Getting my bearings.

Tonight I made my inaugural post-Croatia trip to Costco with my mom. It was pretty neat. Saw a great wall of beef jerky – you just can’t get that goodness in Rijeka, some cool books, an awesome electronic piano (which only increased my longing to start playing again), huge-a** cans of tuna, and a very large sausage labeled ‘Yard-O-Beef’. We didn’t buy one of those.

Also, I was surprised to see a particular variety of fruit I didn’t recognize. They were called pluots, and, convinced that genetic engineering had finally come to end us all, I marched straight to my computer as soon as we got home. Yes, Wikipedia does have all the answers. I guess they were invented in the '80s and these soft, sweet 75% plum/ 25% apricots have been available in stores for a little while. Who knew?

In other news, I’ve been working a lot and this weekend I am headed to the coast with the fam. See you back here on Monday!

I just had a pluot this morning! It came in Organics to You, a local, organic, produce delivery service and it was delicious.
