    But you are an INTJ and thus probably a borderline workaholic.

    Once I could afford it, I never packed my lunch (too lazy despite the potential cost savings), but when I had to pack a lunch, it was almost always a sandwich. Seriously, cook extra and then find tupperware and all that jazz to cart it around in? No chance. Make a sandwich either 2 minutes before bed or 2 minutes before leaving, throw in some other consumables (drink, cookies, fruit, etc) and away.

    Questionable quality? Sure. But the pre-planning and cooking effort for non-sandwich lunches? You might as well ask an INTP to fly to the moon.

    I appreciate the effort to make it relateable, but it still doesn't compute for me. Pasta is such a wide ranging concept--perogies, lasagna, casseroles, salads, real salads with crunchy noodles, wontons, stir fry, soups, and all kinds of different choices for flour and moisture to make an array of tooth and alkalinity/acidity and sweetness/bitterness. I can make light snacks, heavy meals, meaty meals, veggie meals--I can even make desserts!

    Take about a cup of rice flour and a cup of all purpose and mix in about a fourth of a cup of a cinnamon and sugar blend. Make noodle dough using either water or egg whites, and then make some long noodles. Form the noodles into a bird's nest and deep fry. Should cook up almost instantly. Place cooked nest in a bowl, use a melon baller to make little eggs from your favorite ice cream, and add them to the nest, then drizzle with chocolate syrup and/or vanilla icing.

    It's noodles, but they don't taste like udon or soba. They taste more like a churro.

    We even have ice cream sandwiches.
    I don't know, something about having to eat food covered in bread was unpleasant to me. I'm over it now and will even buy sandwiches from time to time, but I wouldn't eat them as anything but a last resort. It's often something I'd opt for if I'm on the go. I like stuff on toast but I'd rather limit my bread intake to breakfast.

    This I can relate to. If sandwiches were stuffed zucchini, I'd feel the same way about them you do.

    Know its not directed to me but I dont mind packing the lunch. It's remembering to bring my Tupperware back and then wash it. There were times Tupperware sat in my car for a few days

    I would prefer stuffed zucchini.

    Don't get me wrong, I like bread. Even on its own, if it's fresh and warm. Just not so crazy about it that I want to use it as the edible container of my daily meals. It's a practical way of holding food together.

    Last night I bought the "Cheese please bagel" from Wal Mart. Its a more generic form of the "Better Cheddar" you find at your local grocery deli, but I just now tried to make a sandwich with a cheese bagel and it was top notch.

    I added mayo, an additional slice of cheese and just your basic oven roasted turkey. Oh my god....

    I just realized I have a to go saucer of Jack Daniels sauce from TGIfridays in the fridge.

    I'm gonna make another Cheese Bagel Sandwich, and make a pot of coffee. Trust me on this one.

    Anyone else tortured with this when they were kids, or is it just a Canadian thing.

    God it mentions the queen, lol.

    I think it's just Canada, heh. We got tortured with a lot of Cat Stevens songs, including singing them as hymns

    I've been battling having a Dutch nursery rhyme stuck in my head for a week after stupidly listening to it three times. it's called catootje (don't look for it!). What does the witch say? - it translates to "I will get you" but it sounds like she's saying "say you fuck it, say you fuck it!"
