Shark attack sucker

Shark-Attack-Sucker_38048-lLookit the shark attack sucker! Yup, this is a lollipop that looks like a shark. It is blueberry flavored.

Shall I get this for Aaron so he can feel as if he had his revenge?

(By the way, I’ve been SUPER sick for over a week now. Working on writing about that as soon as I get out from under the butt-load of Empire posts I need to get finished.)

Lots of sharktastic fun at the 5th annual Shark Attackiversary


Another year has gone by and Aaron has managed to not get himself bitten by a shark! Oh yes, and he also survived that exact thing five years ago on October 29th. In honor of that, ever since the one year anniversary, we invite our friends over, drink shark-themed beers, and chow down on red velvet cupcakes to celebrate Aaron still being alive.

Speaking of the cupcakes, how cute are those cupcake wrappers that I found!? They’re totally made for Halloween, but they were too perfect not to purchase for a shark attack party.

This is straight up REAL

So I got an email from another Flickr member, Madam Bizarro with the subject “stolen photo” which read:

Megan–you might wanna bust this guy.

[insert now defunct link to a photo in Lightko Studio‘s facebook portfolio]

Took one of your photos of Aaron’s bite and claimed it is his special effects make-up. Yeah, dude, I guess it DOES look real, since it IS.

And sure enough, I clicked over and saw this: (WARNING: If you don’t want to see the inside of my husband’s leg, do NOT read any further.)

10 second rule

I need to do a LOT of blogging. I have posts and posts in mind:

* The life-changing salad.
* A trip to the farm. (Maybe those can be combined…)
* My Nerdy 30 highlights
* Something I started writing about High School and then stopped.
* Other things

So as I start to get busy and get writing, here is something fun to tide you over. It’s from my recent trip to Texas to visit my father.

Here is a picture of a restaurant on Lake Granbury:

I absolutely LOVE that shark week always falls on my birthday week. In honor of shark week I posted this piece of awesomeness on Offbeat Bride. And here is a picture of baby Aaron wearing the shark robe I gave him…

And here is a peak at the earrings I bought as a birthday present for myself:

These earrings by Rockabella Jewels are on sale for shark week!

And I am watching a Shark Week program that’s narrated by Malcolm McDowell. Can it get any better than this?

Boring recount of an awesome evening.

Do you ever have those unusually awesome days and think, “today should’ve been my birthday.” I have those every now and then. Yesterday was one of them…

Aaron and I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific on Monday for a late night screening of a Shark Week program about the Greenland Shark. It was such a good time and something we rarely do, public gatherings and the like. At one point some kid nearby did something annoying and i jokingly complained and Aaron said, ‘hey, you’re the one that wanted to go out in public.” :) So since it was such a rare occasion, I thought I’d take a video to try and capture the moment in time…
