here am I sitting in a tin can

Well, I did it.  I made some chia pudding.  It was pretty great!  I figured I was in the target demo for it because of my fondness for all things porridgey, and I was correct.  Plus I guess chia is very high in iron, according to a Google search for "Iron content of chia seeds" and "Iron content of beef," which if you have been accompanying me on my travels through blood drive deferment you know is a good thing for anemic me.  I'm so fashionably wan and listless!

Has anybody made a David Bowie knife yet?  It seems like if someone did that and sent it to him it would be quite a nice gift, and maybe he would be so appreciative that he would invite the person who gave it to him over for dinner with him and his beautiful wife Iman, and then maybe everyone would get along so well that they would be laughing and joking together, and sharing things they'd never shared with anyone else, and suddenly David Bowie and Iman would bring me or whoever into their trust circle and disclose that they are actually from an alternate universe and that they liked my knife so much that to show their gratitude they were granting me smiting powers, and then there would be world peace.  I'm just saying it seems like a cool idea.

There used to be, and maybe still is, a fast food chain in Orem or Provo that sold hot dogs and such, and one of their value meals was a "Coney and Tots" and I was like are you kidding me?  It seemed like such an obvious euphemism that I figured they were killing themselves laughing every time somebody ordered it.  And even if it wasn't a euphemism before, it certainly is now, at least at our house.

I watched the second half of season 4 of Arrested Development yesterday, and it pleased me.  We got distracted from finishing it back when it came out, and for whatever reason never got back to it, and finally I said to myself, "Layne.  It is 2015.  It is time to put away childish things.  You must finish what you start."
