Don’t have money for a stove? Buy a Convection Oven & Portable Double Burner…

No Comments »

Most of us are accustomed to the big, common stove that provides us with a large oven for baking and broiling, and a big stove-top with four electric eyes for our boiling, frying, and simmering needs.  However, those hefty stoves generally cost a lot of money, unless you can find a good used one for sale, and many of us poor folks can only hope that they last for years and years, so we won’t have to worry about coming up with all that cash to replace one.

Well, on another note:  If you’ve finally left home and just starting out, chances are that you either ended up in a furnished apartment or decided to rent a place that already came with a stove, refrigerator, and so on.  BUT, what about when you decide to go buy a place of your own or perhaps move into another home that doesn’t come equipped with all of those convenient appliances and you are short on money?    Yeah, it sucks doesn’t it?

Anyway, that’s the main reason for this blog post, to possibly help provide a temporary, monetary solution for your cooking dilemma…  Have you ever heard of a convection oven and a portable double burner?  Well, if you currently don’t have the money to spend on a bulky stove, you may have to settle for a compact, portable double burner and a convenient convection oven, until you save up enough cash.  I must say, you may find yourself becoming fond of these little cooking devices and just say “to hell with the big stove,” as they don’t take up very much room nor do they waste much electricity.  The convection oven, for example, won’t have to heat up a large area to cook your food, so this means less electricity and less unwanted heat (during the warm-weather months) into your home.  The portable, electric double burner works like 2 typical stove-top eyes, so there is no need to explain the mechanics behind this device, other than saying it is a cheap alternative.

Hey, not everyone has everything handed down to them and/or gets stuff for free, so we gotta to do what we have to do.  If you’re interested in these two items, you don’t have to worry about browsing through random offline stores, housewares, and whatnot.  Amazon has just about everything; plus, shopping online is just so much more relaxing and simple.  Personally, I hate waiting in long lines and being in crowded areas, so as you can tell, I have did a fair amount of shopping online, among other things. Ha!

Addicted to Plastic Surgery? You must have too much free time & money…

1 Comment »

What a dilemma, huh?  Too much free time and money?  What’s that?  Ha-ha!  Well, some folks out there really do have too much idle time and more money than they know what to do with; maybe I’m jealous.  Then again, I could scramble this post’s title and it would still make sense:  “Addicted to free money?  Have too much time for plastic surgery?”  Ha!  Okay, okay…  Now back to the actual topic at hand:

There is always a big buzz going on about plastic surgery, breast implants, and so on, and especially when it enters the celebrity world.  On occasions, I’ll do a web search for sexy images and subject matter that relates to bikini babes, hot celebrities, and glamour models – you know, in case I want to add additional image-gallery pages for my “Exotic Babes & Glamour Models – Gallery Links” post.

Well, upon searching today for a new model or celebrity to feature on yet another gallery page at perpendicularity.org, I run across all this chatter about Heidi Montag, plastic surgery, and breast implants.  When I first seen all this crap that was blocking my view of her nice boobs and fine body, I initially thought, “really, who cares; this is nothing new; what’s the big deal?”  Then, after continuing on with my painstaking image searches, I went back and started reading some of the verbal dribble, to see what all the hoopla was about.

It’s about people who end up being addicted to plastic surgery.  Yeah, this is not a typical issue for us “common” folks with a regular job, kids, pets, daily-life problems, etc., I know…  That is another reason why I mentioned in the title, that a person must have too much free time and money to have this problem to begin with.  Of course, there are more reasons besides having too much free time and an excess supply of money, but regardless, this stuff isn’t cheap and you obviously must have a lot of time to nitpick flawed features on your body and whatnot.

The question is:  When are you considered to be addicted to plastic surgery?  The questions that some of these people may need to be asking their selves:  Am I happy with myself on the inside?  Will I ever be satisfied with my looks?  Why do I feel the need to be a perfect model for society or for people that don’t even know or care about me?  Do I use my time wisely?  Blah, blah…  The corny self-help questions could be endless, but that’s for the ones with plastic surgery addictions to figure out.

