A Weird Little Fact

Transition glasses kind of creep me out.

Glasses - great!
Sunglasses - even better!

But for some reason I get a gross creepy feeling when I see someone wearing transition glasses. It makes me think of a pedophile who drives a white van with no windows offering candy and ice cream to the little children walking home from school. I don't know any pedophiles who drive white vans with no windows. In fact, I don't think I know any pedophiles at all. But, like I said, for some reason, that's what comes to mind when I see transition glasses. Especially when it's really bright inside so the glasses are half way between regular clear glasses and sunglasses. I have no logical explanation for this.
It just gives me the creep out.

Coffee Talk

**Real time update**

I make the coffee in my office. I have no idea if it tastes right because I don't drink the stuff, but my boss still likes me to make it. He claims I make it better than he does. (I really don't see how that's even possible.)

About a year and a half ago my boss, David, told me that he wants me to use the cold water that comes out of the fridge instead of tap water to make the coffee. He said he can tell the difference. (He said this on a day when he actually saw me use tap water.) I don't think he can though. You see the only difference between the tap water and the water the comes out of the fridge is the temperature.

The truth is I used tap water everyday up until that point and he never said anything before.

So now, every once in a while, when I'm feeling adventurous, I like to use tap water to make the coffee, just to see if he can actually tell.

Today is one of those days. :)

David called me while he was in his car on his way to work and asked me to make the coffee, so I ran back to the kitchen and made the coffee as quickly as possible. I even wiped off the counters just in case any tap water might have dripped some where in transit from the tap to the coffee maker.

Experiment time! Ha ha ha!

Midnight Movies

As I've stated numerous times before, one of my favorite pastimes is watching movies. I love a good matinee. I love watching movies at home. I love going to the drive-in. And I absolutely LOVE going to see a movie in the theatre the night or weekend that it comes out. I love it so much that I decided to start a little group facebook.

There is nothing better than going to the first showing of a highly anticipated movie with 30 or so of your super fun friends. The energy and excitement of the movie are intensified when you go with a room full of people who are just as excited to see it as you are. You can cheer and clap all you want because your peers are also doing it. Midnight movies are just super ultra fun!

These are the movies we have seen so far:

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Star Trek

Angels and Demons

Terminator Salvation

The Hangover

next up we will see:

Transformers 2

Public Enemies

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

G.I. JoeAnd possibly others too.

Contest . . . or . . . Not So Much

Remember that one time I held a Recipe Contest on my Food Blog and nobody entered, not even my brother who I begged to enter just so I could get his amazing Strata recipe?

Hmmmm, yeah.
