I still miss you. <3  *sniff*

I told M he has to do a choreographed dance with  me at some point in our relationship. I think he finally realizes I am dead serious. This is one of the options and I hope he picks it! weeee!


I've heard about the health benefits of curcumin (main component in turmeric) for quite awhile now. It's anti inflammatory properties have been studied and proven. It helps prevent and treat cancer as well. Here are a few interesting links about this interesting spice. I'm going to start currying all the rice I eat and see if I notice any kind of change in my health.

Indians have much lower incidence of Alzheimers (1-2%) than Westerners (17%) Could be diet related in that most Indians eat rice, beans and butter as their main food sources and consume very little meat.

RA and curcumin

Stop. Curry time!

Health Tips?

If it has a vegetable on it that isn't a potato, it's healthy.

If you only use half of the Ramen noodle packet, it's healthy.

If it's brown when it could be white, it's healthy.

If you chose to skip the cheese, it's healthy.

If you have to put butter on a vegetable to eat it, that's still healthy.

If a glass of wine is good for you an entire bottle is REALLY good for you.

Actual Tips:

 If it says "Diet" on it it is probably not actually good for you or for your diet.

Shop in the outer aisles of the store. The inner aisles are where the junk and processed garbage is. (one exception is the asian food aisle which I frequent) Stick with bright veggies and low fat meats.  Brown rice is your best option for a side dish. It's simple to make, tastes better, has more nutrients and costs less than white rice. Red meat should only be eaten very rarely as a treat. Meat does not need to be consumed every day, I try to do a day between each chicken breast.

Salt is not the enemy. Iodized salt is. Choose kosher sea salt. I use the coarse salt for cooking and the fine ground ones for sprinkling. If you are eating lots of packaged stuff then yes watch your sodium but if you are only salting veggies then seriously? Don't fucking sweat it.

Can't just drink water? Try fruit juices mixed with water. If I drink apple juice it will be a 50/50 mix with water. You can try 25/75 at first until your palate changes and the 50/50 mix tastes good.

MOVIE REVIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!@!!!!!!!!!

I watch movies. I have opinions about those movies. Now, you will know my opinions. This is MOVIE REVIEWS!!!!!!!!!@!!!!!

Moneyball   Brad Pitt is still pretty sexy but this movie is about BASEBALL and while the movie is interesting, the fact that I was watching a lengthy movie about BASEBALL was hard to get over. Jonah Hill (fat kid from Superbad) is a main character and it just throws me off to have someone who came from potty humour fame all of a sudden be acting all serious n shit. I kept waiting for him to be funny and it never happened. I started watching this movie under the very false assumption it was a comedy. It's not. I did LOL a few times but it's far from a comedy. It's about BASEBALL. This movie will probably be nominated for a bunch of Oscars but it really shouldn't be. Mat liked it a lot better than I did but I think that's because deep down maybe he secretly likes sports?  I give this film 4.6 out of 9 Christmas tree ornaments. Maybe watch it?

Rise of the Planet of the Apes   It had James Franco,  gorillas throwing themselves at helicopters, monkeys riding horses, monkeys wearing people clothes and did I mention the gorilla taking down the helicopter? Yeah. That REALLY happened. And it's just as awesome as it sounds. This is a fucking badass movie and it is one of the few films that have entertained me all the way through in the last while. I wasn't expecting much and I got WOWED TO THE FACE by it. I rate this film 98 out of 101 Kitties. Watch it!!

Incendies   A touching and disturbing look at a womans life in the Middle East during one of the many conflicts. One word for this movie would be masterpiece. It is enthralling, upsetting and touching all at the same time. One of the best movies I have ever seen. Gems like Incendies will never get an Oscar nod while mediocre shit like Moneyball will. This is why I do not give a shit about the Academy Awards. 9 out of 9.5 Stars Absolutely watch it!

