Moccasin eating spaghetti

Writer's Block: You Ate What?

What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? Would you eat it again?

Back in 9th grade, Sarah brought some dark reddish-brown chunks to school and gave me a piece. I thought it was candy (it looked like a shard of candy), so I put it in my mouth. It tasted like a mixture of soap and something nasty, so I immediately spit it out, and Sarah started laughing. It was donkey hoof. EEEEEEAAAAAAUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Those tricksy Chinese, with their weird food...

Although when you think about it, cheese is pretty damn weird. I mean, whose idea was it, anyway? "Hey, let's go molest this poor mama cow and then drink what comes out. And then, to make things more interesting, let's add a bunch of crazy bacteria until it turns solid and maybe changes color! MMMMMMMM!" Now, I love most kinds of cheese and all, but seriously! That's some weird food idea.

I liked that scene in one of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" books (I forget exactly, I haven't read them in almost 8 years) where Arthur shuts down the ship's computer by asking for tea with milk.
I love my hand!

So, I went to War Practice today. I brought Colin and Daragh with me. I think Daragh had more fun than Colin, but then again sometimes people need to be temporarily dragged away from their precious video games and experience something different. (I would know!) Then again, I suck at being a guide or deciding what to do, so we spent half the time standing/sitting around going "uhhhh... what should we do next?" Ah well. We watched some of the fighting and hung out with Vreile and stuff. So yay. It rained at the end, which made walking back to the car interesting. Despite the rain, I got sunburned. Gahhhhh.... my pastiness!

War Practice is fun, but Pennsic is a lot fun...ner. I should really go to more barony meetings and actually get to know people in my local group. (I went to one barony meeting and did talk to people, but that was months ago, and I should do more local stuff.)
