obama magazines

I was walking in Jewel / Safeway the other day, and this sight was enough to stop me in my tracks. the entire first row of magazines were filled with Obama covers. It's like he is one part hope, one part president, and one part celebrity. I look forward to seeing what the country can accomplish under his leadership.

edible brides?!

I am cleaning out my inbox, and discovered an old link that I never posted. Apparently, Chidi Ogbuta of Allen, Texas always dreamed of having a doll designed in her likeness. (Wouldn't it have been easier just to order one online? )

Anyway, for her September 22, 2007 wedding, she had a cake made in her likeness!

Not my style, but she gets points for creativity! But I have a lot of questions. When the groom ct the cake, where did he stick the knife? Did they cut up the cake in plain sight? Or come back with plates of body parts for dessert? Did she save the head to eat on their one year anniversary?

Speaking of strange food-related weddding dresses... in 2006, a Ukrainian pastry chef, Valentyn Shtefano, made HIS bride's dress out of cream puffs - 1,500 of them combined in a dress that weighed 20 pounds!
