This video was featured on a BoingBoing post.
I've been obsessed with the song ever since.
I like to think about lobsters shuffling off to buffalo.
(it's a tap step)

I may have to do a card series about it...

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

A Challenge

I have signed up to participate in the
Thing-a-day Challenge 2010.

It takes place in February, and the point is in the title.
You create one thing, every day, for one month.
I might take this in the culinary direction too..
Maybe just on Thursdays, when most of my time will be
spent at work making desserts.

Challenge starts Monday.
See you then.

I have already compiled a list of projects, plans,
and resolutions that I've made.

Here they are in no particular order.

*Create an actual savings account.

*Plant an herb garden
Or should I say, try to keep it alive. I buy potted herbs every year
and every year I manage to kill them.

*Learn how to make yogurt.

*Learn how to can
This goes along with the whole "create less waste" plan
that I am going for this year. Plus, it will allow
me to have summer foods in winter months.

*Learn how to take better photographs.
Lucky for me, I know plenty of excellent photographers.

*Be a localvore

*Create a gift log
Each year I struggle to remember what gifts I have given people
for different occasions. This will allow me to not buy people the same thing,
and will prevent supreme embarrassment.

*Learn how to make kombucha

*Try to sell at 1 craft show a month (at least)


*Continue with French classes

*Travel as much as possible
