ex machina

the case of the curious bell pepper.

perhaps i'm a dolt but i don't think i've ever seen a green bell pepper growing inside a red bell pepper.

perhaps i've discovered a culinary oddity worthy of selling on ebay? i mean, if the virgin mary grilled cheese went for $28,000 surely this must be worth a few bucks.

kris thought it might have something to do with it's diminutive size ( late cultivar from our garden ), but i don't think small peppers typically have even smaller, less ripe peppers growing in them. but maybe i don't know anything about peppers ( shocking, i know ).

update: i guess it's more normal than i thought, see "My bell pepper is pregnant with an alien". best comment, "Please, don't beleive these people who say this is normal. They are unfortunate victims of the alien brain pod. These alien pods are placed inside seemingly harmless bell peppers so that it can implant itself in your brain."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
