Shoes n food

Sorry, but been too busy wrapping, singing, baking, decorating, and whatnot else to blog. I will take a second to note how disturbing it is that this Iraqi journalist managed to throw two shoes at President Bush (here's a great summary of the incident). While I admit that I find the episode funny on one hand, there's truth to the fact that this guy shouldn't have gotten a second shot. If you're trying to inflict physical harm on the heads of two governments, it's tough to stop you from getting a try. But there's no way anyone should get a second chance. Why Bush and Bush's Puppet were still frozen at their podiums by the first attack, and not covered by security as they should be. The journalist doffed his second shoe, wound up and tossed it, not being temporarily removed from the theatre as he should have been.

Conspiracy theory possibilities include that this was a plot to make Bush more sympathetic, or that the Secret Service reviles him as much as the rest of the country.

Anyways, to make up for my blogging absence:

White Blondie Brownies
8 oz White baking chocolate
½ cup Unsalted butter

  2. Line 9 X 9 pan with wax paper. Grease it.
  3. Melt choclate and butter until smooth.
  4. In large mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy.
  5. With mixer running, add sugar, then vanilla.
  6. Gently pour in butter and chocolate.
