Journal, Lauren

Before I created the internet, people had to rely on these unwieldy bound stacks of paper called books’ that were full of tons of information – mostly irrelevant to what you actually needed to know. Here is an example of one such book – a cookbook that Lloyd bought at an auction years and years ago. It is divided into all kinds of categories – main dishes, side dishes, desserts, baby food, cocktails, how to make your own sausage, blah blah blah. It has two things in it that I need – how long do you boil eggs to make them hard boiled, and my sister’s awesome carrot cake recipe taped to the inside. God bless the internet.

Makin' mufins for tomorrow

    I thought Al Gore invented the internet? Was it the two of you working together, or is he part of the vast left-wing conspiracy?

    How do you find these videos? Do you just sit and surf YouTube sometimes?
    (I think the fact that it’s not in English makes it even more funny.)

    Also, so all of you know that I am not a slacker, it’s actually 6:47 a.m. here.

      I, on the other hand, am a slacker. It’s 9:14. It’s where Lauren’s wasted time becomes Deanne’s wasted time. Oh, and by the way, the stupid stack on my stupid desk just got an inch taller. It’s these stupid thank yous.

      Lauren, you’re a very tricky one! Now I’m going to have to go back and review Every Single Post to be sure I haven’t missed an Easter Egg.

      Speaking of Easter Eggs, Leo just showed me the Easter Egg of Gollum on the Two Towers DVD. Can you believe that I’ve had the movie since the special edition boxed set came out in the stores and I still hadn’t bothered to find the Easter Eggs? I cried, it was so funny. (Either that, or it was really late and I was tired so it just struck me as funny.)

    Good morning campers! Who wants biscuits and gravy?


  5. Lauren Said on:

    Hooray! Charles is here! When I’ve had some coffee and breakfast (not biscuits and gravy, though), I’ll make a post.
