The Pit Of Despair (.com that is)

Oh, I have so much to blog about! And I am so uninterested in making myself vulnerable by blogging about all the things I am thinking about! Emotions are rolling through me and I simply don't have the energy to understand them or explain them.

So, in case you are interested, I will post another web site that I find ridiculously amusing. When I worked at Novell, I literally wasted nearly an entire day laughing at this web site.

Anyway, without further adieu:
Does enjoying these mean I hate the world? Or, perhaps, I simply have a healthy sense of humor and a lively grip on reality. It is really all about perception, isn't it?

Baby Got Back

One of my beautiful friends introduced me to a website that both entertains me and grosses me out. Depending on how steady your stomach is, you may want to drop by and find out exactly why Americans are growing in obesity at some incredible rate. Each food item is more poisonous than the last and in between gagging and laughing, I think "Holy crap, did some one eat that?"
The above is a deep fried moon pie. That is two vanilla cakes with a vanilla creme filling that is then dipped in yummy chocolate glaze. Then, battered and fried and topped with powdered, yum? or maybe ick? I can't decide!
Here we have the "A fifteen inch deep-fried hot dog topped with jalapeƱos, habanero chili sauce, coleslaw, diced tomatoes and a mound of cheese." I have a brother in law who could eat it, but if I look at it too long, I feel a bit sick!

And, for the final installment, you can admire the meatloaf cake. Meatloaf with carrots frosted with mashed potatoes and ketchup. Really, who thought this up?!

But if you would like to see more, feel free to head over to "This Is Why You're Fat" and see more *delicious* concoctions like deep fried Texas Grilled Cheese, Bacon Cinnamon Rolls, or Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks. All I know is that now I really want a salad!

Also, I have read this article a couple of times and every time it fascinates me. It is political and it is about hypocrisy. I LOVE it!,21985,25344492-5000117,00.html

Nothing But Blue Skies

Well, our weather has been erratic. Perhaps schizophrenic. Or, maybe, perhaps there is a power struggle that none of us are aware of between Old Man Winter and Sweet Young Thing Spring.

Monday, we were in short sleeves, walking our exquisitely adorable puppy and climbing trees. Ok, fine, Weston was climbing trees. I was safely on the ground.

Tuesday, it rained, Wednesday it snowed and 
Thursday, well, we are back to blue skies. I somehow feel that Old Man Winter didn't have it in him this year. It was not terribly cold. It was not terribly long. The only thing it truly did was provide a bit of the much needed moisture. 

And now my daffodils are poking their heads up. My crocus are happily blooming and any minute I will see my sweet parrot tulips making an appearance. 
Even the peas in the garden are getting into the swing of things.

In case you couldn't tell, my favorite thing about Spring is not warm weather, late spring snows, or even the lengthening days. No, my most favoritest thing is plants and watching everything come back to life. It seems like a miracle every year.
