You should be listening to this Podcast

Radio Lab has quickly become my favorite Podcast. I recently finished listening to their first "live" show where they talked in depth about Orson Well's War of the World's. They do a great job explaining how the hoax worked and why people keep falling for the gag.

I forbid you

from NOT going to see The Forbidden Kingdom

{Poster picture removed by people that don't want their stuff promoted}

I went to see this under slight duress, but was totally blown away. I had not seen anything about this movie except the TV commercials so I was totally blindsided by what the movie actually was.

On a side note this guy looks totally like The Muther Effin LaBeouf

The Solution of all Life's problems

So the plant has a rule that you can not bring beverages onto the site in thier original containers. I am sure there is a good reason for this, but everyone that I queried had no idea what it is. So I was forced to trek to Wal-mart to pickup a sport bottle of some sort so that I could drink beverages. The only ones that I could find had a core that you are supposed to freeze overnight to keep you beverages cold. The first thing that both Scott and I noticed is that said insert looked quite phallic and pink plastic was probably not the best choice. Well on the way to the snack isle I found something that has turned my outlook on life upside down:

That is right a smiling Batman 10 oz Insulated Big Kids cup!!!!

It is hard to frown when even Batman is smiling.

Sad Paul

Holy Crap it is been a crappy last couple of days. Some of the Things that have gone wrong:

- Hair Salon screws up appointment and new stylist can't follow simple instructions.
- New haircut is way shorter then I like.
- Tickets to see Dalai Lama event at Qwest Field did not show up in time for event.
- Friday plans fall through do to the MIA
- Forgot a belated birthday present for a belated birthday party.
- Interior destruction begins this week on condo
- Face full of dust during prep for said construction cause massive sinus headache that last for two days.
- Replacement X-box 360 and Superman Returns Save Game file not compatible, so I am forced to start game over. BTW Jim is the man for finishing the game without cheats enabled.
- Work on a project that I was trying to get the customer off there ass to do before I left town finally got started today... The day I left town.
- Long drive to Spokane
- I'm in Spokane... BTW anyone have any suggestions for a touristy think to do in Spokane? It is on the 101 list but the only suggestions that locals can come up with is to go to the park. Right now I am thinking I will just settle for eating at the Original Lonestar BBQ. Mainly because it is tasty :)
- A chance to work on a fun project has come up but that means I have to write a good proposal by next Monday while working 10+ hours a day here in Spokane.
- Everything in my condo is pushed in corners and covered in plastic. This development so messed with the funk sway of the pad, that I was so unnerved that I could not sleep until after the alarm went off.
- All of the Monster Cookies are gone.
- When covering the entertainment center I must have screwed up the Slingbox, so I was not able to watch HIMYM tonight as planned. Never mind it is online :) I Heart the Internet

7. Make a batch of Monster Cookies

I promised cookies would be available for those that show up to help me move stuff this weekend and I wanted to knock something off the 101 list, so I spent the evening making a batch of my favorite cookies growing up. I could not find the recipe that I used to use but once again the internet was my friend. This one is as close as I could find to what I recall. Overall I would rate the new recipe a success.

If you are reading this at work say the secret word and give one a try.
