shake and bake


today on my journey of self-discovery - well, actually there was no journey involved, just me sitting at my desk - i learned that the only thing more ridiculous than getting paged because someone else's server login attempt failed is getting paged because your own server login attempt login failed.  it was at this point that the mystery unraveled itself to reveal that i do not have access to the system for which i carry the blackberry.  brief conversations led me to understand that i would not be gaining access to this system which means i am now leading a blackberry-free lifestyle.

and did i mention that rice krispie squares rule the world?  oh, then i should have.  you see, when you have a box of rice krispies and start to thinking "man, i've got 9 boxes of cereal and only one of me.  i need to do something about this" then rice krispie squares are the only logical response to that dilemma.

not that there's anything wrong with having 9 boxes of cereal.  last time i visited my brother i think he had 9 boxes of cheerios, not to mention the other brands.

i've noticed that when you're in public places that people tend to gather together in a single place.  for example:  last night we went to the theatre to go see Ricky Bobby and were among the first ones to arrive.  within a few minutes, despite the theatre which seats an estimated 300 people being almost entirely empty, a group of idjits comes in and sits in the seats directly behind us.

and by the way, if you haven't seen Ricky Bobby yet you probably should.  i don't think it will get the Academy Award for best writing but it is laugh-out-loud funny.  i was more than happy to spend money at the theatre to see that one, and will likely shell out more cash when it comes out on DVD.  absolutely golden performances from Will Ferrell, John Reilly, Michael Clarke Duncan and the guy who played Commissioner Gordon in Batman.  i will not ruin any of the film for anyone who hasn't seen it, but i will say that one of the many moments at which i laughed out loud was finding out what Ricky Bobby's children's names were.  go ahead and see it.  it awesomes.

    Crisp Rice Squares are the only dessert my boyfriend can make.

    I particularly enjoyed the prayers to little baby jesus in his tiny golden diaper myself.

    Oh yes and I won't spoil what the boys names are, but I will say its not "Doctor Quinn" and "Medicine Woman"

    BTW i'm a big fan of your "About" section.
