You all know I have my quirks, right?  
I don't like dolphins, woodland creatures on the whole, celery, wrinkly things in baked goods (if there are brown chunks it needs to be chocolate or nuts), tapioca pudding, or gourds of any kind.

Gourds... like pumpkins, squashes, zucchini, the melon family, etc. Don't bring it around here. We'll not have it. (Well, my family might. But since I'm the head cook, grocery shopper and bottle washer, I speak for all three of the boys and myself.)

I think pumpkin pie is an aberration of nature. To quote my sister, "I think people should make dessert out of something that is, oh, I don't know, NOT a vegetable."

Preach it, Em.

SO when Mom sent me this, she knew I'd think it was freaking hysterical.


SEE?! Pumpkin pies are Jack-o-lantern poop. Eat 'em at your own risk.

HEE! &hearts Thanks, Mom. I'm still grinning.

That's HILARIOUS. So's the picture you posted below. I'm a halloween HATER but that I would consider doing. (it would fit in my neighbourhood; we live 3 doors down from a beer store)

*hee* Thanks for the laugh!

Oh, Carrie. This just makes me sad, and I'm not even a huge fan of pumpkin pie. What's next? Saying Santa isn't real to the kindergartners???

J/J, you know I love you. :)
Carrie Leigh: what the crapcarrie_leigh on November 18th, 2009 10:21 pm (UTC)
Santa isn't real?

Then who the hell leaves me presents under the tree at Mom's house?

:) I love you, too.

*giggles* Brilliant!

I'm with you *nods* Desserts should be made out of something that is not a vegetable!

Hear, hear.

I agree with you on the tapioca.

However, celery is one of my most favorite snacks. I'll eat a whole bunch in a sitting if you let me. Especially if there is peanut butter nearby.

Pumpkin seeds are awesome roasted and pumpkin pie is The Holiday Dessert of choice for me. I like the custard-y ones better than the 'hearty' types. God bless Mrs. Smith.

In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a gourd I don't like.

Oatmeal cookies aren't the same without raisins, but I'm not wild about them gracing most other baked goods.

I have this feeling that if we ever share a meal, you'll be glaring at my plate the whole time. ;D It's okay. I love you anyway.

Celery makes my mouth go numb. That's not right.

I wouldn't glare at your plate. I'd feel bad that you were eating yucky food, but I wouldn't glare. ;)

Ha! I've never been a fan of pumpkin pie either. Just thw whipped cream on top!
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 19th, 2009 02:32 am (UTC)
Now, whipped cream is a WHOLE different story. I can throw down with some whipped cream.

Addition to the crazy...
I'm not big on punkins either. Nor gourds of any kind unless I am throwing them at something, i.e. mailboxes, or at the enemy. Tapioca pudding...eh.
I am however a fan of dolphins because they aren't scared of sharks and the entertainment value that they provide to the world as well as our honeymoon. Celery is UUMMM, UUMMM, good especially during the holiday season as an appetizer with some sort of cheese spread. I especially love woodland creatures. If I know my wife she has written about my reasons on this subject.

Re: Addition to the crazy...
I'm not doing the appetizers this year, your cousins are, so you can talk to them about your nasty celery habit.

And NOLAN! Welcome to livejournal! I love you. :)

Re: Addition to the crazy...

Someone in your house likes celery. I find this satisfying for some reason...

In Japan, they like to use red sweet beans in desserts, and there are many times when you can't tell whether the beans are in there until you've started eating.

That's not right at all.
