What a fantastic list!!! I might do one of these too. You're so full of interesting posts lately! =) xxx

This is a great start to a list like this. Also, that fruit is possibly the FREAKIEST thing that one is intended to eat that I've ever seen.

Q 4/22/2009 8:10 PM  

I want to try a mangosteen so badly. Too bad I have no idea where to obtain one.

pinkapplecore 4/22/2009 8:24 PM  

this made me smile, thanks. :)

Cuileann 4/22/2009 10:34 PM  

Bambola - Fanks! And you should!

Cassandra - It is rather alien-looking, isn't it...but, Justine Larbalestier insists often that it is delicious.

Maya - I'd be grinning too...;)

Summermoon - whythankschickadeeyoushouldmakesureyoucomealongforsomeofthem.

Q - Likewise, sadly. At least in the U.S.

pinkapplecore - Aw, well that makes mee glad. :)

Love your list! I'm in the middle of writing a life list at the moment, it's taking ages because I keep adding new things...

I made my own. :)

Every time it rains she just feels a lot better... 4/23/2009 3:08 PM  

I love it! Except in my opinion mangosteen does not taste as delightful as it looks. What you really want to eat is rambutan, which you can find here: http://blog.hotelclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/01_rambutan.jpg

You should totally publish your poems yourself with lulu.com or something and give the book out as presents!

pakitroki 4/15/2010 11:46 AM  

I was mistaken as a Dutchwoman in Amsterdam!!! :O

Holly 4/15/2010 11:52 AM  

pakitroki - Nuhuh! How funny! I put that on the list because I'm part Dutch, and I've been told that's the nationality that comes through the most in my appearance. Anyways, lucky you! Hehe.
