Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s going to be a beautiful day. πŸ™‚ And if it isn’t, well, I have it on good authority that tomorrow will be better (I know people who know people, and they talk).


Did you do anything fun last night? El Hub and I grabbed dinner at a Puerto Rican place we really like not far from here in San Rafael and then came home where I proceeded to watch 27 Dresses for the umpteenth time.

Speaking of Puerto Rican cuisine, I saw what must have been the World’s Largest Plantain at the restaurant. It was sitting on a shelf with a couple of other gigantic specimens, but it was clearly the alpha male. I’m not kidding — it could have been a small canoe. I could have crawled inside the thing and worn it like a banana suit, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture. That’s totally unlike me. I feel like I missed my Big Foot opportunity.

Oh, well. Maybe I’ll see it again one of these days stalking prey in the hills of Novato… It’ll become a bedtime story that the older neighborhood wild turkeys tell their young. “If you ever come across El Banana, little one, you must freeze in your tracks! The creature has no eyes, but it hunts by sound!”

Okay, sorry. I don’t think I’m totally awake yet. I feel a little loopy, LOL! While I get properly caffeinated, let’s have some fun. You know what time it is, right?

    I love peaches! The thing I miss about living in central NY is the farmstand during peach season. I would buy whole bushels of peaches and just eat them continually. I’m surprised I didn’t give myself some sort of condition.

    Protip: if you eat more than five or six peaches in a row the acids can burn the ^%& out of your tongue. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

  86. Sarah says:

    i don’t like there isn’t any fruit that i don’t love except coconut. can’t eat it. weird thing is i can tolerate coconut flavored things, (like a fruity cocktail, etc.) as long as i don’t bite into the coconut shavings. i just don’t like the actual coconut. the flavor doesn’t bother me, just biting into it. if i had to pick my all-time favorite fruit, i would probably go with strawberries. just love them. and strawberry ice cream? yummm… :q

    It’s not necessarily my -favorite-, but a fruit I like that does not like me is cranberries. I love cranberry juice and crasins and cranberry sauce. They make my skin get all red and splotchy, though, and eventually I’ll get hives if they’re really fresh cranberries (my grandma made cranberry relish one thanksgiving and that’s how we found out)

  481. Jennifer says:

    Hm, a comment about anything at all.

    Let’s go with the languages one – I speak 2 languages fluently (English & Spanish), another language to a functional reading & conversational level (French), and a couple more to varying levels of usefulness (CatalÑn, Galician, Portuguese, Farsi/Persian). Plus some Latin, but that’s more a reading thing than a speaking one! But the list of languages I want to learn is even longer! πŸ˜€

    And my favorite fruit? Definitely a tossup between strawberries and green apples!
