I just cut a pineapple into spears and they are on a cookie sheet individually freezing. Once firmly frozen, they'll got into a zip-lock bag, ready at a moment's notice to proudly hold an umbrella in my Koolaid or whatever I happen to be drinking.

When I was a kid and my parents would take us out to dinner with them on occasion, my favorite part was always getting the little plastic sword and, rarely, the paper parasol from their drinks. My dad and I would always have little sword fights at the table. Both of my parents are gone now, but you can bet there will be parasols and plastic swords in my drinks, tiki or not.

Yeah, plastic swords are great fun -- until somebody puts an eye out!

...I've run out of both types of lanterns. Anyone know where I can buy more, now that Oriental Trading quit carrying them?
