the awesomeist mother in law on earth provides the toad food*

As many of you know, your blog host turned 44 recently. I am, of course, married to an awesome lady, whose mother is also quite awesome. She sent me a card saying I am the BEST SON IN LAW ON EARTH (I am not bad) and there was, like, a 50 in there. NICE! Took my mother-in-law's daughter for some of that green curry and peanut sauce at Asian Noodle house and HOLY CATS I am nuts about green curry and peanut sauce (and dark beers). *tofu!

Earlier in the day I was at Cornell pot shop and these groovy teapots of mine popped out of the kiln....they are for Rob. Rob is a scientist of some type (viruses!!!!) and his office has had a weekly meeting on Fridays for 30 years, using the same teapot which a student had made a bamboo handle for, which Rob BROKE accidentally. I made the red and black exactly like the broken one, plus the groovy black one. The bamboo handle survives, and will go onto this teapot....

Mmmm... toad food. :)

So, I was eating hot pot with chop sticks and I'm guessing that's why Asian people seem to always be thin.. it's hard to eat with those things!

50 smackaroos! That's a nice haul.
Those teapots look sooo shiny. Very polished.

Now I'm feeling bad because (holy smokes, Batman!) I missed your birthday. :(
Glad you had a nice one!
