I like a tart kiwi

Don't mind me, I'm just pulling a cats bum face after eating an awesome kiwi fruit. Nice and tart and zingy. And a tangelo - they must be in season too.

I'm usually more of a vegies man. I like my broccoli, pees and spuds with loads of heavy spicy sauce, depending on the dish. Indian and Thai are perfect. But fruit, hmm, not so much; I've always maintained that if spring rolls grew on trees I'd eat more fruit. It has to be really really good for me to bother. What's with these big watery appley nothing franken strawberries for example - why bother, they taste like watery nothing. But that kiwi. >mmm<

God... I miss real fruit.
The fruit here tastes so bland compared to back home.

And Im with you on the cats bum face - you can so tell if something tastes just right but how long it takes to pull that face :)

I thought NZ would have done a good tart kiwi (pun intended)

Had a couple kiwi's while living in Oz, they were OK. What I really miss is the apple mango juice. Can't get it here, that and decent crumpets. I've asked Kimba to mail me some, but something tells me it might not taste the same by the time I'd get it...sigh. I'm really missing your country right now, I think I was born on the wrong continent...

I've had my fare share of Kiwis. Once you get past the accent they are OK. I know what you mean about crumpets. I could get fat on crumpets.

Dont know where you buy your frankenberries, but I would cease immediately!

I'm so boring now, I just eat green apples and oranges all the time. No variety at all.

Boobs - where did 'ja get em?

Leesha - pun again soon

XL - But still worth tasting.

Memphis - You know green apples were invented about 2 K from my house. True story. As American as apple pie indeed.

It's like watching the Law Revue at Benny Hill University...

Ahh Benny, bless his perverted soal. Now he's dead I think it is just Doug Mulray and myself who have a thing for buxom blonds running in slow motion.

oh, god, i think i need to go change my panties.

unique_stephen said...

Wow, that's tart.

Memphis Steve said...

Well, since the death of Benny Hill we briefly had The Man Show, with girls jumping on trampolines in slow motion. That was awesome. But the man-haters at ABC wanted to kill it, so they lured one of the boys away and then stuck him in a corner until the show was dead due to excessive Joe Groganitis. Years later they finally put him on late at night because, after all, he does have talent. But no more girls on trampolines. So sad.

I miss Benny and his dancers.
