Speaking of the majestic moose, here’s the Swedish Chep making some “chocolate moose”





the wedding philes: are diy invites worth it?

20 04 2009

invites

I consider myself a pretty computer-savvy tot, so when the time came to pick out wedding invites, I decided to take the economical route and buy the “do it yourself” wedding invites at my local craft store.

Fail.

WARNING: It has been my unfortuante experience that these DIY invitations can be more of a hassle and money-pit than going to a professional to have your invites done.

Why?

1.  Not all  kits are created equal. My kit, although cute, has no extra paper included for  reception information, directions to the church and reception venue, etc.  This meant that I ended up having to try to match and buy similar stationary to include in my invitations.

2. Your printer gets a heck of a workout. Think about the cost of buying extra ink for your printer AND if your printer can do a nice job on all of the invites.  My printer did okay, but some things I had to make bold just so it would show up better on the paper.  Which of course meant wasting ink.  Also, I had to print every piece of stationary individually because my printer kept lining things up wrong if I tried to print more than 2 invites, labels, rsvp cards, etc.  in consecutive order.

3.  Labels are a p.a.i.n. I had to cut and paste all of my addresses onto their pre-made labels.  Argh!

4.  ALL assembly required. Once everything is printed out, you lose what sanity you were hanging onto by putting together 200+ invitations.

So, my advice is, if you’re going to do the DIY invitations, make sure you have the time, proper equipment, and desire.  Also, these kits aren’t as cheap as you may think they are.  And lastly, if you choose DIY, do yourself a favor and keep it simple!

Happy printing!





inneresting fact: feel a little bloated? maybe you’re carrying your own twin!

India resident Sanju Bhagat always had bit larger stomach, but he got extremely worried when it suddenly started growing bigger and bigger. Thirty year old Sanju Bhagat was rushed to hospital and his stomach condition was diagnosed as an stomach tumor. To a doctor’s surprise it was something extremely different and very unusual. From the birth Sanju had his twin brother living inside of him like a parasite. This phenomenon is extremely rare since parasite twin brother has to survive by leaching on its brother’s blood supply. This bizarre medical conditions is called fetus in fetu and it occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside of its twin. Doctor Mehta who was operating Sanju Bhagat said: “First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair.”

Oh man…that’s just so gross.

guess what you got in your easter basket…

Some chocolate flavored tots and (du du DUM)…..a polar bear attack!

The Daily Mail reports that: She was bitten by one of the four older polar bears in the enclosure and not by the famous Knut, who took Germany by storm as a cub after he was hand-raised by a keeper.
It is not known why the woman pulled the dangerous stunt but she initially appeared to be elated as she swam towards a bear in the enclosure.

Oh, those crazy Germans! 

Enjoy, kids. And Happy Easter!

zombies-024

Woody Harrelson is my new hero–and not just because he rocks the name “Woody” and looks great in a dress! Dude actually used the ever-so-classic “zombie defense” after scrappin’ it up with a TMZ pappo.  (“Woody…this is assault, Woody….Woody…you just assaulted me….Woody….don’t touch me, Woody….Wooooooodyyyyyyy!!!”)  The guy deserved a slice of Woody wrath, if you ask me.

This is the statement Woody released after the incident:

“I wrapped a movie called `Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.”

I L.O.V.E. that he used the phrase “quite understandably”–as if the judge is just going to be like, “Oh, yeah, man. Yeah, I totally get that. Case dismissed!”

It must be so much fun in Woody Harrelson’s mind.  I picture it to be a world not unlike PeeWee’s Playhouse…only with more weed.  And without that stupid whiny pteridactle. But Chairy is there. Chairy rocked. Wait…what was I talking about again?

from the closet to the relationship grave

I’m really flippin’ glad that Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are no longer together, because I’m sick to death of seeing pictures of them.  Every time I pull up my fave gossip sites, these fuggy muggys are always staring back at me, with Samantha’s dumb-ass expression on her face:

Lohan = high as a Chinese kite

Ronson = “Hello, I’m not yet aware I have girly parts”
