Why Beefareeno?

I promised an explanation in an earlier post, so here it is.

First, I didn't like the URL (livingbipolar.blogspot.com) that shoved me into a bipolar pigeonhole. I (obviously) have bipolar disorder, but this doesn't have to be entirely a bipolar blog. So a name change was needed.

Beefareeno is an old Seinfeld expression. Kramer had a gig driving a horse-drawn carriage through the New York Streets. He fed the horse Beefareeno, and it developed a malodorous flatulence that sent his riders running away gagging and retching. Quite appropriate for this blog, wouldn't you say?

Also, there is little in life that can't be enhanced by a Seinfeld quote. When my boys and I get together the quotes fly fast and furious. For example, Kyle gave up coffee for lent. He taped a sign to the coffee maker that said: "Kyle - No coffee for you! Next!"

There's a million quotes and references out there, but I won't go into them right now. I'm too worn out from the bout of Euromysitisis poisoning I just got over...

Oh God, I love that episode of Seinfeld. It is so funny! And doesn't he have a couple riding in the carriage, or something like that?

Yep - George's fiance's (Susan's) parents. Hilarious episode.

Do I need to change the link to you?

Sara - Nope. You don't need to do a thing differently. Thanks for visiting and asking.
