Night and Day

Black and white, thin and stout. (That's what it's all about. Ugh!)

So Stud Muffin got himself a new toy serious business tool.

It's called Jawbone UP and it's a combination bracelet wrist band and iPhone application that tracks your steps and movements throughout the day. It also tracks your sleeping time and gently wakes you up by vibrating on your wrist. (We'll see if it really wakes him up!)

I guess it's suppose to make you aware of your activity level and help you get healthy.

In the spirit of tit-for-tat, I got a new serious business tool toy too! Mine doesn't care if you exercise, in fact, it's whole purpose in life is to keep you from exercising!

Check it out!

A doughnut maker, you say?? Darn tootin!!

I was reading a magazine the other day and it featured an article about frying doughnuts at home. As much as I love to eat fried dough, I'm not as keen to actually do the frying myself.

Something about burning down the house. Could be because the time I tried to make Chinese Sweet 'n Sour chicken at home, I melted the slotted spoon in the cooking oil.

Okay, must try not to overfill it!

I got a recipe off the worldwide innernet, and it's not bad! Would be nice with a cup of hot coffee.

I can imagine all kinds of doughnut varieties. These are sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, but I have plans for chocolate frosted ones, glazed ones, pumpkin-spice ones.

After using his wrist band, Studly will be looking like this,

Okay, this isn't Stud Muffin, but it IS my nephew Colton Foley. Hi, Cole!

and I will be looking like this:

But I ask you. Who got the cooler toy?? Show of hands, how many people want to use Studly's new gizmo, and how many want to try out mine? Let's be honest now!

And, ummm, holy cow your nephew is hot. I had to check on FB, cuz I was sure you were teasing.

*sigh* you don't find guys that look like that around here... maybe it's too cold?

Yes, he is my nephew, but you'll have to settle for a donut!

barefoot gardener said...

That's okay. I like donuts. ;D

Poor Cole...His pants don't fit :-)

Hey that is a super cool, retro vintage donut maker thingy...Where did you score that??? A 1960's Woolworth (or Holiday Mart) blow out sale?

You really should answer your younger sister's texts you know...

Nah, Cher, I used H & S Green Stamps I got from Star Supermarket! Okay, I really got it at TarJay.

And there are a lot of things I "should" do, like NOT eat doughnuts!!
