Doggone Loyal!

I was messing around on the front porch this morning and when I came inside, I forgot about Yuki. Twenty minutes later I realized he was missing. After a brief search inside the house, I opened the front door and saw this:

Drums and Pinkberry Yogurt

I took Jack to the legendary Pinkberry yogurt last Friday night in our new mall and the sushi place opening up across the square was having a private opening party. The party featured this interesting drum team which Jack and I enjoyed as we wolfed our yogurt.

A Great Frosting

I went to buy us all cupcakes the other day and the cupcake place had just closed. Not to be deterred, I figured I'd make us some cupcakes.   I had a box cake mix but not frosting so...

I went to and started modifying...

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon natural salt
2 cups confectioners' sugar

1. Melt chocolate and the butter together. Let cool and blend in the sour cream, vanilla, and salt. Gradually add the confectioner's sugar until the frosting is of spreading consistency, beat well.

One of the keys is the salt... resist the temptation to use regular salt.  The larger crystals are one of the keys.

Coconut Twix

We saw the new Coconut Twix in a Chicago drugstore and gave it a shot. It's like a regular Twix, but with coconut flavored caramel. It has a decent coconut flavor, but ultimately we felt that the "limited edition" stamp was well placed.

Terlfest 2011 Videos!

Mullins and I each created a Terl movie using iMovie '11. Each vision began with the same stop-motion footage of my new Lego Space Needle, Terl from the Scientology movie Battlefield Earth, and Taruk Makto, the big dragon thing from the movie Avatar.

I saw a working Armatron at a garage sale priced at four dollars. I have fond memories of Armatron from my childhood. It was the coolest robot arm I ever owned. I didn't buy this one, but did take some pics.
