See if you can follow…

I reach for a pot lid… it falls and knocks my glasses off my face and cuts my eye lid, then bounces off my face and knocks over the flowers A got me for valentines, causing the vase to go smash all over the floor.

Already sick as a dog with the crud, now with a cut over my eye and my eye swollen, and having to pick glass off the floor. Can I have a do-over?

Is a funny thing… got back from lunch and within 30 minutes could feel it crashing. Not like I didnt eat a good lunch.

Oh, well, an excuse for chocoloate & peanut butter. Like I really need an excuse….

No, not as in hockey…

Adam baked a cake yesterday. From scratch. Two layers of chocolate cake spritzed down with Cointreau then a layter of home made chocolate icing, and then completely frosted with more of the home made chocolate icing. It was yummy! Just ask [ljuser]spyderbug[/ljuser] and [ljuser]syaldia[/ljuser].

One problem. He made too much frosting. Way too much frosting. So, if you are planning to back anything some time soon and need some frosting, please let us know. We will be more then happy to give you some. Or your friends and neighbors. Please?

[Ed. Note ~ Ported from my old Diaryland blog on 23 May 2006]

I went for a haircut last night, among other errands. While I was there I picked up some new conditioner. It is by the same company that makes the hairspray I like, so I figured I would try it.

This morning, I am in the shower, and after I rinse the shampoo out of my hair I read the directions: “Massage a small amount into scalp and let sit for two to five minutes. Rinse.”

Well, I get it massaged in and begin to soap the rest of me. I am about halfway covered in soap when I realize that my scalp is tingling. I get about a third of the way into soaping myself and it becomes a desperate race to rinse all of the conditioner out. When it is finally out, the tingleing does not stop.

Squinting at the bottle (my glasses are sitting by the sink…) I read the ingredients. The crap has menthol in it! It took two hours for my head to stop tingling. What a wake up call.

Now, this is not my first bad experience with mentholated products. Oversharing alert here. When I was just barely a teenager, I went looking through the medicine chest looking for something to help, well, lubricate. The ben gay looked awfully like vaseline. Similar color, consitency, and container. And it goes on slippery. Its a mistake you make only once.

Thanks for the compliemnts on the new layout. I really like this one and I think I may be done futzing for a short while.

In response to the He-Brew beer idea, well it’s been done – check out Schmaltz Brewing. Ah the Chosen Beer. Interesting label too.

Has anyone heard of ‘downloader-w’? Apparently the virus and security web sites have not…
