Just a quick note to God, or the Fates, or Whatever Else might be Out There:

If ANYONE had EVER mentioned SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS to me, lo, these many years ago,

I WOULD HAVE REMAINED CHILDLESS!

also, there is not enough Ativan on the freakin' planet.
 

That is all.

Ahh, you just reminded me why I don't have any children :)

Yes, the annual science fair project. The only time I won was the year my mom did my whole project because she didn't like the way I was doing it.

i don't WANT to win; i don't even wanna place. I JUST WANT SOMETHING WRITTEN DOWN ON POSTER BOARD THAT LOOKS LIKE MY KID OWNS AT LEAST TWO BRAIN CELLS TO RUB TOGETHER.

and--parenthetically--because i am gimping around the house, shouting enthusiastically, "It'll be FUN! We can DO it! We'll make a memory that'll last a LIFETIME!" koda is now cowering in a corner of the kitchen, mumbling, "ummm.... mommmm.... you're scaring me...." [with a sweet, wry smile on his face].

that whole not having kids thing? was a damned sound decision, my dear.

Note I said she TOOK OVER the whole project. I just need to do the damn thing and had a perfectly good idea going but it wasn't good enough I guess so she ended up doing it for me.

It wasn't fun and wasn't a great team building mom and me time I tell you that.

What are you guys making anyways?

we are stealing an experiment from the ever popular 'mythbusters' tv show. we are going to 'find out' the quickest way to cool a can of beer--ice, ice and water, or ice and water and salt.

only... we're using soda. :( which is actually a good thing--else koda would... uh... already be missing the most important component of this experiment. hee. [and--normally--i'm one of those 'helicopter moms' too, hovering over everything, and demanding perfection, and, eventually, taking over to insure said perfection. but between trying to quit smoking, and depression, and playing med roulette, well, i've just gotta say, I DON'T FREAKIN' CARE!!! and it feels damned good.]

mmmm beer. Sometimes it is okay to say blerg to it all.

So what is the fastest way? I remember seeing that episode but unless stuff is blowing up I don't remember any of the details.

the fastest way? go to the nearest convenience store and purchase a small, brown, paper bag for a few bucks. then have the kindly cashier drop a nice, cold can into it!

seriously, though--ice, water, and salt.
