The gallery has a few more photos from this week.

Cheesecake!

This cheesecake was quite yummy. It has cranberries in the middle of the cream cheese, and a little egg nog in the batter too. Mmm….

pecans

And, I think we have just about enough darned pecans!

Rolls

 
 24 Nov 2004 @ 7:02 AM 

Alex has occasional potluck shindigs at his daycare. This week, of course, was in honor of Thanksgiving. Most of the parents pick up something from the grocery store on the way in that morning. We, of course, don’t do that as a rule (one time we signed up for the potato chips, but just once!). We made cranberry cinnamon rolls in big Christmas tree shaped arrangements. 16 rolls per tree, and little candied cherries for ornaments with icing garland.

I guess they liked them, since we only got 3 back of 31 (we swiped one – phbt!). Now, we need to make more. Nobody else is getting any of this batch! And maybe I’ll take some pictures. Definitely going to take pictures of the cranberry cheesecake I’ll be putting together tonight for tomorrow’s gathering at my father-in-law’s house.

As my old buddy Cory would say, a celebration of excess; gotta love America.

Heard on a Levitra ad, “in the rare case of an erection that lasts for more than four hours…” Um, get a career in porn?

Ok, all you SoCal folks, it’s that time again – time for me to beg for a CD. Starting the 30th of November, you lucky bastards will be able to purchase Kevin and Bean’s Christmastime In The 909 at your local Best Buy stores. I, on the other hand, will have to resort to eBay again if nobody takes pity on me. I’ve got the albums from the past four or five years now, and I’m not gonna break my streak.

Anyone? Anyone?

With the recent What Would Chthulhu Do sale, I’m 40 cents from getting a commission check from Cafepress. Since they raised the minimum from ten bucks to 25, I’ve received no checks. That’s about two years now. I actually got two checks in 2002, for a total of 28 bucks. Not exactly paying for any extravagant vacations, eh?

I’m still surprised that someone bought the WWCD shirt. It was a joke!

Some worry evolution dispute hurts image

bq. “I think the (evolution) theory is atheistic. And it’s all that’s presented. It’s an insult to their intelligence that they’re only taught evolution,” said Marjorie Rogers, the parent who first complained about the biology texts.

Um, yeah. All science is atheistic. That is, it is completely unrelated to religion or theology. That’s not to say it is anti-religion, just unconcerned with it. That’s what the “a” in front of “theistic” means.

Humpty Dumpty Ball Park Hot Dog Potato Chips

What else can I add to that? Potato chips which taste like hot dogs, with relish. Seriously.

OK, I can add something – check out their other flavors: Fries and Gravy and Grilled Cheese and Ketchup

Although the Yahoo version of this story has been edited to remove this quote, other news sources, such as the BBC, have yet to bow to the pressure to make the U.S. military commanders look less nuts.

bq. “The enemy has got a face. He’s called Satan. He lives in Falluja. And we’re going to destroy him.” – Lt Col Gareth Brandl

Oooookay. Satan lives in Fallujah. Suppose he has a nice garden or something?

If you haven’t read Coventry, go buy Revolt in 2100. Tell me that theocratic dystopia is not possible with the way the country is heading.

Barack Obama faces high expectations after resounding Senate victory. I’m sure he does. Why does it sadden me to find out that he’s only the fifth black U.S. Senator in the history of this country?

How many Senators have been elected to first terms in the past 140 years? What a ratio…

Not only does it take Freeservers more than a week to put my information in the domain registry for the domain that the Cancer Society is paying for, but the registrar (register.com) still says Freeservers is in control of the domain and I can’t do anything to administer it.

This is completely unacceptable. As soon as these chuckleheads get things so that I can do something, I’m leaving both Freeservers and Register behind. I can’t believe it can take two weeks to change webhosts. Two days, maybe.

BTW, this is for the San Angelo Relay for Life site, not this one. I never chose Freeservers – I inherited it.
