Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (Random like the plague)

A telemarketer just called and asked for my dad, and when I said he wasn't home she assumed I was my mum.
I know it's the polite thing to do but it was weird.

Re: Food pr0n (picture-heavy)

My brother's fiancee's mum (also my ex's mum.. venturing down that path was bad idea) works in a cake shop. For a birthday once she brought what i can only describe as an almond cream-gasm cake. It consisted of thin layers of crispy biscuit-y pastry stuff, with this absolutely delectable nutty cream...

Re: Fruits and Veggies: Where to go from here?

If you have leftover steamed/grilled veggies (cauliflower, broc, carrots, beans, potato etc.) a good way to use them up for lunch the next day is: 1. Mash together 2. Dip in some egg and breadcrumbs, if you're feeling fancy 2. Fry. Mmmmm. Usually needs some sort of sauce but half the time some sauce...

A knife and my hand suffices, methinks.

But I do have one of those oldschool torture device-esque juicers around somewhere.

Re: Really good ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING food

Pizza Shapes with Nutella. Popcorn with melted butter, icing sugar and salt. Absolute flavourgasm. Also, peanut butter, Milo (a grainy, malty, chocolatey milk flavoury thing) and a bit of milk, in the microwave so it goes all melty and delicious. Basically any combination of chocolate, salt and carb...

Re: Vegemite. Basically the best spread ever.

When I was little, I used to eat Weet-Bix with margarine and Vegemite. I'm not sure why. I tried it again recently and it tasted okay but the resulting feeling was like spraying inside my mouth with Rexona. Bleurgh. What are everyone's opinions on Cheesybite? The first time I heard 'iSnack 2.0' I de...

Re: Nowhere

My organic chemisty lecturer once told us a joke about this. Yes, during the lecture. He asked, "How do you masturbate a dinosaur?" Then he put his arms above his head and ran from side to side. We had some awesome lectures in organic chemistry. Out of interest, which uni? ..Cause, you kn...

Yep, I cut the tops off and keep stationery in them. Resourceful, or possibly just a little weird. Either way, they're handy and I like to think it's good eco-karma.

Re: What makes wet tshirts see-through?

I have a theory that's basically the opposite of probably-not-Bill Nye. Imagine a paintbrush, or a feather duster, if you will. The bristles are all fanned out and fluffy, right? Now put this imaginary brush/duster underwater. Still fluffy, yes? But when you take it out, the bristles/feathers stick ...

I could live in a box if it meant I don't have to travel an hour on public transport to get anywhere interesting.

Would you rather be a tax accountant for the rest of your life, or discover the secret of the universe next week then die before you could tell anyone?

Re: What kind of voice do you hear in your head when you read?

I have never read books with a voice in my head. Sometimes when I come across a new word I might say it to myself, in my head, but that's about the extent of it. Characters rarely have their own 'voices' for me. However, I just realised that when I'm talking to a friend on IM, I sometimes hear the w...

Re: Books that made you cry

I don't remember exactly what it was at the time, but when I read Jessica by Bryce Courtenay a few years ago it just seemed like the most desperately tragic story. I spent a good bit of it sobbing. It really messed me up for a good few days. I'm also a total sucker for books like The Horse Whisperer...
