eggs and hickeys and the internizzle...a grody combination

For some reason whenever I make egg salad, I use no less than 4 bowls. It seems almost impossible to use less. First I boil the eggs in a pot. Let's count that as one. The when they're done I pour cold water over them and let them sit in more cold water for awhile. That can be done in the same pot. Still one. But then comes the shelling. I try and condense my container usage and get one clean bowl to put the shelled eggs in. There was definitely a time where I had one bowl for the shell-less eggs and one for the shells themselves. This is in addition to the original bowl the eggs were in. Then, when the shelling process is finished, I need yet another bowl to mash up the eggs in. I almost always pick a big bowl to allow for lots of mashing and mixing in the mayonnaise and the secret flavors. Then it's finally done, but I need a final bowl to put the egg salad in. This could be either a bowl or a tupperware. Either way, that's four bowls at the very least. I'm sure there are ways to condense, or make this process easier in some way, but meh. It works fine. 

In other news, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do the email subscription feed thing on my blog the correct way. I have done it wrong three times in the last 20 minutes. Sara? Tara? Any tips? Want to just do it for me please? I would like to get that going here because I have been meaning to move my main blog from myspace to here anyhow, and now is as good a time as any, eh?

One last thing. Today one of my students, a kind of naughty and inappropriate one, asked me why I was wearing a scarf. I told him it was "part of the whole outfit," to which he replied "oh, so it's not to cover a hickey?" Goddamn...my response time on that one was probably sub par, since all I was able to do was stare at him for about 10 seconds, wondering how a 13 year old knows what a hickey is, and say to him "That's inappropriate, dude. Totally inappropriate." I'm getting so old.

dude the email subscriber thing is definitely a pain to get set up, i couldn't get it going for a while either. let me see if i can remember or figure it out again and i'll email you. i like that egg salad picture a lot, is it from your phone? it makes it look all mysterious or sneaky or something.

i hope you're enjoying that cranberry pomegranate juice in the background that we bought together. :)

Also, just toss the peeled eggs back into the pot with the cool water. You don't need a separate bowl for that- unless you want it. :)

Haha! I can't believe you didn't fall off your piano bench laughing about the hickey comment.
I know i would have. This is why I would not be good working with kids...I would EGG them on too much.
That's right, EGG!
