I May Have Mad Cow Disease

All aboard . . .


Mad Cow Disease is no joke. Especially when it’s happening to me. Really, only when it’s happening to me, otherwise, it’s pretty damn funny, let’s be honest. I mean, it’s called “Mad Cow,” which is hilarious. And, yes, I realize the scientific name is something like “Bovine Spongybrain” or something, but the folks who came up with “Mad Cow”? I tip my hat to you, sirs and madams.

ANYway, now that we’ve all agreed that Mad Cow is hysterical when it happens to other people, let’s get back to me.

I’m pretty sure I have the non-funny form of Mad Cow based on the following evidence:

  1. I ate some meat.
  2. I may have posted a nude photo of myself online, but I’m not sure because . . .
  3. . . . I seem to have brain problems.


Proof of Brain Problems

I almost bought a new blender despite the fact that the old one is RIGHT HERE where I walk past every day.


I almost bought a duplicate pair of my favorite shoes because I couldn’t find mine despite the fact that they were RIGHT HERE where I walk past every day.


I spent an hour searching for Pru, convinced she’d gotten outside or flushed down the toilet (it could happen) when the whole time she was in the chair I sit in EVERY DAY!


That’s Mad Cow, right? RIGHT? You can tell me. Don’t spare my feelings. Believe, me, I’d tell you. And would I ever laugh.

    I don’t think you have mad cow disease because, if those are ironclad symptoms, I’ve had it since the age of four (and it’s progressing). There are nine boxes of graham crackers in my pantry as we speak. So, either you aren’t technically “mad” or I should have been buried a few years ago.

    Glad you found them all, though.

    (Kudos to me for knowing better than blindly following your warned links. I’ll take your word for it.)

    Are you sure it’s mad cow and not Red Bull and, say, Wild Turkey or something?

    Because I think it sounds more like the latter instead of the former.

    Just saying.

    One cow versus the other, plus barnyard fowl.

    While I appreciate the idea of you having mad cow so I don’t have to, I don’t think you have it either. You have the same symptoms as my 10 year old (except for buying the blender, she doesn’t buy appliances) and I don’t think she has mad cow.

    I think you are just so smart that you are too busy thinking brilliant thoughts and are not able to waste time on the minutiae of everyday life.

    Well, the blender did blend into the white background…

    The shoes are almost under the rug. Okay, they’re on top of the rug, but they’re almost camouflaged.

    And cats are just sneaky. Prudence wasn’t in the chair the first time you looked, and went there when you were looking elsewhere.

    Cats like to screw with us. Sometimes they’re like suicidal homicidal maniacs, like when they sleep on stairs so you can step on them, killing them and then tripping yourself, falling to your own death.

    Older cats do that. Younger cats will just run between your legs so you trip while they dash away to safety.

    For the older cats, there is little you can do but watch your step.

    For the younger cats, watch them carefully. If they eye the can opener like they think they could make it work on their own, you’ve lost your usefulness to them.

    And then it’s only a matter of them finding the right moment…

    Like when Dave is at the top of the stairs, and you’re almost at the top. The cat runs between your legs, and you start to fall back. Dave tries to catch you, but you fall despite his efforts. The cat runs and hides.

    When the police and ambulance arrive after Dave calls 911, he blames the cat, but there’s no cat around and Dave’s fingerprints are on your shoulders. Clearly, you were pushed.

    So, you’re dead, Dave’s in jail, and the cats realize they didn’t think this through once they’ve eaten all the canned food…

    Anyway, I think you have worse things to worry about than Mad Cow Disease. Worry about Mad Cats!

    You don’t have mad cow disease. You are just old. I know. ‘Cause I am an old goat.

    Okay. Everyone so far thinks you do NOT have mad cow disease.
    So, always one for being a rebel, I’m gonna say you probably DO. You like milk(shakes), you swat at flies when they come near your face and if anyone tries to pull on your private parts, I’m pretty sure you’ll kick them in the nuts.
    As for Pru, she looks TERRIFIED in that photo! What did you threaten her with to make her stay? She looks like she’s thinking, “Why don’t you ever make Gus do this stuff??”

    CatLadyLarew: I warned you! Believe me, I didn’t want to see that either when I Googled “mad cow brain,” but that’s what I got and now you all have to suffer too.

    Stephanie Barr: Maybe you have some kind of special strain of “Extra-Slow-Mad-Cow.” Because how else do you explain the nine boxes of graham crackers????

