James brought in some pears yesterday, straight from his own tree. This morning I decided to take the liberty of photographing them. And why not? They're pretty. Okay, so they're not pretty. Have I mentioned pears bruise easily? But that's just the beauty of home grown fruit: it has personality, right? It certainly has more flavor. The one I ate yesterday was probably the juiciest pear I've ever eaten. When I have room in my fridge again, I plan to steal a few pears and see what I can come up with in the kitchen. For now, check out them out in my wallpaper area.
Speaking of that fridge, it is currently home to the confectionary version of Tux, our beloved Linux mascot. He's about 98% complete at this point. He is looking a little surprised at the moment, possibly because he's still sans beak. I plan to remedy that tonight as soon as I get home from work. It was a difficult venture, but I'm glad we decided to do it. Be sure to head down to the PLUG meeting tomorrow night to check him out, before we lob off his head with a kitchen knife and serve him up to hungry computer geeks.
