Shakin' things up

I love re-decorating. Or at least changing things and moving things around.
This afternoon Jamie, Erin, Olivia and I changed up the living room. It was in dire need of a face lift and we gave it one. We switched the couch from the kitchen (honestly, a kitchen with a couch in it?) to the living room and put the table in the living room into the kitchen. It's opened up the entire room and I love it. And it was like "While you were out", the decorating show on TLC that re-decorates a room with the help of someone while the owner is away from the home. When my mother-in-law came in the door I think she was a bit surprised, but she's learned to roll with the (weird) punches she gets living here at 4 Norgrove.
I seriously get HUGE satisfaction by seeing a clear and distinct change from the way things were at the beginning to how they are now. I love doing things that are hands on and I can just "get 'er done!".
But a thought just occured to me - where are we going to play poker now?
...insert shocked contemplation here...

Jelly Bellies

My very first posting on my new blogspot.
I left livejournal for this hip, happenin' space on the world wide web. So far, I'm disappointed and frustrated. I tried and tried to figure out how on earth to post a picture in my profile, but I just couldn't get it. I also think that blogspot is having issues with posting pictures in general right now so maybe I'll try 'er out tomorrow.
But if anyone knows how I'm supposed to get a picture in my profile...please let me know.
But anyway, apparently not everyone knows what a jelly belly is (aka, Jamie!). It's a delicious, smaller-than-usual jelly bean that comes in a plethora of delectable flavours - in reference to my blog URL, the green usually being green apple but could also mean: sour green apple, watermelon, sour watermelon, jalapeno, juicy pear, kiwi, margarita, lemon lime, mango (which is really yellow with green speckles and splotches) and believe it or not, grass and spinach.
The wonderful world of jelly bellies. It really is a Willy Wonka paradise.
If you don't believe me, check out for all flavour listings.
My LEAST favourite jelly bellies (taken only from the 50 original flavours) are:
  1. buttered popcorn - if I wanted to eat popcorn, I'd eat it. But I'm eating candy. I want a candy flavour. But I guess you could say the same for the other flavours; I dunno, to me it just tastes WRONG.
  2. peanut butter - yuck. I hate peanut butter. Or at least this jelly belly version of it. Normally I'm a big fan of the stuff...but not in a jelly bean.
  3. tied for 3rd is tutti frutti and sizzling cinnamon. Tutti frutti tastes so...plastic. I can't think of a better word to describe it. And sizzling cinnamon just sizzles my mouth right off. After that I can't taste some of the better jelly bellies to be had.

Sigh. I still have much to learn about the jelly belly business. I think it's time for some research.
