Date Night Fun

Wanna see what we did for date night? No, it's nothing R-rated. Get your mind out of the gutter and check out the movie clips at this website.




And remember, kids. Don't try these at home. Not even if you are a professional engineer.

These clips are ingenious! But I am always anxiously waiting for one of the blend items to break through the pitcher and impale that dear old man. So what did you blend?

I'm ticked at the Daily Herald. They buffalo-chipped the guy for making Utahns look bad.

Lighten up Herald editorial board.

Sarah: Welcome to biffy land. We didn't actually blend anything, since we can't afford a $400 blender, so we did the next best thing by watching the clips. My hubby is a mechanical engineer, so things like this are highly entertaining.

Kengo: Once again, I'm delighted to have made you laugh. One of many talents I am pleased to admit to.

LRH: Wicked awesome, if I do say so myself. I want one.

CW: What?? The Daily Herald is saying THIS guy makes Utahn's look bad? Me thinketh it is akin to the kettle calling the stove black. TDH is a pretty sorry excuse for a newspaper. At least the blender dude uses correct grammar and has a sense of humor about his job.

Oh, yeah! This is going onto my permanent list of stay-at-home date ideas.

Hmm, but what about the potential for youth activities?

Julie said...

Geo: Well, there is the link to the videos of "Things you CAN try at home." Perfect YM activity, dontcha think?

Exactly. I only read the Herald because a sweet neighbor of ours always gets an extra subscription when he pays his bill, which he also always gives to us. (And since it's free and since I read more compulvsively than I write, I can't help myself.)

I thought what I heard about this guy sounded fun, not stupid--people love him.

But as long as we are located next to Idaho, we don't need to be too worried about looking too bad: A city in Idaho passed recently an ordinance to require nearly all residents to keep a gun at home in case the town becomes overrun by people relocating after Gulf Coast storms.

Why does he put on safefty glasses after it's blended?

Nice! I totally want one...though, I'm not sure how often I'll blend marbles and golf balls.

I wonder if it works on live ammunition? Say, a box of 45 caliber rounds?
