The big news of today is we found a big flake of raisin bran crunch. I don't know if it's quite as big as the one featured in the coming link but it's pretty big. You can get some idea of what my life is like because I then proceeded to google for "largest flake" and "giant flake".

Well the bad news is that apparently big cornflakes are worth something but big flakes of raisin bran crunch are not, haha.

Nobody bought this raisin bran flake, but someone bought this cornflake for $1350 and some other people are bidding on this cornflake, it was only up to $25.49 when I looked but it could go higher.

I was surprised to see the Illinois cornflake go for so much, since it's not religious. That Virgin-Mary-burned-into-the-grilled-cheese-sandwich went for much more. Mmmmm, sacrilicious.

The thing is, some trivia buff bought it to show off as a cornflake shaped like Illinois, but now it's much more famous as the cornflake some idiot paid $1350 for.

Weather - the most boring conversational topic?!?

Well, perhaps not if you live in ND, I dunno. There's snow on the ground *and* dandelions in the lawn right now. That's a first, at least in my memory. Go »

Now I remember why I live in North Dakota

It got hot all of a sudden the last few days, or what passes for hot in ND in early April (50s). It's like a spring break video out there, people prancing around in bikinis yelling "woo"... OK not quite but there is a marked change in demeanor. Go »

Sewing Project?

So... we are into this goofy show "The Prisoner" lately and decided we want to go as people from that show for Halloween. That is, assuming anyone invites us to a party of any kind. Go »

American Gothic

Well, for quite a while I have had nothing to say to anyone about anything and it is getting a bit claustrophobic. So I figured I should start saying some things into the void, dumb and trivial as they might be. A while back there was a video store closing sale so we picked up a number of TV series on DVD at 75% off. Go »

A wish

You know, it would be nice to be the kind of person who could sometimes do or say things *without* regretting them. I think that would be on my top three list of wishes :) Just to turn off a part of my brain. It's really freakin cold out. Go »

Our first Con?

Darrell and I are thinking of going to this: http://www.valleycon.com/. We have never been to such an event before, and it is kind of expensive, but: A. Londo is one of our favorite TV characters ever B. Go »
