All hail the Shat

So it was William Shatner's birthday the other day -- happy birthday, Shat -- and it got me to thinking. I know he's written some books about his days on Star Trek, but has he written a full autobiography?

If not, I've got the perfect title:

Are you buy-curious?

UPDATE: Dumbass me fixed the mistyped link to my own store.

In case you haven't checked out the official Siftin' store yet (for shame), here's a look at one of the items you'll find there that doesn't have my face on it (no snide comments, please).

Aside from the thong with my face on it, I'd say this is the item that's getting the most interest from viewers.

Remember, this is your chance to support puerile humor.

Wow, looks like a ho lot of programming lately. Is this a cooking show?

Don't harsh my mallow...

Honest to God, sometimes I just don't get me. Even after 32 years, I baffle myself sometimes.

I blame "Unwrapped." They featured the Valomilk, which is a chocolate and marshmallow confection from heaven. If you haven't had one, then for criminy sakes, buy some online. They're messy as all hell, but I love them.

So stupid me decides that some fresh marshmallow is just what the doctor ordered. After checking the Internet, I found a recipe. But I didn't have a few ingredients.

$21.63 and a trip to yon grocery store later, I had all I needed (plus some chips and fruit). But it would take too long to make them for me to start that night.

So that meant today when I got home from work. With supervision from my son, I got to work. At no time while I was mixing everything did I think it was going to work.

But damned if I didn't end up making marshmallows. They didn't look like the uniform kind you get at the store, but not bad for a first try, I'd say. I even coated a few in granulated sugar instead of the powdered sugar/corn starch mix. I tried one, and it was like biting into an impossibly fresh Marshmallow Peep.

No Valomilk, but still pretty tasty. Now that I am a marshmallow-making madman, I might try approximating a Valomilk. This may end up with my kitchen looking like the aftermath of the Ghostbusters vs. Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man battle, but I have to try in the name of science.
