I didn't know Kim drove a minivan!
I can't see the pic.Holli
Me neither.Probably not a bad thing.
i cant see the pic either. AND i'm still hung up on the concept of a "groom's cake."have any west coasters or northerners ever heard of this? i'm willing to admit that its common everywhere and i'm just not observant. but i think it might just be a southern thing.
Can you see it now?
Is that Justin Timberlake, Memphis-area native that the plate refers to? My old eyes don't work that well.Holli
Hey Palmer, do a google image search on "groom's cakes" and you'll get some doozies including a Guiness can cake, a poker chip cake, a golf course cake (pg. 2), an Auburn University cake (pg. 2) and many, many more.Holli
I've not heard of a Groom's Cake either.I want one like THIS.
Come on down to the Blogspot for Jizz Wednesdays!
Thanks for the clarification on the plate GW.Here's another good cake.Holli
That's class.I never heard of this groom cake thing either. Back in my day, you had one cake, it tasted like lemon, and you liked it./I got married last year.
Our wedding cake was white with raspberry filling (I think) and it was decorated with flowers, not a bride and groom. The groom's cake was German chocolate and I think also had flowers. I don't remember. In Jan. it will be 18 years. I had to go to 3 weddings this summer in Memphis and every one had Bride and Groom's cakes. One groom's cake had a guitar. The others were normal.Where is Steph for backup when I need her?Holli
And here's another recent Southern wedding trend for weddings that involve children, a seperate table of kids food like chicken fingers with honey mustard and Goldfish crackers.Holli
holli, "recent Southern wedding trend for weddings that involve children?"i thought we were trying to avoid ugly stereotypes.
Well, it is still the South. Holli
When I read that, I thought for a moment that I could hear the faint strains of 'Dueling Banjos' in the background.
by the way, now that the picture works, who the hell would have an "I (heart) JISS" license plate? and what would their groom cake be shaped like?yeesh... maybe its Juliet's plate since she's a fertility doctor?
If you like Stephen Colbert check out yesterday's (10/9) Fresh Air. You can download it from iTunes or stream it at NPR.org.Holli
It is amusing that the wedding cake will be chocolate.Also, I've been to many weddings where they have a groom's cake. The last one I saw was one in the shape of a baseball glove with ball and all. But then again, I'm a southerner so maybe it is only done here./does anyone else feel weird about talking about both cakes and jizz at the same time?
Not if it's a jizzcake.
1. jizzcake 1) A spineless person, perhaps known for sucking dick. See also, bitchcake.2) Someone who takes it in the butt or mouth, and hence becomes a cake of jizz.3) Paris Hilton.Note: May be followed by the phrases McGee, McCoy, or Philips to make it a nickname for the person in question."Hey, bitchcake. You're a jizzcake."
I prefer McGillicutty."Shut the hell up, Jizzcake McGillicutty!"
Sorry, Holli. I've been busy saving lives. Not really. 12 years ago we had the multi-tiered, white bride's cake and a chocolate groom's cake. My mom went to her nephew's daughter's wedding in Georgia last year and took pictures of the red velvet armadillo groom's cake. I have the pictures at home. Will post later. They also had a blue grass band. I don't know what I was doing that could have been more important that I couldn't attend. Oh yeah, the bride and groom left in a Cinderella carriage.
PS Stephen Colbert is hot.
i think you're all just making up this grooms cake thing. :p
Those with the poor eyesight may wish to gaze upon the pic at full size to help with the license plate recognition.
I suck at this!JISS
So a groom's cake is basically a little kid's birthday cake that accompanies the regular wedding cake. Classy.
Seems like everyone here is married. Who isn't married?
I'm not married, thank goodness! ;)/i don't think a husband would approve of my party lifestyle.
Here is the baseball groom's cake I talked about.BASEBALL GROOM'S CAKE
First of all welcome Kirk Hammett - could we get a little "Enter Sandman" for the blogspot? ;)I've seen a few grooms cakes in my time doing wedding videos around these parts - so it does exist outside the south (but not common in my experience).I think our wedding cake actually was 4 kinds - of which I only remember banana & poppyseed/raspberry (and there must have been chocolate in there somewhere too). (sigh) 11 years goes by doesn't it?
nice to know it's not a "southern thing". but then again, those people you've seen with groom's cakes might originally be southerners. maybe now it'll be become a more popular thing. now that's it's out in the open and we all know about it.
Jada, groom's cakes didn't start out as a kid's birthday party cake, but it has definitely gone that route. They've been around as long as I can remember, like even before I was 10. As a choco-holic I've always liked the groom's cake better than the bride's cake which can often be dry with too sweet icing.Our niece got married to a guy from Mississippi last year and his cake had a little hunter doll shooting a deer on it and the icing was camoflauge colored. To make the reception even more homey, all the people from Mississippi changed into shorts before the reception began. Yes, it was classy.Holli
It may not be classy but it sounds comfortable...
Comfortable for them, but they forgot to send our family the memo that said shorts at the reception was appropriate attire. Of course my 6 year old was better dressed than most people at the wedding so I am being a snob.Holli
After that description, Holli, I'm glad Big Ed didn't care to have any input on our wedding.Groom's Cake History
Did everyone change into denim cut-off shorts? Imagine, a whole party of never-nudes!
Putting a slice of grooms cake under your pillow to dream of future husbands??? If you put cake under your pillow the only thing you'll be dreaming about is finding a stain remover that will get cake off of your pillowcase.
lmao, jada, you're killing me!that would be priceless, a tobias-themed wedding. they're all painted blue with cut-offs on.
