Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
I Am Pleased.... [personal entry]

 Our very own version of the Blooper Reel from Mr. Wizard [aka the Science Fair Project] draws to a close.  Well... the experiment portion of it, anyway.  Koda ran around with his thermometer, took copious notes, and was amazingly focused on not skewing the results.

And the winner is... ice and water and salt, which brought the temperature of the can of Coke down to 33.5 degrees in a mere 15 minutes.

And the Kid is still alive.  And I have ceased whimpering and lovingly fingering shiny sharp objects.  So it's all good.

PSA [fair warning]:  There will be pictures later.

And for some reason, a can of Coke sounds like a fabulous idea right now. It's probably just as well that I do not have any. :-)

and i, on the other hand, never wish to see another can of coke again..... or a piece of poster board, for that matter.

In case you missed it, my Embarq email account is down. The my-real-name.com one still works, though.

Cooking; back in a while.

I'm glad you're still as lively as ever. Would've missed you!
<3 And don't even start obsessing with shiny, sharp objects - please.

Yay! You both made it out alive! Wishes you luck on the Washington project-- hope that's not as stressful as this one was!

YAY!! Well, that's wonderful news! Now put away those sharp objects, please. And don't go sticking anything in electrical sockets.

I can't wait for the pictures!

the sharp objects--after this morning--continue to beckon, i'm afraid. and here is the completed project.

All the more reason to put them away...

I'm glad. Really, really glad. :) I thought of you guys every time I went into the kitchen and saw my empty returnables sitting in the bin. Seriously... no joke!

I love the little Koda icon you've got going! He's looking victorious like he's got his hands over his head.

Now, now. The sharp shinny things are just for looking. That's why they're shinny. For looks only! Decorative purposes only, I'm sure it said so right on the label. Not intended for use.

but... but... i removed all the labels from the shiny objects! i can has them? please. and here is the completed project.
