Kumquatus Domesticus

Last week the kumquat was sick. She has gotten mostly better, yet is, annoyingly, still very tired. In an effort to make her puny-ness go away, she has not been going out (in hopes of sleeping early.)

This effort towards somnolence has resulted in a strange domesticity. She has cleaned instead of messing. She has gardened instead of ignoring. She has cooked instead of taking-out. She has baked a cake instead of, well, not baking one. She was just outside talking to the neighbors instead of grumbling at them from the comfort of her bed when they have the gall to make noise as early as noon on the weekends.

It's very strange.

The kumquat thinks that someone needs to stop her before she organizes a block party.

Quiz Time!

So, do the kumquat's readers know what's almost as cute as the lemon in her last post?

Answer: That her last post (lemon!) was the kumquat's 66th post. On 6/6/06.

All together now-- awwww!

The kumquat's PG&E bill was also due today. Somehow the loquat thought that was significant, too. (The kumquat just found it amusing that elections were today... appropriate, somehow....)

Lemon Spawn!

No, the kumquat has not added another fruit alias-- she has added a fruit!














Her very own scrawny lemon-tree-that-never-gets-enough-water has reproduced! (The kumquat supposes that she must grudgingly admit that all of the mean precipitation was good for something...)

Its progeny has been captured by the wonder of technology that is the kumquat's camera phone.

Isn't it cute?!?!?
