So my personal trainer worked me within an inch of my life today, encouraging me enough with the phrase "You can rest when you're dead," over and over and over.

So of course, I get home and discover I have four of the most gorgeously ripe mangoes in the fruit bowl. So I made some of this delovely Lime-Chile Mango sorbet, which, I assure you, is forever to die for.

Love Hungry Foods Pharmacy. Lovely little recipes.

2 large, ripe mangoes
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon chile powder, plus extra for garnish

I love mine really really full o' zing, so I use about 2-3 tablespoons of the lime juice.

I'm not one for following directions, so I just threw everything in a blender, chilled it,and let it run in me ice-cream maker for about 30 minutes. Nom nom nom nom nom.

Desperately finished packing afterwards, went out for sushi with my friend Anthony, whom I will miss dearly. It's sort of sinking in that I'm leaving in a little over a week. Ahhh.

Salved it with Mass Effect at his house. Determined to finish the whole thing by the time I leave as my FUCKING PS3 won't take too many discs unless I let it sit for 20 or so minutes. Anyone else had this kinda problem? I must switch over to the beautiful world of the XBox. Alas, I have Heavy Rain and Ratchet and Clank that I'd be leaving behind...... :(

Alas.....accidentally hit Anthony in the gentlemen's region when I tossed the game controller to him. Think he's still feeling it. Oops. Well, he wasn't looking. Held his hand out. Still.....yeah. Feel a little bad for that.

I leave you with an amusing video (or at least I thought so) and the Drag Queen name of the day:

Ginger Vitis.
