Stayed up super late, but crossed a major to-do off my list. Slept in until I woke naturally this morning, talked with a couple of good friends on the phone while snuggled under the covers and then got up when I damn well felt like it. :)

Laundry and dishes are being washed and I plan to putz around the house at my own pace, work a bit, cross some more things off, stop and read, listen to MY music as loud as I like. Tonight is Thai food with the AWC, a fun group of people are signed up. The sun was shining through the snow a bit ago, which has now stopped.

If only my personal masseuse would make an appearance or perhaps those half-naked gentlemen that fan one gently with palm fronds while you lounge about with books and bon-bons. They alway seem to be peeling grapes for people though, which I never quite understood. Why would you want the grapes PEELED?

Why would you want the grapes PEELED?

To cut down on the bitter tannins?

hmmm... well okay, but I always eat seedless grapes and they're rarely bitter. I guess this is referring to grapes back in the pharaoh days, which probably weren't Thompson's Seedless Balls of Deliciousness.

Now, I don't know if it's _true_ or not, because I can't remember the source where I read it. But I recall something or other about breeding of grapes, and how getting thinner skins was an admirable trait, right along with the seedless thing.

Maybe if you have a thick-skinned grape, you want it peeled? *shrug*

Peeled grapes?...

1 - to be more like eyeballs (especially for haunted houses on Halloween)

2 - so you can eat more of them (ie less skin to take up room in your tummy)

3 - Cuz it's the ULTIMATE in being pampered. There's no real reason, except that you might want them peeled. *heh*

hahahah...sounds like you're having a lovely break from the family!!

sorry, Liz, they are busy here in Nynäshamn! (I wish......)

He MUST be busy! I haven't seen him on LJ in ages, and you're not around much either lately since class started again...or are you getting fanned?

Feeling generous? Be my guest!

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
