We have been in this house since 1988. I am cleaning out the 2 junk drawers in the kitchen. I found Domino's pizza coupons which expired in 1996 and matches from restaurants which are long out of business, all the scissors I thought I lost, enough chopsticks to stock a small restaurant, etc..
Also cleaning out teh freezer, defrosting unknown things to eat. Frozen stuffed peppers anyone?
My convection oven is not making me happy. Last try it browned eh front half of the muffins but not the back. This time it cooked evenly but did not brown the tops at all.
I am NOT a rookie cook and this is making me nuts.

They did it. It's how they started their website years ago -- gleaning info and filling out profiles without people doing it themselves. They have outdated info for me and despite my having told them to delete my info, they refuse to do it.

I have never had a junk drawer. I hate them.

Instead, I have a junk house. Stuff is spreadout everywehre, not crammed into a drawer.

Some movie with Jean Claude Von Damme (sp?), a gorgeous biracial actress from ER (looks a little like Rae Dawn Chong), and Ron Silver, involving time travel.

Jean and woman time travel back to do something in the nation's security interests. He tells her the year and that it's October 9. She laughs and says she'll turn 16 tomorrow.

Jean: "Dont' do something stupid and try to talk to your former self."

Woman: I'd like to tell her to not sleep with Joe Smith after the party, it was pretty disappointing.

Jean: A smart woman would call Joe and give him some advice on doing it better.

To bake muffins? To broil a steak? Sounds like undergrad when I could cook a decent meal in an electric frying pan and a Corningware percolator

If you have the LinkedIn password, I will give instructions on how to take down the profile. If you don't have teh LI password it is harder but still ca be done.

I hooked up the speakers on my new computer. WooHoo. Iceberg Radio and Pandora. As soon as Apple gets its password hack taken care of I will move my music onto the beast..
Older daughter has introduced me to Pink Martini. Its a nice counterpoint to Andrew Lloyd Weber and Cole Porter.
Next up: taxes.
