you like-a da beanziz

Blanching of the beanziz night.

wash and cut
it was 10:06 as you can see. in the pm.

blanche for 2 minutes then quickly dunk in cold water...
now its 10:15

i did this while listening to Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, on DVD. Unfortunately, the only reading i have time for nowadays is to have someone read to me! works fine. the woman has a nice voice.

Just read the part where she was talking about how every city has a word. A word that its inhabitants think about often.

She said that, to her New York's word was: achieve.
and Rome's word was: sex
I think Rome's not the only city who's word is 'Sex'...
what would your city/town's word be?

lets think... sometimes i find it easier to make 2 or more words:

Dawson City, YT: exist how you are
Whitehorse, YT: active winter
Vancouver: mountain hip
Saskatoon: flow cavort
Winnnipeg: middle artsy
Canora, SK: Perogy flats

homework for you:
1. think of a word or phrase for your town/city/area
2. think of a word for yourself...

oh here's a story about beanziz.
told to my by a friend in whitehorse:

him and his buddys, while travelling in Mexico ended up getting invited to a part at the end of the night. turned out to be a bunch of burly, rough lookin, biker type mexicans. He was feeling quite out of place there and maybe wondering if they should be there at all.
Got in a conversation with one of the mexican guys over some beers and asked him what he thought about the really white canadians hanging out drinking with them.
This is what the burly Mexican man said:
"I come from a woman, you come from a Woman, I like tha beanziz, you like-a tha beanziz, We Are the same! "

doesn't that just sum it all up...
thanx for the story, D#2.
