This Is Getting Ridiculous
I ate a homemade cinnamon bun and a piece of store-bought chocolate cake today. And I feel like one of the guys in Knocked Up -- I laughed heartily through the whole of today's matinee -- after spending the whole day with my lips glued to a bong. Come to think of it, I'd probably be processing this sugar a lot more efficiently if I had been indulging in the latter vice.

You went, too? At Foothills? We saw the 11am show. Then went Frankie's Cheesesteaks, then to see Air Guitar Nation, which was also pretty adorable, in a different way.

I can't believe we forgot to get high. Hah.

I can get high on a cheesesteak. Except we always called them steak sandwiches.

Oh, and 2pm. We had a blast. The gynecologist scenes were especially awesome.

have your cake and eat it

meh.

it's your european heritage. northern europeans and scandies are mad for the cake. i used to have a boyfriend who was first generation english, but had norwegian roots. he taught me how to eat fish off the bone, which is a useful skill if you tend to bolt your food, like me. i learned that the norwegian for carrot is goldroot, which is rather romanticising the otherwise pedestrian root. but best of all, his mother gave me cakegrippers, which were a fancy tong thing for handling cake without fingers. actually i used them for turning bacon. but i did like them.

Re: have your cake and eat it

I like bacon too! How is your head holding up? Mine is presently suffering from excess of Nordic heritage. . . :-)

Re: north sea grey...

i have been a bit bonkers lately due to being given psyche drugs for migraine and not being supervised. i currently have my mum looking after me, and can thoroughly reccommend the taking of the mum into dr's surgeries etc.

Re: north sea grey...

I bet. That migraine medication can have strange effects, or so others have told me. Nice to hear from you, at any rate!

Re: have your cake and eat it

Wait. You call it "bacon"? What does that word connote over there? I may have been confused by Irish terminology.

Re: have your cake and eat it

well, like the kind of smoked ham that you then either fry or grill, coming in the usa, i think, mainly as what we would call 'streaky'. mostly we have back bacon here, like this...

Re: have your cake and eat it

Thicker than ours, but recognizable to us as "bacon."

Re: irish terminology

my boyfriend is irish, and he calls bacon just 'rashers'

Re: irish terminology

Ahh. That's it. I had mistakenly thought that what we call "bacon" here was called "rashers" in the UK as well.