    Jenn Thorson: Maybe Wild Turkey. Red Bull just reminds me of someone who’s angry and short-tempered. That’s really not me. I forget things but in kind of a crazy manner, so perhaps Wild Turkey. I’m open to anyone’s diagnosis.

    babs – beetle: Did you resist? I’m so proud of you. Believe me, you do NOT want to click the links. The first 2 are OK, tho, I promise. I’ve never been called a “dozy cow,” but I won’t rule out dozyitus. Because I am often really sleepy. (I know that’s not how “dozy” is meant in this usage!)

    Amy: Ooh. Swine flu and Mad Cow could be pretty bad. But maybe the Mad Cow would make you so crazy and forgetful you wouldn’t even realize you felt sick. I think brown rice is a good remedy for either disease.

    Anne: Oho! Aren’t you the sly flatterer! But don’t think I won’t STILL accuse your child of having Mad Cow, just because she doesn’t buy kitchen appliances. Seriously, I’m sure your lovely daughter’s symptoms probably result from her being overly brilliant. See? Everyone’s a winner.

    Prefers Her Fantasy Life: Heh. I haven’t had a hangover in a while, so it’s a nice bit of nostalgia. It could of course be early-onset Alzheimer’s, which doesn’t sound nearly as funny as Mad Cow.

    Buggys: OK, I only know the “Denny Crane” reference because my mom is constantly nagging me to watch Boston Legal. I don’t drink, so maybe the answer is to INCREASE my cocktails? But with the Vicodin? That might really lead to some brain problems.

    dcr: Oh, my GOD! You’ve really thought this cat murder thing through, haven’t you? I’m a little skeered now. But you’re so right about our little Pru: running through our legs and trying to trip me when I go up or down stairs. Today she brought me a broken glass X-mas ornament. I think I might really be in danger here. I also think you need to write a post about cats, because your comment is seriously funny.

    Daisy the Curly Cat: That makes me feel better. Slightly-Upset Cow disease sounds like it would be easier to recover from—as long as I stay away from the cow brain sammies.

    Barb – WillThink4Wine: Oh, no, you DI’N'T! I’m still a Medium-Timer, I think. Perhaps I’m just getting little previews of impending Old-Timer-ism.

    absepa: HA! I love it when you guys have such great memories. I’ll bet you’re right! That was a giant hunk of beef, and even tho it was sooo delicious, it could’ve been packed with Mad Cow cells. (I think Matthew McConaughey was diagnosed years ago.)

    Pricilla: Wow, goats don’t sugarcoat things, do they? I prefer to think of myself as medium instead of old, but what do I know? I’m certainly not as wise as a goat. I hope the publicist at least also gets to forget unpleasant things.

    kathryn: Your diagnosis is terrifyingly accurate. Milkshake? Check. Fly swatting? Check. Nut kicking? Check. (Someone tried to give my lady parts a yank just the other day at the grocery store, and I will confess to giving them a swift kick in the goolies—HA! You never hear THAT word anymore.) As for Pru: trust me; that is her normal face. She is always on guard and suspicious. With good reason. (thank you, my special k!)

    C.B. Jones: Moo.

    Maybe it’s the fetus on your driveway. Maybe it’s growing mystical powers to mess with your mind. Maybe you’re just the start of this terror. Maybe it plans to take over the world, one curious blogger at a time, by planting itself in their driveway and slowly driving them insane…

    I would totally watch that if it were a movie.

  19. 19 Lidian

    Maybe you just need more coffee! This is my response when I do similar things around here, like forget where important pieces of paper are or keep putting soy milk on the grocery list (we have three enormous cartons now taking up valuable fridge real estate).

    As for Prudence – cats do tend to vanish when you are looking for them. Ours do, too. It’s one of their talents. Daisy, I’ll bet you and Harley can do that! It is a fun trick.

    No, I don’t think it’s Mad Cow. I think it just proves you’re either really busy, or getting old. Hey, at least it’s not overdoing the cocktails. One of Anastasia’s sisters did that last night and took a face first header on the front lawn. Not too embarrassing, it was about 4am, but still.

  23. 23 Puglette

    i don’t think you have the mad cow disease. your blender is simply hiding. it needs a break from making margaritas all summer. it is letting the coffee maker take center stage.

    buying a second pair of your favorite shoes just makes good sense to me. what if they sell out and you can never get such comfy shoes again??

    as for prudence disappearing in plain sight, well, that’s just what kitties do. i had an all black kitty that put me through hell like that on a regular basis. it is extremely difficult to spot a black kitty with it’s eyes closed in the back of your closet.

    the nudity thing? well, you’re just funny.

    and just a funny thought…last night my mom in law barbequed hamburgers for us. they were so over cooked they were crunchy. as she took her first bite she said, well at least you won’t get mad cow disease.

    take care!

