    Making a note. It's been ten years since I drove in a parking deck.

    Must now go to bed and practice trying to read myself to sleep this early. I mean I need to get a couple of hours reading, right?

    Note I am one of those people who needs nine hours sleep, ten is better. You would not like me on 8 or less.

    I love DST. I hate when it goes back to Standard time and it gets dark early. HATE IT.

    Our weeds are doing delightfully.

    I'd probably be pretty consistent with shift work actually...

    I tend to only give 60% at any given moment anyway.

    I used to consider that the worst day of the year. Even the traffic seemed to be worse.

    Hi floozies!

    I hate DST! Don't care in the summer, but that's supposed to be part of fall and winter, the short days and early dark.

    LOML flips her days/nights every week. Don't know how she does it. It's brutal.

    Hey, guys. Yeah, not around much. The grandtot is fine and out of the hospital, but now I'm in here. Life just kind of sucks that way. Anyway, had two operations and now waiting on a third. So, not on much. Miss you guys though.

    This is how rumors begin.

    Me: Did you hear about Duchess?

    Person not me: Oh yeah, never expected it.

    Me: Well it is always the royal ones.

    So, I thought you would all want a Chermioya update.

    A little backstory: I basically bought the fruit cause it had the word ice cream in the title. I forgot what it was called, got help in identifying and learned I had to wait till it was ripe.

    Today was that day.

    I cut it down the middle as per instructions and put it in a flat tupperware. First of all, it looked a little like smooth white matter from a brain with these large black alien-like seeds scattered throughout.

    Still, I pushed forward and scooped the first bite. The consistancy was, smooth, but with a hint of slimy--enough to make it difficult to swallow. The taste was chalky, a little like a papaya (which I hate) and had just enough tart sweetness to compell me to take another bite. On it went, an almost slimy texture that began with an initial off-putting flavor that ended with a sweetness that just almost enough but not quite.

    Then I shifted the tupperware and realized it was not what I thought it was, and the entire time the juices had been leaking through an unknown hole and into my lap. I decided this was the sign needed.

    Here endeth Cherimoya.
