Random technologies to be grateful for

I blogged this for my class blog and figured I might as well use it to take up space here, too! (I am so lazy.)

1. The fly ribbon. I have an insect situation in my kitchen sink area, and the $1.99 sticky strip from Walgreen's is collecting a satisfying amount of fly corpses.

2. Muffin tins. I was able to loan them to some friends who are making cupcakes because I believe a home is not a home unless you've got cookie sheets, pie tins, cake pans, muffin tins, bread pans, and cooling racks, at the very least. Who thought of making the pans have little cup shapes in them for tiny cakes and breads? Genius! It's so interesting how baking is so easy and produces such delicious results, and yet so many people never do it. My mom is a fabulous baker and all of us in the family can make a mean batch of cookies. Although, in the cases of my sister and me, those abilities may have been augmented by spending a disproportionate amount of time baking things for Mormon young women's activities.Perhaps one day I will bake for the class to demonstrate my superior skills. I will be very vigilant in keeping the flies out of the batter or dough.

3. TV on DVD. Best. Idea. Ever. Some people say, "I never see you out," and I reply, "That is because my boyfriend and I buy big handles of booze and drink at home while marathoning any number of TV shows on DVD. It is awesome and does not require us to leave my house."

  1. I bought my Breitling
    about 7 years ago and wear it nearly everyday. Despite wearing it nearly every day, having gone diving with it, kiteboarded with it, and trekked across Australia, Scandinavia and the Far East, it looks as good today as the day I bought it.
    In all honesty I'd never heard of Breitling Windrider
    until I went into a store to buy a Tag Heuer - everyone I knew seemed to be wearing a Tag and it seemed like the ideal watch that could be worn both formally and for sport. Anyhow, while I was in the department store looking at the Tag collections, the assistant said, that if I liked Tag, I might also be interested in Bentley 6.75
    Well, it was love at first sight. I know not everyone is going to like Bentley Motors
