Ivy with Shot Block



I was playing with some shot blocks that Eikes left in the car last weekend and thought this was a rather artsy picture. I'm not so sure I like eating shot blocks but they sure are fun to stack up. Not much happening at Hoboken Hotel. It's windy and someone's garbage bin just rolled down the street. Wait...that's mine!

I'll bet that still-life looks even better in black & white. Oh, and if you see a green plastic trashcan with a sticker of Oscar the Grouch on it rolling by, could you grab it? That's mine.

I found some of those blocks last night in a cupboard-- they were hard as a rock! Anybody want them? DQ-- you could add them to your still-life. They are green (but I don't know if that was their original color).

Sorry Bunny,

But even in their hard-as-a-rock condition, I ate them.
They didn't improve my disposition any though, the bitter coldness is still winning.

Dang, Gunnar...you ate the carbonized shot blocks?? I'm impressed. You and Rachel could get together and eat all the stale food I've got in the house. ;)

Just so you all know, firm (or stale) black cherry shot blocks taste just fine. I experimented last night, and found the first bite a bit tough, but after that--- they are good to go.

Euuwww, if I wanted to glue my teeth together with sugar I'd get a box of Dots. Humm. Maybe Dots would sponsor a team? That'd be a cool jersey. I'll have to work on that.

I've pulled out more fillings w/ Dots,

Than anything else.
Course I've chipped teeth doing stupid things too, like using teeth for pliers and such nonsense.

Tonight dairyDog and I shared an old hunk of Sesame Semolina Bread that Betsy was trying to break up w/ a hammer. Tore up the mouth a little, but dairy and I agreed that it was worth it.

I guess the only other weird/bad thing I had today was a piece of that "organic" packing material that was in a bin at Speedgoat bike shop. You know the kind that just melts in your mouth, and tastes a bit like old school glue.
Ahh the memories...

Which reminds me of the time in 5th grade that I ate an entire wide rule tablet.
It didn't taste good at all, but I did win the bet.

Yummy thoughts,

gunnar.
... I'd better get into bed now, Betsy's already there waiting.
I think she's all ready asleep, shh...
