Having mulled around the kitchen making the slowest arugula salad in Eruca* history, I am now faced with entertaining myself on this Friday night. I have cheese. I have wine. I have the new Martha Stewart Weddings, and i have Apolonia 6 bitches! Can anyone deny the brilliance of Apolonia? The answer is: no, no one can. That is, in part, because she sings a song called "Sex Shooter" and I dare you to read the lyrics here. And then I dare you to download the ring tone. I did.
Well, no, I didn't really.
I may as well also disclose that I am currently reading Prince's biography.
*and Yes, I googled arugula. Eruca sativa (syn. E. vesicaria subsp. sativa (Miller) Thell., Brassica eruca L.), also known as rocket or arugula, is an edible plant. It is a species of Eruca native to the Mediterranean region, from Morocco (where i just was) and Portugal east to Jordan and Turkey. It is an annual plant growing to 20–100 cm tall. The leaves are deeply pinnately lobed with four to ten small lateral lobes and a large terminal lobe. The flowers are 2–4 cm diameter, arranged in a corymb, with the typical Brassicaceae flower structure; the petals are creamy white with purple veins, and the stamens yellow; the sepals are shed soon after the flower opens. The fruit is a siliqua (pod) 12–35 mm long with an apical beak, and containing several seeds (which are edible). The species has a chromosome number of 2n = 22
