Weight watchers diet card

Weight watchers diet card

“Ever wonder what that movie Carrie would have been like if it had been cast with chickens instead of people and also possibly entirely reconceived as a porno?”

Ahh… the weight watchers diet cards circa 1974, via candyboots. It’s an old internet standby for me. These diet cards provide immense inspiration to not eat food that tastes like Mackerelly, Caucasian Shashlik or the Liver Pate en Masque. (*shudder*)

Most of you are probably sleeping off the effects of your dinner. Ever have THAT conversation over a turkey dinner? My sister and I always laugh about that: how there is always that guy who pipes up sometime during the dinner “You know, there’s a reason why we feel so sleepy after eating turkey, it’sh because of the tryp-to-phan…” and everyone else contributes their own turkey trivia to further the conversation. You know you did.

My favorite story comes from Eddie, who told me how his father (who HATES hunting) went turkey hunting with his in-laws (who LOVE hunting). His dad finally gets up the nerve to shoot a turkey and the turkey takes off running… jacked up on adrenaline, he chases after the turkey and is flabbergasted that the thing just won’t die! So feeling bad for the bird (and under pressure to impress his father in-law), he wrestles it to the ground and breaks its neck to put it out of its misery. Later, when he’s plucking the bird he finds no bullet wound.

Finally, the Canadian Election is TOMORROW! Only someone as smarmy as Stephen Harper would call for an election the day after Thanksgiving. Let’s get rid of him, okay? Okay. We need change, too. Here is an interesting election link, which shows you which parties are stronger in your riding and here is a link detailing the different arts-culture platforms of each party.
