Stupor Bowl 2013

Monday, February 04, 2013

While TV analysts are busy psychoanalyzing the Supor Bowl and the impact of the power failure causing lights to go out, I thought I'd comment favorably on the things I did NOT eat...

I did not have any soda pop.
I did not have any hot dogs.
I did not have white hot dog buns.
I did not have a second bowl of chili.
I did mkt have a second bowl of "Pimped up Mac n Cheese" (my own creation and I can't tell you exactly what I did, other than add five or six other types of cheeses to two boxes of Kraft Mac n Cheese...).
I didn't have that piece of cherry cobbler (it's in a to-go bowl for "maņana".)

I did not take bowls of chips & dip (crisps for those outside of USA?) into the other room to munch on while waiting patiently for the commercials.

Why?

Becsuse I didn't want to get my fingers greasy and that would make my pen and paper greasy.

I was noting the commercials to indicate which were open csptioned, which were closed captioned, which were not captioned, and which were "equal access" (kind of a fine line...).

Okay we are home now. I gotta text my mom and let her know we are home now.

    Not during the Super Bowl, but during a Pats' regular season game, I got the munchies. I ate 4 pounds of fruit. Expensive, but within calories (actually, points in those days) allowance. emoticon

    Congratulations, Julia! That sounds awesome! I didn't drink soda either. I did overindulge however.

What is the difference between things that are open captioned and closed captioned?
I never realized there were two types before.

    Stupor Bowl! BWAHAHAHAHA That's what I called it as well! I am not such a huge fan of football anyway, but I do love the commercials. Not so enthralled by the 1/2 time show (someone tweeted that maybe next year they should have the Muppets on Ice for entertainment! LOL )

Good for you that you were successful while still being able to socialize and enjoy. I just kept sparking while watching the game, and drank my sparky water. Did have a veggie and fruit platter mixed in amongst the "junk" everyone else wanted. But, surprisingly, I felt no temptation to eat what I shouldn't for me. Yeah!

HUGS and good Monday to you, sweetie.

    I didn't watch the super bowl this year, so I was lucky to not have any temptations. I made a buffalo chicken casserole, though, so I wouldn't miss out on the flavors of the game!

40% off - "Gold Box Deal of the Day: Up to 40% Off 90-Day Workout Essentials"

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I don't know if everyone who gets on Amazon.com gets to see the same Gold Box Deals, or if each Gold Box Deal is unique to the person who is looking at this page - but today I get this notice "Gold Box Deal of the Day: Up to 40% Off 90-Day Workout Essentials"

www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=x
s_gb_AZ5W5QW60LY7R?ie=UTF8&docId=10009

KIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0J6HNTSY15HRNVPDYNB6


anyway it's today only 1-31-2013 "while supplies last" and I'm casually assuming that's CST so midnight tonight in Kansas. But your time zone might have a better deal. Or not.

I just thought I'd throw this notice out there, in case someone wants to pimp up their home gym but needs an extra yank on their wallet with this big 40% off crowbar....

Schizophrenia

Monday, January 28, 2013

I'm not up for the backstory and drama.

Gonna be in crash course mode learning about Schizophrenia.

Drove 400+ miles yesterday from Abilene, TX back to Kansas.

(cue up Dorothy: "There's no place like home..." (3x) yada yada...)

I'm soooo tired.

    Two easy reads that might help immensely are Diagnosis: Schizophrenia and Getting Your Life Back Together When You Have Schizophrenia. While they are both written as a introductory guide to patients, I feel both are invaluable as quick and dirty guides to the condition for people that might be related or just have questions as well

    Oy - good luck! Adult on-set is different than childhood, so make sure the info you read specifies which one they're talking about.

Pretty sure I won't be able to do well. Especially not now , after stressful day in Texas trying to deal with my dad's stuff. Plus I learned today that Medical staff are labeling him with a mental health issue... So don't know if this officially makes me crazy??
