Cashew City

The professor loves cashews. In truth, this is true. I wouldn’t tell you it was if it wasn’t.

Now, here is an interest.

In the PL’s America, there is an eatery called Cashew City. You can only imagine how excited the professor was when he found the place.

The building looks more like a hotel than an actual eatery. Four revolving doors spin around to reveal a lobby-store that sells already packaged and flavored cashews. The dining room is located above the lobby and is reached by a wide twisting staircase.

Despite the fact that Cashew City sells only cashews, it is packed day after day, dawn till dusk—which is an interest.

There are two reasons for this, I think.

Firstly, it seems that Punchy Landers have an inexplicable love for cashews. It is a strange integrated attribute that can’t be rationalized—so I won’t try.

And, secondly, practically any imaginable style of cashew can be bought in Cashew City.

Cashews range in size from jumbo cashews (about ten times the size of a regular cashew) to petite cashews (about a quarter the size of a regular cashew).

Flavors range from teriyaki, tomato sauce, and honey barbecue, to chocolate, watermelon and mint.

In fact, Cashew City offers so many different flavors that not even half of the list could be recorded here. Suffice it to say that practically any flavored cashew can be ordered.

Isn’t it remarkable?

It is rumored that Cashew City is owned by a person who goes by the name of Eoppers. But that person has never been seen. It’s a rumor; and rumors, can’t be verified. (I should really post about the inexplicable abilities of rumors at some point.)

But, anyway, I digress—slightly.

On one particular day, while I was eating at Cashew City, I was joined by a tall, muscular fellow, who had blond hair and such bright blue eyes, that it made the professor regret leaving his sunglasses at home.

“Care if I join you?” the man asked as he sat.

“No. But did I have an option?”

The man leaned forward.

“There’s always an option.”

Then he leaned back.

“My name’s Mark Malone,” he said. “You may have heard of me.”

He looked hopeful about the prospect, but I had to answer in the negative.

“Never have,” I admitted.

Malone waved his hand. “No problem. I am an ex-soldier, an ex-secret agent, and an ex-all-around-law-man.”

“Is there anything you’re not an ex of?”

Malone laughed good-naturedly. “Of course. Lots of things. What have you accomplished in your life?” he asked.

The question caught me off guard. “Umm…well…I…uhh…am a professor.”

“Of what?”

Thankfully the professor was saved. At that moment, we were joined by A. Furber.

“Sweetie,” she said to Malone as she found a seat, “I’ve been looking for you. I have such an important…job.”

Malone raised both hands—seemingly in self-defense. “I appreciate fully, Ms. Furber, the honor of a person of your significance seeking my services, but I must decline. You see, I’ve retired.”

Furber laughed—a very odd laugh. “You’re too young to retire, sweetie.”

Malone looked thoughtful. “Well…I have had the luck to be successful early. And in my profession, the earlier you retire the better for your health.”

“You know, sweetie, I don’t take no for an answer. I will have my way.”

And then Furber departed.

Malone chuckled. “You see, Professor, I have to stay hidden, or I’m attacked for jobs.”

I nodded. “Very…vexing it seems.”

“It is. Anyway, are you looking for a job?”

I shook my head. “No, no.”

“Hmm…well if you ever are. Contact me. I’d like to work with you.”

Malone handed me a slip of paper and then was gone too.

“Next time,” I said to myself, “I’ll see if I can’t eat in a more private place.”

Anyway, PF, do you like cashews?

    He sounded like some kind of nut *nods*

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2015 at 23:02

      Like the professor?

      • 3 sonmi upon the Cloud April 21, 2015 at 17:24

        Oh yes. You’re definitely a cashew.

        – sonmi nodding upon the Cloud

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2015 at 14:49

        A salty or sweet one?

      • 5 sonmi upon the Cloud April 22, 2015 at 14:53

        Salty of course. Apart from on Saturday nights *winks*

        – s.u.t.C

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2015 at 14:54

        Why am I sweet then? I want to be spicy all the time!

      • 7 sonmi upon the Cloud April 22, 2015 at 14:57

        Spicy is a different kettle of nuts to salty though, and one has to be sweet to get any spice at all.

        *laughs*

        – s.u.t.C

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2015 at 16:04

        Hmm…now that’s bewildering, madam.

      • 9 sonmi upon the Cloud April 24, 2015 at 16:06

        If I can bewilder you…my work here is done.

