There were a lot more “couldas” and “shouldas” this weekend than I normally care to admit to, but all in all I had a decent time. Priority #1 should have been planning for Arizona next week (yes, I know I have this pesky half-marathon on Saturday that I couldn’t be any less prepared to run, but Arizona is a bigger fish to fry right now), but I never seem to get around to that.
Perhaps it was because I had declared last Friday “Food Day”, I seemed to do a lot of cooking this weekend.
My Air Conditioning Is Officially Not Working

Here is one of the meals I prepared…
A fantastic breakfast consisting of a fried egg, sausage, and biscuits.
I’ve been Shreked!
I don’t know why all of the noises last night caught me off guard and kept me up a lot last night. I should feel a lot more secure now that I have an ogre protecting the house.

Apparently a friendly person gifted me the toy from her Happy Meal on Saturday. She placed it discreetly in the corner of my carport and is probably waiting to see how long it took for me to see it. The official answer is “Sunday morning.”
Watching TV Pays Off?
It’s cool when I learn something and am able to use the knowledge nearly immediately. On Sunday morning I watched an episode of America’s Test Kitchen and they were making fish and chips. In the episode they mentioned a technique for par-cooking the chips (potatoes) by microwaving them in oil so that they would fry up quicker. I was able to play with this concept and use it for some potatoes I grilled up Sunday night. It was a smashing success.
Survivor Is Over (Again)
A clean sweep for Earl. The outcome was not surprising, even though Survivor tried to change things up by putting three people into the final voting. I still don’t believe that Dre(amz) was “lying” the entire time. Why he thought that he had a chance of winning a million dollars after double-crossing Yau-Man still baffles me.
I only watched about ten minutes of the “Reunion Show”, those have become less and less interesting to me over the years.
I will be hard-pressed to watch another season of Survivor. I think the format has run its course for me.
Heard On The Train
A woman fielded a cellphone call and was speaking about Mother’s Day…
She ain’t no mother.
If she wants to be a mother she better get a baby.
She needs to start something up to get one.
Sometimes it pays off to shed the headphones and listen to those around you.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
