Thanks for the heads up - I haven't been paying enough attention.

My goodness - that's a lot of beef.

Some of you have already seen this, but in terms of recipes, here's my current favorite - probably the only thing I know howto make with consistently good results.

Ice cream bread:

Ingredients:
 -------------------
 1 pint of ice cream, softened
 3 tbs sugar
 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour

 (If you don't have self-rising flour, put 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in the measuring cup you're using, then fill the rest of the cup with all-purpose flour to make a total of 1 1/2 cups.)

 Directions:
 -------------------
 1) In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
 2) Once combined, put the dough into a 5 x 9 loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
 3) Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
 4) Cool for 10 minutes, then remove the bread from the pan and put it on a wire rack.

 Tips:
 -------------------
 - You can use less sugar, but this amount seems best. The first time, I forgot it entirely, and it was still OK.
 - To soften the ice cream, leave it out on the counter for 45 minutes to an hour. That should make the edges pretty melted, and the middle kind of soft.
 - When you do the toothpick test, you might want to check a couple of places, depending on the ice cream you used. (Because chocolate chips will stay nice and gooey.)
 - Use real, full-fat ice cream.
 - If you use really chunky ice cream (like Chunky Monkey), you'll want to use a little less flour. I have no idea how much to adjust it... it's just something to think about.

I don't know if anyone could predict the timing, but my total guess would be when the expansion hits.

Sort of watched Melancholia this evening.  (Yeah, that movie where Kirsten Dunst gets naked.)  A strange film, and definitely one that goes in a way different direction than I would have expected.  (Mostly because I missed the first few minutes.)  I really liked the final scenes.

Earlier, I went to see The Lego Movie with my ten year old nephew, we both loved it.  Very funny, often silly, but not JUST silly and funny.  A part of me wants to buy the soundtrack, another part of me worries that if I did, "Everything Is Awesome" would never leave my skull.

Dice, come back and read this spoiler after you see it.  But NOT before.
Code:
You said you were going to see this with your dad, and I thought "that is so perfect," but I couldn't say that without making you wonder why, which would have spoiled the end of the movie, which would have been super sad.  Hope you liked it!

I really need to finish that game. I got very far in, and I was having so much fun that I stopped to try to beat some battle challenges for a while, then had to move on to some other game. When I finally came back to Crisis Core, I had forgotten how to play. :( I think I'd just have to start over again.

I think you're right that all will be revealed in book 3.

It's always tough to decide if you should go straight to the next in a series or not.  I read that whole series straight through and enjoyed it, but if you feel that you may be getting burned out, feel free to take a break.  It'll be there when you get back.

Forgot to mention that last night we watched The Big Lebowski again, and it's still awesome.

We also rewatched The Orphanage, a Spanish film produced by Guillermo Del Toro.  It's very good, but the ending is pretty hard for me to watch.

And we watched Gatsby, which we liked. Baz Luhrman is one of those guys whose work we pretty much always find entertaining, but I think what I liked about it was the story it's based on, which I've never read.

The thing I appreciated about Monsters U was that it had a sort of message of "Hey, not everybody is going to be the star player on the football team, and that's OK.  Find your strengths and be the best you can be at those things."  For example, there's no glory to be found in being an excellent accountant, construction guy, teacher, gaffer, etc.  But those are important jobs, and there's no shame in doing them.  If that's what you're good at, find the joy in it!

I see that as the more grown-up level of the movie, as well.  Just my two cents.
27  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: February 02, 2014, 02:42:33 PM
IMDB says that they were done filming part 1, which is good.  They were definitely still filming part 2, though.  The saddest thing is that he had 3 kids, the oldest of which will turn 11 in March.

I'm looking forward to seeing that once it hits DVD in a week.

And holy cow - Philip Seymour Hoffman died...

In case anyone's interested, the BBC has released a photo of Peter Capaldi in his Doctor Who costume:

Also from the BBC: "Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: 'He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.'"
