I had all sorts of things planned for today.  

I was going to pay bills.

I was going to do laundry.

I was going to buy a shipping box to send back a pair of shoes I had ordered that turned out to feel as if they were sewn with barbed wire.

I was going to go grocery shopping.  

I was going to, once again, attempt to put my office in a semblance of order.

Have I done any of these things?

That would be No.

Do you want to know what I HAVE accomplished today?

Prepare to be amazed.

Or perhaps stupefied.



One day, while perusing Pinterest, which is something that can keep me occupied for HOURS, I saw a pin about what happens when you microwave a bar of Ivory Soap and I said to myself, "Well, why the hell WOULDN'T you microwave a bar of Ivory Soap?"

So a couple of weeks ago, I purchased said bar of Ivory Soap and stuck it in my laundry cabinet and promptly forgot about it.

Until today.

I don't know what reminded me but I said to Thing 2, "Hey, you wanna see what happens when you microwave a bar of Ivory Soap?"

And Thing 2, being quite the Adventurous Type, said, "Sure, why not?"

So we unwrapped the bar of Ivory Soap (no, I am not being paid for each time I use the words, "Ivory Soap" in this post), popped it in the oven and set it for 4 minutes.

And then we stood in front of the door and absorbed some radiation while staring through the window-thingy and waited to be amazed and/or stupefied.


Check it out:
 It was like this fluffy cloud of...stuff.  It was light and airy and when you attempted to pick it up, it just kind of crumbled and got EVERYWHERE!!!

So what I did was just crumble it all up and then scooped it all into a jar.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, perhaps use it to make another batch of my homemade laundry soap, perhaps stick it out in the boys bathroom so they can wash their hands, who knows.

Microwaving soap for shits and giggles.  

Do I know how to have a good time or what?
