If it fit through the door, I’ll put it in the fryer

I am so lazy. But this is so funny. And it’s food related…which is kind of gross if you think about it too much.

Cheers.

Stupid Marketers…

Holy moly, this was too good to pass up.  It has nothing to do with baking but it is very funny.  When not wielding a pastry cutter and sporting a stunning black outfit, I work in marketing.  It would be fun if jumping around my kitchen making treats paid the bills, but it doesn’t, so when I’m not doing that, I help other people sell stuff.  Which is also fun, just in a different way.

I don’t need a job, I own GM!

Welcome to the wonderful world of business ownership!

Paula Poundstone also has some choice words about this new venture we’ve all taken on. On Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me. (Click on “Listen Now” – Paula’s hilarity starts at about 5:30).

Cheers.

Apropos of nothing but still really cool

I am a fairly recent fan of youtube. For quite a while, I didn’t much see the point of wading through other peoples random video postings. Lately, though, I’ve begun to appreciate it more and more for the amazing resource it is.

First day of summer…

And yet again, nothing…

Posting once a day is haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard.

Cheers.

Absolutely nothing

There is nothing to this post. I promised two yesterday, only delivered one (and a repost at that). In the interest of not totally laming out on my own project, I’m posting a couple of lines. That’s all I got today.

Hopefully more tomorrow.

Cheers.

So I blew it yesterday. Blame it on the husband coming home. He’s distractingly handsome. At any rate, June 1st and now June 10th are two FAIL days in my experiment. But we’ll soldier on.

To make it up, I’m going to post twice today and in the first post, I’m sharing a funny video that you have probably already seen. This gives you another chance/excuse to watch it. See how thoughtful I am?

The great Irving Penn salad still life experiment (part one…)

Irving Penn was a photographer who shot during most of last century. He created the style that is now ever-present in Vogue and Vanity Fair, the Clinique ads that everyone knows, and has been emulated by I’m sure countless photographers.

I have photographic aspirations. Not huge ones. Just making photos that are a little better than average. Maybe even a good one or two. The problem with those kinds of aspirations, or any aspirations I suppose, is that you start learning things. And once you start learning things, you start thinking that you’re doing it WRONG.

Worms eat my credit card statements

The title of the post is an affectionate poke at the seminal worm wrangling book by Mary Applehof, Worms Eat My Garbage. While I am being goofy, it is true that I am an avid worm composter, and one of the things you put into your worm bin is paper “bedding,” which can be made out of a number of different materials, including wet paper. If ever you were worried about your credit card statements being stolen from the recycling and used for ill, consider setting up one of these babies – nothing like having to dig through worm poop to make potential identity thieves think twice!
