"I don't even have any good skills. You know, like nun-chuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills" ....COOKING SKILLS

Sometimes Napoleon says it best. Just look........

This was my attempt at making german pancakes. *Sigh* There was more pancake on the outside of the pan than inside. It's experiences like this that remind me I need to practice my skills. For the record, they did taste good.

Home Un-Improvement: Part II

Chapter 4:
Sealing the Ceiling
When we last left this riveting saga, Dr. Thayn had just squared off the ghastly puncture wound in his otherwise pristine ceiling. Dr. Thayn, being a busy man, had to leave the project for a period of time. Then one afternoon, a burst of energy filled his overworked body and he ascended the ladder once again. This time, he had a piece of dry-wall in hand.
After many screws, several pieces of tape, and lots of putty, Dr. Thayn had done it! He had filled the hole which had haunted him for so long.

He felt so proud of his work, that he thought it would be appropriate to leave the afore mentioned taped section for all to see. Mrs. Thayn, on the other hand, was secretly wishing that he would continue the process of disguising the repair. Unfortunately, subtle hints to her husband went unnoticed.

Many days went by and Mrs. Thayn grew fond of the roughly repaired rectangle. It had become a symbol of life's unpredictability. If she was ever lonely or down, she would look up at it and smile. She would remember her husband and how he had unintentionally made their house a home. She would then remind herself to buy ceiling texture the next time she went to Home Depot.
