To Make Up For Yesterday's Mishap: "Vegetables Galore"

Exercise #73 : "Vegetables Galore"

Make a list of all the different kinds of vegetables you can think of: potatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, etc. Once you've completely run out, go back and circle the 3 you like best. Also circle the 3 you like the least. Additionally, circle the 3 you have thought about least in the past year. Notate also the ones you have no idea how to cook and the ones you have eaten in the past week. Finally, cross out the one you find most ugly and draw a star over the one you find most beautiful.

As the same with Exercise #72, I'll just notate the specific questions below the actual list.

  • potato
  • bell pepper
  • pea
  • eggplant
  • lettuce
  • asparagus
  • carrot
  • corn
  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • radish
  • green bean
  • pinto bean
  • lima bean
  • artichoke
  • pulse
  • beet
  • bok choy
  • brussel sprout
  • cabbage
  • endive
  • mustard
  • spinach
  • watercress
  • turnip
  • cucumber
  • zucchini
  • squash
  • black-eyed pea
  • chickpea
  • parsnip
I actually could think of several more, but... meh. I'm being lazy right now.

My favorite 3 veggies: corn, squash, and chickpeas

My least favorite 3 veggies: broccoli, turnip, and spinach

I've thought the least about pulses, endives, and beets (That is, however, not counting all of the times I thought about The Beets from Doug...).

I have no idea how to cook watercress, eggplants, and bok choy.

In the past week I have eaten corn, lettuce, and green beans.

The ugliest out of all of these, in my opinion, would have to be the parsnip. Yuck.

The most beautiful, I'm going to say, is bok choy.

Voila! There's the end! :)

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. 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…
