Happy National Popcorn Day

TWIT would like to wish everyone a very Happy National Popcorn Day.  

It's 6:30 as I type this, so most of you have already had your supper.  But it's not too late to plan a snack for later.  And I can't think of a better snack than some popcorn!  

The 'Rents and I will be having some microwave popcorn later tonight for our snack, and we think you should, too.

Ohio Valley Weather Update

The Weatherazzi says that today is the 10th day in a row that we've had at least one-tenth of an inch of rain or more.  And they say that there is 7-9 more days of this in the forecast. 

But we did get to see the sun today for about 25 minutes.  That's a plus.

Happy National Spicy Food Day

TWIT would like to wish everyone a Happy National Spicy Food Day.  

If you haven't already had time to eat something spicy, you still have time to get something spicy for your supper.  As for us here at The Compound, we had some spicy chili. And we also had some Zantac.

Happy Days Are Here Again

The Old Man and I are both happy tonight -- my Patriots won big yesterday and his Packers squeaked out a win tonight.  If they both win their games next Saturday, they will meet each other at the Super Bowl.  Then we would have a house divided - where the only thing we would agree on is what to have for snacks to eat during the Super Bowl.

Public Service Announcement

To: Alan who works for the Jefferson Count Public School system:

I saw you at Bearno's Pizza yesterday, and I watched you get your pizza from the buffet.  You did not follow the signs --- you used your old plate when you went up to the buffet not once but three times to put new pizza on it.  

You have no idea how much that grossed me out.  When I got back to work, I called the pizza place and told them so they could go and change out the pizzas that were on the buffet. Nobody would want to get pizza using the pie servers that you used that touched your plate, getting your germs all over them.  I'm far from being a germophobe, but everyone (yes, everyone) knows that whenever you go back to get something from any type of buffet, you get a new plate.

Nuff said.
