Work in progress. Use at your own risk.
- 250 ml butter
- All the bread
- 14 eggs
- 500 ml cream (or ½&½)
- 250 ml maple syrup
- 30 ml vanilla extract
- 15 ml cinnamon
Take a 10×15 pan and put butter into it. Smear that stuff all over the bottom and up the sides, all the way to the top. Fill the pan with bread and/or bread chunks. Leave at least a 1 cm gap at the top. Blend all of the other stuff and pour over the top. Stick it in the fridge overnight and then bake at 205°C (400°F) until pretty, about 25 min.

Dear President Obama,
I just heard the statement you made yesterday about the Plan B decision. I was so outraged that I had to go and find the text so that I could read it. I am incensed that you would appeal to me as a parent to approve of your blatant capitulation to what I see as the Religious Right.
And as I understand it, the reason Kathleen made this decision was she could not be confident that a 10-year-old or an 11-year-old go into a drugstore, should be able — alongside bubble gum or batteries — be able to buy a medication that potentially, if not used properly, could end up having an adverse effect. And I think most parents would probably feel the same way.
- President Obama
The primary “adverse effects” you can get from Plan B are generally menstrual irregularity, nausea and vomiting. Let us compare this to Tylenol which kills almost 500 people a year. I am much more concerned about my 9 year old getting ahold of acetaminophen than levonorgestrel.
If you are going to continue to capitulate to religious conservatives and lie to me about it then I refuse to support you. You will not receive one dollar of my money, nor one minute of my time. I would much rather have some jackass in office who is honest about why he is being a jackass than someone who insists on pissing on my head and telling me it is raining.
With much less respect than I had yesterday,
V. Thane Norton III

Tory: What do you say?
D: Must have been a barge coming through.
T: Try again.
D: Tasted better going down than it did coming up.
T: Three strikes and you’re out, buster.
D: ‘scuse me.

Girl: What if a giant came who was so big he could step down from the sky.
Dad: Guaranteed the US Government would shoot missles at it.
Mom: Honey, do you remember the movie “The Iron Giant”?

With the announcement of John Madden’s retirement, I found myself wondering if he will continue to be the EA poster child for football. Will there be a John Madden 2010 football game. I see no reason they should stop. Frankly, I see no reason for them to stop even if he shoul pass from this mortal coil. Not that I would want anything to happen to him, but I thing that John Madden 2030 NFL Zombie Apocolipse could be one of the best things to happen to sports games. You could pick and chose dead players from the past to be on your team, feeding them cheerleaders and Hollywood stars at the half.

Today with Stuart:
“When I was a cat and Mac was a Stuart, I scratched the carpet. But now I am a Stuart and I don’t scratch the carpet.”

The blog has moved to vtn3.com. Strangely, if you are seeing this, you probably already know that.

So I checked to see if the office was closed Today, I just checked too early. Usually 7:00 is a fine time to check, but Today they changed the message at 7:45. (sigh) Tory is home from school and I could go home too. Why don’t I? Well, for one, I spent 15 min watching a truck unblock 165th. It had gotten itself stuck across both lanes. You can file that under SUCK! Since I am already here, I might as well catch up on the news and my mail, drink my coffee, warm up, and let the roads clear. The other reason is that Today is the day I scheduled to stay late to work on my homework. Might as well do that now and then go home. Maybe I can help Tory make a snowman.
