Whoa, don't throw them away yet. I'm still working over a few co-workers to take them off our hands. Plus, I actually know someone who likes to eat them straight. I usually give him a few too.

I don't believe I've ever met a Kumquat in person. So, since I've just returned from my week long adventure searching for non-toxic cheese snacks, I'll be leaving ASAP on a Kumquat Quest.

When will you talk about something readily available in my local Super Walmart? Like Okra, turnip greens or boiled pigs feet? (Do you even have Super Walmart's?)

Y'know, I don't believe we have a Super Wal-Mart yet, believe it or not. I read somewhere they intend to open 30 of them in California, and I'm sure our area is at the top of the list. Alas, I must wait for those turnip greens.

I think our area Super Wal-Mart would more likely carry Mexican specialties such as 25 different kinds of hot peppers and 20-lb. bags of tortillas.

We are getting a Super Sears, however, and I think my hubby intends to be the first one in the door. A sea of power tools! An ocean of major appliances! Every kind of nail, bolt and screw ever made! I may never see him again.

Did you ever find those cheese crackers? We're out, so maybe I can borrow a box or two? Cool, thanks.

I always thought it'd be cool to have a dog named Quat. Then when you called for him, you could say, "Come Quat! Come Quat!"

A joke I made up in seventh grade. Lovely blog! :-)

i wonder if you could make something like limoncello with kumquats... like kumquat-cello... citrus, sugar, alcohol... i imagine it might be pretty good...

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
