Posted:the word 'it' is a weird one.

lewis carroll pointed it out to me.

it goes something like:

Written by: lewis carroll, literary genius

`I beg your pardon!' said the Mouse, frowning, but very politely. `Did you speak?'

`Not I!' said the Lory, hastily.

`I thought you did,' said the Mouse. `I proceed. "Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him; and even Stigand, the patriotic archbishop of Canterbury, found it advisable --"

`Found what?' said the Duck.

`Found it,' the Mouse replied rather crossly: `of course you know what "it" means.'

`I know what "it" means well enough, when I find a thing,' said the Duck: `it's generally a frog, or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?'

The Mouse did not notice this question, but hurriedly went on...





and then there's that thing about the jam...

Written by: mr charles dodgson

I'm sure I'll take you with pleasure!' the Queen said. `Twopence a week and jam every other day.'

Alice couldn't help laughing, as she said `I don't want you to hire me -- and I don't care for jam.'

`It's very good jam,' said the Queen.

`Well, I don't want any to-day, at any rate.'

`You couldn't have it if you did want it,' the Queen said. `The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday -- but never jam to-day.'

`It must come sometimes to "jam to-day",' Alice objected.

`No, it ca'n't, said the Queen. `It's jam every other day: to-day isn't any other day, you know.'

`I don't understand you,' said Alice. `It's dreadfully confusing!'

`That's the effect of living backwards,' the Queen said kindly...

Posted:Scientifically speaking, mold can grow on other molds and fungii, but it still doesn't explain why we bother to refrigerate mushrooms, or bleu cheese...what's the worst that can happen, it gets moldier?

Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.

Posted:I like putting mushrooms in the fridge. They taste beautiful raw and cold in a salad. Much nicer than room temperature, at least.

But then I guess they're pretty good cooked too. How indecisive of me.

It didn't help but it was the last place I looked for it.

I refridgerate bleu cheese because it is normally in a sauce wink

Posted:Mushrooms degenerate and turn into black slime if you don't refrigerate them. That or they turn into shriveled little dry things, depending on the conditions and what kind of shroomies you're talking about.

The little dry things, btw, are perfect for mushroom soup. They're slightly fermented (not enough to cause a problem), which intensifies their flavor as does drying.

Throw away the black slime. Don't breathe near it if you can help.

Oddly enough, I don't care for raw mushrooms. Partly this is due to just not eating them for years and years, because I cooked for (among others) some people who were immunocompromised, and raw mushrooms are not safe for them. And once I found out how they grow I got the icks when I ate them raw.

I like to sautee them in butter with a little garlic. Maybe some scallions. Sometimes a touch of tamari if I'm feeling Asian that day (no, the butter doesn't go with that). Or sometimes I sautee them in olive oil with garlic and sage. Had some of those for lunch today. YUMMMM.

/Offtopic

Pele, if it wasn't in the last place you looked for it, wouldn't you feel foolish? "I found it, but I decided to look a few more places just to be sure."

Actually that's a Zen thing. The two major errors in studying Zen are 1) Seeking the donkey that you're riding upon, and 2) having realized that you're seeking the donkey that you're riding upon, failing to dismount and continue seeking it.

Posted:last xmas i was heading off on a snowboarding trip at about 4 in the morning. on my way out the door i realised i still had the tv remote control in my hand (been boozing with my neighbours all night, bad girl spank and hadn't been to bed) so i hurried back in to leave the remote inside

conversation with self went something like this:

"i'll just leave this here, it's an unlikely spot, i know, but i'm confuzzled and in a hurry"

(i'll add here that i'm a gemini by the way)

"no Lisa, don't put it there, you'll NEVER remember that you've put it there"

"of course i will, it's SUCH an unlikely spot, it'll be IMPOSSIBLE to forget i put it there"

needless to say i still haven't found it....

places i've searched are: presses, drawers, wardrobes, under & down the side of every piece of furniture i own, the fridge, freezer, oven, washer, dryer, the bin, the loo cistern......

VANISHED!!! into thin air......

ubblol

(if anyone can think of anywhere i may have overlooked, please, i'd love to hear it. still sooooo anxious to find out where the little f*cker went to..... ubbloco )


My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely smile

Posted:I know this is an old one, but: if pro is the opposite of con, then what's the opposite of progress?

Why is it that they have braille on the *DRIVE-UP* ATM? (I get why they have it on the walk-up ones).

Why is it called a "bathroom" if it doesn't necessarily have a bath in it?

Did you hear about the guy who got pulled over by a cop who told him that it was a one-way street? He said, "But officer, I was only going one way!"

Is "disgruntled postal worker" a redundant phrase?

For that matter, if "disgruntled" means that you're unhappy, does "gruntled" mean that you're satisfied?

Why do stores offer "free gifts"? What, is this as opposed to a "not-free gift?

Lordy, it's not very pretty up in that brain of mine, is it?

Posted:Lighting: because they use the same ATM structure for both walk-up and drive-up ATMs, which makes them cheaper to make and maintain.

"Disgruntled" - I looked this up one time. This particular 'dis-' isn't a negative, but a habitual intensifier. "Gruntle" is just what it sounds like, a little grunt -- what we'd call a grumble. So a "disgruntled" employee is one who grumbles all the time (or is subject to periodic fits of grumbling).

I hate the phrase 'free gifts'. By rights they should be taken out and hung [HANGED!]/for the cold blooded murder of the English tongue.

As for the mushrooms, I know what happens when they go bad, it was the humor of the statement that I wanted to share. Silly people. :rolleyes:



I just had lunch. I am very gruntled.

Yeah, but the ATM's on the driver's side.

Yes, I know, I know...someone could drive them to the ATM and then they'd get out and go to it.
