One Million Four Hundred Eighty Two Thousand…

An egg yolk surrounded by the egg white.

…what’s that mean you ask?

Well you should. It’s damn sure not the meaning of life although it might just be the meaning of my life thus far.

A couple of days ago Eric posted about tuna salad and some of the fixin’s that go into it. If you do it the right way egg whites go in. That’s the way I ate it growing up here in the south anyway.

Flash forward to the night before last and he posted about eggs again and the inability to crack them well. That’s OK dude. It’s a learned art form. I of course had to butt in and let him know that I can crack two at a time. When it’s busy and I am jamming right along I can hold one in each palm while cracking another in the fingers of each hand…

I also performed a feat unimagined here in the Miles casa. I performed a bit of legerdemain called “math”. At least that’s what the wife says it’s called. I think ‘witchcraft’ is more like it. Anyway, I work an average of 260 days per calender year. More now that I have three stores. I cook at least 300 eggs a day. That’s less than a case and in some of my busier stores and on weekends I can go through a case and a half to two cases in seven hours. That means I have prepared at least 1,482,000 eggs since 1987. That’s a fuckload of cholesterol. No wonder mine’s so high, the shit probably seeps through my gloves into my skin.

Just another bit of useless trivia from yours truly…

  • Love your post. And yes, I bet it’s racial, especially since miss Natalee from genteel and rich Alabama origine was hanging out with the Kalpoe brothers, who so very obviously are NOT white.
    Amen on the spelling comments. Like spelling is actually taught in substandard schools, parenting should be a required course in American schools. After all, kids start in 7th and 8th grade having children, maybe if they are taught how to be parents, the kids might stand a chance in life.
    I am a Dutch woman, naturalized many years ago. I love the USA but I have to say this much: if Joran van der Sloot had been arrested in the USA for the supposed crime he committed, he would have been let go a long time ago due to the lack of evidence.
    And the blond bimbette mother Twitty should have been tossed off Aruba on her ear instead of having been given free room and board for her and 10 of her closest relatives, all the while badmouthing the Aruban judicial system and the corruptness of Holland. Does she even know where the hell to find Holland? How could her daughter have withdrawn $10,000 on the night she disappeared? What 18-year-old has access to that much money without question?
    I feel for the family. Losing a child must be a horrific ordeal, but Twitty is not the only mom who has lost a wayward daughter (is she even dead, why haven’t they found ANY DNA evidence anywhere?) and the resources she apparently has at her disposal are, to say the least, questionable. I guess money talks and bullshit……. well, you know the rest
    Oh, and for what it’s worth, I live in rural Oklahoma, where the rednecks are as thick as the ones in your neck of the woods…. and I love every minute of it.

  • Are you serious? Did Natalie Holloway really withdraw 10K from her bank account on the night she disappeared? If it is so, she must have done it from a bank, in person, with passport id. It is unlikely that it was an ATM withdrawal. They don’t do it in that amount. So, if it is so – and having followed the case,I have not heard this before – is it not a reasonable inference to draw that she either needed the cash for a deal of some type (read; “drugs”) or she was planning to do a runner. That’s the thing about the media coverage. It lacks objectivity.
    Curious, eh? Hard to imagine on a small place like Aruba, a person just disappears totally without trace.

    Do you happen to have a link to this story? I would be interested in finding out more. I have been working quite a bit the last few days and have not been able to keep up with the news.

  • Natalee Holloway may be halfway to England by now. That is what happens to some people who go swimming shit faced drunk. Who can Beth blame it on. I lived in Birmingham, Alabama for several years and completely understand the “guilty until proven innocent” mentality that goes along with southern church mythology. I did not say it was right it just is.
    To date (8/1/05) Birmingham has has 35 murders (mostly unsolved) this year. Compared to 3 murders in three years where was Natalee safer.
    Seem like some of us in the US just gotta blame someone besides ourselves. Like we blame Moslems for the way Reagan screwed them in Afghanistan.
