Why is it so hard to find good (emphasis on good) information on the ‘net unless you already sort of know the answer? Case in point: I just had a physical and my bloodwork says my cholesterol is okay but my triglycerides are a little high. For every page containing useful and (probably) true information about diet and lifestyle changes to help lower triglycerides, there are a dozen trying to sell me their special fish oil with Omega 3s that are better than that other guy’s Omega 3s, and a dozen more with old wives’ tales or non-information. I really don’t know that much about nutrition, but I do know when someone is trying to sell me fish oil! This is going to be bad, by the way. I live for carbohydrates, especially white rice (I am Japanese so I will say it is genetic), and I am supposed to be cutting back on those.
As for today’s events of the generally regarded as noteworthy variety, I really don’t have that much to say about either one.
I’m running out of feminine hygiene jokes about Apple’s iPad (I had completely forgotten about that ahead-of-its-time MadTV sendup; link may or may not work by the time you click it). Like most Apple products, it’s eye-catching and has that cool gadget cachet. Like most Apple products, it’s also somewhat overpriced. And unfortunately, like one other Apple product, you’re stuck with AT&T if you want 3G service. Still a deal breaker in my world. Also, the manic rah-rah Apple fanboys/fangirls are getting on my nerves, as they always do. Folks, it’s hardware, not a religion.
I haven’t watched any video from the State of the Union address yet. I’ll look for some highlights and bullet points before I go to bed. Prez, just a reminder that your new-guy free pass is just about expired. Obama fanboys/fangirls get on my nerves even more than the Apple fanboys/fangirls.
