[Ooh La La!]
Suki gave me a little scare yesterday morning. As I was getting ready for work, she started tearing around the house, crying, and then frantically licking her hind quarters. She kept trying to burrow into closets to hide, and was obviously in some discomfort. I called the vet's but they couldn't see her until this morning. I went to check on her in the afternoon and she seemed better. This morning she also seemed fine, so I cancelled her vet's appointment. I'll keep an eye on her over the weekend though.
Tomorrow is a birthday party for one of my boyfriends, Ethan. He'll be the big Oh-One on the 21st of this month.
And finally, it's a sad state of affairs when the Federal Government is the voice of reason when it comes to common sense.
WASHINGTON - If too many burgers and fries have left your waistline super-sized, don't expect a sweet pay-off in court, senators said Thursday. A bill would prevent people from suing restaurants and food manufacturers for making them fat.
"I think it's important not to blame poor eating habits on someone else," said Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and the sponsor of the bill.
The measure would block lawsuits related to obesity or weight gain, but not suits charging other kinds of injury or fraud. It is similar to one already introduced in the House.
The House held a hearing last month on the relatively new legal trend in which consumers are suing fast food chains like McDonald's and arguing that the food contributed to their obesity.
[It certainly is food for thought.]
