I just had a sudden random craving for biscuits and gravy. Mmm... I might have to investigate some of the cookbooks.

That white bean based gravy, I think in vwav, is so freaking amazing.

Never ever ever working in a customer service job again if I can avoid it. I am blown away by how many people think it is okay to put their hands on me or tug on my clothing to get my attention if I am wearing a staff shirt and badge. Too bad it would be considered rude to say "hey, could you NOT forking touch me?" Ugh.

I really hope the tomatoes and peppers and chilis and zucchini survive. I re-potted them yesterday from my sheltered balcony to the outside yard, and of course today it's windy and cold. So many leaves and branches have broken already! Please stop wind! They are not used to it!

In unrelated news, I made a rice pudding dish this afternoon completely making up the recipe as I went. It came out really well, but so filling! It was half a cup of uncooked rice for two people and we had trouble finishing it. I am so used at cooking following recipes that it was really weird not doing it and still having a good result.

Ugh, that is so weird. Why would people think it's okay touch you?

Also, I walked in on a strange old dude mid-stream in the bathroom today...I always thought a half-open door meant the single-occupant bathroom is unoccupied...evidently I was wrong.

I have to wait for my kitchen experiment to cool completely before cutting into it, and it's already been cooling over an hour but it's still warm and I want to try it nooooooooooooow.

I don't even need to know what your experiment is to want to try it. Please post pics.

The best thing about spending the weekend with my bff is that I can be totally disgusting (belching, cracking asparagus) and laugh about it because we met when we were 10. It's so relaxing to be able to act like a child.

Someone (apologies for not recalling who, it was several pages back) was saying they found it hard to drink plain water - have you tried putting a slice of cucumber in? I find it strangely effective. Fizzy water is meant to be bad for your bones isn't it?

Yeah, fizzy water is supposed to be bad. Phophoric acid. So sad.

I am contemplating the creation of a coffee cake, but I loaned my best coffee cake containing cookbook to a neighbor who is away. What shall I do?

Hey you know that thing of when somehow half of the red onion slices in your salad migrate to the bottom of the bowl and so when you've got a few bite left, it's a scrap or two of lettuce, some dressing, and a whole buttload of red onion? And then since you've been trained all your life to clear your plate, you attempt to eat it anyway? No? Well let me tell you, I have a critical level of onion breath and heartburn and oh my god, not worth it.

I dropped my phone in a giant bowl of hummus earlier. I'm pretty sure I achieved the next level of veganism or something.

It depends, did you clean it by licking all the hummus off?

Frankly, you're not even an entry-level vegan if you didn't.

Fairly positive it's an old wive's tale:
Wikipedia wrote:
Sparkling mineral waters showed slightly greater dissolution than still waters, but levels remained low and were of the order of one hundred times less than the comparator soft drinks. De-gassing of a sparkling mineral water reduced its dissolution, but the total levels were still relatively low suggesting that carbonation of drinks may not be an important factor per se in respect of erosive potential. ... Thus, mineral waters appear to offer a safe alternative to more erosive acidic beverages[11]

Intake of carbonated beverages has not been associated with increased bone fracture risk in observational studies, and the net effect of carbonated beverage constituents on the amount of calcium in the body is negligible.[12] Carbonated water eases the symptoms of indigestion (dyspepsia) and constipation, according to a study in the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.[13]
A 2004 article in the Journal of Nutrition found that fizzy waters with higher sodium levels reduced cholesterol levels and the risk of cardiovascular problems in postmenopausal women.[14]

It's the phosphoric acid in soda that is bad for your bones, but not every fizzy drink has it. I think it's mostly in colas.

Someone I know went to fill her prescription for migraine tablets and the pharmacist dispensed viagra by accident. Very funny. She would have kept them if she hadn't been so desperate for the migraine tablets.

I am irrationally annoyed by the Chocolate Covered Katie blog. Dessert shouldn't be health food. And the usage of words like "healthy" and "clean" all over the place in relation to food smack of disordered eating (not saying anything about her, just about the recipes). I'm not sure why it's so popular.

My mom is on vacation with her friend in Florida and has been giving me daily updates. These are the highlights:

The outdoor pool at their hotel has speakers that are constantly playing sounds of birds angrily screeching. When my mom asked what was up with that, she was told that "it keeps the birds from nesting in our trees". After she was told that, she saw several people getting dive-bombed and pecked in the head by birds, so apparently the recording doesn't work too well.

A strange man sat down next to my mom's friend, and when he stood up, his pants fell down!

My mom and her friend were eating at a waterside restaurant, and a cockroach started scurrying around their feet. Their waitress completely panicked and called over a waiter. The waiter looked and said "Oh, that's just a palmetto bug." My mom replied, "We call those cockroaches in Boston." (Also! My mom told me it didn't bother her at all, because she used to work in a hospital that was swarming with cockroaches. Um, what??)

My mom was shocked to find that her friend "has no gaydar", and my mom was going to try to teach her. I'm sure that went well.

And there was some adventure where they lied to a driver of a car and told him that they were going to a fancy restaurant, because they were embarrassed to say that they were going to a cheap cafe near the fancy restaurant. But then when they got to the fancy place, the driver got out and walked them inside (??) and so they had to go to the bar and buy drinks. And they asked him to come back and pick them up at a certain time, so they had to sneak back into the fancy restaurant and walk out through the front door, so the driver would think they had eaten there.
