Stargate Cookie

If the Stargate doesn’t work, you can at least eat it?

Check out the video for instructions on how to make a giant Stargate cookie:

My friends and I have discussed this particular cookie method, and have come to a conclusion that we’d like something in the middle. Perhaps make a very large full cookie and get out your blue frosting?

What are your thoughts: keep the middle empty, or fill it with blue?

“Zero Dollar Weddings”

My fiance and I are fortunate enough to be finalists in a very large wedding contest, and to get awareness of votes, we’ve created a series of short videos titled “Zero Dollar Weddings”. These are our responses to the ridiculous costs of weddings, and the misadventures that would occur in trying to have an extremely budget event.

Enjoy and check out the rest of the videos on our YouTube page.

A Twilight Cookbook?

Unfortunately, this book has too few recipes for blood soup and human stew for my taste:
“Love At First Bite” is the official unofficial Twilight Recipe book. Want to relive all of the moments where Bella ate something, or the vampires pretended to eat something? Well, here you go!

Proper etiquette dicatates, however, that you warn your guests before serving them something from this book. Certain guys’ gag reflexes may not make it through a meal devoted to the book that’s been stealing their girlfriends and wives away.

Nerd Merit Badges

Summers are pretty crummy for adults. No sleepaway camp, no falling asleep exhausted after a full day of sleeping, and no more cookouts and ghost stories over a fire. But there is one thing that can keep that summer camp feeling alive:

Merit Badges.

You may no longer be eligible for knot tying or fire building, but Nerd Merit Badges are just as pretty and much easier to earn.

Use FourSquare? There are 8 badges for that.

Known as the Family Tech Support? Make your kids buy you this badge.

And of course, the toughest badge of all: Getting your inbox down to zero.

So gather your girlfriends around, get your laptop sashes, and get ready to earn some badges!

8-Bit Twilight

Love it or hate it, the new Twilight film was released today (or at midnight last night, for those keeping score). Twilight’s a cultural phenomenon that many of us can’t escape. If you haven’t seen the movie/read the book yet, but need to keep up the conversation with your friends, check out this 8-bit interactive Twilight.

It’s “Choose Your Own Adventure” style, so if like me, you’d rather see Bella with a shirtless underage hottie than an emo vampire, you can make it happen. (Spoiler, it won’t end well for you.)

So spill the beans: Are you Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Team I Hate Twilight?

Delorean Limo is Timeless

For your next special occasion or wedding, try arriving in style:

This photo came from the Delorean Club of Ohio. I’m not sure if they own the limo or if they just like looking at pictures of it, but I would pay good money to come out of this at my wedding.

Whether it be weddings, proms, or just an excellent day of wine tasting, taking a fun vehicle can add a bit of class and character to an already special day. And if it accidentally sends you back in time, bonus!

Rainbow Bacon

You’re making brunch for your friends, and you’re having bacon (of course). But this time, you want something just a little bit different…

How about some rainbow bacon?

Sure to wake up your friends (and make them question your sanity), this rainbow bacon may just ensure that you get as many pieces as you want to yourself!

It seems that the person who made this bacon individually soaked raw pieces into food coloring, and then pan fried it.

Would you try this? If you do, send some pics/video my way and I’ll post them. This may be one of the few activities I’m too chicken to try myself.

*Rainbow bacon may also work well for St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or Fourth of July. No better way to celebrate America than by dying fatty food to match our flag! God bless our country.

A Geeky Home

Live in Disney World!

As a child, you never want to leave the Disney theme parks. Rides, Disney characters, food in the shape of mouse ears–what’s not to love?

Well, if you still feel that way, you now have the opportunity to live there.

Walt Disney World is unveiling Golden Oak, a luxury housing community in between Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. These homes, ranging from 1/4 acre to 3/4 acres, and ranging in price from $1.5 to $8 million, are indeed meant to be lived in. In fact, they are protected from investors renting them out as vacation homes: a clause in the contract indicates that renters must stay for 6 months or longer.

Owners of these homes will receive special in-park benefits and VIP transportation, as well as the privilege of telling people they LIVE IN DISNEY WORLD.

Would you consider buying one of these homes?
