I’m sorry there was no blog yesterday, I didn’t feel well and had an appointment in Dubuque with my neurologist. She told me that I shouldn’t take the migraine medicine she prescribed because they make my tongue swell up. She gave me new meds and told me that if I need to take them I should drive to an ER or walk-in clinic so someone can observe me. When I have a migraine the last place I want to be is sitting in a hospital or clinic. I’ll take my chances right here at home where I can be comfortable and rest. My
husband can observe me.
I called my regular doctor when I got home and told her that the antibiotics she gave me on Monday don’t seem to be working as I still feel really sick. She said they like to wait at least seven days before they try
something different and that I should call back on Monday. That really sucks, I’m dying here.
Yep, its official, the people on the bald Barbie Facebook page are totally freaking out. Mattel has announced that they are manufacturing Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton, Royal Couple, Barbie dolls. For $100 you can buy these collector’s items. So now Mattel is being condemned (by some)
for not manufacturing a bald Barbie and for thinking the Royal Couple is more important.
Heart Attack Grill
With all this talk lately about fish sticks and hotdogs we have to talk about what happened at the Heart Attack Grill on Saturday. For those of you not familiar with it, The Heart Attack Grill is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The restaurant is very clear with disclaimers about the high fat content in their meals and a sign near the entrance clearly reads, "Caution! This establishment is bad for your health.”
With a Hooter’s vibe, the staff playfully dresses
like a sexy medical staff and the nurses take your pulse before taking an order. People that weigh over 350 pounds can eat free. Heart Attack Grill‘s menu includes the simple, double, triple and quadruple
Bypass Burgers, Flatliner Fries which are deep-fried in pure lard, Jolt Cola (remember Jolt?), Butterfat Milkshakes and no-filter cigarettes.
On Saturday night a gentleman had a heart attack while eating a Triple Bypass Burger. Some of the customers in the restaurant thought it was a staged stunt and began taking pictures. Thankfully the gentleman is doing fine today, but man, talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy! The 570 pound spokesman
for the Heart Attack Grill died last year at the age of 29. This place is definitely going on my bucket list….but maybe I should put it towards the end of
Staying on our topic of unhealthy food, Mars Inc. announced that by the end of 2013 there will be no more king sized candy bars! They will only be manufacturing candy bars with 250 calories or less per serving. So fun size is now going to be the norm? Twicks, Skittles, Combos, Snickers and M&M’s will all be affected. Start stock piling now.
Have a wonderful Friday passengers!
