the grapes of wrath

Eating fruit has certainly become an "interesting" experience. First you have luscious strawberries that are now the size of your fist. Bright red and soooo delicious looking. Then you bite into them and they have absolutely no taste. Today I bought black seedless grapes as big as well, strawberries used to be. You know how the inside of grapes USED to be sort of gelatinous? Now you bite into one and they're as solid as can be. With absolutely no taste.

A new book out is saying that Charles Schultz led a "secret life" of misery. The "controversial" new book describes him as, "a shy, lonely man who used his child-like drawings to depict a life of deep melancholy." Controversial? Give me a break. I've never seen a more depressing cartoon character than Charlie Brown. Why is this a surprise to anyone?

Rap artist Nas has decided to name his latest CD "N---a" a version of the N word.
Gee, could this be a cheap ploy for attention?
If ya can't use sex to sell your CD, come up with an inflammatory title/CD cover.
Already Jesse Jackson has something to say.
Mushy, what do you think?

I'm shocked when I find any veggie or fruit out of stores anymore that has taste. We have lots of "truck" farmers down here. Sweet corn, melons, strawberries, grapes, black and raspberries..... so we do get taste, at least in the summertime

Pisses me off we aren't suppose to say the N word anymore, but "they" won't let us forget about it. Don't seem right we can't say it, but they use it all the time. Something very strange about that if you ask me...and you didn't.

What?! Of course, I asked, Mushy!

We inherited a huge strawberry pach - it's organic, 'cos of neglect. In season, the kids trip down and pick themselves a bowl each to go with their breakfast.. I've never bought a store strawberry since. Sadly, our grapes look like something the birds spat out, but we live in hope.
