mullacc, the Lebowski references get better toward the end of the series. No spoilers, but it's awesome.
And my new favorite thing is moving the ducks out of their pen and letting them free range around the yard committing a thousand little slug genocides everyday. They're fucking hilarious with their running around and quacking.
Next spring I'm going to try and talk my wife into indian runner ducks instead of khaki campbells for the shear lulz. I mean, my god, they're ducks that stand like penguins!
These egg poaching thingies. Just used 'em this morning, and they make the best damned poached eggs, without the hassle of my gran's aluminum thingy that always slides off the rim of the pot causing a stream of cursing and wasted eggs, and so much easier than the straight-into-simmering-water method.
stet--ducks! If I were staying on the island, I'd seriously consider getting ducks.
the AWESOME new boots I picked up on sale last Saturday. Tall, black equestrian/military style, mid heel, with a vertical leather strap & buckle detail on the shaft. Can't find a link to a similar style anywhere but they are oh-so-pretty-and-comfortable, and also eminently suitable for stamping upon the necks of my minions.
My new favorite thing (not so new, and something I don't actually own) is either the Nikon D700 or D3. I want them so very badly, but sadly not in the budget for this year, possibly the end of next year, if the Lord is willing and the crick don't rise.
