Deadliest Catch

I am a huge fan of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch and I am also a huge fan of crab legs! So we had some friends over Friday night and had some Alaskan crab legs..I cannot imagine the size of this critter when it was alive. Even though we watch them being caught on TV..the size is still unimaginable! But boy were they yummy!
Ok..we had had a few glasses of wine..I won't lie. But Rob had a bright idea...and I think it took 15 minutes to stop laughing..
They finally made it to the grill! The corn can be used as a reference for the size of these things!
Then 'we' got a bug up 'our' ass (meaning I had a bright idea and wouldn't let it go) so 'we' had a DIY Satuday and 'we' replaced the kitchen faucet (meaning I read the directions and handed Jason the flashlight).
I know..I didn't think it was possible for Jason to fit under the sink..he did not find the fact that I was documenting his pain for my blog amusing..but I did! But we went for builders grade standard faucet and broken spray nozzle on the right.
To an upgraded model with the sprayer/nozzle as one unit and the 'sprayer hole' is now a handy-dandy soap dispenser. I am loving that!I was beat after that ..let me tell you. ;-)
Today I got Kingsley who was returned b/c the economy sucks and people are loosing their jobs and if you were already on the edge..you have to give up the things that mean the most sometimes.He is really sweet. I made the mistake of leaning down in the yard and whistling to get him to put his ears up...he is a BIG boy..this didn't end well
He is going to a hopeful forever home soon.
I have been obsessed with the Olympics this year..I think having DVR makes it better b/c I can record all of it and zip through the fluff and uninteresting sports.

I remember the replacing of our kitchen faucet going something like that :) Kingsley seems like a sweet goofy boy. Olympics + DVR = awesome coverage.

will it make him feel better if he knows it was amusing to people across the planet, too?

At least he knows what to do with the tap...last time we had a problem Matt looked it up on the internet....and we still needed to call a plumber!!
