Omst took our mutual friend Lauren to the Google vegetable garden. When his back was turned, she picked a pepper.
Five of us (including Omst and Lauren) were scheduled to meet for dinner. Lauren decided that if anyone was late, their penalty was to eat the pepper.
Dan was late. Here he is, holding his punishment.
This is a video of him eating it.
On the subject of food pictures, I'm now addicted to yogurt. Fresh yogurt, not the cannister type. Last week, I had yogurt four days in a row, at Fraiche Yogurt in Palo Alto.
You cannot actually see the yogurt here, since it's covered with pineapple and dark chocolate shavings. But it's very good.
Another novelty food item I recently ate was winter melon soup, inside a big winter melon. In chinese fashion, the saran wrap was not removed from the melon. Have you ever gone to a chinese person's house and noticed that they kept the protective covering on their chairs or remote control? We're like that.
By the way, if you were wondering about the title of the post, it's because the pepper was hot.
