I'm pretty sure Kxmode is making a "Silence of the Lambs" joke - (I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti).
A census taker came to my door today to test me. I was also eating snack foods and ate lunch later on.

They shouldn't be coming to your door unless you didn't comply with the survey already. Sure it wasn't some kind of scam or attempt at identity theft?
Can't you order a freezer from Amazon?
We had a bit of a problem storing some of our food to start with, and with the additional stockpiling the pandemic lockdown inspired, this had become a bit of a crisis.
As for the socializing, if this continues into the NFL season (which seems likely) I'm really going to miss my Sunday noon to six NFL watch parties. Which has been a standard with several friends for approaching two decades now...
Chicken is the most fattening and estrogenic of the meats. Fish is full of antiobiotics, chemical pollutants and mercury. Also we don't even have an enzyme to digest uric acid, so hello kidney stones and gout.
Your health appears to be fine, but you can't see your arteries (which would have started getting fatty streaks in them even while you were in the womb if your mother ate meat/dairy/eggs - this is what studies show). You can't see that your kidneys are hyper-filtrating from the animal proteins which are more acidic than plant protein. You can't see the inflammation in your entire body (well you sorta can if you stop eating meat, your face loses puffiness within days). You can't see the pre-cancerous polyps or the diverticulitis in your colon. You can't see your enlarged prostate. etc etc etc. You don't know you have these issues until you get some symptoms, by then these issues are really serious.
I think it's hard to go from 100 mph to full stop for a lot of people and that's why retirement can take a while with some folks. My ma went kind of sideways for about 2 years after retirement before she settled into it.
I personally retired at 54, four years ago. My cholesterol is fine, I am on no medications, I enjoy an occasional beer (and sometimes bacon). I am however overweight, it is something I am working on(again). My happiness is *meh* but then what can you expect from a professional curmudgeon?

I believe there has already been a leak suggesting they want something which could be interpreted as either military forces or warring natives. But hey .. who knows?
Warriors is pretty generic IMO.
Those poor dogs look terrified. I wonder how many beatings they've had to endure so that woman could get her 15 minutes of fame?
They had me wait in the car until they were ready for me to avoid patients clustered in the waiting room. They took my temperature on the way in, had air filters in every room, and even had me gargle with anti-viral mouthwash. The thing I hate most about going to the doctor is feeling like I'm going to get sick from the other patients, but this alleviated such concerns to an extreme degree.
