Left-over guilt

Something is wrong with me (not something that prevents me from blogging - that's just plain laziness). I have some weird issue that prevents me from opening some kind of food if something else is already open.... ah christ this makes no fucking sense. If there is a box of cereal open - I can't bring myself to open a new one until I have completely finished the first box. The first box could be shitty generic bullshit-O's and I will choke them down until they are gone before I but out the Cocoa-Puffs.

Here's the other weird thing - since I was a toddler I have always loved adult cereals. Special K was my favorite all throughout grades school when other kids were trying to steal sugar cereal from a hapless fucking leprachaun (I have no interest what-so-ever in looking up how to spell that).

Okay - its been like 3 weeks and I don't want to over do it - I'm done.

you're gay. Also I do that thing you do with cereal only I do it for every single meal where multiple foods are involved. No Quarter Pounder until the fries are gone. No mashed potatoes and gravy until the roast beef is gone. I have issues.

As a cereal fanatic, I have a lot to say about this. I also hesitate to open a new box, but only if we have too many open already. I seriously have about 9 different cereals in my pantry, and I'm dying to break out the Crunch Berries, but we already have 5 open boxes. So here I wait. As for the adult cereals, I haven't always liked them, but I do now. (My favorite is Oatmeal Squares. Man, that box weighs nearly 10 pounds!) However, I'm still a sucker for the chocolate-frosted-sugar-bomb varieties. If you've noticed on my blog, I usually have 2 different "cereals of the day". That's because I have to eat like 7 bowls of FrankenBerry to get filled up, and my husband would look at me like he married Kirstie Ally if I were to do that every morning. So I have to eat a bowl of Wheat Chex first. Now there's a cereal that will stick in your gut!

OMG I'm a loser.

In the adult cereal arena, grapenuts have always befuddled me. The suckers multiply in milk! In theory, a box of grapenuts could last your entire lifetime...just put one or two 'nuts in the boy and add milk. They'll then reproduce like bunnies and you'll be full ALL DAY.

What the hell is with that name anyway? Grape Nuts? It sounds like the hero in some kind of japanese porn anime. They are awesome mixed in yogurt though.

I will eat an entire family sized box of Frosted Flakes in 10 minutes.

You share the same disorder my fiance has with the whole "don't open a new box till all the others are gone" issue.
Me? I get home from grocery shopping and start sampling one bite of just about every frigging food item I've purchased. That's a whole different disorder. Not sure which is worse.
As to adult cereals ~ same here. I am still pretty well hooked on Cheerios (has to be the original General Mills though) and plain old corn flakes. I used to add my own sugar but I've broken myself of that habit.
I've missed visiting here!
