I should know better than to try to cook... I nearly set the apartment on fire due to inattention to detail tonight. The "detail" I wasn't attending to was the toaster, which was busily turning my toast into charcoal while I was trying to get online this evening. I actually forgot that I had put toast in, so that when the smoke alarm went off, I couldn't figure out for a moment where the smoke was coming from. I thought it was the burner that I was using to boil spaghetti. Then I realized the deal, and quickly baptised my chartoast in the sink. Then I had to open the door to the apartment and a window and wave about with a newspaper to get the noise, the noise! to stop. The place still smells a bit like ash. Ugh!

I am seriously the movie magnet these days. I already wrote about the movie gift certificates that I won at work, but I forgot to tell that the same day I won 6 movie rentals from a radio station for knowing that Bob Hope used to own part of the Cleveland Indians. Then today I got a letter from Columbia House, with whom I used to have a membership for DVD's. I say used to, because I forgot to pay a bill from them and got disinvited to be a member. I paid the bill about a month or two ago as part of my "get out of debt" New Year's resolution. Anyway, today I got a notice from them that I can pick out several DVD's to fulfill my membership, since I already paid for them. So that's 4 "free" DVD's for my collection! I think I'm getting both the Austin Powers movies that are out so far, and a couple others that I haven't definitely decided on yet. This should keep me busy for a while.

Saturday is our monthly gathering at VBCC. For details, check over at The Vine. Anyone who can come join us, we'd love to see y'all!
