Zoooooooooom!!!

I'm the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland today. COMPLETELY forgot until almost too late that I had a luncheon with some girlfriends today, and holy COW is my belly happy. (The hostess got the chef at a local place to personally prepare our menu. Poppy is his name, and he looks like an ex-football player. Massive, huge, hugable and can COOK.



  • Fresh green beans in light tempura, with a saki/soy sauce for dipping. (Holy god. I want this every day.)

  • artichoke/red pepper dip with rosemary pita bread

  • acorn squash/red pepper soup, hint of cream

  • spinach and walnut salad with Mandarin oranges

  • angel hair pasta with asiago/cream sauce, topped with blackened red snapper and blackened grilled shrimp

  • vanilla-bean cheesecake with dried cherries in brandy sauce AND

  • bread pudding with apricots and raspberries.



Tiny, delicate, avant-garde portions of everything, but STILL. That's about how much I eat in a DAY. My tum is sleepy, but I have THINGS TO DO. So I will nap later.

My sister posted this on her blog, and it needs to be shared!! Who remembers when Sesame Street used to be good? Back before Elmo? Before everyone knew Snuffalupagus was real? Before.. *sniff* Mr. Hooper died? When Linda and DAVID were dating on the show? (OMG, the soap opera! Hahahaha.) One of my most favorite counting songs ever: Number 9 Martian. We still sing this song in my family on road trips. (We're that dorky family, sorry.)

Have a great day! (And I seriously need a FOOD ICON!!)

What a delectable meal! *tries to stop myself from salivating all over the keyboard* Yum to nth degree!

*raises hand* I remember Sesame Street when it was good! I think I remember when they introduced Elmo, but he was never a main character. He only ever had occasional appearances. And, the show was sweet without being cloyingly so! Yes...*sighs* I remember!

YUM, so good! And we sat under a huge pecan tree, and there was a gentle breeze, and birdsong, and EXCELLENT TIME had. *sighs contentedly*

There used to be a really cool little animated sketch with a kid who loses his bike, and this hippy/pimped out hippo teaches him to "walk backwards through your mind." Duuuuuude. Acid-tripy coolness. And do you remember the one with the kid who has the big wash pan and they show all the uses? Like for boiling potatoes, washing the dog, splashing in, etc? Or "That's how they make Chinese noodles! They get thinner... and longer.... And longer.... and thinner..." I loved that stuff.

Mmmm, but you have now been made fresh, by The Freshmaker! Did it enable you to have a wacky caper that made an authority figure smile and let you flaunt the LAW?

*boxes up leftovers and sends them to you*

The meal sounds to die for...actually, the green beans aren't very hard to make... :)

I always liked the 12 ladybugs picnic...and still sing it sometimes... :)

*sigh* Ahh, the days of youth...

Oh, but I don't fry anything anymore, so making tempura seems so TIME CONSUMING.... I'll just drive down the street and let Poppy make it for me. :D

One, two, three!
Four, five, six!
Seven, eight, nine!
Ten, eleven, twelve! And the ladybugs came... to the ladybug picnic!

All I had was leftover spaghetti for lunch and now I'm hungry.

Tucked away somewhere I still have my Fisher-Price Sesame Street toy set, complete with Mr. Hooper and his store. It had Bert and Ernie and Susan I think her name was? And Oscar and Big Bird. No Elmo in sight!
stoney321
May. 8th, 2006 01:38 pm (UTC)
Yes!! Yes!! I had that! And Oscar in his trash can! Man, I remember when Olivia and Linda (the deaf woman) were the new people!

omg, that all sounds soooo good I could die. I would sell my soul for the artichoke and red pepper dip. If i had a soul, I mean. And you don't even wanna know what I'd sell for the cheesecake :p

(Snuffalupagus was BEST when nobody knew he was real! Big Bird/Snuffy OTP!!)

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Awesome! Fur and feather snuggles!!

The dip was goooooood. It was ALL good. (The vanilla bean! I could smell it before it hit the table. DELISH.)

I would sell my soul for a link to the most cracked out Sesame Street fic ever, with Bert as a drugged out abuser and Ernie as his little bitch, who stabs him to death.



...and somewhere, an entire flock of birds fell from the sky, dead.

I seriously love that fic, Bill. It is so sweet and sad...
And yes, no one but Big Bird should be able to see Snuffy!

FOOD SO GOOD. And they have a fabulous outdoor patio with trees and plants and pottery and jazz bands on the weekends, and a fantastic waitstaff, and you can be in shorts but have four-star cuisine. YAY!! And a big play area for kids, too. NICE.)

Em mde me replay that one three times! That was seriously my family's most favorite song, ever. We sang it around the house all the time.

The Snuffalupogus thing happened after I switched to Electric Company (With a younger Morgan Freeman as "Easy Reader"), and I always thought it was a terrible thing. Mostly because I was the child with an imaginary friend or three, myself, and it took something special and "okay" about that away.

(The "Katie in the looking glass" type thing. :( )

I KNOW. They aren't. They suck. Mostly. I love Oobi for little kids, but the pre-school/K grade? They have NOTHING.

What about the Fonzie-themed, "The sign says ONE WAY!" Telephone rock is still my most favorite:

Hey, Mr. Operator, gimmie a tone.
I gotta reach my baby on the telephone, yeah yeah.

Yeah. Yeah. YEAH!!! Rock rock rock rock rock!
The Telephone Rock!

Do you remember the "walk backwards through your mind" one? A classic: a loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter.

I want those green beans. NOW! Heee! That sounds so delish. *envies your haute cuisine*

And... random PBS show love! Your subject line has just put the theme song of ZOOM! in my head, and

Zoom, zoom, zooma zoom. Zooma zooma zoom zoom zoom.

talk about trippy.

You may be to young to remember the rugby shirts and science demonstrations and it was filmed in Boston, Em A Es Es. Heee. I loved that show.

Too young to... Flatterer. :)

Zoomazoomazoom! That's where I learned how to do the cool arm flippy thing and say my name! (And I had a stripey shirt JUST LIKE them when I was five!)

I grew up on SStreet and Electric Company. Should, could, would! Shooby-dooby!

I remember when SS started! (My brother is a lot younger than I am and I would watch with him.). That first year there used to be a hilarious segment where Ernie would pull Bert's nose off and reattach it to his forehead. They pulled it when they realized it might encourage kids to yank people's noses.

I like Elmo in small doses. It never fails to amuse me that Elmo is a big black guy in reality (He also does the jazz guy who play sax.) He's an amazingly talented puppeteer.

I was WEANED on SS. I loved that segment! Ernie was making a clay model of Bert's face, and he forgot the nose! Do you remember the magic pointing finger? Kermit and Bert did that.

I just reposted with a whole mess of links from the old show. (The opener had that great intro with the kids running around outside, and I used to tell my mom it was okay for me to run without my shirt because the little girl in the intro did. Hee!)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
