I think I'll make some deviled eggs this week.....
Comment by Sentient Biped on July 21, 2014 at 2:35pm
I'm starting to feel like the black sheep here... My miss-spent youth was full of experimentation and (mis)adventure. Which is ironic because
i was a sincere and devout Baptist, at least at the start. It was my devout Catholic best friend who got me started with beer, Kools, and pot. My pot-head stage lasted all of 6 months - still Baptist, just high on more than Jesus - ending a few months into my Army enlistment after an especially wonderful amazing lid made me ask "what the hell was that? n
wow!!!" and it was heroin in the pot. Then I said goodby to that, no way Jose (actually it was Lorenzo) hit the road Sam and never touched the stuff again. Too bad because I had a big crush on Lorenzo. The cigs lasted another 5 years, harder to quit than pot, and I never cared much for alcohol anyway.

I was the most Goody Two Shoes around, except for the beer pot and tobacco! Than after that, Ive spent the rest of my life working like a Workhorse, but life is at least somewhat what you make it.

I truly love experience of taste and senses, good food, especially hot pepper, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, fresh garden foods, home made noodles and pasta, basil, pepper... way too much to spoil my taste and olfactory senses with anything that blurs those delights. And good coffee. And sweet honey in chai tea. But no Cannabis, no tobacco, and these days one beer or half glass of wine and I would pass out. Which is too bad because I love the flavor of a nice Chablis.

As for tattoos, I have those too. What people dont know, in part, is the pain of getting one is almost exquisite. Im not into pain, but getting, snd after, the tattoo the endorphins are released in a euphoric rush. It would almost be worth it to get an inkless tattoo just for the intense ferling.

Now you know Im strange. But the best thing is some strong garlic, or Tabasco, or basil.....

I think you're right Pat.

Spud, I grant that there is a dark side to alcohol, and that any benefits are probably far outweighed by the negative effects. Having said that, there is some evidence that moderate alcohol use may be beneficial to heart patients, and possibly assist in preventing certain heart conditions. Notice the term 'moderate.' Get beyond moderate, and there is no benefit.

In addition, I've recently read that a glass of red wine with dinner (along with an appropriate diet and exercise) may assist to type 2 diabetics.

I always though coffee smelled wonderful, so after I left Mormonism, I tried coffee, but did not like it.  I've tried several kinds and don't like any except some of Starbucks that has a huge amount of sweeteners and fruit flavors.  I don't buy Starbucks anymore because they charge 10 times what my budget can afford.  In fact, I don't even try making my own.  It doesn't sound like it's harmful, I just have better things to do than try to try getting rid of the bitterness.

I didn't try alcohol for several years, because I was concerned I might like it and get a bad habit, because any soft drink I like, I drink rather rapidly.  I finally decided I had developed enough self-control to be safe trying some.  

The two kinds of beer I've tried were horrible tasting.  Seven of the 9 kinds of wine I've tasted were almost as bad.  There was one wine I liked and several kinds of hard cider, but I still don't drink any alcoholic beverages because from what I've read, they are not good for the body.

Joan, rubbing cider vinegar on with a cloth or paper towel helps with itching.

James, I think that "Mellow Yellow" was a nickname for Nembutal capsules....a barbiturate.  (I was given a couple of those in a hospital in 1960 or '61 to prep me for surgery....made me sick as a dog.)

I wish I could keep my hands off my mosquito and spider bites that I got the other day when cleaning out the dead shrubs.

Chris, they must not have scratched any of your itches. Pleasure is such a strong motivator and if there is no pleasure, no motivation.

My granddaughters both have body piercing and tattoos. I tell them they look like the natives I saw in Indonesia who used these devices as decorations and to keep evil spirits away.
