I Want To Go To There

The World Beard and Moustache Championships were held yesterday in Anchorage, Alaska. Does this not sound like the most awesome event of all time? You could pay $20 for a general admission ticket or get VIP tickets for $40 and "sit among the contestants". I love any event that treats bearded men as celebrities simply because they have beards! The website says the event will "feature competition in a variety of categories that include everything from the delicate Dali moustache to the outrageous full beard freestyle."

And for entertainment (as if this isn't enough?), "the newly formed Australian beard team, is bringing its own band to Anchorage-- The Beards - to play "songs about beards, for people with beards" .

Story seen on NPR.

Dulce de Awesome

Have you ever tried to make Dulce de Leche? It is the easiest and most awesome tasting thing ever! It was in a pie that Chris made me and he decided that everything in the pie must be made from scratch including the dulce de leche. This just seemed like it would be a daunting task, but it was probably the easiest part of the pie. I highly recommend making this and putting it over some vanilla ice cream or just taking a spoon and eating all by its lonesome.

You will need: Can of condensed milk, hammer, and a nail.

What you do: Make two holes on the top of the can of condensed mild with the hammer and nail.

Place the condensed milk can in a pot of boiling water for 4 hours, making sure to replenish the water if it starts to evaporate.

And that's it! Done! And you should come out with something that looks like this...
