Sleep is a healthful alternative to falling down.

In this post: Saturday sleep overdose, food news, a product review. 

I know this might be the understatement of the century, but I think today was the laziest day of my entire life … and we’re talking about more than SIX DECADES here. Need proof? I slept until noon, ate lunch with Sam, decided it was time for a nap and conked out on the chaise in the family room for another three and a half hours with Around the World in Eighty Days (1956) starring David Niven. Truth be told, I’ve been fatigued lately due to diabetic autonomic neuropathy — which includes being short of breath and getting dizzy — so sleep is a healthful alternative to falling down.

And now it’s time for another helpful Howdygram public service! Here are a couple of instructional videos for the food-challenged among us. Enjoy. And tell your friends.

In other breaking news, it seems that McDonald’s mysterious McRib sandwich is back on the menu for a limited time ... that bizarre, sauce-covered fake pork slab that boasts throngs of rabid fans from coast to coast. Recently a friend of a friend of a Reddit user snapped the following photo of “raw McRib meat” from the stock room of his local McDonald’s.
If you were expecting something palatable, you might need to lower your expectations. I think this crap looks like ATTIC INSULATION.

As long as I’m still blabbing about food, please mark your calendar for the SALE OF THE YEAR. Through January 31 you can buy 99¢ corn dogs at Wienerschnitzel! Oh boy, right? (Personally, I don’t know the regular price of a Wienerschnitzel corn dog but if they usually charge more than 99¢ you’re being robbed.)
And finally, a product review! Let me tell you about the wonderful, entertaining, handy-dandy BETTER LIVING PRODUCTS FOAM SOAP DISPENSER that I bought recently from Amazon (click here). I love this silly thing, people. The base is marked with fill lines for liquid soap, water and space for air at the top. That’s it. What squirts from the nozzle is GLORIOIUS, FOAMY and FUN for the entire family! I’m using Dawn New Zealand Spring dishwashing liquid (seriously, that’s the name of the fragrance) and needed probably less than one-eighth of a cup.

If you’ve ever dreamed of a foaming soap dispenser of your very own just like the soap you get in the very best public toilets, THIS IS IT. And you can even choose from a bunch of exciting decorator colors such as black, orange and citrus green. Also gray. Thank you.
