Reggo, if he's not awake, he might sleep soundly while the house runs away to join the circus.

I can't believe either how people can survive on pre-made dinners and other foodstuffs. Real fresh food is better. Sometimes I have something in the freezer as well, but that's even homemade!

Before every university semester, I make a point of baking a stack of muffins and cooking some lasagnes and stuff like that, so that I can store them in the freezer as quick lunches and dinners for when I'm studying and don't want to break my rhythm by spending half an hour cooking or whatever. Works pretty well.

I really miss my childhood in New Zealand - I lived in a small seaside country town, and so much stuff that I now just buy from the supermarket was fresh back then. Tomato sauce? Made with tomatoes from my mother's garden. Apples? There was an apple tree out the back. Strawberry, raspberry, blackberry jam? Made by my grandmother with berries from her garden. Eggs? From my best friend's chickens (not that I can eat egg, but Mum loved it). Meats? The local butcher knew what we liked and got it from local farmers whenever possible. You can't beat that sort of thing.

Now I'm hungry and nostalgic ...

She thinks something could set on fire because it happened at her brother's house once. There is a precedent, anyway.

Ah, the good old days... Nostalgia sets in every now and then, especially when it comes to food, or music or things like that

Wow, yeah, that does seem like a bit of an odd career choice. I'm currently hoping I can talk one of my friends out of being ... well, he can't be a teacher with the qualifications he's got anyway, so I guess a teacher's aide or something. I mean, we need all the teachers we can get, but he's the LAST person who should be dealing with children. HE'S AFRAID OF TOMATO SAUCE FOR FUCK'S SAKE. He's one of those people who's about to turn 21 and has been kept in cotton wool by hyper-religious, mentally unstable parents his entire life.

That is weird indeed... Hopefully he'll make sudden mental change regarding food, otherwise he's really doomed. I mean, when he doesn't really care for food or eating healthy, aspiring to become a chef overseas is a big choice to make.

So when Oluwabukola says he's just waiting until he becomes a prince and then he can pay me back, this is legit?

Hey, MJ, I just noticed your custom user title. I don't suppose it is in any way a reference to this little incident? I studied that last semester at university, and funnily enough it came up in conversation when I saw the ophthalmologist on Wednesday.
