Book with cat: hugging book

Book #19 of 2017:

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is a Harry Potter fanfic that's longer than all of the HP books put together. My rule for including fanfics in my 50 book per year goal was that I had to read it completely and it has to be longer than multiple books.

I've read and reviewed this book a couple times now (this reading is number 4!), you can see my other reviews here and here. I love that fic so much, I'm ready to start it from the beginning again.

Currently reading: Madness on the Orient Express: 16 Lovecraftian Tales of an Unforgettable Journey, which is so completely not something I would usually read, but an author I like has a story in it, so I'm giving it a try. Surprisingly, I'm enjoying it quite a bit!

Cotton Candy Grapes

Did you know grapes that taste like cotton candy are a thing?

Did you know that they really, really taste like cotton candy?

They were in the supermarket today, and since I was intending to buy a package of them, I snuck one out to try. I was amazed!

Alas, when I got to the checkout counter, they rang up as $10. $5 a pound, but I had no idea the bags were two pounds each. I put them back -- I don't want to spend $10 for grapes, and doubt I could eat two pounds of them before they went bad.

But they were really good! I like regular grapes, but these were so much better.

I suspect you're not supposed to, but I might go back tomorrow and rearrange the bags so one has less in it, because I can't stop thinking about those grapes...

A video about them:


Edit: Wow, that's an awful image the video is paused on...
