Very Merry

Hope yours was too!

Woo, woo!

We took the Zoo Train, we took the Zoo Train!
Zoo Lights on Sunday night was fun and flashy, and busy. Someone could put their kid through college by setting up a hot chocolate stand next to the station.

Last Night I dreamt that I met my ho self from a parallel universe, and she was really tall and pretty. We were at a library-slash-hair salon and I got my hair colored but it was still the same color afterwards. Then a bomb fell onto the telephone wire outside and made all the library shelves fall down.

What do you think it means?

P: I think it means you're pregnant.

"She eats and poops just like a real baby! Feed her or give her a bottle, and then get ready to change her messy diaper! She's ready to play, laugh and talk with you, and you will love taking care of her! When she is hungry you can mix up some of her special food! She really eats and tells you how she likes it with fun phrases like, Mmm..good! She'll even tell you it's time to change her diaper when she says, Uh-oh, I made a stinky! When BABY ALIVE is tired, she gets drowsy and falls asleep! Doll comes with dress, 2 doll diapers, bottle with nipple and cap, bowl, spoon, 4 packets of doll food and bib."
Gee, thanks, Doc. ;)

The Answer

OK, apologies. There is no porridge. There is a spoon... but no porridge. That's right, you've been duped into another one of my rants. For several years now, I've been eating my 'light meals' and portions (soups, beans, yogurt, ice cream) out of our lovely how-did-we-ever-like-that-pattern Pier 1 mugs. Assuming they petite, I felt comfortable filling it more than half full of whatever I was attempting to have 'a bit' of. WELL.
Last week I got the bright idea to actually measure the volume of each dish; soup/pasta bowl, cereal bowl, and mug. Guess what? They all hold the same amount of liquid: 2 cups! Sonofabitch, if you pardon. Actually, the mug held just over 1/8 cup less than the others. Still, gaa! So mystery anonymous person, you were right - it was a trick question. Isn't it amazing how easily any innocent person can be deceived?
Stay tuned for further research into the nutritional content of 2 Cups of various foods. Maybe this portion control issue - and not baseball - should be brought before congress. It's a crime, I tell you!
Isn't ignorance bliss?

Cabinet @uiz

How much porridge do you think each dish can hold?
