Naw, just for fun. Last year's the first time I ever did peppers. I've got a huge array of old plastic pots left over from years upon years of trees that were bought to landscape the yard, and I've set them all up on the patio with the pepper plants. The ones I put in the tomato garden didn't do near as well (except for the ghost peppers, which were nearly small bushes when the season ended and which had dozens of peppers I never even got to pick).

 

Apart from peppers, we do tomatoes mainly. Homemade fresh salsa is a highlight of the tomato season. The past few years we've done zucchini and cucumbers as well. The trick with these is to protect them from the rabbits until they get large enough to start sprouting the little thorny projections on the leaf stems. Then nothing wants to eat them anymore.

Most fashion models are lanky. They're basically there to function as human clothes hangers to show off particular designs.

 

In this case, I imagine they want someone with minimal physical mass to keep from obscuring the car as much as possible and further upsetting folks like Magick.

 

I actually have the right body type for fashion modeling, all bony and awkward, but I'm not tall enough.

Habaneros have a fruity taste? blink.gif You guys are not right if you can eat that stuff...lol. A little sprinkle of cayenne powder here and there is enough heat for me.....anything hotter than, say, Frank's Red Hot is verboten for me.

I get grief all the time about my "sauce collection." Every once in a while one disappears. A little piece of me dies every time this happens. biggrin.gif

 

And, since I missed it the first time I read one of your earlier posts, I quite like wasabi as well. I love that burning feeling that goes right up through the nose when I eat a hunk of it. Painful...kind of. It feels like a rather painful sneeze that never quite manages to come out. But intense? Oh yes! I've never really tried a huge hunk of it yet. Usually an amount about the size of a raisin or so gives me all the intensity I want.

Well believe me you don't want to try a large glob of it! Just awful! Does wonder for clearing the sinuses though. If you got a stuck nose it will clear that sucker right out :).

 

Speaking of which, have you seen the video with the lady eating a bunch of cinnamon? That was simply magical ;).

Thankfully models are changing, with attractive, properly filled-out women like Kate Upton. It's nice to see more realistic female proportions in fashion.

No, I've never seen that before. It was amusing and disturbing at the same time. Unfortunately, since the part that gives the cinnamon its flavor and heat is an oil, the water wouldn't help quite as much as she might have expected.

 

That reminds me of something kids in my high school used to do. They would take the foil wrappers from Big Red gum, lick them so they'd stick, and affix them to their foreheads and see how long they could stand it. Apparently the cinnamon residue would create a burning sensation on the skin as well as in the mouth. It was some kind of pain test, and if you couldn't handle it and dropped out early you were declared weak. I thought it was kind of silly and never did it myself. That and I'm not really wild about the taste of cinnamon by itself, so I never had the gum.

It is a bit more complicated than that I think. Some models are slightly more fleshed out, but they seem so compared to other models, but if you saw them in real life, they are still very very thin. And models for fashion show will always be very tall and skinny, as Muppet puts it, because they are walking hangers.

Fashion models usually also need to emulate the "absent seizure" look (exemplified in my avatar)... that way, they're even more like mere mannikins that walk.

 

FYI, the reason why I have that as my avatar is that, as someone into photography, I find her symmetry uncanny, but simultaneously, I find her vacant stare uncannily unsettling.

Last night we had dinner with Patrick Demarchelier. He is one of the foremost fashion photographers on the planet, in the top 5 I would say. Pretty simple guy with a crazy life.

Here's a shot of the production car. Sorry, there's a chick in the way. I hate when they do that. confused_face_2.gif



Did they change the lines a bit? Looks better than preproduction models I've seen. Maybe it's the angle.

I for some reason need to see her face before I can get on with my life.

We have much hotter in the house tho,...Guyanese homemade pepper sauce (my mother-in-law). Eat too much and your hair will fall out.

That was one of my favorite sauces. A ton of flavor. Unless i'm confusing it with their other one, unlike most hot sauces it was clear and gooey?

Goes well on almost everything. Reasonably hot, but I don't eat much really spicy stuff anymore.

I never really thought about it that way before... The hanger thing I mean. biggrin.gif

I'd gamble that her success is a one off, like Kate Moss. Huh, another Kate that bucks the trend.

There's actually a pretty good divide between runway vs photography, unless you're one of the lucky ones that can fit both needs.

No free donuts? Dealbreaker, as far as I'm concerned.
