Mmm.... you speaking of Nutella (and/or similiar well replica), Madame R'Mix? (For Nusspli is too sweet and the consistence all wrong!) Then, no, there ain't!

:)

.... Except maybe naughty actions involving/using Nutella....

:D

12"razormix 02-12-2009 03:44 PM

no, not nutella ( i consider nutella a drug ) ( this was inspired by kitkat senses ) ;)

Stephi_B 02-12-2009 03:48 PM

MoJoRiSin 02-16-2009 09:57 PM

my brother and mother and one sister =hazel
my other sister and other brother and dad =blue
mo is and was and always will be just different
what can she say?

Brynn 02-17-2009 07:56 AM

favorite comfort snacks -

buttermilk and V-8 - just plain delicious.


Peanut butter, iceburg lettuce, salt and mayo on toast (just try it once before you decide)


M&M's and cream cheese. technique is important here: get a dollop of cream cheese on your finger, and roll it in m&m's. Transfer directly to mouth.


mix 1:2 ratio of sour cream to parmesan cheese and broil it on toast. Top with a sliced tomato and broil that too. Maybe not unexpected in Great Britain ("welsh rarebit"), but I'm always surprised by how few people around here have tried it.


Sauteed zucchini, sliced thinly lengthwise. Roll it around a little bit of fresh mozzarella, sun-dried tomato, and impale with a kalamata olive and a toothpick. Salt, and drench in extra virgin olive oil.


watermelon, chopped mint, heirloom tomato and white balsamic vinegar, with just a dash of salt. oh my goodness.

Odbe 02-17-2009 05:12 PM

Cardamom and honey

lukkucairi 02-18-2009 10:23 AM

Newest Q ?

Was wondering about about the gender of sun & moon; in the Roman languages sun=male, moon=female, in my mother tongue it's just the other way round (how's that in English btw? or in other languages you know?).



So what is your feeling like about:


♀ or ♂ or neuter or ?

♀ or ♂ or neuter or ?

lukkucairi 02-19-2009 12:41 PM

I grew up speaking english and always thought of the sun as male and the moon as female - could be all that greek and roman mythology I read as a tiny kid though

the egyptians saw the night sky as female and the sun as male, I think

women are associated with the moon for fairly obvious physiological reasons.

I also tend to think of cats as female and dogs as male - is that a germanic thing?

and speaking of weird germanic words, does the german word for "nipple" really translate literally as "breast wart"?

zero 02-19-2009 12:50 PM

the pair of them have always been very distinctly female to me & they have girlie faces with winsome smiles.

Yes it is: die Katze - female, der Hund - male

In French the dog is male too and for cats there are words in both genders, I think.

Indeed, it is: Brustwarze, not really a sexy expression :o That's why we've adopted your nipple as Nippel :)


I tend to think of sun and moon as she and he like I am used to from our genders, and that although I obey lunar rhythms as a chica and am generally quite moon-feely. I am also influenced by the "man in the moon" image (from children stories, songs and the like), which, I just discovered seems also an ancient thing.

Stephi_B 02-19-2009 01:31 PM

Now as I think about it, there is something strange with our genders (or it's a ☯ thing, I'd like that) for night (die Nacht) and day (der Tag) are female and male, respectively!

Frieda 02-19-2009 02:19 PM

dutch language doesn't make a distinction in male/female, it probably did in the past but i cannot be arsed to google it right now :o

de zon, de maan

Stephi_B 02-19-2009 02:35 PM

^Don't arse yourself :)
But how do you personally see them? He-ey, she-ey or it-ey?

Frieda 02-19-2009 02:40 PM

well, it has been raining for so long that i haven't seen the sun or the moon in 4 weeks

but during better seasons, i would go for sun as male and moon as female.

YsaPur EsChomuw 02-19-2009 02:59 PM

In Hungarian there's no gender distinction of nouns or adjectives. (nap=sun, hold=moon)

In Slovak the sun (slnko) is neuter, the moon (mesiac) is masculine.

Day (deň) is masculine, night (noc) is feminine.

Personally, I've never thought of the sun as either ♀ or ♂.

The moon has always been ♀ for me, for its seemingly changing, yet constant character.

It was almost clear that moon = hold ;) :)

but although we in the eastern geranium steppe have seen the sun sometimes lately, she or he or it, the golden disc up there, the fire ball, Ra, and other god(esse)s, could stop taking these long naps soon!!!

treekisser 02-19-2009 04:02 PM

If scientists were to discover that there is in fact a man in the moon, that might prove conclusively that the moon is female.

MoJoRiSin 02-19-2009 09:05 PM

Not necessarily conclusively.

Jack Flanders 02-20-2009 01:54 AM

my vote - unisexual

Some things are best to remain hidden. It seems like the gender of the moon is one of those.

Even the cow that jumped over the moon is cryptic about this grand secret.
