here's a list of my favorite inventions of all time...some of my buds who happened to be around when i picked them were incredulous that i didn't chose things like “hammer” so i could build a house (i decided that wasn't so important because a house can be woven from thatch or something) or the ever important “toaster”...so, right or wrong these are my most loved inventions
number 1 on my list...written language
number 2...microsoft’s surface...man, when are they going to release this thing for home use?
number 3...sailing...there's just something about the ocean...i really think i was named aptly...my name means ‘guardian of the sea’
number 4...or this could really be 3b...modern scuba diving...the most sublime activity humans can participate in
number 5...or is it 4?...anyways, what did people do before you could capture an image just as it is? cave painting, really?
number 6...maybe 5...mmm, cars *swoon*
number 7/6...tea...what a happy accident
okay, time to clarify the numbers...this one is definitively 7b...herbs and spices...if you don't appreciate proper seasoning of food, go live in london for a while...you'll understand how important a little seasoning is
number 8...karaoke...though this invention is a double edge sword...as wonderfully fun as karaoke is, the first time you hear some tone deaf alto try to sing celine dion you start to wonder if it's a good idea after all
number 9...tivo...never care when a show comes on again
number 10...the ipad...no, i don't have one yet...but it's the evolution of the e-reader and the tablet pc...i so need one
i had an irresistible urge to put this picture first for no apparent reason
lemon drinks are tasty...i think i may use this adjective too much when talking about lemons!
a lemon emigrant...i assume it's a type of butterfly (not moth) but i'm not an expert
lemon sharks like tropical waters...think caribbean and pacific islands
two very tasty looking lemon desserts
a lemon bar buffet
wtf?!? mutant lemon!
love the evil grin
scary little knit lemon
lemon sniffy stickers
guess this guy wasn't happy with his ipod
never heard of this before...but it looks tasty
