My ADD Showing Through

Does anyone else feel that Charlotte Lucas had everything to do with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy getting together?  Without her, Mr. Collins would have found a different wife, Elizabeth would not have been invited to go to Kent, and Lady Catherine never would have given the possibility of such a match a single thought.  What a large role for such a minor character!

I just was outside poking around the flower beds.  Something else has been digging around, but this time they left a small shovel in their wake.  Perhaps a small child?  That or cats have suddenly developed opposable thumbs...

Youtube is my new favorite thing.  Well, it's always been a favorite, but I find I like it more and more everyday.  Did you know you could watch full-length features like Emma or Thoroughly Modern Millie?  Sure, they might come in 9 or 17 parts, but it certainly is convenient.  Especially when you are sick with mono and are too tired to get up and put a movie on but have your laptop handy. 

Tonight I made chicken taquitos for dinner.  It was one of those dishes where I found a receipe that looked good, then made up my own recipe which tastes great.  And I never measure anything.  I love cooking.

Have you looked at the shows Cedar City is putting on for the Shakespearean Festival this year? They look absolutely fantastic.  I am dying to go...who wants to go with me?

My Canadian is coming to town in 15 days and he'll be here for 10.  I can hardly wait!

Oh, and by the way, I am totally making these this weekend:

Yep, that's right.  Frozen balls of cookie dough dipped in chocolate and put on a stick.  Could anything ever look more delicious or tempting?  I may need to revise the recipe, however.  A whole stick of butter for only 9 little blobs seems just a bit extreme.

Bon Appetit!
