We've been busy boys

Sheesh but it's dark now in the morning. I'm not so sure I like it. What was wrong with waiting until the end of the month to do this? I wonder what lobby was behind this decision because I don't think energy is being saved. The first thing I did this morning was put up the heat.

Yesterday, we culled three giant trash bags of garments from our closet. There were items from before we moved to Canada and a belt that I got 21 years ago. It all looks so clean and organized now and we have almost zero summer clothes so clothes shopping will be in the offing. (Even though I loathe shopping for clothes.) Since we booked a cruise to the Bahamas yesterday, we will certainly need some summer wear. Did I say we booked a cruise? Yes, yes I did. I cut out this ad from the paper this week advertising a trip to New York with an 8 night cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. It seemed terribly cheap at $1100 Canadian everything included, taxes, round trip transportation and more. We're going with Serge's mom and her boyfriend. $1100 Canadian is about $850 US today. What a deal! Now I'm stressing a bit about how I've got to reschedule 9 classes that I was supposed to teach at that time. I'm sure the students will understand.

Can I just say how delighted and amused I was by the comments on the previous post? Making others gag is one of the funniest things to me. That video that I took down actually made me gag, and I just wanted to share that with you. Those that expressed disappointment at having missed the video were sent the file by email. I love to spread the joy. And to those who think that video was bad, I've got another that puts that to shame, because it's totally real. I'm not convinced the one I posted was real, nor for that matter, two girls one cup. I think they blasted themselves clean with a power enema and then shoved some brownie batter up there. Do you really think they're eating poo? I don't. I'm not posting or sending the REAL poo video, as it's just too horrific and those that I have shown have been scarred for life. Consider yourself lucky.

Hungry? Here's another shot of din-din. Shake and bake chicken thighs, rice and salad. Twas delicious. We are digging on the new Uncle Ben's rice pouches. Two minutes in the microwave and it's perfectly cooked. Happy daylight savings Sunday!

I knew better than to click on that video. Gah. Your description was horrific enough, thank you.

If you ever return to cooking raw rice, here's something I learned from our chef at work: saute the raw rice in butter, lightly browning it to get a toasty flavor; then boil it in chicken stock instead of water. Delicious with white or brown rice!

Yeah, but TONIGHT it will be light longer! And the "new" Uncle Ben's rice? It's been here for several years, I think.....

I love a cleaned out closet! I try to do mine every season, just to get rid of stuff.

I love that you loved grossing everyone out. You are twisted and that's my favorite thing about you!

I have never been convinced by the logic of daylight savings time.

The "Time Warp" should have been left in Rocky Horror, in my opinion. I feel temporally displaced for at least a week every time we do it.

I enjoyed the Pooping video very much. It was delightfully disgusting. Only our Tornwordo would have the chutzpah to show it.
Shake and Bake, Minute rice from the Microwave? What's your rush? It does look good though. ed

I know your love of others gagging... it's the scarring for life I could do without. I throw up a little in my mouth just from a verbal description, let alone a visual aid.

My big thing though? Why? Everyone to his own I suppose, but wow, how fucked up does one have to be before actually thinking that might be a good idea?

I saw a lot of the reaction videos to "2 Girls 1 Cup". So I had to go and look.

Didn't even get a disgusted look on my face. Why? I've seen seriously gross stuff in my life. That video was nothing compared to what I've seen. Ever seen a human body that's liquefied better yet the smell of a liquefying human body.

All part of the short time I worked at the AG's office.

I'll have to give those rice packets a whirl. Now that I've "semi" recovered from your video, I might be able to eat again.

Hey, so you'll be in NYC? For at least a night? I don't read French, so I couldn't make out the details. I'd love to meet you guys for a drink or coffee, if your time allows.
