Rice

RICE, n. The Mongolian substitute for corned beef.

2009 Update: A grain of good fortune in a pot of poverty, such as may be used to bless a wedding or demean a marshmallow.

And, if I'm not mistaken, happy birthday to Jamie Dawn! I don't know how old Jamie Dawn actually is, but you can tell by looking at her that she looks much younger.

Rice was served with every meal where Mrs. Jim grew up (Louisiana). We had potatoes with each meal in Nebraska. Now the whole U.S. eats soy beans and chemicals.
..
You sure were up early this morning. I was just going to bed then.
Or was that your situation? If so becareful as you as a working person can't afford to get your days and nights mixed up.
..
We had rice still in the hard to clean areas of my Thunderbird for several years after our wedding. Our friends provided an impromptu rice shower as a fertility rite. Guess it may have worked.

Rice, China's contribution to the Hungarian stuffed cabbage.

Kellogg's Rice Krispie Squares are a mighty tasty treat! I'll bet Jamie Dawn wouldn't mind gittin' some of them for her birthday. ...

Jim, you live in Texas. You can drive over to Arkansas in your Thunderbird and bring her big ol' pan with few a candles and a big red bow on top!

RICE, n. pl. The plural of rye. An explanation that would be less dubious if the Chinese had not neglected the art of making rye whiskey.

;)

RICE n. food -- everything else is just a condiment

Don't even think about serving any kind of meal on this island without heaps of rice. If there's no rice on the table, dinner isn't ready yet.

Will do, Sauerkraut.

Jim, my days and nights are equally profitable lately.

A blessing on the blessing of a cabbage, Ariel. If only men could be worthy of stuffing.

TLP, I thought it was Really, Intensive Care is Extra.

Bear, you have to rasp it.

Good suggestion, Karen. How about it, Jim?

And they're still trying to catch up with the Irish, Amoeba.

Quilly, I look forward to your explaining salmon to us.

Tilden, what better way to confuse someone?

Cooper, do you suppose a diet that consists primarily of sushi leads to surfing?

Boy, that is a sticky krispy.

Cheers, C&B!

*throws rice of Jamie Dawn* Covered in truffles of course!

rice, n. too small to be held between two sticks! Spoon it up, baby!

weirsdo said...

You do know that it is no longer environmentally correct to throw rice? Apparently it swells in birds' stomachs. So one now throws the more prosaic birdseed.

Doug said...

Good advice, Minka. Or just eat a potato.

Weirsdo, as you can imagine, I don't get invited to a lot of weddings.

NicoleB said...

Green rice fields in front of your door are lovely...

...if they don't use fertilizer made of human leftovers....

Doug said...

Nicole, that strikes me as a very important caveat.

weirsdo said...

I'm not invited; I'm hired.

Doug said...

And, as a Unitarian, still scold the party for unsustainable rituals, I suppose.

weirsdo said...

That is exactly the kind of hippie-dippy behavior that drove me from the church. No, this seems to be a widespread shift covering even the most conservative of denominations.

Doug said...

Just a thought- I always assumed the father in your Novella was based on your own father. But, perhaps, even a closer relation.

Jamie Dawn said...

Thank You for the b-day mention.

:-)

Doug said...

But of course, JD. By the way, I got an email from a friend that they figured my comment meant I thought you looked old. However that sentence reads, it was meant as a sincere compliment, which I trust you know.

weirsdo said...

I think I was channeling Dad for that last comment and the novella, but he was not as ridiculous as Bennett.
These comments are like the rice. Alien to the environment and swelling alarmingly. Sorry.

Doug said...

Ha, Weirsdo!