Anyway, here’s the meat of the post:  I was going to feature Heidi Montag on either a gallery page dedicated to just her or simply add her to the celebrity babes page.  But, since I read all that other stuff about plastic barbie models and people with surgery addictions, I changed my mind and thought I’d just do a regular blog post about it.  Besides, I’ll still drop down a few sexy images of Heidi Montag, so it is a win-win situation for the blog, regardless.  😉

Heidi Montag has “enhanced” her body a lot lately.  Her breast implants look really nice (thanks for adding them, by the way), and I’ve read about some of her plastic surgeries, such as rhinoplasty, collagen lip injections, brow-lifts, chin reductions, etc.  I must say, I’ve seen what frequent rhinoplasty can do to other people, and I wouldn’t recommend it.  Those lip injections look nice, but people who keep getting their face and body operated on for supposed “better looks,” really don’t even realize the potential damage it can cause.

Read this excerpt about Heidi Montag per Wikipedia: “In December 2010, Montag appeared on the cover of Life & Style magazine, revealing scars and marks caused from her surgeries. In the magazine interview, Montag says, “Parts of my body definitely look worse than they did presurgery. This is not what I signed up for.” Heidi adds, “I definitely think I should have been way more informed. I think that doctors should really walk you through all aspects of it, not just the glamorous side of it. Doctors, it’s like they’re selling you cookies or something. I would love to not be ‘plastic girl’ or whatever they call me. Surgery ruined my career and my personal life and just brought a lot of negativity into my world. I wish I could jump into a time machine and take it all back. Instead, I’m always going to feel like Edward Scissorhands.”   Heidi Montag, on another occasion, also revealed that she almost died from too much Demerol, reducing her breath rate to five breaths per minute, but said it was worth it.  Go figure…

Well, there you have a fine example of the negative sides of plastic surgery and how it is not always helpful for you in the long-term – especially if you’re a celebrity and are always surrounded by media, gossip, etc.  I don’t know, but maybe she was only temporarily addicted to plastic surgery, but enough about all of this celebrity chatter.  Lets get on with the sexy images that were enhanced by these lovely breast implants and facial altering surgeries…

Hmm, yummy… Regardless of all the bad talk about her surgeries and implants, Heidi Montag looks good to me!  The only thing I’d like to see changed about her, is perhaps maybe attaching a bigger backside on her – but that often happens anyway, over time; ha!  I think she is married or something, and I doubt if hardly anybody who reads this post will ever see her in person, but this is one of the pros to Google image search, ya know…  Ha-ha!  However, I will say, if I ever find a girl in the future who is addicted to plastic surgery and looks hot like that, in addition to having too much money and free time on their hands:  I’ll gladly keep her busy, spend her money and break her prior plastic surgery addiction.  Yeah, the next random, rich, plastic babe with big fake boobs who decides to plop into my lap, will end up broke, tired, and addicted to drugs and alcohol.  Yep, I’ll fix ’em…  LOL!  Just kidding, I think…

Well folks, I hope you at least enjoyed the images on this post; cheers!

If your Pets won’t eat bread, maybe they’re overfed?

4 Comments »

This sickens me to no end, when I see spoiled, “domesticated” animals that are fed (past tense of feed) to such a degree that they will pass, pick or choose what they ingest in such a manner that it reminds you of a pompous glut without reason for finicky ways.  WTF?  They sure gobble up all of that high-dollar bagged and canned food from the market (that you purchase), along with certain table-scrap food that you pay a decent price for, but no-no-no, how dare these certain special animals get offered the so-called “comfort food” known as cheap bread.  Yeah, I think some of these “pets” are obviously overfed……

[This post is fueled by the rebellion of my generous hand-out today, while thinking I was being efficient by not wasting food and providing variety to their diet by giving bread to the animals/pets that dwell at my current residence, as opposed to my usual meat trimmings and delightful “toss outs,” but maybe I spoiled them so it is my fault, right?  In case you think negatively of the post below, when it comes to pets or animals, I generally like most…, well, some animals, but the ratio of ‘like vs. not’ is still probably higher than what I feel towards the general population of the Homo sapiens of today…]

If you have pets, especially the typical cat or dog, and you go to throw out some fresh bread (wheat or white, doesn’t matter if you’re hungry – trust me) due to you having an excess amount of it and because you don’t want to waste it, and your outdoor and/or indoor pets, fish, dogs, birds, cats, rats, whatever, go up and sniff it then walk, fly or swim away, I have a feeling they are not living the life of a “trying-to-survive” animal anymore.  By the way, I was joking about the fish; I just threw that in there for the effect.  I don’t recommend that you put anything other than aquarium food or live bait into your tank for feeding, although some fish will eat bread.  Ha!

