Answers to today’s questions at

1. What is the best sandwich?

Wheat bread buttered, topped with thin lunch meat slices, small pineapple chunks, blue cheese chunks and grated pizza cheese at the very top, heated in oven until the pizza cheese has melted and is golden brown.

2. What’s the one thing you own that you really should throw out?

I cleaned out my closets about a year ago, and I can’t really think of anything that I should throw out now. What I should do is fix the stand-mixer so I can use it again, or take it to be recycled.

Logically thinking it should be simple fix with the right tools, but knowing how things are built these days, I’m not sure it actually is because things aren’t built to be repaired but to be thrown out and new one to be bought :/ And also I would have to buy the tool first, and it’s so far down my list of necessary buys that I never seem to get there. Particularly because the last few years I’ve been so fucking tired all the time that I haven’t baked much of anything, and certainly not anything that would need a stand mixer. The tiredness is also why I haven’t put the stand mixer fixing high on the list of things I need to do. So I guess it’ll wait some more.

3. What’s the scariest animal?

Big reptiles – crocodiles, alligators and caimans and I can’t remember if there’s others like that. Snakes are almost on par with them, but not quite. Raised By Wolves which is airing its second season right now, has a big flying snake/reptile and it the awfullest thing I’ve seen propably since I first saw Alien as a kid. I love it but it’s just the most awful thing – makes me shudder.

4. Apples or oranges?

I don’t really like either – I eat them if they’re sliced and part of a cake/salad etc, but I never buy oranges for myself and very, very rarely apples (and only one certain branch of apples at that). Apples are too tart/sour and oranges taste too strong plus the flesh can cause a rash on lips/in mouth for me. I like clementines/mandarins much better and they rarely cause rashes. I do love freshly squeezed orange juice though so I sometimes buy that.

5. What’s your favorite smell?

I’m not sure I have one. Maybe hot-from-the-oven home baked bread? I don’t have good associationas with smells… Just in general almost any smell that is strong enough for me to take actual notice of it, especially artificial smells, is usually also strong enough to possibly trigger a migraine. So I prefer unscented in all things, and actively avoid things like perfumes or scented soaps, candles, detergent etc. I buy unscented versions of everything I possibly can.
