Good news! He came in today, so I will be picking him up tomorrow when I have some cash on me. The dude at our GS came through as promised!

Very cool.

Watch out for the loops on Donnie's back. They come undone very easily. I'll personally never put his Bo there, and just always have him holding it.

Otherwise they're all fantastic.

Got them yesterday -- cute! And pretty nice quality for as cheap as they were, too. Based on the measurements they offered to try to determine the size, given the size differences between here and there, I got the XL and they're perfect. Normally I'd wear a small. Just how tiny are the women in China (where they came from) who can wear the small... Dang. But if anyone needs smaller than our local size small, there ya go.

An old client of mine came back to the gym this week after a couple years' break. He was originally set up with another trainer, but he insisted that he get scheduled with me again, so that's cool. I didn't even have to do anything. So that's pretty cool, it's almost like "free money".

Days when I can Just Work and not have to deal with the boss are generally pretty good.

What made me happy today- a 22$ tip from a customer! Had a guy in my drive theough hand me some folded up cadh when I gave him his food, saying it was for always being friendly and "happy". I thanked him and put it in my pocket, thinking it was just a couple of bucks. Later when I went to put it in my wallet, I unfolded them to discover a 20$ inside the ones! Wow. So I used it to help pay for the insulin Mr D asked me to puck up after work. Nice little windfall to help out with the meds.

Happy makers.... Awesome weather, 75 out, 10 warmer than predicted (though dropping back to 40s for the next several days ) and loving being able to finally open the windows; my couple of grocery store Monopoly freebies actually still in stock (got that free bottle of Aspirin that was out of stock last year), and the lady ahead of me at checkout isn't playing so the cashier suggested me being able to have her game pieces, so I got an additional little handful on top of mine (including a couple more freebies).

Beats me how anyone doesn't want them. I mean, even if you don't bother with the game board and prizes you probably won't win, heck there's still free store items and coupons from the game pieces!

Not so much made me happy as made me laugh, today. Had a customer come through my drive through and I was cashing it out (did not take the order) and when I read it back she said it was wrong, as it was a sausage and cheese, but she had ordered egg and cheese. No problem, I fixed it. But what made it funny was when she said she didn't want any meat because she was vegetarian. Yet she was fine with eating an egg....

Now, I know that vegetarians will still eat dairy and such, but eggs are still protein, and are in fact, technically "meat", since they are literally chicken embryos! In batches chickens, in other words. Milk I can understand, since you don't have to kill the cow for it, same with cheese, crram, etc. But eggs do in fact count as "animals", at least in terms of biological potential. So.... yeah. Vegetarians will eat the bird before it hatches, but not after?? ROFL!!

A lot of the gym clientele are from India, so I work with vegetarians and vegans on the daily. I've also taken some nutritional seminars as part of my job, so while I'm not a certified nutritionist, I know more than the average bear.

Suffice to say, there's VERY little "logic" in what those people think and do. Especially with regards to it being a "healthy" lifestyle. Y'know how many 250+-lb vegetarians I deal with? Hundreds per year.

Some of it's cultural, but some of it is just plain ignorant.

This was definitely not cultural. It was a white chick, looked like your average yuppie 20-something health nut.

vegetarian is just not consuming the animal's actual meat or killing the animal for the food. That's why milk and eggs are fine, and honey is fine too.

What's really funny is people that claim they're vegan and then eat rabbit or something under assumption it's not a "real" animal. Like, wtf...

Rabbit? I know, and hate, that people too often like to believe/pretend that fish are not a "real" animals, but rabbits? Very weird to decided that an animal is not an animal... I mean, come on, even bugs are part of the animal kingdom.

I don't mind people that are pescetarian or pollotarian. Both are valid ways of avioding red meat for whatever reason you chose to be a pescetarian or pollotarian. A friend of mine is a pescetarian as she don't want to give money to the meat industry and now it's just a habit of hers.

But yeah, if you claim to be a vegan and eat an animal cause they're "not real" or "don't have a soul", you are veganing wrong, but probably need the protein from their cheater meat, cause if you can't follow the one rule of veganism, then I doubt they actually eat properly and just have a bowl of iceberg lettuce everyday and think that's enough substance

What I don't get is why eggs are even ok for them, if they don't want to kill an "anumal". I mean, granted the eggs we eat usually aren't fertilized, unless they are free-range raised, but it's STILL the unmatched embryo of a chicken! I guess these are the same folks who don't think fish are real animals....

It's mostly because of the way chickens are usually raised that makes eggs get called into question. Same with all the hullabaloo about calves being separated from cows at birth...but I've looked through enough dairy farmer blogs on tumblr to know that it's definitely for the better. Apparently dairy cows are awful at being moms, but that's probably because of their breeding (beef cows are the better parents).


Finally, there are plenty of vegans that will say honey is fine because it's beneficial for bees to collect their excess, especially now that we have humane ways to collect honey (it used to be that you did have to kill the whole hive, until it was realized that smoke calms them down enough to collect what's needed and leave them alone). That, on top of agave nectar collections being absolutely awful of the environment. So honey is the one caveat.


Looking around though, it's pretty clear that most of the vegans I've seen are City Kids™ who have never set foot on a farm and only get their information from questionable sources. And I say that as a kid from the suburbs who's only been on a beef farm two or three times to visit (though, I live in Texas...free range cows EVERYWHERE. Even in town! Not usually more than ten, but still. Duckie, are you in an area of Texas to see that? There's a place not to far from where I live that has longhorns! LONGHORNS.)

Oh, yes, as a matter of fact I am! Cattle country as faaar as the eye can see, here. Wise County is pretty much smack dab in the middle of it. So is Denton County (yes, the SAME Denton County that "Sherrif Buford T Justice" hailed from), where I grew up. Cows are probably one of the biggest sources of income for a lot of folks around these parts. Anywhere outside DFW, really.

I was lucky enough to have grandparents who lived in the country, who leased their land to a cattle-ranching neighbor for grazing land. So, plenty of encounters and interactions with cattle, deer, turkeys, etc. Basically spent my summers roaming anywhere I wanted writhin about 150 acres or more of cattle country. By myself, even.

It's mostly an area I've had to drive south through to get to Waco or beyond. Or anywhere in Ohio outside of Columbus.

And yet for some reason, it's always exciting to see them?
