I just thought of this earlier this week (though others probably though of it ages ago).

To increase the variety of flavors of oatmeal, use fruit juice instead of water to make it with.  Then your oatmeal tastes like whatever heated-up juice you added to it.  [I advise not using it with already-flavored oatmeal, as it tends to become way too sweet since they have sugar added already, so the juice puts it over the top.]

I came up with this because the apple-cinnamon I was eating earlier this week just wasn't 'appley' enough (or cinnamony, but that was easily taken care of).  I had apple juice in the fridge, so next time I used that and - BAM! - apple oatmeal.  I tried the same with some 'Crapple' (my name for the cranberry apple juice I enjoy from Trader Joes) for the cranberry oatmeal I had.  Both were very good if one got past the too-sweet condition.  I plan on just getting plain, unsweetened oatmeal next, and dried fruit (apple, cranberries, whatever).  Since the plain stuff is available in larger containers it'll end up being a lot cheaper than the individual-packet stuff too, as well as being better for the environment.

I saw a thing on tumblr for "boiled cider syrup", which is exactly what it sounds like -- apple cider boiled until it thickens. It sounds like it would work well for what you describe, along with some nuts and cinnamon.

I... Can't... Remember!  Strangely that seems to be the only thing I can't remember.

I'd like Disney to make a 'bathroom set' of Phineas and Ferb accessories, if only so they'd make a liquid-soap dispenser I thought up:

                Candace with her head as the dispenser and neck as the plunger. ;D

I am running on dangerously little sleep, but I still feel fine. At what point am I going to crash and burn?

36 hours.  But your mileage may vary...   ;D

But I only need about 5 to 6 hours a night, less that that for a few nights in a row and I crash, more than that and I don't sleep the next night.

Technically this isn't 'random'... as a matter of fact, it was relevant to my 'day out of the house' during this 2-week stretch....

...Maybe I shouldn't write it here at all. :)


Oh, well...

I got a call late last week that my chiropractor was not going to be in tomorrow for my usual appointment.  So I called and we set up for today.

Well, today he explained what was going on and why he had to cancel.  His brother-in-law had an important appearance to make, and asked him to be there.

Most people here would give less than a shit about that.

Except his brother-in-law is Sam Raimi, and the 'appearance he had to make' tomorrow was for the special screening/opening of his latest film - 'Oz: the Great and Powerful' - in Royal Oak Michigan.


Can you believe that: he cancelled MY appointment . . . for that?!!  ;)

[Oh, and my chiropractor's two kids are in the film briefly.]

That film was such a boon for this area, so many of my friends are in it and are dead excited about it opening. :)
