Plot Holes, Domestic Vibrators and Culture, All While Eating a 3 Pound Cinnamon Roll

There’s not much to post about this week so I’m going to give y’all a smattering of things I found on the interweb.

We’ve all seen movies that not only have plot holes but they sometimes don’t finish the way we’d like.  How it Should Have Ended is a website that takes this stuff to a whole new level.  To me it looks like the video equivalent of Weird Al Yankovic’s parodies.  Just to name a few, there is Titanic, Tangled, Avengers, Transformers and Hunger Games and all are funny.

In the early 20th century, there was such a contraption called the Domestic Vibrator.  Now before y’all all get your hormones all in a humming tizzy this was not something for bedroom use.  It was a SEWING MACHINE!  See?  Things are not always what they seem.  All hail to The Bloggess who clued me in to this because, you know, I really needed to know about it.

How about some culture?  In the land of the snow, Elizabeth Anne Mitchell is looking on the beautiful side and posted Antonio Vivaldi’s – L ‘Inverno (Winter – full version).  Gorgeous music so please sit back and have a listen.

Speaking of snow, did you know that water is the only substance on earth that is lighter as a solid than a liquid? Now why is that?

And last but certainly not least, yesterday the Dude and I went to Lulu’s Bakery and Cafe in San Antonio for lunch.  We had heard of this place through the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food” TV show but it’s also been featured in the Texas Monthly Magazine as one of the “Best comfort foods in Texas,” and in Southern Living Magazine, it made the list of the “50 things you must do when visiting Texas.” Besides, it’s pretty much in our backyard so we’ve been waiting for the chance to check it out.

The food lived up to its reputation.  Great southern comfort.  But we couldn’t leave until we had picked up their signature piece – the 3 pound cinnamon roll.  Holy freaking cow.  This thing was ginormous and full of luscious butter and flour and cinnamon and sugar.

You want one? The great thing is that you don’t have to travel to San Antonio to get your own. They will send one in the mail to you!

Take care now.
