Where are the Toasters?

Ikea makes a Battle Star Galactica joke? No frackin' doubt.

Whole Paycheck

Sara went to Whole Foods to pick up a little treat for us to eat while vegging out to TV one night. I gave her full power of purchase, which is always dangerous. She came back very proud of herself, saying,"Ever since I had seen these brownies I wanted to try them. I mean, what do $13 brownies taste like?" (This is not a direct quote, merely something I made up, but it does capture the gist.)

She made the brownies. On the first night we ate them, and I have to say that they tasted like $7 brownies, max. BUT, it says very clearly on the box that best results are attained when you cook them and let them sit overnight before eating them. Who does that? I guess people who make $13 brownies as a normal daily activity.

Anyway, we exercized maximum restraint and did not eat the whole batch in one go. Good work! The next day, I gave the $13 brownies a second taste test. My god, they did taste like they were worth $13! Moist, smooth, with chunks of dark chocolate bliss.

Sara still claims that they are at most $11 brownies, but I felt we got our money's worth, if only in entertainment value.

Tiki to the Nth Degree

Junior and I went to Trader Vic's in Emeryville over the weekend. This is the classic tiki bar/restaurant, so we had to have the big rum drink. Deeeeliteful.

Look at what a great parent I am!

Thanks Eas' Bunny...

Bock! Bock!

Creepy Dollies

I took a CPR class a while back (I'm certified by the Redd Cross to save your sad ass!) and we used these dummies to practice breathing and pumping the chest. They look pretty freaky.
