More user pics!

I now have 132 user pics; see here. Paid accounts have gone from 15 to 30, and LJ has brought in a loyalty program where you can earn more depending on how long you have a paid account. 132 is the maximum and they just gave it straight out to all permanent accounts. So Vila (vila_restal) now has 30 plus any he's earned, which apparently might take a while to kick in. He might get a dozen or so more, though I doubt I'll ever use them all.


Tutaekuri

I bought some Maori potatoes this week. They're not really native, having been introduced from South America by whalers in the 1700s, but they're old Incan varieties: small (about a finger's length), cylindrical, and knobbly, The type I got are a very dark purple--all the way through--and the Maori name for them is 'tutaekuri', printed right there on the packaging. My father spoke Maori and he taught me enough to know what that means: 'dog shit'. And they do look like it too. :-) It's not often you find a product so open about its appearance.

As for taste, they're very nice, like some of the more old-fashioned potato varieties grown in people's gardens, and not at all purple.
