(As for ribs, even when cut off of the bone, I just don't care much for them)

Middie, without forks...I'd use my tools from my toolbelt. Yes, I am a walking self-contradictory oxymoron.

And, that's Miss Smarty Pants to you

Lychees are my favourite fruit. I found some in Marshalls the other day that were preserved in Sake....I ate them straight out the jar, then drank the Sake syrup... and I didn't share either!!!

*sigh of relief*
Glad to know I'm not the only one!

Kadesma - I just don't like getting messy - Mom said I was an easy kid (this is where my OCD kicks in) I'd beg to wear Sunday dresses every day and I never got dirty 'cause it was icky. (unlike my tomboy sister)

I picked the melons.. but, only because I had watermelon the other day and it was so good. I really love peaches and apples and grapes and pears and plums! They are all so good.
