    My Day is Fulfilled, I can go home now.

    I spy my missing coffee cup and VOILA ... there's something in it.

    <Jaws theme starts up>

    Thinking back ... hmmm when was the last time I used this cup.

    Last time there was a break before the semester started .... and the dreaded word "August" appears out of no where ...

    So armed with that knowledge I carefully pick up the cup (has a lid on it btw) and walk it back to the kitchen and pop the lid off of it and OH DEAR LORD - SOMETHING HAD GROWN ON IT, IN IT, UP THE SIDES OF THE CUP AND ON THE LID ...

    PEEEEEEE-UUUUUUUUUU!!!

    Quickly I stomp out those green blobs of mold in the the garbage and toss the cup into the now running scalding hot water ---- grab the dishsoap and, standing back a couple of feet, land a stream of dish soap on that cup like I was trying to light a grill that wouldn't light with my bottle of lighter fluid. DIE!

    Ahh, got the cup back to normal - smells much better.

    However, the kitchen - well I basically peeled the wallpaper off those walls.



    And I can hear everyone's exclamation of the horrible smell coming from back there.



    My Day is Fulfilled, I can go home now!

    I've had a water bottle (with some water left in it) sitting on my desk at work for a few months now, since before I got some nice new (clear) polypropylene bottles. I'm afraid to open it and see what lurks inside.

    Tude's workplace seems like it would make a pretty good biology laboratory.

    My old boss had a coffe mug (no lid) sitting on his desk forever with an inch of coffee in it.... it grew stuff in the bottom, and started creeping up the sides... I have no idea how he looked at it everyday and didn't clean it out.

    I must say though the best stuff was red mold on my oatmeal that smelled like barf.

    Oh ---- that will not be forgotten for a long time. And my co-workers won't let me forget either

    <shrug> T-man likes what he likes. I was only referring to the mold that he posted up regarding his dad's filter. I wasn't dissin' his particular taste in coffee, as are you. <indifferent shrug>

    T-man, FWIW, one's own tastes in wine and coffee are all about what is pleasing to oneself. Not what someone else thinks it should be. Trust Vega on this....

    Hell, I've been exposed to enough food/beverage "snobs" to last a lifetime and then some. And I've learned to stand my ground on what I like, without intimidation from those who mistake a sudden self-awakening with a sense of real taste distinction. And I don't exactly have a founderling's taste for food or drink, as old as I am, and as much as I've experienced very fine drink and dining in my lifetime....

    Heh. For all you who feel so sorely offended by my obvious response in favor of seekin' one's own tastes (which, for many of us will truly be a journey of a lifetime), I must ask "Why?". Jes' sayin'.

    And, for those of you who will respond, especially those who respond with an attitude of "heaven help you" or a "gasp" or a "fark you" attitude, well, we'll know it's not about gastronomy or oenophilia but about your egos....

    If you food/beverage "snobs" truly want to make a difference (vs being "right"), why not simply make some suggestions to others who are less "versed" in these fine gastronomical arts, and let it go at that? They will either learn to make subtle distinctions, or they won't. What's it to you? <very curious Vega look>

    Heh. Can't always tell with you, KT, you funster, you! You tend to jump right in with either your opinon, or with a rather provocative stance.

    My apologies. This was obviously all in jest. My bad.

    Sorry....I know I'm one of those enigmas surrounded by a riddle and wrapped in a bacon slice.

    edit: Even when I take that stance, I'm still just teasin' 90% of the time.

    Heh. Funny, that, KT. I have little patience for people who play games, especially 90% of the time. Yeah, I know. Foo is different. But in my RL, I'm tryin' to find the really mature men, vs those who play games 90% of the time. Forgive me if my radar went off! <laughing>

    Edit: Taerom, baybuh, you will always be able to find a nice hug with me. Vega promise.
