Green papaya, Douglas, papaya, not mango. And an enormous one it was, too--it turned into a giant vat of green papaya salad tonight, with the aid of that Real Vegetarian Thai book I've been neglecting a little too much.

Struggling with an article that should be no trouble for me at all, but that I've been putting off for months now, and it's time to paaaay theeee fiddler. I'm just tired enough now that if I try to write it tonight, I may accidentally stumble on something I can work with tomorrow morning. Alternately, I could get up bright and early and attack it when I'm freshly rested, but honestly now that I'm back on the gym-rodent regimen I find it hard to motivate myself until I've worn myself out. Which is kind of a problem, isn't it?
