This is cool!
From instructables: How to build an LED Faucet Night Light.
Recipe on the underside of the lid:
“On cocktail skewers, assemble colorful combinations of the following ingredients: pineapple chunks, mandarin slices, assorted melon balls, figs, mixed olives, and grape tomatoes, alternating with slices of cooked or dried ham, salami and other deli meats, also always including well-drained SAPUTO COCKTAIL BOCCONCINI. Arrange the skewers on a platter garnished with gourmet lettuce leaves and springs of fresh herbs. Serve chilled.”
I didn’t even know there were “gourmet lettuce leaves”, or that fresh herbs could spring!

This is kind of cool: the image of the laser beam of an upturned optical mouse as reflected off a white tea mug.
When setting up the tables for tomorrow night, we discovered that the bridge table which was going together with the patio table was about 1″ shorter. First thought was to get a table pad to put on top of the table to equalize the heights… Now add the problem of $$$ or weight and time to find one!
Then, in a flash of “don’t raise the bridge, lower the water!” inspiration, I came up with the PERFECT SOLUTION: put something UNDER the bridge table to make it higher!
Underneath the duct tape is a wooden block with a 1″ diameter hole drilled about 1/4″. That makes the proper height adjustment and keeps the leg from slipping out of place. The blocks are then duct taped to the legs to keep them on place and to protect the floor.
Pure GENIUS if I do say so myself!!
This is the ingredients of our typical breakfast smoothie: mixed berries (carbs), protein powder (protein), flax oil (fat), and water. You will see I’ve got a couple of ice cubes, too, and the fruit is frozen; this helps to make it thicker.
What I learned on my diet plan is that the key is to have the proper balance between carbs (40%), protein (30%), and fat (30%), as well as smaller calorie intake. The typical Canadian diet is too high in carbs, way too high in fat, and too low in protein.
Here’s a thought I had while browsing an old friend’s news feed: at what point does so much time pass and life events happen that you are no longer the same people you were when you last saw each other? At what point do you go from being lovers to being friends to being “someone that I used to know”?
As I was going into the subway in my way home this afternoon I received a staticky phone call from B-R-C, something about leaving her keys in the house and thus being locked outside. Below is a transcribed voice message that I got from her a little while later. I KNOW I should be more sympathetic, but I just can’t help laughing about it!
“Ok i-know-it’s(?) keys are in my bag. I found them(?) … in(?) another bag. I had a really stressful day. I’m sorry to bother you. Just not talk to you later on. bye(?). I just wanna know what time … be home cos I think I wanna go out tonight. I’m really-depressed-bye(?).”
