It’s Poll Week Y’all! — April 7, 2009

It’s Poll Week Y’all!

Okay, you can blame it on MizFit who put the idea into my head, but this is going to be the week of the POLL!  Can I get a yeehaw?!

Today’s poll comes to you from the people who, in my opinion, are just slightly below the Heavenlies: the pistachio farmers from Paramount Farms.  I’m sure you heard about the pistachio recall – it seems that a lot of nuts are being recalled lately (insert joke of choice here), and the pistachio people are worried that we health concscious folks will turn our backs on the little green guys. NOT SO, I say, for I love the pistachio with an unnatural sort of love, a love that can only be described as “a tad bit strange”.  This is the email they sent me:

“As an influential writer in the blogger community, we wanted to reach out to you in regard to the recent pistachio recall. We wanted to let you know that not all pistachios have been affected and that a new site,, the result of a collaboration between the FDA and California growers/processors, is now available. The site lists specific safe pistachio products and brands not affected by the or go directly to the FDA website.

To see the FDA announcement, click on this  link or go directly to the FDA website.

Thank you and healthy wishes,

April Shunn Williams
Paramount Farms”

What?  I’m an influential writer?  I think the word they meant to use was “immature”, but either way I’m more than happy to pass along the info for them.  And let’s face it, you stroke my ego and I’ll purr like a kitten for you, no questions asked. 

And this brings us to today’s PearPoll…




Poll Week is going to be superfun! 🙂

I’m bored and don’t have anything relevant to say. — April 6, 2009

I’m bored and don’t have anything relevant to say.

So instead of racking my brain trying to come up with something witty and intelligent (because that could take a loooong time), I wanted to introduce this handy little thing:  the poll.  Polls can be a good thing, I think, plus they’re cool. All the cool bloggers are doing polls, so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Here’s my poll:



See, wasn’t that fun?  This is what happens when you spend all weekend cleaning house – you have nothing fun to talk about on Monday.  Learn from me, people – don’t waste your weekend cleaning house!!
