Breaking Bad

Do you watch Breaking Bad? I think it's one of the best TV shows on the air. The acting is just superb, even if the plot is crazy beyond belief.

I haven't seen the second half of Season 3, or any of Season 4, so please don't drop any spoilers.

Here's a funny clip from YouTube. If you haven't seen the show, I guarantee it's not a comedy.

What's Not to Love?

My wonderful parents also recently bought me this vintage jade-ish green Pyrex bowl in Brighton, Ontario and filled it with local apples. Thank you again! It's a beauty.

Mom & Dad's Pyrex Find for Little Old Me

Last month, my mom emailed me to tell me that she picked me up a Pyrex chip and dip set that was in mint condition. They paid next to nothing for it. Well... here it is!
Balloons! Thank you, thank you thank you! I've got the best parents in the world (and I'd say that even if they didn't hunt for Pyrex).
Maybe I should start using it this weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians. We've got a lot to be thankful for.

Hi Erin,
I did not see an email address for you.... I am a researcher working on Canadian television reality show featuring Steve Santini - escape artist and artifact collector who buys, sells and trades artifacts that have a dark history.
We are looking for people, collectors anyone in Toronto and surrounding area that might have something in their collection that fits this nature. Examples of things already featured on the show include - executioners swords, jack the ripper knife, torture helmet, Houdini's handcuffs etc.
Have you come across anyone in your travels that has an authentic piece of this dark nature?
