Send it off in a letter to yourself

It probably goes without saying, but I've felt a little blahhh lately. It's getting colder and darker outside. I feel the need to hibernate. And I'm craving corn. I don't know why - I just want some sweet, hot, buttery corn. Not popcorn though. At my last job, some people would microwave popcorn at every break and gab and bitch while chomping, often sending popcorn particles flying. Sometimes there were just too many dirty hands fighting their way into the popcorn bag. It just lost it's appeal. Plus, if you're not eating it, it kinda stinks sometimes. I don't know if it was the brand or what, but popcorn shouldn't smell like barf. Just my two cents.

Update: it's lunchtime and I didn't get my corn. Oh well. Decided on quick cheap Chinese food instead, as the boss and I both forgot or were too lazy to bring lunches. It's funny how every place will make the same dish a little differently. One of my good old standbys is cashew chicken. One place we go to will have it along with peppers, carrots and zucchini and will be in a brown sauce. Today's is with pea pods, mushrooms, water chestnuts (blech) and celery and is in that kind of flavorless snotty looking sauce. I was hoping it would have the baby corn in it, but oh well! Hmm, you know, as I sit here eating and typing.... it's really not that good. But maybe I'm more nauseated because the radio station is playing that medley from "Grease." Did I mention that for the most part, I cannot stand showtunes/musicals? Uggh. Must. Change. Channel. Oh no, "Old Time Rock n Roll" is on! What, are they trying to kill me? Alright, change it again. Steve Miller Band followed by Steely Dan. Yeah man... that'll work.

(Update: I did an image search for corn, and this was just so terribly cute, I had to put it up! There's more at baruchito.com)

Between musicals and Bob Seeger, I'm shocked you were able to finish typing. I would have died.

I'm DJ-ing a wedding next September and the only specific request the couple had was for that Grease Megamix. Holy cats! What made it doubly funny was that I actually had that song on my laptop to play for them at the interview. I was half elated that I could be so Johnny-on-the-spot for them and half embarrassed, because, really, what the fuck is that song doing on my laptop?!

Great times.

Sorry, Hot Pockets. I hit the "Post" button twice. I didn't delete anything too saucy for TV.

Maybe you need a new corn delivery system. I found an ice cream place with corn ice cream once. There are those corn flavored jelly beans too.

Wow! So someone does read our blog, Hot Pockets! I was sure that the "Peebles" posting was sent into the ozone unnoticed.

I'm trying cashew chicken next time, that sounds good.

The Chinese place around here makes the food such that nowhere else in the world tastes the same. I think that means they're doing it wrong, but it's still good.

(Now, the following, if said out loud, would be in a high-pitched annoying baby-talk voice:) Cute baby hamp eating corn! I love baby hamps!

All right. I'm done. And I'm not psycho.
