wisdom teeth change face shape

HAHA so I have always been interested in the kinds of things that my blog Stats page tells me, like what my most "popular" (i.e. more than 5 views) posts are and all that stuff.  Something especially interesting has been that my Wisdom Teeth Part II post has been gaining in popularity and always had referral links from Google Images. Once I tried to find it myself through Google Images typing in the keywords the referral said, but I couldn't find it.

But today I tried again.  Type "wisdom teeth change face shape" into Google Images and see what comes up.  If you are lazy, I will tell you that my dehydration picture is fast becoming the most popular image result on the internet for "wisdom teeth change face shape" which is slightly ironic since it actually does not portray anything to do with wisdom teeth other than another method of fattening one's head.  However a few images down you will find me again with my real wisdom tooth puffiness.

So while this blog has not yet taken on the massive popularity I'd hoped for (although I'm sure it will someday), I guess you could say I'm somewhat of an internet celebrity in my own right.  I'm the Wisdom Teeth Change Face Shape girl!  I'll probably become famous soon so be proud that you saw me here first.

And people of the internet actually looking for a wisdom teeth change face shape picture:  that one is not from wisdom teeth.  It's from dehydration.

Adventures in Gardening (and Composting)

So last you heard of my gardening skillz, I had just planted some heirloom tomato seeds fresh off the internet and was crossing my fingers that I would a) germinate them and b) not kill them after the fact. 

SO.  The results of the experiment so far are as follows...

After one week:

Cute!  I was so happy that they existed.  An artsy closeup:

After about 2 weeks:

Another artsy closeup:

Up until today I had planted 4 seeds in each little pot under the assumption that probably a few would not germinate... however they pretty much all did except for two (and one of those two looks like it might come up yet).  So today, I separated all the plants into their own little pot (with the intention to transplant these into bigger pots outside eventually, probably in early June when all danger of frost is long gone).

However after transplanting all of the little guys this afternoon, I noticed that they had all wilted pretty badly! 

I took them back in the house and set them in a sunny spot and gave them lots of water (because plants like sun and water, right?) and each half a spike of plant food and hoped that they would come back to life!

Poor little guys!  Luckily a few hours later they are almost all wilt-free.

I currently have 22 individual tomato plants, 21 of which I grew from seeds (I bought one from the greenhouse yesterday just in case I somehow killed these during transplant etc.) and are doing great!  I'm excited about this because it was super easy to do and I will have more delicious tomatoes than I know what to do with this summer.  I'm lucky I have a house with a lot of sun though, otherwise this wouldn't have even been worth trying.

ALSO!  In other fun news, today I went to the Farmers' Market and bought a vermicomposter from some kids that were raising money for their class to go to an academic competition and were part of a program trying to get vermicomposters into every classroom in Saskatoon.  I have wanted to start vermicomposting since a couple departments at work started doing it so I was excited to be able to pick up a kit today!

Vermicomposting, if you don't want to click the link, is composting using worms to speed up the process.  So basically I have a Rubbermaid bin full of worms and dirt in my garage, where I can put my compostable materials.  The worms will eat the compost and poop it out, resulting in really fertile soil for growing things.  We actually had one of these at home when I was a kid for a year or so (until we accidentally left it outside in the rain and it filled with water and the worms all drowned, oops) and it is a super easy way to compost without having a huge heap somewhere and without the smell.  Hooray!

Sorry, and here is a great commercial

I haven't posted in forever!  I am sorry and I hope people still read this.  I have been ridiculously busy lately but this week I am not too busy so I'll put some hopefully interesting things up on the internets for you to read.

COMING SOON:  my very successful attempt at producing tomato seedlings!

For now, I bring you my favourite commercial of all time.  It is funny and true.  In my opinion it should have won every advertising award out there.
