My Dinner With Leatherface


Thanks to Ben and his Fart Machine, I don’t think we can ever go back to that restaurant.

This is an open thread.

    After dinner I came home and watched the SF Giants win behind the pitching of a new rookie.

    About the murdering cop from last thread, the more I think about the known facts, the more bizarre it is.
    Cop stops guy for broken taillight.
    Guy gives id to cop.
    Guy runs from cop.
    Cop shoots guy in back eight times.

    If this were a fictional mystery plot, I’d guess that there was a personal connection between the two, which they do not realize until the id is presented.
    Today I hear that both the cop & the victim were former Coast Guard.

    I’m calling it now, either they knew each other or they both knew a 3rd person and there some bad blood history thing going on here.

      Looks like the party will be some time early next weekend! I have to pull out my dancing shoes. Oh, and for whoever is in charge of the food, I’m not a vegetarian/vegan, love my bacon, no lactose or gluten intolerance, love cheese and crackers, no allergies to shellfish, love shrimp, no sodium problems, so get the salt that I can use for the rim of my margarita glass. Hmmmm, let’s see, did I miss anything?

      Ok, I must confess, I’ve been entertaining a lot lately, and the food situation makes it intolerable. I think every one of my friends/family has some kind of food issue. It’s just no fun anymore. My brain is drained.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The planning is underway, so far no caterers have refused service 😉

      • elliesmom says:

        I so agree that’s it’s not fun to invite people over for food anymore. I stopped inviting my BFF and her husband to dinner when she added gluten-free to her already dairy-free diet. Neither diet is prescribed for her by a medical professional. We go out to eat now instead. The waitress can deal with her. My daughter-in-law went paleo and dragged my son with her. We go to their house instead now, especially since she talked her mother into the diet and cross-fit training. My son sneaks over here for a grilled ham and cheese on rye every once in awhile. I love cooking for the 3 year old grandchild. She eats everything and loves to try new stuff. I figure in a couple of years she’ll be the only one I get any pleasure out of feeding. By the time she develops quirks, I’ll probably be done cooking.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Oh I hear ya ! I have a friend on a “medically supervised weight loss liquid diet” whether it’s a neighborhood pot luck or a restaurant, she drags her jug and watches us eat as she slurps down her magic liquid. Sad part, she’s been on it since last summer and I don’t see any difference.

          Then, a bunch of us went to a mystery dinner theater one night and one of the guys brought about 4 boxes of Weight Watchers meals for the waitress to nuke for him. Guess he couldn’t eat beforehand?

          Yes, there are special snowflakes of all ages!

        • Lulu says:

          A friend told me of a anniversary party recently her sister in law attended. It was a serve yourself buffet type thing. There were little printed signs and each dish specifying stuff in it. On a sliced ham they had “Fat Duh.”, “dairy and fat butter”, “sugar and nuts” on desserts, etc. At the end of the line was a sign that said “If you don’t have anything on your plate you are a hypochondriac so starve”.

          • Lulu says:

            Me = mine. Excuse me. I am having a pump-head day.

          • elliesmom says:

            I wish my BFF had been invited. lol

          • Lulu says:

            The thing is there are lots of dietary restrictions and people who have digestive problems who simple avoid certain foods and don’t make a peep. This is about look at me I’m special and I’m better than you because I don’t eat whatever. People who feel they aren’t in control of themselves want to control everything and everyone. I got in trouble once with an ex-sister in law who had some kind of a mental break in a restaurant over something on her plate. I told her scrape it to the side. She said she was going to vomit. I took her plate and scraped it off on mine. Then I said “Here you big baby, you have gotten your attention eat your lunch.” I was in trouble for being mean. But my brother paid her off not long after and got rid of her.

          • elliesmom says:

            I think you’re right on the money with the attention seeking behavior thing. The BFF loves making the waitress run back and forth to the kitchen to see if foods have dairy in them. We were out to lunch the other day, and the BFF made a big deal out of telling the waitress she has “dairy allergies”. Then she wanted to know if one of the dishes had cream in it. The waitress said it did. The BFF asked to her to go ask in the kitchen to be sure. The waitress said she was sure. She watched the chef pour a pitcher of cream into it every day. Then BFF said she’d try it anyway. The waitress said she couldn’t serve it to her because she had disclosed she had a dairy allergy. She then suggested the blandest thing on the menu to the BFF. It was my treat that day. I tipped her big. lol

          • 49erDweet says:

            THAT’s a waitress! LOL

          • DeniseVB says:

            em ~ I have a bff that makes going to McDonalds a pain. I’m sure every sandwich she’s ordered has been spit on. I’m sure when they make their $15/hr, that practice will stop /snork.

      • Constance says:

        I know what you mean about weird diet guests. Anymore I just announce the menu “or bring your own lunch”.

