Ground up an 1/8 cup of pumpkin seeds and dumped that into a frying pan which in which I was sautéeing half a very thinly sliced yellow onion. Sprinkled the entire mixture with red curry & chili power and added a handful of fresh sprouts. Once that mixture was tender I whipped it up in some eggs for breakfast. C'est Manifique!

Watched The Soprans Season 4 in two sittings at my in-laws while we were away. Yesterday, being our first Friday night back, and with no BSG to keep us occupied, we rented Disc 1 of The Sopranos Season 5 with galinda822 who had come over for a gift exchange with the children. My wife had created a gorgeous herb salad with a side of jasmine rice she cooked with organic coconut and graded orange peel. We washed dinner down with a bottle of Kansan Spätlese.

I took the kids to Borders where they each picked out two books from the gift cards galinda gave them (in addition to Polly Pocket & Power Rangers toys - can you say 'spoiled?') then on to galinda's to hook up the surround sound system she rec'd for Xmas. I got all the cabling laid out, thread everything through and built speaker stands. Plugged everything in only to discover her Dish is using the coax as its default output in place of the component connections, and I couldn't figure out how to force the DVR to swap outputs, so I've left that project for the weekend after photogoot is here.

Came home and finally watched Disc 1 of The Godfather DVD Collection. It was good. Better than I remembered. Can't wait to get to the third one, though. I have that one on laserdisc, but this will be the first time I've seen it on DVD.

Its much too late for me to still be awake.

Thanks for everything this weekend!

Friday night was fantastic...the food, the Spatlese, The Sopranos and watching the kids open their gifts (spoiling is an Aunts job!)
Can't wait for us to try out the surround system - start thinking of the perfect movie to test it!!!

Re: Thanks for everything this weekend!

The Fifth Element would be an EXCELLENT choice to test the surround system.

Starship Troopers would also be EXCELLENT but the bugs make Eric scared.

Platoon would also be a good choice.

Oh, how was the soup Friday night? Eric would not tell me.

I do own The Fifth Element so I'll add that to the list of possibilities.

Jurassic Park is also a good choice to test a surround system. Back in college, a friend of mine hooked up 8 speakers to his system. You could actually feel the room shake as the dinosaurs went from one side of the room to the other (or from one side of the screen to the other).

Aye, I agree with you, 'tis far to late for you to be up.

Hmm... why does it seem that your headings rarely have anything to do with your post's??

Au contraire! That was the line Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) says to his brother Fredo Corleone in Vegas ;)

I hate it when you can't get shit to work.


so I've left that project for the weekend after photogoot is here.
Did you ever think that he could put his mad Program Manager skillz to work and re-program that fat bastard?

My "mad skillz”, with a z even? You sir are a hipster dufus. But aside from that any contribution I may make to the surround system configuration problem would be made from my considerable experience co-engineering the “Tower Of Power” with Mr. H. However I am confident the problem will be quickly resolved by my resourceful friend without my aid, so that we may all enjoy each others company in person in the short 3 days I will be on the ground in St Louis. Besides the most important item you ignore with your comment is that I do not know Galinda882 well enough to spend time on my back in her living room!

That salad sounds lovely!

You've reminded me that I need to rent season 2 of the Sopranos.
