* Matrixman, DUDE, that is EXACTLY what I'm going to have written in my obituary! I was so excited when I read that, I squealed, turned to Jesse, and read it aloud to him. You wrote "[She] played a hundred different board and society games with the Grim Reaper, such as Battleship, chess and Twister, but unfortunately, Death cheated in the last game 'cause he was tired of losing". THAT'S IT, THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO HAVE WRITTEN TO IMMORTALIZE ME! Thank you for the wonderful wit of that statement!

* There are things Midwesterner's do that baffle me. They sometimes forget their coats in below freezing weather and don't keep ice trays in the freezer. I suppose they are used to the cold, both outside and in. I'm from the motherfuckin' desert. I've lived in the Midwest for going on 15 years now, but have never quite acclimated to the cold. I NEVER forget my coat and ALWAYS have at least two ice trays in the freezer.

* Is it different in the UK? Ecosystems, I mean. Europe is a smaller area compared to America, where you could travel from the desert to temperate forest lands to outright tropical areas in one day. (On a plane, at least.) I asked Google if Europe has deserts and it informs me that Spain has a kinda-sorta desert.

* I had avocado toast for the first time ever yesterday. HOLY SHIT, I SEE WHY THE INTERNET IS SO OBSESSED WITH THEM. It was delicious. Like, manna-from-the-Gods delicious. I now want avocado toast ALL THE TIME. Everyday. Ten times a day. SO DELICIOUS.

Reminded me of the 2nd Bill & Ted movie 'cause there they needed to play board and society games with Grim Reaper for returning back to life, and he just always lost to them. In the end, he want WITH them, later shown as part of their band...

Avocados are strange things. Don't even know if they're vegetable or fruit really.
First one I ate didn't really taste too well, but the second one went better - bought a pretty hard one and let it become ripe at home. Since then, I became slowly used to these thingies...
When it's about unsaturated fats, think I rather eat one of these than gnawing on whole hazelnuts...
Just turns out to be practically easier to handle for an eater of crudités.
Isn't avocado toast just guacamole on toast instead of corn chips? There's no reason not to put guac on whole wheat (just as there's no reason not to roll peanut butter and jelly in a tortilla). I don't see the big deal. What am I not getting about this?

To be fair, my business partner owned an avocado grove. I wouldn't say "tired of avocados" but it has to be really good avocado to impress me.
Cold doesn't usually bother me all that much. Granted, I don't usually go outside in shorts and a T-shirt during subzero temps :p But, I think it has to do with living at my mother's place. It was always cold in my bedroom there. A lot of it was because there was no cold-air return. If the furnace was running, the heat didn't force the cold air out--it just sort of stayed there. Provided, that the furnace was actually working--it blew up several times when I still lived there. Throw in delivering newspapers during blizzards, and I'm used to it.
