My kids were watching reruns of reruns on Family Channel yesterday afternoon, and during one of the absurdly long commercial breaks I caught a glimpse of Katy Perry (pop star cutie) in a dazzling heart-adorned dress (see below). As I was trying to track it down through Google, I came across this video of Christina Aguilera’s “Bionic Medley” performance at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.

At 3:23 the hearts begin. And at 4:03ish, keep a close eye on Cristina Aguilera’s crotch. Yup…her crotch. Don’t you just ♥ pop stars?

Some yummy looking cupcakes…and (not surprisingly) plenty of hearts!

LE ZOE MUSINGS

Cupcakes has been so trendy for many yrs now and the craze is still going strong. Nowadays, you’ll find them more and more at weddings in place of wedding cakes. I remember for my wedding of 500+ guests, we actually forgot to cut our cake (until the VERY end) and didn’t even get a chance to serve it! I guess we were having way too much fun!

Imagine, having a cake big enough to feed 500+ guests and having to bring the ENTIRE thing home! Would it have been better to serve cupcakes instead and have the guests help stuff themselves w/ as many as they can?

No cutting, no serving, no mess, and certainly no overlooking to serve them!

So if you are one of those brides who wouldn’t mind forgoing your traditional wedding cake for these tiny, beautiful yummy morsels, here’s a cupcake feast for your eyes. Some…

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

From Darren L. – a prolific heart-spotter and regular contributor to My Heart-Shaped World:

Darn you and your blog! Now, at every turn, and in every shop and restaurant, there are hearts jumping out at me.

I knew that these – spotted last month in a local artisan store in the amazing Hawthorne district of Portland – would lend themselves to some clever word play…

(Thank you, Darren, for another awesome heart-shaped surprise. I hope the word play doesn’t disappoint.)

A pair of horseshoe hearts from one of our regular heart-spotters, Sylvia W.:

Horseshoes have long been considered a symbol of good luck. So quadruple the luck factor with two hearts made with two horseshoes apiece. Lovely!

A Prehistoric Heart

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

From Tony B.:

Prehistoric rock beside the Englishman River. Does the heart shape of the lower hole fit your criteria regarding “heart shapes in our world”?

{Editor’s note: If it’s heart-shaped and seems like it belongs in My Heart-Shaped World, yes…it absolutely fits the criteria!}

Waffles are scary. So are pancakes, omelettes, skillets, scrambles…pretty much anything you’d find on a Denny’s breakfast menu. Except bacon. Bacon is always comforting.

Maybe scary is the wrong word. Alarming? No…disconcerting. Yes, that’s the word for it. Waffles are disconcerting.

It’s not them. It’s me. When it comes to breakfast, I’m a creature of habit with a very low threshold for unpredictability. My daily bowl of granola is safe and reliable; but with waffles and omelettes and the like, there’s just so much that can go wrong. A soggy waffle or a watery omelette or a pancake uncooked in the middle can derail your entire day. Who needs that?

So on Sunday, when my wife got a call from her cousin inviting us to drop by for waffles, I panicked. “Tell them we’re contagious with H1N1,” I whisper-shouted into her un-telephoned ear. (Sundays are simply too precious to ruin with the chaos of breakfast run riot!) But too late: “We’ll be there shortly,” she said. The horror, I thought in a way I think even Marlon Brando would have nodded approvingly at. The horror…

My worst fears have a habit of hardly ever materializing, and Sunday’s wafflefest was no exception. The waffles weren’t only tasty and unsoggy, they were heart-shaped…as if our hosts, Claire and Joe, somehow knew they’d need to put my own tremulous heart at ease. Still, never was anything more appreciated than my Monday bowl of granola. You faithful, unwavering, calorie-laden clusters of candied oats…I love you.
