7 Quick Takes Friday #1

— 1 —

I have been following the Conversion Diary blog for a while as a lurker (I admit it), and I would highly recommend it. It is very thought provoking. It is so thought-provoking that I don’t follow in my Google Reader because I can’t handle reading it unless I am in the right frame of mind. Also, I rarely comment because Jennifer gets so many comments that mine are rarely needed. Having no kids yet and not being Catholic myself, I usually don’t have anything to contribute that would be helpful anyway. I learn more from the comments others make.

I am still online for work right now, I have 5 more hours left in my shift. Things have been slow the last few hours, but I expect that means that all hell is about to break loose and I’ll be online past the usual quitting time of 10 PM. Is it a full moon? Full moons have been proven to correspond with my co-workers’ craziness increasing.

Last night we got to see RiffTrax Live with the original cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffing on Plan 9 From Outer Space. I was a little tired but it was date night, and since our relationship was founded in part on our mutual love of MST3K, I considered it essential that we see this, and I was glad we did. I could never have made it through that horrible movie without the riffing, for sure. I love those guys.

I just watched the episode where SpongeBob Squarepants almost gets his boat driver’s license. And now it is snowing under the sea. That makes no sense!

I am trying to get better about posting more frequently on this blog even if I have to go a little off-topic because I want to be interesting. I am considering using some blog writers’ prompts from other sites on some days. If you know of any good ones, let me know!

My husband requested a main dish with fruit this week and I wanted to try this recipe from AllRecipes.com. Being a vegetarian, I don’t buy meat much. I had to go to 3 stores trying to find free-range chicken that was less than $8/lb. I eventually gave up and bought regular we-torture-our-chickens-in-factory-farms chicken which was still $8 a pound just because it was organic. Ridiculous that it was 1) so difficult to find free-range chicken, and 2) so extremely expensive even for the regular kind just because they were fed grain instead of the parts of other chickens. They still grew up never seeing the sunlight and with their beaks and feet cut off. I do not miss meat at all.

In case anyone cares, the cat has started pooping outside the box again. Despite the fact that I gave up the green litter and went back to the kind that never biodegrades, we bought a new litter box, we took off the hoods of both boxes, and we bought a new mat, she is still doing it. I have no idea why. I am completely out of ideas.

    My friend and fellow blogger wrote a post tonight concerning how he was different one year ago. You could try something like that, maybe? I tried it, so you can look at my blog if you don’t get what I mean.

    By the way, I found you on Conversion Diary.

    I don’t know what do about the cat, I am sorry. Also I agree with CH try a post about your self then and now style. I don’t know why it is so hard to find free range chicken did you try whole paycheck?

    Thanks for joining in! These were a fun read. Re: #7, every time I’ve ever had a cat I end up with that same problem, so let us know if you ever figure out how to get them to consistently use the litter box.

    #3 – I loooooove MSTK3K although I haven’t seen it in forever. Thanks for the reminder — I’m going to go look for some episodes to watch.

    Thanks for participating and for the kind words about my site! Glad to have discovered yours.
