Welcome to the first podcast for Travels Aboard The Blue Selkie. I'm having trouble embedding it directly to blogger.com so here's the link in the meantime. I'll tinker with it a bit more and see if I can fix it to show up directly in the post. Enjoy!

I've been on a smoothie kick recently because I've been seriously depriving myself of fruits and vegetables. For breakfast this morning I made a smoothie with raspberry sorbet, blueberries, strawberries, and black raspberry juice all from Trader Joe's! It was awesome. I gave God a taste and then she tried to steal it. I also got tangerine-mango sorbet, raspberries, and pineapple chunks so we'll see what kind of combinations I come up with.
If I ever have $400 to spare, the key words being to spare, I am totally getting a Blend Tec blender because ours is crap. Check out the link and the accompanying videos to see just how awesome the Blend Tec blender is. My aunt Jolie has one, which is no surprise. I've seen it in action, it can take on freaking anything.
*sigh* Off to finish writing a book review on The Family Romance of the French Revolution and bullshit some kind of annotated bibliography by Monday. Laters.

I just squished a spider with a copy of The Coming of the French Revolution by Georges Lefebvre. That's the most use I've ever gotten out of that book. But on to this week's random picture.
This is Pearl, our extremely photogenic (and spoiled) housecat. She loves posing for pictures.

This past Thursday The Colbert Report featured a special report on the hidden threat of hedgehogs. But more importantly, THAT KID HAS A TIMMY!

They're gianormous, I tell ya! Just look at these things. They also had "fancy cupcakes" next to them which were closer to actual cupcake size, maybe even slightly smaller. But they still had a huge amount of frosting.
So of course I bought one and took a couple pictures of it with Timmy for size comparison.
That cupcake's bigger than he is! You will also notice that there is at least as much frosting on this thing as there is cupcake. The frosting was not the best. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great, but boy was there a lot of it. It was pretty firm too so it didn't really have that melt in your mouth quality that I like with most frostings. On the other hand, the cupcake was nice and moist. Quite enjoyable. I'd eat it again if I were at Disneyland and had a hankering for a cupcake.
Incidentally, I had the "Red Magic" cupcake, seen here. Why is it called Red Magic, you ask? Because it turns out the term "Red Velvet" is copyrighted. Did you know that? I didn't know that. Bizarre and strange indeed.

Goood morning and Happy April Fools Day! Wait a minute...*looks at calendar* Aw, crap it is April first, isn't it? Well, here's hoping all you folks on PCs stay safe from the latest mega virus. My Mac (named Esk) and I will be sitting here enjoying a couple of mint juleps while you folks worry about malware.
I'm going to Disneyland today with Christina from High School choir. Or am I? See, it's funny cause it's April Fools Day! Ahahaha...oh never mind. I'm probably asking for trouble going to Disneyland on April First anyway. I'll just have to hope that my black cat, Oberon, will negate any would be trickster energy floating my way.
See? He'll just stare at them like that until they feel embarrassed and ashamed. Cats are good at that, you know. Especially mine. I think it's because he's secretly French. Au revoir!
