Links and baking

arynwy just linked me to the most amazing, productivity increasing product! Be sure to read the reviews!

From Shog and the CollegeHumor crew, have a vid about a sexually confused ninja (if another vid loads, Sexually Confused Ninja is in the sidebar). (NWS)

This toy reminds me of The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer, by Neal Stephenson. Big Niece may be receiving it for Christmas. Little Niece may be receiving this version of it. (I have yet to decide upon Biggest Niece's gift. *frets*)

I went to see my brother's new place yesterday and visit with him, SiL, and the girls. Big Niece insisted that I return to tuck her in later that evening, which Shog and I did (Big Niece is getting over her fear about "Uncle Beard," which is good). During our visit, one of the heaters (which was covered in dust) got turned on. It was alarming to smell what we thought was a fire in the new (albeit old) house, but that got sorted quickly. Big Niece was a bit troubled by the notion of fire, but when I looked in on Little Niece, she was bouncing about her crib completely unconcerned. I picked her up for a hug (bad Aunt Iuls! I'm not supposed to be picking up anything over 12 pounds); she was too adorable!

In other news, because I just cannot give up bread, I'm trying some low-carbohydrate recipes for it this week. One is for a pumpkin bread. *dances; hopes* I'll let you know how that goes.

Also? Grilled artichokes are the best. Veggies. Evah!

Oh, and this resting bullshit is getting on my nerves; I've decided to be well, right now. (I'll let you know how that goes, too.)

P.S. This is what I woke up to, this morning (ugly shoes need washing, apparently):

Regarding the product reviews: the one from the pilot is possibly my favorite. Love that product. Gotta get one. Srsly.

If your low-carb pumpkin bread is a hit, please share the recipe. Hubby collects p-bread recipes and with our diets we could really love a good low-carb version :D

The shoes? At least it seems that Shog washed them himself. Could have become really ugly if you had to wash them for him, no?

I'm not sure that I would have agreed to wash those shoes; Shog doesn't actually like me to wash his laundry, so I imagine that he'd be pissed if I "helped." *pleased*

Whoever thought that desk was a good idea, even given the disclaimer, was not bright.

This is the recipe; I'll let you know how it turns out for me and if I made substitutions. :) *huggles*

OMG, those product reviews almost had me spewing coffee on my keyboard. Wow.

As for those shoes? Better him than you, that's all I have to say on the matter.

OMG! Loved those product reviews. LOL!

Those shoes, you didn't have to wash them did you? Tell me Shog did it.

Oh, and this resting bullshit is getting on my nerves; I've decided to be well, right now. (I'll let you know how that goes, too.)

Hope it goes really well indeed.

This isn't an edited reply to that other comment, I swear. ;)
*huggles*

Shog did his own shoe-washing; I would have been afraid to ruin the *coughs* things.

I'm trying to be good, but I am up and about more. Yay!

Oh yeah it would be a terrible shame if those shoes got ruined. LOL!
