Happy 100th Post!

I know I have been a terrible slacker. During the time I was not writing blog entries Bryce has been teaching me Action Script 3 for Flash. I am not very good at it so far, but Bryce is an excellent (and infinitely patient) teacher. This is the second thing I have made in Flash (heavily relying on guidance from Bryce). It is an optical illusion. Put the mouse over the button on the right of the image and stare at the red dot in the center. Look at it for at least 30 seconds and then click the mouse button. When you do this a black and white image will come up, but it will look momentarily colored to your eyes, Yay for tricking yourself!

Blurry Concert Pictures

It doesn't matter what kind of concert you go to. If you are holding your camera above the crowd and taking pictures they are going to be pinkish and blurry. These particular blurry pictures are of a band called No Quarter. They are a Led Zeppelin tribute band and as far as fake bands go they were a pretty good imitation. They were like really excellent margarine, not the real thing, but close enough that you are happy. Bryce and I went this Saturday to see them perform in Salt Lake.

Crispy Peanut Butter BallsYesterday it snowed and snowed and snowed. I have decided snow is like a dog. You can love snow a lot, just like you can love a dog; but sometimes the dog or the snow loves you back a little too much. In the case of a dog maybe he will be so excited to see you that he will poop right on your floor. In the case of snow maybe it will be so excited that it will plop a giant mountain of snow right on your car. You still love them, but man, cleaning up after them is a rotten time.
After my initial slippy slidey drive home I decided to cozy up in my house and never leave. Being sequestered from the rest of the world requires supplies so I made these tasty peanut butter balls. The end.

Hiccup Cures

I know why those vinegar diets work. Vinegar makes your insides smolder so you can never eat anything ever. Blech!
