notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

You Learn Something New Every Day

I have never been to a baby shower. Today, I had the opportunity to accompany my roommate to a "co-ed" baby shower down the street. Naturally, I declined. When she returned, I came to regret that decision.

My roommate told me tales of this baby shower, tales I will not soon forget. She told me of things I wish I could have seen in person, because these things are just that bizarre and unbelievable. In particular, she told me of a certain baby shower game. I'm not sure of the setup, but basically it goes a little something like this:

1) Someone secretly takes a variety of candy bars out of their wrappers
2) The candy bars are placed inside disposable diapers, and slightly melted into a goo reminiscent of poop
3) One by one, guests open the diapers and eat a sample of the candy bar poop inside
4) The one who guesses the type of candy bar is the winner, except clearly this game has no winners

Have any of you baby makers and/or baby shower attendees ever played this game?
