Late Night Lunacy (i love alliteration!)

I think every bag of Cheetos should come with 2 little fingertip gloves for your pointy finger and thumb. So you don't get the orange fingers. I don't mind the orange fingers at home but at work I feel kinda conspicuous sucking it off. So the gloves would be nice.

Sushi made it's debut at the jobsite cafeteria today. The California rolls tempted me (when I eat it, I know it's "fake" sushi but I can't handle unheated fish) and when I got a little heavy with my wasabi hand, I damn near choked to death. In a vain attempt to put out the fire I ate one of those pieces of ginger (which I now know are the parsley of the oriental dining world. not tasty but pretty on the plate) And it tasted just like my sea salt body scrub smells. And that made me gag and want to rub it on my elbows to exfoliate them. I don't know why, but whenever I see those thinly sliced ginger pieces I have the urge to lay them across my eyelids and walk around looking like I have no eyes just to freak people out. I bet the ginger would burn the eyes though.

Payday is only 4 days away! Woo hoo! I may have mentioned that when I started my new schedule in October that I lost my 15% shift differential and was getting nothing. In December I found out I should be getting 10% and that's showing up on my checks now. I am so pleased. Baby needs a new pair of shoes, you know? And I need to pound down some credit card debt.

Maybe salmon across the eyes? Or ham?

That's funny about those slices of ginger, cause here in L.A. they are VERY tasty! I use to use them in all sorts of strange dishes, cause I liked the flavor so much. Go figure! (lol)

Deb said...

They (Cheetos) could just attach a little baggie with two finger condoms. Really you should write the company a letter and send pics.

Titus said...

Remember those tiny condoms they give away as joke gifts at bridal showers? Those are actually small fingertip gloves hich are used mainly by high-end watch makers. You should get yourself a box of those things. Such a fount of knowledge you have as a friend, what would you do without me :_) ?

Joey Polanski said...

You jus gave me a idea fer a new invention: th Cheeto gun. Youll nevr evn hafta put yer hand in th bag -- cept t LOAD th suckr. Course, firin Cheetos from a gun inta yer mouf at werk woud probly be more distractin than suckin orangy cheese powdr offa yer fingrs.

Hmmm ... mabey sompm like a PEZ dispencr -- but wit Cheetos.

Michael said...

Yeah but watching you suck the cheese off your fingers is half the fun!

Dirk the Feeble said...

Cafeteria sushi? Oh, the horror.

Amy said...

Oooo, I love california rolls... love love love almost as much as I love wasabi!!!

Now the whole "pickled ginger" thing? Not so much... it just doesn't do it for me, but my husband loves it.

Go figure.

Anne Arkham - The ham is doable. I can't wait for my next trip to the deli. Photos will be coming soon to a blog near you.

OOLOTH - I might be able to eat it if I hadn't had the ginger smelling bodyscrub first.

Deb - That's what I was thinking. Just attach them like a watch on a chain.

Titus - I had no idea that's what those were! It is very helpful to have a friend such as yourself. Stick around!

Joey Polanski - If the gun were tucked under my desk then it wouldn't be too distracting. I'd need good aim though.

Michael - It's much more fun to watch me pick my nose.

Armaedes - That was my first thought but I was pleasantly surprised.

Amy - The wasabi kicks ass. Pickled ginger won't ever do anything for me. Maybe your husband has underdeveloped taste buds.

Mike said...

You know those fingertip gloves are not a bad idea. I had a bag of cheetos a little while ago and I just notice that my keyboard is orange.

Chuck said...

I'm down with you on the fingertip gloves...I hate trying to get that shit off my 5 yr old fingers! Mmmmm sushi...how'd I love some of that...maybe this weekend. I've been there with too much wasabi...that shit can kill you, but it's sooooo good in moderation!

bekah said...

The finger gloves are a genius idea. But what if the gloves have that nasty latex taste? I wouldn't want them then.

MollyNormal said...

Would you please take a picture of yourself with thinly sliced ginger pieces on your eyelids for us? I would make a donation to the "Poud Down Chickie's Credit Card Debt" fund to see that. LOL

BTW about the Cheetos - try eating them with a fork, like I do. Just dump some in a bowl, then stab each one and bring it to your mouth. No muss, no fuss.

Chickie said...

Mike - What I hate is how the Cheeto grease makes the keys slippery.

Chuck - I think the wasabi overdose burnt some of my nose hair. It is so tasty.

Bekah - Well, you'd have to do a pre-lick first and get the nasty taste off the glove and then eat the chips to get the taste out of your mouth.

Mollynormal - If I charged for the photos then I'd feel like I was prostituting myself. I'll whore them out for free though :) I'm thinking of putting ham on them and then letting Tiny & Stinky eat it off.

I have never heard of eating them with a fork. That would probably look better at work than tipping the bag back.

BTExpress said...

The first time I saw wasabi on my plate I had no idea what it was and took a big bite. I don't have to tell you how that turned out.

Midwestern City Boy said...

I never ingest things that I don't know what it is or where it came from. And I have to admit that I've never eaten anything that you talked about. Although I have actually seen some sushi.

I imagine that 10% pay raise is sweet. Losing a shift premium sucks but working days does have its advantages. The worst is when you work nights and don't get paid extra.

Chickie said...

BTExpress - That reminds me of the one time I ate oysters and didn't know that you should only use a dab of horseradish. I took a spoonful.

MCB - I'll usually try a bite of just about anything. I figure if it's nasty it can be spat out.

It was nice finding that I get some kind of shift differential. I'd wanted to ask other people on my team if they got it but didn't want to seem nosy. It's a good thing I finally brought it up!
