GRAPPLE! Looks like an apple. Tastes like a grape.

This is a grapple, actually it's four of them. They are the offspring of an apple mated with a grape. Isn't it amazingly horrific? They smell SO GOOD. Sweet grapes, nature's bounty.

But no, they have the crunch of an apple, and I just don't like apples!

Stuff White People Like

Thursday, February 14, 2008

There's a new blog in town and we really like it. Thanks to J. for alerting us of the power that is Stuff White People Like - a blog devoted to stuff that white people like. One of my favorite posts is #67 Japan. Read on for a taste of why white people really like Japan. You know it's true...

"White people love Japan for a number of reasons. Sushi is pretty much the biggest one, since white people have spent so much time Sushi restaurants, enjoying the food, learning about how to eat it, and how to be snobby about it. This natural curiousity fills them with a need to pay a visit to Tsukiji and taste the freshest Sushi possible...

But it goes beyond just food, all white people either have/will/or wished they had taught English in Japan. It is a dream for them to go over seas and actually live in Japan. This helps them not only because it fills their need to travel, it will enable them to gain important leverage over other white people at Sushi restaurants where they can say “this place is pretty good, but living in Japan really spoiled me. I’ve had such a hard time finding a really authentic place.”
