Because there are lots of olive trees.

I agree regarding taste, though.

Which have been planted for a reason. It's just a better fat than some others, that's all really, and given that it tastes good, people are encouraged to use it.

For the record, I was speaking of fresh OJ. Quenching your thirst on that in the morning can be very satisfying. IMO, more so than eating the fruit. Would this be a proper time to add ymmv?

To me factory made OJ is always a big dissapoint.

I'm glad you at least agree on the factory-made stuff. However, as far as thirst-quenching, I'd have to take a pass, I don't find OJ or really most other juice appealing most of the time. Probably just the palate at this point as I pretty much stopped drinking juices, soft drinks, etc. Every once in a while I will have something fresh squeezed and mixed when it's out there and looks good, but I'm talking once every couple of months or so.

My go to 'soft drink' is tap water. If given a choice I'll drink water over most things except coffee in the morning or at certain nights beer. Sometimes tea from loose leaves (Darjeeling or Lapsang souchong or something like it). There is nothing better, to me, than cold water. OJ is only for some times. I just wondered why it seemed so strange to you that people drink oj. I guess we mostly agree. Only I wonder at other things. For example, why people willingly smell like (nivea) cream* or a fruit forrest. OJ I get, more or less. *When I swim in a public pool I can taste (yes) the different kinds of cream and perfume women (mostly) use. Quite off putting.

3/8/10 Kind of had two breakfasts. 8AM: handful of blueberries and a cup of coffee 10:30AM: 3 scrambled eggs, three multigrain crackers with three small slices of Vermont cheddar () and a cup of coffee Grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, tomato, spinach, pesto, balsamic on rosemary roll. So delicious. 2 carrots Some blueberries Diet Pepsi (stfu SField) and water 1 peanut butter cup, Reese's. They really don't taste as good as I recall so I tossed out the other one.

Conne, you're bitching about your weight in this threak and bitching (bragging) about a hangover in another? You see any irony in there?
