Frosty - The Most Popular Snowman in Our House

Bakerella strikes again.  OMG, the overwhelming cuteness.  Better hide this from the boy or I'll be in the kitchen all night ;-)  Frosty the Snowman by Bakerella

Zhu Zhu for you?

Who's hiding these things?  What makes every kid want one? Where are the weary parents going to find them? When will these be in the stores?  Why? Why?

According to an article today in the NY Times the Zhu Zhu Pets are the season's hottest toy?  Really?  I'm glad to see that the Times is right up to speed with that.  I have never, ever seen one of the rodents on  a store shelf.  I can tell you this, they advertise the beans out of them on TV.  My kid has been asking for one since the Summer.  I'm tired of the ads playing for something that "real" parents can't get.  Unless your willing to buy it from a fleabay seller for a 500% markup.

I really think that parents are going crazy for these, since they don't want yet one other thing to feed, wash and change.  How many other Mom's were immediately asked for a hamster after their darlings saw G-Force this summer?

At this rate, I think the pet stores are going to be selling a boat load of live hamsters this year.  Me?  Um, no.  I'll take the one with the on/off switch.  ;)

Make Bisquick Biscuits - wikiHow

Make Bisquick Biscuits - wikiHow

Made these this morning, cutting in the butter with a pastry blender is key. A little messy on a humid morning, but well worth the oven being on. Yummy!

You can't make this stuff up!!!

From the truth is stranger than fiction file. This has all the key elements:
  • nudity
  • inmates
  • car crashes
  • mental patient
  • a curious plot

I hope the poor woman recovers. I want to know who put her in the cab to begin with.
