Name that spice/herb, with gross (unrelated and NSFW) poll.

Warning: This is a very disjointed and random post. I just thought that would be better than splitting them all up into separate ones.

What is the spice/herb that you often find in Italian sausage? And other sausage actually. It's like a little seed and has a very specific taste. I don't think I like it, but I don't remember what it's called. I could look it up somehow, but I don't even know what to google, so I thought I'd ask you guys, and while I'm here...

How is everyone? I cannot effing believe it's only Wednesday. I was at school from 7 am to 5:30 pm today, which is long at least for me. I'm a sub, I'm used to being able to scoot out of there right when the bell rings. I'm earning this extra money for the long term thing, let me tell you.

I just began catching up from the day, and I'll discovered so far is that Alix swings and Squirrly is a new mod (congrats!). I'll continue catching up, but did anything exciting happen today?

And lastly, I'm full of random crap today, and I'm weirded out by something. The district I'm subbing in gave me access to a desktop computer today, which is pretty exciting since I can actually take attendance and record grades and such, but the tech guy at school is a little, um, different. In my brief experience with him, the only thing I can say is that he reminds me of Dennis from Jurassic Park A LOT.  So anyway, after I started using the computer, I noticed a sticky whitish clear substance that seems to have dried into a few blobs along the edges. What do you think it is?

    The spice is fennel seeds.

    ETA: it has a mildly licorice taste, right?

    If you leave mayonnaise out, it will be come somewhat clear and semen-esque in appearance.

    I left my knife out with mayo on it last night and when I picked it up this morning it looked really gross.

    Umm apparently caraway and fennel seeds look exactly alike, so it could be either one I guess :) Fennel sounds like what I'm talking about though.

    Ah, that's it sara. I was thinking of the icky seeds in rye bread. Blech.

    And tlv, I voted for "unknown adhesive" because even if it's not, I really want you to think it was so you don't have nightmares about it. Ew.

    I mean, I'm not a guy so I don't know, but wouldn't you try to contain yourself when you finish? Do they just let it squirt everywhere? Wouldn't they cover themselves with a tissue or something?

    Wow. Gross.

    Poli, I'm more disturbed by the fact that it's a school computer! Though at one therapy office I worked at, they kept sending out memos that we need to log all the way off and shut down before leaving each day, because the janitors were using the computers at night to look up porn. This is one of the reasons why I always carry anti-bac wipes and gel with me.

    I mean I was kind of joking about the semen, even though that was the first thing I thought of, but NOW I'M WORRIED.

    You have to watch out for us techy people, we're a special bunch ;)

    Today I got to rewrite the computer schedule for sol's for the 4th time in 2 weeks. If it snows tomorrow I will scream. I was also called a hero by a student and the math dept head because I have a master key to the school. A teacher had locked the room and left for the day (seconds after the bell rang) and locked all of the students belongings in the room.

    Let's hope it's food. Tons of people eat while on the computer. I don't take a lunch break. I eat my sandwich with one hand and type with the other.

    Aw, tlv. Don't worry. If it's the tech dude you're worried about, he likely has more than enough tech and access to internet porn at home, so he wouldn't use the school computer. I think part of the issue with the custodians at my old job is that they didn't have computers at home, and it was the middle of the night so no one was watching.

    It's definitely fennel seeds! I know this because I hate fennel seeds, and found a vendor at the farmers market who sells fenneless italian sausage that rocks.

    And, I've been here all day and apparently missed that Alix swings. How did that happen?

    EDIT: Ok, I'm blind, just looked down.

    Ha, lp- it just happened a few minutes ago. And which farmer's market? Soulard? I want fennel-less sausage! And absolutely I'd love to be your knot contact btw! :)  Especially if it's at 3 am.

    So what else did I miss today?

    They're at the maplewood farmers market, when they open back up you'll have to come over and we can go. They do it at schlafly's so we can just walk over. Oh Oh, AND I can get a beer when we do it!!!!!!!!

    Sweet, you're officially on the list called "people we can update early on because they aren't going to get all psycho and impersonate a doctor to get into the delivery room". We have another list, and the sole person on it is my mother ;).

    Ok, anyways, some chick got banned for whoring out her fugly monograms over on invites.
