five foods to change the world.

I’ve been on campus for an hour, and haven’t done any work yet. Why, you ask? Because of the Top Five Favorite Foods Game. I’m not sure if I have talked about this game on the blog yet, but today I played with my “bosses.” The rules vary from game to game, but for the purposes of this game, categories (i.e. Mexican food) and drinks were forbidden. So here’s a peek into my life (or just my Gmail):

Are these foods discretionary?  i.e. Are all of my nutritional needs already met?  If so, then my list is as follows:

5. Broccoli is tied with Soy Sauce
4. Macaroni and Cheese
3. Garlic
2. Bacon
1. Krispy Kreme donuts

Crap.  I forgot coffee, beer, and mayonnaise.

Yes, totally discretionary. There is a different game about which foods you would eat if you could only eat five for the rest of your life. Go and I think you cheated because you can’t have a tie. Other than that, good choices.

Predictable?!?   PREDICTABLE?!?  At least I listed REAL foods!  Broccoli?  Soy sauce?  Garlic?  These aren’t even side dishes!  BLAH!

Fine, I’ll remove soy sauce and garlic.  But broccoli stays.  And I get unlimited beer and coffee.    

5. Broccoli
4. Pot stickers
3. Mac and Cheese
2. Bacon
1. Krispy Kreme Donuts

Perhaps this is why I’m still not done with my paper.

    Um, garlic definitely counts. And it can be a side. It can even be served on its own; just yesterday, I sat happily watching very old Grey’s Anatomy and eating some delicious sauteed garlic from a mug. It is perfectly legit.

    Also, Mal, I noticed some changes to your top 5, and it made me realize how out of touch we are. I, too, have made a change, and you had no idea! Don’t worry, mine is just temporary, but while I am in Argentina, dulce de leche replaces cheese. Get excited to come down here and change your list some more! I’m POSITIVE that beef will make it on there. Finally.
