I decided that I am going to learn how to bake this fall/winter. I love cooking, but baking? Not so much. I hate measuring and when I cook the only thing I measure is rice. To me, making a pie is buying a store bought crust and putting some instant pudding and cool whip in it. I made blondies one time and my friend's brother described them as "hard tack with taste." I bought a jelly roll pan, so the first thing I'm going to do is a pumpkin roll. Mmmmm...pumpkin roll... I also want to make a cake from scratch, so I think I'll start with my grandma's recipe for red velvet cake. After that, who knows? Maybe you'll see me on Food Network challenge with the Scott guy who's also on Hell's Kitchen. Mmmmm...Scott...
Have my Office fan readers been watching the webisodes this summer? If you haven't seen them already you can find them here. I'm not totally crazy about them. I think it's because I don't feel that Angela, Oscar, and Kevin can hold an episode by themselves, not even a 4-minute one. They're probably some of my least-favorite secondary characters. If they had Creed, Stanley, and Toby I'd be all about that.
Speaking of the Office, I preordered my season 2 DVD from Amazon the other day! I also ordered Wayne's World and some Cure CDs. I don't usually spend money on myself but I figured I deserved it.
I was watching The Price is Right yesterday and Bob Barker is really getting mean and passive aggressive in his old age! Maybe he always has been and I never noticed. Yesterday there was a college freshman on and when Bob asked him what he wanted to be he said president. Yes, this guy was a complete tool, as are most college freshmen (or college students in general), but Bob was merciless to this guy the whole time, making little jabs about how the president should know things that this guy didn't (I had to give Bob a pass when he made fun of him for saying a Ford costs $78,000. Seriously, dude? If I were going to be on TPIR I would study the prices of everything from Preparation H to RVs). Then, bless his heart, the guy didn't get the wheel the whole way around. A middle-aged woman tripped and Bob kept making snide comments about it. When she went up to spin the wheel he said, "Make sure you don't trip!" Geez, Bob!
Did you see the promos for Celebrity Duets? The end is nigh. I might tune in momentarily to see if Alfonso Ribero or whatever the hell his name is does the Carlton Banks dance.
Now, thanks to that video, I have "It's Not Unusual" in my head and the only words I know are, "It's not unusual to be loved by anyone." Have a great weekend!