  6. SHV says:

    “I so agree that’s it’s not fun to invite people over for food anymore.”
    About half a dozen of my wife’s running friends have gone off the deep end with really crazy “commercial/scam” diets. These are healthy women in late 20’s/30’s who have bought into pseudo-scientific BS about most foods causing some sort of metabolic dysfunction. The companies/people that dream this stuff up know what buttons to push to get mostly women to buy into this nonsense.

    • mcnorman says:

      It’s so bad now, that the pet food industry has joined the reindeer games doing the same thing. 😦

      • 49erDweet says:

        Yes they have. And it was foreseeable. Condo dwellers with furry pets is counterintuitive. But booming. Of course the pets would have similar “dietary needs”.
        Just reordered dog food. Had to choose from 264 options. For dogs. {{facepalm}}

        • lyn says:

          I have three cats who have food allergies. Their food choices are limited, and I’m transitioning one to a raw diet. I spend more a month on cat food than people food. That’s OK. A purring cat trumps almost everything in my quiet world.

        • Constance says:

          I can remember feeding the dog nothing but scraps from the table. Sure he was kind of fat but he was happy and lived 15 years.

    • elliesmom says:

      When my daughter-in-law went all evangelical on the paleo crap, I asked my doctor what she thought of the diet. She said you can lose weight on any diet that makes you take in fewer calories than you use. Her favorite one for herself is the “snickers” diet. She can drop enough pounds in a week to look good in this one dress she has that’s normally kind of tight. But long term any diet that doesn’t provide you with a full range of nutrients isn’t healthy even if you drop 50 pounds. A diet that eliminates any group of foods because their calories are “bad” is no better for you than eating Snickers bars for a few days. And exercise should make you feel better, not make you hurt. I’m sorry she decided to take a sabbatical from “doctoring”. Doesn’t need the money and doesn’t need the ObamaCare crap.

      • Lulu says:

        Evangelicals like to control their folks. It is a type of power and a way to jerk their chain. Food, clothes, child rearing, tv, etc and it is very similar to the eco nuts and Vile Progs. I don’t know how a paleo diet is serving god but there you go. What do poor people who can’t afford it do? Or someone who is sick and can’t eat that shit? Just go to hell? None of the behavior Nazi’s think this stuff out.

    • cynic says:

      I have a sister (vegetarian) and BIL & his wife who are obsessed with their sodium intake. My sister wasn’t married, so ate things like peanut butter and bananas, yogurt, or unsalted popcorn for supper. She was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.

      My hubby’s brother and wife stay overnight with us, and they are sooooo obsessed about their food intake. For breakfast every day, it’s unsweetened shredded wheat. Lunch is yogurt, and supper is fish and veggies. He takes his blood pressure 3x per day, yet doesn’t have high blood pressure.

      Read up on lack of iodine in a diet. Hypothyroidism is a side effect. Anxiety is another.
      We tend to use fancy salts on our foods. Time to go back to the Morton Iodized salt.

      Wasn’t there a ‘salt not as bad as previously thought’ article last week. It’s probably next to the ‘eggs aren’t as bad for you as was previously thought.’

      Yea, and my girlfriend is on the paleo diet. That is, if she isn’t juicing everything.

      • elliesmom says:

        I do have high blood pressure, and it took several months to find the right meds to bring it down. During one of the trials my feet swelled up over the tops of my shoes. My GP told me to eliminate salt from my diet. The hypertension specialist she finally sent me to, the one who goes on the Snickers diet once in awhile, changed the meds, brought, my blood pressure under control, and eliminated the swelling. Salt never came up in any of our discussions. .

      • votermom says:

        My hubby has thyroid problems, my older kid too.
        Aside from making sure he eats iodized salt, he also needs to avoid excess amounts of so-called healthy food like broccoli, kale, spinach cabbage, peanuts, strawberries, canola… It’s a long list.
        Cooking and discarding the juice helps remove the goitrogens.
        (So like putting cooked and squeezed out spinach in quiche is ok)
        Juicing any of the goitrogenic foods is very a bad idea for people with thyroid issues.

      The Progs favorite Attorney General was being paid $2 million a year to use his DOJ connections to get Chiquita Brands aka United Fruit Company off the hook from mass murder charges in Colombia. They supplies money, automatic weapons to local militias to solve a labor problem; allegedly at least 3500 people were killed. Holder was successful, the company was fined and the records sealed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Let’s see, Obama sued banks for racism unless they gave mortgages to minorities who couldn’t afford to BUY a house. Ooops. How did that work out for the economy?

