Check out this lady's blog!

And she runs another website too!

I wasted at least an hour between the two, now you can too!

Why Rice Krispies Go Snap, Crackle, Pop!

I saw this on Yahoo today and couldn't resist posting. Edited to remove some boring content and stupid people quotes:

“It’s not rocket science.” However, over the years Labuza and other cereal scientists have come up with some pretty good suggestions to explain where the noises come from.

Shattered glass

A Rice Krispie behaves like a piece of glass. If you hit it hard, it’ll break into a puzzle of a million pieces that, if you had the patience, you could put back together again. The high temperature at which the cereal’s cooked creates extremely strong bonds that hold the rice’s starch molecules together. The strong bonds make the rice act like glass. During the cooking process, each piece of rice expands and a network of air-filled caves and tunnels form inside.

Under pressure

When you pour milk into your breakfast bowl, the cereal absorbs the milk. As milk flows into the crispy kernel, the liquid puts pressure on the air inside and pushes it around. The air shoves against each pocket’s walls until they shatter, forcing out a snap, or a crackle, or, as you, know, sometimes a pop. You can also see tiny air bubbles escaping to the surface. The race is now on. Because once the rice is wet enough, all the air pockets have burst, the sounds stop, and you're left in peace and quiet to eat soggy cereal.

People and the Horses They Ride On....

Today is definitely Monday. The day started at 1:22 a.m. when Emily decided that she was no longer going to sleep in her bed, and only my bed would do and only after she punched and kicked the pillows, the blanket and my lower back for 45 minutes. Then, I get to work to find out that the other assistant quit. Really though, no big deal, I was kind of bored anyways and am actually looking forward to the potential extra duties. But, again, all off topic. The reason for my post: Why do some people feel that what they have to say is so much more important than what I have to say. For example, I work with a woman who is single and 40 and all she talks about all day long is her stupid dogs. Do I listen? Yes. Do I get bored of listening? Yes. Would I ever say anything mean about her dogs or her. No. It's her life, and although annoying, its not harmful to listen to a few words about her Pride and Joy. I love poker. I barely talk to anyone at work, but I mentioned to Dog Lady that I had some people over to play Poker on Saturday night, blah blah blah. Two minute story tops. Then, later she was at my desk and asked me a question about Poker, so I answered. She then made a nasty comment about "God Love You, but all you do is talk about Poker". I'm sorry, I'll run out tonight and get a 6 pound lesbian poodle and then we'll have more in common tomorrow. Have a good night.

My Grandma knows how to Email

And she forwarded me this:

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Ten Things I'll Never Get to Do Again....

I started thinking today about some things I'll never get to do again - for various reasons. Below are the first 10 things that pop into my tired little head:

10.) Jamboree in the Hills - it's 1100 miles away from home, costs a lot of money, our friends don't really even go anymore (except for Mike and Karen), and seriously - 4 days of camping in the hot sun doesn't even sound fun.

9.) Pick up random men at the bar - Jeremy might get mad and the dog might bite them

8.) Tell my boss to kiss off - I have a mortgage payment and a baby to take care of now, plus I'm 27, I have to be more mature than that

7.) Decide on Thursday to leave on Friday afternoon to go to Tennessee/ Mountaineer/ Cincinnati with my friends - See #8

6.) Exist on Beer and Bar Food for a week - I got hospitalized once for that and after watching Survivor last night, I'll never be that mean to my body again!

5.) Take out a student loan then drop out of school and spend 3 months doing nothing and using the loan to pay my rent - it took me 8 years to pay off that summer!

4.) Drink full calorie soda - I just don't like it anymore, once you go Diet, you'll never go back

3.) Be able to take Emily whenever I fly somewhere for FREE - she turns two in July, those days are almost over

2.) A walkover back handspring - Not that I ever could, but I know for sure that I'll never get to do it again

1.) Experience all the emotions of being pregnant with your first child - including the good (folding and refolding those little baby clothes) and the bad (being so mad at Jeremy for no reason that I threw applesauce at him!)

Another Sunny Weekend

And what did I get to do? Sit inside, watch the kid and dog, and clean my house. Whoopie.

Why does Jeremy get to have all the fun? He got to play on the boat all day yesterday with my Dad, and then when he FINALLY makes it home, he quickly eats all of the spaghetti that I had cooked and was planning on eating for dinner, then he spends an hour out back talking to the neighbor and another hour watering his precious palm trees.

All I wanted to do was go to the beach. We've been here over 6 months now and I've gotten to have fun in the sun maybe twice. Argh.
