Since no one is talking about politics (boring LJ!) this seems like a good time to put together another calorie counting post :)

I also had a random note for Friday the 19th: "stuff 670"

I'm hoping that was just a note about how many calories i was supposed to eat for dinner before i started measuring stuff out, otherwise i'me about 670 mystery calories over what i should have been :)

Bad song!

While thinking about last night's presidential debate i very unfortunately managed to get a song stuck in my head. The chorus keeps alternating between "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran" and "Keyes Keyes Keyes, Keyes on Van Nuys." That song has gotten so mangled by popular culture that i don't even know what it _is_ anymore! =P


The bag of frozen vegetables i got at Costco says that 1 serving (90 calories) is about 85 grams. However if i measure out 255 grams of frozen vegetables and then cook them, when i'm done they only weigh about 225-230 grams. I presume they meant the frozen weight since that's the point you would normally be measuring (again, i presume) but i'm not actually sure.

It makes me happy when old and relatively rare books that i really enjoyed get reprinted, but why do they have to reprint them as trade paperbacks? Trade paperbacks seem to combine the worst attributes of both normal paperbacks and hardbacks =P

I'm pretty sure i have every single Futurama episode on DVD, so why do i always get excited when i'm able to catch an episode on the Comedy Network?
