Five things I thought of just lying here in bed

Postby Minnie the Minx » 02 Feb 2017, 03:34

Given the choice, would you rather lick the bowl that had had cake mix in it, or mashed potato?

Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill?

In the unlikely scenario of someone ordering you to eat a part of your own body, which bit would you choose, why, and how would you cook it?

What's a reasonable time to stay and sit reading in a cafe when you have finished your tea/coffee whatever and you don't plan on buying anything else?

One of life's greatest mysteries, is who decided that cake is better than cake mix? So put me in the first camp, I've never licked the bowl (euphemism alert) of mashed potato. Of course, you could be comparing licking the bowl (is it getting hot in here?), with the dance the mashed potato. In which case, I'm still licking the bowl.

Potato

does not apply

My fingernail clippings. Raw.

For sleeping, 8. For lying in when awake 3. On the whole, I'd rather be vertical

The cake mix. Though I made some mash the other day with salad cream. Delicious.



Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill?

No. But I always think it's a shame when I do see dead things in the road.



In the unlikely scenario of someone ordering you to eat a part of your own body, which bit would you choose, why, and how would you cook it?

Well, I would follow Armin Meiwes's lead and flambé my JT in some garlic butter. A large portion. Enough for two etc etc
Or perhaps just a bit of thigh.




What's a reasonable time to stay and sit reading in a cafe when you have finished your tea/coffee whatever and you don't plan on buying anything else?

It depends if it's busy and someone else needs a seat. 10 minutes seems reasonable, but I sometimes see folks in there for ages, mucking about on computers etc

About a 9 on a 10 scale. If it's a good bed. If the company's good it might rate a 10 or 11.

Cake mix. Absolutely no contest.

Of course. Living in Devon, unfortunately, means that roadkill is plentiful. There's often a pheasant or a fox on our village bypass. Currently, it's a badger. :(

I guess about 20 minutes, but it depends how busy they are. If there are other customers wanting a table, I'd clear off pronto.

72. My bed is absolutely my favourite place on the planet, above even Krakow, Vienna or the cat rescue centre. It's so comfortable and safe and cosy and I can read and watch tv and snooze and sometimes I do work in bed, and there's a great view from my bedroom window onto the gardens and fields behind and some big trees with lots of birds and the odd marauding squirrel, and owls. Heaven.

I do take your point. In my defence though, I had been in a cafe for two hours yesterday before writing this, and had three huge cups of coffee because I was too embarrassed to sit there without a full cup in front of me.

Mashed potatoes. No raw eggs. If you'd said BROWNIE batter instead of cake mix, I'd risk salmonella for it.

Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill?
Yes. I once got out and stopped traffic thinking a cat was alive and needing emergency treatment that hadn't been alive for at least a day. Still haunts me.

Bluergh. The first thing I thought of was a buttcheek as Voltaire somehow convinced me that losing one was survivable. But maybe....tonsils or an ear lobe. For the ear lobe batter it and deep fry it and serve with curried ketchup for the tonsils, maybe saute it in butter with garlic and some lemon and hide it in chowder.

If there are not any open spots zero minutes. If there are open tables maybe 5-10 minutes. If I want to stay longer and the place isn't crowded after 10 minutes I usually just order another drink and drink it slowly until I'm ready to leave...

I need a new one. I had surgery in December (hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy and restoration of a herniated abdomen/intestine - I'm recovering well) and spent most of December laying about in bed, so my love for BED as a destination/location is waning at the moment. Ordinarily it would rank around a 9 or 10, but after a month of bedrest it's a 3. If I had a new bed frame and mattress (mine sags a bit and leads to backache) it would be a 6 even after a month of bedrest.

Given the choice, would you rather lick the bowl that had had cake mix in it, or mashed potato? - Mashed potato. And I wouldn't lick the bowl - I'd either use my finger or a spoon.

Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill? - I stare at other drivers around me and wish they were.

In the unlikely scenario of someone ordering you to eat a part of your own body, which bit would you choose, why, and how would you cook it? - I would eat my stomach raw, and then it would just go back down and continue being my stomach.

What's a reasonable time to stay and sit reading in a cafe when you have finished your tea/coffee whatever and you don't plan on buying anything else? - I don't sit and read in cafés, but if I did, I think I'd follow Martha's guidelines. They seem reasonable.

Bed: on a scale of 1 to 10, how great is bed? - And again, like Martha, we need a new mattress. Ours is about 18 years old, and no amount of flipping and rotating is going to do it any more good. New bed now for the future!

Cake mix.

Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill?

Sometimes, yeah. Not exactly a sigh of telief, but.

Testicles. Fried with garlic.

A couple of minutes.

Easy 9 or 10.

Why choose. Dinner and dessert! (though hypotheticals don't give you diabetes... so why not eat ALL the cake mix!)

My heart RACES, and I try NOT to look in case. I pretty much love dead looking plastic bags because at least they were never alive.

no. I need them.

3 hours

Right now it feels like a 10 but a scale SO far away.

Mashed potato every time! Mashed potato butties, mashed potato pie...mashed potato.

Do you stare at things in the road when you're driving and breathe a sigh of relief when they are not roadkill?

It's the most depressing thing in the world. Some of the drives to and from Houston, Corpus Christi are so distressing. Fucking dogs, out in the road and people just driving by. I say an inner thank you every time it's just a coat or a shoe or something.

It's no great shakes to lose a little toe. Gait is restored pretty quickly. That's my choice : just one though. I could probably pop it in a quiche if I took the polish off. Mushroomy.

What's a reasonable time to stay and sit reading in a cafe when you have finished your tea/coffee whatever and you don't plan on buying anything else?

If there isn't anyone in, probably half an hour. I can't do it though! I have to buy something else.

10. Is there anything better? I've still got my hot water bottle going. Bloody lovely.

Cake mix, without hesitation

Not really. I do fetch a sigh when I see it though.

Cake. Every time. Maybe the lid of a yoghurt pot or ice cream tub could rival it, but not much else.

No. We don't get a lot of animals playing dead on the South Circular.

A toe. Can't think of another bit that I would miss less. Flambé.

40 minutes.
