Things To Do In Brooklyn When You're Bored

I know I've been a bad blogger, lately. Truth is, I've been so overwhelmed by craziness at work, Mrs. Nator's craziness at work, both of us fighting colds, my friend J taking a severe turn for the worse, family stuff, and getting ready for the holiday/our anniversary/birthday getaway that I can barely talk coherently, nowadays, much less write an interesting post.

So, instead, I give you some stupid videos of us nuking leftover Peeps jack o' lanterns. All artwork, including the stunning black icing portraits of us, by me.

You're welcome.

What did they taste like after all that?

Just to show it IS educational, TY, I did discover, despite my oral dismissal in the video, my theory that the black icing caused the nuked mallow to split was correct. Probably some kind of surface tension effect due to water content and/or temperature, or some science shit I don't understand.

And Ken - they are very sweet. When still warm, they are soft, stringy, can be pulled to great lengths and retain remarkable tensile strength. However, once they begin to cool they get brittle and taste more of burnt sugar (than burnt tongue).

Damn! Somebody get me a show where I do weird experiments, like Beekman or Mythbusters.

These were fun.

I love microwaved marshmallows. Great way to do smores!
