It’s been a “junk food” weekend. I ate too much and we still have too much snack food in the house though it is disappearing fast. I made these except I used Rice Krispies instead of Special K. They’re very messy to make (or at least I made an awful mess) but they’re fantastic. You have to refrigerate these after you cut them so the topping won’t be too soft. I think next time I might try not adding peanut butter to the chocolate. We used to make something like these years ago and I don’t remember mixing peanut butter in the chocolate.
For the last two nights we have turned off the air conditioner and slept with the windows open and I slept better than I have all summer. Being able to open the windows is one of my favorite things about this time of year. I’m not such a back-to-nature nut that I would give up air conditioning entirely but natural air just feels better somehow. And I like to hear the crickets and frogs at night. It’s a much softer sound this time of year than in the summer. On summer nights the sound in our back yard is actually loud. I like that too and often think I don’t spend enough time outside in the evenings in summer.
I love this t-shirt. It makes me wish I was a scientist but at the same time glad I’m not. I’d probably get stuck in the procrastination stage. I might make it as far as depression.
2leep* is a great site which will likely insure that you don’t get to sleep for a long long time. It has lots of links to photo lists like 12 Most Creative Sofas. If I wanted a modern designed living room I would go for the pixel sofa. I love it because it’s colorful. The others are all just too weird for me. These photorealistic paintings are unbelievable! I will definitely check out all of the artists’ sites. Of course I had to take a look at The 15 Most Painful Shoes Ever Created. Not only painful but frickin’ weird! Numbers 5, 8 and 9 don’t look like they would actually be all that painful, aside from the pain of embarrassment. There’s a lot more. Take plenty of food; you’re going to be there for a while.
Drive-by Blogging has lots of interesting and worthwhile stuff – photos, links, quotes, videos, lists, etc.
My Parents Were Awesome is a fun site where people submit photos of their parents back when they were young and… um…. “fashionable”. It’s a little disturbing to see how dated 70′s photos look today. That wasn’t that long ago was it?
Defiant gardens “are gardens created in extreme or difficult environmental, social, political, economic, or cultural conditions. These gardens represent adaptation to challenging circumstances, but they can also be viewed from other dimensions as sites of assertion and affirmation.”
MusicMaster Oldies – Rare records, history, images and sounds.
Update: *Doh! I could have sworn there was an actual “S” in 2leep the first time I looked at it. Having to correct it sort of spoils my little joke.
