Team Edward - page 2 of this thread
I'm quite amused by this discussion.
MeMo07 - sorry, called you Team Edward above - [quote="EnjoyTheCake"]Otherwise, I've really enjoyed the cat pictures, and dog stories, and clean freaks with their wacky and wild routines. [quote]
Yep her story was a hoot. She should share it every time she hands someone a slice of her cake.
To taxnerd - I agree - my husband asks clients if they have pets in their homes prior to entering. The cat that scratched him and sent him to the ER was owned by a woman that said she didn't have any pets. When he returned 3 days later to pick up his tools he asked why she'd said she didn't have pets. She said she considered her cat to be part of the family. Her family member cost my husband a great deal of pain, medical bills, and 3 days of lost work.
It wouldn't occur to him to ask someone if they allow their cat to walk around their food and sample it. When we are at potluck events, he only eats whatever I brought.
Enjoy your day, ladies.
I am also not an animal person. I didnt really grow up with them (beyond some birds and fish) so I cant really stand when I go to peoples houses and they have animals inside - especially the kitchen.
oops double post.
Your cat is very cute. I have cats my self and get nervous about my cats licking the cakes. I feel so bad that you had to bake the cake over. At least the cake had not been decorated yet.
What does it do to u to make it like Liquid Gold??
[quote="jkalman"] And to the one who mentioned the Androgel.. I am on hormones for an IVF cycle.. I am all over the place and it makes me a little beeotchy at time.. okay most of the time.. What is it usually prescribed for?[/quote
Kiva-Since I started using it I have lost 15 lbs (I don't exercise because it causes me pain because of Endometirosis), my Cholesterol went down from 356 to 185, my triglycerides went down from 700 to 98, my glucose from 150 to 86, I was able to stop taking meds for impared glucose intollerance and chol/trig. I have had increased energy, I was able to get off of my anti-depressant, my dry skin has dissappeared, and my facial skin is more...um..supple? I don't know how to explain it. It has helped severly with my migrains. I haven't had one in over a year. I do notice that I am..well..."taking up for my self" more and being alot less co-dependent.
Jkalman- Good luck with the IVF. I went threw 3 rounds of that and it is hell on your body and your mental well being. Especially when it doesn't work after you have put your self so far in debt that if you do have a child their children will still be paying your medical bills.
I was prescribed this after my total hysterectomy. My body requires high levels of estrogen to stop hot flashes, night sweats, head aches, and mood swings. However, the high levels of estrogen caused me to grow a 4th breast. (Super numerary breast???) I say 4th because I grew one during the IVF cycles that had to be removed. This 4th one was just removed on the 8th of Aug. along with a fibroid tumer. So, my WONDERFUL Dr. gave the the testosterone to "supliment" the estrogen.
Sorry for the long post. It is late and I didn't want to mess with the PM.
Varika & Memo07...bravo I say to you.
Lu9129-That is just to damn funny.
banba- Sorry chica, if you come out whith gloves on you should be prepared to use them.
This is my final clarification on this topic.
Yes I was and am still amused by this discussion. I find it interesting how quickly WE are to jump to conclusions. I enjoyed the various pet stories that were provided.
Yes I did say clean freaks with wacky and wild routines. I was referring to one particular poster and I did not feel it was necessary to call her out or put her on the spot. But her cleaning routines were way above normal or average.
I did not know that posting this story would set off such a fire storm. I thought it was a cute story about a cat who liked cake and her mom who was tired and had to remake a cake she was serving to other people.
Thanks everyone who let their voices be heard or read as the case may be. Please let this thread die.
I fully support sanitary baking and decorating procedures. I would never knowingly serve food to anyone (outside of my immediate family) that contained hair, human or animal, or saliva, human or animal, or a multitude of other contanimants that can be found in a persons home or on their being while they prepare food.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read through this heated, thread. Now please, please please, let this die.

It WAS ME and I am not ashamed or offended. I know my customers take solace in knowing I operate that type of kitchen....That being said, as you requested..it is dead.
I don't currently have a cat, we live in a no-pets-allowed apartment. When I did have cats, I had one in particular, Stoney, a Russian Blue who attacked fresh loaves of bread. He didn't eat them, he just jumped on top of it and sunk his teeth in, shaking his head violently from side to side as if he was trying to snap it's "neck" or sever an "artery" or something. I had to keep my bread in the fridge until I got a bread box. He treated it like it was truly his prey!
Oh and one time, some friends came over and we were eating take out sandwiches in the den. We were sitting on the couch eating and watching TV. I had turned my head to talk to someone, when Stoney seized the moment, ran full speed and ripped off half of my sanwich as he ran by! I didn't even know he had done it until everyone started laughing and I turned to look at what was so funny...my cat in the corner eating the last bite! Yeah, it was already gone! He was a piggy for sure. He was very protective of his food around my other cats, and growled and pawed at anyone who came near. He was also my lap cat! I sure do miss him.
