I’m not sick or dead or anything. I’m just swamped – and I mean absolutely swamped – with the programming gig right now. I put in 76 hours last week. It’s Wednesday, and I’ve already put in 37 hours this week. On Sunday, I worked right up until the Super Bowl kickoff, watched the game, then worked until midnight. I don’t suppose this is doing my cortisol levels any good, but that’s the situation. We’ve got a bit of an IT emergency going on, and I landed the job of solving it.
Obviously, I don’t much have much time for posting, but I did come across an interesting tidbit that I’ll share while I wait for my test program to finish running:
Remember the big hubbub when the half-baked brains at Julian Bakery made a ham-handed attempt at fat-shaming Jimmy Moore and Diane Sanfilippo? It was high comedy. Jimmy and Diane both reported that Julian Bakery’s (ahem) low-carb bread spikes blood sugar as high as any other bread – a fact that several other people have reported.
Outraged that bloggers were reporting facts, Gary Collins and Heath Squealer … er, Squier … acted like the dumb jocks they are: they figured if they fat-shamed Jimmy and Diane, this would somehow convince people their bread doesn’t spike blood sugar like any other bread, and people would run out and buy it. It was a particularly stupid move making Diane a target of fat-shaming, since she appears in public frequently and anyone with eyes can see she isn’t fat.
When I wrote a post calling them dumb jocks and adolescents, the semi-literate Mr. Collins (who assured me he “rights” his own books) attempted to rebut that opinion by:
- Calling me a coward for attacking him from behind a computer … after he and Mr. Squealer attacked Jimmy and Diane from behind a computer.
- Accusing me of having no respect for the military because by gosh, he put his life on the line to protect my freedom of speech. (My lack of respect for the military would come as a shock to my Ranger nephew, who served two tours in Iraq.)
- Threatening to find me at a conference someday and commit some sort of violence – thus proving how truly proud he is of putting his life on the line to protect my freedom of speech.
Yup, he replied by acting like an adolescent dumb jock. You can’t make this stuff up.
In a follow-up post, I wrote this:
So Mr. Squealer’s qualifications come down to being born 1) naturally lean, and 2) to a mommy who started a bakery and was willing to make him the CEO. (Given his recent behavior, that might prove to be a bad decision.)
At the time, I meant that his adolescent, dumb-jock behavior could turn off his potential buyers. But it looks as if there’s another reason his mommy will regret the decision: Julian Bakery apparently doesn’t pay its bills, at least according to a lawsuit by FedEx.
FedEx claims that Julian Bakery established a credit account for delivery of its products and ran up a bill of $241,274,27. FedEx claims it has sent invoices and demanded payment, but Julian Bakery refuses to pay.
Yup, making your dumb-jock son the CEO of your company was probably a bad move, Mom. (But hey, he and Mr. Collins have abs!! They’re quick to point that out as proof of their superior knowledge … because it’s not as if they’re natural mesomorphs or anything.)
After the idiotic and ham-handed attempt at fat-shaming, many of you said it would serve these bozos right if Julian Bakery went out of business. If the FedEx lawsuit is any indication, you may get your wish.
Think of it as low-karb karma.
Back to the programming …
