Easter Bunny Rolls – Pinterest Fail


e47e2f3a9d59d271bdb7598ff0aaf361If you’ve been on Pinterest anytime in the last month, then you had to have seen this cute idea for Easter Bunny Rolls being repinned a million times.

Seems easy right? My wonderful cousin thought so too. Being that she’s a GREAT cook, she tried them out this morning. ..and here’s what she put up on her Facebook page:

"Hey, you know those cute little bunny rolls that are all over Pinterest right now? They should NOT look like this! Hahaha! Happy Easter everyone!"

“Hey, you know those cute little bunny rolls that are all over Pinterest right now? They should NOT look like this! Hahaha! Happy Easter everyone!”

Needless to say, myself and all of her friends got a good laugh out of her Pinterest Fail.

It’s OK Cuz….I still love you and your cooking.

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy almost Easter everyone! It’s time to get those Easter baskets together, and I know lots of people look for great non-candy items for their baskets. I get that. My daughter is getting older so now she wants things like i-tunes cards, gift cards, nail polish, accessories, etc…however, I found some real winners today when I went online to see what other people put in their children’s baskets. By the way, none of these are a joke either…people actually suggested these.

Polished Rocks...What kid WANTS polished rocks?!?

Pine Cones...because your child can make cute crafts out of them. Yeah, OK.

Granola...just put it in a bag and tell them it's what the Easter Bunny eats. I'm sure they will be thrilled.

Veggie Crisps...because every kid wants this in their basket. They also said you could cut up real, fresh veggies if you have time. Thrilling.

A wedding picture of their parents. (I SWEAR someone said this!) "Look honey, it's your first Easter...and you were at our wedding!"

Fresh fruit cut into cote shapes. "They'll forget all about the candy!" No they won't!

Their "very own" boxes of band-aids. I guess so they don't have to bother you with that whole "I'm bleeding" thing while you secretly scarf down your own hidden candy!

You can cut out animal pictures from National Geographic, and put them in the Easter eggs. After the hunt, the kids can sort them as to where they might live. Wow, that sounds fun.

An extra 15 minute bedtime delay coupon...how generous...they get to watch half of a show on Nickelodeon.

Buy a few puzzles and put all of the different pieces in the egss. After the hunt, give the kids the boxes, and have them swap pieces until they all have their "own" puzzle pieces. Then they can do the puzzles. I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces. This would cause a meltdown of epic proportions. Trust me.

and finally…

A pedometer...so they can walk off all of that candy they didn't get!

Come on…. it’s one stinking day a year people! Give them a some candy and then other things that actually enjoyable!

Happy Easter everyone…and my deepest condolences to the kids who get any of the aforementioned items. Your parents are about as fun as watching paint dry.

Tea Bag Buddy


Tea_Bag_Buddy_1-sixhundredLook at what I found on Pinterest today…a “Tea Bag Buddy”. I’m sure if you are a tea drinker, you think this is a great product. Personally I just like it because the name cracks me up…”Tea Bag Buddy“.

I’m so excited!!! Guess what I finally found???  A “Tea Bag Buddy”!! My days of searching for one are finally over!!

If you want a “Tea Bag Buddy” for a mere $4.99, you can get it at Wantlist…or if you ask around…I’m sure you can find your own “Tea Bag Buddy” at no charge.

“Tea Bag Buddy”…while I find your actual premise to be Unpinteresting… I find your name to be pure gold!

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes


7670261837062448_B6corVE0_c

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…Stainless Steel Ice Cubes, courtesy of Sharper Image.

Here’s the product description:

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes

On a hot day, the ice melts way too fast and you’re left with a sweating, watering beverage. Instead, keep plenty of these Stainless Steel Ice Cubes on hand in your freezer. The transfer tray (included) and lid helps you keep them stacked and stored, while the serving tongs lets you serve them up for undiluted “ice” cold beverages.

• 1” square stainless steel ice cubes

• Re-freezable, Hand wash only

• Keep the cubes in the freezer; always ready to cool your drinks

• Filled with non toxic gel

• Cube tray allows easy transfer of cubes from freezer to glass

• Use again and again

• Non-diluting – these stainless steel cubes never melt providing a more flavorful and colder drink.

Now, I get the idea behind it…cold, non-watered down drinks…however, all I can picture is these babies smashing into my teeth when I carelessly drink from my glass. Sonofabitch, that would be unpleasant….no thanks. Besides, I tend to drink my drinks in a quick enough manner that my ice cubes don’t water my drinks down. Maybe it’s just me.  Plus, they make such a point about using the tongs to serve them with. Cleanliness issues aside, I think it’s because they will stick to your hand (or to your lip when you take that first sip)  like Flick’s tongue stuck to the pole in A Christmas Story.  

