Artist Justine Lai gave me a chuckle today. She has taken to painting herself having sex with all of the US presidents.... In chronological order! I like the one of her and Mr. Lincoln the best so far.
Check out her site for more lovely paintings. Click HERE.

Tonight, my roommate Christina and I went to the roller skating rink for some much needed practice before derby try-outs. I love it! I had so much fun and I feel like I am getting much better and am quickly gaining skills that I will need for the skill tests that I will need to take in order to get on the team. I think the smile never left my face the entire time I was skating- I probably looked ridiculous and that is OK cause I felt ridiculous-ly happy! Yay!
Thank my lucky stars for El Bait Shop in downtown Des Moines and it's lovely sampler of beers. OK, so maybe I am a bit naive or something but I thought the beers would be a little bit smaller. I was certainly a bit tipsy after finishing my sampler entitled, "You Put What In My Drink?" The beers arrived on a plank and I had a lovely time going around and trying each. The interesting thing is that the flavor really seemed to change when I started to eat my meal. For instance, the Rouge Chocolate Stout tasted considerably more chocolate-y and a bit coffee like after having salty food. All in all, I would have to say go sample some beer at El Bait Shop if you are in town. It is a darn good time.

Today's article on Yahoo News was a bit of an interesting, but hardly shocking one. Some genius was awesome enough to experiment with the decomposition time of a McDonalds Happy Meal. Not so surprisingly, the thing has resisted decomposition. The kicker is that the food pictured is 6 months old! It's like zombie food or something!!!!!

Always one to give in to spontaneity, when I was itching to get out of the house last night and heard that Kelsey had a bottle of plum wine sake, I definitely felt much need to celebrate! I packed up a bar of Lindt dark chocolate with orange, Nutella, an apple, and a six pack of Boulevard Wheat. What ensued was nothing more than a giggly good time.
I will never stop loving my teen anti-hero, Kurt Cobain. This picture is amazing. I will forever want to know more about this man and the mystery enveloped around his life and death.
British street artist Banksy created the most recent Simpsons intro. Alot of interesting talk has resulted from this gutsy move. What do you think?
