You know I did.

I grew a mysterious black mustache last night. Michael grew a Spencer Pratt flesh colored mustache.




I'm pretty sure you can't get much more awesome than this.

Felt mustaches? Yes please.

I love felt for some reason. I have never really made anything out of felt (yet), but it's just fun to have and to look at.

I guarantee you will smile at least 3 times looking at these pictures by Lupin.












I am totally going to make some of these I hope you know...


This makes me want to go make felt-y things...

I think the mustaches are at the top of my list... I'm doing it. Don't worry, there will be pictures of the results.

Michael is going to look wonderful in one of these. It will go nicely with his real mustache...

One year, two cakes.


Yesterday was our 1 year annivesary, so we FINALLY got to eat the top tier of our wedding cake that has been sitting in our freezer since the big day. Michael has been talking about eating this thing since we left our wedding reception I'm pretty sure... and has been getting more and more excited the closer we got.

The cake was looking pretty rough when we unwrapped it from two layers of tin foil and took it out of the ice cream bucket, so I tried to smooth it out as much as I could but it didn't end up helping a whole lot. Not that it mattered anyways, it just bothered me that I looked bad.

I was positive it was going to taste like freezer burn, so I also made us a carrot cake to eat just in case. Because we obviously need to eat at least one entire cake all on our own one way or another... Well we did eat the carrot cake, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the wedding cake was incredibly delicious also. So I'm sure we'll be finishing it off within the next few days.

We're fatties.

Oh, and Michael broke our knife in the cake. We were impatient and didn't wait long enough for it to thaw completely, and the handle snapped off and left the blade sitting nicely in the middle of the cake.

Like so:

Then Michael laughed and I got mad at him for laughing because I really liked that knife. Boo.

We went to see a movie in Ames yesterday called Sunshine Cleaning, and... it was not what I thought it was going to be. It wasn't funny at all like I was expecting. Just sort of weird... and slow.

But then we went to La Fuente and that made up for the crappiness of the movie.

Mmmm... enchiladas...

Here's a lovely shot to end this, of our recently murdered knife in action:
He was such a good knife.

Whaaaaaaat

Any man, in the right situation, is capable of murder. But not any man is capable of being a good camper. So, murder and camping are not as similar as you might think.
-Jack Handy


We are going camping.

Some day.

We want to go camping for our anniversary, but I am thinking it might not work out to go next weekend. But we'll go eventually. Maybe in May.

We bought this Coleman tent at Target yesterday, and I wast just reading the reviews for it and they aren't so good :) Way to go, us. Most of them said that the tent leaks... and the poles are bad. So... that's just great.

Hopefully it will be ok for us though. It's not like we'll be using it real often anyways. Hopefully more than once...

It is currently set up in our living room - minus the rain fly. We barely had enough room to get it up, and we didn't feel like trying to put the rain fly on. Michael was imagining a tent pole going through the TV and decided he would rather not have that happen . It smells like a tent in here...

I've been looking at camping sites. I asked a girl I work with where we should go and she said Acorn Valley. I looked at the virtual tour of the tent sites and it does look pretty fun, so maybe we'll do that. Each little camp site is set back into the trees... I hope it actually looks like that in real life though. It's hard to tell.

Camping is a lot of work. I always over pack, and I'm sure I'll want to bring every little thing we could possibly ever need for one night of camping.

We will probably need a cooler of some sort, which we don't have. We both have sleeping bags, but mine is really crappy and is probably child-size. I don't think I've ever slept in it.

We'll have to go buy food if we're going to grill, which we probably will. And of course we will be making smores, or I'm not going.

Ughh... too much for me to think about right now. Like I said, I don't think we'll be going any time soon. Acorn Valley doesn't open until the end of May anyways, so we have plenty of time to prepare. And knowing us we will probably never end up going anyways, and we'll just go sleep in Kristin and Jeremy's backyard for a night. And most likely be woken up at 6 AM by a three year old girl.

This one, to be exact:

We'll see what happens.

That's all I've got.

Things I Like: Part 1

Jack Handey Quotes:


  • "I'll take that little one, way in the back," I said. "That little collie mix?" said the animal shelter guy. "No," I said, "the one behind him." "The gray terrier?" he said. "He's gray," I said,"but way in the back, in the corner." "You mean the water faucet?" he said. I realized then it was a water faucet, but I didn't want to look like a jerk, so I said,"Yeah, that's the one I want." It ended up costing me almost five hundred dollars to get that faucet removed. But you know, I've still got that faucet, and I wouldn't trade it for any dog in the world.
  • What am I afraid of? I'll tell you: a feather. that's right, a feather. How could anyone be afraid of a feather, you say. That's an honest question, and I'll try to give it an honest answer. First of all, did I say it was a poison feather?
  • I think in one of my previous lives I was a mighty king, because I like people to do what I say.
  • Most people don't realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer.
  • I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
  • Instead of a Seeing Eye dog, what about a gun? It's cheaper than a dog, plus if you walk around shooting all the time people are going to get out of the way. Cars, too!
  • If you define cowardice as running away at the first sign of danger, screaming and tripping and begging for mercy, then yes, Mr. Brave man, I guess I'm a coward.
  • Better not take a dog on the space shuttle, because if he sticks his head out when you're coming home his face might burn up.
  • One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
  • If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."
  • If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins the most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong, though. It's Hambone.
  • If you're a young Mafia gangster out on your first date, I bet it's real embarrassing if someone tries to kill you.
  • If you go parachuting, and your parachute doesn't open, and you friends are all watching you fall, I think a funny gag would be to pretend you were swimming.
  • I think a good gift for the President would be a chocolate revolver. and since he is so busy, you'd probably have to run up to him real quick and give it to him.
  • Sometimes, when I lie in bed at night and look up at the stars, I think to myself, "Man! I really need to fix that roof."
  • If you lived in the Dark Ages and you were a catapult operator, I bet the most common question people would ask is, "Can't you make it shoot farther?" "No, I'm sorry. That's as far as it shoots."
  • Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
  • Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
  • I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.
  • If I ever get real rich, I hope I'm not real mean to poor people, like I am now.
  • Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.
  • If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He like enchiladas, because that's what He's getting!
  • When you're ten years old, and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again.
  • Laurie got offended that I used the word "puke." But to me, that's what her dinner tasted like.
  • One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned- out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said, "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
  • One day one of my little nephews came up to me and asked me if the equator was a real line that went around the Earth, or just an imaginary one. I had to laugh. Laugh and laugh. Because I didn't know, and I thought that maybe by laughing he would forget what he asked me.
  • To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad.
  • Why do the caterpillar and the ant have to be enemies? One eats leaves, and the other eats caterpillars. Oh, I see now.

Hiiiiii


I am home alone watching The King of friggin' Queens.

Michael sent himself to sleep on the couch last night... while he was sleeping. We don't know how he got there.

That makes me laugh harder than it should.
