Udderly rediculous or does Ice cream do a body good?

So, would you buy ice cream, even Ben and Jerry's if this was on the label?

PETA has proposed that Ben and Jerry's make ice cream with mother's milk instead of cow's milk. C'mon. That's disgusting, in fact that might be the only way I might stop eating ice cream. If you don't believe me, read the article yourself.

Is Heather a masochist or scholasticly malnourished?

Today at work Iaccidentally messed up our database. I'm one of the few that everyone else generally relies on to be technilogically savy. I've been wanting to learn how to use MS Access and have even signed up for a class with communtiy Ed 3 times, only to have to cancel because of my work schedule. So today I decided to teach myself. So I saved a copy of our database in my personal drive, so as not to corrupt the working files. I've done this a hundred times with other files and applications, but something went horribly awry. The changes I was making in the practice drive were somehow saved to our working drive. The bad news is I have no idea how to fix it other than calling our technology people to see if they can restore it. The good news is the applications I accidentally removed are ones we haven't used in two years and they are seriously outdated. The other good news is the one application we actually still use is still in tact. The irony is that's what I was trying to accomplish, just not permanently. So, my new project is to teach myself how to use Access. Does that book look really thick to anyone else?

I find my self often faced with scenes that I can only respond to with, "Seriously!." I'm at a loss for how people act sometimes. (Being that I'm so perfect and all) And yes April, I too think of the kid from Stand By Me (Vern)when "Seriously" pops in my head.

I saw a little situation today which litterally mirrored this video:

While at work today on the concourse of the SLC airport I witness a women standing at the threshold of the smoking aread, sucking on her cancer stick, talking on her cell phone, and yelling for her two year old todler who was running away down the concourse. I wanted to help this woman reassess her priorities. The suggestion in my head was, "I know the cancer sticks cost like $1 a peice, but stamp it out, tell your friend on the phone that you'll call them back, and go get your kid. You are actually allowed to leave the smoking area."

One day I'm actually going to invest in Photoshop. I got bored last night and started playing around. The result...I give you SuperShepherds!

I hope not

I saw this in my friend's blog and thought I'd try it. I really hope our kids actually come out cuter than this.

One tomato, two tomato, three tomato...more?

...Yeah, probably not. Joshua started a patio garden for us this summer. He planted 4 tomato plants in pots and a herb garden in a small planter box, on our 6 ft x 10 ft patio. Of the 4 tomato plants, we have 3 whole tomatoes. Well, we had one tomato, which we already ate. We shared it, all 3 delicious bites of it. The other two tomatoes are still tiny and green. It's already September, so I don't know if these two will make it or not but we are hopeful. Can you see 'em?

As for the herb garden, well, it mostly looks like grass. The basil sprouts never got any heighth to them at all. So much for homemade pesto this year. I think we started a little late in the season. This just make us all the more anxious to find a house ASAP, with some yard space for a garden.

I just don't get it

The Temple of the Jedi Order is the nexus of Jediism
The real Jedi religion of
The Living Force Of Creation

Yeah, so Joshua found this article about a "Jedi" wedding here in Utah yesterday. The brother, a real "Jedi" Reverend, officiated the wedding. He stated, "Catholics carry crucifixes, and we carry sabres," . I have to say, this has puzzled me for a whole day. So I went to their website and I have to say...I think Jesus Christ and his prophets have said it better, over and over. Sigh...why is it so hard for the world to acknowledge that the "Force of Creation" is a who, not a what?

Although, Joshua says a light sabre of his very own would be cool.
