Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Wednesday, 08 February 2006

Don’t you just hate it when you’re hungry for something, and you can’t figure out what it is?  Boy, do I hate that.  I’ve been sort of casting around the house for something good to eat for the past few days.  I’ve gone to the grocery store repeatedly for things on my list and, after filling the list, I’ve just sort of wandered the aisles waiting for something to catch my eye, and for my brain to say “Yes!  That’s IT! That’s what we want!”


No joy. 


This must be what hell is like for those people who just drifted through life never really doing anything particularly bad, but never really doing anything good either.


Nothing tastes right either.  You know, I’ve got to eat SOMETHING at meal times…but everything I make just sort of sits there…not being particularly bad…just not particularly good.


It’s like everything tastes like oatmeal.  Different flavors of oatmeal.

Pardon my ignorance, but what's the connection to Wilfred Brimley?

He did a series of commercials for Quaker Oats a few years back. It was kind of a "saturation campaign" where almost every commercial block had a spot with Wilfred Brimley hawking the diatery health benefits of oatmeal.

But great, now that I had to explain it, it doesn't seem nearly so amusing. Thanks a lot. :-)

I can totally relate. It's that "there's something better, but what?" feeling. Lately I feel that way about how I spend my time. All the obvious choices hold about as much appeal as an all-you-can-eat oatmeal buffet.

Try throwing some frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast in a baking pan, tossing a bags worth (or maybe two with your family) of mixed frozen veggies over the top, and then drizzling Ranch dressing and olive oil over the whole thing. Bake at about 400 degrees for an hour. My neighbor and I both thought it was yummy. If all else fails, try some Godiva chocolate (probably eaten separately would be best).
