Re: Childhood misconceptions

Enid Blyton -> Grid Bligton I used to boast my mad reading skills by deciphering the "nitrogen facts" on the back of the school milk cartons at lunch in first grade. When I was about 3, I remember my mom telling me that before she had me, our dogs were like her children. I interpreted this...

Re: Omegle!

The boring people are fun to mess with. Other than being generally silly, I've had one decent conversation so far. It was with a couple in their early thirties that kept switching off talking to me, so it was very confusing. They seemed like nice people though, and I think I cam away with a tad more...

Re: Twilight?

While it's uproariously entertaining to make fun of the movie, especially while all the fans are on the edge of their seats nearing tears, I do understand Rat's point. I went to Twilight when it came out in theaters because my sister asked me to take her. I was in hysterics for the entire movie (it ...

Re: 1984 (Or Nineteen Eighty-Four)

I loved the book. The extent to which the Party controls the language and memories of the population was particularly interesting. The proles, and their fake lotteries and Party-composed tunes, are also thought provoking ("hope lies in the proles.") I received a box of Victory Candy from m...

Re: Quick, Tasty, Cheap: Breakfasts?

Put a Foreman grill in your room and lay several strips of bacon across it. Set your alarm to go off 15 minutes before you normally wake up, and when it does, plug in the Foreman. Wake up 15 minutes later to the smell of fresh-cooked bacon! Just to clarify, I believe that is a quote from Michael on...

Re: Strange eating habits

I really dislike it when I run out of a particular food on my plate, so I make sure I alternate between foods to keep a constant ratio of each. This is particularly evident when I eat at my favorite sushi place. I always get the same thing, and always in the same order. 2 california rolls for every ...

Re: Mailing Baked Goods

Steer clear of the shortening, I find it impacts the taste, not nearly as tasty, plus even worse for you than butter. Gingerbread sounds like a good choice, being a hard cookie.

P.S. I'd like to strongly register a complaint against the romanticizing of vampires. Vampires are murderous creatures that drink blood.

Since you're vegetarian, you can get protein from certain grains: i.e. wheat, rye, barley. Rice + beans also provide the necessary amino acids. At least you're not vegan! I could not ...

Re: Started dating a veggie-- HALP!

Quinoa. Great stuff, you can dress it up with any number of ingredients (leeks being my personal favorite). Only thing is, you have to make sure to make it with water, opposed to chicken broth.
And I agree with your girlfriend- the slaughterhouses sicken me. It's nice that you want to cook for her.
