take a bite out of a tomato

My wife and I had tacos for dinner. While I was cleaning up, I took a quarter piece of one of the tomatoes (not sure what kind of tomato i was) and popped it in my mouth. It was a taste explosion. I suggest you try it with a nice, ripe tomato some time soon.

guinness bottle opener hat

guinness bottle opener hat

I’m not a beer drinker. I’ll have one if I’m at a BBQ with friends, out with co-workers or when I’m in the rare mood to have one at a restaurant. The only beer I enjoy drinking is Guinness, so I guess that’s part of the reason why I like this hat. And it’s a […]

backblogging

Yes, I’ve fallen victim to backblogging quite a bit in the past few months. Rest assured I have new posts scheduled for at least the remainder of the week and even going into next week. So if you’re a faithful follower, you can look forward to new posts popping up on time each weekday.

the perfect Christmas gift

the perfect Christmas gift

How does 4,000 gummi bears sound? 30 pounds of Christmas joy waiting to be shared. Only $95.63. gulp. I wonder what a pile of 4,000 gummi bears looks like. This idea was inspired from core77’s link to 2,340 lollipops for 54 bucks.
