Gummy Worms = Pistachios

23 July 2010

In a long-awaited explanation of why pistachios are so yummy … they are somehow secretly, actually … gummyworms in disguise! I could find no other excuse for this display in the produce section of our local Pick n’ Save grocery store. It was as though the spell which should camouflage them as nuts had failed.  It amused me, and it’s the only photo I took today.

Dan as Will Kemp

27 April 2010

I went shopping this morning! Glenda (Terrill’s Glenda, not David’s Glenda) needed new shoes for a formal party she’s attending this weekend, and she hates shopping for shoes. Imagine! I can’t! I love shopping for shoes and I need very little excuse to jump in and do so on someone else’s behalf. So, I met her at the mall, and performed the role of girlfriend and shoe expert rather well, if I do say so myself! She successfully found a perfect little pair of black dressy heels that will be just perfect with her little black dress. Of course, I didn’t exactly get out of the shoe department unscathed, but, what I bought was off the sale rack! 😉

We grabbed a quick lunch at Olive Garden and then the afternoon saw me zipping off to the mid-cities for my accupuncture appointment. I cannot rightly remember what happened after that, except that I know I have no photographic documentation of whatever it was! So, once again, I cheat with a weekend photo. Above is a photo of Dan … dear friend, SAPA director, and one of my repeat customers. This is his crazy, new outfit for faire this year. I documented my work on it here on the KRuMB as it progressed, and here is the finished product on the man. I would have taken his photo sooner, but he wanted me to wait ’til he had the new hat! 😉 My best disclaimer is this: Will Kemp was a “jester”-like character … a flamboyant actor … really …
