Ladies and gentlemen...Miss Diana Ross!

Here are a couple of lousy photos I took yesterday with my PDA. Here is all the stuff I brought with me. One big suitcase, two computers, my dress clothes, and some provisions. I told you I travel like a diva:

And here is the photo I promised you of my toiletry bag. Look at the size of it. I've got everything in here. What kind of straight man carries all this stuff with him? There are zippered pockets on the other side too.


Hey, I like to be prepared. I'm not getting caught with my pants down. Unless of course I pay extra for that pleasure. Which reminds me, the girl is late.

And for those of you who may have doubted that I actually took notes during the drive, here are pictures of some of them:


Is it any wonder I had trouble deciphering some of them?

Okay, I have an important question for you guys. Bragging rights are at stake here in Northern Alabama. Which is the weirder habit:

A) Dipping chicken tenders in honey mustard and then ketchup before eating them

B) Dipping french fries in a mixure of mayonnaise and ketchup before eating them

There is a poll in my sidebar just above the Notify List sign-up. Please let me know what you think.

Do you have any weird eaing habits?

From what I hear, dipping your french fries in mayo is very european. Even so, I prefer mayo to ketchup for my fries. I first tried it when I saw a friend of mine in college do it and I like to be adventurous with my food, lol. However, I will not dip my fries in ketchup after dipping them in mayo.

I don't have any strange eating habits/cravings now but when I was little I did eat pickles with ice cream and I would wrap cottage cheese up in bologna. I know, pretty gross, lol.

Dipping anything in ketchup is vomitous. Dipping it in mayo and ketchup, sorry, I just threw up a little in my mouth thinking about it

Honey mustard or bbq sauce for chicken tenders. It blocks the taste of chicken.

There have been 2 votes. It is 50/50 right now. I say the chicken tenders because I mix mayo and ketchup at a ratio of about 3 to 1 mayo to ketchup and then dip my fries in it. I learned this when I worked at BK, so it must be really cool. And I have been told that it is European.

What kind of straight man carries all this stuff with him? Evidently, your kind. Wait, are you considered straight if you get freaky with lemurs?

Blair--All this time I thought the picles and ice cream thing was urban legend.

Libragirl--What does it taste like when you throw up in your mouth a little?

Shelli--Yes, yuo can be straight and be into bestiality. They are FEMALE lemurs for God's sake!

Mayo is great on almost everything so I'd have to say "A".

I'm a ketchup and mayo girl with my fries, too. But only the waffle fries that come from Chick Fil-A. I don't dip my McDonald's fries in anything.

Did I notice Vaseline in your toiletry kit?

Blogger kristi said...

of course the mayo and ketchup is wierder....though I think that is actually a French thing or maybe Belguim.

Anyway I am notorious for mixing mashed potatoes and little green peas together. Not the big fat peas the little early ones.

I also eat Ketchup on scrambled eggs and macaroni and cheese??? Who knows why

Dipping anything in mayo is good to me.
Gravy is even better;)

What kind of cologna is that in your bag?

I always mix mayo and ketchup together its good stuff.

I dip pretzels in ranch dressing is that weird.

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Mike--Yeah, I have friends who do that...

Pixie--Hmmmm...so Mayo Girl would be a good nickname for you :)

Megan--No you didn't smarty-pants. The volume of Vaseline I carry requires its own bag.

Kristi--I put ketchup on scrambled eggs, but on mac and cheese? That is an abomination LOL

Sandi--I agree on both counts!

How about dipping your fries in a milkshake?

Now I'm not sure what I would be dipping in honey mustard and ketchup. Are they like chicken dinkles? LOL

Yech! Skip the ketchup altogether! You didn't have a choice that said both were disgusting, so I didn't vote. Honey mustard on the chix and mayo on the fries - sounds good to me.

Blogger Bluepaintred said...

I eat ketchup on balonga sandwiches , nothing else. I use BBQ sauce for dires thank you very much, but I still voted for which was the worstof the two choices

OK, I'll top you all.

I like to eat the macaroni salad from KFC with gravy on it.

I am NOT from Alabama but I love french fries in mayo and ketchup. Fries dipped in honey mustard then ketchup grosses me out.

I can't believe you took all those notes! LOL But I'm glad you did because that was a great post.

