In a pickle. My goodness I misuse puns.

I wanted to first say “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!” to my mother. I would tell her in person but she is Canada right now. I am going to cook dinner for her on Sunday even though I have no idea what I’m going to cook. I have a school deadline today and then it will be a LITTLE more relaxed until November when I graduate. I have to give a 30 minute lecture while I’m there and what I really need to do is make my family listen to it at some point this weekend. I need to go over it and over it before I go because I’ve never given a lecture before and I’m going to be kind of nervous. Anyway, I am jumping ahead I guess because I really wish it were Saturday and I was relaxing, watching the Bama game. I am kind of glad the next two weeks are away games so I can actually rest on a Saturday.
So, I wouldn’t consider myself a picky eater but there are certain things that I just don’t eat. I don’t like pickles, ANY kind of pea, ANY kind of bean (except for green beans), celery, coleslaw, cilantro, peaches (or anything peach flavored) and bananas. I also don’t care for Indian food or sushi. I know...people always say that I’m not trying the right thing or that I would like their favorite foods. Let me just say this...I have tried Indian food and sushi several times and I really just flat out don’t like it. Indian makes me sick. There is something in the spice of their food that I just literally can’t stomach. When it comes to sushi...oh my goodness. It tastes exactly like what you would think...raw fish. I’m not big on fish anyway unless it’s shrimp, lobster or fried so the potent fishy taste is NOT really my thing at all. Those are pretty much the only things I just won’t eat. I could have missed something but I think it’s a pretty thorough list. I would say that pickles are the most offensive thing to me. I don’t care if they are in a salad or there is a spear on my plate...after that...everything tastes like pickles. I think that putting pickles on a sandwich shouldn’t be standard. You should have to request pickles because it is far more offensive to HAVE pickles on something when you don’t like them then for the person who ACTUALLY likes the nasty things to add them to whatever they are eating. My mother says there is a pickle conspiracy in the world and I believe that because it seems like every time I turn around, pickles become standard on something else. Anyway, because I don’t eat some of those things, there are healthy foods that I’m missing which means my variety is lowered. So, I was going to put it out there that if anyone has any interesting veggies or fruits I might like, new brands of food I can get at the grocery store or recipes they would ever like to share...I would love to hear them. I am always looking for new things I can eat. I love to cook but I don’t cook at my house much because that involves going up stairs and despite my weight loss quest...I still HATE stairs. I know that’s lazy but it’s just how it is.
As much as I LOVE my brother and dog Pacey...I can’t WAIT for my parents to be back. I miss them first and I’m sure they have a souvenir for me and they are just so much better at dealing with the day to day crap of their house. There is so much responsibility and now that my brother is 15, he isn’t home a lot and my Dad is out of town a lot for work so I really don’t know how my Mom does it every day...especially without sticking her thumbs into Dixie’s jugular...too violent? If you think it’s too violent I dare you to spend one night with that horrifically noisy dog. I will stop complaining about her now since I devoted a whole blog to it yesterday. The point is....COME HOME NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to live with people that don’t need to be fed everyday and people that don’t need money all the time and ask me if they can go places!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I'm on board with the whole pickle conspiracy too! They are so disgusting, and they do seem to be EVERYWHERE. Ugh!

    I'm also ready for your parents to be back, but that's because I miss you! I miss sitting on our couch (which will be replaced soon!!!) and chillin' and whatnot. :(

  2. For the record- I can jump on the I miss your mommy bandwagon for a lot of reasons that I can't say because of this whole privacy policy issue, because she is moral support and I just miss her company. On the other hand- she really deserves time to play. I bet she misses us too! Tammy- Your Heathers want you home! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! STAY AWAY FROM THE BALCONIES!
