I’m pleased to say that Jerad got to see Scott Pilgrim and gave it his seal of approval. If you haven’t seen it, please go. As a movie, it’s just well crafted from the bottom up (from sound design to fight choreography to casting to the script). With a reported budget of $60m, it’s probably about halfway to breaking even. If we, the awesome people of the internet, could get it a little closer towards even- it would help send the message to Universal that they were right. That it’s a great movie, and that they shouldn’t be afraid to take risks with unique films.
A neat gadget! Gizmodo might think it’s lame, but as a busy mom, I think that the Boil Buoy is a neat gadget. You set it in your pot of water you’ve set to boil, and when it comes to a boil, it shakes in the water making it chime.
Yes, you probably should be keeping an eye on water, but honestly- things happen. While I’m cooking, if I leave the kitchen, it isn’t to surf the internet (I do take the computer in with me). It’s because a kid in the next room has a diaper that needs changing, spilled something that needs to be cleaned up, or I have two children that are beating each other with train cars. I’m not about to turn off the pot of nearly boiling water to take care of that. An audible reminder that my water is boiling is quite welcome. This is actually available for pre-sale right now, so if you think it’s neat, buy one! It’s $9.99. (And no, I don’t get anything for it. I just think it’s neat)
I started a bunch of blog posts that never really went anywhere this week. Here’s what was on my mind that didn’t make the final cut:( Read the rest of this entry » )
