No SHave Never

Today, we have Baby Gurr’s birthday party. It is an exciting day. She is celebrating turning two years old. And this year, unlike last year, she has some real people friends coming over. I love parties.

Cooking is a joy of mine that I take joy in enjoying. Especially meat cooking. I own a Big Green Egg, the most awesomest cooking machine ever. Any time I get the opportunity to cook for people, I am all in. So, bbq is what my whole house smells like. If my wife would let me, I would open the back door and let all the glorious smell come in. But, she won’t so I don’t. Unless I cook when she is at work, then I’m in charge!

I cooked about about 40 plus pounds of bbq.

Ya’ll see, cooking pulled pork is a right of passage for bbq chefs. It is definitely not as difficult to cook as people try to make it sound. It’s quite easy as I explain in such an easy manner in this link to Rantings of an Amateur Chef Click Here.

We are having about 20 people over for this shin dig. Sara has been on my ass for about a month to get my damn hair cut and trim my beard. Now, this is how this process works. She starts telling me that my hair/beard is getting long and needs a’cuttin about once every month. Then it turns into every couple weeks, then once a week. Finally, when I get “you need to get your damn hair cut and trim your beard, it’s gross”, everyday I know I gotta get something done quick. I start getting the “I’m not gonna “”snuggle”” with you if you don’t get a haircut” and I know its threat level- For Damn Real!

Last night, I was getting all this bbq done and before Sara went to bed she asked, “are you going to shower tonight”. I say “yes”. Sara- “well you better shave, it’s Audrey’s birthday party.” I trimmed up my beard for my beautiful, wonderful wife and Baby Gurr.
I feel as though I trimmed too much, I am a little bummed. I hope I didn’t hurt the beard too much, I blamed it on Sara.

My wife knows I am not going to cut my beard off, ever. Not never ever. So she tolerates it and me. In return I must tolerate her intoleration, so that she will tolerate in a reciprocal manner.

Pictures of the birfsday party will come later, in another post.

It is no surprise or coincidence that beards typically have large body sizes. The majority of beards could probably stand to lose a pound or two. Those bearders who are of the persuasion of being of the chunky persuasion do not envy those who might be a bit more fit.

As I run across diets that tickle my fancy, I wanted to pass along the information. I, me, myself, Paul, in no way am I suggesting the use or implementation of any diet. This is just informing those willing to accept information. I for one, do not believe in “diets”.

I have never done this diet, but it does not look that awesome. The Grapefruit Diet. If you are an active person, DO NOT DO THIS DIET! Caloric intake is 800-1000 calories a day. That’s some bullshit right there. If the most exercise you get in a day is waking up and walking to the potty, then you can probably live through this diet. Uber active folk, y’all gonna perish.

Just to be clear. I damn love Grapefruit!

I do not know why I am talking about this right now, it is kind of weird. But I’m just gonna go with it. So ya’ll read along and just go with it too. I promise you will not know anything more than before you started reading. But I always say all the time that, “you can’t waste anything that you can’t wipe up with a wash rag.” In other words, no matter how uninformative this information based conversation is, you won’t waste any time or anything reading it. In other words, to the last other words, it is worth your time to give up some time to gain the knowledge that you want to gain. Ok.

If you exercise, hopefully you know about caloric replacement with healthy calories.

The information I gathered about the Grapefruit Diet is from Web MD. Which is on the internet, so there is no way in hell it’s wrong, because not only is it on the internet, I Googled it and Google is never wrong.

Here is the Web MD link for the Grapefruit Diet

Down near the bottom of the article is another article about Birth Control Options for Busy Moms. I’m not too caught up on my birth control knowledge right now. They make BC specifically for ‘busy” moms? And by “busy” do they mean “forgetful”? That’s what I think they mean. Ya’ll should call and demand an explanation.

On another note, dealing with the same note of dieting. Ya’ll make a conscientious educated decision and do what ever the hell ya’ll want.

Lemme go see if I can find a picture that I can some way tie into this conversation and it be irrelevant.

Here it is. This will work. Heyyyooo. Some will. Some won’t.

Egg and berries.

YOLO is only applicable if you don’t die.
