Hell Hath Frozen Over

Naomi Campbell interviews Hugo Chavez (Hat tip to Ex-Everything)

HUH? Seriously? I don't even know what to say about this.

I am sitting here, jaw agape...

I mean, seriously? Naomi Campbell? Maybe Twiggy can arrange a meeting with Putin...or Kathy Ireland can have a "60 Minutes" style sit down with Kim Jong-Il in Pyongyang...or Sheryl Teague can schedule time with Raul Castro.

Maybe I should be happy about this...maybe the world might start seeing what a joke Hugo Chavez is.


Sorry, I should not digress into world politics on this is supposed to be about my life in P-Towne. So, I digress...I went to Costco earlier this week to get fruit. What is the world coming to when the best place to get fruit is at Costco?

No, I did not buy 47 apples, 2 crates of oranges, or 5 lbs of kiwi's...I did, however, take down a nice pineapple and some sugar snap peas...that I have to return because they are least the pineapple is good!

This is a very stark difference to the Cali style I am accustomed to...there, Von's or Henry's would supply fresh, supple fruit all the, I have to go to Costco.

I am like a fish out of water.

I'll think of you when I am at Henry's today stocking up! Guess you'll have to come out for a visit so you don't get scurvy!

WILLIAM said...

That is what I like about living in FL. Fresh Fruit all the time.

The Ex said...

So, how in the bloody world do you survive in a place with no fresh fruit? Farmers markets?

Also, whee, hattip.

Thanks Stace...I appreciate your love...and I will try to stay away from Scurvy, although a friend's kids just came down with Scarlet Fever...I mean, seriously. Who gets that?

William...Fresh Fruit...blah blah blah...I did have a very nice can of mandarin oranges today! :-)

Ex...I think I am slowly dying. I will be sad and pathetic...I think if I ever end up back in SoCal, I will be one of those people that think a strawberry milkshake counts as fruit.

The Ex said...

Or ketchup! Ketchup is totally a vegetable on the weird right coast.

It's pretty sad when I read the words sugar snap peas and my mouth starts to water... I apparently need to eat somthing...


The Ex said...

I tagged you for a meme! Whee!

I was completely impressed the last time I was out west with the supply of fresh fruits and veggies. I am by no means a vegan, but I love my veggies. Unfortuantely, it's just not that way here in the east.

I'm lucky I found a good veggie stand!
