Unamused Faces All Around Me...

Friday, June 25, 2010

Ok.  So my husband is part of this internet car group.  (Yes, I married the computer nerd...).
Anyway, once a year they get together in Maryland on some guys land and have a camp out.  This is no small ordeal.  About 80 some odd people show up to this shin dig every year.

Well, for some reason, my husband is known as "The General of the Unamused Army".  (This is ALL a much more complicated and lengthy story.  And it would no doubt bore you so I'm skipping it.  Just nod your head and follow along with me here for sanity time sake.)  He's known for this mostly because he has been known to randomly send out these stickers:


Really just hang in here with me.....

I am sure that this little face has some deeply important meaning to all these guys... I dunno.  I just know that these stickers are all over my house sometimes.

To cut to the chase.  He asked me to make like 4 dozen of these little babies into cookies.



Sounded like an excuse to use my new edible image system.  :)



So they're all ready to get on a plane in the morning.  I will miss my hubby while he's gone this weekend.  But I hope he has a great time and enjoys his much needed weekend to relax and just have fun.  :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

That is so clever. I'll bet it'll be a hit at the big computer geek gathering! Lisa~

Thanks! Yeah I hope they're a hit too! I REALLY hope that he doesn't return with any un-eaten ones! Haha!

These look great! How do they taste on the cookie? Yours are very vivid compared to other printouts I have seen. What printer do you have and how do you like the ink cartridges?

Thanks in Advance!

Thanks! Well I didn't eat any of them. But my husband did and he said he can't taste any difference than my normal cookies. So that's good. :) Yeah I was surprised by the color too. I had to pop them in the freezer for a few moments to get them to pop off the sheet. (That's another blog post all together...hours of frustration with my printer and those stupid circles...ugh) Maybe the freezer had something to do with the pigment. I'm not sure. I use a Cannon PIXMA 4700 something or other. It was inexpensive (relatively) and I use KopyKake ink. Although I'm not the biggest fan of KopyKake sometimes, I am pretty happy with the inks. I don't do so much printing and I haven't had anything clog or dry out or anything yet. (Knock on wood)

Absolutely ADORABLE. These cookies are very inspiring! :) Thank you for sharing them and your printer information.

I'm going to guess he drives a Subaru and that internet forum is Nasioc... right?

Alison said...

YES! Well sorta...He doesn't drive a subaru but it was a Nasioc related event :)

As a recipient of several of these stickers, and an owner of an :unamused: keycard badge holder, and two sons who love the unamused face, this is the best thing ever!!!

Alison said...

Andrew! My husband is the guy who sends out the stickers! There's literally a box with hundreds of them sitting in my kitchen!
