Lovely shawl... awful Jelly Beans...

the Jojoland Harmony Feather and Fan shawl is coming along nicely. slowly, but nicely. the colours are really pretty! i took a couple of photos without the flash, you can really see the pattern better in those. and one with the flash, which shows off the colour changes in a different light.




and the awful Jelly Beans?

are you a fan of Harry Potter?

than you've heard of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean?

yes... then you might know that Jelly Belly made 'em.

in...

every.

flavour.

here's the list from the back of the box: Bacon, Black Pepper, Blueberry, Booger, Buttered Popcorn, Cherry, Cinnamon, Dirt, Earthworm, Earwax, Grape Jelly, Grass, Green Apple, Lemon Drop, Rotten Egg, Sardine, Soap, Toasted Marshmallow, Tutti-Frutti and Vomit.

We spent our drive to and from Ikea today "testing" the beans. We each got a couple of gross ones to try. Somehow John only managed to get one gross flavour... vomit. I tried Black Pepper (not terrible), Booger (blech), Grass (not pleasant), Soap (yuck) and Rotten Egg (so. friggin. disgusting). Juliet nearly puked trying Sardine. Jake did NOT like Earthworm. Juliet claimed that Dirt wasn't nice, but not too bad either. i can't remember who tried Earwax.

hrmm... look at that list. those buggers made me try quite a few of the gross ones, didn't they?!

we laughed *so* hard eating the gross beans though, it was so worth the yucky tastes for the laughs.
