…it’s all in the BEANS!
I’m on the move to Goose, so I wrote my MAGIC MONDAY post yesterday, hope the staff is able to push the publish-button…
So. Beans. Beans are good. They are Kyla-proved and we can trust her. Beans aren’t only food, you can create your own whirlpool if you eat them before taking a bath, you can be your own orchestra while singing, you can chase annoying people away with your own bean-bomb, you can put it in your ears or nose for enjoying a torture-session at the otolaryngologist and you can do magic. Yes! Today I show you a magic ritual with beans. It’s a love ritual because on thursday is the day of St. Valentine and my vet-appointment.
NAME: BUTTAR LE FAVE – Bean throwing (no, not with “predigested” beans, we use mint beans)
ORIGIN: Italy/Venice 16/17th century
RESULT: If you want to know if someone is in love with you or will still love you – you can read it in the beans
You need: 18 dried BEANS – not the common tasty green beans, use something like this :
Take two of the beans and make a sign on both – one sign which stands for you, one sign which stands for your partner or your object of desire. Then put all 18 beans together in a bowl or a box and shake them while concentrating on the question “will he/she always love me” (or even for one night, what ever you want to know). Now you take the beans in your hand and throw it straight in the air. If the two signed beans are laying together after landing on the floor, you have the proof that you will beloved of the person you picked. If they are laying far away from each other, you should change your mind or buy a pair of shoes – that’s the best medecine if you have lovesickness.
Make sure that you throw the beans outside or on a place with enough space, it’s annoying to drag a sofa away or to crawl under a cupboard.
If you haven’t dried beans at home, you can use coffee beans too. I’ve tried the love ritual by writing the names of 18 girls on every bean, so I’m sure that one of them will love me. Am I a genius? YES, I am, because I’m a LADY’s MAN – that’s proved. Look:
I’ve got this wonderful picture from Anne of PAWSITVELY PETS and YEP! She is right! THANK YOU!!!!!!
I think the people of venice performed this ritual always inside, otherwise they would never experience the result – because of this geographical phenomena:
HAVE A MAGIC MONDAY ALL – SEE YOU AT THE BALL
Beans make me poop! I guess one of the minuses of living in the U.S. is Valentine’s Day comes earlier for you guys. Doing our post Thursday 🙂
haha but I think that’s the only one minus point. on the other hand – you can celebrate and my Valentine’s Day is over…
Beans are always great – they can provide me a lot of room in my bed ;o)
Loving the ‘magic’ beans!
See you at the ball!
ps. I something for you on my bloggy: http://wp.me/p2h87n-GE
haha thanks I grabbed your wonderful rose ;o)
Don’t forget to save a dance for me…maybe they would play “rolling on the river” ;o)
I love beans, the long green ones 🙂 I’m gonna throw some of the uffer ones, in the air, for the sheer hell of it..BOL We might get a bean tree growing under our sofa, cos she never cleans under there.Baaawwaahhaaaa 🙂 xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
that would be great! a bean tree under the sofa! …then you have literally a bean bag instead of a sofa – not bad ;o)
MOL MOL MOL MOL EASY!!!
Oh this is too funny. It made mom remember something my Grandpa used to say when he ate beans.
“Beans, Beans the beautiful fruit
the more you eat the more you Poot”!!
Thanks for the belly laugh this morning
Hugs madi your BFFF
Your Grandpa is a wise man, Madi. Beans are really magic things ;o) They can transform me into a carnivore machine gun :o)
Mum was going to have baked beans on toast for lunch, but now changed her mind LOL
….hmmm to throw baked beans in the air could make a mess – but on the other hand you can wiping up the beans with the toast ;o)
Oh my parents love beans…..which makes for a noisy night in their bedroom afterwards but I think that’s THEIR problem since I don’t sleep with them anyway! Hope your trip to Goose’s and to the Ball was uneventful on that magic carpet of yours….see you there my friend!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
I have some icicles on my ears – but I think Goose has a hairdryer for me ;o) Beans are great – but they can be dangerous too: if the Pawlice will pass by they could think there is a gun battle in your crib and they could storm it ;o) … better to use a muffler if you had beans…
Muffler is a good idea…..I’ll put TWO of them up in my parents’ room for their next BEAN-O-RAMA!!!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
I’ve been eating more beans on my cleanse… I’ve always been a fan even as a child!
Beans are great! Thats the only one vegetable with “sound-effect” ;o)
Easy you are a lady’s man for sure. I hope to take what you can’t handle (at the dance).Then maybe I will have some names to write on the beans. toot toot.
I think then we need more than 18 beans … maybe 180?…oh and we need cinderella or her pigeons to pick it up ;o) Have you prepared your car for the ball?
Woof! Woof! What BEANS??? Oh yes shoes are girls best friend … best remedy for any situation. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
Ha I guessed it Sugar as I read your post and saw you in your boots ;o)
You’re definitely a genius and a LADY’s MAN, Easy!
