#34 Check out this Update for HS Scans
Hi Daniel: I intended the raw potatoes thing as a sort of Irish thing. I had a vague awareness of the Potato Famine and that potatoes had been a staple. In my neighbourhood there were kids who ate raw potato slices, which I could never "get". I mean, they're almost completely tasteless. Water and vegetable flesh flying in loose formation. It seemed to me to be a very Cerebus thing: completely degraded tastes. It makes a pleasing noise, it has a nice texture and it fills you up. For a Cerebus, that just fits the bill. I'm a lot that way myself, actually. Food unless it's home cooked or cordon bleu is just food. I eat the same thing day after day. Postnet who is doing all my shipping for me is across from the Frederick Street Mall and Fiore's Supermarket where I buy my food. I'll say, "Can you print out a copy of this scan? I'm just going to get groceries." then I'm back five minutes later. John said, "You should teach a course in grocery shopping." I said, "Just always buy the same things." It would be a very easy course to teach.
