Death Wish Coffee – Highly-caffeinated “extreme” coffee.

    I was way way way into dinosaurs as a kid, and had a dinosaur-themed party when I turned 6 or 7. My cake (which was store-bought, a REALLY BIG DEAL) had a plastic Godzilla on top of it. I think I would have preferred the fossils. And if you made them out of marzipan or something, they would be edible!

    Brilliant.

    I love that “hologram” idea for ghosts. Seems like you could do others, like the Haunted Mansion ghosts and such. Of course, it would require placement of many LCD projectors around one’s yard…

    And then combine it with the “human-size ghosts”!
