Yes, it is. Why would you want to do the same boring, mundane thing every single day and then on the weekends do the same boring, mundane thing that you've done every weekend for the last 20 years?
Do something different! Change something! Spice up your life!
Heck, if I'd been content to drive the same truck every day, punch the same clock, receive a really good paycheck with awesome benefits, ride the bike on the same roads/trails as the previous 1231 weekends, teach the same stuff four times a week in the evenings; well, gosh.
I certainly wouldn't be in Australia if I wanted to do the same thing day in and day out.
And I certainly wouldn't have an outdoor pool. I hear they aren't too common up in Fairbanks for some reason.
And I certainly would still be working!
You owe it to yourself to TRY SOMETHING NEW!
Variety is the SPICE of life. And if you don't like spices in your life then you are probably only popular at a Star Trek Trivial Pursuit convention. Jus' sayin'.
Speaking of spices... I happened upon a couple of really nice chilli peppers the other day.
I have tentatively identified them as a sub-species of Capsicum annuum. I do believe they are the cayenne variety.
These puppies are 20 times hotter than a jalapeno and 10 times hotter than tabasco sauce. However, they are only 1/5th the hotness of the thai peppers I grow (got 9 really awesome thai chilli plants this year). But hey, they are still good.
Lookie here if'ns ya don't beeleave me:
To do what I planned to do with them (GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER!), I first needed to snip the stems.
BTW, Mundial kitchen shears are da bomb! Hand crafted in Madrid, doncha know.
And I also needed to pierce them full of holes:
You'll notice I don't wear rubber gloves when handling chillis. It's cus I'm not a wuss. Besides, I've got so many callouses from, ah, um, er, other activities that I don't have to worry about and juice stinging.
But what am I planning on doing with these chillis? Weeeeeeelllllllllll, since you asked...
This is a 750 ml bottle ready for BEER! 750 mls is twice the size of wussie US beers, BTW. These are BIG chillis!
They barely even fit!
One with, one without.
Soon to be both "with".
And after a nice lager has been added to do it's secondary fermentation in the bottle
I'll let you know how they taste in about a week from now.
Hey, take a chance! Ya never know!
