Journal Journal: Do you like soggy Frosted Flakes?

Ok I've had a couple people ask me what my .sig ["Do you like Soggy Frosted Flakes?"] means. Ok here's the story.

Back in my BBS days [early to mid 90's] I was at a BBS gathering, and I ended up talking on the phone with a girl from the board that wasn't at the gathering. We were talking for quite some time, when all of a sudden, completely out of the blue, she asks me: "Do you like soggy Frosted Flakes?".
I answered [no] and when I asked what brought her to ask me that question, she said she didn't really have any idea, she just asked it.

So ever since, anytime anyone says something that is completely out of left field, or that has absolutely NO relation to the current conversation, I reply with "Do you like soggy Frosted Flakes?"
I figure Slashdot is full of comments that have no relation to the current discussion, so I made it as my .sig..

And that's the story behind my .sig.
