Salty language!

In my latest health odyssey (Trip thru the medical purgatory of hospital incompetence) I have had lots of time to perseverate on my diet and other things.

I am now on a lower salt diet in an attempt to lower the ol' BP even more. I find the BP meds pretty crappy. There is a side effect for everything. It's like making a wish, there is a good and bad.
I hate big pharma more and more, daily.
I would like to stop taking this bullshit medication.

So, My own tips for navigating this new world:

Cheese is a big no no. Swiss is ok in moderation, it's the lowest in sodium.

I found low salt potato chips, not bad. I don't eat massive amounts anyway, just a handful every few days. It fills the salt/treat void.

Soy sauce is deadly for sodium, so that's off my list. Using low sodium soup stock now in place of a lot of salt stuff. I made chow mien the other day, no soy sauce.

Peanut butter and onions. Yup, that is the current breakfast food in my life. I get the all natural peanut butter. No added salt, sugar or fat. On homemade bread, toasted.

Corporate welfare queens SUN News ask for more handouts. So they admit Free market is a fake.

Yup. The same free market prophets that consistently bitch and whine about FREEDUM and preach hateful things about all the not white people. SUN TV.

They have applied for mandatory carriage with the CRTC.
Its because they say they are losing MILLIONS a year because no one wants to pay extra for their particular brand of pig slop.

Geeze. Why don't they advertise then? Like other multimillion dollar corporations have to do?
Because they are them. And we are us. 

I pay enough already for cable.

Happy ho ho! Merry War on Christmas!

I hope Santa was good to all the good boyz and girlz.

We are sitting here in the Batcave having a quiet holiday. Its a scaled down affair.
The kidlets are happy with whatever Santa brought, which with today's consumer kids is amazing in and of itself. They got a whole lot of art supplies.
The grownups here are happy the lights are on and that there is food in the fridge. LOL

As for wishes, I am just hoping to be able to walk this coming year.

And although we are all supposed to celebrate good will and cheer and all that stuff, I sincerely hope a certain Dr gets a stocking full of reindeer shit. :)

Now, some tolerable Christmas songs! Heh.

Carol of the Bells.......Sorta. But totally awesome!

12 days of austerity

a thread on twitter, #CPCXmasCarols inspired this song. Sing along!

on the first day of austerity, Harper gave to me, a pink slip made from a tree....

On the second day of austerity, Harper gave to me, a thousand dead ducks,
and a pink slip made from a tree...

On the third day of Christmas Harper gave to me, higher income inequality, a thousand dead ducks  and a pink slip made from a tree.

Like a bad penny.....

I will always turn up....

I have been away a fair bit.

Couple items:

I experienced a small heart attack. No pain really, just a tightness in the chest and some arm and back pain. I was at work, and drove myself to the emerg. (not the best plan) Ya..... As Dr Prole said. OMG! That's so YOU!
anyhoo. All was fine on the EKG but they ran lots of bloodwork and six hours later the enzymes were elevated. Blah blah.

No going home for you! I was hooked up to machines that go PING!

After a few days of waiting in the hospital, making the nurses absolutely crazy and complaining about the food (Anyone who knows me can imagine how this went. It wasn't actually food, more like reconstituted kibbles'n'bits with less salt. That may be another blog post, I have pictures to share) I was shipped to another hospital for an angiogram.
Now, I don't want to frighten anyone, but that test? Holy shite.
They clamp you to the fucking bed to close the femoral artery afterwards.

Seriously. Totally fucked up.

Good news. My heart is just dandy. No sign of heart disease. YAY! ME!
Bad news, I am just a stressed out git who decided to blow. Stress thing.
