Zodiac signs. In the kitchen.

Taurus."I wouldn't do it that way". Cancer, that's me. "Get out of here, this is my kitchen". Scorpio. " It's not as good as mine". Is this BS to you? Or is there some truth to it ? Cooking with a .........

  1. well, one must begin by believing in personalities aligning with zodiac signs, which is a system based on a flawed and superstitious vision of the planets and stars.



    1. Astrology tells us that you participate in the mass cultural delusion that the sun's apparent position relative to arbitrarily defined constellations at the time of your birth somehow affects your personality.

      I agree.

          To further Sheldon's point: to stale multi-millennium old constellation placements that have nothing to do with where those objects actually were positioned at the time of your birth.

        2. I rank the Horoscopes in the newspaper just below the cartoons.

              Gasp! *Below* the crossword puzzle? A good showing on, say, a NYT Friday puzzle done in ink augurs better personal well-being for me than the most glowing horoscope ever could! <grin>

              FWIW, Taurus. I think that means I'm pretty good with steak.

          1. Sure....I'm a Gemini and I fit the Gemini traits to a tee. Even my profession is what is said a Gemini is supposed to be suited for. I'm sure some of these traits play in to how I am in the kitchen, as well as any other place.

              I'm a Gemini too and like you said, my traits follow that of a Gemini closely. In many areas of my life I have a distinct duality in profile. But no, I'm not bipolar, haha.

              And I don't believe in the horoscope.

                I am easily distracted, I get bored easily, I'm fickle, talkative, out-going, I like to debate. I mean it all fits me. Good and bad.

                1. re: SaraAshley

                  Alright, you're a notch more than me, then, Sara ;-)

                  Can't say I'm a debater. Talkative when I click with the right people, otherwise I can clam up pretty good. Easily distracted, yes. Get bored easily ..... depends what I'm doing.

            2. A lot that is said about Sagittarians are true about me down to the way I just freely create my own recipes instead of following others...

                Ditto to all that

                The horoscope personalities explanation that I like best can be seen here:


                Sag is "awkward fucktard", except I'm a little more confident than that when cooking for others. Still though...

                  I love this! I'm an "annoying attention whore." Just what I had feared...damn.

                      Eh....attention whore I can handle, I'm a little hurt by the annoying part though.

                    Hah. "Whiny bimbo" here. I resemble that...especially the "whiny" part...

                      Me, too. We should whine about it.

                          Do you have a particular vintage in mind?
