Photo of the day, #267

Hint: it's heavy for its size
I had quite the scare last night. My oven caught on fire! I was baking pie when all of a sudden, a fire started. This has never happen to me before. I tried a new pie recipe and I guess it had too much grease in it.  I was thisclose to calling the firemen, when the fire put itself out. I was a bit traumatized and I think I will take a break from baking. And in case this ever happens to you, NEVER EVER pour water over a grease fire. It will make things worse. You are supposed to pour baking soda on it or put it lid on it. 


Anyways back to today's thingamajig. It's not a household item. This isn't even something I own. These are found outside and are made to last. Some of them are even thousands of years old. And they are usually custom made. They vary in size, shape and colour. What is it?

  11. Is that a tombstone?

    Also, whattt really? I would've freaked out. Is your oven okay?! And baking soda I wouldn't thought of, the lid makes more sense to me than water because of lack of oxygen AND of mess. But still, I thought you -wanted- an excuse to call the uh.. "sexy firemen" over.

  16. obviously that's some type of stone, but more specifically I'm not sure. A monument perhaps.
