all you can taco!

it's purt near midnight. i'm having a slab of salted watermelon and some chocolate soy milk. i do not recommend the pairing. (hiccup)

this afternoon we went grocery shopping. among other things i brought home a wee little nepenthes.

me: it has pitchers, see. (explaining to the sister)
sister: alright sam spade.
me: that's mean.
sister: i can't help it if you're a nerd.
me: who's nerdier? you're the one making sam spade references.

for the record, i didn't say "it has pitchers, see" in a spade-ish/noir-ish detective voice on purpose. it just came out that way.

sam spade...grumble...that sister...grrr...

there's a blue cowboy riding an orangasaur over my shoulder. not *over* my shoulder. but behind me. i left my toys out and s.b. had a field day.

one hand is holding a melon crescent. the typing is slow and flawed.

we passed a furniture store. the name of which: furniture for les!

les! is not due to melon. them's only got one s. the sister said it's a warehouse full of discount furniture- furniture that belongs to les. wish he'd come and clear his crap out. my thinking: maybe only those called les could purchase furniture there. but then it would have to be furniture for leses! maybe it's for one specific les.

not far from furniture for les! there was an all you can taco. i'm not sure what particular action is being put forward by that verb. i can't recall tacoing anything. well. maybe once. but i've never been to an all you can taco buffet. $3.99! all you can taco!

alrighty.

oh. happy may day!

I love the word nepenthe. Isn't that what Circe gave to Odysseus to numb his homesickness? I have always wanted some of that. (Wonder what the original drug was...)

I love chocolate soymilk, and I love watermelon and I like salt. But I would never mix two of the three! Salted watermelon I'll try though.

Try this: peanut butter, banana and cheese sandwich. Microwave it just a little.

PS: I like the way you tawk

I told you I wasn't your only fan!

On the corner of Valley and Fremont in Alhambra, there is/was a florist's shop run by some Chinese immigrants. They always had these really cool banners out, like my personal favorite "Every bunny love flower" for Easter.

ms.gaw, i do believe that is right. leastways, i know nepenthes to mean a drug that causes forgetfulness. if i was going to take a stab at what the original drug might be, i'd guess nepeta (catnip). it spazzes cats up right good but it seems to have a soothing effect for humans. i really have no idea what the drug originally was, though. all i've got is surmise.

markd60, salted watermelon is delicious. yes. try it.

about your sandwich: we need more input. be cheese specific if you please. cream cheese and banana i can get behind. peanut butter and cheddar maaaaybe. smoked gouda and peanut butter, count me out.

"i like the way you talk" hey thanks!

damon, every bunny does love flower. did you never see bambi? sheesh. ;)
