Can You Guess?

Christian and his camera have been out and about getting verrrrryyy up close and personal with some common household objects. Can you guess what each picture is? The person to guess all three correctly gets a . . . gets a . . . , well, gets something yummy! (I'll figure that part out later.) Come on--give it a go . . . Be sure to check back to see "the big reveal!"

Cast Your Vote!

Cast your vote for your favorite sugar enhanced creation! The head of The American Institute of Architects will be making the final decision as soon as he can pry open his jaw after snitching a couple of the uber-sticky gumdrops from one unlucky contestant's structure. (That will teach him not to go around stealing building supplies from unsuspecting contractors!)

Janie's Got a Gun . . . (Aerosmith)

ATTENTION all of you power-hungry yet musical women: A new product is on the market! Now women (well, men too, but the product is definitely made to appeal to chicks), can shoot their attacker with a "pretty-in-pink" taser while keeping the beat to their favorite song! Yes indeedy, I can get my stylish taser in a designer holster which comes complete with an MP3 player (of all things) so I can ZAP ZAP ZAP as I sway to "Happiness is a Warm Gun," by the Beatles or tap my toe to Eric Clapton's "I Shot the Sheriff." The possibilities are endless when one is looking for suitable musical accompaniment to their shoot 'em up romp: "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" (Pat Benetar); "Saturday Night Special" (Lynyrd Skynyrd); "Guns, Guns, Guns" (Guess Who). A perfect pairing, that taser and MP3 player. Just like swimming naked in the Arctic Ocean.

I'll Take the Meisterstuck, Please

In the realm of writing instruments, the choices are far and wide: One could go for the exquisite touch of a Montblanc piston fountain pen with 18 K gold nib and platinum inlay set with 4654 diamonds, or, at the other end of the spectrum, one could use a charred piece of kindling from their community cooking fire at the Paradise Acres Mobile Home Park. Maybe just pound your foot on the ground to count out how far down the alphabet to go to spell out your word. I don't really care. Just don't resort to this. It takes too darn long to spell out those really long words like, "thesepeopleareidiots."

Emeril Has Nothin' On These Guys!

So Sean received a very spiffy pasta maker from Williams Sonoma courtesy of Santa C. this Christmas.

He set to work making five-star linguini and angel hair while Ashley and Jordan whipped up some stellar marinara, pesto and alfredo sauces. Mmmmm good! (What am I doing
wearing the apron around here?)

These guys are going to give Alton and Giada and Paula a run for their money! My very sincere compliments to the chefs!

See Ya at 90!

I happened across a website featuring a longevity calculator while reading this article from the Salt Lake Tribune, and thought to myself, "Do I dare take the test to find out my life longevity, a silly test which may reveal that I'll be kicking the bucket sooner than my personal agenda prescribes?" I went for it anyway and came up with a respectable 90 years old! Go granny go! Take the test here and let me know your scores. (The site offers a test for those under 49 and those over 49.) We could be the rulers of the geriatric crowd down at the senior center gumming our way through boiled chicken together!
