Moon Sand

Moon Sand has got to be one of the coolest new toys out there.
I had never even heard of the stuff until my Nephew- who we will call Monkey Boy because it amuses me- asked for some for Christmas (well, he asked for a lot of things. I actually believe he thinks my name is Auntie Iwant)

Moon Sand is kinda like Playdough except it never gets hard and it looks and feels like play sand. You can mold it using pretty much anything (and they have about 9 bizillion mold sets out. We went old school and used stuff from around the house). In a day and age where there is a video game or web site to do anything you could possibly want or imagine it was a really simple and basic toy, I think that's what I liked about it. It was just fun and all you had to do was open the package and go.

And to Monkey Boy's delight Auntie Iwant has now decided we need more sand...

Oh Please Don't Let This Show Up As A Theme Ingredient On Iron Chef

Yes, my friends that is a real book. And no the author is not joking.
I read about Natural Harvest on Slashfood (read they're post HERE) and honestly I thought it was supposed to be tongue in check. However, the author has his own blog (HERE)and seems pretty serious about it.

I guess my question is, just how bored do you have to be to even come up with this idea?
I have never been making a batch of cookies and thought to myself "gee, these could really use some seman!"

Believe me I get the whole "waste not, want not" philosphy. I am just not sure it applies in this case.
