Wow! This will be my third post this week. That has got to be some kind of record for me.
As a student of the Class of 2016, here are a few of the things that they listed for me:
3. The Biblical sources of terms such as “Forbidden Fruit,” “The writing on the wall,” “Good Samaritan,” and “The Promised Land” are unknown to most of them.
I have heard of every. single. one. of. these. stories. Unless you don’t go to church I think you’d have heard of all of these stories too.
13. They can’t picture people actually carrying luggage through airports rather than rolling it.
Ugh. I wish rolling suitcases were never invented. They make me feel weak and incapable of carrying my own things. I normally just carry the darn thing. It brings so much attention when you roll over a bump or crack in the floor!
15. While still fans of music on radio, they often listen to it on their laptops or replace it with music downloaded onto their MP3s and iPods.
Actually, I don’t really listen to music very often, but when I do, it is always on the radio. Never on my iPod touch. There are more important things to take up space on my beloved Apple gadget. Like myfitnesspal. Or Christmas Cookie Decorator…. (Yes, I do realize the irony of those statements).
20. Exposed bra straps have always been a fashion statement, not a wardrobe malfunction to be corrected quietly by well-meaning friends.
If my friends let me walk around with my bra straps hanging out, I would be so angry. This is still a major wardrobe malfunction in my opinion, and I will always tell someone.
26. Having made the acquaintance of Furby at an early age, they have expected their toy friends to do ever more unpredictable things.
As stated previously, Furbies creep me out. However, one Christmas I did get this awesome electronic dog who could basically do whatever I wanted. She was my first real pet. I was so upset when she
broke went to heaven.
27. Outdated icons with images of floppy discs for “save,” a telephone for “phone,” and a snail mail envelope for “mail” have oddly decorated their tablets and smart phone screens.
I remember floppy discs! I wasn’t born yesterday…. I’ve never actually used one, but I can recall the dozens of floppy disks that would scatter my Professor Dad’s desk at any given moment. And sometimes I would even get to keep an “old” one because I thought that they were so cool!
47. Before they purchase an assigned textbook, they will investigate whether it is available for rent or purchase as an e-book.
Again, no. I cannot stand doing homework or reading textbooks on the internet. Hard-copies are and always will be my favorite mode of book reading.
56. They have always enjoyed school and summer camp memories with a digital yearbook.
Seriously? Where do they come up with stuff? I was on the Yearbook Staff in High School, officially in charge of some of the “Club” pages. Yes, we did the work on a computer, and yes, it was mostly in color, but NO. NO. NO. We do not have a digital yearbook. That would have been awesome!
59. They know many established film stars by their voices on computer-animated blockbusters.
Yes. This is a constant competition between my younger brother and me. Whoever names the actor first
wins is just automatically cooler. It really impresses my parents when I can pick out an actor just by their voice from the other room…
68. They watch television everywhere but on a television.
True. I don’t have a television in my dorm room so I am forced to watch delayed episodes on the likes of Netflix and Hulu. Oh the horror!
Today just also happens to be Friday, and another weekend that I am going home. This time, it’s to pick up a few things that I forgot last weekend (tennis shoes and baking powder), and also to get my dreaded allergy shot (for environmental allergies).
Since my first part of this post had nothing to do with food, and since this is a food-type blog, I figured that I should do another Friday Food Finds!
To read more about FFF, here are my past three previous posts:
First up is a simple recipe that I used to make all of the time before my food allergies. It comes from Spoonful of Sugar Free. I’ll probably replace the cocoa with carob powder and try to make it vegan. Bitter chocolate cake:
Something off of Neverhomemaker’s awesome list of pumpkin recipes. Maybe a variation on her pumpkin lasagna?
The last recipe idea for today features vegetables because I feel obligated to share something green and nutritious:
Zucchini bread muffins (with some substitutions) from Talk Less-Say More:
Any recipes that have caught your eye lately? Let me know!
It’s really hard for me to find recipes that don’t need adapting, so any tips are appreciated. Here are my criteria just in case you have a recipe in mind: MUST BE egg-free, milk-free, gluten-free (no oats), peanut-free, corn-free, celery-free, tomato-free. For the time being, I am also avoiding all nuts/oil/seeds, beans, and a few fruits/veggies that cause me stomach problems.
If you find a recipe that meets some or most of that criteria, post a comment on here! Also, if you see something SUPER AWESOME that is a great “concept” post a comment. I love experimenting in the kitchen!
Go to the Mindset List and find the year that you graduated (or will graduate) from college. Pick one of the numbers and report back here as to why it is totally TRUE or totally FALSE!
What are some of your Friday Food Finds? Haven’t really thought about it? How about next week you post a FFF post, link back here and we can have a food party!!