        – sonmi laughing upon the Cloud

        *pulls Sonmi off the cloud*

      • 11 sonmi upon the Cloud April 24, 2015 at 16:37

        *takes him down with her*

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2015 at 20:16

        Now we’re falling!

      • 13 sonmi upon the Cloud April 26, 2015 at 20:20

        *slaps him hard and he wakes up. It was all just a dream like Bobby Euwing in the shower!

        – sonmi, not at all in the shower so you can stop that thought right in its tracks, upon the Cloud

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2015 at 20:23

        Oh, I hate taking showers. But then I like it when I’m in it. Just like dreaming, I think.

  2. 15 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 00:37

    Mmmm… cashews. :-D I love cashews too!
    So, Mark Malone is officially retired? :-P

    • 16 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 00:38

      Or is this simply where he looks for jobs? ;-P

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:32

        *nods* There you go. That’s definitely a possibility, you know.

      • 18 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:30

        It is indeed. ;-)

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:31

      They’re the best! Well, he says that. But I don’t believe him. Do you? I mean, he seems shady.

      • 20 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:30

        Yes, they are! :-D
        I don’t believe him, either. I think he may be employing subterfuge.

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:30

        Cool. Subterfuge…is so cool. When used correctly.

      • 22 erinkenobi2893 September 17, 2014 at 21:46

        But only when used correctly. When not, it’s dadblamery.

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:38

        I use it that way all the time.

      • 24 erinkenobi2893 September 18, 2014 at 15:24

        Indeed? *looks mysterious and wise* :-P

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:26

        *laughing* Yes!

      • 26 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 12:51

        :-P

  3. 27 MikeW October 29, 2013 at 03:35

    People are making paste outta those. Just don’t forget about it after storing.

    • 28 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 13:11

      Really? Cashew paste? Does it taste good?

      • 29 MikeW October 29, 2013 at 13:37

        I don’t know. I just sort of look at it without taking that next step.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2013 at 14:44

        You should try it, Mike, and then report back to the professor. :D

  4. 31 jennifermzeiger September 29, 2013 at 20:20

    Oh cashews! I found out this week you can make peanut brittle using cashews. I guess it would then be called cashew brittle, but I must say it’s delicious. One of my new favorites=)

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:33

      Really? Got to try some! Maybe you should send some to the professor?

      • 33 jennifermzeiger October 1, 2013 at 00:46

        Would sending the professor cashew brittle make me a friend for life? =)

  5. 34 krugthethinker September 28, 2013 at 13:26

    Mmmm, cashews! I would really like to eat at this place too, even with the slightly strange company. I actually saw some cashew trees growing in Brazil years and years ago, and the nuts are so adorable as they are forming! I should hope Cashew City sells trees too.

    • 35 Professor VJ Duke September 28, 2013 at 16:23

      The place is very nice–if you’re crazy about cashews! Yes, there is a cashew fruit too, I think. They should sell trees. I’ll have to look into it…

  6. 36 Hazy September 27, 2013 at 15:15

    I love cashews, too! Roasted and preferably unsalted.

    Ooh, an ex-secret agent! I like the sound of that. Very undercoverish.

    Hmm… That slip of paper is making me curious. Why does Mr. Malone wish to work with the professor? Curious indeed.

    • 37 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 16:16

      Yes! They must be unsalted. How cool is this?

      Yes, very. Do you think I should accept his job offer?

      I’m not really sure!

      • 38 Hazy September 27, 2013 at 16:24

        Way cool!

        Is it something challenging? Does it have anything to do with spy and undercover stuff? I’d say go for it!

        Will you let me take a peek at the slip of paper? (haha, worth a shot asking)

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 16:25

        I think it does, yes!

        You mean that Malone gave me? I think the professor will have to go ahead with this!

      • 40 Hazy September 27, 2013 at 16:48

        Awesome!

        Yes, from Malone! that’s what I meant.

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 20:39

        I’ll post about it next week–if I remember!

  7. 42 The Dancing Rider September 27, 2013 at 15:07

    So behind in PL reading …

    Eek. What type of “job” may this be? I fear the professor might find such … work … distasteful. Then again, since MM is an ex of many things, it could be something you liked.

    Cashews are fine. Especially chocolate ones. We mostly use them in chicken salad sandwiches and on Thai meals.

