What I Want for Christmas...by Randi

Dear Santa...I want a Wake 'n Bacon alarm clock...This is what the linky says, in case you don't know what it is...

The Wake n' Bacon is a collaborative alarm clock design by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini and Hsiao-huh Hsu. It wakes you up with the delicious scent of bacon instead of beeping. How?
A frozen strip of bacon is placed in Wake n' Bacon the night before. Because there is a 10 minute cooking time, the clock is set to go off 10 minutes before the desired waking time. Once the alarm goes off, the clock it sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. We hacked the clock so that the signal is re-routed by a microchip that in responds by sending a signal to a relay that throws the switch to power two halogen lamps that slow-cook the bacon in about 10 minutes.

That's all I want Santa...& world peace...& bully sticks to rain from the sky...I've been a very good pup this year...Love, Randi

Contrary to what some people (my peoples) have been telling...your two front teeth is a perfectly acceptable gift to ask Santa for... I guess there's some silly song about it...my mom/secretary has been singing it to me...I wonder if there is a song for my Wake 'N Bacon alarm clock...?
Anyway...Here is a blooper pic from a photo session for my holiday card...I scrapped the whole set...

Love & Licks,

Hi, Randi!
That clock looks much better than the beeping ones!
I hope you get one!
Merry Christmas!
Kisses and hugs

We'll ask for the bully sticks to rain from the sky too. Maybe it'll happen if we get enough pups to ask. Should we call the weather people and ask them to add it to the weather wheel?

Randi Girl!

First off, your mama is TWISTED! Did she make you get your 2 front teefies bonded? Or, did she make you get hillbilly teef implants? (My girl is going to print that photo of you & hang it in her office ~ you CRACKED her up BIG TIME!)

I personally like your out take photo from your Christmas card photo session. (Was that a real bone?)

As for the Wakin' Bacon, I say sign us all up for that one! Those guys who invented it completely ROCK!

Goober love & Christmas smooches,
