Off the official website:
Q: "Not all bananas are the same size or shape, so how can the Banana Guard fit them all?"
A: The Banana Guard was specially designed to accommodate the majority of banana sizes. Our testing indicates that over 90% of commercially available bananas will fit into the Banana Guard. Highly curved bananas can be straightened ever-so-slightly without harm to fit the Banana Guard shape. The opposite holds true of very straight bananas.Q: "Will the Banana Guard keep my banana fresh at the end of the day?"
A: Yes, the Banana Guard contains special ventilation holes that allow the banana to ripen at its natural rate.
This is not a joke, this FAQ is really on the website....
Q: "Is there a battery attachment?"
A: No. The Banana Guard was designed for its intended purpose only as a device to prevent banana trauma during transport.
HEHE- banana trauma!

Give it a whirl! You will love it if you are a fan of Tang.

I was expecting a girl Napoleon Dynamite or a sappy weird teenage romance, but seeing on how it won all those awards I did want to give it a whirl. The storyline is very witty and it is touching. Not in the cheesy way, but in the well written, you can identify way. The characters are well developed and the actors portray them so nicely.
I loved Juno's attitude and manner. She was so casual about everything but intense at the same time. Her interests and hobbies were unique and she was SO INTO them. It was nice to see a confident teenager in a movie. Also appreciated was the lack of teenage girl, or any girl, drama.
Overall, great, great movie. I highly recommend. Have you seen it?

Review: The first half was actually good. Set in Scotland during WWII, the scenery is beautiful, the accents are fantastic, and the story line is touching. Second half gets pretty ridiculous when the boy actually rides "Crusoe" (as the boy names it) in Loch Ness. My advice...take it for what it is and watch it with little ones.

"If I ever met this person, I could right? I mean, I never would. Just hypothetically..."
I was restrained to 5 the other night and here is who I picked under the gun:
1. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
2. Orlando Bloom/Johnny Depp (this has to be a combo - as pirates)
3. Julian McMahon - aka Dr. Christian Troy
4. Bruce Willis
5. Leo DiCaprio (only the older version)
Who's on your list?

Examples from Victoria Secret:
This green zippy number is called a Zip-halter, one piece monokini by Kenneth Cole. The tag line on the website: "How low can you go?" Morally or what?
This suit has its own name: Vix (and it is trademarked). From the website: "Exclusively designed for Victoria's Secret. A stone-bold stunner." I would have to BE stoned to get into this thing.
This suit is from the Beach Sexy line. From the website: "Cut out for one stylish beach appearance." All that comes to mind here is banana split.
From the website: " A swim treasure to luster after, with handmade mother-of-pearl and glass bead embellishment." This suit actually has a metal ring on the front of it. If you paid attention in science class you would know that metal gets really hot in sunlight. Maybe branding is the new way to be beach sexy. "O" stands for "O man, am I hot!"
Have you seen these? Do you have one? They are becoming more and more common and I think it would be handy to have one (I usually do wind up with my purse on the floor).
There are many knock-offs now, but I think these are the originals:
The Purse Hook
Hollywood Purse Hook -
As seen on TV

Please welcome Impractical Shoes, one of my dear friends, to the world of blogging.
I just love her tag line: "The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases!"
Go check out her blog and leave her comments.
Then this morning I heard it on the news: QUAKE! Toledo was 310 miles away from the epicenter in West Salem, Illinois but we still felt the effects.

Do you find yourself encouraging (pressuring) your friends to start a blog? I do! Currently, I am working hard on two of my co-workers (D, this means you!) and I think they will crack. Most people complain that they don't have a good title and need to come up with one.
My suggestion: Just start blogging! Start with a generic title and change it later.
Those of you that started a blog because of a friend's encouragement, aren't you glad? I know that my dear, dear friend and inspirational blogger, Two Pretzels, encouraged me to start blogging and I am addicted. So, thank you K!
The layout of this development is great! Like a mini-Easton, it is very walkable and last night was a great night to be outside. I found the retail personnel helpful and friendly. NONE OF THEM WERE ON CELL PHONES! Can you believe it??
The Dillard's and JCPenny there are both very nice and have a lot more selection that their counterparts at FP. Translation: not trashy. At the end of the development is a movie theater. Restaurants like PF Chang's add a nice touch too (although not for me if you know the story).
Overall rating: worth the drive.

Axl responded politely actually (I would have expected a slam from the explosive front man). He said he appreciated Dr. Pepper's support of the album. His quote: “We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr. Pepper with our album Chinese Democracy, as for us, this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead’s performances are on our album, I’ll share my Dr. Pepper with him.”

When the bus did finally get there, it was packed. I had to sit next to someone, they didn't show a movie, and we didn't stop at a rest area (so I was dying of thirst). Don't say it Hurley...you get what you pay for. I guess the Megabus is a gamble at this point.

When you check into a hotel, do you like it when someone helps you to your room? I really don't. I think it is creepy and I would SO MUCH rather do it myself. I know that nothing would happen, but usually the "bellboy" is a middle-aged man that makes weird general conversation with me in a hotel room with one bed...and then you tip him. Yuck.

I never watch the show, so I looked her up. Her name is Marissa Jaret Winokur (click here for more images) and I can see the resemblance. I like her hair, so I will take it as a compliment!

The product comes with 2 AA batteries, so it is totally worth the $9. Do it....do it....
