Baby, it's warm outside!

Sunshine! Blue sky! No clouds! Cool breeze! Fitty degrees!

Man, March's feral cat just morphed into a siamese, and it is gorgeous. This is cause for celebration, having a grilled dinner, and walking around the lake.

Still, I am not the only one reveling in this divine weather. It's wrought many changes on our plantlife. The basil's secondary leaves got massive all of a sudden, and the cilantro is shooting skyward. We need bigger pots again. Mmmmm. Spring. Mmmmm. Herbs.

Also, I may have done poorly on my Herbology exam, but my plants in the greenhouse are flourishing. I ate a fresh bean today! Right off the plant that I grew from a seed! It was delicious, and crisp, and there are many more on the way. I literally just walked into the greenhouse, plucked it off the bean bush, rinsed it off, and ate it. Also, if anyone wants a "Zebrina Wandering Jew" plant to liven up a room, apartment, mother, or what have you, let me know. I literally have 30 plants that I have no idea what to do with, so if you're in the area...

You make me Gardening makes me feel like a natural woman.


Unfortunately, this natural woman has contracted the Hiccups of Doom, and they - in turn - make me feel like death. I just want to sit and flail petulantly whilst whining, "Oooooowwwwwww! It h*ic*huu-huu-huuuuuurts!"

What do you guys do in order to banish said Hiccups of Doom? Mine are exceptionally stubborn.

Drink a glass of water s-l-o-w-l-y while breathing deeply. Concentrate on drinking the water slowly.

Or eat some peanut butter.

Generally when I can get myself to concentrate deeply on something (thereby forgetting the hiccups) I am cured. I used to say the ABCs backward, but I can do that without thinking now, so it's no help.

See, my Mom always used to tell me that drinking water slowly would fix it, but it never does. =/ I don't know why.

I've never tried the peanut butter thing, but I do love me some peanut butter.

Not really, no. I can't get to them until after break though.

Lessee... my favorite methods are to either hold your breath for a long time or to drink a glass of water while plugging your nose. I don't know how it works, but it's never failed me yet! :)

Hah, it doesn't seem like it makes a lot of sense, but I'll try it! Thanks!

If silly cats that eat the plant won't get affected and get sick, I could steal one from you.

Hmmm... I don't know if it'll make them sick? I doubt it, but I can do a bit of lookin' to find out. The leaves are really thick and waxy, and actually quite pretty but I don't know what that means in terms of felines.

One way to avoid kitty-knawing is by hanging the plant though?

I actually don't think I have the patience for that sort of thing. I want my hiccups gone and I want them gone NOW. Slow but steady does not win the hiccup race in my book.
