Nostalgia and the Lonely Chiquita

In the old apartment, I used to collect stickers from produce and showcase them on my cabinets for all to see. 'See! I eat a lot of vegetables and fruit! I am healthy! And the best cook ever!'

I suppose those thoughts are a bit of a stretch. Basically I just liked them because I thought they looked cool. It was a bitch to scrape all those fuckers off when we left the apartment, but lookie what we have here:

A potential love affair on my kitchen cabinet! Now, I'd be lying if I said that I didn't purposefully place them in close proximity to one another. I was trying to hook a girl up! That Squash is basically asking for it. Ms. Chiquita, with her come hither eyes and perfectly coiffed hair gazes up at Squash expectantly in all his big-lipped glory.

I know, I know what you're thinking. He doesn't look too excited about hooking up with hottie Ms. Chiquita, but there you'd be wrong.

Can you imagine banana squash hybrid babies? I would call it a squanana.


  1. That beats the heck out of magnets! I like it.

  2. Mmm, squanana babies! :)

    You are my kind of eccentric, ha ha! I must also confess to loving fruit stickers. I've kept a few of them over the years too. My favourite is the one I got in Russia that says BONANZA!

  3. You have waaaaaaaaaay to much free time bitch!


  4. Oh FACE!I loved your sticker museum! Will you start another collection in your new kitchen? I will gladly come over and eat fruit/veg with you!

  5. @Pat Tillet: Thanks! Although I do have an unhealthy obsession with magnets as well. Especially my collection of magnetic poetry that I have had for 11 years. Every now and then I find the makings of a primitive sentence under my fridge or have to pry a few words from my dogs maw.

    @Mainland Streel: Ooooh how I wish you could post a pic so I could see!

    @Crazy Brunette: Hell yeah I do!

    @Jordan: Of course FACE! You should contribute some art to the museum too!

  6. Very fun! I love this idea. I need to decorate my apartment like whoa. You should trademark your idea ;)

  7. @NORTC: Thanks! It sounds like you could possibly be the woman to help me do such a thing!Until then, feel free to hook up all sorts of produce-sticker affairs all over your apartment.
