[Error: unknown template qotd]This here picture I took back when I had delusions of going to culinary school.

Veggie spaghetti with spirals instead of angel hair. Made with my tomato sauce and a good handful of frozen spinach, some chickpeas, diced zucchini or eggplant, whatever is on hand.

NOM pancakes. I love to make a buttermilk pancake sandwich with sausage or bacon and a fried egg over easy, butter and maple syrup.

Or, ohhhhh, my mom makes this stuff I call Mexican lasagna, with layers of crepes and refried beans and ground beef and cheese and spicy tomato sauce and sour cream. OH GOD SO HUNGRY NOW.

Crepes with nutella and sliced bananas and/or strawberries.

Crepes with sweetened cream cheese and fruit, or chocolate chips.

Pay off all my existing debt, give 10k to my parents to help them out, and each of my siblings for college, and then move to Atlanta and go to The Art Institute and finish my culinary degree.

Eh, whatever was left over, I guess I'd save.

Family Matters.  Steve Urkell.  Yussss.  We still crack each other up doing Steve impersonations.  Also dealt with some serious issues, like racism.  I remember the episode where Laura tried to get her school to offer a Black History class, and someone spray painted her lock with "If you want black history, go back to Africa".  Made me cry.

Well, it was my favorite at least until the end of the series, when Steve became Stefan and suddenly Laura was into him.  What.  Even as a kid that pissed me off.  Other than that I also liked Full House, mostly because of Jesse.  He may have been my first crush, now that I think about it.

I suppose my choice to be child free is a holdover from my ew-boys-have-cooties phase.  It was something I was simply never interested in.  My family still thinks it's just a phase.  24 1/2 years is a pretty long damn phase.  Now that I'm older and I've really thought about it, I know that there's always the possibilty that when I'm 45 or whenever I might feel like I need to be a mother in order to feel fulfilled, and if that happens I'll adopt someone.  Pregnancy is something I'm never doing, ever.  It's horrific.  Two words: vaginal tearing.  Uh uh, nope, I like my cooch just the way it is, thank you.  Not to mention incontinence and hemorroids, and the fact that you have a freaking person growing in your body.  That thought has never given me the warm fuzzies the way it does to every other woman.  Just...no.

Most unusual...let's see.  I've tried frog legs (and they really do taste a lot like chicken).  Cow tongue (tastes like pork, but with a really smooth texture, like fat).  Escargot (which tastes like clams).  Conch (which is a giant sea slug, and it tastes like clams too, but a little more salty). 

I used to love hot and sour soup at Chinese buffet restaurants, but I went to a different restaurant than usual and they used whole earthworms in their soup...at my usual place they julienned the worms.  Eeuuugh.  I didn't get sick though, and when I feel braver I will probably start eating the soup again.  But that was just a huge shock to find a worm in my bowl of soup.  And it was one of those big nightcrawlers, too, not a little old garden worm.

Easy Bake Oven, for obvious reasons.  Wish I still had it.  I'm pretty sure they're still being manufactured, though.  It would be pretty cool to get another one and see what kinds of things I could make in it.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Oh god...!  However do I pick just one?!

It's not that difficult.  Hands down The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.  That has to be the best fantasy book I've ever read.  Period.  Of course after I hit post I'll think of something else and second guess myself. 

But the more I think of it, the more sure I am.  It has all the best story elements: Action enough to keep it from being boring, a fantastic protagonist, fantastic secondary characters, and all of them well-fleshed out, believable human beings who make us smile, and make mistakes and (sometimes) learn from them.  The right balance of detail and worldbuilding without making the book a slog, a great magic system...Pat just got it all right.  And in his first book, too.

Can't wait for book 2!

[Error: unknown template qotd]However did I miss this one?

I would have to ask Toby why he is fixated on running water.  He refuses to drink standing water unless I've been gone for hours and he's desperate.  Whenever he wants a drink he jumps on the bathroom counter and meows at me until I turn on the tap.  You're a damn cat, for crying out loud!  You lick your own ass!  Drink out of your bowl, you twit!

I would ask Oz, you do realize you have been declawed, right?  So why do you continue attempting to claw my furniture, you silly thing?

I would ask Olive to please stop using my stomach as a spring board when she feels like attacking one of the other cats.  That's not a pleasant way to wake up in the middle of the night.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Duh, yeah!  Since I get off work most nights close to midnight I totally rock my jammies.  XD

[Error: unknown template qotd]I hate the whole chocolate orgy (not because I hate chocolate).  It's a fucking useless holiday.  You don't get school or work off.  It's just some idiot gimmick; what the hell is so special about an oversized teddy bear and red roses and chocolates?  Not even good chocolate, but that Russell Stover shit.

Am I bitter?  Probably, yes, if I dwell on it.  But I also hate how commercial Halloween, Christmas and Easter have become, so how else am I supposed to feel about a holiday that doesn't celebrate anything real, and is nothing but an excuse to get people to spend money?
