Saturday Potpourri

Here are various things I was going to just put in the comments section, in response to other people, but some of it is so long I figured I might as well just make a new post out of it. (Hey, it's my blog, I can do what I want, right?.... right?)

for Natalie, regarding Bobby Flay: I don't get cable, so I get to see the Food Network only rarely. (But it is one of my favorite networks nonetheless!:) I've seen Bobby Flay maybe once or twice. I like the fact that he's not afraid to cook hot spicy things, but didn't really get a taste of what his personality is like. He's cocky, huh? Hmm. Anybody else agree with that? Tell me all about it.

Amisare Waswerebeen: Every time I see your name, I remember high school English class where we learned our "helping verbs"! Except we learned them in this order: Am, are, is, be, was, were, been, have, has, had, do, does, did, can, could, shall, should, will, would, may, might, must! We had a good teacher that really DRILLED that list into us. (As evidenced by the fact that I still remember it all at the age of 37!)

Morgen said he liked the "old" Jim Carrey on In Living Color, and isn't real fond of the "new" celebrity Jim Carrey. I'm exactly the opposite! I couldn't STAND him on that show! Jim Carrey annoyed the hell out of me back then. It was only after his celebritization and subsequent mellowing (such as it was) that I began to like him.

Morgen also wondered if anyone actually refers to coleslaw as "cabbage salad." Yes. It's rare, but I've heard it called that. (I just did an Internet search for "cabbage salad", and it produced coleslaw recipes, as well as other cabbage-based salads). It does seem to be a rare term, I'll grant you that. Are any of the rest of you familiar with this?

I would also like to take this moment to thank ALL of you, everyone who reads my blog, and especially everyone who leaves comments. I do read each and every comment, and I'm grateful for every one! Thank you all!

I'm glad someone actually realized what my name means. As a class, we got to come up with our own pnemonic device to remember some of these words. So we came up with a person named Amisare Waswerebeen and he was from Seembecomebe. Not sure why, but this popped into my head when I was thinking of a username.
