I remember watching an interview that Cookie Monster did with a young reporter who was searching out the meaning of the term 'NOM' which is another name for FOOD. Apparently it comes from the sound Cooking Monster makes when he tears into a cookie - "OM NOM NOM NOM"
When I caption my cat pictures I used the word 'NOM' all the time to refer to food. It just sounds funny to me. If 'LOL' and 'OMG' can get into the Oxford English Dictionary then 'NOM' certainly deserves to be in that book.
Since I have been diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes, I have really had to watch my diet so when I DO eat something that is not good for me (I refuse to cut everything with sugar out of my life because life is meant to be lived) I try to choose something that makes the cheating worthwhile. It's all about moderation.
I can't wait until summer when the cherries are around and will eat them everyday if I can. "Hello, my name is Calvin and I am a cherryaholic."
I also love pancakes. They are like crack to me. Nothing better than cold pancakes the next day. As kids we would make strawberry jam sammiches and substitute pancakes for bread.
Gummi Bears are my favorite candy. You can imagine how much I was drooling all over my keyboard when I first saw that for 30 bucks you can buy this monster gummi bear.
•Approx: 5 Pounds! 10 inches tall! •Bigger than a football! •Over 1,000 times the size of a typical gummy bear! •A whopping 51 servings!
I read an article some time back about the last meals of death row inmates. The myth is that you can have all your favorite stuff has persisted forever but often restrictions are put on what a 'last meal' can consist of. What would be YOUR last meal. This would be mine:
seafood soup (my Dad's recipe) double cheeseburger with fries steak and lobster garlic mashed potatoes with fried mushrooms 2 litre Pepsi lemon and cherry tarts
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
