so yesterday, in celebration of her defeat of a flat tire, lauri made brownies. the box claims that it contains 20 servings of brownie. i would estimate that we ate 18 of those yesterday, and the last 2 today.
also: you know how the sides of the brownie mass (where the batter is up against the pan) get crunchy during baking, while the rest of it gets soft and cakelike? the crunchy part is my favorite part.
in other healthy news, at the hippie co-op yesterday, i bought EMPOWER cereal because it has 100% of nutrients i've never even heard of before (one just can't get enough selenium, i've always said).
NUTRITION BLEND: calcium carbonate, dicalcium phosphate, calcium phosphate, vitamin e (dl alpha tocopheryl acetate [note the lack of this parenthesis ever closing. i think the riboflavins melted their vitamin punctuation], sodium selenite, vitamin c (sodium ascorbate), natural beta carotene, niacinamide, zinc oxide, reduced iron, calcium pantothenate, vitamin b6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride), vitamin b1 (thiamin mononitrate), riboflavin, vitamin d3, vitamin b12 (cyanocalamine), folic acid.it woudln't be half bad either, if they hadn't tossed in some offputtingly false blueberry flavoring. so i dumped some brown sugar on it, because it didn't have enough vitamin sugar.
state: magically delicious
np: imogen heap - speak for yourself - 6 - clear the area
wasn't selenium the element they used to kill the evil goo monsters in Evolution?
this is entirely possible; i never saw evolution. but clearly all that movie needed was a good supply of EMPOWER.
this just now occurred to me, but i like the idea of eating a big bowl of empowerment for breakfast every morning.
yay to empowerment. by the way, did you know that santa claus had a donkey? abc family has been running christmas shows every week night at 7 p.m. and, for the most part, i enjoy those old rankin bass claymation stories, but a donkey for santa? come on people. it's called Nestor the long faced donkey or something equally amazdiculous. that is all. have a nice day.
i did not know this! did nester help pull the sleigh? did all of the other donkeys used to laugh and call him names? did they never let poor nester join in any donkey games?
my favorite claymation show is the one with the dinosaurs and the self-playing bells
it's nester the long-eared christmas donkey. it's as amazing as it sounds.
i clearly have a lot to learn about christmas.

The crunchy is also my favorite part.
i would offer to fight you for it, but since most people will be partying in the gooey center, there shoudl be plenty of crunchy for both of us
Vitamin suger is the most important some would say.
I would say that a cereal with that mmany vitamins must taste like cardboard flavored rust.
other than the nasty fake blueberry flavor they tossed in, it tastes basically like cheerios, which i dig. also, i like the idea of any sort of flavored rust