This is a humorous rant that is poor-boy related, sort of like my “price per calorie ratio” post, but regardless, it will contain some merit or reason:

Many of us realize, that America is probably one of the most, shall I put it nicely, “overfed countries” in the world.  Hey, look, many folks are really hungry and just relish the moment of welfare while consuming mass quantities of food while exerting very little effort during the day.  In fact, for some, the biggest workload of their life, is enduring the hardship of going out and throwing all that free food into their shopping cart while making the brave, almighty swipe at the register upon checkout, with their “all-you-can-eat-as-long-as-you-keep-having-kids-and-never-work” card or the “help-help-I’m-disabled-from-wiping-my-own-ass-from-the-free-food” card or whatever or however you want to label it.  WAIT!!!  I’m sorry, I thought this post was about pets or animals; oops!  Please forgive me…  Lets start again, shall we?

If your Pets won’t eat bread, maybe they’re overfed?  Oh yeah, that post…

Anyway, back to the point:   Humans are the only thing on this planet that can become a spoiled, pampered, coddled waste of mobile manure, ya know?  No?  Yeah, well, okay…  Humans can also cause other animals to become such things, like being overly picky when it comes to food.

Below, is a cat that thinks bread doesn’t even equal a decent necklace [story continues below the image]:

bread_2

If ya got the money to select specially trimmed pork chops for your little doggy dog, and give your coddled cat freshly cooked ‘ground round’ beef – all while feeding your aquarium fish (by the way, I caught my biggest fish [small-mouth bass] using a bread-ball on a hook – at the creek!) freshly minced shrimp while throwing your children or yourself some bologna or hot dogs for the prime humanoid meal of the day, I’d say that YOU have a fuckin’ priority problem!  BUT, if you go to give your dependent pets some damn bread and they snub their nose at you, I say “to hell with ’em” and let their spoiled selves go back into the wild and get more independent and re-find their inner roots of survival. 

…Hey, don’t get me wrong, I buy decent quality pet food for my dependent animals, but it gets old real quick, when I’m a struggling low-middle class worker that can barely feed myself, and I got snobbish little pets that think they should have the finest meats in the world while I often settle for peanut butter and bread for lunch.  What’s wrong with this picture?  Does the terms ‘spoiled bastards’ pop into your mind?  Anyone?  Is this not a metaphor for the new-age America?   I have often thought, while leaving for work while having some whining cat crying at the door for food, “why don’t you go out and hunt; kill something; get your own damn food?!”  Have the domesticated animals of today took heed to our ways and seen how lazy most of us are and have become even more pathetic than the typical sluggish glut from the land of the free?   Well, maybe that is pushing it a bit much, but I really do see a correspondence here, between those two factors of domesticated animals versus human characteristics…  Uh, uh, cheers?

At any rate kitty kitty, here is a piece of bread for you:

bread_1

On another note, there are some “interesting characters” out there who will swear up & down that certain animals shouldn’t eat this or that or it will cause a certain disorder, a biological malfunction or this type of organ failure, this disease, and that type of illness that leads to this fatal form of demise that only the animal doctors can deal with.  Oh, really?  Have you ever been starving and thought to analyze whether a certain type of grain, vegetable, meat, etc., was bad for you?  Yeah, whatever!  Have ya ever heard of adaptation, survival, evolution and acclimation?  Take your “do-not-eat-list” for the animals and shove it where you will only hope the sun will shine one day!  Ha-ha! Okay?  Ney?  Either way, STFU!  Trust me, if they don’t like it or it makes them sick, many of these animals won’t bother eating it.  Plus, I have a dog that is 13 years old and has ate mass quantities of chicken bones its entire life, along with all types of human food and a lot of other stuff that some of these “gurus” say you can’t feed your dog!  BUT, the other day, along with the cats, she didn’t eat bread either!  LOL!

bread

Oh, never mind…  I think this post had something to do with “If your Pets won’t eat bread, then maybe they’re overfed,” but I sort of lost track along the way.  Either way, I think it is bound for some “whole wheat” commercial or something or perhaps, in replacement for cheap table-scraps for your animals, maybe we could throw in some generic cat or dog food that is made from 50% filler material like saw dust and fecal matter.  Yay!  Okay, pet lovers, happy feeding and have a good rest of the day…   By the way, the spoiled gluts out there will never understand the true message behind this “pet” post, that is, if they can comprehend above 8th grade level English and also have the ability to read something besides a menu from McDonalds and whatnot; but for some of you, it will hit right at home for what this post actually stands for.

