Something for the weekend

“So you would never order it?” Mr. King asked. “Never,” she responded. “I would pick it out if I saw it and throw it on the floor.” — me too, Julia. It tastes like detergent. [Read the comments too! They’ve been making me chuckle, especially this one (which I could have written myself): “It’s interesting that we cilantro haters have such a violent emotional reaction to it. I know lots of people who have food aversions–I have other things I don’t care for myself–but cilantro seems to make us all come unglued. It’s not just “Ugh, tomato.” It’s a toddler-like “Get this horrible, offensive thing away from me, oh God I hate it so, you have ruined my entire life by serving it to me!” ]

Something else making me giggle: all the fledgling ‘tashes being sported by men around the city for Movember. At least I think most of them are for Movember ;-) Natural beard conditioner | ‘tashe rubber stamps | Sgt Pepper wooden spoon set | mustache wax

    For me it’s watercress. I can’t bear it, and it gets randomly scattered over all sorts of things.I think most people seem to find it quite inoffensive but to me it tastes to me like something gone off. Taste buds are such weird things, strange how we all experience the same tastes in such a different way!

    The sustainable fashion article is interesting. But I did find it odd that the love she was talking about was just love for *clothes*, not something bigger (Nature, humanity).

    Great links! Every single recipe on what to eat in november looks irresistable. As do those persimmon scones. And I’m doing Chopra’s meditation challenge too! And loving it.

    Good shares!
