– Calvin hates homemade baked macaroni and cheese – he prefers the nuclear orange Kraft stuff. I adore homemade macncheese. I have a great recipe of my grandmother’s, and I also came across Pioneer Woman’s recipe for it today, which is very similar to Grammy’s (except Grammy’s didn’t have the egg – I would SO not make it with the egg… yeeeuck bleeeccchh flaaagm). Yet, I won’t get to make it, like, ever. I’d be the only one to eat it, you can’t make just a single serving of the stuff (you just CAN’T), and that much pasta and cheese and butter and milk is SO not part of my diet.
Excuse me while I quietly sob.
– We watched Dr. Phil last night (I know), and after that we watched about twenty minutes of Oprah (I KNOW). I wanted to see what Heather Armstrong looked and sounded like (I’ve never watched her self-vids on her blog). Calvin twitched on his end of the couch the whole time (mommies bitching about being mommies = Pet Peeve). We watched Heather’s brief segment in which she rambled about pipe cleaners and poo. I’ll admit myself it wasn’t her best or most articulate moment (some folks just come across better in written format – I suspect I might be one of them, too); however, I do like reading her blog from time to time. Calvin, however, was INCENSED. He turned to me and said, “Laura, that woman is an idiot. I FORBID you from reading her blog ever again.” Now, dear Innernets, tell me, what would YOU do if your husband started a sentence with, “I forbid you…”?
Yeah, me too.
Anyway, he went to her blog to comment on his opinion of her segment, found the comments closed (she rarely opens them anymore), and decided that was proof positive of her idiocy and fear of knowing what people REALLY think of her. I shall have to point him to the next entry she does of the hate e-mail and hate comments she gets – they crack me up. Anyway. The path is now clear for him to flame away about her in my comments.
You’re welcome, dear.
– I got this book from Amazon in the mail yesterday, and spent a couple of hours in the evening perusing it and planning our trip to Yellowstone (this far it’s an excellent book, very well laid out and with tons of inside information). Unfortunately, it looks like all of the in-park accommodations are already booked, so we’ll have to stay in either Jackson/Jackson Hole, or Cody (or a couple of nights in both). Intrepid readers! Have any of you ever been to either place? Any recommendations? Also, any suggestions for other things to do while we’re in that area of the country? Over to Idaho? Down to Colorado? Up to Montana?
– Finally, a video for Calvin. Because he is.
