RTT: Olympics and Apple "Cracks"


Seriously Shawn

Can you believe it's been like 3 weeks since I RTT'd? I was going to do it last week, but I totally spaced on Tuesday and didn't realize it until Wednesday. Curses!

*I love cereal.  LOVE it.  Never for breakfast though.  The thought of cereal for breakfast is icky.  As a general rule we don't buy junky cereal (because I would eat it all), but every now and then I crave it.  Apple Jacks is one of my favorites and for about 3 weeks I went crazy for it.  You might say I was cuckoo of CoCo Puffs, but, you know, with Apple Jacks.  I literally ate nothing but Apple Jacks (except for breakfast) for 3 solid weeks last month.  It was weird.  I was seriously craving it and ate about 4-5 bowls a day-lunch, dinner, snacks.  If I wasn't eating it, I was thinking about eating it!  I could not get enough.  It was embarrassing how many boxes were in the recycle bin.  How insane is that?  I was worried Kellogs was putting crack in the box.  One day though I just didn't want it any more and went back to eating normally.  Maybe I should be on Freaky Eaters or whatever that show is called.

*Last week I was watching a movie that had me totally freaked out (I was alone and I'm a wimp) so I randomly punched in some numbers on the remote and landed on a German channel that was showing a very, very, VERY graphic documentary about the making of porn movies.   Well of course I had to stick around and watch that!  It was eye opening to say the least.  The best part was when they were filming a scene and the "actors" were doing totally raunchy things and then someone would call cut and they'd just start talking or joking or whatever, like they weren't completely naked and had been doing all manner of things to each other just a moment before.

*After hearing all the people in the States gripe and moan over NBC's coverage of the Olympics I'm glad I can watch it on European TV.  They don't talk a lot.

*I get crazy excited when a little country wins a medal.  It's great when a big country medals, but I think it means more for the little countries.

*While the Olympics are great, I love the fact that scientists are being cheered.  I can't wait to see what Curiosity sends back to Earth.  I hope Marvin the Martian is ready.

*You HAVE to watch this (if it's truncated here, go watch it on youtube):

*I can't believe I have to wait until Feb 2013 for the next season of Game of Thrones!  Gah!

*We started 5th grade yesterday!  Can you believe it?  Me neither.  We;re both actually happy to get back to schooling.  Weird as it sounds, taking more than a week or two off (unless we're away on holiday) is too much.  We get bored and I flounder without something to do every day.  Is that crazy?

*I think it might be time for Han Solo's first haircut:

*Have you checked out our Star Wars birthday Extravaganza?  If not, you really should, if for no other reason than to tell me how awesome I am.  :)  Seriously.

*Can someone please explain this to my dogs?

We typically have no less than 20 boxes of cereal in the cupboard, and my husband and I are pretty much the only ones who eat it, but not for breakfast--late night snacking. No milk for me!

I want to watch Olympics with less commentating (I am sure my kids would agree as they have to listen to the folks on tv, as well as me yelling at those folks!)

If I could eat nothing but Frosted Flakes, I would.

Oh my gosh, I love cereal. I love it all. I could eat it at every meal.

Extreme sheepherding is hysterical! I totally agree about Game of Thrones. I need my Tyrion fix. And little Han is adorable no matter what his haircut looks like!
