Well, we have Bradford Pears in bloom, along with lilacs. Bradford pear flowers smell like semen, and the lilac makes it smell like, uh, purple semen.

We have those pears planted all over the place in Albany. They look nice enough but that smell is really just awful.

They're everywhere here in south Jersey as well.  Makes certain stretches of my bike ride smell really bad. 

I just tell myself, it's better than some tropical flowers like the dragon arum that reportedly smell like rotting flesh and feces.

That sounds bad... Over here the worst you'll smell is manure and that's something that fades quickly.

You know what smells good? The chocolate I bought in Germany today. My sister was like: screw King's Day. Let's go grocery shopping in Germany.

So we did.

Titan arum isn't that bad. It just sort of smells like warm garbage. If you live in an urban area in the summer, you're going to be used to that anyway.

I used to eat Ritter bars but then I found out they were glazed with shellac. I guess the verb for being glazed with shellac is shellacked.

I went for a walk but I didn't get out much during the winter because weather so now my feet are delicate and babby feet and I can only walk like four miles before getting tired. I guess I'll go play ATELIER KHEMIA or something else that's colorful and summery.

Meanwhile, overcompensated for caffeine withdrawal with too much caffeine and now my eyelid's going on an adventure. On the plus hand, caffeine does seem to deaden my more sociopathic tendencies.

What if whenever you told someone to go to hell they actually did and you be all like HEY BRING ME BACK A T-SHIRT and they do but it's a hell t-shirt so it don't actually fit right or you can never wash your beard hairs out of it?

Ritter Sport is fun because of all the different flavours, but if you want pure quality I'd go with Vivani[/ur]. Which is also available in a ton of flavours, but they're organic and don't have any weird stuff in them.

If I die tonight, I hope at least some of you will miss me.

Just had some chicken that I am about 60% sure was undercooked. But after being assured by two somewhat reliable sources that it was fine, I ate about one and a half thighs.

I really need to go out and find a good vegetarian cook book.

Went to the Wizards game this afternoon with one of my college buddies.  The Wizards were missing their 2nd-best player, but somehow CREAMED the Bulls.  Wiz won by 9, but were up by as much as 25 in the second half.  Hugely entertaining.

Assuming my Pacers win the series against the Hawks (and I think they will since they have homecourt advantage right now) it looks like we'll be facing your Wizards next round :P

Chicken thighs are sometimes hard to call as "just right" or "undercooked". You sometimes get that really dark,almost bloody spot close to the bone and you can't help but feel scared. Sometimes the best bet is to just trust your instincts, but if the juice runs clear, it's cooked through.

I wouldn't be too scared of dying, but you may get a case of food poisoning akin to my bout last week. Good luck either way.

TASTY!

If it makes you feel any better, my dinner was just raw corn, some watermelon that had either gone off or wasn't ripe enough in the first place, half a piece of zaatar bread from a week ago, and some beet fruit leather. I'm going to top it off with thin mints.

... I used to like dogs a lot but then the suspension of disbelief sort of broke down and now I can't see them as anything more than tubes made out of meat.

Well I was fine. To your point, the meat wasn't bloody at all, just very pink. I think what happened was my stepdad had so much sauce in the dish that he ended up boiling the chicken instead of baking it.

You could be like me and carry a meat thermometer anytime you go to eat somewhere.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.
