I actually started this exceedingly interesting blog entry about dating, but... well, I didn't like it, so I deleted it. So, instead I thought I would write a cornucopia of thoughts.
Thought #1: I really like oranges. They're delicious. I mean, there are obvously some oranges that are juicier or tastier than others, but basically, I like oranges. In general. Typically. Mmmm... oranges.
Thought #2: Aren't argyle socks great? Overall, I like the argyle pattern. We had this wrapping paper with an argyle pattern, and I really liked it. I would like to own an argyle-patterned skirt sometime. They need to sell some. I also like paisley.
Thought #3: So who really invented spaghetti? I mean, the obvious answer is: the Italians. So... I guess that is the answer, but the question should maybe be, who actually invented the noodle? Was it the Italians or the Chinese? ...or was it someone from elsewhere, but it never caught on in that location and then it caught on in China or Italy?
Thought #4: I enjoy literature written by Shel Silverstein. I am reminded of him because he has this poem called:
Spaghetti, spaghetti, all over the place,
Up to my elbows-up to my face,
Over the carpet and under the chairs,
Into the hammock and wound round the stairs,
Filling the bathtub and covering the desk,
Making the sofa a mad mushy mess.
The party is ruined, I'm terribly worried,
The guests have all left (unless they're all buried).
I told them, "Bring presents." I said, "Throw confetti."
I guess they heard wrong
'Cause they all threw spaghetti!
