I'm eating a lemon. Am I the only person that eats the lemon? Hmm... Oh well. I'm just making a topic of oddities that you do in your daily life that nobody else does. So what is it that you do that you doubt anybody else would do routinely?

I ate a lemon once. It wasn't too bad, but It's not something I'd make a daily snack. I don't really have many oddities... wait..let me think.... I'll get back to you on that... huh.gif

When I eat bread, sometimes I'll just take five slices (no more, no less!) and tear the top half of the crusts off (only the tops, not the bottoms!), and then I'll roll what's left into a ball, and I'll eat it like an apple. Except when I get to the "core," I eat that too.

Maybe another oddity of mine is that when I eat bread, I must have it plain. People always think I'm being weird to turn down butter or anything on my bread, but I really prefer it plain.

Also related to bread products -- when I make toast, I absolutely have to have it burnt. I turn up the toaster to the highest setting, and I stick my bread in there until it's black, and I eat it that way (no butter, please!). My boyfriend of course thinks it's insane of me to do this.

It's not terrifically odd to eat bread plain. I refuse to put butter or anything on mine, and I like rolling slices up into little balls as well - albeit not one massive bread ball, but still, something about it being compacted like that just makes it taste better.

And the toast reminded me of my dad. Anytime my mother and I would make toast, it would only be slightly golden and just a bit crispy, but he'd have to have his charred beyond all recognizability as bread.

"That thar's MAN TOAST!"


As for things I do, I'm not sure if it's weird or not, but I like dipping those little oyster crackers in thousand island dressing. Yums...happy.gif

And my mom ate a fried pickle yesterday at this big German restaurant by the river when her and her coworkers went out to dinner. Frying a pickle is something I just would never think of doing....makes you wonder who first thought it would be a good idea.

I'm very particular about my toast, too, but in the sense that it has to be even all over, with absolutely no black patches. This results in:

Putting toast in.
Turning toast around (one side of the toaster is always hotter than the other).
Turning toast upside down (otherwise the top half isn't done so well).
Turning toast around again.

And then *quickquickquick* with the butter, so it all melts in nicely (and, again, evenly).

As you can imagine, it takes me ten minutes to make toast. But when I do, it's gooooooood.

I reckon it was probably thought up by somone in the north of Britain, where culinary experimentation generally goes about as far as seeing what else can be fried. It is common to see deep fried Mars bars on the menu in take-away food shops.

My cousin eats lemons like its no mans business. I just stare at her normally in disbelief that she doesn't pull funny faces when she's eating them.

My friends say i eat boiled eggs weird... i on the other hand think it's perfectly normal. I chop the top off and dip my soliders in so that i get all the yolk and whatever egg. I then dismantle the egg shell to get to the rest of all the egg. See normal!! rolleyes.gif

OMG blink.gif I was gonna make a thread bout weird eating habits but thought it would be too weird even for this forum lol.

Yeah I eat lemons sometimes, though I actually like limes better.

I also absolutely love tinned tomatoes. I eat them a lot, then dip bread in the "juice" (that sounded so wrong lol).

My eggs have to be soft boiled, and if I can possibly get away with it I only eat the yolk. With soldiers. And I like my toast very very dark.

Oooh.. compacted bread is good. I compact my sandwiches sometimes too, I don't roll them up, I just kinda squish them flat, but it makes them better. I like white bread dipped in coke too (I don't like butter unless it's melted (or with marmite) so once when I was at this resterant and they brought that bread you get before the meal arrives I tried dipping it in my coke to add flavor), fizzy bread is kinda odd, but still tasty. Also, I sometimes make this drink out of lemonade, orange juice, hot chocolate powder and apple and blackcurrant consentrate, which is variant of a drink my friend made up ages ago called choco tropo bubbles delight. I can't really think of any more odd foods I like at the moment, so that'll do.

And battered mars bars are REALLY good. My friend suggested I try a battered cream egg too, but I'm yet to get round to that.

Back in my meat-eating days, I used to eat bacon and sausage so charred it was practically ash. Out of force of habit, I still do. mm...burnt tofu.

My brother will put ketchup (katsup? catsup? whatever) on anything and everything. Anything. This includes waffles and ice cream. Eych.

I always eat the core of the apple. It confuses me that other people don't; everyone throws away what must be a good fifth or so of the fruit!

Sometimes I eat the stalk, too, though I admit that's kind of odd.

I refuse to admit that my habit of putting ice cream in Coke is weird. It's not, dammit! You're the weird ones!

Oh! I eat apple cores too. I'm just so used to it it doesn't even seem odd to me anymore, I gave up eating the stalks though. And ice cream in coke is just a float right? That's normal, do some people think it's odd?

Hmmm... I do eat some types of grass sometimes. Not as much as I used to though. If you peel the outer leaf bits off, you get to a small white part of the stem which I like. I think that's probably my oddest eating habit.

I believe that's called a Brown Cow or something...or is it Black Cow? Hmm. I can't remember the exact name. Anyway, you can order it at some old-fashioned-y soda shops in the states. At least where I am, anyway.

I put ice cream in all sorts of pops. Ooh! Especially good is an orange sherbet/vanilla mix put in 7-up. But that's not particularly weird...is it?

Let's see...what do I eat that is weird? Hmm. I used to put ranch dressing on a *lot* of things. Ranch dressing french toast...seriously. Instead of milk, I'd mix in some ranch dressing with the eggs, then top the whole thing with melted cheese. It was basically a heart attack on a plate..lol. I haven't eaten that in years, though...since I was around 13, I guess.

I also love onions and garlic....I put them in a ton of things. I never understood putting things like that in ice cream, though...yuck!

When you put ice cream in Coke, isn't it called a spider? It's what I've always called it.
I hate eating almost all cooked vegetables. I eat raw carrots, pumpkin (much nicer than when it's cooked), cabbage, brussells sprouts, cauliflower and potatoes.
I eat ice, even on the coldest day. I just love that slightly salty freezer taste the ice cubes get.
I eat lemons too. Limes rock!

Icecream in juice is wierd? unsure.gif oops...

The only other wierd combo I like is smoky bacon crisps (must be Walkers) dipped in those little pots of half frozen chocolate mousses you get. Yum yum.

ice cream in coke IS called a spider and it IS delicious!! it is really good if you use chocolate icecream. yum. another good thing, that people say is weird until i make them try it. mcdonalds fries in the caramel sundae. you get fries, you get caramel sundae, you dip fries in sundae and eat. ice-creamy fries. so good. so under-rated. once when i was little i ate chocolate fudge with onion-flavour dip and thought it was good. but not anymore. anything+mustard is good.

I believe coke and ice cream is called a Coke Float where I come from as the ice cream floats in the coke. Simple really wink.gif

I was also once told that if you ate an apple core you'd get an apple tree grow in your stomach! ohmy.gif Mind you someone also told me that if you ate too many crisps your insides would fur up!!! laugh.gif rolleyes.gif laugh.gif

It's a Brown Cow, you weirdos! tongue.gif

All the sites I found said it was called a spider in Australia, though. And I call everything else in that category "floats" (like root beer floats and the like), but a Coke Float doesn't sound as neato as a Brown Cow.

Nyah! tongue.gif

Yes but a Coke Float is better from a visual point of view. If you asked someone in a bar round them here parts for a Brown Cow they would direct you to the vicinity of the nearest farmer's field! tongue.gif
