Of Shoes and Ships and Sealing Wax...
So I ask the crowd on IRC tonight what I should write about in my LJ post. And I get the distinct feeling that they're hungry or something.

"Potatoes" said one. "Wheat Thins" said another. "Sunflower seeds" was the third food item suggested by someone else.

I like potatoes. When I order baked potatoes, however, I have to be careful not to put too much butter/margarine on 'em. I can go WAY overboard if I'm not careful. I've discovered that if I salt them a bit, I can eat them with less butter/margarine. Usually I'm not big on the salt on my taters thing. Not big on salt, period. Give me potato chips and I usually brush the salt off. Likewise with French fries. And PLEASE don't give me coated fries or those horrid monstrosities that Burger King calls fried potatoes.

When I think of Wheat Thins I think of Sandy Duncan, who was once their spokesperson. And when I think of her, I think of The Cat from Outer Space. Then I think of Ken Berry and then Kinney Shoes (he danced in some of their commercials - or at least, I remember him doing so). And then I get confused because I wonder why I'm eating Wheat Thins and thinking about shoes...

Sunflower seeds are a wonderful addition to any salad. And once you rub the salt off of 'em, they're great for munching on their own. Yeah, me and the salt thing. I even rub salt off of my cashews. And I often rub the salt onto my jeans afterwards, to clean my hand off for the next batch of salted food items that I wish were unsalted. Why not simply buy unsalted? Well, in potato chips, that's rare to find. I do buy unsalted sunflower seeds and nuts, but sometimes I'm eating things purchased by others. Or the salted stuff was on sale but the unsalted was not. (And what's up with that???)

The folks on IRC got to talking about other things as well, but I thought those three items would be more than enough to fill up a post. And I was right, too!

Sunflower seeds are Mathematic-Geek super snacks. Who can resist a snack based on the Fibonacci sequence?

If I have my rathers, I prefer Pistachios over sunflower seeds.

You salt-heathen. How dare you waste such a heavenly substance?


(so says the person who would be truely happy in life if only she had a personal salt lick.)

Put all of your salt into a letter, and when it gets heavy enough, post it to me. Mmm. Salt. I'm more prone to rubbing the sunflower seeds off the salt :P

What is your view on chicken salt?

Need your address first. ;-) (Actually, if you e-mail me your addy, I can send you a few of my duplicate Sylv pix. Of course, if you'd prefer not to have some sad wanker from the US have your address, I understand too. Heh!)

As for chicken salt... Um, what is it? Is it made from chickens? For chickens? By chickens?

You've made me hungry! :D

How's school going?

School's going well... First chemistry and first physics test today and tomorrow. What I've graded so far is looking good, but those were just some of the chemistry. I'll be interested to see how physics does on their first test.
