At the beginning another kid mentioned a pumpkin patch; I assumed it was Charlie Brown out there but I also don't know if he has a brother, so if he doesn't, I could have ruled that out from the start. Ah well. Hello, ignorance.

I chuckled at Modern Family, because I was expected to love it and I felt bad not loving it, but I found it to be entirely underwhelming and trying way too hard. I never saw whole episodes of Frasier, Seinfeld, American Dad, Friends, The Office, Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens, etc. but the ...

What kind of fish did you guys have? No idea; it was in high school, sophomore year I believe (so 12 years ago), and I didn't order. It doesn't really matter anyway. I don't do the seafood thing.

I tried sushi with fish in high school and hated it. Just a few weeks ago I tried veggie sushi and loved it. It had cucumber, avocado, and carrot and was splashed with a bit of soy sauce; so freaking good. They gave me a recipe, so I could technically make it any ol' time I want, but I have to admit...

The strawberries bit made me think of smoothies and I'd kill for an ice cold strawberry-banana smoothie right about now.


Or an Oreo blizzard.


Mostly, I can pretend the smoothie is healthier for me, even though I am not too sure it is.
