I just left a ranting somewhat incoherent message on the voice mail of the restoration company. There was no option to delete, so I had to leave it on there. Oops.

Someone will have an awfully good Monday!

I made two pastry doughs last night. One with AP flour and pastry flour, the other with AP and wheat flour. I put them in the fridge, thinking, I better remember which is which. But, oh, that wont be a problem, because one is pale and one brown.
Yup.

It's a nice touch that the guy walks right behind the newscaster, texting away, before the texter girl makes her entrance. Kind of sets the stage.

Kitchen light went poof, so I searched far and wide for a replacement. Finally found the lone spare bulb, only to drop it when I took it out of the package. Crap.

I will have to rob one of the bedroom light fixtures so I won't have to cook in the dark.

Seriously, can anyone tell me why Katy straps her boobs down in this video? It's as if they were going to make her pretend to be a dude to join the military, then they realized women join the military too; but that makes no sense, because she's already seen the recruitment ad for women.

Maybe her character is supposed to be extremely stupid.

Maybe they just wanted to have Katy do something with her boobs (usually, she shoots fireworks from them).

Anyone help with this?

Babbo opened for lunch today for the first time ever and the crew at Eater is acting like Moses has come down from the mountain top. There are at least four posts about it on their front page, including a live blog of a staffer's lunch.

Well, say you're about to sneak into a room filled with enemy soldiers. It wouldn't be very effective if your breasts entered three minutes before the rest of you.

I was hoping for some insight on Katy's boob-strapping. I guess nobody can bear the thought of watching the video, but it comes quite early.

I think I did have that as another alternative: that Katy's boobs are just too prominent for the military - but I didn't see why they would seek to highlight that fact in the video.

ETA: Maybe it's some kind of dig at Sesame Street, like, "Ho, ho, I guess I should have done this before meeting Kermit."

Right. Just think about what kind of missions she'd always get: "Katy you go in first and distract them, and we'll sneak in the other side."
