Hey Gang, happy Tax Day!
Posting is going to be a teensy slow this week as Lappy 6000 is finally going into the shop to have her keyboard replaced after last December’s unfortunate scorpion incident.
If you recall, an unwelcome barb-tailed beastie presented itself in my bed, scaring what can only be medically described as the bejeezus out of me and causing me to knock over a glass of water onto my laptop, an act for which several of my keyboard keys have not yet forgiven me.
After last week’s terrific conversation about feminism, I just didn’t want to plop us back down to shiny shoes and pretty clothes (although I do love shiny shoes and pretty clothes, and have some very exciting news about jeans for my long-waisted curvy sisters later this week) so I thought I’d open up today’s comments as a sort of catch-all forum for what’s been on your mind.
Recently I’ve been thinking about cravings.
I’m still convalescing from the stupid cholera (I know! That is, as my friend said, some “straight up Oregon Trail bulls**t”) that laid me low almost two weeks ago and although in an act of pure bravery I ate some very thin cauliflower soup yesterday, solid food is probably another day or two away.
Yet I am craving potato chips the way crack addicts crave, well…crack.
I tend to crave salty over sweet anyway, I have low sodium so I guess that makes sense, but potato chips –Grandma Utz’s being the superior variety– are always #1 with a kettle-fried bullet on my list of constant cravings.
Other recurring characters are:
- Seaweed Salad: probably my #3 craving after Coca Cola and potato chips
- Mexican Coca Cola: made with cane sugar, served in a freezing bottle
- Buttered Toast: Buttered before toasting, of course, with a sprinkling of (you guessed it) salt
- Utz’s Cheese Balls: the zenith of cheezy poof achievement
- Mango: I do myself a gastrointestinal disservice at least once a year gorging on delicious ripe mangoes. A dusting of curry is nice, too.
Do you have cravings, constant or otherwise? Put it –or anything else you’ve got on your beautiful mind– in the comments.
I’ll do my best to respond to any comment directed at me, so if you have a question you’d like me to answer specifically, be sure to direct it to @MissPlumcake.
