One thing I learned from my mom a while ago, a bit of healthy eating advice that has stuck with me, is how to tell if you're making vegetables a focal point of your diet. It has to do with whether the way you prepare them destroys their integrity or not. Steamed vegetables retain their integrity. Green peppers on a pizza with extra cheese have had their integrity destroyed. Ketchup is tomatoes without a shred of integrity. Too much butter even on the steamed veggies is the slippery slope into lost integrity. Where am I going with this? Nowhere. I was just reminded of it today because idahoswede was talking about some rather revolting combinations for Thanksgiving jello molds. As galestorm rightly protested, peaches and pecans and celery together in jello molds is just wrong. So is coconut and anything in jello. ew. The integrity, is, like, SO destroyed, dude.

I'm ready with my surprise but I'm afraid that if I reveal it now no one will notice because you are all glued to CNN or Fox News or whatever online outlet you are marking time in front of waiting for polls to close and vote counts to start rolling in. Personally, I suspect that we won't know before tomorrow night AT THE EARLIEST. The polls in Alaska don't even close until 1 A.M. Hawaii's don't close until 11 p.m.

I don't know if I should wait a week or go ahead now. Are you drooling with anticipation or am I barely rating a yawn? Plus, I'm running the risk of hyping up this surprise well past the attention it actually merits. Hmmm...dilemmas, dilemmas.

AHHH - SHOW US NOW SHOW US NOW. I'm not glued to the election.

(ok, I am. Just don't tell anyone - YES I was glued to the Canadian election too)

But still - THE SURPRISE!

I promise not to expect anything too much.


Don't forget, butter and/or salt will destroy the integrity and, as you so charmingly phrased it, it's a slippery slope.

well i for one am not glued to the tv or to the election. however it turns out, daily life for us in sweden probably wont change. im looking forward to your surprise :)

I await with semi-bated breath. ;)

Show us! :) Our nerves are already strained by waiting for the election results. :) *tickle*

Me want surprise so bad grammar skills failing!

*eyes bulge in unflattering excitement*

So is coconut and anything in jello. ew.

Agreed! I'm a purist. The only thing I'd allow to be stuck in my Jello is Bill Cosby, and he better have a damn good reason for being in there.

That guy! He's always getting stuck in the damn jello! DOH
