Sprinkling Julienned Bits of Love and Joy

Thanks for all the advice and opinions. I think I’m comfortable enough to use my real name because I generally just stick to writing about food and not the people who live down the street that let their flea-infested dog crap on my front lawn. I figure that if I can make fun of myself almost as often as I poke fun at someone else, the world will go on spinning. If I can’t publish something and stand behind it, then I probably shouldn’t have said it at all.

I really think as a food blogger, I have some sort of responsibility to self-edit and sprinkle perfectly julienned bits of love and joy to all of mankind. Oh yeah, and world peace.

Great thing is that I always have the strikethrough option, so when I say “sometimes I sprinkle Splenda on my salad” I can strike and and pretend that you couldn’t read that. Its kind of a built in “do-over” and whatever I said doesn’t count towards my karma.

And to those people at the she-male site who obviously are fans of my site, I’ve come to accept that TRANSVESTITES ARE FOODIES TOO.

Just don’t touch me.

    It seems like people mostly only get in trouble with their blogs when they talk about secret work stuff or complain about their boss (see dooce.com, for instance.)

    Ah, so you did notice … :-D

    BTW, OT & FYI just a bit … under “Blogs I Read”, the pic for the Chef’s Blog Directory doesn’t show up here.

    And now, more on-topic … what do Asian folks have for breakfast?? My stepson is spending 17 days in China in July, and I have no clue what he might find in front of him first thing in the mornings.

    Ok, just totally kidding!

    Is he going on an organized tour? Usually if its a tour, they will have a choice of western bfast or chinese bfast which is usually breads, pastries, rice congee (porridge) with bits of meat, vegetables, preserved vegetables – see http://nookandpantry.blogspot.com/2007/05/century-egg-congee.html

    The trip is organized through People-to-People, however there are some nights the students are staying with families vs. at some kind of hotel. At those homes, 17-year-old John may find only the Chinese bfast is available. He’s an extremely picky eater, liking only pizza (pepperoni only!), Taco Bell, pancakes, bacon and fried egg sandwiches, but at least he’s finally getting used to eating rice!

    Keely- you’re right about dooce. She’s brutally honest and some people can’t take that kind of honesty!
