These are fun to read. And tangerine honey is something I've never heard of but need to track down...

I forgot that I am double jointed also. Mike's Bakery makes great cannoli. Unfortunately I can't eat them anymore unless they are chocolate free - chocolate (my used to be very favorite food) is a major migraine trigger for me. Oh, and I used to always think Chartreuse was a pinkish color. Was shocked when I ordered a pack of Chartreuse construction paper for my class and found that it was a greenish color! I do like the color though :)
