Can you see the teeny weeny scoop my husband is using to season the burgers? (The scoop came with the seasoning - totally silly.)
Speaking of cooking have you heard of the The Pioneer Woman? I'll even give you a link to her website if you're not familiar with her: The Pioneer Woman. She just published a cookbook. At first glance she's interesting, but after reading her website for a while I've decided she's like the "Martha Stewart of the internet". The Pioneer Woman cooks! The Pioneer Woman homeschools! The Pioneer Woman teaches photography! The Pioneer Woman writes a children's book! What the Pioneer Woman puts forth as her image is just as ridiculously unrealistic as what Martha Stewart portrays. She seems to be wildly popular though, so I guess it sure sells! (Incidentally, her recipes do look great, but my husband with his genetic predisposition to heart disease would be dead inside a week if I cooked like that.) There are even some "anti Pioneer Woman" websites out there, but I'm not going to link to those.
I have been completely and totally fascinated with British royalty and British history since the royal wedding. I have been checking books out from the library left and right on everything from Princess Diana to the pictorial history of the rise and fall of the British empire. I even watched the Queen's arrival in Ireland live on CNN the other day.
I've been looking into Tracfone to save money on the cell phone bill and, holy moly! If you're a light cell phone user you can save a ton of money by switching to one of the pay as you go cell phones. As long as you make sure the pay as you go company/phone you choose uses the best network in your area (in my case, Verizon) you actually can get as good or better coverage for WAY THE HECK CHEAPER! All the pay as you go phones are actually using one or more of the major carrier's cell towers (T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, etc.). And I thought I didn't want to bother with remembering to keep adding minutes or whatever, but the case of Tracfone, they have a "year of service" card with 800 minutes (if you get a double minutes for life phone), so I would only have to add minutes as I need them, and only have to worry about running out of service once a year! Sorry to go on about this, but after looking at the pay as you go phones I can't believe what a rip off contract phones are for light cell phone users!! My sister-in-law has been happily using a Tracfone for 10 years! Where have I been? I have been paying TOO MUCH!
This is kinda long for "thoughts too short".
If you're a Facebook user and you like games, if you haven't already tried the Gardens of Time game, you should. It's a hidden object type game and it's really fun! And it's not one of those games where you need 85 neighbors or have to spam your friends constantly asking for stuff. Very low pressure.
What do *you* think of the Pioneer Woman? Do you use a pay as you go cell phone, and do you like it? What Facebook games do you play?
