foods I don’t eat

November 30, 2012 at 8:04 pm (chronic conditions, diabetes, food)


sorry, my  fault they  won’t exsits  soon.  but I didn’t  like them as a kid.

green  olives  with pimento

Over time I’ve  grown  to  like green  olives,  but still don’t  like ’em stuffed with pimento.

artificial  sweetners.

I  don’t like  the taste of  them.   I’ve  even  learned to  drink Ice tea  without  sweetner. occassionaly  I  have a diet  soda or crystal light  lemonade, but really, I’d  rather  not.

fat free  sour  cream

It  tastes  funny – nothing  like  real  sour  cream

fat  free  half and half

I  have no idea  how  this is even possible.

light butter /light margerine /fat  free cheese.  

I had some of  these  that  don’t  melt.  Scary.

So what is  this all about?   Blood  sugars  not  good.  Neither  is  weight ( clothes aren’t  fitting well ) and  I  really  like to  eat. SoI’m  just trying to  remember  there are  very  few foods I  dion’t like.   Variety is avalible , so  eating less of some things  does not have to be painful.   Also, no matter what advice I  get  from  books or well meaning  friends- the first  rule of food  for me is Never eat anything  you  don’t  like. It only  makes me look  for  something better  tasting.

Of  course,  there are those foods  that dont like at all

Fang Girl  Helen  Keeble ( LB)  one  of  the funniest books I’ve  read in a a long  time – yes  there is a link  between vampires and ikea. review

Private  James  Patterson/maxine  Paetro – (klb) Stiff .   these  two  have done  some of the women’s  murder  club  books , but  this one was  – well the story  lines  were interesting, but I didn’t  feel anything for  the characters.   – 1st book in  a series about a private detective  agency.

Bewitching You Viola Estrella (kb) paranormal romance, cute,overly complex. I kinda wish the romantic couple had learned to trust how they felt a little more by the end of the book , but it was a fun read

6 for November and 125 for the year – which is almost done

6 for October, 119 for the year so far

The Excursion Train  Marston, Edward (klb) another  good  historical  mystery  by  this author.

Gone girl Gillian Flynn (KLB)  good, read  review  below.  Need to  find  her  other  books

The Scandal of Lady Eleanor Regina Jeffers (KLB) I thought this was going to be a light regency romance – but no, it had child molesting in it. and it ended on a cliff hanger . It was good, but not what I was expecting.

3 for November , so far…

Gone Girl – review

November 7, 2012 at 3:17 pm (Uncategorized) ()

I  don’t  swear  a  lot.  My  family  doesn’t really  swear.  As I’ve  grown  older,  it  just  seems  odd  to  use  body  parts, or  body functions  to mean something bad.  I do  like  to  use  frell ( from  Farscape) or  frak  (  from  BSG) –  they sound  like  they mean something wrong.  And I use the  phrase ‘effed up’ a  lot  too,  because  it  just  sounds  like  a  mess.   All this  information is  because  I  finished  Gone  Girl by  Gillian  Flynn  a  few  days ago.   The  book just  will not  leave  my  head.  I’m  astonished.  I don’t  read  a lot  of best sellers, they  often  don’t  appeal.   But I  read  this  one, and it  is so  messed up.   The  characters are completely  fucked up.  They  have entangled and mixed themselves  up  and created a horrific mess.

Gone  Girl  is  the  story of couple. The  fall in love, get married, things go well , then  they don’t, and she disappears.  The story is told in alternating flashbacks and alternating chapters. First  Nick  ,then  Amy.   The voices of  each  character is  crystal  clear.   You know  who  they are. You know  when  they  lie.  I  didn’t  like  anybody.

About halfway through the book, it feels like something is missing – and boom, there it is.  The timing/pace of  the book is spot on.

I  would like  this book just  for  the slap at the overdone dramatic news coverages of tragedies   But then there was the ending.   I hated it, but it was absolutely perfect.
