You know you're an EGulleter when...

Recommended Posts

I must have always been an Egulleter

because 21 years ago with absolutely no money, no jobs, no friends, no family (other than husband and kids) no plans or any other reason

I moved me and mine to this area simply

for the food!

why am I always at the bottom and why is everything so high? 

why must there be so little me and so much sky?

last night I dreamed that we were off on a holiday to several random places and then Montreal. My first reaction was excitement, I love Montreal, my second was that if we got there tomorrow (you know how timeframes and places are scrambled in dreams but seem perfectly logical :smile: ) I would never get a reservation at Au Pied de Cochon :laugh:

ps. still awaiting the book

When you and the spouse are going to Fresno... and you wonder if Megan Blocker will be in town.

I guess that I have gone "around the bend" also.

When you check the egullet site every 20 mins for new posts.

Or when you excitedly check the site everyday a few times and don't even feel like checking your personal Yahoo or hotmail EMail box more than twice a week... No comment...

AND whenever your first reference when it comes to traveling is egullet înstead of igougo or frommer's....or "worse": whenever egullet forums say that destination X sucks food-wise and you consequently cancel the whole trip altogether :raz:

When you rib your friend that she quotes the New York Times on a daily basis and she points out "Oh yeah, well you reference egullet at least twice that much!"

When your daughter says "Mom, can I pleeaazzee have my laptop back? Oh no, not that food site again!" My computer is upstairs in a bedroom but I can easily get on my daughter's for a few minutes since she's connected wirelessly and I can just quickly get on whenever I happen to pass by and notice it.

and..........when you are on your way to an emergency dental appointment because of a cracked tooth, exposed nerve causing acute, stabbing pain with any movement of air in the mouth and...... driving by a used book store spot a sign that says - COOKBOOK SALE TODAY ONLY!- drive to the next intersection, make a U-turn and wheel into the parking lot and sprint (uh, hobble, in my case) into the book store.

Twenty-five minutes later, arrive at the dental office, complaining about the traffic, but failing to mention the twenty-three cookbooks in the back of the van.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

You know you're an eGulleteer when a stranger in the grocery store takes a look at your cart and decides to ask you what you'd serve for snacks other than chips and dip, and you start firing so many ideas at her that she stops you long enough for her to take out a pencil and a piece of paper to jot down notes. She says, "I guess I asked the right person!" Then you keep going until her eyes glaze over and she starts backing away from you. . .

You know you're an eGulleteer when you're considering buying new dishes because you've decided your perfectly good current dishes are just entirely too boring when photographing meals for the Dinner! thread.

....and I have, too.

...when you're on vacation with family, and the family on the last day says, "Enough already! We aren't eating four meals just so you can try every restaurant on the eGullet list."

I haven't given up yet...the day has just begun!

...when you have your second eGullet-related dream in a row.

This time you're pastry shopping with Ling, and she refuses to let you take pictures of the goodies!

Can you imagine? Not taking pictures of beautiful pastries? Wait a minute, is that a dream or a nightmare?

...when you're telling a friend about a conversation with friend X, and what friend X had for dinner last night, and how she cooked it, and the first friend says, "Do I know her? What's her last name?"

And you have to confess that you don't think you know her last name.

Where does she live?

Canada, maybe. Or maybe in the U.S., but I think it would be the Northwest.

And your friend says "You know what she had for supper last night but you don't know her last name?"

:rolleyes:

...Or you find yourself explaining molecular gastronomy to your co-worker.

...Or when your friend just got back from Italy and wants to tell you about his trip, and all you're interested in is what he ate.

...Or when you tell people you're planning to go to a gathering of people you met on the Internet, and their eyes get big, and you try to explain, it's okay, it's okay... it's not like that... it's not really the INTERNET Internet, it's this food site... :laugh:

My friends all know when I say, "....internet food community..." I mean eGullet. It sounds much nicer to call it a "food community" than just the internet. You get fewer "Are you crazy?" looks! :biggrin:

When you have more pics of food on your camera's memory card then you do of your kids.

When you go to a local restaurant and see the pics your husband took are posted on their wall.

When even your parents know your Egullet friends by their posting names.

You take pictures of the food at YOUR OWN WEDDING RECEPTION because you want to show off your macarons and candies to the fellow gulleteers !!

Your honeymoon is planned around restaurants you want to visit.

You no longer visist "tourist attractions" on holiday, you visit food markets, bakeries and restaurants. But not before thoroughly researching on E gullet first.

You think "ooh, my best friend will luuurve this site" and can't wait to tell her

...for your birthday, its assumed by everyone that you'll make your own cake and no one should bother even trying:

And, when all of your friends bring you eggs to bake with for your birthday. I ended up with over 70 eggs including some monsterous goose eggs.

Rob, what a wonderful idea for a gift! Please pass my compliments on to the originator.

>70 eggs! Wow. That has to feel good!

Are you going to try blowing those eggs, so you can save the decorated ones?

Or will pix suffice?
