Mr. G is THRILLED that I gave him a "Get Out Of Valentine's Day Free" card this year because I told him I'm still basking in the glow of the diamond ring he gave me for Christmas. He said, "What are the chances you'll still be basking in that glow come May when your birthday rolls around?"LOL! He's already sweating that one.I said, "Don't worry, Honey, you're good for my birthday AND our anniversary, too. You don't have to worry about gifts till Christmas '08."
Every now and then on Sundays I see a little of "Girls Next Door," after The Soup runs. "Girls" is the 'reality' show featuring Hugh Hefner and his "girlfriends." I'm sorry, but it is just downright creepy watching them together. It's like sexing up your grandpa. The truth is that God was very good to women, despite the fact that
they bitch and moan about getting a period. With a little Astroglide and lots of moaning, we can fake up enjoying sex with ANYONE. Yes, even Grandpa Hef. *shudders* The one segment I saw the chick was flashing her boobs and Hef was eating his breakfast grapefruit, blissfully unaware, which I'm guessing is how he spends most of his day.
I was reading a news story that said kids are using a secret ring tone to text during school. Apparently the tone is higher than adults can hear, as our hearing levels decline as we age. If kids have the hearing range of a canine, why can't I get a response to my questions when they're sitting two feet away?
The medical community never ceases to amaze me. There was an article on a "surgery that could cure diabetes" in some people. They were talking about the lapband surgery, which is like gastric bypass, but using the
band around the stomach. I was wondering what it was that made that specific surgery aid those with diabetes, so I read on. The article said that it could "cure diabetes" in some people because after they had the surgery, they lost weight and the weight loss brought the insulin levels down, etc.
Now INSTEAD of telling people to exercise more and lose weight, that the combo could possibly "cure diabetes" in some people, they're encouraging them to have surgery. That is so typical of the medical community. What they're NOT saying is that if you continue to make junky food choices after the surgery you still run the risk of getting diabetes.
