Nuke is a Four-Letter Word

I have finally realized why the cookbook my grandmother gave me (peta's Vegan College Cookbook) entertains me so much more than the cookbook my stepmother gave me (Ok, So Now You're a Vegetarian). First off, peta's has much more of a 'hey, check this shit out!' feel, and tells jokes all the time. Ok, ... doesn't, and has this weird feel to it... I mean, look at the title. It's a bad title. I don't like it. And the part under it, 'from one teen to another,' just makes me want to hurl. People my age don't call each other 'teens.'

We call each other other names. Ones I'm not sure I should say ;)
Anyways, the reason is that- all right, I just noticed something else. The author of the second one? Her last name is Butts. Why would I want to eat food from recipes created with the last name Butts? Moving on.

The peta cookbook uses the word 'nuke' more than half the time to replace the traditional word, 'microwave.' As in, "nuke for 1 minute, or until cheese is melted." That word never fails to amuse me. Nuke, nuke, nukity nuke.


  1. Thanks for checking...I think I finally figured it out.

    The next time you'll hear from me, it will be 2010! (it sounds so futuristic...)

  2. Futuristic? Lol. The next time you hear from me will- well, it might be really late tonight, but it'll probably be the wee hours of 2010.

  3. From one teen to another...lol. Btw, I can't believe your 13 and a freshman :)

  4. Yeah, and the recipes weren't all that great, either. I guess I forgot to mention that :)

    And thank you, I like to hear that I don't sound like an angsty teen! Well, I might, but... you know what I mean. I hope.
