That’s Gold! Apples and Allergies

Posted by lanktank on July 8, 2009

It’s that time again for the worse material… ever

So what’s the deal with apples? I thought one a day was meant to keep the doctor away? But I eat apples every day and had to go see my GP last week because of my allergies. What’s that about? I think the saying should be adapted to, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away as long as you’re not allergic to pollen, dust mites and ginger cats. Also if you have one of those terminal illnesses like Aids.” Hey? I’d like to see an apple cure skin cancer – Doubtful. That’s the reality.

And speaking of apples, how lame is the name “Granny Smith Apple?” I wonder why they named it that. Maybe Graeme Smith’s great great great granny invented it. Huh?

Speaking of allergies (from earlier before), how bad is this weather we’re having? Any colder and I’m going to turn into a snowman…sorry snow-woman. And when my nose turns into an icicle and breaks off you can just replace it with a carrot. Wouldn’t that be a site? A blonde snow-woman with a carrot for a nose; it’s gonna be hard for me to get a date…unless I’m into rabbits! (Because rabbits like carrots)

There’s more where this came from…

Apples and things

What is up?

I don’t have too much to say today, so I thought I would give you a couple of links to help kill the boredom, pass the time or who knows, maybe even interest you in the slightest.

Before I give you the links, I have a question? What are your thoughts on Granny Smith apples? The BOMB right? Apparently there are 7500 different types of apples. Firstly, that sounds excessive but OK, and secondly I haven’t tried all 7500 but as far as I’m concerned, Granny Smiths kick any other apple’s ass.

I mean Red Delicious and Honey Crisp? Seriously? And don’t even get me started on Golden Delicious! I may as well be eating flour (which I have done and did not enjoy).

And to my dismay I found out that South Africa is not on the top ten apple producers of the world list. I thought we were awesome at the apple growing? Am I wrong? (I’m open to this possibility)

Anyway, I said I wasn’t here to talk so check the linkies:

I’m allergic to cats but seriously; why would you not want to visit this site and feel this happy every day?
