that's right. while the combination of jodi's creativity and my brains has made for fantastic results in the past.... this monday they didn't do so well. We built what must be the worst, crappiest gingerbread house ever. I, of course as a Materials Engineer blame it on the poor building materials. You see, there's very little structural integrity to graham crackers and the gooey frosting "cement" couldn't stick anything! Besides, Jodi, with the graham cracking splitting division, kept handing me broken graham crackers. Excuses... excuses... It went from being the pentagon, to a beast house, to a corpse face (complete with a worm crawling out the eye) and finally to the sad state that it's currently in.
As crappy as it was, it does happen to bear an uncanny resemblance to the muppet Beaker. So I count it a success.
Is that a beach made out of purple nerds you ask? yes. courtesy of jodi's imagination. Is that orange hair actually a shaved carrot you ask? yes. courtesy of our fridge's vegetable drawer.