I think it's okay for a straight man to pack like a girrrrrl. I'm guessing you don't give Mrs. Fab any grief about her packing.

It is very weird to eat the fries dipped in mayo and THEN ketchup. Yuck. I'm not a fry eater, but when I do, they're dipped in mayo. Nothing like eating fat dipped in fat, no?

But blessed ketchup...the official condiment of The South.

I guess I don't have any weird food combos. Well, not weird to me. I'm a very picky eater so prolly not. :P

Delurking for the weird food -

I like plain chips in my vanilla ice cream.

Ketchup+mayo=Russian Dressing, and is therefore not weird, but delicious.

Perhaps if you mix the two together first into creamy pink goodness you will not get so many weird looks.

p.s. Once when I was in New York 100 years ago seeing Beauty & the Beast on Broadway, who sat directly in front of me but the divine Ms. Ross herself, flanked by her two small sons.

Her hair was so large that it brushed the tops of my knees. I wish I was kidding.

When I was in Holland, you could buy cones of fries from the frijtas vendor. They put yummy full fat mayo on them. I like my fries better with the real mayo than with ketchup, but since Weight Watchers, I use ketchup more often.

I can't think of any weird food habits off hand for myself. I am sure there is SOMETHING. Oh, my husband thinks I am weird because if I have a milkshake, I like fries with it. Is that weird enough for you?

Blogger Sudiegirl said...

I dip my french fries in mayo only, ranch dressing, or else I just use salt. My sister likes BBQ sauce.

I guess the other thing I do is I like peanut butter on chocolate Pop-Tarts as soon as they come out of the toaster. When I was little, I used to eat chicken hearts, but I stopped once I hit the 3rd grade.

Ketchup and mayo on fries is the norm here in Germany...called Pommes rot/weiss. You can buy ketchup and mayo together in a tube ready to squirt out for your fries...just like that striped toothpaste.

I don't eat honey mustard anything because I hate mustard but the dipping of chicken nuggets into it and then into ketchup didn't sound especially weird to me either. Now if you'd said dipped in ketchup and then cane syrup maybe you'd have gotten my attention.

vinegar & ketchup is the only thing that should go on a french fry!!

It should be a law.

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Kyle--Never speak of that again LOL

Suze--Chicken dinkles? You wacky Brits!

Anon--You are so provincial! LOL

Bluepainted--I just meant that I pack like an aging diva with an entourage. I think.

KQueen--I feel a little better now...

Serra--Yeah, but you are a GIRL LOL

Michele--Yeah, that IS weird :)

Pissy--You always had me figured out from the very beginning!

MC--Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

Amber--But you seem so NORMAL!

Kentucky Girl--I mix them up first :)

Dramedy--You are correct. She can do whatever she wants. And if she had her way I would pack even heavier!

Katie--Nooooooooooooooooo!

Sara--I do mix them together. I'm not a total psycho, you know!

Lynda--You are disturbingly normal!

Sudiegirl--Don't...oh God...you must never mention that pop tart thing to me again!

Dixie--Cane syrup? Come back to us, Dixie...

Jen--There ought to be a law against it!

Weird eating habits....other than eating more than I should, I'd have to say that sometimes I get in the mood to eat spagetti sandwhiches. I cook up some pasta, mix in a little olive oil, and get some sourdough bread with margarine on it and chow down.
You've got to love the all carb meal!

For goodness sakes get yourself a digital recorder for your notes and concentrate on your bloody driving Mango Boy!

(I see no notes for squashed fruit on the side of the road ... tsk tsk)

Geek only eats ketchup on one thing - scrambled eggs; his family puts ketchup in their chili. Ick!

I guess the weirdest condiment/food combo for me is putting mustard on cheddar cheese. Top it with a Frito and you have the bestest snack in the whole world.

A is weird. I like ranch on my fries.

I have that same laptop case. Or did you steal mine?

The only gross thing I've ever heard of is mayonnaise on peanut butter...I mean one must be insane (not me)
and the totally redundant ketchup on spaghetti sauce, I mean, overdone much?

Can you sing: Touch me in the morning.... and Ain't no mountain high enough?

Love those songs ;)

UGHHH They both sound awful!!!!

My weird habit is that my food can not touch on my plate. I have passed this trait down to my children. I do not eat anything weird. I am a major picky eater.
