I'm it.

I've been tagged by Karencilla.

Seven random things about myself:

1. When I was small I carried around a stuffed Santa Claus. It wasn't jointed and looked more like a pillow. My parents visited a winery and Santa got a wine stain on his head. Supposedly he got smudged by a wine barrel.

2. There was a short time when people thought my younger brother and I were twins. Now strangers think he's my older brother. (Grrrrr ...)

3. Until recently I thought everyone used a ruler in the kitchen.

4. Don't ever leave me alone with your stuff unless you want it organized by color, number, letter, size, shape, etc.

5. Pink isn't my favorite color but I own a lot of pink things. Pink pashmina, pink phone, pink PSP, pink pajamas ...

6. Three Continents and Rebecca are two of my favorite books.

7. Even though I like cinnamon I am terribly allergic to it.

some fall flavor

It really is better to use fruit and vegetables when they are in season. Recently I made some apple sauce. I still haven't found the equivalent of a Granny Smith apple but it turned out OK.

Steamed Japanese pumpkin, with a green exterior, tastes pretty good. I know you can find some in the U.S. so you should give it a try.

Tom & Karl

If you are a fan of Tom Ford and/or Karl Lagerfeld you must see this video. I still can't get over the fact that they are being interviewed together. Wow!