    Your Daily Cute: Yeah, the blender was an easy one to miss, especially since I never use that coffeepot either. Pru? Sneaky. But, yeah, I feel kind of bad about the shoes. I literally do walk past those every day. Mad Cow. I haz it.

    Regan: Your imagination is killing me! But you could be right. Because WHERE is the fetus? It’s in my brain! And now it’s in YOURS, because you read my post. This would make a fantastic movie. “The Fetus That Overtook My Driveway and Then My Brain.” Wow.

    Lidian: Yes, Pru is good at disappearing and reappearing in the blink of an eye. THIS time, tho, I was SO SURE she was gone. And then: Oh, hai. More coffee is always a good solution. Luckily I never forget where the coffee is.

    Lola: Oh, OW! No, I may be old and busy but I can’t even stay up until 4 AM, much less taken a drunken header on anyone’s lawn! I hope she’s OK today. Just tell her she has Mad Cow.

    ann: Oh, I’ve heard of that blog. It sounds really familiar . . . where have I seen it? Gosh, it’s on the tip of my tongue . . .

    Leeuna: I’m so sorry to hear you were born with Bird Brain. I didn’t know it could be acquired this late in life. Really? Take it MORE easy? I’m already only posting like twice a week. Some of y’all post every day. I feel like I’m slacking in all the things I should be doing so you don’t have to!

    Puglette: As always, you are so sensible. I really do need a 2d pair of shoes. That pair is literally the only cold-weather pair I have, other than furry boots. And thank you for equating my nudity with funny. I guess. That black kitty of yours was messing with you big-time! Does Charlie ever do that? No, of course not. Pugs are too sweet for that kind of thing. Mmmm. Crunchy hamburgers. I’d almost rather risk Mad Cow!

    Staci at Just Bloggled: Ohhh, the sunglasses thing! YES! Other popular ones include: “Where are my keys”? “In your hand!”
    It’s no fun.

    Scrooge: Weeeeel, I don’t know about canned beefs. But I like to eat my beefs too. I hope neither of us have anything to worry about, as beefs are so delicious.

    Kathy: That’s a very convincing argument to eat meat, as long as you believe in God, of course. Either way, I’m with you. Pass the A1 and let’s not think about it all too much. (Now go on and CLICK! I know you’re dying to.)

    hi JD,
    Based on your astute medical diagnosis, I’m afraid I have Mad Cow also (well, I didn’t pose nude, but I have eaten meat and I am extremely forgetful and less-that-attentive at times).

    I am with you….not on the mas cow thing, because I don’t want to admit to any disease just yet. My forgetfulness started with my first pregnancy (almost 9 years ago) and continued on. I noticed it getting worse when I opened my pantry and saw 3 bottles of ketchup and no mustartd. I was sure I bought back-up mustard. THen I bought a new book…that I already owned, and apparently read. At least it’ll always be new to me, I guess. I’m sure I will be set for the apocolypse with all the extra food I keep buying….I just need to find that bomb shelter, I know I left it here somewhere.

  33. 33 Spot

    I’m sooo distressed after reading your blog. Seriously. It was very nice of you to get mad cow disease so that I didn’t have to, but I guess I already had it. Geez, and all this time I flatly denied it. I guess that’s the denial stage of grief. Let me explain…

    The American Red Cross will not let me give blood. I used to be a regular donor as I have the universal blood type that can be given to many others. But then this whole mad cow thing hit and they decided that since I’d resided in England from 1983 to 1987 I may have ingested infected beef and therefore be suffering from mad cow. Right after 9/11 the flatly refused to take my blood. I listened to the lady and declared hotly in my own defense that mad cow is a “wasting disease” and did I look like I was losing weight to her?! (You’ve been to my blog, you’ve seen pictures…I’m so not wasting away). But still they refused and now with these further symptoms you’ve posted…they may be right…

    I once forgot the existance of someone I’d worked with for an entire year! I also got lost in the lobby of a building, if it hadn’t been for my son I might still be there. I frequently overstock the pantry, and forget where things are. I thought that it was nature’s way of giving my kids something to laugh at, but you’ve now convinced me…I have mad cow.

