I Have A Problem

I'm a blogaholic. Seriously.
I started new blog. Unlike this blog the new one, Adorabugs, has a direction. Check out and for the love of all things cute, COMMENT. I know you're reading.. I see your little stats. No more lurking! Become an enabler in my vice. Tell me what you think. Give me something to think about. What do you like/hate/not care about...
Have a great weekend sneaky readers!

Senseo Update

About an hour after I posted the blog lamenting the late arrival of my Senseo Coffee Machine, it magically appeared outside my garage door. It's taken a few tries to figure out how to get the coffee to the perfect strength but I've got my system now and I LOVE it.
I got this

Holly and Simon got this

What is wrong with me? I have become obsessed with all things LOL. I can't find any lolbugs on the internetz so I'm forced to make my own. I will occasionally post them when I feel inspired.
I took this photo yesterday from inside my home. The walking stick was hangin' out on my glass stormdoor apparently thinking no one could see him.

And the winner is....

Congrats to the winner! She and the judge will be receiving something Faeriemade as soon as I get it ordered and shipped which should be sometime in the next week or so!

LolCat Contest expands to include real prize!

In an unexpected turn of events Cozytailmom allows a friend to choose the winner of the LolCat contest.
Angela Adams will be deciding the winner of the LolCat contest early Monday (09/24/07) morning or whenever she drags her rear out of bed and into work.
The winner will receive a small but fun prize selected by Cozytailmom.*
"This is my fifth internet based contest in which a prize has been awarded. I'm especially excited about this contest because I actually have contestants. My previous contestant mostly won by default," said Cozytailmom.
Cozytailmom's previous contests included; ‘Identify the Random Cartoon Clip,’ ‘Sexiest One Armed Photo,’ ‘Slide Show Identification,’ and a ‘SudsForVenus Quiz.’ All of these contests were quite dull.
"I've come to the conclusion that kitty's will bring in the people." Cozytail continues "Marlowe's hilarious pose is one of the best things that happened to my secret internet identity."
Cozytailmom encourages everyone to enter the contest. See previous post for the Marlowe pic and add your entry as a comment to that post.
Good Luck!
*Prize will not be anatomically correct soap.

LOLCat Contest

My friend sent me this picture of her cat(Marlowe) which I immediately decided needed a lolcat caption.

The best I could come up with was "i iz an actor, wherz my acatemy award." It's kinda lame. I need some help from readers! The winning phrase will be added to the pic and posted here, which is not much of an award but is all I have to offer.

I'm always waiting for something

This time...
I'm awaiting my free ($15 for shipping) Senseo coffee pod thingy.
Aside from waiting for my children to pop out I have never been so impatient for something to arrive.
It was shipped from Nashville on Thursday so ordinarily I would not be surprised that it's Wed of the following week and I still haven't received it. However, according to DHL shipment tracking I know that it arrived in my city Friday night. It's been within my grasp since Friday night!!!!!
I have been attracted to the single serve coffee pod machines for some time but it wasn't until I ordered the free ($15) Senseo machine that I wanted one really, really, really, bad. I'm talkin' really bad. It has changed my whole outlook on coffee making. This morning all things related to coffee making peeved me for the first time in my life. The filter cleaning, the decanter filling, the bean grinding; all annoying! WHERE IS MY MACHINE?!?!?!?
I can't even think straight, write legibly or spell as I am all consumed with the whereabouts of my coffee pod machine. Boohooooooo

I strongly suspect an unprincipled neighbor is happily sipping away at a pod filtered cup of coffee brewed from a truly free Senseo machine.

Late Summer Tropical Treat

Whenever I have random overripe fruit laying around the house I make a smoothie. Truly, it's the only way I really consume fruit. I'm just not that into it...
Anyway. Sometimes the fruit combo is fantastic and sometimes it's just so-so.
Today, I might have made the best one yet so I thought I would share the recipe with everyone who loyally reads my blog (and doesn't comment) and for anyone who stumbles upon it.

2 overripe kiwis
2 overripe bananas
1 8oz el cheapo Light Coconut Creme yogurt
1 splash of Orange Juice (about 1/3 cup)
6-8 ice cubes

Toss all ingredients in the blender and chop/blend/liquefy. Serves 3

Overripe fruit is really the best because it is sooo flavorful. You can really taste all the flavors of the individual fruits when you use pieces that are just about to go bad. Also, you would probably just throw the food out at this point anyway.

Do NOT put rum in the smoothies. You will be tempted to try this especially with the above recipe. The rum causes the yogurt to curdle. Ask me how I know this...

And for the fun of it, here's a video I made about smoothies. I may have already posted this. Can't remember..
