I seem to have lost my tweezers...

Various Thoughts:

1.  I am very thirsty.  I'll try to refrain from drinking one of the Great Lakes, but I make no promises.  Hopefully the amount of fish poop they contain will be enough of a deterrent.

2.  Today my mother told me about a restaurant that serves deep-fried green beans.  At first I reacted with confusion and horror, and then I realized it actually sounded good.  There are very few things that could not be improved by deep-frying.  (Possible exceptions involve old tires, newspapers, digital watches, and batteries.  Everything else is up for grabs.)  What do you all think?  Do deep-fried green beans sound good to you?

3.  I hate migraines.

4.  I have recently discovered the underwear conservation principle:  Even after getting a brand new package of underwear, I still gravitate toward wearing the old ones because I want the new ones to last as long as possible.  Dave Barry once wrote that guys tend to be so reluctant to let go of old underwear that they'll still wear it even after it reaches the point where it is little more than "eight loosely connected underwear molecules which need to be handled with tweezers."  I understand this phenomenon completely, and apparently it's not always just a guy thing.

5.  I apologize if that was more information than you needed to know.

At least the fried green beans have a little nourishment. How about the new bacon hot fudge sundae?

Green beans give me migraines. The same thing happens when my old underwear is too tight.

You're right about deep-fried anything - I'm sure even Twinkies taste better that way (I've never had them but my husband has!)

And yeah, I so get get the underwear thing...actually I keep the old underwear as "back-up" - ya know, wear the old ones on a day when I will just be hanging out at home...It is such a weird little quirk but harmless...

Marcia: Bacon improves almost everything, yet I'm not entirely sure if it would improve a hot fudge sundae. Hmmmm.

nonamedufus: If you put the green beans in your underwear, it might help to loosen things up.

Grace: I've always wanted to try a deep fried Twinkie. I've had deep fried macaroni and cheese, and it's actually pretty yummy. (!)

Meloncutter: OMG! OMG! Wow! Welcome back! I swear I was just thinking about you the other day while I was looking through some old blog comments.
