Big Gay Vince, bastard, Southpark me


Couldn't decide this morning what to make for dinner. I was considering baking chicken breasts somehow but instead took some thighs out of the freezer and made chicken-veggie-noodle soup. Usually I use wide egg noodles but I went with cute pasta stars instead. :o) Not a drop was left over.

bug bigotry

"Did you ever notice we have bug predjudice? Why is it that we'll touch or catch certain bugs and play with them, but others we'll go out of our way to avoid or stomp on because they skeeve you out? I mean after all, bugs are bugs. I like caterpillars, yet those icky thousand leggers that you catch darting across your wall on occasion will make you jump sky high and then not sleep if you know it's still lurking about your room. Lady bugs, lightning bugs, we like them. Spiders, ants, beetles, we think they're icky and gross." - from Pizza Dreams

Indeed, there is a big double standard and I'm highly guilty of it. Spiders, ants, flies, and cockroaches warrant death upon first sight -- unless it's a reeeeeally big spider in which case I run around in circles screaming like a little grrrl... then I eventually go get the bug spray which I fire from 6 feet away. :oP Yet ladybugs, caterpillars and butterflies I try to coax unto my hand and then watch them crawl all over myself.
