Tonight at ye olde homelesse shelter we were inundated with free edibles. First, a guy from the Chinese Garden across the street (a botanical garden, not a restaurant) brought over a huge pan of orange glazed chicken from some soiree they'd just had. I mean a HUGE pan. Which was lucky because we didn't have anything to put out for nine-o'clock snack and let me tell you, when there's no snack, people get pissed.

Then, when everybody was reaching maximum capacity (myself included) on orange glazed chicken, we were hit with another humongous donation. This time, somebody with connections went down to the world famous Voodoo Doughnuts to see if they had any day-old doughnuts they wanted to donate. They sent her back with FOUR BUCKETS of doughnuts. FOUR BUCKETS.

Have you ever seen four buckets of doughnuts? It was awesome. Doughnuts of every variety: maple bars, old fashioned, cake, chocolate cake, chocolate cake glazed with chocolate icing, chocolate cake glazed with chocolate icing coated in cocoa puffs, cruellers, cream filled, white and puffy coated in cap'n crunch, cinammon sprinkled, chocolate coated in coconut, cake coated in mystery pink icing with a marshmallow. Every doughnut ever conceived. All right there. In four buckets.

Anyway, long story short, I think I need to go throw up.

Every doughnut ever conceived? I have to tell you, I've conceived of some pretty weird doughnuts. I hope those weren't included.

no. of course, i lied. voodoo doughnuts also conceived of pepto-bismal flavored doughnuts and nyquil flavored doughnuts, but they were forced by the government to stop making them. therefore, there were at least two variations of doughnuts which had at least been conceived of but were missing from our four buckets. not to mention the glaring absence of their famous "dirty" doughnuts, shaped like people's naughty bits. oh well. we hardly noticed the loss.

and anyway, "conceive" was my word of the night, apparently, b/c i used it in my other post too. i've got to be more careful with my words.