    • 43 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 15:12

      Don’t worry about it one Punchy! (A weird expression, I admit.)

      I know! But I think the professor will accept…

      Yes! And double-yes! Sounds excellent. The professor loves cashews with everything–no exceptions!

  8. 44 Jackie September 27, 2013 at 11:41

    Cashews are amazing! I love them. :-D

    • 45 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 12:42

      :D Awesome! Not a better snack to be found!

      • 46 Jackie September 27, 2013 at 17:47

        I agree! I also love to use them in making super tasty snacks like “cheesy” kale chips. Oh man are those good! 8-)

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 20:39

        Wow! Those sound awesome! The professor is suddenly a-hungered.

  9. 48 Angeline M September 27, 2013 at 03:02

    Honey BBQ cashew nuts sound good to me, with chocolate covered ones for dessert.
    Take the dadblameit job with Malone already…oh lord, now you have me saying that. Go out on a limb and see what he’s got for you. Malone is an ex everything which means he retires, then gets back into “business”.
    Take the job and report back immediately. If you don’t report back, well, that can only mean one thing.

    • 49 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 12:41

      That sounds excellent to the professor too. It’s a nice cuss word, isn’t it?

      It seems like the majority of the PF wants the professor to take the job. Well…if I don’t report back, have a grand funeral.

      • 50 Angeline M September 27, 2013 at 16:36

        Shall we serve beer and cashews?

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 20:40

        :lol: Yes. That would be nice, I think.

  10. 52 Eleomer September 27, 2013 at 00:41

    Very funny, I quite enjoyed reading that! I love cashews, this reminds that I really should get some! :)
    I love the ex-everything guy, he’s funny!!

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:09

      Thank you! Yes, cashews are simply amazing–thus thinks the professor. Definitely get some!

      Do you think I should accept his job offer?

      • 54 Eleomer September 27, 2013 at 01:35

        Yes, I think the professor should take the job offer and see what it leads to. Could get interesting!

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:41

        Yes, really interesting! And dangerous!

  11. 56 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 26, 2013 at 20:13

    You had me at blonde hair and blue eyes, well actually it was at the cashews. I’d much rather the cashews asked to sit with me, as long as they offered to top off my coffee. Is there any other nut? Cashews are always the first to exit the bowl. Minty cashews…I can’t even begin to consider.

    I’m very interested in Malone, his slyish ability leaves me vexed. Chicky-woot-woot!!

    • 57 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:57

      :lol: The professor agrees: Cashews over Malone any day! Nope, only cashews are sold there. But would you try mint cashews? The professor isn’t sure if he would.

      Should the professor take the job that he offered? (Great use of Punchy argot!)

      • 58 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 27, 2013 at 03:13

        Nope, I wouldn’t try the mint cashews. It would be a disservice if the professor didn’t take the job. I tried. :)

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 12:41

        Oh dear. I suppose I must then!

      • 60 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 27, 2013 at 19:23

        You must!

      • 61 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 27, 2013 at 03:23

        It seems the professor and Malone both have a mysterious side..peas in a pod, possibly. Work dynamic is favorable…

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 12:42

        Yes, we’re both mysterious, but Malone seems like he could be a hateful individual.

      • 63 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 27, 2013 at 19:28

        I don’t see the hatefulness in him. I must be missing something..

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 20:40

        I suppose you’re right. Do you like him?

  12. 65 Lesley September 26, 2013 at 19:56

    Not really a fan of cashews, professor. But please find Peanut City! And I like this Malone fellow…

    • 66 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:05

      Really, dadblameit! Ah, peanuts are amazing too. The professor will search. Isn’t he odd? Do you think I should accept his job?

      • 67 Lesley September 26, 2013 at 20:08

        No professor, don’t accept! I do like him but he also sounds like a sly son of a cashew!

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:12

        He does! (I love that expression! May I use it?)

        But aren’t you a bit curious about what the mission is?

  13. 69 ladycheetah7 September 26, 2013 at 19:46

    Cashews are yummy! Love them with salt and as much as I love chocolate never thought about trying it. I will say the thought of watermelon cashews is gross. :-/
    Um…question. Who is Mark Malone and what need did he have of you? And what about A Furber? She seemed like a prettt interesting character.

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:05

      Awesome! :lol: Yes, the professor wouldn’t try watermelon cashews.

