What is your favorite household object?

I think I want to rephrase that question a bit. What is your favorite item in your house? Something you just love to use or look at or whatever. It doesn't matter, just wanted to get you thinking AND I wanted to tell you what mine is. :) My shower radio. I love it! I got it for christmas '06 from the 'rents and they really hit one out of the park with this cheap gift (and I do not mean "cheap" in a bad at all). I find showers to be a necessary chore. They are very important for good hygiene but they can be so boring, tedious and routine. I just do not (for the most part) look forward to them. However, since I recieved this little bit of technology goodness my showers have become something that I actually look forward to. :)
There might be a few people out there that are appauled at me right now...hmmm...oh well. I don't apologize for my weirdness, just that ask you to embrase it and share your weirdness with me.

Today, May 8th, is National Shrimp Day. I wouldn't call my self a huge shrimp fan, but once in awhile it sounds good. If they are done right they can be quite tasty. Does anyone have any recipe recomendations for shrimp? I found this great looking recipe at Cooking Light that combines shrimp with asparagus, what a great way to celebrate today and the month of May. :)

Some of you may know this, but Tab can take incredibly loooooong showers. So, they must not be too tedious for her.

no shrimp recipes today. But thanks for letting me embrace your appallingness. It just makes me feel better to know you have a shower radio.
