Went for a nighttime walk, while it was cool and windy. The scent of honeysuckle was on the breeze. I think there might even be some starting to grow on my backyard fence. I tried to suckle some honey a few days ago, but it wasn't ripe yet. Blech.
Elsewhere during my
walk I passed a rose garden, which the wind brought to me. It got me
to wondering why the scent of roses is so strongly associate with the
feminine. Is it just the use of perfumes, oils, and bath scents
throughout the ages that has permeated the culture with the accompanying
associations? Or is it a deeper sorta thing.. like that study that
said the scent of pumpkin pie mixed with lavender inexplicably aroused
On another note, I was looking through some old
tv commercials on retrojunk. I saw a shanghai mcnugget add.. I had
practically forgotten about those, but boy did I love em. They were
only out for a short time in the mid 80's, and they came with chopsticks
and teriyaki dipping sauce. I must have asked for those things every
day while they were available. Oh teriyaki mcnugget, where have you
gone and why have you foresaken me?
I made homemade teriyaki
sauce for chicken once. I must have overcooked it, cause that chicken
was like beef jerky. Still tasty, though.