      Well, all I know about him is what he told me. I had never seen the fellow before. Furber is an industrial giant. (You can find her profile over the Hut. She is interesting.)

      Do you think I should take Malone’s job?

      • 71 ladycheetah7 September 26, 2013 at 20:34

        The name Malone. ..now I know. I am reading a fiction piece by Steve Berry and his main character’s name is Malone. Um, you seem like an adventurous suburbanite. I think you might tire quickly with intrigue and escalating violence. Perhaps he can utilize you as a consultant.

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:58

        :lol: The professor is! Yes! Maybe you’re right: work for him only half way?

      • 73 ladycheetah7 September 27, 2013 at 01:17

        As needed basis. Tell him you have other things to do than go gallavanting around the earth..lol

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:27

        Lady, you’re so vicious and I love it! If only you could tell him for me…

  14. 75 Taylor Eaton September 26, 2013 at 19:07

    Very entertaining!

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:02

      Thank you! Very professorish too, you must admit.

      • 77 Taylor Eaton September 26, 2013 at 20:38

        Indeed!

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:58

        :cool:

  15. 79 Anja September 26, 2013 at 17:33

    Mmmm cashews but I prefer almonds. :) especially fresh almond butter. Now I’m hungry

    • 80 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:33

      No, you like cashews better.

      • 81 Anja September 26, 2013 at 19:08

        Ummmm no :)

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:03

        I was just seeing how staunch you were on the matter. :D

      • 83 Anja September 26, 2013 at 20:06

        Almond butter is da best

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:07

        I’ll have to try it.

      • 85 Anja September 26, 2013 at 20:09

        Go where you can make it fresh

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:56

        I will!

      • 87 Susan P September 26, 2013 at 19:22

        Almond butter is good as is almond flour/meal. Almond milk leaves something to be desired.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:03

        I agree totally! Almond milk is dadblamery!

      • 89 ladycheetah7 September 26, 2013 at 20:30

        I agree Susan. Isnt really robust in almond flavor. I do drink soy milk and love vanilla and chocolate. Delish

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:58

        But you’d rather cherry milk than chocolate.

      • 91 ladycheetah7 September 27, 2013 at 01:16

        Cherry milk is grostastic.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:27

        Oh it is not! Dadblameit! (Love the word.)

  16. 93 sonya solomonovich September 26, 2013 at 17:01

    An intriguing tale. I hope we’ll find out more about this Mark Malone and Anna Furber situation. Cashews are nice, but pecans are my real favorite!

    • 94 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:33

      Should I accept his offer, then, do you think?

      No, cashews are better! The professor has spoken.

  17. 95 Tutti September 26, 2013 at 15:52

    YUM! I LOVE casew nuts! Did you ever tried meat with nut gravy? Mysterious story, the’ Exer’ should be observed °-°

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:30

      No, I haven’t. Is it good?

      • 97 Tutti September 27, 2013 at 06:19

        MMMmmmmm! More than good :-P

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 12:42

        I believe it!

  18. 99 J.E. Rule September 26, 2013 at 14:54

    How does the Professor feel about cashew butter?

    • 100 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:30

      I’ve never heard of it! Tell me more!

  19. 101 sknicholls September 26, 2013 at 14:46

    When I was in Costa Rica I learned something about cashews that I never knew. Not sure if it is true, but they told us that the cashew is actually toxic until roasted, and that is why you don’t find completely raw cashews in the store. The thought does not bother me. I still love them. I especially love them wrapped in chocolate.

    • 102 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:30

      Yes, it is true. The professor has heard of this. They’re very toxic until roasted. (The raw cashews in the stores are actually steamed.)

      Excellent in chocolate!

  20. 103 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 14:03

    Not a fan of the cashew…but I suspect I could become quite a fan of Mr Malone! Very mysterious! The Professor should take the job…

    • 104 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 14:07

      Not a fan, dadblameit! What dadblamery!!! The professor will work on you where this is concerned. I’m just not sure how… Why? What if it’s dangerous. You know, Malone is supposedly a fan of MM’s, but MM can’t stand him at all! Malone might be :cool: but there’s just something wrong.

