    ARHH I was reading this post getting all flustered and frantic because I had something to say about EVERY component of it, and I’m trying desperately to remember them all…AGHEIHDIU

    Here goes.. before they all totally leave my brain…In no particular order –

    – you’ve inspired me to take the plunge and order the turtle chex mix from USAfoods. I’ve been toying with the idea for a while, and you’ve just pushed me over the edge.
    – butter-ANYTHING is fantastic. I WANT BUTTER-GRITS. And I want that to be my slightly sexual-sounding nickname. Kinda like ‘Sugar Lips’ or something.
    – my cleavage (minimal though it is) is an absolute FIEND for stealing my food. I’m forever finding chips, popcorn, cereal, chocolate and breadcrumbs down there. The other night I was getting changed before bed, and found THREE APPLE SEEDS AND HALF A TINY TEDDY (more like 3/4… it was just missing its arms and one leg). How I don’t notice this during the day, I will never know… they’re almost always POINTY things, too.
    – Handbag peanut butter is a must. But I hope you have minimal inexplicable sad moments, and therefore don’t have to use it often (but peanut butter is remarkably versatile… it can be both a comfort and a celebration food).
    – Angus gave me a great ridiculous compliment last night… ‘When my packages of surprise muesli arrived today, I loved you so much. I loved you as much as it is possible to love somebody without being violently ill. Loving you makes me feel like vomiting.’
    ….oh, good. I’ve been told I have that effect on men :\

    WTF is a grit?

    And give me those chocolate blacks. We could have a horrendous time in the UC library. Like, now. yeah kthxbai

    My lap has been winning the gravitational pull of foods lately, beating out my cleavage which has been enjoying the lion’s share of miscellaneous foodstuffs for far too long.

    Oh god, marking! If it weren’t for you, I would forget about my responsibilities entirely. I have at least printed them all off, written the names on the ones that the students were too foolish to write their own names on, and stapled them together. A great start, no?

    I want to know who they are quoting on the crab chip packaging.

    I’m with Conor – my lap has always exerted a strong gravitational pull when food is around.

    Not just once have I left the cinema, blinking at the bright glaring sunshine, not yet aware that huge gobs of melted choc top are on my crotch, amusing passersby….

    1. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

      I would like to do an experiment with us sitting side by side, and someone eating a choc bomb directly above where our laps intersect to see whose lap has a stronger gravitational pull. In fact, we could get Hannah’s cleavage in there too!

    peanut butter in handbag sounds like a great idea.

  6. chocolatesuze

    i sometimes carry nutella sachets in my handbag…

  7. Lorraine Not Quite Nigella

    Lol well someone once told me that I knew a wholenlot of really random information! I took it as a compliment but I don’t know if he meant it as one 😛

    GRITS!! I have a dearly beloved, Quaker grits cardboard tube in my cupboard that is going to be enjoyed very slowly.

    Ah, butter flavour. Almost as good as the liquid butter sauce you can squirt onto your popcorn at the movies in the US.

    I want those crab chips!! That is something to hunt down for sure!

    Things that make me go hmmmm- Butter Flavour. Um, no thanks. That stuff is so toxic that it can kill factory workers making microwave popcorn. I’m not wanting to be going anywhere near that (not that I really did before I knew about this either)
    And what the hell is that chex turtle stuff? OMG is that actually supposed to be a cereal? No way. But they have stylised milk at the bottom of the packet. I see it comes in a bar with “health” claims. Can anyone really be fooled by the fact that it has “8 grams of whole grains”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not all bah humbug and I love turtle flavour as much as the next person, but breakfast cereals aren’t supposed to be turtle.
    The chocolate almonds though- now they interest me. I haven’t tried any of the bubbly stuff. I’m old enough to remember Aero bars, and I figure it’ll just be a wannabe Aero, that won’t live up to childhood memories.

    I’d be impressed if you wrote an entire post on your cadbury chocolates in a villanelle – it is my ultimate in poetry form after being told by a tutor that this was what sylvia plath practiced.

    As for the granola in the bra – I hope you are not taking me up on the suggestion of growing grains in your bra to sell at farmers markets. I take no responsibility for EHS issues 🙂

  11. Nirmala

    My kitchen floor is my gravitational pull. Seriously, something ends up on the floor every single day.

  12. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    1. YES. Total agreement from me.
    2. Hehe! My cleavage is a particularly big fan of chocolate chips.
    3. Minty fresh…hrm =/
    4. I don’t know who Tim Tam is…
    5. What a haul! Ironic, though, that it’s Cadbury 😉
    6. Great attitude! Better than mine…I can be a little touchy about people (people I don’t know very well, at least) laughing AT me (unless I’m laughing at me too).
    7. I’m so jealous you have a friendly sibling!
    8. That is awesome. I don’t even know that guy, and I love him.

  13. Simply Life

    ha, now that would be a good idea to just start carrying pb around everywhere!

  14. Maria@TheGourmetChallenge

    Peanut butter in the handbag….just brilliant. That way while your walking around during the day if you stumble across celery you always have its natural condiment!

    Food in boobs, it should be a recognised medical condition. Its genetic you know, if seen my mum carry whole chicken wings on hers. Handy if you get hungry later.

    Ps. I vote for haiku

  15. Iron Chef Shellie

    mmmm me wanty some crab chips!

    I’m voting limerick

    Must. Have. Turtle Chex Mix. Now.

    Last night, I was somehow captured on camera wearing a snuggie at a birthday party. Perhaps you saw it. For some odd reason, I’m flattered that it’s my picture that made it on the Internet. (Everyone at the party tried on the snuggie at some point.)

    toothpaste on noses have been know to happen, perfectly normal 😉 Now pass me the Trader Joes dark chocolate almonds now…, its been ages.

  18. Monique@She's Going The Distance

    Some of those look very disturbing haha. And you’re not alone, whenever I get chocolate covered fruits from Trader Joes, I always end up scarving it all down in one day. It’s a problem, I’m well aware. And I loooooove that Turtle Chex mix. No shame in it for me haha.
