  1. Good blueberry pie (and I can't recall a bad one) is one of life's great treats. Where you live, are there any, ahem, real restaurants that offer lots of types of pies? Blueberry, perhaps? Worth checking out, I'd think.

    1. Hey Nancy! I adore it, but no, we're not a pie nation. Apple if you're lucky, and usually pretty mediocre. My mum makes good pie, mind. *tummy rumbles* Indigo x

  2. How sad to hear that the indigo pies have not made a comeback. Perhaps if you wait another 20 years?

  3. Oh Yikes! Fried pies? No, tell me you are joking! Not fried pies! That's just wrong on so many levels.

    1. Hey Linda! I know, but it was all about the yummy filling. Damn, it was GOOD! Besides, I was young and foolish; I'm older now. Indigo x

  4. One of those pies has not crossed my lips since before YOU were born, probably :) Not that I haven't wanted one, I just haven't been at McDonalds for a long time, except to get a wee little hamburger once in awhile. Seriously, the wee-est one they have.

    So did this have anything to do with your writing name? Or is that story somewhere on your blog and I need to ferret it out?

    1. Hey Jenny! My name? You'd have to ask my parents. Or grandma Juno, who I think had a hand in it? Maybe THEY liked Indigo-coloured fruit? Who knows. Tho I was raised by badgers, obviously. Indigo x

  5. Now you've got me thinking about the pie place of my youth and they're orgasmic blueberry cream pie. Of course, I didn't realize it was orgasmic then. I was young. What did I know of orgasms? I just knew it was the most wonderful pie ever.
    And I'm with Linda on the fried pies.

  6. I usually avoid a certain fast food chain like the plague... but I do think wistfully of those fried pies on occasion.

    1. Hey Paula! I have the fried pies infrequently, as I'm not actually that fond of their "classic" apple. I usually save myself for their mincemeat and custard ones at Christmaws, which are lovely, and a nice festive treat. I think of them as a hot dessert rather than an actual PIE, of course. Indigo x

  8. In equal parts, this post made me nostalgic, a little sad and hungry. I think I'll eat a quart of ice cream while reminiscing about my lost youth and having a good cry.

    And for the record, nobody is a morning person. I believe it's against the law.

    1. Hey Nicky! I'll accept all of those compliments. Anything entry that evokes a response can't be all bad. And, erm... what ice cream do you have? Got a spare spoon? You know, I REALLY need to tour North America. I'll call it the Sugar Rush and get some t-shirts printed. *hopes for a lottery win* Indigo x

    1. Hey Eolist! Pumpkin custard?! That's intriguing. *puts Eolist at the start of the Sugar Rush Tour* Dammit, I do love dessert! Roth x

  10. I'm neither a morning nor a Fastfood-let's-call-it-McDonald's person. Worse, as an Austrian who's been all but breast-fed real, strong, freshly ground Austrian coffee, it is out of the question for me to have a cuppa at Mc or Starbuck's. But I'm very much a blueberry person. The best way to enjoy them, as I remember, is after having handpicked them while hiking on a mountain path in the Alps in summer, then come back home, wash them berries, cover them with some sugar and whipped cream and sit down on my mom's balcony, streching aching toes into summer fans, and spoon'em in. Now that's an experience one never forgets... even now, I'm positively slobbering all over my keyboard.

    1. Hey Dieter! Good to see you! That's quite a picture you've painted, it's making me hungry too! In fact, I have some blueberries and yoghurt in the fridge... Indigo

  11. I still remember a throwaway line from some ancient essay: "we all like to think we learn from our mistakes, but who among us has burnt the roof of his mouth on pizza for the last time?"

    1. Hey Murr! That, I believe, is Wisdom. I think Kafka.nailed it: "There s always hope. Except for Man.". He sounds like a fella who'd had a few slices of Cheese Lovers. Roth x

    1. Hey Mia! I went to see my mum earlier, and she sent me home with a big slice of gooseberry pie! It was epic! Sorry, I'm not helping, am I? Indigo x

  13. Oh yes, they ARE delicious. The blueberry is my favorite too, and they sell them here year round! Want me to send you a few? :P
