A multi-tasking / shooting from the hip kind of post....

"No, Debbie....don't!! Don't throw it away!!

We LOVE Christmas!!!"

Janet has a Shooting From the Hip project going on....taking pictures with your cell phone of life around you and posting them on your blog.

Yesterday, as I was walking along a road that runs in front of an elementary school, I could hear the sound of a garbage truck....and of kids....laughing and yelling. I passed them, on the opposite side of the street and oh, how I wish you could hear the voices of those 1st Graders. They were having such a wonderful time. The garbage men, not really paying much attention to the kids, were just doing their job.


Good, but (for me) in moderation.
Oh yeah.

Wasabi-mayonnaise flavored Doritos?

Strangely enough....they were pretty good.
They have a nice, wasabi kick about them....grrrrreat with beer.
Not so good with salsa....too much happening, flavor-wise on one little chip.


One down....a gazillion to go!

Valentine's Day here in Japan is pretty bassackwards. It's frustrating. (Go here if you want to know more.) When I get the chance, I like to inform my students of the way we do things in the US on this really nice day to celebrate love.

("Men...give women chocolate.

Men...give women flowers.

Men! On Feb. 14! NOT March 14!")

So, on Wednesday, when I got to my class at the young doctor came into the classroom and he handed me this:BooYah!!!

mmmm, those wasabi-mayonnaise flavored Doritos sound GREAT!!! Like Ploughman crisps by Walker in the UK, YUM! I like different flavored chips.

Love how clean the garbagemen are :-)

I remember Valentine's Day in Japan. Ugh. Talk about backwards. Yay for the rose! Love it. The Doritos... not so sure, but I'm a classic kind of gal.

Sounds like a project I may have to join!

LOL I still have my christmas wreath (the gift from LLBean!!! GIFT I say!) on my front door. I just can't throw it out!

Sending you belated tomo-choko. I just love learning about the Japanese culture from you, even if it is a bit backwards.

Err, I mean, a bit backwards on Valentine's Day .. but you knew that, right?

What is it about kids and garbage collectors? Kids just love them.

I'm saying "awwwww" about the flowers. My stomach is growling in the background for Doritos.

Wasabi-mayonnaise flavored Doritos. It sounds flavorfully yummy. Thanks for bringing it to my culinary knowledge.

Those garbage workers are so clean! Nothing like the guys who roll through my neighborhood on Friday mornings. Yea, for the rose!

Vixen/Apron Frenzy said...

That is the strangest flavored chip I could have ever dreamed of. And how sweet with the rose!
