What is the internet?

I stumbled upon this clip on the Huffington Post today. It's from a 1994 Today show segment when the internet was just being put out there. Hard to believe saying something like "what is the internet" only 15 years ago.

Gorilla walking upright

Have you seen this, have you heard about this. There is a gorilla at a zoo in England that walks upright. I think it's pretty interesting. Here's some footage. And yes the music in the first one is pretty dramatic.

Homemade Christmas Gifts 2010!

In my effort to come up with non-expensive but still what I consider good gifts this past Christmas I decided to make them. I think I did a pretty good job.

For my family I made Cupcakes In A Jar and Gingerbread Caramel Crunch Popcorn.
Some of the jars had a layer of whipped milk chocolate frosting, Devil's Food Cake, vanilla frosting and Mississippi Mud Brownie.
Other jars had a layer of Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookie instead of the Mississippi Mud Brownie.

These jars had Vanilla frosting between layers of Red Velvet, Gingerbread and Cinnamon Swirl cake.

And here is the Gingerbread Caramel Crunch Popcorn. Which I think turned out great!

For my mom I made a clutch which I think could also be used as a cute makeup bag if your not into a carrying a small handbag.

For T-boy's gift I made a customized poker set. Which turned out to be a bit more time consuming than I had anticipated but worth it. There is a top level with cards and two rows of chips. You can pull that level up and underneath that is more customized chips.

Oh, and I also made pajama pants. Which should be the easiest thing but for some reason I got really frustrated. Maybe because at this time I was running on very little sleep.

And finally, my woman's grab bag gift for our big Christmas. I made a scarf and a small zippered wrist clutch(but I would use it as a purse tote or cosmetic bag).

I would like to start a small online store of items that I make. I'm going to make some test products soon to see how I can perfect things.

some kind of awesomeness

My goal in the new year is to do at least one post a week. Well, I almost didn't make it.... (TGIF!)Let me start my 2011 blog off right. Can you guess what kind of melty masterpiece I had for lunch today from the Grilled Cheese Truck.... a cheesy mac & rib.

Macaroni and cheese with sharp cheddar and bbq pork with caramelized onions. So, much for my healthy & fit resolution. Oh well, you have to ease into things slowly... so I chose to start that goal next week...

I promise my blog post will be more entertaining and interesting (HOPEFULLY) then this one. I'm leaving this open-ended to all things in my life whether it be finding cheap ways to decorate my new apartment to working on my documentary to places I go or people I talk to.

Here's to a good year... 2011!
