I don't really like eating stone fruits either! Like, biting into a peach or something doesn't feel like real eating! I don't know where this came from--I used to worship apricots, nectarines, and plums. I don't mind them in stuff, but I've apparently lost the human urge to eat a fruit like our ancestors did, and that bothers me.

I have no problems shoving berries into my mouth, and I'll happily eat a garden tomato like an apple! So I'm not totally broken.

I pretty much don't like any fruit in whole/solid form apart from apples. I can drink fruit juices and sometimes fruit in stuff like pies, but I have issues with textures and just can't bring myself to eat them raw or in most cooked forms. Even with apples, they have to be sliced.

I absolutely hate the texture of bananas. I like the taste, and I'll gladly scarf down banana bread or banana chips, but the thought of eating a plain banana is gross to me. I'm intrigued by those chocolate-covered frozen banana slices, but not enough to buy a box.

I go to great lengths to avoid one of my coworkers. He's really nice, but he doesn't have anything to say that isn't small talk. I won't go into a rant about how much I hate small talk, but I will say that I really really hate it. I will walk around the entire building just to avoid passing him.

There are like three different things he says, all of them in the exact same tone and cadence. There has to be a point mid-day Wednesday, where he officially switches from "How was your weekend?" to "Got big plans this weekend?" I never know how to answer, because I feel like "fine, thanks, and you?" just encourages him to keep up the "I say this, then you say that" thing, like we're reciting our lines. (Okay, maybe I'm going into my rant a little bit) So I usually try to come up with something real to say, in an attempt to engage him in conversation, but he clearly doesn't want to have a real conversation, and will always steer it back to those few canned statements/questions.

I feel bad because he really is super nice, but I would rather feel bad than get stuck trying to think of how to respond to his repertoire of small talk in real and meaningful ways.

I say you just slowly ramp up your weekend "plans" to see how he react.

"Did you have a good weekend?"
"Oh yeah, my friends and I just raised Yog-Sosoth and all, it was pretty cool."

I just ate an entire block of tofu made into scramble mixed together with a whole pack of tofurky andouille sausage in breakfast burrito form.

My day is pretty well planned out now. A whole lot of laying down.

I was semi-hovering over a public toilet today cos the seat was gross, and somehow managed to pee all over my underwear. I didn't realise til I pulled them up and they felt oddly warm. Even though I was by myself, I think I was blushing with embarrassment (so now of course the logical thing to do is share with the internet). And then I just laughed out loud to myself and who knows what passers-by thought of me.

Luckily I was across the road from a Target and had enough cash to buy a new pair as I wasn't going home anytime soon and had to be at work and was wearing fairly low-riding skinny jeans.

I made two perfectly delicious and wonderful salads this evening, but ate EB mac n cheese for dinner.

I guess the green stuff can wait until tomorrow.

I lied to my four-year-old about the leftover chana masala and samosa because I wanted to eat it all after he went to bed.

This gave me a much needed chuckle. Thank you. Enjoy that tasty goodness!

I keep making up reasons for one measly task I keep forgetting to do at work but the truth is I just have been instantly forgetting it whenever my boss asks me for it. I get so many emails at work sometimes it takes me my entire day to work through them and though I have some semblance of a to-do list, the truth is I am really disorganized.

i not once but twice yesterday was nasty and rude to a translation agency that is hunting me rather aggressively but requires that I give them all sorts of personal data for payment (i want to give my paypal period).
except it turns out i mixed up my agencies and was rude to the nice one that was also hunting me. They both have hip new names, in my defense, but oh i feel stupid.

That's awesome. One of the many reasons I don't want to be a parent is because I don't like sharing food. Kids gotta be all up in everything all the time. Good for you standing your ground!

I'm not a big fan fall squashes. Butternut, spaghetti, acorn, winter. I never know what to do with them so I try throw them in a dish and never care for the taste. I hate roasting and peeling them. Pumpkin is fine but I usually buy it canned because I hate roasting, peeling, and/or boiling it. I don't like cranberries. I've always hated cranberry juice.
