See, there should be, but lots of people use peanut oil these days too, which doesn't help at all.

I suppose most of the neutered tourist food is safe for Ax... Stuff like lemon chicken and sweet and sour pork.

I'm listening to Rise Up in protest of its getting voted out of Survivor already.

Shame!

Thanks! I actually don't tell anyone, just to see who remembers and who bothers to find out. I don't think it's all that important anyway to be honest.
I normally remember January birthdays once told, because almost all of my closest friends plus myself have had January birthdays. Otherwise? I'm useless.

Ever since I was 14, I've had arrangements with most of my friends that we don't give each other presents, so birthdays have been very lowkey in my world and I don't find them that important either. My friend Sam's birthday is 14/01; mine is 17/01. I gave him $20 ... and got exactly the same note back from him three days later. That prompted the "no presents" arrangement.

Eggs is the other one.

Peanuts seem to be screwing me over the most.

Maj., you need to come from a culture that isn't trying to kill me with its food!

My favourite date ever was 02/02/2000. It was the first time all numbers in the date had been even since 08/08/888! I thought that was really neat.
I made no allegations, I merely asked a question

*thinks*
Hey, that is pretty cool.

I'm honestly baffled by that. Very few people actually posted that they were voting for Rise Up, and it's rare for a thread to be so unreflective of the poll. And not a single person posted WHY they were voting off Rise Up.

If you ask me, it has more of a case to be on JT than TTYW and - dare I say it - ISHFWILF.

Oh yeah. We've started using peanut oil at home, since we found out that olive oil really shouldn't be used for cooking

Lemon chicken...

One of the food places at uni used to do something that they called lemon chicken... I'm fairly sure that neither lemon nor chicken were in any way involved in its production, but DAMN, whatever combination of chemicals and flavourings and batter they used hit all the right taste buds... There would be queues every Wednesday when they served it...

The more I listen to ISHFWILF, the more I feel about it compared to, say, Luminous Times or Spanish Eyes.

Wait, why shouldn't olive oil be used for cooking? And d'you mean like huge amounts, or just greasing-pan sort of amounts?

Whatever's wrong with olive oil? Now, maybe my love of Italian cooking has left me biased, but you can use it for just about any purpose.

Today, I'll pay that.

And I think it may have suffered a bit from not so many people having heard it, perhaps...? I dunno.


That bass...
Is it a bad sign that I wondered if they had a guest bassist in for that?

Surprise me more often, U2.

YES. I've grown very tired of ISHFWILF. I feel like it doesn't reach any kind of pay-off, and the band had better material lying around that they could've put on the album.

I've no idea! Most of the JT bonus tracks seem to be suffering, really - and yet Love You Like Mad and Levitate are stll hanging around.

I know Andrew hates Rise Up. I can't understand why.

I keep wondering what they did with Adam after October ...
