beauty is in the eye of the beholder

i love ugly things.


a favorite shirt.

some favorite shoes ($3.74 clearance from target. come on, people. that's awesome).

my dogs.

hence my attraction to the ugli fruit, a mottled, lopsided member of the citrus family. discovered in jamaica (a naturally occurring tangelo), it was first exported in 1934 and is usually available at this time of year.
my first ugli fruit will not be my last. it was impossibly juicy, with an acidic sweetness. i sprayed myself in the face at least twice. far superior to grapefruit, in my opinion. no puckering bitterness. ugli is highly recommended!

Oh, yes, ugli are delicious. I've had them many times and I also endorse this fine fruit.