However, back to this bread subject without the pets: the only real bread to me is called “wheat bread,” which should have been the only bread to start with!  Why strip away all the nutrients, over process, and declare it as some magnificent “white bread” when all you did is rob the damn loaf?  It is sort of like comparing white rice to brown rice, table salt to sea salt, black tea to green tea, and so on…   Cheers!

Buy Stainless Steel Skillets, Frying Pans & Cookware Online…

1 Comment »

I don’t know about most of you, but I enjoy cooking and preparing big meals with lots of side items, etc.  I must say, unfortunately, this “enjoys cooking” thing is an odd trait for the typical caveman, such as myself.  However, I can’t say that I enjoy cleaning up the mess that I often make in the kitchen, but that’s besides the point…  Ha-ha!

Anyway, this promotional post is for the ones who are interested and would possibly like to buy stainless steel cookware, skillets, frying pans, etc., online.  Over the years, I have seen many good skillets and frying pans come and go.  I even tried that whole “iron skillet” thing like my granny does, and I even managed to screw that up.  Iron skillets are great, don’t get me wrong, but when you use a lot of acidic marinades for your meat, it doesn’t always go well with a seasoned iron pan, to say the least.  Plus, if you don’t dry them after you wash them out, iron is bad about rusting.  Basically, iron skillets are not for everyone…

Anyway, a while back, I got fed up with these cheap skillets from Walmart, and decided to finally spend the extra money and get me something that I know will last a lifetime (unless I figure out a way to destroy this one), and that is a big, solid, durable, stainless steel frying pan!  You can find them in most stores that sell housewares and kitchen products, including Walmart, but it’s so much easier to browse through a large selection by simply shopping online.

At any rate, I’m sick of using those shoddy aluminum-coated skillets that often flake off aluminum into your food, over time.   What did it in for me, when it comes to aluminum-coated frying pans, was the last time I fried salmon patties on one and ended up with specks and bits of aluminum-coated chips on the salmon!  After cleaning the pan, I notice there was chunks of aluminum gone!  But, in that case, I got what I paid for.  I desperately needed a larger pan, and my girlfriend went out and bought the cheapest one she could find.  After a few uses, it started chipping off badly.

I think most of us that cook regularly, have all seen the non-stick Teflon cookware go to hell, as it often scratches and loses bits of Teflon over time, that we can hope we didn’t have to ingest during the pan-degrading process.  Plus, those aluminum and Teflon-coated skillets can’t withstand the heat like the iron or stainless steel frying pans can.  

I don’t know if it is true or not, but I was once told that Teflon releases a poisonous vapor when overheated.  I hope not!  I remember one time, I was preheating a Teflon skillet and went outside just to throw out my trash.  Well, about that time, a neighbor started talking to me about something.  The next thing I know, after I totally forgot about the skillet I had on the oven under high heat, the smoke detectors are going off and there is a cloud of smoke everywhere.  Yes folks, I melted that sucker.  The Teflon skillet was now white and warped, and that chemical vapor was all in the house.  I had to air out my house by opening both doors and cut all the ceiling fans on for a couple hours.  I didn’t get sick, but I was also drinking beer and taking milk thistle, at the time, so maybe I flushed the toxins out, not sure.

Anyway, I’m getting off subject here.  After buying one of these stainless steel skillets, I have never been more satisfied with a piece of cookware in my life.  I don’t have to worry about overheating it, foods seem to naturally not stick to it, and it cleans very well.  No matter how dirty it looks, it wipes clean in no time at all, and best of all, I should never have to buy or replace it again!  Over time, I plan on replacing all of my pots and pans with stainless steel…
