Attention all UHF Fans

I just wanted you all to know that I have crossed an item off my life's to-do list: I have just consumed my first Twinkie Wiener Sandwich (and, actually, my second as well), replete with hot dog, Twinkie, and spray cheese.

Review: OK. Not great, but not terrible. The tastes don't really mesh, so they're just kind of rolling around in your mouth together. And the Twinkie taste kind of dominates... I used more spray cheese in the second one to try to counteract this, but the Twinkie was still by far the most powerful taste. Really interesting texture though. Overall, I have no regrets, although I'll probably be eating the rest of the ingredients separately, since I think in this case I'd prefer each of the parts to the combination of all three.

Just thought you all should know... and for Dani... you know, it's just too much to explain. Chalk it up to one of those wacky pop culture references the others of us all know for no particularly good reason, and my propensity to abuse my digestive system.

PS, I tried to get an image of a Twinkie Wiener Sandwich to accompany this post, but Google Image Search failed me... sigh.

Kat and Matt do IKEA

Just some oak, some pine, some Norsemen, two Yale alums with a little extra time on their hands, a round bed, and a touch of Photoshop, and we have... Vitruvian Kat.

videos, take two

okay, since some of us were good little students and waited too long to watch the videos referenced in the previous post (procrastinating to procrastinate...that's a new one :-P), here's a quickie update with links that are available at this writing:

ok go

super mario

numa numa (which honestly isn't that exciting -- I originally included this to contribute to the buildup to weird al, but feel free to watch it anyway. just don't say I didn't warn you about the song getting stuck in your head.)

weird al

aaaaaaand -- because I'm feeling generous -- a bonus clip! what if ken burns' next PBS documentary explored a more recent conflict in our nation's history? I wonder...

more lego awesomeness

okay, people who should be in bed right now = me, but I stupidly went to youtube (just for one video! I swear!) and now I have several to share with you. join me in procrastinating, won't you?

I'll start you off with more OK Go:

super mario bros! ah, childhood.

the numa numa song (with a pop culture reference for dani). I apologize in advance for getting this stuck in your collective'll go away in a couple of weeks, really it will:

aaaaaand -- the piece de resistance -- some weird al goodness. note the itty-bitty segway.
