New Years Eve 2009 and into 2010

Did anyone see Dick Clark? That made me sad. But then I kissed into the new year...

What is this you may ask? It's (fake) Butter...

...And a whole jar of brown rice syrup. Chrissy was making Caramel.

On top of that whole jar of brown rice syrup, is a fistfull of brown sugar too. Check out that whisking action.

Pizza made from scratch, and salad. These are the salad days.

This was the new years moment. See Frog Rock (catalina island) in the background?

Then out to shoot off fireworks Billy Marks left in a tour van over 5 years ago. There was so much that I still have some. Yes that is one tiny rocket lifting off back there.

Roman candle fight!

Deanna was scared to light them!

Oh yeah, art.

The caramel was done, and so were the brownies.

Rich and chewy. I called a corner piece.

With some Soy Dream Ice cream on top, who said being vegan was hard?

Lets get closer to that.

Ahhh the annual (bimonthly?) roman candle/fireworks fight to ring in the new year! Makes me all warm and cozy feeling inside. That dessert looks so fucking great. Did you have a hand in that brownie magic Stacy?
Oh man I've watched Dick Clark over the past 2 new years and I don't quite know what to say. I'm rooting for the guy. It takes a big set of balls to get on that screen like a mumbling crypt keeper. I'm not sure if he seemed better or worse this year. I laughed, I cried. I stared at my wife mouth agape. It's like watching that car crash over and over and over...

Deanna's face is awesome in that photo.

what's the fake butter made out of?
Posted By: ryan on January 2nd, 2010 at 03:23PM PST
i was hoping for a minor threat reference behind the salad days link^^

The fake butter is called "Earth Balance," we use that because Margarine is really bad for you.

We can't do anything in Huntington, fireworks have been illegal for ever...

Vegan food looks scary, I'm sticking to chicken nuggets.

Ed, this may seem a bit personal/off topic so I understand if you don't want to answer....but I'm curious, why no kids?
Deanna and you have been together for a long time now; baby's are a natural product of baby making and I'm sure (since you are human and its only natural) that the making is getting done at your pad...so yeah,do you plan on gracing us with a picture perfect impossible busting baby to carry on the Templeton legacy or not?

trivia question #2:


what happened to Satva Leung and where is he now? (there's a prize for this answer, too)
Posted By: vinny on January 3rd, 2010 at 10:43AM PST
Isn't Satva the manager of some wheel team or something? I'm pretty sure he's managing some team or working somewhere.

WALLOWS!

dick clark made me sad too.
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on January 9th, 2010 at 09:57AM PST
Yeah Satva says who stays and who goes over at Ricta. Your library/book collection looks so great. I can't believe those electronic book reader things are catching on, SO dumb.
