Avoidance? Me? Surely not.  
I should be working on my performance development plan. But I don't wanna! 'Tis boring - not to mention that in a new job, it's rather difficult to fill this stuff out, because hello, don't I need to develop, um, EVERYTHING? Eh. For another section, I had to put some 'hits and misses' of my past performance (i.e. here's how I suck and here's how I rule), and then put in my leadership qualities. Sadly, I didn't think that putting 'My ability to beat an underling without leaving a mark' was prudent. ;P

But onwards, for I have a question for you all, oh flist. Today for breakfast I had something I hadn't had in many, many years - most likely not since I was a very ickle Morri (so back in the Dark Ages, yes, haha). I had peanut butter and brown sugar on toast! It was nice and reminded me of when my mother would fix it for me years ago (although I couldn't finish it because it got to be a bit much on the second piece). I suppose that's not extremely strange as food things go, but it's slightly odd. So here's my question: what food from your childhood have you not had or thought of in ages that's a bit weird? What does it remind you of (person, place, something else)? Do you want to have it now, or does it sound icky?

And finally, I leave you with this list from April's Glamour magazine:

11 Things Every Woman Deserves in Life

1. A friend who takes your side and has the guts to tell you when you're wrong.
2. One item of clothing that instantly makes you feel twice as beautiful and half as nervous.
3. The occasional good cry, for no particular reason.
4. A man or woman who just cannot get enough of your body.
5. At least as much pay as the guy at the next desk who does the same job.
6. A same-size friend with an incredible closet.
7. A really hot, really fast red car. Failing that, really hot red shoes that you can run in.
8. The expensive toliet paper.
9. To sometimes lie back and take, take, take in bed.
10. A grandparent equivalent: wise, huggable, all ears.
11. A life in which you play the starring role.
I feel: peacefulwhee?

Margarine and bacon bits... wouldn't have thought of that one, I admit. And I hope you won't be insulted, but I'm not trying it. LOL Although it is rather similar to what the Brits call a bacon buttie (if I spelled that wrong, I'm sure someone will correct me), except their bacon is so much nicer than ours...

I loved a dessert of baked apples when I was a kid. It's not so strange, I guess, but it's definitely something I haven't thought about or had in a good while. It reminds me of my mom too. :)

Not terribly strange, but good for people who like apples!

*misses you!* You'd better call me before I leave...

When I was in 4th grade, I love lettuce, cheese, and pickle sandwiches. Haven't eaten them since elementary school but I did love them. :)

That sounds like you were part way to a Big Mac!

I used to sprinkle straight sugar on buttered toast as a kid. I think it started when me and my sister were hungry, wanted cinnamon toast, but had no cinnamon. I don't think that I could get it down today - talk about sickeningly sweet!

Similar to my peanut butter and brown sugar, but definitely sweeter. It's funny because I do have a sweet tooth, no question, but if things are too sweet, I'm just like BLECH...

Rice with butter and sugar. Mmmm. Haven't had it in years. Now I want some! May make some tonight...
Vicki: Mmm...hermorrine on April 13th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
See, now that's almost rice pudding, really. Just add some milk and you're there!

#10 is scary, because a grandparent's ears can be hairy, and if they were ALL ears? OMFG.

My grandmother used to give me saltines with jelly on them. I have no idea if it would be good now, but I loved it then.
Vicki: Drake hair OMGhermorrine on April 13th, 2007 09:48 pm (UTC)
I seem to recall putting margarine on saltines, which I definitely wouldn't do now, because ick.
