The Best Camera You Can Have

Remember the old days when cameras consisted primarily of 35mm or 110mm film? Cameras could be purchased as plain cameras or disposables bought with film and a built-in flash. You could buy film in various ISO speeds, usually 200-400. If you wanted something really good, you had to spend a few hundred, if not a few thousand.

A Mysteriously Beautiful Sky

We were driving home one morning, just after dawn break. I was looking around a bit to try to stay awake.

The sky was just clearing up from a huge storm with lots of rain, lightning, and flooding. The clouds had cleared away and, as I was driving, I noticed the sky had an amazing appearance.

The clouds appeared almost 3D, and the sky was multi-colored. I can’t recall ever seeing the sky quite like this before, especially with the way that the clouds sharply contrast the sky. Granted, I haven’t been to anywhere across the ocean where the sky might look incredibly different, and I haven’t seen the Northern Lights.

But, this is the most amazing and beautiful skies I’ve ever come across. It looked so fascinating that I had to capture it.

8 Cute, Funny, and Even Realistic Looking Uterus Cakes

I have to be honest, I haven’t written in a few days and I’ve been terribly distracted by planning for an upcoming vacation. Sometimes ideas for this blog pour out of my head and other times, I’m a dried up well. When I try to sleep, they’ll probably start flowing. *sigh*.

Sooo… Since I can’t think of anything spectacular to right at the moment (I’m also tired – don’t blog while tired!) – I thought I’d share with you a smattering of uteruses… in cake!

Video Blog Response to Mock-Inspirational Questions – Eek!

I last wrote a mock-inspirational post about blog topics, addressing the classic inspirational advice that’s normally given, followed by dishing out some of my unique “inspiration”. It was written mostly as a joke, but also an open invitation (*hint*hint*) to anyone who wanted to write a blog about one of the topics I’d mentioned. I stated somewhat vaguely that I’d gladly link back to anyone who wrote regarding one of those topics provided they either left a comment about it or made a link reference in their own blog. (*hint*hint*)

The joke part is that I really don’t expect someone to write a full article on their own blog about any of the disgusting things I mentioned.

That was the other day… this is now. Now – it’s time to pony up.

In a totally random coincidence, a friend of mine asked on Facebook the other day for suggestions of a similar nature:

Does anyone have a crazy question to ask that I’ll answer on my next video blog? Running outta stuff to talk about! Any questions get a shoutout too 😀

She asked that after I’d already thought of writing my mock-inspirational post, and so I threw her a couple “crazy” suggestions and used the rest that I thought of to write my own entry. Just as with my article, I was just being silly. Aaaaaaand… I somehow kept forgetting the word “video” in there. *Sigh*

Yep, she answered my questions. She had several others she answered as well, but my boyfriend and I conveniently seem to have asked her the worst ones of all.

She was asked these questions and some others, and faithfully answered every one in a video:

  • “Have you ever gone into a room for something but forgot what you went in for?”
  • “What instruments would you like to play or learn to play?”
  • “What TV series do you like?”
  • “What’s your favorite pizza topping?”
  • “What’s your favorite song at the moment?”

Pretty mundane… right?

Now here are the ones my boyfriend and I asked:

  • “How many times do you use the bathroom in a day?”
  • “How do you think your life would be different if you always had gas?”
  • “Have you tried tasting dog food?”
  • “Do you leave the toilet seat down?”
  • “Have you ever forgotten to wash your hands after using the bathroom?”

Now do you see why this is embarrassing? Let me again remind you that this is in a video.

To make matters worse, she was posting screen names in her video of the people that asked the questions. THANKFULLY she spared me/us.

I suppose I was asking for it all along (still am)…but seeing it in..a..video.. just made it so much more embarrassing. She said she got a ton of hits that day too, so that could’ve meant hundreds or thousands of people wondering what kind of twisted freak I am.

Keep in mind however, the offer still stands – if you use one of the ideas (for a full entry of at least a few sentences, i.e. a description not just an answer) and reference me, I will gladly post a link back. I think it’d be wonderful.
