friends with Santa?
I honestly don't get the whole hoopla about her touting a Diabetes drug. People are all sorts of worked up. Although I am sure doctors prefer you to change your diet and take medication, not just eat what you want and take medication, Paula hasn't said one thing and done another. It's not like she was telling you cooking how she does is good for you or saying you should eat healthy and then not doing it herself. Once she decided to be the spokesmodel, she admitted she had the disease and did say that her way of cooking shouldn't be what you're eating every day. If anything, she is the perfect example of how a poor diet will catch up with you.
On that same note, the drug company took a big risk picking her. I am just wondering about the thought process.
Underling Pitch Guy: Hey, how about we use Paula Dean as a rep for our Diabetes drug.
Boss: Um, isn't she overweight and not publicly watching what she eats?
Boss: It doesn't seem like she exercises or tries to cook Diabetes-conscious foods.
UPG: Nope. But, people really like her and she has nice hair.
Boss: That's true.
Anyone like to place a bet on how long before we see the "Paula Deen Cooking for Diabetes" cookbook on the shelves? I am seeing a Mother's Day special edition. I bet she and her sons will be on some Celebrity Fit Club or Celebrity Biggest Loser kind of show. Oprah is definitely going to have a show where she has Paula as a guest. Wait, she'll probably get the new, not that nice, but not too mean Rosie to do it and come on herself as well as a special guest offering to lend Paula her personal chef to help re-vamp all her delicious recipes. Mark my words.
Also in celebrity Sort of News, Pat Sajak has admitted to hosting Wheel of Fortune drunk on occasion. And he threw Vanna under the bus as well. No wonder they don't let her turn letters any more. He didn't actually say he was drunk, but he did say he and Vanna, on breaks between shows, would have 2 or 3 or 6 margaritas. He doesn't recall much about those shows but says no one complained so they must have been okay. How much do you wish you had a job that was so easy that you could do it drunk and no one would know the difference. I am little bit jealous of Pat. I am less jealous of Vanna because since they took away her actual letter-turning duty, she just looks silly running after the lit up letters and pointing.

Here's one that you probably would have guessed. Eating nothing but chicken nuggets for 15 years could actually kill you. Yes, it's true. A 17 year old girl in Birmingham U.K. has finally realized that 15 years of eating nothing but nuggets might be "really bad" for her. She seemed to realize it after she was recently rushed to the hospital from collapsing due to swollen veins in her tongue. She also has anemia and breathing problems. Now word on why her parents (or anyone) have let this go on all this time.
The article says that one item only diets are bad, but uses as their example an experiment conducted by a professor of human nutrition. This guy ate nothing but Twinkies for 10 weeks. He lost 27 pounds and 5 points off his BMI. Hello. That sounds like a plan if you ask me. My take away from all this is that all chicken nuggets is bad, but all Twinkies is healthful.

No Thank You.
I really don't want to appear immature (appear is the key word) but this just has too big an "ick" factor for me. Also, I really cannot take seriously anything that has the word "Diva" in the name. As if getting your period is something only the most sophisticated and urbane of us deal with (I wish - I would totally be off the hook).
After this last item, I think we have played Guess What enough for one day. I was going to tell you about my thoughts on mechanical pencils and pencils in general, but I think we will wait for the next time.
