Bagels and buns, bursting forth.

In this post: Crime and punishment, bagels and buns, future shock.

Finally … a petition that’s near and dear to my heart! This one recommends a charge of sedition — including arrest and trial — against the House GOP for conspiring to extort the President, the American people and United States government into abolishing the Affordable Care Act. Sedition is a felony, and the definition appears below. (FYI ... “force” doesn’t refer only to physical violence.) You’ll feel terrific after you sign this petition ... even if nobody ever gets arrested.

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire ... by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States ... they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

Sam is out running a few errands — depositing checks, picking up a prescription, dropping off his dry cleaning — while I faithfully hold down the fort at Howdygram headquarters, waiting for him to get home so we can eat lunch. (It’s always about food around here, isn’t it?) I think today we’ll do mozzarella sticks. Sam brought home a gigantic box from Costco a few days ago that’s a lot cheaper than the mozzarella sticks we usually buy from Schwan’s and we can’t wait to try them! (It’s okay if you don’t give a crap about this, however.)

Last night I found a fascinating article on Paleofuture, one of my all-time favorite websites. It’s a “think piece” from the Ladies Home Journal — published in 1900 — that attempted to predict what life would be like within the next 100 years. It’s a terrific read. Click the link below and have some fun, okay?

Breaking news. I’ve got a quick post-lunch update on those Costco mozzarella sticks: NOT SO GOOD. They were bigger and cheesier that Schwan’s but the crumb coating was absolutely tasteless and I couldn’t finish them. Sam wasn’t thrilled, either, although I noticed he ate them all, most likely because he was hungry and wanted to move on to his morning nap. Thank you.

As I write this post I’m waiting for a large order from that will burst forth from a UPS truck sometime within the next half-hour. This time I’m expecting two bags of Great Low Carb Bread Company “everything” bagels and one bag of hamburger buns. THIS IS VERY EXCITING, PEOPLE! I haven’t touched an ordinary bagel in FOUR YEARS (way too many carbohydrates when you have diabetes) and usually eat my burgers sans buns as well. I don’t know yet what I’ll have for dinner, but you can bet that bagels and buns are on the menu no matter what.
I sure hope these things are worth the wait. And at $7.95 per bag I also hope they’re worth the expense. Stay tuned for additional details and thank you for reading this.
