Just read a disturbing report by Consumer Reports about arsenic in rice and rice products. I don't eat rice or rice products since I went off of carbohydrates, but I know a lot of you do. This article is very interesting and there is a linked PDF that has the measurements of which rice is the worse, also their recommendations on how much you can safely eat.

I'm doing a neutral henna treatment on my hair because I've heard such good things about it. This stuff looks disgusting though! Most charitably like mud, but really like diarrhea. I'm not crazy about the smell either. I just hope it makes my hair feel nice!

I've lost another pound and a half! I am really pleased with this weight loss, and I like that I am never hungry and I don't feel deprived. This is the way to lose weight! (I also like that studies have shown this way of eating to work long term and to contribute to good health.)

I woke up with a migraine this morning. It's the first time since I went back to low carb that I've had one, so I suppose that's not too bad. Actually, I ate some berries over the weekend, maybe that's why. They are pretty high in carbs. I am just not built to eat carbohydrates I guess.

And a funny for you:
A funny macro of Romney

For some reason my picture isn't showing up. LJ! *shakes fist*

I've lost another pound since yesterday! I guess righteous anger really burns the calories!

I'm not going back into the _p post about the crazed thugs who attacked the American consulate, because my blood pressure just cannot take the strain from the people who are falling all over themselves to say "it's ok when muslims do it." No It's not. It's not ok when anyone does it. It's not ok to kill over media. Period. End of story. And it's almost funny because their own countrymen say it's not ok!

It's also pretty xenophobic (I'm not going to say racist because "muslim" isn't a race) to say that "those people can't help themselves" or "of course they'll riot, those people are like that!" or any of the other ethnocentric bullshit statement so-called liberals are flinging around over there.

So if anyone is here from there, I'm not even going to acknowledge that kind of crap, so I'm out.

I'm actually sitting here crying right now. I just finished my period 3 days ago and it's starting up again. I am so sick of this irregularity. No wonder I've been so moody and irrational. I just want my regular cycle back. It was a short 26 day cycle, but at least it was predictable. I don't know what I'm going to do, I am just sick of bleeding!

Is this happening to anyone else? I can't open any comments at all. I even tried typing in the URL by hand and it's not working. Why can't they leave well enough alone? They keep making it worse and worse!

I am really enjoying my Nexus 7! I highly recommend them, especially since they are so reasonably priced. I just got a period tracking app! I already use mymonthlycycles.com, but I'm giving this a spin anyway.

I got on the scales this morning and was down by another pound and a half! Yea!

I have officially lost 25 pounds now! I bought a pair of capri pants in early July because I couldn't get my fat butt into my normal ones and now I can take the new ones off without undoing the button!

It's HERE!

Our Nexus 7s arrived yesterday. I spent the afternoon figuring it out. I can see how this will be pretty useful. I'm really enjoying it, athough for reading I will stick with my Kindle for the most part. This tablet though will be great for web surfing in bed and when I'm in airports or whatnot.

I like that it's not humongous like the ones I typically see. This one is small enough that I can slip it into my normal purse without having to carry a gigantic bag. My purses do tend to be on the larger side, but not really gargantuan. I mean they are obviously purses, not briefcases.

The price was definitely right too. So anyone looking for a tablet, this one seems pretty good!

No one on my friends list has a tablet? I was hoping someone did on my last post because I have so many questions about them!

They need to kill off Juliette. That character is just so nothing! She doesn't add anything to the show at all. Bleahhhhhhhhhh.

More rain today from what's left of Isaac. It's off and on because we're not under the main part of it, just some of the outer bands. We really need the water though, so the only complaint I have is that it's not raining enough.

Looks like Isaac is going to all but miss us here. We'll get some rain from it, but not as much as they'd thought. I'm a bit bummed because we desperately need the rain! But at least we'll get some rain, and that's better than nothing.

We're far enough from the coast that hurricanes are almost always downgraded to tropical storms (or lower) before they get up this far. Sometimes they can really slam us though. Ivan caused serious flooding here a few years ago. I think that was 2004. They had to send scuba divers into some apartments to rescue people.

I haven't posted in a while, I just have been in a quiet mode where I can't think of anything to say. So, have a picture of Arizona.

I have lost so much weight now, that I can take off and put on my jeans without undoing the button and zipper!

My husband just sent me an email telling me that he has a guy in an upcoming class that he's teaching who has never turned on a computer in his life!

I lost another pound last week. I feel so much better. I was able to get into a smaller size. I really look better. I still want to lose a few more pounds, but I am happy like this too.

20 Pounds

I have passed the 20 pounds milestone! Technically it's 21 pounds since I lost 2 pounds last week, but 20 pounds was the first milestone that I set for myself. I feel like I have made a huge accomplishment these last 4 months.

This reminds me why I don't want a cat as a pet. I can't stand the way they stink up a house. They always seem to forget the litter box out of spite at some point and that smell is so hard to eradicate.

Just gonna leave this here.

Ok, here's a new one on me. I saw an idiot post "one in the same" instead of "one and the same". One in the same doesn't even make sense! What is the one supposedly inside of? AHAHAHA!

Over the weekend, The Big Aussie and I had an opportunity to go to The Home Depot to get some tools or whatever. (IDK, he handles all that stuff, I can barely stay conscious in there as it's so boring, but he's happy to to go Sephora with me so I am happy to go to HD with him.) Anyway, we're holding hands as we walk into the shop, we always walk around like that, it's no big deal to us, it's just normal. But the greeter is like FREAKING OUT. " OMG YOU ARE HOLDING HANDS! WHAT IS YOUR SECRET? HOW ARE YOU STILL ABLE TO TOLERATE EACH OTHER AT YOUR AGE?!?"

Is it that unusual for an older couple to still hold hands? I never really thought anything of it. Then again, when his sister visited last year she said "you guys act like a couple of teenagers!" when all we did was exchange a chaste kiss (no tongues, lips closed) in front of her a couple of times. It doesn't seem that weird to me that even old people like ourselves would be affectionate (tastefully, not sucking face) with each other.
