Pierogi Fever

Have you ever eaten pierogi? Doe you even know what pierogi is? For those of you who are confused right now, pierogi are:

half circular dumplings of unleavened dough, stuffed with cheese, farmer's cheese, mashed or other forms of potato, sauerkraut, cabbage, onion, meat, mushrooms, hard-boiled eggs, dry cottage cheese (the last two are rather Mennonite-specific), or any combination thereof.

The most important thing to know is that they are pretty darn tasty! I recommend trying one sometime. Just some food for thought.

Belly Button Theory

Does the world revolve around my belly button? Sometimes I feel that way, but generally I don't subscribe to this theory. What is the belly button theory? It states that you are the center of the universe and everything around you (and your belly button) is affected by your daily actions. Although.......

The last two times I needed to get gas I was driving home from work and each time I decided to wait until the next morning to fill up because I was too tired. The next morning on both occasions, gas went up over 15 cents a gallon. So the universe was punishing me for being lazy..... Gas prices went up because of little ol' me? Could this be? Maybe everyone should stop blaming George W.?.......Nah, It's gotta be his fault!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The answer to my St. Patrick's Day question........

Is Green Beer Safe?
While the green food coloring added to beer is harmless, the fact that the green stuff is usually added to low quality brew is nearly sacrilegious. On this holiday celebrating all things Irish, it’s best to drink a responsible amount of a quality beverage, like the traditional Guinness, rather than to gorge on green bargain beer (it might seem like a good idea, but you’ll pay for it Tuesday morning). Historically speaking, it might be wise to avoid British brews as well.

Taken to the Cleaners

I normally don't take things to the cleaners very often. But, every so often I have to take my bed comforter to get cleaned because it is too large for my washer and dryer. As, I have mentioned numerous times in my blog, I am a cheapskate, so I usually go to whatever cleaners I have a coupon for. This time I ended up going to a place I had never been before. Anyways... I take in my comforter and drop it off. Two days later I go and pick up it up and pay the fee (which after the coupon was still $15.00. I get home and unwrap it and it smells horribly of cigarette smoke. Now, I don't smoke and it didn't go in smelling of smoke, so what the hell? I took the comforter there to clean it, hence the name cleaners, not get it smelling like an ashtray! So pretty much I paid $15.00 for nothing.... I was taken to the Cleaners, as the old saying goes. Needless to say, I won't be going there ever again.

P.S. For those of you who live in Des Moines... It was Camelot Cleaners on 22nd St, WDM - YOU ARE WARNED!
