Giggle of the Day:


I've always been better at remembering faces than names. This test confirms it! I got a 100% Recognition Score and a 79% Temporal Memory score (which would probably have been higher if I'd know from the get-go that's what was being measured).

How about you?

(Thanks, Elizabeth!)

For those of us singletons who'll never bake a cake because we're afraid we'd eat the entire thing, this is just the coolest:


1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour (that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)
a small splash of vanilla essence

Spray PAM in mug.

In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients well.

Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla essence, and mix again.

Pour mixture into mug.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (This can serve 2)

And why is this is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

An argument my brother will raise the next time Sainted SIL complains...

These are graduate students? I'd expect this from teenagers, but not from grad students. Kellogg is a prestigious school, and I'm sure they're livid about this.

Shot hot tea right out my nose when I read this.

Thanks for the link to the Palin piece -- I'll definitely include it in the next Carnival of Satire!