Thanks Eva …I write your name on a bean too hehe ;o)
Wow magic beans. I need some of those. See you at the ball. Hope your ouchie paw is better Easy. Have a marvelous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
Sadly it isn’t Molly – they try to drag me at the vet on THURSDAY… imagine a vet appointment on Valentine’s day … that’s typical for snow whites stepmother and Ebenezer Scrooge… but I’m ready for the ball – no ifs no buts:o)
What do you think, Easy, what would happen if I wrote the same name on the 18 beans?
…good point… I think I have to ask my lawyer if this could be a case of looming bigamy or not ;o)
Ann did a good job on your picture, how true it is! And never thought I’d read the word beans so muchin my life! XD
Thanks – I think that’s really ME ;o) Beans are great – they are like a jack of all trades ;o)
Oh gosh, at first I thought you were going to tell me to put them up my nose but then I read further and learned about the Love Test. My heart is still broken from my break up with Charlotte so I am not ready to try the bean thing, but I cant’ wait to hear how you and Goose do at the Valentines day dance. Couple of Dudes on the prowell.
O Bert, you know what? Someone (a person who shall be nameless) did it. And this person spent an uncomfy time on a treatment chair with an angry doctor. The bean was removed and they went home…there this person did it again!!! Same notstril but another bean! I’m sorry about your broken heart – but maybe you can spent the time with me and Goose on the ball – there is nothing better than funny buddies if you are crossed in love ;o)
I’ve never heard of so many other uses for beans beside making music on the chair seat after ones eaten a bean burrito from Taco Bell (ahem…yesterday for me lol). The story of Jack and the Bean Stalk came to mind thinking of magic beans but the giant wasn’t quite so loving to Jack was he? My birthday is the day before your vet appt Easy…I’ll make a positive wish for you to have a positive experience!
Oh you have the lucky number 13? That’s great! Thanks for making a wish for me, hope things will fall into place.
Maybe Jack ate too much of the beans while climbing and the giant disliked the after- and side effects of the beans?
HAHA Never thought that might be the underlying reason the giant got so mad at Jack!!!! Yes 13 figures positively at our house – hubbies bday is also on the 13th of the month!
13 is always great – I love it.
LOL – I’m thinking the new story line we’ve come up with for Jack and The Bean Stalk would be hilarious Easy! I love potty humor.
I’m not into dried beans, but frozen or fresh (never canned) green beans. I tried your dried bean thing. 18 beans in the air but I could only find 17 that fell to the ground. The missing one had my name on it. What does that portend?
haha no worries Kyla I tried the bean thingy too and I found 19 – and one wore your name ;o) Maybe because our planet is round – or elliptic and the bean slipped directly to me? It doesn’t bear contemplating what would happen if the earth would be a disc ;o)
I always thought we lived on a frisbee.
Paw injury nor beans can stop you! Looking sharp in that Lady’s Man photo.
Thanks – I hope the beans have healing forces too – I don’t like this vet thingys – except he has guests like rabbits ;o)
I love black beans. They don’t make me fart.
Really? So you have no food with sound effect…maybe some one pressed the mute button of the beans?
lol There was a scene in Dexter that I was watching this week that said, “Don’t give him fruit rollups. They make him fart.”
Momz did tossed the magic beans today fur her and me and of course we landed side by side…i could have told here that <3Momz<3 You are a ladie's man and you and
Goose together will make some stiff competition for all us guys with gurldawgfurriends…If you would, please to keep paws off my sweet Misaki…She's stolen my heart
How great! I agree, Gizmo – Misaki is a wonderful girl – and she has a driver licence ;o)
I love chili and just like Becca, beans had no effect on me, not does broccoli, but green pepper makes me burp like a sailor.
I’ll keep shopping till I run out of money, which will be tomorrow.
That’s interesting – maybe you can enter a “silent” bean eating contest ;o) green pepper is a clingy thingy it comes back again&again… but you could try to burp a song ;o)
We have witches in Romania that read the future in maize kernels. Since 2011 it is even legal, the witches can issue invoices to their clients for this:))
Sounds great – I think we need witches, they always knows best ;o)
And if they can issue invoice and they pay their taxes, is even better:)
hahaha – we met a witch in timisoara – she was a very nice person (but we got no invoice ) ;o)
But she was nice. Wow! They are usually scamers. You were very very lucky!!! Where you from? 🙂
…Brittany/France ;o) I know it was only a show for tourists – but it was worth it ;o)
Hee hee I love the idea of the beans! Guess what I’m doing tonight!!!
…you let the beans fly? I’m curious about the result ;o)
Just think how much energy is being wasted – we should harness this gas!
Imagine how much money we could save if we could use the gas for cars….but maybe we have to drive with gas masks or pegs on the nose ;o)
Oh Easy whee have missed you and your hoomans soo much. Whee can always rely on you to cheer us up. Whee are officially back now and Mummy is on the mend.
Have a great day.
Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil
I’m glad you are back – what’s bloggyville without the piggies?
I never am allowed to have beans…wonder why?
I think your sisters would wear pegs on their noses ;o)
