Randomness & our new favorite product

The semester is winding to a close and it's been a hectic month. Just gave my research presentation in seminar class yesterday (it's mandatory prior to graduation). Isn't this crane mobile pretty? It's hanging from the ceiling in the corner of my office. When I'm taking a break from my work, I sometimes just stare at it and relax. Mike made it for me a few Christmases ago.

My basil plant is dying. Mike said I should not have starting growing it during the winter months. Today the weather report said it was 13F, but it feels like -1F. Welcome winter! I'll be bundled up in down jackets, mittens, hats, and scarfs until late March.

Our new favorite product. Oreo Sipahh straws! Yes, they are geared towards little kids who like to drink flavored milk. But they are yummy! If you have not seen them before, I'll give you a lowdown about the product.
Instead of adding chocolate syrup or mix into a cup of milk, you drink a cup of milk through a straw filled with chocolate and cream flavored pellets.
It's not too sweet, but flavors the milk. Plus it's innovative and it's fun for kids (and adults) to watch the milk and pellets travel up and down the straw.
Well Mike and I are off to the AFT progressive dinner tonight. I'll post about that too!

These straws are really good! I think they might be sold at Walgreens, but I got them from a guy who works at Kraft.
