Wow yesterday's blog must have really been boring...

Anyway, yesterday, for the first time in my 32 years, I ate crab legs. In the past year, I have had ribs, steak and now crab legs for the first time. The ribs and steak part is easy to explain, since my parents raised both my brother and I to be vegetarians. We ate chicken and fish, but no beef or pork. Once I got to college, I would have a hot dog or a hamburger every now and then, but for the most part I stayed true to how I was raised. Once I was on my own, it was the same way for the most part..I'd eat pepperoni and sausage on pizza, and an occasional hot dog or hamburger, and I didn't go all willy nilly with it. Well I have broken down those barriers since then..but my unwillingness to eat crab legs had much more to do with me being lazy, than it had to with my learned eating habits. I just had no desire to work that hard for a sliver of meat...well my friend convinced me to open my mind and my mouth(pause)to crab legs, and I was most certainly glad I did. I wasn't precise with my leg breaking technique, and I wasn't always willing to suck all the meat out of the leg(I wonder why), but overall I enjoyed the experience. I alternated between eating just the meat, and dipping it into a vinegar/apple juice/seasoned salt mix, which was delicious. By no means am I ready for an all out crab fest, but this is a start. Now I need to taste ham...

My intern was out yesterday, and man was it a beautiful experience. No half assed stories that have no rhyme, reason or common sense. No music fights(all of which I have won by the way), no giving me complicated handshakes upon leaving, just peace and quiet. And, best of all, he actually followed proper protocol by calling someone to say he was going to be out..mind you, he didnt call or email me, but he did call my supervisor which is better, but not really what I like. He spends 90% of his day working with me, he needs to call me..and as I'm typing this I was received another forwarded emailing saying he will be out today as well. The party continues..

i like crab legs, its the whole crab that i can't be bothered with...
opening the shell and scraping out the gooey gross bits just ruins the whole experience

also, you and the intern should just kiss already.
