"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Random Shit and a few questions...

I heard the BEST quote from a most unlikely source. Vic and I were watching Web Soup on G4tv and, after watching someone commit an epic fail (preserved forever on the net), the host said, "Warning, ideas in your brain may seem more awesome than they actually appear." LOVE IT!

Speaking of hearing, my hearing is back to normal. I was right and I had an ear infection. I tried to let my body fight it off by itself (wanted to minimize antibiotics usage if I could) but that didn't work. 2 days of good old amoxicillin has done the trick though.

Joey's African Dwarf Frog has a name. Joey is the proud owner of a frog named Bacon. My sis Jen said he needs another frog to keep Bacon company and we should name it Eggs.

Under my D is for Dragons post, Barb asked if I had ever been to Dragon Con. Sadly, I have been deprived of that joy to this date. Not only would a trip to Dragon Con feed my love of dragons but it appeals to my geeky side. Also, Barb asked if I had read Dealing With Dragons. That's another no Barb.  Is it a good book? Do you recommend it?

I made peanut butter and banana cookies today. I loved the flavor but I'm not happy with the texture yet. They are too cakey. Guess I'll play with the recipe soon. All I have to do is hide a bunch of bananas from my kids long enough for them to become overripe.

I also made some delish Cheddar Onion bread to go with our spaghetti and meatballs tonight. I've used the basic bread recipe before and it didn't rise enough that time. I had to double the yeast but it turned out perfectly.

I know not all of you enter to win the Eden Fantasy gift cards when I post them. For those of you who do, when I decide to keep the gift cards, would you be interested in an "adult" crochet item as a prize instead (think the sperm items, a mini boob key chain, the crocheted condom)?

What are you interested in me posting about? Do y'all want geeky type stuff like how to embed links and bold face things in your comments? Do you want crafty stuff? Got questions you want answered? Anything?

Sorry about the ear infection, hon. Glad it's feeling better Amazing what that pink stuff can do. Although I guess for an adult it's neither pink nor liquid. ;)

I love the African frogs name! An a buddy named Eggs would be awesome. LOL! We used to have two bearded dragons named Wilma and Betty. :)

Oooh, it just occured to me...you said you could never own a dragon...but you could get one of these "little" guys and have yourself your very own dragon. :)

Eggs and Bacon, I'm still giggling and slightly hungry lol, and I think one of the adult crochet items would make a great prize!

I think you don't need any recommendations on posts because you always have some unique stuff to talk about. Bacon?? hahahaha~ LOVE IT!!

Barb said...

You need to go!!! :)

It's good Kristin. An easy young adult read that is very fun. It's a series. Go get em! :)

Kira said...

First of all: you have NEVER read "Dealing with Dragons"???? Go get your butt a copy STAT!

I like the geeky stuff, I like the crafty stuff, 'sall good.

You mentioned on one of my posts about wanting a breast reduction when you are done building your family... So I was curious what you were thinking as far as how many/when you would add to your family? Everyone has such different opinions on how many kids/how far apart but I was curious what your stance was?

Marisa said...

That is a hilarious quote and I swear every idea I have sounds so much more awesome in my head than in real life :-)
