Flowing with Heineken and honey

There was a funny story out of Norway where a woman got beer out of her kitchen faucet instead of water. "It almost seemed like a miracle," the AP story said. In my head, I am reminded of the scene in Animal House, where they attack the parade, and the sorority girl sails through the window of the teen boy reading Playboy, landing on the bed, and he says "Thank you God!"

We actually toyed with the idea of installing a tap in the sink when we remodeled our kitchen. Well, not seriously. Or maybe. My contractor took half his salary in beer pretty much. Seriously. He was a relative though. And yes, my counters are level. Wouldn't that be cool though, having a keg with a tap right in your own sink? They have amazing things now when it comes to kitchen design. Hubby was telling me about a scale built into the countertop, which I thought was cool, but seriously, how often are you going to need to weigh out a portion? Maybe if you are a serious Weight Watcher, but even now they do the points thing...

Ugh, can I be any more boring? I have all these new visitors coming by because I did a guest post for Lisa and I feel all this pressure to be all witty and stuff so they come back. I love company. I love to cook you know. I'll feed you if you stay. If not literally then metaphorically, spiritually, or intellectually. I'll stimulate you in some capacity, trust me. ;-)

Issac Hayes is quitting South Park because they made fun of Scientology.


"There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins," the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said. Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored," he continued. "As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices."
Sounds admirable. However...
"South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, "This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem ---and he's cashed plenty of checks ---with our show making fun of Christians."
Hmmm. He could have a point. I bet the Scientology people were all over his ass after it aired and threatened to black-list him. No more free flights in Travolta's plane, etc.
Ok, that was two radically different topics. I better stop now while I'm behind. Must clean kitchen so when the girls come in for coffee after our walk it doesn't look like I am the unorganized, lazy slacker that I am. Though I know their kitchens look the same when I'm not there. Did that last line make sense?

I like the beer idea. I think it is silly that he thinks it is perfectly make fun of other groups, but when it touches on something you believe it is not okay.
