★~ Banana Lover’s Day:
Talk about taking bananas to a new height….2 Bananas, 1,135 Feet and 1 Ridiculously Dangerous Selfi
What starts out looking like a normal and potassium-filled selfie turns into an acrophobia’s nightmare.
Photographers Daniel Lau, Andrew Tso and an unnamed friend took an incredibly dangerous, yet casual selfie atop the the Centre in Hong Kong, a skyscraper that tops out at 1,135 feet.
This isn’t the first time the team has taken a risky shot though, Tso’s website has a collection of dangerous photographs taken from staggering heights.
Hopefully they didn’t slip on those banana peels on the way down.
Odd has covered the subject of Bananas a bunch of times
Showed you how to peel a banana with their toes.
For those of you who don’t like bananas, El Morno shared an evil banana story
Happy Banana Day!
★~ Just Because Day:
Just Because Day is a day to do things just because you want to — no rhyme, no reason needed. Celebrate today by doing anything you want . . . just because.
★~ Pots de Creme Day:
Before I share with you how to make this magnifique dessert, let’s learn how to say it the correct way: We do NOT pronounce Pots de Crème “Pawts deh Crème” but instead pronounce it “Po de Krehm,” or, if you want to show off and can do a fair imitation of a French accent, “Po de kehm.” Ok, now that we have the pronunciation down, here is a recipe that even I can make.
