Hello! So I wrote this post and then started thinking about how it might be a fun thing to write about in other categories...(Not just weird things I eat) but "Weird Things I".... secretly think, dream, do, write, believe, wear, drink, DON'T do, what-ever. Just any old thing that you ever stop and think "Am I the only weirdo who likes/does this? Why is this weird?, I love it!"
And I also think it might be a fun idea for a blog link up if anyone is interested? Full disclosure I have no idea how to do these so it might involve some technical assistance. Which, after getting a new template - do you like it? I like it, but do want to jazz up my header a bit!, and yes I paid a reasonable few pennies to have it installed for me, thank you Blogger Templates at Etsy, because no, I cannot un-zip a file, I tried about fifty times and made a mess, sorry I am not a techie, and no it's not that easy because our friend who is like a real computer nerd couldn't work it out either!. Anyway!...onto my first weird thing!
Weird Things I ... Eat!
So...I don't know about you, but once in a while I will be eating something and stop and think "Is this a really weird/gross thing I made up somewhere?" I think it comes from student days, from poor post-grad days in NYC, because I certainly remember eating plenty of weird "meals". Some of the things stick though, become some things we continue to enjoy despite their potential gross-ness (to other people!). So yeah, this is one of my things...don't judge me! ;-0
It all starts innocently enough....
Just some tuna fish...what could possibly be weird about that?
This...I don't even know where this came from...
Your eyes are not deceiving you...that is some carrot, and some RAISINS. Yep, I said raisins. A little snack for later, maybe?

Now before you get all judge-y British people, I have seen what YOU put in tuna, and I do not approve! (They put corn, they call it "sweetcorn" here, Idkw, in their tuna, and I find it weirdly revolting for a crazy lady who puts raisins in her tuna!).
So yeah, do other people eat this weirdness too or just me? I think the reason I personally find it weird is, this is going to sound super loopy now, but I am actually pretty picky when it comes to raisins being in other stuff. I will not abide raisins in muffins or apple pie/streudel (that is like my idea of hell, I don't know why!). I once dated an Italian guy whose family put raisins in the meatballs and I almost lost my mind it grossed me out so much but I still had to be polite and try to eat the very weird meatballs! So sticking raisins in tuna just seems whacked out to me, on an aesthetic level, and it's not something I do all the time, but sometimes I crave it and it's the only thing that will do.
How about you, is there anything you eat that you suspect is secretly very weird and would gross people out?
