foot update
Public
Salt Lake City residents eat (imbibe?) more Jell-O per capita than any other city in the United States. In fact, Jell-O was made the official state snack in 2001. Utah also leads the nation in antidepressant prescriptions. Ah, the wondrous claims to fame my home state has ...

Anyway, I mention Jell-O because in the next couple of months I'll be consuming lots of gelatin - and glucosamine, chondrointin sulfate, and methylsulfonylmethane - to help rebuild my big toe joint. It's back to aching, but the X-rays don't show any difference in the bones compared to the X-rays back in December, so the latest hypothesis is that worn cartilage is causing swelling and pain, which in turn cause more swelling and pain. I see the foot doctor again next week to talk all this over.

Something like that - it was consistently up there when we were in high school. And that was unmarried teen pregnancy rates, too. So it's not just all these Mormons popping out babies from age 18. :~)

not suprisingly: byu is among the top 10 most homophobic colleges in the country.

oddly enough, however, it was LESS homophobic than uconn...

I hope you didn't overexert your foot walking around in Utah :) Sorry to hear about its slow state of healing.

I never eat jell-o... well, I did the other week, but that was the first time in like... 5 years I swear. I guess we do eat a lot of jell-o, which is why we're the jell-o capital of the world, but yeah.. Utah is an extremely odd state, though this is part of why I love it so much. There's so much monoculture of H. saps here that the people that do stand out really stand out and are the neatest humans I know of, not like I have experience living anywhere else in my adult life, but yeah.

Well, my family reunions certainly up the Jell-O ante: sometimes half the dishes on the table, for any meal, are Jell-O based. Jell-O cubes can be an appetizer, Jell-O with carrots and celery makes a salad, Jell-O with whipped cream and maraschino cherries is a fruit salad, Jell-O with pudding and marshmallows is a dessert, Jell-O with granola and whipped cream is a breakfast ...

I always associate Jell-O and country music with family reunions. But I actually don't mind Jell-O.

You should have a jell-o party! We could all try to make really ridiculous jell-o desserts and dress in 50s clothes or something.

I hope your foot gets better quickly. Maybe you should stop dancing for a while.

Good idea! Jell-O shots ... Jell-O wrestling ... it could be very interesting. :~)

Speaking of ridiculous Jell-O desserts, in tenth grade my friend and I set out to make just that as a statement of irony for a Valentine's party. We used a heart-shaped mold and about ten varieties of Jell-O and Jell-O pudding, most of them different colors. It soon became a frightening jiggly mess - it was wonderful. :~)
