I actually hate bananas. I eat them occasionally because I know they're good for me, and I can actually feel when my potassium is low. So then I have a damn banana and it's like a chore to eat the damn thing. I hate it.

Those are my exact thoughts. A banana seems like a good idea, but as one of my friends put it, you get "bananaed out"

They're just mushy with no texture. Would be sooooo much better if there was anything going on with them other than sweet banana-y goo.

I definitely miss the glory days of messageboards. I've said it plenty of times before, but I don't find social media nearly as satisfying, either in terms of the quality of conversations or the strength of the connections made. But again that may be changing life circumstances too.

As for bananas, they're not my favourite fruit but they're convenient and not very messy for work, so I often buy them for lunch. The problem is that, if I buy them on a Sunday, the first one or two are not quite as ripe as I'd like, but the one that doesn't get eaten until Friday is too ripe. Maybe I'm just too picky.

The nearest grocery store me often has loose bananas, either from where bunches have come apart, of where they've just been separated for individual sale. I suppose nothing's stopping someone from taking apart a bunch themselves, say if they only wanted a couple of bananas and not 7-8, since they're sold by weight and not by the bunch. So you could get several bananas in various stages of ripeness, and then eat them in the proper order.

Also something about putting the bananas in a paper bag is supposed to help them ripen, and putting them in the fridge stops them. But it's not something that I likely have ripe, since I just avoid bananas.

I think the last time I actually ate a banana was when I was in a hotel for a conference back in August. We were stuck in meetings all day and so I was pilfering bananas from the giant fruit bowl in the lobby to keep me sustained.

Yet last night we could have talked on here rather than Facebook, but what did we do?

Back when I worked essentially across the railway from a fruit and vege store, my lunch was their little tray of sliced honeydew and rockmelon.

Sometimes you'd be happy to give it away, sometimes I would use my fork to keep people away.

Had to google that one, but I had my suspicions. We call them cantaloupe. But I can see why someone would call them rockmelons. Rockmelon is a much better name,

I've just put a lasagna in the oven. It's gonna be pretty epic when it comes out, considering that by the time I got it assembled the pan was so heavy I had trouble lifting it down into the oven.

I was going to use the American name in parenthesis then decided I was lazy.

You'd better make that a teleporter, because it will be ready in about 45 minutes.

Italian sausage, ground beef, six-cheese tomato sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, and seasoned ricotta
