Lucky Charm Treats

Kelli will be 30 next year. Her metabolism is slowing down big time. She used to be able to drop 5-7 pounds a month easy. Now it's 1 to 2 pounds with the same or more exercise and watching what she eats. Welcome to 30 sucks.

I got a CD in the mail. Pretty Hate Machine by the Nine Inch Nails. This is going to be one of my top 5 CD's ever. I couldn't download any of the songs on Amazon or Microsoft Zune. Not sure why. I got the CD on Amazon for $5.

Windows Vista. Horrible operating system. Quite possibly worse overall than Windows ME. I have it installed on a few computer mostly because I am ignorant. I still prefer the MAC OS then Microsoft XP. Kelli's computer has been slow since we bought it. It's a Core 2 Duo with 3 gigs of RAM and is dog slow. I turned off all the eye candy, extra services and other waste...still slow. Today I tried to install Windows XP. No go. For some reason the installer couldn't find the hard drive. Not sure if it's because it's a SATA drive....or some funky HP formatting BIOS. Will try again tomorrow.

Kelli and I are pretty similar when it comes to buying stuff. For the most part we wait until we have the money and then buy it. We make one exception per year and buy it no interest for 2 or 3 years. This year it was the new washer and dryer. When I bought my new Macbook Pro I waited until I had the money and then bought it. Right now Kelli could use a new laptop....but she won't buy one because she doesn't have the cash. Her current one is just over a year old...but runs like it's 4 years old. I don't know how she stands it.

Went to the dentist yesterday for the first time since 2000. I have been avoiding the dentist out of pure ignorance. The good news was they said that for not having seen a dentist in almost a decade my teeth are better than they expected. I still need a lot of work. One VERY annoying issue is my top three front teeth. They are fake. I fell down a flight of stairs in college ( shoe caught the skip guard....fell on my face) and shattered them. They replaced them with crowns and they were COLOR MATCHED the my existing teeth. Thus I can never have pretty white teeth. Well I could get veneers OVER the crowns....maybe one day.

We watched our first Blue-ray movie last night. The quality was amazing. One disappointment was the BD-Live feature. BD-Live is extra content online that is accessed through the Blue-ray player. Loading took a good minute. Once was hard to navigate and well kind boring. Hopefully people get the Profile 2.0 players the BD-Live content will get better.

I made Lucky Charm treats instead of Rice Krispy treats. I was a little worried about having too much marshmallow action....turned out very good!

I added a countdown to Disney World in the top left hand corner....because I wanted to.
