What's with the odd tape markings on the platform, btw?? And have you noticed the platform being used more and more often for medball twists and stretch-band side chops?

I haven't noticed anyone on the platform recently except me. And occasionally somebody jump ropes.

I was at a different location and I almost walked into the Men's locker room. A few times....

Meal: Lunch
Some California Rolls
Also, some guacamole in my burrito

In heated discussions with an avocado SME, the following recommendation was given:

Quote:
Most people would put an unripe avocado with a banana to quicken the maturation process. In fact, apples and passion fruit have a higher ethylene gas release compared to bananas. Check out the link below:

Speaking of which, I docked them a full star on Yelp for not having a 15kg women's bar. I imagine that management is scrambling to order one as we speak

Sigh.....

I already asked two managers for a women's bar. In the meanwhile, I chalked up the men's bar for you today....

The past 3 days...

Breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.

I've been busy with life and completely forgot about a full bag of ripening avocados hidden under all the crap piled on my sofa (my sofa is in the kitchen, fyi...I will explain in a subsequent journal entry). By the time I found them on Saturday, they were in critical, but stable condition. The past several days has been an avocado eating frenzy; a mad dash to enjoy the precious few moments we have together in this lifetime.

Speaking of precious moments, the Seirus Quick Draw Hat (winter hat + balaclava) was a serious hit. The only complaint is that if the wearer tucks in her/his ponytail, it produces a Conehead-esque effect. Otherwise, an ideal gift for the cold weather runner in your life.

Speaking of avocado rolls, here are newly-uploaded highlights from the 1988 90kg class c&js.

Stay tuned for some rare Krastev footage in the coming months...

30-Dec-2009
Meal: Dinner

I had two avocados worth of guacamole with special ingredients. I can't get off the Couch now. Plus homemade chips.

In the Regional Avocado SME meeting today, the topic of chilling injury was brought up. According to avocadosource dot com:

"Chilling injury in avocado fruits is characterized by abnormal ripening, darkening of the flesh, development of undesirable flavors and odors, and pitting and darkening of the skin."

Out of 4 candidates, the NJ SME successfully identified, through mere intuition, the undamaged and damaged fruit (see below for results). This proved a significant feat, considering cold-damaged fruit are externally identical to undamaged ones.


The moral of the story: If perfectly good-looking avocados are on sale for a dollar each, there's a good chance that they'd been inadvertently frozen in-transit.
