the weather or not

Has the temperature in the beautiful city of Austin finally dipped below 90 degrees? I hear it is supposed to hang around for the next ten days. (:smile:) My brain can actually function optimally. The unreasonable heat really drags me down, not so much the summer itself. I’m looking forward to the milder weather.
I went […]

the thrill of procrastination

The weekend has flown by once again. Updating these records can be mind-numbing, but it needs to be done. We’re getting close to 4 years of keeping this ship afloat.

the filet-o-fish jingle + lyrics

In 2009, McDonald’s aired a television commercial featuring a Big Mouth Billy Bass-type character named Frankie the Fish. This “copyfish” sang an annoying jingle to a Casio keyboard-quality tune and made its way into our heads like a parasite.
With Lent going on right now, many restaurants have brought back their fish, shrimp, and seafood menu […]

the lemon meringue pie for pi day

For Pi Day yesterday, Mare made her first lemon meringue pie from scratch. The pie consists of three parts: the crust, the lemon filling, and the meringue.
The recipes came from Allrecipes.com: Pie Crust IV & Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie.
