Oh Bother!

One of my favourite Walt Whitman quotes is "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes." Right on, Walt! I consider being contrary a charming aspect of my personality. Please note I did not use the word "hypocritical", there is a world of difference.

My point is, and I do have one, I detest honey. It's vile bee vomit as far as I'm concerned. However, I use honey shampoo and conditioner, honey glycerin soap (both made by The Body Shop) and honey and orange peel body lotion (Burt's Bees). What gives, you may ask? I have no earthly idea, the shit works good.

And this from a woman that spent 20 minutes trying to open an organic lime soda juice thing, only to be revolted and threw it out because it tasted GOD DAMNED HONEY. *shudder* shock horror vomit.

I live you with another ode to Mr. Whitman via Homer J. Simpson "Damn you Walt freakin' Whitman. Leaves of Grass, my ass!"

Oh boy! How's this:

I love a cup of very strong, very hot black coffee. But coffee flavored anything? Barf.

I also love a nice banana every now and then...but banana flavored stuff, including banana bread? Super gross!

We're weird!
