Brownies so delicious they’re probably illegal in 26 states…

Start with your favorite brownie recipe, or ready-mix box, and make according to directions. Then add a box of your favorite flavor instant pudding mix.

Stir in a various assortment of nuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, crushed candy pieces, or mini marshmallows as you like.

The batter will be super-thick. Try not to eat it all as you scrape it into an oiled pan.

Drizzle on sundae toppings like hot fudge, caramel sauce, marshmallow fluff, butterscotch, etc. Drag a fork through if you like to be artsy, but don’t stir.

Bake according to your recipe’s directions, or until they seem done. The more sundae toppings you add, the gooier they’re going to be, even fully cooked.

They’re best warm, but keep for several days. Serve with ice cream if you dare.

Oh, the NSA…

Whether you personally have something to hide, it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling completely comfortable with the NSA’s unblinking eye running over their correspondence and phone records. As a patriotic red-blooded American, you might think one of two things. Either Edward Snowden is a hero who’s blown the lid off a villainous security state, or Snowden is a snivelling crook. And why would you entrust your personal correspondence to an organization known to employ traitors and petty criminals like Edward Snowden?

In the last few days I seem to have become totally addicted to the My Little Pony iOS game. So much so that I’ve actually spent a fair amount of time browsing Brony boards and /r/MLPIOS for hacks and spreadsheets of all the stores and ponies. SPREADSHEETS, people. I am using spreadsheets on a game designed for six year olds. I’m pretty sure there’s no cure for what’s wrong with me.

FML. At this rate I might as well move to a rock farm.

A Very Short List of Reasons Why Life is Unfair

1. The Chunnel does not actually look like the Deeprun Tram.

Alas, dear traveller, no. It is something more like twenty minutes of darkness, and then you’re in France. Which I suppose is something like a metaphor, though for what I’m not entirely sure.

And The Ass Saw The Angel

It’s boffo!

“I took that for a sign.”

Have been reading Ionesco’s “The Hermit” and though it’s a new book the binding is old; each time I turn the page, the glue is so brittle it just breaks and a few more pages fall out. I can’t help but think it’s some sort of brilliant, if unintentional, metaphor for life and our insatiable hunger for the new.

…one of these things is not like the other.

Umm, Netflix? I think we should talk.

R-Money (ain’t) IN DA HOUSE!

“Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up” by R-Money (feat Barack Obama)

…ah, so you’re a waffle man!

Tony stared down at the toaster. A piece of paper had been taped over the top, blocking the slots. Simple block printing stated: “I am a bad toaster and I am not allowed to toast anything until I’ve thought about what I’ve done.”
