Great, creative piece!

Haha, thanks! I just stole it and put my own answers! 🙂

N. Barnes says:

Oh, someone is having a birthday this weekend… I hope you have a fun celebration!

Yep, on Saturday! 🙂 Supposed to go out with my mom and husband tomorrow for lunch and maybe look around the stores some…was supposed to go out of town but plans fell through on that. I will probably spend Saturday watching movies and playing board games with my husband, LOL

Paula says:

I love we’re all thieves! lol Angel is so cute! She doesn’t look aggressive to me. 🙂 I hate onions too. I don’t mind the taste, the texture is just gross. Ick!

Hehehe! I try to only be one if I ask permission to steal first, though! And I only steal memes and challenge ideas pretty much. I would never steal someone’s work and pass it off as my own or anything. She’s not that aggressive to people, but she is definitely got beagle in her. She has killed many small critters that have had the misfortune of roaming into my parent’s backyard. She mainly just barks A LOT…
I don’t like the taste or texture but my Mom LOVES them!

“M. Mother’s name: Juanita (Spanish name but she’s not even a dot Spanish)”

I LOVE that! I don’t know why, but I just do!

I’m fairly certain that onions are vegetables, but I cannot find a definitive answer. I do know that tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash are all fruits though . . . and apparently (in my search for “are onions a vegetable” I discovered this) corn is a fruit too . . . each itty bitty lil kernel is a fruit . . . there was a whole website comparing the cob to a umbilical cord and well, a bunch of other disturbing images that I won’t repeat 😛

But more importantly, onions are sooooo yummy! I put fried onions on just about everything! 😀

WHAT?! Corn is a fruit? OMG! I love Corn but I hate cucumbers and tomatoes….blecch! I like squash though…..can’t believe those are all fruits!
My mom always teases that her mom must have named her Juanita because she KNEW she would love Mexican food and spicy stuff! 🙂

I know, right?! I had no idea . . . I admit that I’ve been arguing with my boyfriend over having corn as a vegetable for dinner because corn is more of a starch (so having corn and mashed potatoes for dinner, as yummy as it is, doesn’t really satisfy the veggie requirement, and is quite bad for anyone trying to cut carbs). Upon further research (like a whole 2 minutes ago), all grains (which is what corn is) are technically fruit because they come from the reproductive part of the plant.

You know, I totally don’t know why this fascinates me so much and I’m probably boring you to tears . . . *if* you’ve continued reading 😛

One more quick interesting bit . . . Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc. while scientifically fruits, are legally vegetables . . . something about overseas purchases/trades and whatnot and the government actually made a ruling saying that because they’re eating like vegetables, legally they will be vegetables 😛

Very strange but educational! Who says you can’t learn anything online, eh?

Eggplant, I hate it!

I have only tried Eggplant in Eggplant Parmesan and it was OK…

ElizOF says:

I love purple too… You have such great answers and perhaps that is why you enjoy those informational prompts… 🙂
Finally catching up again… where did the time go? Phew! 🙂 Happy Birthday! Haven’t forgotten. 🙂

Thank you! Time flies when you’re having fun! 🙂
A fellow Purple lover…I knew there was some reason why I liked you so much! Not sure why I love doing these types of things, they are just fun, I guess! 😀

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
