Friday Morning Cup of Links  
Good blog writing material has either been scarce or else I've forgotten it by the time I get to the keyboard (more likely), and what with one thing and another happening in TVland that make me want to find a bridge and jump off to end my suffering (*cough* Bones and Castle, I'm looking at you) I thought I'd show you guys some things on the web that I've found cool/mildly amusing/so hysterical I almost peed my pants.

This Wiki teaches you how to make bath bombs. I'm not sure I'm going to go to that much trouble when Lush sends them right to my door, but it's nice to think about.

This made me giggle. Only because every time I leave the house, I see a girl (or worse yet, a woman) who needs one.

Dante's Internet. I'm just dorky enough to understand it. And I'm not telling you which level I fall under. Unless you ask.

I love the Shake Shack, which is a burger joint in Manhattan. If you live within a day's drive, you seriously need to go. You'll thank me, because it's SOOOOOOOOOO good. (Jennifer W? This summer? GO.) I even stalked them enough to find out how to do it at home, with FAB results. But I read yesterday where they're coming out with a peanut butter bacon burger. Peanut butter? Good. Bacon? Good. Burger? Good. Together? I'm not ashamed to say that I'd try it. These folks are geniuses when it comes to burger science.

This is for Mom and all you flower lovers out there. Freaking amazing.

The place where I graduated from high school got blown up. (On purpose. No worries, it was kind of a hole.) But there's video.

These cookies are something I need to try for home group next time.

And lastly, the romantic comedy of the summer that I'm actually looking forward to. I laughed several times at the trailer. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, who is funny just standing there, and Christina Applegate is in the supporting cast. I like her a lot. :)
Go here for a review/link. I couldn't make it embed. Go figure.

Have a great weekend, y'all. Big love from Tejas.

those are some good links. i think Aislynn would really love to make the bath bombs (even though, yes, we have like 30 or so sitting on a shelf from Lush right now) and give them away as gifts.

peanut butter bacon burger? it sounds gross, but for some reason i think i'd like it. it reminds me of a restaurant here where i like to order their california green chile burger with a peanut butter milk shake.... yum. food.

and the shield! geez. i saw them on another website a while back. do you think anyone actually wears one?

I've always wanted to try making soap. Maybe I'll do that one day.

My mom used to make peanut butter and bacon sandwiches and THOSE were good. I can't see how a burger would make it worse. :)

I hope not. Oh, Lord, I hope not.

The butt crack shield thing totally horrified me. I can see that thing sweeping trailer parks across the nation.
Carrie Leigh: ha ha tee heecarrie_leigh on May 21st, 2010 08:50 pm (UTC)
I hope it's not real. Given that it was on the Comedy Central site, I'm guessing not.

But yeah, there are probably girls out there that would buy it.

HA! Butt crack covers for the win! :D
NOT. Pull up your pants, people. Or get a pair that fits!
Hilarious. xD

There's a place called Fat Burgers in Los Angeles. They will put ANY and EVERYthing on a burger. I was amazed. :O

Ohmygoodness. Now I would eat those cookies, Carrie. You gonna make some? *g*

Carrie Leigh: Zach Gilfordcarrie_leigh on May 21st, 2010 08:49 pm (UTC)
I concur. Get a belt. or go up a size.

I might just make some.

That is one VERY sweet icon.

Innit?! hehehe! Him and his puppy doggies. ♥ You just know that Pansy is adoring him right at that moment. *g*

Okay, I am feeling positively pampered! My package just got here, and I love it all! Thank you so much! And the scent is fantastic! It's subtle but still smells good.

And the Twizzlers made me LOL. :D

Thank you! Merci! Danke!

Aren't you the one on my f-list that likes Twizzlers?

I'm glad you liked the package. :)

Oooh, I really want to see that movie now. It actually looks like a decent and hilarious romcom :D
