Texas Easter Eggs

Bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed jalapenos topped with guacamole.
Oh my.
First, you need one of these:
The pepper corer is truly one of the greatest inventions. Ever. The tray holds 36 peppers and works in the oven or on the grill. Core and clean the peppers, turning upside down to drain on paper towel. Stuff peppers with choice of grated cheese (can't beat cheddar jack), wrap the top with half slice of bacon, securing with toothpick through pepper, and set in the tray. Bake or grill, 350, for 20 to 25 minutes. Bacon crispy, cheese bubbly. You get the point. Top with a dollop of guacamole. Enjoy.
We just plowed through two trays of these puppies.

Brett Shadle: Member SEAL Team Six Dead

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Brett D. Shadle always had wanted to be a member of the Navy's most elite special forces unit. A year after enlisting, he made it happen and went on to become a highly decorated member of the Navy's famed SEAL Team 6.

U.S. military officials confirmed Saturday that Shadle, a 31-year-old special warfare operator chief, died Thursday when he and another SEAL collided in midair during a parachute training exercise over the rugged desert of southern Arizona.

Shadle was taken to University of Arizona Medical Center in Tucson, where he was pronounced dead. The other SEAL – an unidentified E-6 petty officer first class – remained in stable condition Saturday at the Tucson hospital.

Military officials said the accident was under investigation.

That little tingle in the back of my mind is going nuts on this one. All I can say is, rest in Peace Brett Shadle. Thank you for your service.

The rest of you members of SEAL Team Six, watch each other's backs. I don't think it's over.

Really, it's not a hard concept to grasp

Photobombing: Like a Boss

Yeah, something like that

Light it Up Blue: Autism Awareness Day

Monday is Light it Up Blue Day in preparation for World Autism Awareness Day. Display blue in homes, businesses, and blogs to support Autism research and awareness. In celebration, I just ordered these beautiful angel wing necklaces for the girls and myself. A portion of the funds go to research and therapy for people with Autism. If you know someone who'd enjoy wearing one, please buy one to show support. And remember to Light It Up Blue next week.

Sick Easter Humor

Since I've been informed by several concerned anonymous commenters that my eternal soul is destined for a fiery hell, I don't see any reason not to secure luxury accommodations.  And those of you who understand Easter in Christian terms, y'all know it has nothing to do with bunnies or eggs or delicious yummy chocolate.

Army Humor

Okay, I had an "Oh SHIT!" moment today when talking to Poppy. He informed me that he's been reading my blog. For the last month. Oh. Shit. This is the man who told me I would not be allowed to spend time alone with a member of the opposite sex until I was 18. And made it stick until I was 20. This is the man who, I'm sure, while holding my first daughter, was justifying a second possible virgin birth. This is my Poppy. And he's been reading my blog. Oh. Shit.

Now I have no real qualms, not ashamed of anything I've posted, until it comes to him. And then my head started spinning and I was trying to remember everything I've posted and comments made and responded to, and the pictures, oh Dear Lord in Heaven.... So he said to me, "You've only been doing this a few months and you've had that many people look in? And it seems like you've made some good friends. I'm really proud of you, but...." Suck it up, Angel, stand tall and take it like an adult. "...what the hell is with all the Marine shit? What about the Army? You do remember that's the branch I proudly served? You think we're any less deserving of your attention? WHERE'S THE ARMY BABES?!"

Not what I was expecting, kind of took me by surprise there, but okay, I would NEVER want to disappoint Poppy. Never. So some Army humor and some camo babes:

Martha's Vineyard is just around the corner. Unless the whole thing explodes before then.

Biggest Loser is also Biggest Winner

" The New Jersey man who won the $338 million Powerball jackpot owes about $29,000 in child support.

Forty-four-year-old Pedro Quezada on Tuesday claimed a lump-sum payment worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.

A spokesman for Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik says the sheriff's office's warrant squad is attempting to find Quezada to resolve the matter."

Hmmm, let's see, dubious citizenship, deadbeat dad, warrant out for his arrest and just wins largest lottery jackpot by a single winner. Sounds about right, should see him running for office soon as a Democrap.

So what the hell do diamonds say?

Ministry of Silly Walks

Picked up my new glasses today, did this all through Target. The cashier actually talked to me slowly in low tones so as not to spook the "special" person. No-line bifocals are FUN. Sheesh.

I chose "geek chic" frames. What was I thinking? These were the kind of frames that got me de-pantsed and shoved in my locker from 6th grade to graduation. I picked them out in the store with two 20-something kids gushing, "Ooooo, adorkable!" What was I thinking?! I can't see shit without my glasses let alone see how I look in new frames, but I took the leap and embraced my inner geek.
Let's face it shall we? I look at the world through geek-colored glasses; my inner geek giggles at pi jokes; I find books and those who read and hoard them to be amazingly sexy. I am a geek and I'm proud! So here they are: Wiser(Geeky)Angel's new specs. Let the de-pantsing line form to the left, wedgies and wet willies to the right. Thank God I can no longer fit in a locker.
Oh, and to whichever of you ladies who turned me on to the DevaCurl products, thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm sorry I can't remember who it was, but I want you to know it freaking rocks. I love the way my curls look and feel, and it smells like lemon meringue pie!!! How awesome is that?

Just in case you've missed it,

Wirecutter's BACK!

A message from Wirecutter

I've been informed by my Fairy Blogfather, wirecutter, that he's having problems with Blogger blocking his posts today. All of the posts he preset last night posted just fine, but everything since then has been met with an Error message. Apparently, other bloggers are having the same problem and Blogger is aware of it. So, until things are cleared up and wirecutter returns to the net, please be patient and entertain yourselves with the following offerings...

Angel With a Shotgun

Ray sent a tip on a song, Angel With A Shotgun - Nightcore, and I looked it up on youtube. Well...

Wow. My first impression was "Who the fuck gave female chipmunks speed and a recording contract?" Then I read the lyrics, listened again, researched "nightcore" which is not just a band name but also a type of music that takes songs with meaningful lyrics by other artists and switches up the beat, tempo, and adds a bunch of techno bells and whistles. An education in techno music. And I went on a hunt for the original "Angel with a Shotgun", and found The Cab's version...

Still pretty techno for my Southern rock roots, but I really like this song. May have to go in the WiserAngel Workout Mix. Thanks Ray!

Most likely... date a serial killer. No kidding, when they were voting Senior Most Likely categories, Wiserangel got unanimous votes for Most Likely to Date a Serial Killer. Fortunately, the worst I managed were Serial Assholes.

Good morning! Rise and shine!

Now that your hearts are a'pumping
Let's get the brain in gear...
