"Fruit Galore"

Exercise #72 : "Fruit Galore"

Make a list of all the different kinds of fruit you can think of: bananas, apples, pomegranates, etc. Once you've completely run out, go back and circle the three you like best. Circle the three you like least. Circle the three that you have thought about least in the past year. Finally, circle the one you find most ugly; and the one you fine most beautiful.

Being that I'm doing this all via computer, circling isn't quite possible here, so I'll just fill that in all at the bottom of the list. Easy peas-y.
  • tomato
  • apple
  • banana
  • kiwi
  • pomegranate
  • apricot
  • avacado
  • blueberry
  • strawberry
  • blackberry
  • cherry
  • orange
  • clementine
  • tangerine
  • fig
  • grapefruit
  • lemon
  • lime
  • grape
  • guava
  • mango
  • papaya
  • nectarine
  • watermelon
  • mandarin
  • cantaloupe
  • uhhhhhhh...
I could technically go on, but I don't feel the need to add all of the technical fruits. I mean, everything that has a visible seed is considered a fruit, so that includes nuts, beans, etc...

I like clementines the best. So very, very yummy. I also like apples and cantaloupe.
I like watermelons the least. There's just something about the texture that makes me feel icky. Kiwis don't agree with me either. Yuck. And lemons are just way too tart all by their onesies.
I have thought the least about limes, nectarines, and mandarins.
The most ugly award goes to... uhh... I don't think that any of these are ugly... So I won't be answering this part of the question.
The most beautiful fruit, however, I can answer. The orange has always been extremely aesthetically pleasing to me. I don't know why... It's just been a visual fascination for as long as I can remember. Strangely enough, I don't really eat them all that much... I just like to look at them.

Ok, that's that. End!

So I just realized that I hadn't set any of the last 3 posts to actually post. I had finished them, but they were sitting in my computer as drafts. Whoops. Well, that's all been taken care of, and we're back up to speed.

Also, keep me in your thoughts still! My ex and I are meeting on Saturday evening to "talk." I'm not exactly sure what it's going to entail, but I'm preparing for the worst. Better to expect the worst that can happen than hoping for the best and being completely devastated when it doesn't happen. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what I want out of our meeting. Of course, I do want us to see eye to eye, to understand each other, but I'm not sure if I want anything other than that... We'll see. Once again... Keep me on your thoughts!

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
