Ilyda-- If I tell you I feel absolutely no loyalty at all towards the Michigan sports teams, will you still be my friend? Unless you're against the Classics Department, too
, in which case I withdraw my hand of friendship. *shifty eyes*
I could be really mean and say "I Don't Give a D*** for the Whole State of Michigan." It would be really easy, since there is a whole song devoted to this sentiment. (Heck, there's a whole BAND devoted to this. Look up The Dead Schembechlers and keep a veeery healthy sense of humor, cause otherwise it's pretty offensive, and it's all
extremely un-ToS-able.) However, considering the fact that I have known you prior to this to be an upstanding member of the non-Ann-Arbor part of the country, I shall have to agree to your proposal of friendship. I can hear my fellow graduates shrieking now, but they'll live.
This does not keep you from my mocking though.
No, now that you are my friend, you are even more subject to the mocking and the pointing and the laughing. Foolish Sil, to have willingly brought yourself into my clutches!
*Ilyda takes off the cloak of melodramatic Michigan mocking and joins the rest of the conversation* Mashed potatoes? I've never been that much of a fan of potatoes to begin with. I have found one way I like them, in a Dutch dish called Hutspot, which I have been able to kinda/sorta mish-mash together on my side of the ocean. But otherwise, no interest on my end. Definitely more for all of you!
Rwhen--Cooking for a vegan can be quite interesting if no one else in the house is. I know my cousin, who is also a vegan, was here for Thanksgiving, and we had a separate tof-urkey and mushroom gravy for her (it was actually pretty good). However, I know when she came back from university a vegan, my aunt, who had so far acquiesced to cooking for her vegetarian daughter (in addition to my uncle, who does not eat seafood or foul), said that she would pretty much have to make her own food from there on in. Especially now that she's living on her own, she's become a pretty good cook.
