As soon as I read the "tim tam slam" post I knew it would end up in some kind of cookie throw-down.

My understanding is that you disapprove of this. Confirm/deny?

thirteenkiller's post has gotten a lot of flags, and the tim-tam one has gotten a few too, but neither of them seems all that bad. The metachat reference in the former is apt enough—this sort of thing is at home there, sure—but I don't think an isolated shot of playful pseudo-bloggery is much of a crime. As a trend it'd bear looking at; right now it's a goofy non-event. We haven't exactly hit Threat Level: Elephant Day.

And folks actually reading the cupcake thread, rather than reacting to the silly presentation, seem to be enjoying it.

And hell, I'm overstating even the flagging volume; "a lot of" and "a few" means "two" here.

Today, I had brownies with M&Ms in them. I am currently working on a recipe for a donut that also contains M&Ms. The best part is, if some scientists' projections are correct, and we live in a toroidal universe, the baking or 'rising' of the donut will simulate the spatial expansion that causes almost every galaxy to be redshifted. That is to say, if each M&M can stand in for a galaxy in this metaphor, as the dough rises, the M&Ms will all move apart. An observer on a given M&M would see all of the other M&Ms redshifted (assuming he had some sort of telescope that could see through donut). This is great news to anyone who likes to eat nothing but red M&Ms.

I pruned those comments—indepenent of what Matt decides to do with the post, they were pure metatalk-crosspost assholery.

That thread made me want to acquire a Tim Tam and attempt the Slam, which is more than I can say for most things online (except that one site with the sex stuff).

Today's metafilter has been like laying on the couch while you have a cold and your parents are having dinner in the other room and you're ten years old and they're having a conversation about something and you can almost hear the words but not really, instead you just make out the general tone, but it's a tone that you're not really used to, and they're just talking about pedestrian things that sort of annoy you a little but seem ril ril special because you can't understand them at all because you're so sick and you keep coughing but the coughing doesn't hurt or anything, just scrapes your throat and then you fall asleep and drool on the arm of the couch and you wake up a little while later with spit all over the side of your face and your eyes hurt and you're hungry and they won't let you watch TV.

I had mulled over the idea of a Girl Scout Cookies Are Bad for You post* but decided it was too newsfiltery.

Besides, who am a I (a gravy as boo radley distainfully points out) to bring up the issue of fattening foods?

*As a child I sold my share of them with no thought to the calorie content, but as an adult I eschew them because they taste like shit.

I awakened in the middle of the night from a dream in which a mouse was stuck in my sweatshirt, scrambling around. We were both trying to get it out of there, but every time I'd shake a sleeve it would run into my hood, and I'd pull on my hood and it would run down my chest. So I woke up.

And do you know, when I woke up I found that my dick had turned to sugar and started to crumble, and the naked goat man who lives in my sock drawer was sitting in my easy chair laughing and throwing lit matches on my bedspread. So I got up and spread peanut butter on the windows until they stopped rattling, rolled back into bed, and slept soundly until morning.

And here I thought thirteenkiller was making a subtle dig
at MeFi content after reacting to the Britney content in that other thread.

Either than or Britney had discovered newfound telepathy with the dampening properties of her hair gone, and taken thirteenkiller over out of sheer spite.

When Mark Leyner talks about Trazz (I think the name of the character was in Et Tu, Babe) "baking donuts," and Mark doesn't know what that means and no one explains it and it's never resolved...well, what did it mean?

He would have to eat food instead of "uh...food?" for that to happen.

I ate some leftover shredded beef. I added green peppers and onions, wrapped it in a tortilla with some cheese and called it a "fajitarito".

It was everything you might have expected.

Today I'm gonna post about how I ate some pizza, which it turns out is bad for you (SHOCKA!) and then link to a blog about pizza. TOTALLY the best of the mothafuckin web.

except before I do that, I'll start me a website, and post it there instead.
posted by shmegegge at 6:53 PM on March 6, 2007


I ate four hotdogs. But they were turkey-dogs, which means they're healthy. Add some ketchup and I've satisfied three of four food groups. I was going to put some cheese on them (which would make my food group usage 4/4), but I was too lazy.

Stay tuned for more exciting stories.

I just had some broccoli pasta and it crossed my mind that it would make my urine stink but I didn't care. Then I remembered that it's asparagus that makes your piss stink.

Dear internet: I woke up feeling ill this morning and skipped breakfast as usual, but also forgot to bring lunch, and because exams are on the canteen is closed, so I'm now wonky from Dristan apple drink on an empty stomach and simulaneously half-asleep and incredibly fidgety.

Also, amazingly, about a half hour ago I had a serious craving for asparagus. No lie.

Hello, fellow MeFites. I wanted to make an FPP about what I've eaten today, but I'm not very good at posts to the blue, so, hopefully, one of you will give me a hand.

I've had a bowl of oatmeal, a bagel, and a box of instant stuffing.

Dear Ask Metafilter:

I hit three of the four major food groups today (coffee, cigarettes, beer), but I forgot about the fourth (actual food) until about midnight, when I started to get a little hungry, so I had some deep fried mac 'n' cheese wedges (with ranch sauce for dippin' purposes!) at Holman's.

So my question is this:

Did I, in fact, eat any actual food today?
posted by dersins at 1:00 AM on March 7, 2007


Dizzy's Food Rule # 26:
If it comes in a wedge, it is food.

Dizzy's Food Rule # 49:
If you can dip it in sauce, it is to be considered a fat-free food.
The sauce is the source of all fat and calories.

Dizzy's Food Rule # 50:
Avoid sauces to lose weight.

Heh. Oh, Boo. Maybe "distainfully" wasn't the right word. Actually there is no such word as "distainfully."
