popcorn frenzy

Mood:  hungry
Now Playing: Channel Five is playing 'World's Wildest Police Videos'**

** = "The Russian police drag the ruthless renegade from the cloudy chaos to spend his next summers in Siberia.", etc.

I thought maybe Blade 2 was the worst movie in the world, but then tonight I watched Bulletproof Monk. It must be forty years since Yul Brynner made this sort of cack popular, surely SFX should have moved on? I shall stick to enjoying the re-runs of Monkey in future.
Ate two whole super-large bags of popcorn, then tried to start in on a tub of ice-cream but felt too sick to continue. I feel like a pincushion waiting to be popped.
I'd like to congratulate my bra on catching humonguous amounts of popcorn. I can't imagine how it must feel to be a man, and unable to catch the stray popcorn bits in your cleavage. You'd just be really hungry in the cinema a lot, I guess. Unless you were a really really fat bloke. And even then, you'd probably not choose to accentuate it with low cut tops.
I used to think men ate the foul cinema hotdogs as part of some transparent inferiority complex; now I realise the poor sods are merely searching for nutrients.
I had wanted to try out some sort of sad singleton lifestyle, where I deliberately ate too many girly things, while crying into my white wine. No joy. Too muntered from yesterday to even face the white wine, and all the ice cream companies were ready for me, and filled their tubs with disgusting stuff that oughtn't to be allowed in ice cream. (cookie dough - fucking foul stuff. Whose idea was that? Someone invent a cheese and chicken wings flavour ice cream, then we can start talking.)
Reminder to self: don't wear cropped tops when your navel is laced with cat scratches. At best you end up looking like a Russian immigrant in the video store.
Cheers to Duch, for ringing me to say ex-DH cried herself to sleep.
Mind you, cheers to me. Cheers to me.

Hey hon.. I've not been around all weekend, and just managed to catch up. I'm sorry to hear things aren't going too well at the moment... If you need a chat, with someone who has just been through the same sorta thing, I'm here.. You've done the same for me, and I'd love to be able to repay the favour.

Just email me (you have the address, right?), and I'll give you a call.

Thinking of you, and hoping all will be ok.

((((((((((huge hugs))))))))))))

I KNOW that I posted a comment! And yet, no comment in sight. *sigh*

I liked the first half of Bulletproof Monk, cause I love kung-fu. But as soon as they brought out the TORTURE Machine, they lost me. But then, I will attempt to love anything that was once a comic book. I am that much of a comic book nerd.

And since I've never eaten a hot dog at a theater, does that mean I have a superiority complex? OOh. And what does eating a chili dog with lots of ketchup mean?

Cheese and chicken wings? As ice-cream?

Can I just ask... when did you tastebuds die? :P

Kung-fu films are gash, I must prepare a derisory blogging to slate it in the way it deserves. If anyone tries any of that sh*t on me I'd just cut their 'peter-pan' wires and laugh as their pelvis cracks onto the floor. Try and high-kick after that monk-boy.

Liked the pikey scratchings, you should get some fresh ones for bingo, then you'll really look the part. I see you getting some pikey public hugs above too, get a room ;P

Hope things get better for you, I know they will eventually even if it doesn't seem that way now (add more cliches here, but it's true). If you want a quick cheer then a mug of beans with a sausage in it does wonders, especially if you carve the sausage into a spoon-shape.

Perhaps it means you're on the blob?

( squeals that Paul, whose blog is ***ace*** read my blog! )

I'm dreading The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I love the comic..... shudder.

You don't belong to the sweet plus salt collective, then? I love salt popcorn mixed with sweet, jam and cheese sarnies, mango chutney on my chicken. Cheese ice cream (yeah, there's no way I'm about to try making it) would probably be disgusting, but the taste sensation works *in my head*.
Cookie dough doesn't work in my head or in my mouth. Ewwwww!

You think that if I had a sossie in beans there's the slightest chance in hell that it wouldn't end up as an octodog?

No... I belong to the "I like my taste buds, and would like to keep them" collective. Sweet things mixed with salt things is all wrong... so, so wrong...

Dadnabbit, now I'm going to have to make a list.
Cheese and chutney.
Sweet pickle and cabbage.
Turkey and cranberry sauce.
Pork chops and apple sauce (or applesauce if you're American, I guess).
Peanut butter and jam sarnies. In fact, don't get me started on the sarnies. Crisps and any sweet filling, ever, ever, ever.
Sweet and sour chicken.
Sushi and 'seaweed'.
Tomato ketchup and bacon.
In fact ketchup flavoured crisps.
Waldorf salad and spicy dressing.
Tiramisu (well, the way my mum used to make it in the 80s, with cheeeeeeeese).
Sultanas in your curry.
Peaches and cashew nuts in your chinese fried chicken.
Chocice and chips.
And the ultimate ultimate sarnie: PB, jam, and melted marshmallow spread.

The only items in that list that I'd class as edible are:

Sweet and sour chicken.
Sushi and seaweed.
Tomato ketchup and bacon.

But, you see, ketchup isn't sweet, it's spicy, so that doesn't count, and neither seaweed nor sushi are sweet, they just... are :P

Ever made a carrot soup that isn't sweet enough, and chucked a load of ketchup in to sweeten it? (sounds disgusting, but works.)

I was a bit distressed myself to seee how I went from sushi to bacon. Ew!

Fruit = pudding.

Don't feck with my main course!!

You'll make me blush with that kind of talk!

Anywise, I agree with you on sweet and salty, to an extent. I love me a milky way candy bar and popcorn. Pure. Heavenly. Bliss.

Pork chops and applesauce! All the way! Pizza and ranch dressing. Sweet and sour pickles. PB, jam and melted marshmallow? That sounds both deadly and wonderful. Hmmm... hot dogs and fries. With lots of ketchup! This is a good topic. Sweet and sour...

I'd laugh if I hadn't just eaten more chops in cranberry and onion chutney than my sides have space for...... owwwwwww....

Hmmm. A fruit is much more than a pudding in my lingo. Can a pudding sing along to any given Barbra Streisand tune?

I rest my case.

Oh my god. That octodog is the coolest and scariest thing I have ever seen. Imagine putting green ketchup on it and then serving it up to a kid! Hahahahahaahahahaha!

I have never eaten carrot soup, but carrots are sweet anyhow...

From fish to pork? Dunno about those kinds of things...

If you reduce em (the carrots, in a sauce), they're super sweet, but if you dilute em in a soup, they need a ton of sugar to taste like the ones the nice Mr Tesco does.
I have no idea how I came to know this.
