Best of the Web

1. Rainbow cake- yes, I know people have make rainbow cakes before...but this one is utterly amazing
2. Things you can/can't freeze- I didn't know you could freeze nuts or fresh whipped cream. Interesting

1. I'd love to buy these and put them on all the bloody SUVs around my library but I'm pretty sure council would frown on it. And I kinda like my job....

2. I wonder if I could make this kick ass space saving desk-bed-thing out of stuff from IKEA?

3. A joke for ya:

George W. Bush went into a library and announced in a loud voice "I'd like a cheeseburger and fries please!"

The librarian replied "But sir, this is a library!"

"Gee, I'm sorry" said the President, then whispered "I'd like a cheeseburger and fries please". (a big shout out to Snarky for that one)

three things

The Good: DIY Graham Crackers For those who DON'T live in the US and still want to make smores from time to time (here ya go Helen!!!)

The Bad: 'Grossest. Pet. Story. Ever.' Do not read this while you are eating, really! (thanks Tankie, sort of...)

And the Fugly: Oh Miss Kelly. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks she needs to fire her stylist.

"I suspect it puts the old Overalls and Body Suit [Winner of both the Toughest Bathroom Outfit Award of 1993 AND the Toughest Bathroom Outfit of All Time] to shame...Because it generally seems like you're adorably normal and thus should not be cavorting about in anything that smells of Dominatrix. Okay?"

Those gals at GoFug just kill me sometimes. IMHO this is their best post yet.

Three things...

Tonight we are going over to Kris and The Snook's for a bit of Halloween goodness. So lots of photos will be on the way.

-I have posted some pics from Harts Pub on the Sydney SnB site. (click on the link under the blurb about Harts)

-A link for my Mom (I was telling about this blogger who got a visit from the Feds because she has been writing bad stuff about the Prez. Boy I hope some cuff-talkers don't show up at my door for spreading this link....oh well...)


(note to the Sydney SnBers: the pics from downstairs didn't turn out. I know, I'm really bummed too. I'll get some advice about how to take pics in dimly lit rooms from my photographer hubby. Anyway, I put the best 5 up on the site but if you want the lot just drop me an email and I'll get them out to you. cheers!-gg)

Three things

1. So last night after seeing Fahrenheit 9/11 with Kris and the Snook we stopped into this insane used book store in Newtown (that's a whole 'nuther post!) but while we were hunting through the piles I came across a yearbook from a Normal High School. So here I am, a gal from Central Illinois, living in Sydney looking at a bunch of pics of high school kids from Central Illinois at a book shop in Sydney. ahhh, my brain hurts.

2. Further proof that Prime Minister Helen Clark is a really man. That woman has cojones the size of basketballs! Lordy, she told Israel to take a hike. (just for the record, I like Helen Clark a lot.)

3. File this site under 'duh':


(ok, I had to add this one for Kris. I got this link from my Bro and I liked all the cat sayings, go forth and giggle...)

2. Bees!

3. And I watched the classic film The Great Gatsby last night. (I'm doing a bit of research for a flapper costume, I'll post pics when it's finished) And man, Sam Waterson (aka Jack McCoy) looks like he is about 12! Go figure.

4. Guess what these are:
what the heck are they

Nope, they are limes. Rob got them from a friend who has some citrus trees on his property. I had no idea that many limes are yellow. I guess there will be lots of lime n Coke at our place.
