It is so nice to be home (and up at the bunker… see featured picture) Soon things will become normal again (as normal as things and I can be…). My sleeping has been out of sync and I even went into the office at 3:00 am so I could get work done while I was “wide” awake. Would love to hear if any of you have “Jet-Lag” remedies.
My goal is to get this blog back to normal… (Weekend Projects at my bunker… have some cool things I want to do…. restart the loom… make more cheese… try to make wine and sausage.. etc..) I will be making cheese this weekend “Tomme de Midway”… but I will not be sharing the recipe as I did when I made the raclette… This weekend I need to wrap some things up.
Here is the Vacation “Catch-up”…. The rest of this blog will be a “dump” of stuff that I was going to post but decided it would be “TOO MUCH SPAM” for anyone that was following me. If this is not your thing… don’t continue reading… (just hit like… remember to feed my ego)
DUMP 1 (the 13 year old boy in me just laughed…) World Conquest
Here is my current map… I am still fascinated with world domination… If you are a bit confused I explain here.
While I was on vacation I only added 6 countries… but wow… what interesting countries… (feel stupid because I didn’t know one of them again… Namibia… would love to know more about this place… I imagine lions and their ongoing conflict with the hyenas... queue lion king music)
One day I will proudly be able to say… “Thanks for reading about my weekends people of earth… (not everyone… but everywhere)”… How awesome is it to share such simple things so broadly… and so easily. (makes me think I should write a bit more responsibly)
DUMP 2 Another Coffee Table Book Idea
While on vacation I mentioned in “a WPD post” my idea of creating the “McDonalds of Europe” coffee table book… I had another idea for a coffee table book that would be just as exciting:
The Flavored Potato Chip (or Crisp) Here are some of the pictures I would have posted as an example:
I will save the rest for the book…. (don’t want to give away the cow to sell the milk… think I got that wrong)
DUMP 3 Random Vacation Pictures (mostly weird)
(these may disappoint if you are expecting the typical tourist pictures)
Not sure that this is “appropriate”… and my wife told me not to post this when she saw me taking the picture… (hmm wonder what others thought as they witnessed me taking this picture.)
Please scroll past if you find this offensive… especially if you don’t know what you are looking at…
and…if you don’t know what you are looking at I am not going into any details beyond vague references… (you kids be safe)
This is a picture of a vending machine in front of a pharmacy… I have passed this vending machine for the past several years I finally notice that one of the vended products… where branded “classic jeans”… I am not sure what the “jeans” reference is suppose to evoke… or how this would entice anyone to make this purchase… in fact I find it quite confusing… I admit I do find jeans confortable… but hmmm not the right kind of “comfortable”… not the right material in my book… They are also showing a rivet… In college I used to dry my clothes in the oven… (no dryer) and I had a horrible burn experience with the oven hot rivets that made up the button fly of my jeans…. maybe hear lies my bias.
