I Am Andy McDonald

My cousin started a blog recently to showcase his comedic talent. He's been writing jokes, skits and blog posts for years as well as doing stand up. You should really check out his blog; it's hilarious!

One of my favorite posts:

10 New Ben & Jerry Flavors

Lindsay Lohan's "Caught Lohanded"
Ginger, craisins, a discounted five fingers of whiskey, and a smattering of court dates.

Charlie Sheen's "Rehabananas"
Coke flavoring, two and a half scoops of random nuts, and bananas... tons of bananas.

Senator John Boehner's "Raging Boehner"
Pure rich white vanilla, rubbed down in caramel coloring, and man tears.

WI Governor Scott Walker's "Classless RE: Unions"
A lovely combination of Wisconsin's best native ingredients, broken up with a single wiener at the center. Taken rectally. Best served at zero degrees.

President Barack Obama's "Yes Pecan!"
Packed with promise, theoretically thought to be the most delicious ice cream available, though no one knows as it melts and evaporates under even minimal atmospheric pressure.

Glenn Beck's "White Chalk-olate-Tea Party"
White chocolate, pieces of real fox, and tea leaves for predicting the inevitable apocalyptic future. Rewrite history with the special blackboard container!

Fox News Host Megyn Kelly's "Y, God, Y?"
Looks real good, but leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Includes chocolyte chyps, gyn, raisyns, and a hynt of mynt.

Muammar Ghaddafi's "Coffee Ghaddafi"
A hyper-caffeinated coffee flavor that never seems to want to leave, is filled with nuts, and only hurts you because he loves you so much. Carton topped with a cute little hat.

Barry Bonds' "Berry Suspiciously Delicious"
Powerful, full-bodied chocolate number, accented with raspberries, shrunken prunes and a huge melon flavor.

Donald Trump's "Dits & Pieces"
A colorful wealth of show, but very little to sustain you. This tower of empty calories is combed through with a touch of lemon to make your face pucker. A favorite among female model types. Featuring Ben & Jerry's first ever holographic carton top. It looks like it's there, but it's not!

women's idea of color vs. men's

how true is that??

Eric Carle artwork

I work with children so I read a lot of books, many, many times a day. But my favorite children books of all time are all by Eric Carle. His books are simple, yet creative. I especially love the amazing geometric art in his books. I think it would be so cool to frame pages from his books to hang in a child's bed or classroom. Or even my kitchen, where they will probably eventually make an appearance.



sometimes i'm afraid to share my favorite things with others, like if they don't like it or don't like it as much as i do, it will somehow diminish the meaning for me. or if they like it too much, then it's no longer mine and isn't as special. i know it's completely irrational, but it is what it is.

i once tried watching casablanca {my favorite movie of all time} with a good friend and she couldn't get past the black and white opening scene. i think that was what secured this irrational fear of mine. if i love something, dearly love something, it takes a special person for me to share it with, even if it is only a drive-in burger joint.

Fancy Nancy tea party

I just came across a few pictures of my kids at school that I thought were so cute I had to share. A few weeks ago, we had a Fancy Nancy tea party at school. Everyone had to dress up in their "fanciest," funnest outfits. We sipped sparkling fruit punch, snacked on hors d'oeuvres and practiced our fanciest French phrases, like merci, ensemble and très chic. It was a ton of fun! And, as you can see, everyone was really excited about it (not just the teachers)!
