Roadkill

Taking a road trip through the dead center of summer across the hot blank Interstate and your best friend next to you at the wheel...

Place one Sugardaddy sucker on the dashboard.
Put up your feet, and watch the day pass by like the mirages on the horizon that slip through the heavy heat.
Several hours later unwrap the soft sticky taffy and chew, slowly.

The Omnivore’s Hundred

Here is a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there. Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food - but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if you don’t recognize everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here’s what I want you to do:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

[ mood | lonely ]

margaret atwood reads like the crazy woman talking to herself behind me on the streetcar, if you come to visit me bring a piece of a plant for my teacup, just because you know one thing about me that no one else does does not mean you know me at all, objects gain value by organization- time and location, my place is tidy because i am constantly making large messes that require being cleaned up- other stuff gets clean in the process, one's greatest impediment is because they designate it so, -it's not about liking myself and building my self-esteem but getting over myself- "don't believe in yourself, don't deceive with belief, knowledge comes with death's release, oohwhoo , whoohoo, yeah" -David Bowie

Grilled Cheese with Childlike

Ingredients:
*about 8 bucks
*some ADD

Order a grilled cheese sandwich with fries for takeout from Swiss Chalet. Carry it home through the cold snow.
Open your complimentary toy, eat the included skittles; lining them up by colour. Play around just long enough for the grilled cheese to get a little soggy from the french fries steaming underneath.
Open your little plastic box and eat the sandwich triangles, dipped in your favourite sauce.
