28 Days Later

Dec 14, 10:57 PM · from the mouth of Tyler

Holy crap, has it really been 28 days since my last post? I check in pretty regularly to see if there’s been any sign of life, but I still didn’t realize it had been that long!

Oh well, like my last post, I don’t have anything ALL that important to say. I mainly want to point out two interesting things that have come to my attention.

The first is Maple Bacon Ice Cream. When I first saw those four words together, I did a cartoonish double-take. I actually saw it on a web ad for eBay, featuring food network chef Elizabeth Falkner. It was a very cool web ad! I almost never click web ads, but with this one, I clicked on it and it played a whole 3-minute video of her assembling this ice cream right in the little strip of this banner ad. Anyway, I’ve got an ice cream maker, so I tried it. It’s good! Seriously good! I used Neuske’s bacon, a high quality ultra-intense applewood smoked bacon from Wisconsin that I get from the butcher at The Fresh Market in Westport. And really dark, really flavorful maple syrup from Vermont. It’s somewhat of an acquired taste I suppose. My whole family thought it was a terrible idea, but after making it they’ve all conceded that it’s surprisingly good. (They still won’t sit down with a bowl of the stuff though.) Even I’ll admit that you have to be in the mood for it… I made myself a bowl the other night, but couldn’t eat much of it. It was too intense for me at that moment. But I’m eating some as I type this and loving it! Sweet and salty! And smokey!

I couldn’t find it with Google, so it mustn’t have a dedicated web site. But I did download it as a PDF, which I’ll link to here. I have serious doubts as to whether anyone in GoofyGuys’ infinitesimally small readership will make this, but there you go.


Something else I thought was noteworthy…

Today on Gizmodo I read about a company called Shidonni that allows you to draw a cute little critter on their website, and then they hand stitch an adorable plush version for you. And while $85 seems like way too much to spend on an ordinary stuffed animal, it seems like a downright bargain for an experience like this! Check it out!


And finally, while I know there’s a link to my Flickr account on the front page, LOOK AT MY CUTE BOYS!!

    Check out our cool holiday video! If Jess is into scrapbooking, then I guess this is my creative outlet for saving family memories. Check out the cuteness at the very end!

    Damn Tyler. You somehow managed to have kids that are not only cute, but also photogenic and articulate. And you picked good music on top of that!
