Overheard on the porch...

Tam: "Am I easily amused?"

Gunsmith Bob: "Well, you did get awfully worked up over a spork."

Tam: "Yeah, but it was a folding titanium spork."

Gunsmith Bob: "It was still a spork."

Tam: "It's the folding titanium part that's important. Look, a Toyota Camry may be the most boring thing on the planet, but if you had a folding titanium Toyota Camry, that'd be something!"

Gunsmith Bob: "Well, at least it's not a shiny piece of glitter or a feather on a string, but you are pretty easily amused."

Isn't it nice that we have friends who keep us grounded?

I had to go to the Bloomington REI to get that spork. What's the problem??

(Catching up on the Bloggosphere today. Just saw the phone # for logowear. Thanks!!)

Don't feel bad.

My husband once entertained himself for a full forty-five minutes with a copper heatsink, a bowl of ice, and our wood stove.

Huh. Since Camries are the most common car here, a high percentage of our VBIEDs are Camries- so every one we see is NOT AT ALL boring.

But we wish it was.

I'd be impressed by a Camry made from ordinary titanium. They wouldn't have to use the exotic folding kind.