      • 105 Jazzy Couldren September 26, 2013 at 14:43

        :roll: He ain’t manly.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:29

        :lol: But he’s your greatest fan…

      • 107 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 16:17

        I reckon if the thought of chocolate-flavoured doesn’t do it, then the task may be beyond evn the Professor’s powers of persuasion…

        So what if it is dangerous? All the more fun for the audience… ;)

        In reply to Manly Man, he sounds pretty manly to me – tall, muscular, blond and blue-eyed…yummy! Perhaps you and he should have a wrestling match so we could find out who’s most manly? :cool:

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:31

        Oh no. The professor is very powerful.

        Do you really want me to accept?

        Are you sure yummy is quite right?

      • 109 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 18:37

        I know he is! (I could offer a deal…you read Sense & Sensibility (the original) and I’ll eat a packet of cashews… ;) )

        Well…I wouldn’t want C-W-W to get damaged in any way…but maybe you could pretend to be interested just so you could find out more about it…

        I can only go by your description of course but – yummy sounds about right to me…??

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:48

        The professor wouldn’t think of making you eat something that you dislike.

        Maybe…I’ll see about it.

        Strange way to use the word.

        (Just got the dadblame skit for tomorrow! Yucketh, are we glad that’s over.)

      • 111 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 18:56

        :lol: Smooth manoeuvre!

        Go on… now that you’re cybernetic there’s nothing to worry about anyway…

        OK, he sounds wowawee-ish then! Better?

        :D Yay! Can’t wait! Is it Olmes? How dare you use the word Yucketh to describe my favourite thing??

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:02

        Always :cool: you know.

        *gulp*

        Much better!!!

        Yes, it’s Olmes! Okay, how about wowawee-ish then? Better?

      • 113 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 22:57

        Definitely!

        Olmes is definitely worth a wowawee! (Especially if my Schwarzy’s appearing…)

        So, as unbiased observer, who do you think is more manly? MM or…er…MM? (Hmm…that seems like a very odd conicidence…) But are muscles what make a man manly anyway? (Hmm…just suddenly got a vision of Rafa…)

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:08

        FEF’s too nice! (sometimes)

        Well, he’s not going to make an appearance, but it is one of your favorite stories…(and someone else that you like makes a brief appearance)

        It is an odd coincidence for sure. Manly-Man is a celebrity in the PL, you see. Malone’s supposedly one of his greatest fans. Maybe he tailored his name? Anyway… You don’t think muscles make a man manly, eh? What does, then? (I hope you don’t have nightmares from your sudden vision.) So, in answer to your question, can anyone be more manly than Manly-Man? Can anyone be a better dad than Daddy Salami?

      • 115 FictionFan September 27, 2013 at 01:24

        Hmm… thanks…I think!

        I shall resist the temptation to ask for more details and enjoy the surprise. :D

        I don’t think muscles are the only thing that make a man manly, no. Rafa also has a lovely nature and a sweet smile… Do either of the MMs have a sweet smile?

        :lol: You’re going to be in so much trouble when MM1 reads those last two sentences…so brave!

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:28

        I’ll tell you one more thing: It’s not as good as you would like.

        How do you know he has a lovely nature? He might be a beast inside. Yes, Malone does…

        Why? I thought I was being truthful.

      • 117 FictionFan September 27, 2013 at 01:36

        Oh, you always think that – but you never let me down!

        His girlfriend loves him, his family love him, Andy likes him (even when Rafa beats him) and he always stops to sign millions of autographs… what could be more manly than that! I definitely think I could get to like MM2…at least he’s not another Mr R-Y!

        So, so brave!

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:44

        :D

        Well, if he loved his girlfriend he’d marry her, I think. Definitely beastly–like the professor supposed. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning seem to like one another, but I bet that’s just for show. Secretly, they hate each other!

        Oh no. MM2 is the opposite of Mr. R.

      • 119 FictionFan September 27, 2013 at 01:56

        Perhaps they’re saving up for a big wedding. ;)

        Now I think I love MM2…

        Night-night!

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:58

        :cool:

      • 121 FictionFan September 26, 2013 at 22:58

        PS What makes you very angry?

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:08

        Why do you ask?

      • 123 FictionFan September 27, 2013 at 01:15

        Tags, dear C-W-W!! Tags!!

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:27

        Oh my! The professor completely forgot. Is there something wrong with my head, do you think?

        Well…getting interrupted when I want to be alone, I think.

      • 125 Jazzy Couldren September 26, 2013 at 16:47

        Hey kitty, he ain’t even close. My muscles weigh more than his body.

