Why'd you have your cat scanned?

susan said...

@Immi! No Brussels Sprouts!

@Stephany, I like yours. I wish I was tall!

@Pyrs-my brain was scanned, not my cat!

Bitter Animator said...

I'm curious to know more about the tonsil incident. They didn't really grow back, right? Did they? You could be some sort of medical wonder who regenerates after any trauma. You could grow back your arms. Maybe even a head. You know, if your tonsils did actually grow back.

susan said...

Bitter, I am sorry to disappoint, but when a child is 3 or 4 and they get their tonsils out, sometimes they leave a few cells behind, which grow back because the tonsils are considered immature.

But yes, they really did grow back and yes, i got to eat ice cream (my favorite food) twice.

Gianna said...

hi, susan...

I LOVE brussels sprouts! but Immi...it seems to me there are more haters!

I made a cream of brussel and spinach soup the other day---the recipe is actually on my blog...ha!

I'm not good about doing memes...but I may this time because I'm in a slump as far as coming up with stuff...

thanks for thinking of me and for your fun list.

susan said...

No problem Gianna.

You are the first person I have met who likes Brussel Sprouts.!!!!!!!

Ana said...

I'll do it later. Time of sleeping is totally out of control.

Stephany said...

I like brussel sprouts if they are fresh and steamed, not over-cooked and stinky!

The brussel sprouts remind me of my other favorite steamed veggie, is asparagus with melted butter and garlic, and choppped shallots!

Gianna said...

mmmm...yummy...that sounds killer! (the asparagus)

susan said...

Stephany said...

MMM and how about asparagus smothered in hollandaise!?

susan said...

Oh yum. Stephany, the ex made that divine!

Stephany said...

I LOVE eggs benedict, it's a regular favorite here! I think I would eat anything with hollandaise sauce on it.

Hi Susan,

I just recently found your blog, and I really like it. I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I'm looking forward to reading more about you! And if you care to do so, take a look at my blog (I think they're similar in topic). I hope all is well!

susan said...

@Stephany, I have never had eggs benedict but will on your advice the next time I am at a diner.

@Nos, nice to meet you! Thank you!
