In relation to what we're all talking about here, do any of you suddenly drop things out of your hands if you're carrying them? For example, you're carrying a pen in your hand but you kind of forget that it's there and it just drops straight to the floor.
Lol, yeah... I have been known to do that... That's actually how some of the things I've broken got broken in the first place... just me being clumsy...
I use more domestic sort of spices, I suppose. I also use a mixed spice; its in a grinder bottle, a blend of several different pepper varieties and some other things like allspice and coriander. I have another blend which I think is just various peppers and is in a shake bottle. I also use a chili/red pepper and have some other stuff for if I do crab/shrimp boils, etc.
Liquid Smoke is a fav of mine if I do meats.
As far as herbs, etc... I don't a lot of sages(though i suppose I could..), but I do use a lot of fresh onion and pepper varieties in my food. I'll eat them raw too, yummy. Red/green onion/bell pepper are probably the four I use most, though I do use garlic, lemons, jalapenos and tomatoes, etc sometimes. I like onions because it tends to draw out any dirt or contaminants that may be in the food(think beans), as well as add a little something to it, flavor wise. It goes in pretty much everything too... Garlic has a similar effect but it easier to overdo.