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:32

        Maybe a bit of an overstatement, MM?

      • 127 Jazzy Couldren September 26, 2013 at 18:30

        He’s a liar, Duke. :twisted:

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:37

        *gulp* I see. But I don’t see.

  21. 129 Susan P September 26, 2013 at 13:38

    I, too, am a fan of cashews. Did you know that you can make cashew milk? I wonder if Malone knows that? I have sympathy for the Professor who was looking for a quiet moment and ended up is such a drama.

    • 130 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 14:03

      This is amazing! The PF is as crazy about cashews as is the professor! Really? How does one do it, and what’s it taste like?

      Personally, I think Malone just showed up to bother the professor.

      Yes, thank you. The situation certainly didn’t help my nerves at all.

      • 131 Susan P September 26, 2013 at 16:57

        http://theshiksa.com/2013/06/11/how-to-make-cashew-milk/

        It doesn’t have a strong flavor. My daughter who is lacto intolerant makes it when she wants to make something that has milk product in it. It’s better in my opinion than almond milk.

        Malone does seem the sort who might do something like that.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:32

        I bet so! Cashews taste much, much better than almonds. It sounds tempting.

        Yes. Do you think I should accept his offer?

      • 133 Susan P September 26, 2013 at 18:52

        I would seriously want to know a lot about the job he is offering before I would even consider it if I were you. Can you do background checks in the PL?

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 20:01

        No. I could ask Mr. Magi, but I doubt he’d know. It would be a pure adventure–from beginning to end! Should I do it?

      • 135 Susan P September 26, 2013 at 21:27

        Give it a try. What have you got to lose…. :D

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:59

        My life?

      • 137 Susan P September 27, 2013 at 13:07

        Well, then, you’d best consider your priorities.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 14:59

        The professor is constantly mixing up his priorities.

      • 139 Susan P September 27, 2013 at 17:44

        After they are mixed up, do you fry them or bake them?

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 20:41

        Boil! :lol:

  22. 141 L. Marie September 26, 2013 at 13:33

    I love cashews!! I’m always willing for someone to hand a can of cashews to me.

    As for A. Furber, she seems a bit sneaky. And Mark Malone seems suspicious and a bit arrogant as well. (Though I confess I have a job for him too.) I hope you checked to see if you still had a wallet when he left.

    • 142 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 14:02

      :D That’s awesome! Yes, the professor is too.

      Very sneaky; the professor doesn’t trust her at all. Yes, very true. Too sure of himself maybe. (Ooo, what job? ;) )

      :lol: Ah, you think he’s that type? I think you might like him, though.

      • 143 L. Marie September 26, 2013 at 22:43

        I’m willing to be dazzled by Mr. Malone, especially since he’s an ex-secret agent.

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 01:00

        And he’s the dazzling type. I suppose you’d like to hear more about him…

  23. 145 MissTiffany September 26, 2013 at 13:14

    If Malone is retired, just what does he want to work on with the Professor? Also, for the record, I too love cashews. Not sure about the multiple flavored ones though. I’ll just stick to normal cashews.

    • 146 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 14:01

      That’s a great question! I should have asked him. See, if you were there, you could have helped me!

      I didn’t think I would either at first, but they are wonderful. Do you like chocolate-covered cashews?

      • 147 MissTiffany September 26, 2013 at 14:15

        Yes, I would be a bit suspicious about an ex-all lawman who is supposedly retired wanting to do some “work” with you.
        Hmm. I do like chocolate covered cashews. I generally find adding chocolate to something always improves it.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:28

        Yes. I wonder what he wants.

        That’s not true, dadblameit! You wouldn’t add chocolate to your tea, would you?

  24. 149 Karina Susanto September 26, 2013 at 12:58

    Hi professor
    I really like cashew as well especially fried cashew :)

    • 150 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 14:03

      Ah! Awesome! How about Chicken with Cashew nuts?

      • 151 Karina Susanto September 26, 2013 at 14:09

        That is one of my fave food as well, Prof. My mom often cook it. Mixed with oyster sauce Yummy..!!

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke September 26, 2013 at 18:27

        Yes, me too! The professor loves it completely! You’ll just have to make some for the professor and send it to him…

      • 153 ladycheetah7 September 26, 2013 at 20:26

        Yum

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke September 27, 2013 at 00:57