Sounds like the groom's cake comes from the machinations of the decorative cake-industrial complex.
new bionica jones tonight.will the show get any better? will it incorporate two magic twins who look nothing alike? will they just keep on running around and freaking out occasionally almost killing someone?will bionica enjoy a chocolatey grooms cake?
Nice AD reference jada.I'm interested to see where Pushing Daisies goes tonight. Think I'll pick up some pie to have with it. This time of year I guess it should be apple or pumpkin. Pie and spiked coffee maybe.Holli
I'll be watching, Pushing Daisies. I've given up on Bionica Jones. Tonight's schedule for me:Pushing Daisies/Top ModelGossip GirlDirty Sexy Money
Sounds like a good idea, Holli. I think I'll do the same. I'll eat the pie before watching Top Model, so I don't feel guilty as I'm eating pie and watching skinny girls run around. :)
As a former military spouse who has a family member currently in Iraq and friends serving in the military as well, I still found this funny. If anyone's offended, I'll remove it though.Holli
OK kirk - I don't know guitar tabs well enough to know if that's accurate or BS, but props for the response - lol!I say you're either Palmer or Ghost
not i. i've got so little rhythm that i couldn't even copy and paste musical notes.
How dare you say my show sucks? It's the coolest. So what if there isn't a point to any of it?
I wonder if LOST realized what trouble they could have been in had Nikki had an accident.Holli
yeah, bionica jones isn't the greatest show in the world. but i've got a free bionica jones t-shirt. and i saw her at two comic-con panels. so, bionica's my homegirl.but, yeah, the show's not so fantastic yet. but with certain shows not around until februaryish, and others not as interesting as we'd hoped, i'll watch Bionica Jones (live or DVRed) for at least a bit longer.
Forgive for possibly stating the obvious here about this license plate, but I think the owner of that mini van was angling for a crafty, phonetic way to say "I love Jesus" If you look at it this way: J=Je, IS=is, S=s, then sound it out, Je - iz - ess. Say it real fast and it becomes Jesus.Anyway, flog my with Duh comments all you want. It's halirious nonetheless.
I don't know mattastic, but that's a good theory. I'm not even gonna pretend to know what it says or what it means. lol.
Happy Birthday, Jordan! I know we've been celebrating you at the boards, but I figured we should mention it here too.so...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Should this be the official candy of Jizz Island?Holli
I think anything with the word 'balls' should be the candy for JizzIsland. Although, 'Lava Balls', is especially fitting.
Well Sheee-at jordan - totally didn't realize it was your birthday today (well...yesterday now). Happy good one duder!
Andrew, you probably already know this but Philly gets Darjeeling tomorrow. I have to wait 2 more weeks. Jordan gets it tomorrow.http://content.foxsearchlight.com/inside/node/2268
Today's Urban Dictionary Word of the Day:October 11, 2007: Leave Britney AloneAn exclamation made when your friends or family are teasing you to a point where you can't handle it anymore and a hissy fit is in order. Derived from a YouTube user's famed outburst following Britney's lackluster performance at the 2007 VMA's.Sarah: 'OMG Susan, I can't believe you are wearing the same skirt as yesterday. Oh, and by the way, EVERYONE knows what you did with Kevin on the weekend. Plus you look a little fat, are you retaining water?'Susan: 'LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!'
Anyone gotten a phone call from Optimus Prime?Holli
holli, you are awesome.but optimus is too polite to call anyone before 8 am their time so i'll have to wait an hour before harassing any west coasters.
That is so cool.Trev, I heard a rumor that said the "Leave Britney Alone" guy is getting his own tv show.
Oh, hey, kablamo.
that'll do, trevor. that'll do.
Thanks Steph for the heads up. I think I'll be seeing that this weekend at some point.And thanks for the kind words people. I always thought turning 40 would be scary. Not so bad really.And I just watched last night's Pushing Daisies. I am really liking this show. I hope it sticks around for a bit.
Best Origami Ever.Except that it looks near impossible to do. And finding a piece of paper that's green on one side and brown on the other can't be easy. But still, pretty cool...
-Happily Birthdate Jordan!-Stephanie, thanks for the heads up on Darjeeling opening in Philly. Unfortunately Philly is on the other coast of the state, so i'm going to have to wait until Oct. 26th. i'm hearing a lot of promising reviews though, so i'm dropping any reservations i had.-need to waste an afternoon? Paper Airplane Simulation- Holli's Lost blog had a question on Cindy. i can't decide if i want her to be evil or a victim. i just want more of her :P- Into season 3 of The Shield now. It's a high quality cop show so far, but hasn't really lived up to comparisons to "the Wire" just yet. i'm sure when i get to Forest Whitaker things will kick up a notch.- he may be very sexy or even cutebut he looks like a sucker in a blue and red suiti said you need a man who's got finesseand his whole name across his chesthe may be able to fly all through the nightbut can he rock a party til the early lighthe cant satisfy you with his little wormbut i can bust you out with my super sperm
That looks awesome, Trevor. Difficulty lever: impossible. lol.
Whoa, that airplane sinulation is awesome. I made it 63 meters, out the window, over the roof, and across the playground.
Just to add to the wedding topic:No, I'm not, and when I was in secondary school learning Mandarin, my teacher Carol (she was new and didn't know we weren't supposed to be so casual with her), told us about the wedding practices of Chinese families. So this may not apply to the whole population, but pretty much, on the wedding night aka sexy time, not only does the rest of the family listen by the door to hear the marriage being consumated, with the advancement of technology, they put a tape recorder underneath the bed as well!We, the students, were both horrified, and trying not to laugh at the same time, while good ol' Carol just thought about how nice it was to share with us.
So very odd that this was three days before my actual wedding and I didn't mention it even when someone asked about who was married or not.
