I like pizza fold overs. That's where I fold over one slice of pizza over another. Instant pizza sandwich.

What does that mean? Love the expression -- funny! BUT what DO it mean?
I haven't heard it used quite like that. I've always heard it like "I'm jonesin (sp?) for a Pepsi." Meaning I'm craving a Pepsi.

Where did it (the expression) come from? I gathered it must mean 'have a hankering for/craving' but it took me awhile. Thanks,dojilynn.

Is it a variation, somehow, of keeping-up-with-the-joneses, or something?

I don't know where it originated. You're probably on the right path with the keeping-up-with-the-Joneses, though.

Default DO Try This At Home

Oh, let's see. On a whim, I've had the following:

I filled up a bowl of Swiss Miss chocolate pudding and mixed it with some Cool Whip. Talk about a real decadent treat.

One day, I decided to microwave twelve strips of bacon and ate every one of them. That's right, twelve. Nothing else. Deee-lish!

And, on a few occasions, I've ordered a pound of barbecued pork ribs with no sauce and brought it home to my table...........with no sides!

One more? Okay. How about three consecutive bowls of Golden Grahams??

Awww man! Preaching to the choir here! Thats a regular meal for me! Well I wish, anyway.... but I have done this many a time! Why beat around the bush with eggs and hashbrowns! Just get right to it and make yourself a big part of the best part of breakfast anyway!

Does anyone else screw off the caps of pepper beacause they use that much of it? I do. I think I have a pepper addiction. I'm gonna have to attend PA.