Bloody Pit of Horrors (1968)  I have a feeling that the fact that the movie was dubbed in English added to the charm. Seeing the actors lips moving quite obviously out of sync with the words added to the zany cheese of the movie. It was hilariously funny in parts and a bit boring in others but that is what the fast forward button is for, my friends! I give this movie 5 out of 7.5 Puppies in a Basket. Watch it if you like cheesy horror movies. 

The Wicker Man (1973)  Nicolas Cage did an apparently terrible remake of this movie and I didn't want to bother with that one so went for the original. It's spooky and misleading and while I definitely won't be rewatching it, it was worth the time spent. A straight edged cop is sent to an island where a girls disappearance has been reported. When he asks around for her her existence is denied by all the townfolk. SUSPENSE INSUES!  5 out of 9 Pop Cans      It's pretty decent!

Your Highness  You don't need to know anything about this movie besides that it is set in faraway times in a faraway land and it is basically a stoner comedy for the gods.  I can't understand why anyone would give this movie a bad review (and some people did), it was laugh out loud funny the entire time.  Probably one of my new favouritest comedies, this one deserves a watch. I love Natalie Portman and I think I really like James Franco and guess what they were BOTH IN THIS MOVIE! And the other dude who is in EASTBOUND AND DOWN is fucking hilarious. I don't know his name and fuck googling it but he is the bomb. This movie gets A MILLION OUT OF A MILLION AND ONE AWESOMES. WATCH IT OR DIE!!!!!!!!

A Lesson In Dogs

Dog farts... I can't think of a worse smell than dog farts. Whatever you feed your dog will come out smelling 5780% worse than when it went in. There is some kind of dog digestion magic that turns plain food like bread and chicken into SUPER FARTS that make you want to hurl or plug your nostrils with cement. It will smell like your dog ate a rotting corpse made out of vomit when all you fed him was some bread crust and dog food. Your dog will sit as close to you as possible while letting loose these hell smells and his butt WILL be in your direction. When you try to tell him to move away from you (while choking desperately for air)  he will look at you confused and hurt, and will act like you just beat him over the head with his favourite toy. He will then come closer to you, probably farting nervously all the while. With your head buried in a blanket, taking deep breaths, trying not to faint, he will come even closer to try to snuggle with you and see what's wrong. There is no escaping dog farts. There is no escape.

Neighbours stupid definitely retarded dog that barks non stop....
This dog, it is named Lucy, but I'm pretty sure that is short for LUCIFER. She will bark at a car coming down the drive. She will bark at nothing coming down the drive. She will bark at something in the field. She will bark at nothing in the field. Her bark is loud and proud. She may be half senile but she sure has a set of lungs on her! She will bark at you walking to your car. She will bark at you if she sees you through the window.  If you offer her a kind pet, she will sniff your hand and then when all seems well and you are thinking "Oh maybe I will pet her, maybe we can be FRIENDS!" she will snap at you and bark so furiously and menancingly that you will ask yourself what the fuck you are doing trying to make friends with this asshole of a dog. She does not want to be your friend. She wants to bark at you and hate you and that is the reality of the situation. You just love animals too much to accept it. You are a noble and caring person but this dog, this dog is the closest thing to an enemy you will ever have.

She will bark for 2+ hours straight when her owners leave. She will run around the back of the house to your living room and bark at the porch door (again, this dog hates you and it knows you're in there). Nothing can get it to shut up and the neighbours don't seem to care that it barks for hours straight and won't bother locking it in the barn.

This dog will walk around with your husband, quiet as a mouse, enjoying his company but when he goes to get something in the car she will all of a sudden start viciously barking at him and not relent until he just goes back in the house, defeated. She is retarded. There is no rhyme or reason to her retardation. She just is. And you have to accept it. Because you like the house you're in and are sick and tired of moving. The price you pay for comfort and laziness just might be your sanity but hey, sanity is overrated anyways right?

Another rule about dog farts.... you will always be the first one to smell it no matter what. Your husband will never smell it first and give you warning. You will always be the dog fart warner.