    • cynic says:

      Won’t be shocked it he’s pardoned as Obama is leaving office. Did a little digging using Van Jones/ Mumia in my search, and came up with this:

      Prison Medical System Is Killing Mumia Abu-Jamal
      The President and Holder must act immediately to stop the medical murder of a demonstrably innocent man.
      Yet now, the state’s (and the nation’s) best known prisoner, broadcast journalist and author Mumia Abu-Jamal, faces the imminent possibility of execution by medical neglect, tantamount to medical murder. I sent the e-mail below to Mr. Wetzel, the Secretary of the Dept. of Corrections. I urge you to intervene in this matter immediately. There is incontrovertible proof that Mr. Abu-Jamal, is innocent, a victim of the biases of the judicial system and a vendetta by the notorious Philadelphia police department and the Fraternal Order of Police.
      Act now! Sincerely, Bob Mandel Adult Education ESL Teacher Alameda, CA

    Did they make poo poo all by themselves?

    • DeniseVB says:

      What a bizzarro tweet from *verified* NBC ? Is that the Eisenhower Exec Bldg next door to the WH ? I mean, makes no sense for a “sharing the potty” story. I’ve been doing that forever at stadium sports/concerts. There’s always stalls in the men’s room, and the guys are too high or drunk to notice a grandma slipped past them. (Really, have you seen the LINES to the girls rooms?) Make them all gender neutral!!!!!!!

      • SHV says:

        Years ago I was at the Final Four at the old King Dome in Seattle. Women’s restrooms were packed and women were sitting on urinals in the men’s room. Didn’t seem to be a problem.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I was at a sports bar last spring in DC watching the Kentucky Derby and slamming mint juleps, well, just because Kentucky Derby 😉 They were more diuretic than buzzy, but buzzy enough to let the girls potty line know (fist pump, Girl Power!) as I dove into the empty boys bathroom. When I first heard about “transgendered” bathrooms in public schools, I thought they skipped a step. 😉

      • SHV says:

        It must get very confusing for the special snowflake social justice police. A year ago, my wife and I went to a camping/running event on a Maine island. As soon as we got there, a small group of “take charge” women gender assigned the porta-potties and made it very clear that they didn’t want any men in the women’s stalls. This year, I guess that they would be burned at the stake for un-correct political thought. It’s all very confusing.

        • Constance says:

          The thing is most men seem happy if they hit anything in the bathroom and I don’t want to go in a coed bathroom because there are piss drips on the toilet seat, floor and the back of the toilet lid. No. I need women only bathrooms and by that I mean no people with Y chromosomes allowed.

      Do you actually own a dog?

      • 49erDweet says:

        LOL! We “guardian” two young, beautiful Labradoodle almost-ready-to-be mothers for a local breeder. One of them, after she’s retired, will be ours. So we don’t “own” them but they think of me as the Alpha, and we get to spoil them, too.

    There are already anti-Rand Paul attack ads on tv (saw them on Fox news channel).

      I’m reading GWB’s *41* a great tribute to Dad, better yet, a great, great peek inside running for the Presidency. It’s like a lottery, only we, the unwashed, really don’t get to play 😀

      The next 19 months are going to be like….

      • cynic says:

        Took the kids on a vacation to Kings Island, only to find out that they didn’t like roller coasters! Fortunately, about a couple of hours before we were ready to leave, they got enough courage to ride one, and then there was no stopping them.

    • Constance says:

      Huh! He must scare the hell out of someone with money. I wonder if its Democrats or rich Republicans?

  12. SHV says:

    “and I’m transitioning one to a raw diet. I spend more a month on cat food than people food. ”
    Make your own cat food is probably most cost effective way for healthy food. Just have to be sure to add appropriate supplements, such as Taurine. Quality food in the end is a lot cheaper than vet bills.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Yeah, I watched it a couple of times and tried to enhance the audio, but not much luck. Sounded and looked routine. AAMOF when Scott broke and ran surprised there wasn’t more of a commotion from the cop. Doesn’t support VM’s guess, but it boggles my ex-cop mind, too.

      We have family that lives there. They’re ok, We’re about 60 miles from them, but we had tornado warnings as well. Spent about an hour in the basement.

      She posted a video of the high school football field bleachers, and the tornado is just behind them. Thankfully, no damage to the school or field.

    You’re all a bunch of anti-blackness something, something. I forget, but I’m sure you’re all bad. New one on me: NBPoC who “reproduce” white supremacist oppression. I hope you feel adequately guilty. Yeah, some crazy for you:

    I used to use the term “micro-aggression” to describe my daily battles with Whites and non-Black people of color (NBPoC) who reproduce White Supremacist oppression. But, I have grown and matured. My race-related lexicon has expanded. I have more flowery words to describe this limited term now. Truth is though: microaggressions aren’t micro at all. They are a part of a macro-level system of White supremacy and White privilege which systematically isolates and excludes Black folks from equal access to justice, representation in politics, respect in the public sphere and from institutions, and opportunity for social mobility.

      I looked at this article. I did not read it. When I went to the site, I saw a photo of a person with duct tape across her mouth. Someone ought to have used more and taped her hands to her ankles.
