Fighting about salad and dirty pally spells

I think I've mentioned before that our guild has a very low drama quotient. Because we don't have typical guild drama, we have to find drama where we can. Thus, the latest topic for us to fight about has been yes, salad.

This came up because I was raving on vent about the best salad in the whole entire world:

That is CPK's Moroccan chicken salad. It is moroccan-spiced chicken with roasted butternut squash, dates, avocado, toasted almonds, beets, chopped egg, carrots, dried cranberries, and red bell peppers all tossed in a champagne vinaigrette. I can't even express to you how much I love it. I could seriously probably eat it every day.

Now Shmoo, Nkm, and Sam had strong reactions to this, saying that salads should not have fruit or nuts or weird things in it. To which Jess and I countered with examples of other amazing salads like spinach with strawberries and pecans or a salad with pears, gorgonzola, and walnuts. Yum! They weren't convinced though.

Now Shmoopsypoo has gotten it in his head somehow that he is the expert on all things salad. Now I know that salad is his favorite food, and he eats it all the time, but I question whether this makes him the expert. I told them I'm going to strap them down and make them eat a salad with fruit and nuts on it at Clawcon.

Moving on from salad... we have a friend Thormaine who runs with us from time to time. He's a ret pally and just does crazy crazy dps. We were running something and Thor had just done his typical crazy dps on a boss and Sam, who was tanking at the time, commented on Thor's crazy dps with something to the effect of:

"You just divine storm-ed all over that boss' face!"

Um. Hmmm. I think that when Sam plays his pally now, he runs around screaming "Divine storm all over your face! Divine storm all over your face!" Let me just tell you that whenever my inscriptionist now makes glyphs of divine storm, I feel dirty.


  1. Longhorns in Atlanta has a yummy "Strawberry pecan salad".

  2. Salad is supposed to be dull and boring so that people on diets feel miserable. It is well-known that negative emotions are positively correlated with all manner of health outcomes.

    I'd feel dirty making those glyphs just because they're terrible.

  3. I have to say...I'm not a greens person. Salad is what *my* dinner has for dinner =)

    Although Longhorn's of the things I miss about Atlanta! I grilled my own delicious steak last night though! Complete with corn on the cob (cooked on the grill of course!).

    Now, you want a real debate: Corn on the Cob > all other vegies!

  4. @Anon: Mmmm that sounds yummy!!!

    @Klep: Noes! Salads can be awesomely un-dull and boring! I probably eat about 5 salads as full meals per week... at least.

    @Beru: Seriously? But, but... you're a tauren! Isn't that a bit cannibalistic? ;)

  5. I was going to make some snide comment that maybe Shmoo, Nkm, and Sam would prefer a "meat salad," but then I thought that maybe that sounded dirty so I Googled it first.

    I'll try to forget what I read on Urban Dictionary.

  6. waldorf salad.. with apple! Its very nice

  7. I am very pleased to know that I have created mild paranoia in Jess that now requires him to google and wikipedia any terms that could even be remotely construed as "dirty"...i.e. "Golden Oreo"

    Salads are: Lettuce, dressing and animal by-products. That. Is. It.
