and let the English Corps of Sheeple (ECS) take care of you, for you.  Trust us.  Soon to be coming to America.

A British family of four, who receives more than $30,000 a year in benefits because they are “too fat to work,” says they deserve more money, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

The Chawners, who live in Blackburn, England, have a combined weight of 1,160 pounds.

What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table,” Philip Chawner, 53, told the newspaper. “It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.”

Note:  I’m pretty sure putting food on the table took precedence over paying the bills.  Ahem.

OOOPS.  It’s HERE ALREADY!!!  So what if you aren’t fit enough to meet your police force’s regs on health and fitness!  The courts can keep you there anyway.  It’s not his fault if he can’t catch a bad guy.  They’ll just send him after fat and out-of-shape crooks.

Inventions that we could do without… cat wigs (huh?), inflatable dartboards (much like balloons for porcupines), and devices to let you know if you have collided with a pedestrian (the blood and body parts aren’t concrete enough indicators).

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody.

If you’re like me, you’re stuffing yourself silly on sugar cookies, eggnog, and braunschweiger.

And regretting what pounds may come when we shuffle onto our mortal scales…

Have no fear, a doctor is using or justly earned flab to offset your (and his) carbon buttprint.  Using liposuction fat as biodiesel.

I like Brad Pitt’s idea in Fight Club ever so slightly better (using liposuction fat to make soap and sell it back to rich people) but this is a fat… errr… fantastical idea.