    *sigh* On a good note…I simply have to start wasting away at some point, right? So why bother to diet? Hahaha.

    maureen: Yeah . . . it could be. But isn’t Mad Cow funnier? Maybe not.

    trade show displays guru: In your case, I would prescribe Red Stripe, and plenty of it. To play it safe, you might also want to get a lobotomy too, but make sure you buy your Red Stripe BEFORE the lobotomy, or you might forget.

    Puglette: Oh, your husband is SOOOO funny. Tell him we are ALL giving him the collective look. No one is immune to that!

    Bingo: Excellent explanation! I’ll just tell my husband that when I buy a whole new wardrobe even tho I have plenty of clothes. “Hey, what do you want from me? I’m a woman, and sometimes we act weird.”

    aileen barth: HAR! Ah, yes. The cupboard filled with ketchup but no mustard is always a giveaway. Now, did you READ the “new” book a second time, only to realize halfway through you’d read it already? I won’t call it Mad Cow if you won’t.

    Spot: I’m so sorry, but I have to agree: you clearly have Mad Cow. The wasting will begin any time now, so you have that to look forward to. I lived in Ireland in the mid-80s, I wonder if my blood is no good? I guess I’m not a very good citizen, as I’ve never donated. And now? I may as well forget it.

    Liz: I’m glad to give you a new excuse. Who can argue with Mad Cow? As for the sandwich . . . ummmm . . . I’m a vegetarian?

    Roschelle: Hmmmm. Have you? You’d better double-check. That’s a sure sign of Mad Cow. The other things may be written off to forgetfulness. And if 40 is old, I’m suddenly depressed.

    Jen: The “calf cannibalism” link is quite safe. It’s just a fairly dry academic site. It’s the last 2 you want to avoid. Now that I hear your boot story, I think I’m going to blame all of this on Dave messing with me. I bet he hid the blender and my shoes AND Pru just to try to drive me crazy. It wouldn’t be the first time.

    That sounds more like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than Mad Cow. Besides, Mad Cow isn’t the trendy disease to have anymore. It sort of went out with the whole Chupacabra thing. Or maybe the Macarena. One of those.

    You are probably having a hormonal brain meltdown. Or… someone is hiding your stuff (and pets), then sneaking in (when you’re not looking), putting them back in their usual spots, and running away.

    But all that still doesn’t explain almost buying a new blender… unless of course it was a Vita-Mix you almost bought, which is totally worth buying– even if you already have a blender.

    Chris@TheSnackHound: Hmph. I just did a little dance in my kitchen to the Macarena. So perhaps it figures that I would, after all, have an outdated disease like Mad Cow. Maybe? Altho the PTSD would make sense following the nude post . . .

    Walter: You may be right. Today I tried to take a nap WHILE letting my hair dry. I should’ve attempted one or the other.

    Florida Girl In Sydney: I’ve heard about those Vita-Mixes—you watch Australia’s version of “Top Chef,” don’t you? Maybe I secretly wanted a Vita-Mix and pretended not to see my old stupid useless blender.

    Not. Clicking. Links.

    And everyone needs more than one blender right? One for drinks, another for everything else that needs blending. (Although I can’t really think of anything at this particular time).

    Jay: I can’t tell you whether or not to click on the links (don’t), but I promise you won’t find anything there to confirm your own diagnosis. Maybe. I’m not giving up meat any time soon, so even if I don’t have it yet, I’m probably doomed. DOOMED!

    Daniela: Dang! I wish I’d commissioned you for a drawing. I just now thought of it . . . dang! Oh, well. I’m sure I’ll be writing another Mad Cow post, as I will have forgotten about this one. I love that lady’s outlook too. She loves her some cow. I can get behind that sentiment.

    Maureen: You know, I’ve thought of that whole “two-blender-thing,” because there’ve been times when I’ve wanted to use mine for breadcrumbs or something but it seemed wrong because that’s where I put my juice! So you’re not totally off-base.

    yes, you do have mad or crazy cow’s disease. well now you can open up a smoothie shop with your two blenders. sometimes i find things in the fridge that should be in the cabinet and things in the cabinet that should be in the fridge.

    i’m just dumb, no excuse whatsoever!

    natural: No, you’re not dumb. You just have Mad Cow. It’s all right. Those things in the cabinet will keep, unless it’s ice cream. Then you’d best start slurping.

    matthew lilly: The very fact that you are unable to see the humor in Mad Cow Disease is clear evidence that you, in fact, suffer from Mad Cow Disease.
