2: Me Poem I am Yeti, Capri-Sun, Snowglobes. I like shredding the gnar and stroking the fur of my cat on a warm summer night. Love, joy, and truth are important to me. I find satisfaction in sowing the seeds of love in my serenity garden. I can sometimes attack in grumpy rage but I am always apologetic afterwards. I love preventing forest fires. I hate trespassing evil spirits. I thoroughly enjoy swashbuckling. This is me. I am.

4: The Effects of Work on Family and Family on Work In society today most people have to make a choice whether they think family or work is most important to them. This choice is what determines if they let their work affect their family-life, or if they let their family affect their work-life. Both aspects of one's life often spill over into the other. If someone has to go on a long business trip than they might not see their family for a long time. If someone has to make multiple business trips for their job then this could put a strain on their family life. Of course, their is also the monetary aspect to consider. If someone isn't making enough money in their job to support their family then their family-life could be put in serious jeopardy. Also, if someone plans on starting a family, then they are more likely to choose a stable, well-paying job in order to have a family-life with the least possible turbulence.
6: Creepy Peepers Ingredients 3.4-ounce box vanilla pudding mix Jelly beans LifeSavers Gummies Plastic eggs 2 empty egg cartons Instructions Prepare the pudding according to the package directions. For each eye, fit a jelly bean into the center of a LifeSavers Gummies candy and place it in a plastic egg half. Fill the egg cup with the pudding, then place the egg halves in an egg carton in the freezer until they're firm (about 3 hours). Remove the egg halves from the freezer and let them sit at room temperature for about 3 to 5 minutes. With the back of a fork, gently press down on the edge of the pudding, rolling the frozen ball out of the egg cup. If you're not serving them right away, place the eyes in a freezer-safe dish in the freezer until you're ready.
7: The Story This recipe originated when my cousin Benjie was playing in the playground with his friends, and his eye fell out. The doctors could not offer any explanation as to why his eye fell out and to this day we still have no idea why it happened. Two days after the mysterious accident, my family and I visited Benjie in the hospital and brought with us several of the Creepy Peepers described in this recipe. We thought it would be a humorous way to make light of Benjie's current predicament. Benjie was not amused by the Peepers and actually started crying because they reminded him of why he was in the hospital in the first place, but we still enjoyed these delicious snacks as he mourned his missing eye! | Benjie misses his eye...

11: The Story This is a simple recipe that has been part of my family for generations. It comes from my mother's side of the family, so it probably originated in Ireland. The story behind it is obviously hundreds of years old and probably greatly exaggerated and altered since its original inception, but here it is anyway. According to the story there was once a great wizard (possibly my distant ancestor) who lived high on the hillside away from all civilization. Once the foolish town drunk began to mock the wizard, claiming that he was just an old fool with no real magical talent. The wizard promptly appeared out of thin air and turned the man into a cake. Everyone present proceeded to eat the cake that was once their good friend. This story may seem to be promoting some bizarre form of cannibalism, but I assure you that the current ingredients contain nothing that is or ever was human.
12: Shrimp Alfredo Ingredients: 1 cup milk cup water 2 tablespoons margarine 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning teaspoon black pepper 1 pound shrimp, cooked and peeled 6 ounces fettuccine Parmesan cheese Alfredo Sauce 4 tablespoons butter 2 cups whipping cream 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated Directions: Make the sauce: melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat.
