    What WERE those things?

  4. Posted December 30, 2011 at 1:00 am |

    I was making toast the other day and I noticed that the bread had a little spot of mold on the top. I was about to throw it away when I suddenly remembered a former Auschwitz inmate commenting on the pictures of what’s left of it today, “There was no grass between the buildings back then. If there was, we would have eaten it”.

    So I cut-off the moldy part and made me some toast. It tasted good. There are, however, some things in my fridge that will definitely go to the dump, as soon as I get around to it (don’t hold your breath on that one… on second thought: DO hold your breath!)

    I suspect Nancy Pelosi is stale and moldy by now. I’d be happy to toss that out. :)

    PatrickP: It’s been around so long, I’m actually starting to grow fond of it. I need help. I know that now.

    Please help me.

    When my food has more hair than I do it has pissed me off and it gets thrown in the trash.

    I know, I need help with sentence structure.

    Reminds me of the 2 zuchinnis I found waaaay in the back of our fridge… they bled out a long time ago so even the bloodtrail had spots like those. Good thing I found them before oldest daughter came for Christmas!

    Oh, I am not the only one who finds science experiments in her fridge! What a relief!
    I performed the ‘fridge douche the week before Christmas and found a bag of molten celery that had fallen back behind a drawer with a couple of limes that seem to have fossilized!

    Patrick, they were at the bottom/back of the “bread/carb” tray. I’ve been eating chocolate instead.
    This was so bad I actually just tossed them….didn’t even wash out and reuse the zippy bags.
    I even found a couple bread stix from when we went to Victoria. In June.

    Aw, don’t throw it out, couple more days and it’ll crawl out on its own…

    I only found it because I ran out of chocolate.

    Ok, it’s official, you need help.

    All zippy bag wash & reusers need help.

    Personally, I never wash mine before reuse: waste of time and water.

    Plus, I’m saving the environment, so no water waste.

    I only found it because I ran out of chocolate.

    See? This is a cry for help. Somebody send her some chocolate.

    I bought a loaf of sweet french bread on the way home the other week, and the stuff (locally made) had such a high water content that it didn’t last 3 days before turning into a science experiment. I went back and complained, the baker apologized and said they’d had a few batches like that, I wasn’t the only one. “New guy” he explained, and handed me 2 loaves, gratis.

    Sometimes it does pay to complain.

    We found two zucchinis from last spring in the back of the vegie bin. They put up a hell of a fight, but iI finally got them out.

    At work, our Chief used to say, just before a long weekend, “OK, everybody get their science experiments out of the refrigerator”.

    Bread freezes really well, and keeps for almost ever that way. This is great if you like toast, not so great if you don’t.

    French bread (the real kind) doesn’t keep because they forget to put the preservatives in it. And you’re really supposed to eat French bread right away, right out of the oven, with a little butter and a cup of dark coffee at a table on the sidewalk outside a little French bistro within sight of Notre Dame.

    Everybody should know something! The reason they put shelves on the doors of reefers refrigerators is to store the crap you plan to use but never fucking do……………………………………………………..Geeeshhhhh!!!

    You could have used them as bait to trap squirrels!

    This morning I shoved all the Christmas cookies down the insinkerator. It was that or buy new pants.

  30. Posted December 30, 2011 at 2:30 pm |

    I re-use the zippy bags to put cat poop in. How the hell they manage to turn 1lb. of cat food into 3 lbs. of cat shit is beyond my comprehension of physics, but then, I think I got a “D” in that class anyway.

    Hog, the extra weight is fucking cat hairs that they lick-groom constantly. The hairs not used for shit are simply barfed onto a suitable spot; usually, normally, almost always on the top $$$$$ carpet, imported rug or in the same room where your guests are having cocktails prior to dinner…….(…the shy cats tend to puke under the master bed….)

    Dead mousies in your bedroom slippers. One of my Mom’s cats always tucked presents in there.

    Were those the last of the Christmas Carbs?

    from last year?

    Is it just me, or did all of your rotten, slimy, fetid, moldy and putrid produce mutate into OWS and other forms of Dem voters?

    I can live with that as long as they don’t do it in my sock drawer.

    Did somebody just say, “Let’s all have a contest to see who has the oldest thing in their refrigerator”?

    To which, I humbly submit…

    Photobucket

    June, 2002. Left over from our wedding reception. I would have tossed it years ago, but there’s something to be said about ‘sentimental value’ that is probably better left unsaid. Or unsmelt. I just took it out for a minute and the stank is still strong!