I had to...I mean, who doesn't love this??

I had to…I mean, who doesn’t love this??

I’m just not feeling it…but if you are, you can head on over to Sharper Image and order them for a cool $49.99.  I’ll just continue to push the magic ice button on my freezer door instead.

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes…I dub thee Unpinteresting.

Wine Glass Calorie Counter…No Bueno!


105060603777767069_GoQUgum2_b

Welcome to December!!! Every day, up until Christmas, I will be featuring all kinds of “Oh No They Didn’t” Christmas related posts…be it crazy gifts or crafts. Consider it my very own Christmas countdown for you! Hopefully you’ll check in every day to see what happy little treasure I’ve found!

So, this is what I found on Pinterest today…A Wine Glass Calorie Counter.

Let me tell you something about this…If I go to someone’s house for a Christmas Party, and this is the wine glass they hand me, I am going to be PISSED! Why would you try to ruin my beloved wine for me? I LOVE wine. It is the nectar of the Gods and this is the glass you pour it in, you heathen???  Wine falls in the same category as birthday cake…there are no calories in either one…haven’t you heard? If not, you really need to get out more!

You know who does something like this…those pain in the ass nutrition freaks who HAVE TO tell you “how bad” everything is for you. “If you drink two glasses of wine, you’ll have to work out a little extra tomorrow to burn that off.”  Shut up…seriously. Guess what sister? I’m going straight for the “Who Cares” line, and there’s a good chance I may drink most of the bottle…because it’s a god-damn PARTY…and tomorrow, if my head hurts a little, I won’t even go work out. I’ll just lay on the couch with my extra calories making some new fat cells, how’s that?!?  Did you give the beer drinkers mugs with calorie counts on them? What about the mixed drinks glasses or the Egg Nog glasses? Are you ruining those for everyone too, or is it just me over here trying to enjoy my healthy wine? Did you put  little caloric intake signs next to all of the dips, cheeses, and desserts you put out? No?!? Then don’t do it to my wine glass either! Besides, wine keeps the blood flowing…therefore, I’m fairly certain mine runs through my veins like a freight train. Next time, worry about yourself. I’m good, trust me.

This wine glass is nothing short of a deal breaker for me.  In fact, it may spell the end of a friendship. ( Although in taking a mental inventory of my friends, I can’t think of one who would do this!)  It is entirely unacceptable! In fact, if you put these glasses out, I think it’s a written guarantee that you are no fun and your party is going to be a few hours of my life that I can’t get back. Thanks a lot.

Ryan Gosling as a Slice of Everything Pizza


Looking for a Christmas gift for that special someone? Well look no further, because look at what I found on Etsy today…Ryan Gosling as a Slice of Everything Pizza.

I’m sure you know someone who loves Ryan Gosling. I mean, who hasn’t seen The Notebook?

I’m sure you know someone who loves everything pizza. I mean, who doesn’t love everything pizza? It’s a total crowd pleaser, and you can always just pick off the items you don’t like, or just eat it as it is, in all of it’s glory!

I’m sure you know someone who loves both Ryan Gosling AND everything pizza. I mean, that’s one hell of a combo right there!

If so, why not make your way on over to Etsy and buy this for that person with impeccable taste? It retails for $40.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Unfortunately there is no Christmas deal on this one, but hey, isn’t your Ryan Gossling/pizza with everything loving,  special someone, worth it?

Ryan Gosling as a Slice of Everything Pizza…That’s Shitsy!

PS – I am not down with his crooked eyes. He’s been in the running for “World’s Sexiest Man’ quite a few times. The man has eyes that are even on his face, so why aren’t they in this painting? Sigh.

PPS – I wonder if Ryan Gosling knows this fine piece of art work exists?

I Don’t Need Any Extra Help, Thank You!


Look at what I found on Etsy first thing this morning ..a recycled wooden “eat” sign. Let me tell you something…I am just coming out of my turkey coma from yesterday, and kind of disliking myself for the amount of food I managed to stuff down my gullet at my mom’s house. The very last thing I need to see right now is a sign telling me to “eat”!  Now if it was a sign telling me to “Stop eating, you dirty food whore!”, I might buy it. This? No.

However, if you would like a sign to remind you that you really need to pack on a few extra pounds this holiday season, then head on over to Etsy and buy one! It’s on sale for $26.00 and ships for a “mere” $15. There’s only one in stock, so as usual…hurry the hell up before it’s gone!

Recycled Wooden “eat” sign…That’s Shitsy! (Now where’s  myPepto Bismol?)
