My 8 year old Gray decided he may not like corn anymore since "Princess Fiona" doesn't. and Blissful, you got a "bro fist' for the picture.

(he came over here one day when I was typing and saw PF's name and he was smitten) He just now saw the whole corn thing!

It took me the longest time to figure out 'bro fist'......but I get it now.
This is for Gray.

Hooray, I'm on Gray's top ten list of his mom's dorky food friends!
Who thought I could be so famous? Not me!

This is gonna be fun...

The apartment management has notified us that our electricity will be off from 8a Ė 5p on Monday.

Itís a good thing Iím shopping tomorrow. Iíll pick up some French bread and make cold cut sandwiches, coleslaw and cottage cheese.

I can crank up the refrigerator ahead of time to keep things colder longer.

Itís a good thing Iíve got a bunch of books to read.

THAT sounds like a day of vacation, no buzzing noises from appliances running, no door bells, no phone ringing (?), no tv blaring, no radio clocks making noise. Put out a blanket on the floor, light a candle, open the windows and have a picnic!

I'm going to have a picnic. If I get too hot, I'll just jump into the shower and cool off.

The Mustard Seed - Fresh green beans (wokked in soy glaze, garlic and chili paste) and Chicken Osaka (lemon and mustard sauce) with rice and Asian Slaw. I would order it every day if I could afford it...$17.90 a day. But worth it once a month.

How sweet...good thing he is too young for me Just tell him girl Ogres don't like corn because it gets stuck in their teeth and makes our skin turn yellow instead of the nice shade of green.
