    I'll have to think about this and choose wisely.
    I was serious if you want to pick a pair, or one this and one that...

    OK, I'll think about it. I'm leaning towards chicken and bunny, but this is not a decision to be taken lightly. Just understand, though, that they will be used on my grandmother's peasant table so it won't be a total conversion and a total win for you.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    It's pretty, and completely functional and practical which appeals to me. Sigh. So many things to think about...

    I just like that it's in a shape of a tulip. You know, Holland, tulips, windmills...plus it's purty and not too busy like some of the other ones. Just my taste.

    The Polish/Finnish peasant girl in me likes one of the $39.95 ones, too. Specifically, the one with the windmill design (would look lovely with my collection of windmill design Delft tiles), but I still wouldn't ever willingly eat a soft-boiled egg again.

    If they float, I don't use them. I always crack eggs into a separate dish before putting them into the bowl they will be mixed in and if they look or smell "off" I don't use them. I use a variety of eggs - bought hen eggs, hen eggs my own hens have laid, and goose eggs my geese have laid - and have never got sick, even after using eggs that are 3 months old.

    The only time I have ever put tea in my cup to brew is when I have had some simple herbal tea that is super weak and can't take more than a small amount of water.

    Oh and my uncle who likes to think of himself as a proper Englishman says when pouring out your cup of tea, the milk goes in first. (Personally I don't use any additives.)
    That only applies to Black Tea. For loose leaf white tea and green tea, don't use boiling water. Let the water cool just a tad bit. Boiling water will destroy the delicate white/green tea flavor.

    Oooh, those are the ones I was talking about when I said I'd had some! Expensive, but great eggs! Really fresh, and dark coloured yolk which means nutritious too

    But very touristy - I suppose that appeals to you, too?

    I am American and I do use egg cups as I like soft-boiled eggs. I think it might be generational though; I don't know if younger cooks use them.

    I sometimes like to bring mementos from my trips. My favorite was a case of Limoncello from the Amalfi Coast. Touristy? Perhaps. Delicious? None of my family or friends considered it touristy or turned up their nose when I offered them a bottle. The only problem with this one is that it didn't last.

    When I was a kid we also broke them into a separate bowl to check them. More than once I got a fertalized egg that had a partial chick inside. Ewwwww

    When I was a kid, on more than one occasion, I tried to "hatch" an egg from the refrigerator. I would cover it with warm blankets and wait and wait. Nothing happened of course.

    I wouldn't turn up my nose, either.

    I've eaten eggs that were 4-5 weeks past the expiration date and didn't have any issues... but then again I've always been blessed with a pretty impressive immune system. I earned the nickname of "iron stomach" after one wretched meal in Peru when everyone got salmonella/typhoid except for me

    The worst was in college when I left a slice of pizza on top of the microwave for...a long time and forgot about it. I woke up one night, couldn't fall asleep, and thought about getting a snack, but didn't want to wake up the roomie sleeping three feet away. Aha! There was still pizza on top of the microwave, on top of the fridge! I ate the pizza and went back to sleep, leaving the plate where it was. In the morning there was a triangle of gray mold exactly bordering the place where the pizza used to be.

    I didn't get sick but I am a bit more careful now...

    A guy from NY who was working with Mr. Barbk back in the 70s had a mom living in NY who believed that he couldn't get decent pizza in LA. She would Fedex a whole pizza to him every few weeks, he would happily eat it, and the rest of us were jealous because it always smelled good. This was your basic cheese and tomato pizza; no meats. He never got sick from it either, at least that we knew about.

    Does Plushy flail like a drunk windmill?

    I'm leaning towards 1 tulip and 1 chicken, but I'm still not certain. They will be displayed in my kitchen on a shelf, beneath a wall plate of two Russian peasants making mad whoopee in a wheat field. I think the tulip and the chicken will complement the scene.
