Laaaaazy Saturday

I think I’ve spent about 6 hours on the internet today. Not straight, of course, kids don’t much like that. We went to the Farm in the morning to pick up our share of this week’s harvest…I have a bumper crop of blueberries and will have to figure out how to make Vegan muffins. I’ve been making my Grandmother’s kind without the recipe for 25 years now, so this will be a switch.

She lived on a blueberry farm in Hammonton, NJ (Blueberry Capital of the World, the sign proclaims as you roll into town.) I spent my summers taking money from the pick-your-own people and trying to get out of picking berries. It took sooooo long. You could hear those things clinking on the bottom of the metal barrel forever. At least my barrel. My mom can fill a 2 quart can in the time it takes me to cover the bottom. The point is, this is the first week Hammonton blueberries were in the store, so I bought a big thing at Trader Joe’s. Then I got them from the CSA this morning, too. The ones from Hammonton are a little bit early yet…July is when they peak. On August 2nd, I’ll be in the neighborhood for a show, and I may make a pilgrimage to Hammonton to stock my freezer for the winter.

In my random internet perusings today, I came across a site that just had so many quizzes. Your Ice cream personality quiz, your workspace quiz, and…drumroll…your musical personality quiz. Pretty funny stuff.

What Your Taste in Music Says About You

Your musical tastes are intense and rebellious.
You are intelligent… but in a very unconventional way.

You are curious about the world. You love doing something new.
In fact, you enjoy taking risks and doing things most people would shy away from.

You are very physical. It’s likely that you’re athletic, but not into team sports.
You have the soul of an artist. Beauty and harmony are important to you.

    The trip to the farm sounds awesome! I don't think we have a Trader Joe's near here, but I am trying to learn where all the local farmer's markets are so that I can buy locally and hopefully organically :) I grew up in a town which was the "Watermelon Capitol of the World" 1932. They still have a huge watermelon carnival every year, though. I got the exact same results on that quiz. They didn't give us much to choose from, huh?

    I know, I was wondering what I had to answer to get a "Your musical tastes belong in the sit on the internet too much, and should consider engaging in outside activities...Like laundry!" Now I want watermelon.:)

    Same answer too. It would seem we are all clones. It,s so funny L, you are reading me mind again. I was working on a story about our family business, A Farm Market/Produce store.

    Mine read: "Your musical tastes are energetic and rhythmic. You are full of energy and can be quite talkative. You are forward thinking and open minded. You despise conservatism of any sort. You are intense, detail oriented, and motivated. You are an ambitious person, though your ambition is anything but conventional." That's pretty good, except the talkative part. I'm not chatty at all. Big K is though.

    Love quizzes. Aren't you tickled pink to find out you have the soul of an artist?
