It's a Sweet, Sweet World!



What are those, you ask? These are what boiled lollies look like in 2003. Last time I tried boiled lollies I thought they were terrible; things that only our parents generation enjoyed because they didn't have enough access to chocolate! Now, however, I understand the appeal. Every different colour has a specific and rather nice flavour. The orange ones taste like orange, yellow as lemon, light green as lime, dark green with red centre something approximating watermelon and the light blue ones taste just grand, but I can't actually identify what they're supposed to be. These lollies, incidentally, were part of the prize that our table won at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance quiz night last night. We came second after three tie-breakers! And how does this picture end up gracing your screen: that's right, Tama's got a new digital camera! Woohoo! Actually, it's the cheapest little thing: only $180 and fairly limited functionality, but it takes an okay picture, and that's all I really need. Now you ask yourself, has this Blog gone so far downhill it'll all be what Tama ate today and what Tama purchased last week? No, probably not, but I couldn't think of anything else exciting to talk about this morning ... unless you want me to rant about the trials and tribulations of the New York Times and the sad state of affairs that has one journo making false reports, and two main editors shielding him (who quit last week). Nope, not going there today. ;)
