Now I need a colonoscopy. Not fun.
Here's my entry for the BabySealLOL contest:

Baby seal walks into a bar. Bartender says, "What'll you have?" Baby seal says, "Anything but Canadian Club."
Ha ha.
Today's fasting BG: 5.1/91. Wednesday's after dinner: 27.5/495. No wonder my A1C was 12.2 percent (but my BP, triglycerides, total cholesterol are perfect). I am seeing a registered dietician at the end of the month. I hope she can wave her magic wand and keep me from eating a box of cookies for dinner---or a snack.
Found a Homer Laughlin Fiesta devilled egg plate for my mom's birthday present at -- this site has excellent service! But they ship UPS, which can be problematic, since I WORK when they try to DELIVER!

Earth whatever (hour, day, week, month...)

I have done a couple of carbon footprint tests, and since I live in a 6-room house by myself I seem to use up more than my fair share. But the "test" sites don't ask how many of my faucets or showerheads or toilets are low-flow or high-efficiency, or how many of my lightbulbs are compact fluorscents. Also, 90 percent of my green-bin shit is, well, shit---cat shit, you know? It's an organic source, too (PC aGreen) I can't put that stuff in my current compost system (only green stuff). So what can I do? I don't fly (don't even have a passport yet).

Hey, here's a hint: don't flush your floss. It sticks in the filters and needs a lot of remediation. Put it in the garbage.
