Redecorating, Buffy, cooking & court

OK COol thing happening as of late. I went out with Keen and got soused while playing pool last weekend. That was fun :-D. We also moved the house around quite a bit … we made our “central command” computer area, an honest-to-God dining room, and a full-blown theater/tv area with all the hottest accroutements like dolby digital everything, surround sound with a wicked woofer, 100+ inches of TV goodness, you know, total hotness. Emily & Amanda came over last night and we watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Talk about mind numbing. Holy cow that show is horrible. It’s beyond horrible. It’s so soul-stiflingly bad that I can’t describe it. And so we watched it. For like 3 1/2 hours. You can basically turn off your brain while watching it; the characters and the plots are all completely seethrough, the acting and the dialogue is awful to the max. Man. At least we had a good time heckling it. I also found out how – and how not – to make stovetop popcorn. After three batches (and a missed episode of Buffy) I finally got it down pat. I then proceeded to throw the huge bowl of popcorn on the floor, ruining that batch. So yea, four big bowls of popcorn in the trashcan later, I can now claim to be able to make stovetop popcorn. I made hashbrowns, eggs, sausage and toast for breakfast today. It was great. The hashbrowns weren’t normal ForemanGrill style hashbrowns, but real life made in a pan with butter and garlic salt yummy ones. I found that if they’re not frozen when you put them in the pan, they actually brown how one would expect them to. I have court tomorrow morning at 8:30am. I’m not looking forward to it in the slightest … I have to wake up at like 7am!! At least I get to wear a suit — I’ll definitely update with the results. [b]Update![/b] – So I went to court today in a suit, because that’s what you do when you’re trying to get off. I talked to the nice prosecutor, Catherine, put some shmooze down and had my 4-point, $145 fine/fees ticket reduced to a 0-point, $75 offense, on the provision that I take a 2hr, $25 driving class within 90 days. Wow, talk about getting off. From what I understand, it won’t even go on my record – which means that I can maintain my sparkling clean license status. Yay for working the system!

How to make gourmet stove-top popcorn: 1. large pot 2. pour in just enough popcorn kernels to cover the bottom of the pot 3. use virgin olive oil and pour on top of popcorn kernels to coat entire bottom within 1/8th" (step 2 & 3 can be reversed). 4. Drop in 1/2 to 1 cup country-crock spread (or equivalent) depending on taste and calorie intake 5. 1 tablespoon Chulupa hot sauce or 1 teaspoon tabasco sauce 6. Set burner to high and gentlely shake pot until most kernels are popped, you may have to dump contents once or twice depending on the size of the pot. 7. add salt to taste (personally I don’t add any). Adding 1/4 cup of sugar instead of hot sauce gives it a carmel like coating

I hate buffy too, but this leads me to a quick point. I figured out why no one likes my writing. I hate it when horrible things happen to my characters. But since that’s what drives the plot, I’m kinda screwed. That’s also why I hate buffy. Everything is okay in an hour, and what ever isn’t is contrived and superfluous. I’m damned. Oh well… I can drive the bus at least…

I have it on good authority that he was waiting a month just to make you heathens cry. Personally I think it is because I cause most of the grief in Randalls life, and he can’t put it here where I can read it and remain tactful 🙂
